The MultiLoc process replaces spotwelds, hole punching, screws and rivets with a metal clinching process. A quick, clean joint of most ductile materials may be obtained using MultiLocc.

Powered by a Multicyl air/oil intensifier, the fast advance stroke is followed by a smooth hydraulic action, ideal for the metal clinching operation.
There are several machine alternatives for fastening sheet metal components. Using standard clinching tools in throat depths up to 8" deep, these machines can fasten many combinations of materials together including mild steel, galvanized, pre-painted or pre-coated stock, aluminium and stainless steel.

Configured in no time

Vacuum technology specialist J. Schmalz presents the first modular system for fast and easy setup of vacuum end effectors for the packaging industry

Schmalz introduced the new modular system for vacuum end effectors (VEE) at the Interpack 2011 trade fair. It makes for fast and flexible gripper configurations for pick and place processes, for use in case packers, in carton and tray erecting machines, in top and side loading machines as well as in packaging machines with frequent format changes.
Instead of going back to rigid end effectors made in individual production, system integrators, machine and robot manufacturers now have the option to set up or reconfigure flexible end effectors: A wide selection of combinations of vacuum feed and zones, connection elements and suction pad connections is available. All elements of the modular system are available for download as CAD models on the website of the manufacturer (www.schmalz.com) to be quickly combined into the required configuration on your PC.

The VEE modular system from Schmalz permits minimum configurations with one suction pad or a size of 38x38 mm and a dead weight of only 60 g. The largest configurable vacuum end effector comes with 12 suction pads at variable distances and a maximum gripper size of 300x200 mm at a weight of 800 g. Users can select suction pads from the highly specialized offer of the manufacturer depending on their requirements: Flat suction pad SGPN for handling fragile foil and blister packaging, flat suction pad SPF for handling stable cardboard boxes, bellows suction pad SPB4 for handling filled bags or flow wrap packaging.

The VEE masters loads of up to 2000 g and process accelerations up to 10 g (100 m/ss) regardless of the type of product it is handling, which means it meets all the requirements of the fast pick and place processes typical for the packaging industry.
Gripper changeover times are kept to a minimum thanks to the standard quick-change adapter. Another feature is the hose-free vacuum distribution within the system, which reduces possible leakage and ensures greater efficiency and faster response times.
All VEE elements are made of polysulfone PSU according to FDA guidelines. They are resistant to alkaline and acidic cleaning agents and can be steam sterilized. This makes them suitable not only for the packaging industry but especially for use in the food processing industry.

Schmalz offers a 120 piece VEE starter kit that includes all components for setup of up to two end effectors, including suction pads and manual quick-change coupler with bayonet fastener.

Introducing The New Compact Nex Flow STREAM VAC Dust Collection and Fume Extraction system

The Nex Flow Stream Vac is an in line air conveyor that when hooked up to a
2 inch hose and connected to a compressed air line, it will remove up to several hundred cubic feet of air while using only a minimal amount of compressed air, taking with it welding fumes, soldering fumes, particulate from local grinding operations, smoke and particulate from almost any spot application.

A safe and improved healthy condition in the workplace improves employee morale, increases worker productivity, decreases absenteeism and even reduces insurance costs in many cases. A cleaner environment can even enhance the performance of machinery and sometimes cut
maintenance costs. However, until now there was no low cost solution to enhance the environment.

The low cost, compact and portable unit operates utilizing a minimal amount of compressed air. It comes with a magnetic stand to plug into position on any magnet accepting metal surface. Simply connect the snap on collection attachments and clamp a 2 inch hose on the opposite
side, hook up your compressed air and you are set to go. Comes complete with shut-off valve.

This compact Air Cleaning, Dust and Fume Extraction unit is designed to handle small and spot area applications. Portable, low cost with
zero maintenance!

Stroke Module KLM 300 from SCHUNK

For loading machine tools, power and precision are both required. For this type of application, SCHUNK enlarged its modular system with the stroke module KLM 300. Double-seated and robust dimensioned guiding shafts assure that the module can handle high payloads and achieves an
excellent repeat accuracy of less than 0.015 mm.

Two possible intermediate positions assure a higher flexibility to the user. In order to achieve a more compact design with minimum interfering contours, the shock absorbers and the proximity switches are already integrated into the projected area, and assure a vibration
-free motion and reliable monitoring of the end positions. In case of emergency stops, a clamping cartridge avoids an uncontrolled movement.

As a part of the modular system for automation, the module allows more than 250 standard combinations, even with sealed grippers. The module is particularly suitable for workpiece handling of up to 15 kg and can be also integrated as a Z-axis into linear gantries.

SCHUNK is a family owned operation and a global player in one. Totaling more than 60 years of experience, SCHUNK is a leading worldwide manufacturer of toolholding components, workholding systems, and automation components. With their reputation for high quality products, absolute precision, and continuous innovation, SCHUNK is a reliable partner for their customers. For more information, visit SCHUNK USA

Tests indicate that the compressed air operated Nex Floww X-streamm Air Bladee air knife system is one of the most quiet and efficient of any compressed air operated air knife available. Unlike many competitive aluminum air knife products the X-streamm Air Bladee air knife is anodizedd for longer material life in difficult factory environments. The unit is labeled Silentt because of extremely low exhaust noise levels under 70 dBA.

The Nex Floww X-streamm Air Bladee air knife is available in regular anodized aluminum and in hard anodized aluminum should there be a risk of any abrasion or rubbing with materials while in operation. In addition, stainless steel versions are available for very high temperature and highly corrosive environments.

All of Nex Floww air knife systems come with stainless steel shims not cheap plastic ones that wear out, all at no extra charge. Despite the use of filters to keep out moisture and dirt, even small amounts of debris or moisture or oil can still damage weak, flimsy plastic shims. Stainless steel shims are a standard with all Nex Floww blow off products that require them, offering long life and consistent performance.

Applications include replacing drilled pipe, rows of nozzles for all types of blow-off and even for cooling applications. Energy reduction in compressed air use can be anywhere from 50% to 90% depending on the application. Lengths are available from 22 to 544 . Units may be coupled together for longer lengths utilizing a couplingg kit in either aluminum or stainless steel.

Freelin-Wade Launches New Product: Liquiflex-POE

Coinciding with the release of the new catalog is the launch of Liquiflex-POE. This tubing is chemical resistant like polyethylene and flexible like polyurethane. Miller said, Polyethylene flexes but Liquiflex really bends. Not unlike Polyurethane, it springs right back and can be coiled or bonded into multi-tube bundles..

Liquiflex-POE is ideal for fluid handling applications in low-pressure, room temperature environments. These properties make it an excellent choice for food manufacturing and water applications. Another potential market is for use in spray bottles, particularly in applications where the tube needs to flex through a unique shape.

Freelin-Wade Company
Founded in 1980, Freelin-Wade is North Americaas largest independent manufacturer of plastic tubing and hoses for industries as diverse as pneumatics, dental and promotions. The company employs more than 100 people at its McMinnville, Oregon plant. Privately held Freelin-Wade is a subsidiary of Coilhose Pneumatics. Worry-free Freelin-Wade tubing fits and arrives on time.
