Straightness measurement integrated into the production process

Lager gauge operating in real time assures 100 percent inspection in a fully automatic process. At the TUBE 2020 trade show, sema is going to unveil its new STRAIGHTNESS CHECK X-LINE gauge for inline laser-optical measurement of the straightness of bars and tubes. The new system enables 100 percent inspection without slowing the production cycle. Thanks to its modular design it can be custom-configured to meet an extraordinarily wide range of requirements and applications. STRAIGHTNESS CHECK X-LINE measures the straightness deviation in mm/m over the complete length of the product.…

Lasers measure the complete geometry of tube ends

In-line laser measurement captures the contour of the entire cross section as well as the form of tube ends At Tube 2020 in Düsseldorf, LAP is premiering the new TUBE END CHECK measuring system for capturing the geometry of tube ends. Using sensors mounted on a robot arm, it measures the entire geometry of each tube end in-line and in time with production, making it possible to check each individual tube instead of doing spot checks. TUBE END CHECK is a modular system that can be configured to meet the…

Process observation using sight glass devices

Process observation using sight glass devices Sight glass devices allow detailed observation of processes without requiring complex and often expensive sensor systems. In this article, we explain some common types of sight glasses, their advantages and disadvantages, as well as some important criteria for design and selection. Central component of a sight glass device is a chemically and physically highly resistant glass, in most cases tempered borosilicate glass. If the operating temperature is above the nominally allowable 280 °C, a mica disc can be used to improve the resiliency of…

Stability Testing and Forced Degradation Stress Tests – Proactive Risk Management

Whereas the durability of many consumables have a strong tendency to decrease, stability is and remains a crucial factor for pharmaceuticals. Whereas the durability of many consumables, have a strong tendency to decrease, stability is and remains a crucial factor for pharmaceuticals. That is why the identification and elimination of factors, which put long-term stability at risk, is central during development – and an important requirement concerning the product”s quality. Stability studies are a fundamental part of the development of a biopharmaceutical. Proteins are sensitive to environmental factors: Changes in…

Clean soldering systems with pyrolysis technology

Rehm”s efficient new residue management system increases availability and lengthens maintenance cycles As with many other thermal processes, the soldering of electronic assemblies creates solder fumes, aerosols and solid particles (residues) that need to be removed from the process cycle. With the VisionXP+, Rehm Thermal Systems has established an effective residue management system for reflow convection soldering. The continuing development of this in collaboration with customers and experience gained from over 2000 installed systems demonstrate that thermal pyrolysis is a reliable method for cleaning the process gas and reducing maintenance…
