Advantages and benefits of OPC UA in the plastics industry

For years now, the world has been talking about ?Industry 4.0?. The exchange of data in production plays an important role in making the introduction of Industry 4.0 a success. The open communication protocol OPC Unified Architecture, or OPC UA, is increasingly gaining popularity as a way of promoting data sharing. But what advantages and benefits does using OPC UA offer the plastics industry, for example? In the plastics industry, the OPC UA machine communication standard helps to optimise processes from production to service while minimising the loss of time, resources and products (rejects) ...

Servo couplings for bridging larger distances without an intermediate bearing support

As well as servo bellow couplings as standard and miniature couplings and couplings for fitting in tight spaces or with high torques, JAKOB also manufactures servo couplings for long wheelbases of up to 6 m. These distance couplings, also referred to as prop shafts or intermediate axes, are used to bridge large shaft distances without intermediate bearings. Highly-dynamic distance couplings are needed everywhere in machine and plant construction. They are used primarily in connection with jack screw gears, linear guides, palletting and packaging systems. The main design feature of the distance ...

At the end of 2017 for example, the firs ...


Electric cars: Optimal temperature with Combicore

The optimum operating temperature of a component determines its efficiency and service life. For example, the range of electric cars drops rapidly in colder temperatures, sometimes by up to 50 percent. There are also problems with charging the batteries. On the other hand, if it is too hot, batteries age faster. Combicore casting cores efficiently keep sensitive components at temperature. The channels cast with Combicore safely conduct water or chemical coolants through the component to where it needs to do its job. If the coolant is very close to the individual battery cell, optimum heat tran ...


Combicore cores revolutionize die casting and other casting processes

Undercuts are hardly possible in high pressure die casting. New technologies require new cooling concepts and a consequent lightweight construction. In high pressure die casting ducts for cooling or oil are traditionally realized by sliders or drilling afterwards. However, such cavities are bound to straight axes. Sand cores that are known from other casting processes are not applicable due to the high load. With the innovative and highly stable Combicore solution, casting cores can also be applied in high pressure die casting for the first time. Even with a high casting pressure level above 1 ...

Short and good

The coupling series KP with 4-corrugated bellows and two radial clamping hubs, is a version with shorter overall length in the JAKOB metal bellows coupling range. This makes it particularly suitable for applications with minimal shaft spacing and limited installation conditions. In addition, the very high torsional rigidity values ??and the easy-to-install clamping hub design are worth mentioning. A low moment of inertia and good values ??for the permissible shaft misalignments and restoring forces complete the positive picture. The multi-layer, made of certified stainless steel, metal bellows ...


Economically shot blasting of castings

The surface treatment of castings has a decisive influence on the quality of the final products. At the fair GIFA which takes place in D Special features bring decisive advantages to the operator. The brackets of the steel mill tumble belt are designed to be particularly wear-resistant. The change intervals extend significantly. The ventilation of the blasting chamber has been designed in a special manner which ensures that the workpieces leave it dust-free immediately after blasting. In this way, the cycle time can be shortened. A longer air outlet is avoided after the blasting process. In ad ...

It''s the surface that counts!

Optimized PVD grades from ROMIRA provide a premium alternative to electroplating. A metallic surface is a sought-after property for various plastic parts, not only as a decorative feature, but also regarding their functional use. Today, these surfaces are still largely produced using galvanic processes. Due to environmental problems, especially when chromium (VI) compounds are used, metal deposition from the gas phase, known as the physical vapor deposition (PVD) process, is gaining in importance. The process as a whole is also emission-free if using UV-curable coatings as a top layer. With th ...
