Great success for Euromold 2017 – Only 10 minutes from the international Airport, Munich Airport, Germany

September 26, 2017. The organizers of Euromold 2017 have succeeded in organizing Euromold 2017 only 10 minutes from the International Airport Munich, Germany in the Munich Airport Business Park, Hallbergmoos. Euromold 2017 is placed in a directly connected, but separate exhibition area parallel to the international aerospace exhibition, Airtec 2017. It takes place from October 24th until 26th, 2017.

Due to an unanimous decision of the Munich Airport municipal council Hallbergmoos, on September 5th, 2017, they voted for Euromold and Airtec 2017 to be organized at Munich Airport, Hallbergmoos, Germany. The Deputy Mayor of Hallbergmoos declared at the exhibition board meetings of both events, on September 7th, personally, this fact and pointed out the importance of such high-tech-events, like Euromold and Airtec for this region.

This result is for Euromold outstanding and an important step, because now Euromold is organized at one of the biggest and most important international Airports in the world. In this way, Euromold is easily and quickly reachable, by car and by railway. In addition, the region, Munich Airport, Hallbergmoos, is an increasing and very innovative high-tech location with the establishment of international high-tech companies which fit ideally to Euromold. The regions around the international Airport, Bavaria and the entire Southern part of Germany are numerously represented with potential exhibitors and customers. Also for these reasons, Euromold fits ideally to the Munich Airport area. It has always been the ultimate target to organize Euromold again as close as possible to an international airport, like the international Airport Munich, Germany is. The reasons for this are evident:

Exhibitors and visitors should have most comfortable, time-saving and efficient logistics as possible at Euromold 2017. The high international participation of Euromold which is of major importance for the success of an international exhibition will be even more increased being so close to the International Airport Munich, Germany. Visitors from world-wide can reach Euromold 2017 in a comfortable and fast way. Visitors from Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Eastern Europe can also reach Euromold 2017 by car in an easy and fast way. Efficient parking space is offered near the entrance of the exhibition area. A shuttle service from the subway station Airport and Hallbergmoos is available. Hotels in all categories for special conditions nearby are offered.

This year, Euromold is internationally new relaunched. Euromold develops into an important attraction for the modern product development. There are exhibitors represented from whole of Europe and world-wide. The relaunch of Euromold is based on the original concept „from design over prototyping up to series production, from the idea to the final product“. Under the moto „Shaping tomorrow“, this year companies from the process chain „from design to the final product“ exhibit. The organizers of Euromold 2017 work with the Association of industrial designers together. There will be a joint stand with member companies. At Euromold 2017 industrial designers, companies involved in CAD/CAM, additive manufacturing / 3D-printing, moldmaking- and tooling and suppliers to the mold- and toolmaking industry exhibit. Invited are visitors, decision makers, developers, project engineers, buyers and others from all important industry areas, like automotive, electro technical, electronics, machine tools, medical and dental technology, jewelry, lifestyle, packaging and others. A recently formed exhibition board consists of companies in the industrial design, CAD/CAM, additive manufacturing / 3D printing, mold making and tooling and from the product development.

Rigorously inspect electronics components

Rehm relies on the new YXLON Cheetah μHD with 3D computer tomography (CT) for components analysis

Rigorously inspect electronics components

Helmut Öttl, Head of Process Development (Rehm) and Thorsten Rother, Market Manager (YXLON)

If you think that CT-X-ray examinations are used only in the medical field, you’re very much mistaken. These X-ray inspection systems were introduced into the electronics and semiconductor industry long ago. X-ray analysis of circuit boards has now become one of the most important methods in the manufacturing process for quality assurance of soldering, to visually check for pores and voids. The next step is analysis using 3D methods such as laminography and computer tomography. Customers are now able to closely examine their boards in the Technology Center at Rehm Thermal Systems, using the new Y. Cheetah μHD CT X-ray inspection system from YXLON.

Voids have a huge effect on the quality of the solder joint, so automotive manufacturers are increasingly setting acceptance limits on components. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have the necessary technical equipment. That is why Rehm Technology Center offers customers the opportunity to thoroughly inspect boards and jointly perfect their processes. A wide range of SMD and inspection equipment can be used under professional supervision for fault management. Solder joints can be examined in detail using the new YXLON Cheetah μHD X-ray inspection system. The system enables high-resolution, non-destructive, real-time microfocus X-ray inspection of components and sub-assemblies, circuit boards, electronic and mechanical modules, sensors, MEMS and MOEMS as well as electromechanical components and connectors. It combines several innovative developments, such as fine-focus tube technology, a high-power target, a latest generation long-life finely calibrated flat detector and a manipulator with vibration damping, as well as eHDR inspection, micro CT and micro-laminography.

„Among other things, the radiographs help to evaluate the soldering quality and the void rates. Afterwards, we can make a decision with the customer as to whether any further vacuum processes are necessary and make fine adjustments to these processes. The system also performs the entire spectrum of state-of-the-art X-ray inspections, including laminography and computer tomography. This offers a wide range of manual and automatic inspection opportunities, such as distance measurements, layer assembly, BGA solder joint analysis as well as close inspections of the solder that don’t interfere with structures of components, conductor tracks, substrates and much more. The results obtained form the basis for successfully improving the processes. We particularly value the simplicity, flexibility and above all the accuracy of the system“, emphasises Helmut Öttl, Head of Process Development/Application at Rehm.

Using laminography, it is possible to generate precise layer images of larger or double-sided printed circuit boards as well as of multilayer semiconductor components. In particular, however, industrial computer tomography offers three-dimensional insights into test parts and thus facilitates the analysis of internal structures, dimensional measurements or set-point comparisons to CAD data. In addition to this, computer tomography also provides valuable information for the production process and enables detailed insights into the finest structures and smallest components. „The YXLON Cheetah microfocus X-ray inspection system offers exactly what customers require: precision, flexibility, ease of use and speed. This is the only way today’s modern manufacturing companies can satisfy the growing complexity of electrical and electronic test parts“, emphasises Thorsten Rother, YXLON’s Market Manager.

The successful cooperation between Rehm and YXLON is the ideal basis for further joint projects with regard to vacuum technology, fault analysis and test methods.

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.

Tube machining: Smaller quantities, lots of automation

transfluid develops a highly flexible production cell for complex pipe variants

Tube machining: Smaller quantities, lots of automation

Automation now pays off even with small quantities. (Source: transfluid)

This nearly seems possible: automatically producing tubes in small quantities. Prompted by increasing demand, the trend meets expectations for economy and efficiency to allow the sort of tube production that transfluid has now made possible as part of a current project. „The most important thing for automation in small quantities is process reliability and the ability to read out data precisely. They key word is Industry 4.0,“ explains Stefanie Flaeper, Managing Director at transfluid. „In addition, there is employee-independent production. And with automated processing, the process has a strong influence on subsequent procedures, such as assembly of component groups. Here, automation offers a good deal of planning certainty.“

Tube surfaces are retained and stay flexible
In the transfluid project, the customer wanted a precisely coordinated automation system – one for processing chromium VI free coated tubes, as well as tubes with powder-coated surfaces, which are very sensitive. The workpieces can be relatively short (150mm) or relatively long (up to 3,000mm), and loading was to be automatic. Moreover, cutting ring assembly was required, along with mounting of flanges, production of hose connections.

Precisely coordinated process
Altogether, it was very demanding, but transfluid has met the challenge with an automation system in which, after the separation process, the workpiece can be loaded into a slide conveyor for automatic loading. For powder-coated tubes, separate loading is provided, because here only small quantities are loaded, so as to prevent surface damage. An integrated transfluid axial tube forming machine creates geometries or hose connections. And on a second forming machine, the flanges necessary for some components can be loaded and attached. Then the tubes are correctly positioned in a tube bending machine, bent and it ensues a controlled unloading. A robot does the entire handling from separation to the individual machines.

Monitored, documented assembly
For tubes used in hydraulic systems, the processing procedure first involves a bending cell that makes the right/left bend on a fully electrical machine. Then the robot positions the tube for a die ring assembly. The nut and die ring are automatically loaded there and monitored assembly occurs. The pressure and stroke are monitored and properly documented by the system for tracing.
The finished components are then placed into various compartments in movable trolleys. They can be taken immediately for further processing. Trolley exchange occurs outside the safety area, so that the system continues to produce during unloading. This cell“s overall configuration is enormously efficient and versatile. It shows that automated component production no longer has to involve large quantities. Effective tube solutions of this kind will surely be part of the conversation at transfluid“s booth G95 in hall 15 at EMO Hanover.

Heinrich GEORG Maschinenfabrik: New slitting line for Eisen + Stahl Service Center

High efficiency through short non-productive times

Heinrich GEORG Maschinenfabrik: New slitting line for Eisen + Stahl Service Center

GEORG slitting lines excel in terms of winding accuracy; photo shows a plant, delivered in the past

GEORG has received an order to manufacture and supply a new slitting line to the German steel service center E + S Eisen + Stahl Service GmbH. With the new line, the Mannheim-based company will be adding the sale of slit strip out of its own facilities to its portfolio, thus taking another important step towards metal product processing in addition to trading.

Eisen + Stahl sells steel, stainless steel and aluminum sheet and plate, which the company cuts in its own facilities to the sizes demanded by its customers. To date, slit strip ordered by customers has been sourced from third parties. With the new slitting line supplied by GEORG, Eisen + Stahl will in the future be able to slit the strip at its own facilities in Mannheim. Thus the company will be able to cater to call-off orders much more flexibly. Additionally, the new line will reduce the company“s dependency on third-party supplies.

The new line will be designed to handle up to 1,650 mm wide and up to 5 mm thick steel strip, or up to 2 mm thick strip in stainless grades. It will be able to produce up to 30 slit coils from one mother coil at speeds of up to 400 m/min. The new line will be designed to optionally pay the strip off from above or below. Thus slitting can be performed with the inside or outside coil surface up, whatever may be requested by the customer.

Thanks to the high degree of automation, the GEORG slitting line will have much shorter non-productive times than traditional lines. For example, removal of the slit coils from the recoiler and placement of the coils on the payoff reel will take place synchronically. Any knife changes that may be necessary will also be performed in the process.

The scrap chopper features GEORG“s „shimless tooling“ technology, which dispenses with the necessity to insert shims while the knives are being reground.

The automatic, patented CNC-based system for arranging the separators saves setup times. While in the past, the separator discs used to be installed manually, this system now automatically sets the separator discs precisely at the correct positions, without any manual intervention. With four separator shafts in place, the new machine achieves optimally wound coils.

Against the backdrop of high energy costs, GEORG will equip the machine with highly energy-efficient motors and drives. Certain plant components, such as the brake rollers, will be operated in generator mode, allowing them to feed excessive energy into a link.

Axel Sturm, Head of Sales of GEORG“s Finishing Lines division, emphasizes that the lines made by GEORG are of interest not only for the big strip producers: „The order for E + S demonstrates that investing in quality-equipment from GEORG also pays for small and medium-size businesses. Last but not least the high degree of automation and proven longevity make our machines extremely attractive for steel producers and steel service centers as well.“

Dominik Naber, Managing Director of E + S, explains why he decided to buy a GEORG slitting line: „GEORG equipment is known for excellent precision, short non-productive times and long lifetimes. Of course, also costs mattered. But considering its overall duration of service, the new machine also provided major advantages in terms of total cost of ownership.“

The new line is expected to start producing at the E + S facilities in Mannheim in September 2018.

Advanced tube processing machines that deliver the latest tube solutions are extremely complex. To grasp all of their technological and value-added features and functions while also providing optimal support, even the most experienced service professionals need to attend training workshops regularly. For transfluid, a high-tech machine manufacturer whose products are in high demand worldwide, this combination of regular training workshops and practical knowledge building is a fundamental principle. That is why the company recently invited the employees of its sales and service partners in the U.S. – Advanced Fabricating Machinery and Modern Machinery – to its German headquarters in North Rhine-Westphalia.
It was the first time that employees of Modern Machinery visited the company headquarters in Germany. Modern Machinery has been looking after transfluid customers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan since 2016. For many years, Advanced Fabricating Machinery has been providing on-site support for our American transfluid customers, covering primarily the East Coast region all the way down to Georgia, including Tennessee.

Technological focus in the interest of the customers
„We are very pleased to welcome our American partners here for the service training workshops and, naturally, would like to thank them for attending. For outstanding service in the U.S., it is very important to us to share information in person and to transfer knowledge. This helps all of us to advance together. Our customers, particularly in the United States, will benefit from this. And that, of course, is our main priority,“ says Stefanie Flaeper, CEO of transfluid, in describing the visit. The intensive training workshops focused on tube bending and tube forming machines, cutting tubes or pipes cleanly without chips using t cut machines; and lastly, the options and benefits of tailor-made transfluid automated systems for tube processing that meet specific customer needs.

Comprehensive support within 24 hours
In view of the strong increase in its customer base in the U.S., the recent training workshops offered by transfluid have once again improved the services expertise of its partners. Within their respective regions, both Advanced Fabricating Machinery and Modern Machinery can now respond to support requests within 24 hours, thus ensuring immediate service for transfluid customers in the U.S.
