|Ultrasonic Sensors Fit into Tight Spaces|
The F12 series ultrasonic sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs feature automatic synchronization capability, allowing up to 10 sensors to operate in very close proximity to one another, without any potential for cross-talk. They provide an 800mm sensing range with a very small 50mm deadband, and feature a rotatable M12 quick-disconnect for easy connectivity. Indicator LEDs provide high-visibility status indication. Push-pull, 4-20mA, 0-10V outputs are available.
|High-speed Crankshaft Gage|
The Model 1300 high-speed, end-of-line crankshaft gage from Adcole Corp. (www.adcole.com) measures the ever tighter tolerances necessitated by developing greener technology engines. The gage permits horizontal axis to facilitate automatic loading and features <1 min. cycle times with sub-micron accuracy for three micron round-ness tolerances to provide QS9000 and Q1 quality verifications.
|High-performance Face Milling|
Sandvik’s CoroMill 345 is a flexible tool that provides high-performance face cutting with small depths of cut in steel and stainless steel. Equipped with double-sided inserts that provide four edges on each side, the new tool offers full cutting edge backing and insert-seat stability through shims with strategic support islands that match insert rake-faces. Suitable for a variety of operations, from roughing to mirror-finishing with wiper inserts.
|Mobile Chip Conveyor for Auger Chip Processing|
The newly designed mobile chip conveyor from Hennig, Inc. (www.hennigworldwide.com) allows shops with auger chip processing machine tools to use larger chip bins or 55 gallon drums instead of small chip cans. This unit can be rolled around the shop to assist with higher production auger fed chip loads. It utilizes standard 110 volt current and has a variable speed drive for extra efficiency. The receiving chip chute is adjustable and can be positioned for front, side, or rear discharge.
