Optimal processes thanks to innovative test equipment

Rehm is expanding the machine park at the Technology Centre with new solder paste and coating inspection systems

Optimal processes thanks to innovative test equipment

Helmut Öttl, Head of Process Development (Rehm) and Sebastian Glitsch, Product Manager (ANS)

The processing of a circuit board directly influences product quality. Above all, the reliability of the production processes is of great importance. In order to be able to more closely inspect the quality directly after the printing or painting process, two new inspection systems of the TROI series from Pemtron are now in use at the Rehm Technology Centre in Blaubeuren. In Germany, the equipment of the Korean manufacturer is distributed by ANS answer elektronik, which already looks back on a long-term collaboration with Rehm Thermal Systems.

„Our aim is not only to provide high-quality equipment for the inspecting and testing of electronic assemblies, but also to support our customers during process improvement. An impeccable paste print during soldering or a precise application of lacquer in the case of conformal coating is the basis for all further process steps, especially with regard to the increasing miniaturisation of components. The new solder paste and conformal coating inspection systems of the TROI series optimally complement our machine park and ensure the best possible analysis results“, explains Helmut Öttl, Head of Process Development/Application at Rehm.

The 3D SPI system has a patent for the joint and/or separate use of 2D and 3D image captures. This ensures maximum accuracy at high speed. It is outstanding that the systems, in contrast to those of other manufacturers, start with the measurement at zero. An ordinary 3D solder paste inspection system generates a wire mesh model to display the paste application. Pemtron, on the other hand, has developed a patented, advanced „colour mapping algorithm“ that generates a graphical „live colour image“ of the paste job. The 3D projection is based on Moire technology, takes place from two sides and determines the entire height of the paste without shadowing.

The conformal coating inspection system also has UV as well as RGB illumination. The coating is assessed by means of a good-bad comparison. Areas that are not inspected can be easily removed. A unique characteristic is the automatic layer thickness measurement in this system. The lacquer application can be tested at different positions on the printed circuit board using a height sensor.

„The user can simultaneously apply the systems as a kind of microscope, recognising, for example, whether too much, too little or no material has been applied, as well as whether bridges, a deformed application or a material mislocation are present. Programming is also very simple and can be performed very quickly in both systems. Pseudo errors are reduced to an absolute minimum and only faultless assemblies are processed further“, says Hans-Jürgen Lütter, Managing Director of ANS answer elektronik. Comprehensive SPC software rounds off the systems, which enable inspection at the highest level and ensure a much better technical statement and quality assessment.

As a specialist in the field of thermal system solutions for the electronics and photovoltaics industries, Rehm is a technology and innovation leader in the modern and economical production of electronic modules. As a globally operating manufacturer of reflow soldering systems with convection, condensation or vacuum, drying and coating systems, functional test systems, equipment for the metallisation of solar cells as well as numerous customer-specific special systems, we are represented in all relevant growth markets and, as a partner with more than 25 years of industry experience, we implement innovative manufacturing solutions that set standards.

The „GEORG“ machine cuts machining times at Doosan Skoda Power by 50 percent

Integrated measuring systems dramatically reduce set-up and idle times.

The "GEORG" machine cuts machining times at Doosan Skoda Power by 50 percent

The new GEORG ultraturn MC machining center in the Pilsen works of Doosan Škoda Power.

On February 28, Doosan Skoda Power officially inaugurated the new ultraturn MC horizontal machining center supplied by GEORG at its Pilsen works in the Czech Republic. Doosan Skoda Power will use the new machine primarily for machining turbine rotors of up to 140 tons weight. This machining center is the third of its kind in the world to combine turning, drilling, milling, grinding and measuring of extremely large parts in one unit.

The new machine is designed to handle workpieces with diameters of up to 3,500 mm and lengths of up to 12,000 mm. It is the third ultraturn MC unit in operation worldwide. Siemens has been using a similar machine in Berlin since 2016 and another one, in operation in Russia, machines gas compressors.

In the past, the Pilsen works used to machine the turbine rotors in three steps – requiring three separate machines: first, all the rotors“ bearing journals were turned, then the fir-tree blade slots were milled and, finally, the balancing holes and the coupling holes were drilled. In contrast, the new machine, which everyone at Doosan Skoda Power simply calls „GEORG“, performs all these three process steps in one sequence, i.e. the work pieces do not have to be re-clamped or transferred in any way. What is more, the machining centers of the ultraturn MC series are the first of their kind in the world designed to measure extra large workpieces with highest precision directly in the machine.

450 hours of machining time saved

According to Jaroslav Milsimer, Director of turbine manufacturing at Doosan Skoda Power, the new machine has substantially strengthened the market position of the Pilsen works: „In the first place, ordering the new machine from GEORG was an investment in quality. Besides that, we are also saving a lot of machining time, namely 30 percent during turning and 50 percent during drilling and milling. The overall machining time for regular rotors has thus decreased from about 1,000 down to 550 hours. Thanks to the new machining center, we are now the internationally leading manufacturer of large turbine rotors.“

Jan Ebener, Head of Sales machine tool division at GEORG, explains why the customer decided to invest in an ultraturn MC machine: „No one else in the world combines the processes of milling, turning, drilling and grinding for parts of truly gigantic dimensions as smartly within one unit as we do. Apart from that, we are the only ones to integrate a high-precision measurement system for such enormous workpieces in the same machine.“

For universal use

Doosan Skoda Power intends to use the new machining center mainly for the manufacture of turbine rotors. Nevertheless, the machine has been designed for universal use. Milsimer sees new markets opening up for his company: „The new facility enables us to also produce rotors for generators, rolls for the paper industry, large-diameter drive shafts and even crankshafts.“

Dr. Wieland H. Klein, Managing Director of GEORG“s machine tool division, takes pride in the fact that a medium-sized business from the German Siegerland region has supplied a machine that will secure the future of Doosan Skoda Power“s production site in Pilsen: „The works will be able to react flexibly to changing conditions and remain competitive in the future because the GEORG machine can be easily adapted to changing requirements or even completely new ones. This will require nothing but minor modifications. New machining tools or new steady rests can be added without a hitch. Shortly, our customer will use the machine also for grinding.

Signal conditioner VTS-Box – for efficient measurement

Easily connected to a potentiometer for a teachable 0…10 V voltage signal.

Signal conditioner VTS-Box - for efficient measurement

Signal conditioner VTS-Box

The VTS-Box by WayCon Positionsmesstechnik is a signal conditioner, specially developed for sensors, that use a potentiometer as sensor element. The VTS-Box increases the measurement efficiency because it allows to teach the measurement range, which improves the sensor’s resolution. Another feature is the possibility to set a switching point. A typical application is the use in combination with a linear potentiometer, like for example the monitoring of cylinders in automated production processes.

The electronics inside the VTS-Box digitizes the measured cursor voltage of the potentiometer. This digital information is first processed and then transferred back into an analogue output signal, e.g. 0 to 10 V. As a result of the digitalization the measurement range can be teached and a switching point can be set. By teaching the sensor, the measurement range is reduced which leads to an improved resolution. One, or two teach limits may be set, with a reduction of the measurement range of up to 50% of the original full scale. The reduced, teached measurement range can be placed anywhere within the original full scale. The switching point can be placed anywhere within the measurement range and is independent of a teaching of the measurement range. Therefore, the switching point can also lie outside of a teached range.

Another advantage of a sensor that can be teached is the possibility to use it in different applications, because the measurement range can be adapted accordingly. There is no need to buy a new sensor every time a different range is required.

The configuration of a position sensor is easily done by using the LED button, that is integrated in the VTS-Box. The light signal of the LED indicates the menu point, that is active at the moment and gives feedback to the user, if for example the teaching process was successful.

Tube forming and automatic bending for hydraulics

transfluid also presents flexible tube machining solutions with process networking possibilities at the Hanover trade fair

Tube forming and automatic bending for hydraulics

transfluid develops effective and flexible bending and forming solutions for the production of tubes (Source: transfluid)

The increasingly powerful digital connection for tube machining processes is a tailored driver of technical progress within the industry. For hydraulics in particular, solutions are required, which ensure safe tube machining, as well as automated processes where required.

transfluid at the Hanover trade fair: Hall 20 / Stand B14
Powerful automation is even possible with very low unit quantities, for example with the technical machining of hydraulic connection elements. As such, transfluid – with its axial forming machines of type REB and tool-independent rolling forming with systems of type SRM – offers the solution for hose connections or DKOL connections directly on the tube, for example. These enable sharp-edged contours for sealing elements and optimum surfaces. The production of flanges between 20° and 90° with short clamping lengths can be realised with transfluid forming machines of type UMR – for optimum sealing surfaces and in a single process

Digitally connected with design and measuring systems
„In the future, greater flexibility will be required for even better processes. I think for example of the online connection between design and our bending software t project. And also of systems that measure both at the building and the finished tube. Such a system must of course be simple to use. That is sure to deliver greater bending freedom“; Stefanie Flaeper, managing director of transfluid, outlines the demands and further developments.

More effective bending -42 mm and more
This was the objective of the engineers at transfluid, when they developed their mandrel bending machine of type t bend DB 40220-3A-CNC. With this machine, it is possible to bend thick and thin-walled tubes with diameters in particular from 40 mm and up to 220 mm. The stable design ensures a long service life and simple, rapid tool changes enable diverse applications and improved efficiency.

Collision-free right/left bending
The right/left-bending machine t bend DB 642 CNC R/L VE with rotating head delivers a strong performance when producing extremely demanding geometries, even when structural obstacles are present. With this servo-electrically driven concept for tube diameters up to 42 mm, each bending head has two tool levels as standard. Process assurance is provided by the complete visualisation of production processes on the freely programmable CNC touch panel control.

Mobile and high-performing in application on site
transfluid offers flexibility together with simple and effective technology for bending directly on site in the building, with its latest generation of the mobile bending machine t bend MB 642. With it, hydraulic lines can be laid at the installation site. As additional equipment, you can also chose from the internal and external deburrer, a saw, an assembly device for all conventional connection systems (flanging and cutting ring fittings), as well as metal circular saws.
The experts in tube processing machines will be presenting their diverse solutions for tubes at the Hanover trade fair 2017, in Hall 20 at Stand B14.

Colfax Fluid Handling to exhibit pump drive solutions for greater energy efficiency and reliability

Colfax Fluid Handling to exhibit pump drive solutions for greater energy efficiency and reliability

ALLWEILER centrifugal pump NTWH from the ALLHEAT® series with IN-1000 condition monitoring.

(Radolfzell – 3/21/2017) True to the motto „Boost your savings even more“, Colfax Fluid Handling will exhibit speed-controlled pumps in combination with highly efficient drive technologies and the IN-1000 condition monitoring system at Hanover Fair (Hall 15, Booth G43.09). These solutions make it easy for customers to fulfill complex requirements for system safety, coupled with low operating costs for many Allweiler® products. Colfax Fluid Handling is a business unit of Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX).

Even today, the pumps used in many systems are operated outside of their optimal operating ranges. This not only shortens the service life of the pumps, but also costs the operating company more money every year as energy costs rise. In particular, systems with dynamic operating conditions require a means of pump control that is tailored to the needs of the consumers.

This is where pump manufacturer Allweiler comes into the picture, with a thorough, on-site examination of the system and individualized consultation. It can then deliver a drive package, consisting of a highly efficient synchronized reluctance motor (IE4) and pressure-dependent speed control, that is specifically adapted to their requirements. Power consumption, which is tied to pump speed, will then mirror the required pump performance, avoid overload conditions during fluctuations, and significantly improve overall efficiency. Combined with continuous and fully automatic monitoring of pressure, temperature, leaks, and vibration from the IN-1000 condition monitoring system, all other requirements for system safety can also be achieved. The resulting savings in service and energy costs pay for the cost of the systems in a short period of time and usually contribute to a higher operating profit within one year.

„With our individually dimensioned drive packages, we are specifically targeting those customers who are interested in savings from intelligent controllers, which go beyond the benefits of energy-efficient motors alone,“ according to Allweiler Sales Manager Gunter Connert.

Colfax Corporation – Colfax Corporation is a diversified global manufacturing and engineering company that provides gas- and fluid-handling and fabrication technology products and services to commercial and governmental customers around the world under the Howden, Colfax Fluid Handling and ESAB brands. Colfax believes that its brands are among the most highly recognized in each of the markets that it serves.

Rehm Thermal Systems will be presenting Protecto, its highly selective conformal coating system at ElectrontechEXPO in Moscow.

The use of protective lacquers can significantly improve the quality and durability of electronic products. Protecto protects sensitive assemblies from damage caused by corrosion or other aggressive environmental influences, such as moisture, chemicals, dust or vibration. The coating system allows even complex application processes to be completed in a single process step. With up to four nozzles available, the coating options are extremely flexible. Protecto is also impressive as a production line concept, consisting of a dispenser and drying system.

Rehm will also introduce the newly-developed VarioFlex curtain nozzle at the trade show which has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of high-speed and precision applications.

Visit us on Stand B419. Our trade fair team is looking forward to productive discussions with you.

Capacitive sensors KS - highly accurate even under difficult measurement circumstances

Capacitive sensors KS

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik offers an excellent solution for measurement tasks, when high-resolution sensors are required to measure on challenging targets in difficult environments: The capacitive sensor series KS. As the target’s material and surface have no influence on the measurement, the sensors are ideal for thickness, distance, or position determination. A typical application is the quality control of precision mechanics.

Another big advantage of capacitive sensors is that they are capable to measure independent of the target’s temperature. Manufacturing tolerances of hot work pieces can be checked and even controlling the abrasion of brake discs under load is possible. The sensors are suitable for a temperature range of -50 up to +200°C. They even work in high vacuum, or in a radioactive environment. Other typical applications for capacitive sensors is the use in squeezers, motors, or climatic chambers.

The KS capacitive sensors are available with measurement ranges from 0.05 mm, up to maximum 10.0 mm. The dynamic resolution is 0.01 %.

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik also offers customised solutions. For example, the sensor head can be adapted to the target or to the measurement conditions. It is also possible to adjust the output signal of the evaluation electronics, so that the implementation into the customer’s existing system is easy.
