Additive Manufacturing Enables Fast Modification of Molds

Direct metal deposition (DMD) can be up to 250-330% faster than manual laser cladding. New Additive Manufacturing 2.0 (AM 2.0)-capable laser welding systems can now be equipped with a recently developed powder nozzle from O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH that permits fully automatic layerwise buildup. This solution holds enormous potential for tool and mold making applications at small and midsized companies.

Since the start of the 21st century, laser cladding has become established as a highly effective process for modifying and repairing injection molds and dies. (más…)

All-new Haltian small sensors utilize Wirepas Connectivity

Haltian expands its Internet of Things (IoT) platform with small sensors. The platform consists of the Thingsee gateway plus the Thingsee POD and TAG sensors. The sensors can be used for tracking and monitoring assets, goods and people in a completely new, and a far more cost-effective manner. The Thingsee router delivers the data collected from the sensors directly to the client’s back-end systems via a mobile connection.

«Thanks to its data acquisition capabilities and cost efficiency, we believe that our IoT platform will revolutionize the asset tracking and logistic operations of several businesses.» says Haltian CEO Pasi Leipälä. (más…)

Capacitive switches from knitter-switch: vandal-resistant and smart

The capacitive switches from knitter-switch, series CTK, are an alternative to the popular anti-vandal pushbuttons: Their IK-rating (mechanical resistance of the visible parts) of IK10 is conform to highest requirement categories. And also the IP rating for dust and water is IP68. But they are smarter than the normal vandal resistant types: Because of integrated electronic they can be used with momentary and latching function and NO, NC or changeover contact. Ring illumination, legend etching or indicator light with 1 or 2 LEDs are possible. (más…)

From machine component to information manager

Christian Zingg, Director of the Innovation & Global Machine Building Segment at Eaton

In the discussion about the intelligent factories of the future, many small and medium-sized machine and plant manufacturers are often unsure how to best approach Industry 4.0. In many cases, the greatest focus is placed on topics such as integration with ERP systems, big data, the cloud and safety. An initial basic step, however, is to make the machines IoT-ready using intelligent components. Laying this foundation opens up new opportunities to create added-value using process-specific information and develop new services for end users. (más…)

Transportation to the volcano

Goldhofer Windblade Transporter in operation in Guatemala

The route up to the windy heights of Viento Blanco Wind Farm is ten kilometers long and leads past an active volcano. It follows a narrow winding mountain road lined with trees and rock overhangs and gradients of up to 18 percent uphill and 13 percent downhill. Seven Vestas V 112 wind turbines are being installed at the wind farm. The rotor blades were transported over a distance of 80 kilometers from the Guatemalan port of Puerto Quetzal to the Viento Blanco site by the DACO HEAVY LIFT DE CENTROAMERICA haulage company using an FTV 300 blade transport device from the house of Goldhofer.
