Shock absorber Discs

Stamped parts are used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive industry and are used, for example, in shock absorbers. The main processing task is deburring and rounding of the edges. Due to the thickness of the components of less than 0.5 mm, some challenges arise during surface finishing. As the workpieces are often very thin, there is a risk that they get bent. This must be avoided during the finishing process. In addition, in conventional processes the process times are very long. It is also important that there is no mixing of parts of different batches during processing. The ...

High-quality insulation for highest energy efficiency

In modern house technology, going without a hot water tank is unthinkable. With state-of-the-art devices, contractors and heating modernisers can provide hot water with great energy efficiency. Thanks to high-quality insulation, hot water tanks impress with very low heat loss. To further reduce this heat loss, Daikin Europe from Oostende in Belgium recently achieved insulation of its hot water tanks with the help of polyurethane and a Hennecke production plant, which was perfectly adapted to the high requirements of the customer. New mould In modern house technology, going without ...


Post-consumer PE Film Recycling: also in South Africa now!

The first large-scale plant for the recycling of heavily contaminated PE film waste has now started running in Germiston South, near Johannesburg. Delivered by HERBOLD MECKESHEIM, the plant can process up to 8,000 tons per year of film, used big bags and similar waste. The waste coming in bales are pre-sorted, shredded and foreign bodies are separated by means of a pre-washing unit in which also a first washing takes place. Afterwards, further contaminations are dissolved in a wet granulator under intensive friction; a subsequent friction washer separates the dirty water from the product. A hy ...
