Metal Casting Technologies : September 2005
VMG Air Gun SMC Pneumatics has launched a new energy saving range in Australia designed to reduce the amount of compressed air consumed in pneumatic processes. This includes the VMG air gun incorporating the KN nozzle range. This product is designed to provide the same air collision pressure as other commercially available air guns but with greatly reduced air consumption. It provides constant operational (trigger) force irrespective of the supply pressure. The smooth flow of fluid within the patent pending design provides exceptionally low pressure losses of less than 1%. The lightweight gun is ideal for cleaning swarf, dirt, debris and other foreign material from equipment and products in manufacturing and tooling applications.

They are available in three configurations and cover torque ranges from 0.3 Nm to 12 Nm and various models are available as push to start and also with front lights. The tools have signal lights to verify correct fastening and to ensure detection of incorrectly tightened fasteners. The Tensor DL tools have ESD certification, light weight and an ergonomic design that promotes operator safety. There are two levels of the drives available for the Tensor DL. The Basic model is for stations not requiring multi-torque capability. The Advanced model is programmable for up to 10 different torque settings making it possible to use the same tool for several applications. Simple programming can be performed on the drive's control pad. More complex solutions can be programmed with the ToolsTalk DL software application through your PC.

These hot zone designs feature either ribbon elements or the new PV/T patented "BAR" heating elements and separate automatic trim zones (top, multiple side pairs, bottom, front, and back). Each zone has a thermocouple that looks at the workload and automatically trims the heat input to match thermal characteristics of the workload in that location. Under this arrangement, the bottom corners, sides, tops and ends can receive different amounts of heat input while following the ramp-soak profile. This allows for variations in thermal-mass and area-to-mass ratios of the product. These hot zones are designed to automatically deliver the right amount of heat at the top, middle, bottom, front, and back.
