Metal Casting Technologies : June 2007
57 METAL Casting Technologies June 2007 PRODUCTS Controller for DC Electric Fastening Stanley Assembly Technologies new Kappa controller is designed to optimize DC electric threaded fastening for error proofing. The Kappa controller measures actual torque and compares it to quality limits, whereas other methods like current control can only estimate torque. The Kappa controller is also compatible with the full range of QPM DC electric tools, from 0.6 to 2000 Nm and higher. A single DC electric tool can be set up to assemble joints of different target torque levels --- unlike air tools, which require separate tools for each torque level. The Kappa system includes Adaptive Tightening Control (ATC), which automatically adjusts for different joint designs and part variations during each tightening cycle. ATC dynamically manages speed and power to the motor in order to control fastening. Other methods, such as current control, require special software and setup to account for different joint types. Stanley Assembly Technologies provides solutions to the global assembly market, including the motor vehicle industry. W: www.StanleyAssembly.com Inductive proximity sensors The Comus Group has a new range of Inductive and Capacative proximity sensors. Inductive (capable of detecting any ferrous metal) and Capacative (capable of detecting any material) sensors, are used in many applications, notably production lines, elevators, escalators, and many other situations where detection of movement, or proximity is required whilst having a sensor containing no moving parts. The sensors are robustly constructed in Chrome plated Brass housings, or plastic ABS, and sealed to IP67 requirements, with many options available, including rectangular versions, and cylindrical threaded versions ranging from M8 to M30 thread size. Custom cable lengths/type are available, as well as straight or right angle connector options.

These portable, rugged spectrometers are purpose-built to move FT-IR spectroscopy out of the conventional analytical laboratory and closer to the source of the sample. Consisting of three systems, the MLp, the ML and the MLx, the Mobility series has been designed to survive in rugged environments and be operated with little to no training by the user. Simplicity of use makes it an ideal real-time process monitoring tool featuring an intuitive operating system and easy-to-use sample interface, the rugged and compact design of the spectrometers provide users with actionable information so that decisions can be made on-the-spot. The Mobility Series FT-IR spectrometers incorporate two new diamond based sampling systems, one utilizing the principle of internal reflection and the other features a completely new type of transmission cell. Between these two diamond-based systems, a broad range of liquids, solids, oils, gels and pastes can be easily analyzed. The portability of these analyzers significantly reduces the need to send samples to a remote laboratory, alleviating the problems associated with sample throughput and minimizing bottlenecks. By enabling analytical information to be obtained in real-time, these innovative spectrometers allow for instant results. T: +1 203 312 1106 E: firstname.lastname@example.org W: www.a2technologies.net
