Spin Welder

Dukane, St. Charles, IL, has introduced the next generation of spin welders for welding plastic assemblies with circular weld joints. The ServoWeldTM Plus with Melt-Match® technology is an all-electric press system using two servomotors to provide precise control and accuracy. It features a technologically advanced, touch-enabled human machine interface with an intuitive menu structure to control and monitor the welding process. The spin axis has an orientation resolution of 0.1 degree, while the vertical axis has a positioning resolution of 0.01 mm (0.0004 in.) and a force capacity of 2000 N (450 lb).

Stent Measuring Machine

Werth, Old Saybrook, CT, has announced a new machine for measuring life-saving stents. The StentCheck® is the company’s newest multisensor coordinate measuring machine. To meet the precision requirements of stent measurement, the combined optical-tactile coordinate measuring machine is equipped with special illumination for transmitted light and a high-precision rotary/tilt axis with runout of less than 0. 5 μm. The ma - chine can measure any stent, regardless of the strut thickness in multiple areas, the radii of rounded end areas, angle of strut structure, stent length, material wall thickness, eyelets, and end flute angles. Software algorithms prevent false measurements, such as those caused by severely bent struts.

Hot Runner Systems

Hot runner systems are available from Synventive, Peabody, MA, for sequential molding of large parts. The SVG+ is designed so that no cooling lines or plates are required. The systems are easy to set up and troubleshoot. Monitoring and diagnostic tools are provided outside of the molding machine, resulting in less downtime, less scrap, and increased reliability. The hot runner systems are equipped with a new modular actuator design and patent pending SynCool3 technology, which provides cooling of the actuators without the need for separate cooling lines.

Swiss Turning Center

A high-performance turning center from Tsugami/Rem Sales, Windsor, CT, performs continuous live cutting using a servo-driven B axis. Designed for complex small parts, the Tsugami SS207-5AX Swiss type lathe with B axis combines Swiss style machining with laser cutting on one machine. The live tools mounted on the B axis (three front, three rear) machine in coordination with the C axis, enabling the machine to cut precise angles and sculpted contours. The swiveling B axis transforms this Swiss type lathe into a multitasking turning center that can drill, tap, and end mill any angle.

Laser Cleaning System

Fonon Corp., Orlando, FL, has incorporated Flexion™ technology into its CleanTech™ product line. Marketed under the Laser Photonics™ brand, CleanTech laser products are used for surface preparation and surface cleaning. The newly released systems offer a nonabrasive cleaning process that is safe and eco-friendly. The Flexion technology enables the system to remove surface materials in areas that are typically difficult to reach. A motion control stage operates in both x and y axes, allowing it to move in various directions and clean nested parts under the path of the trajectory beam path.
