Contact soldering with or without a vacuum

The Nexus vacuum soldering system from Rehm Thermal Systems is perfectly suited to numerous applications The Nexus soldering system guarantees the best results with a reflow soldering process using contact heat under vacuum. This enables the Nexus to meet the highest requirements in the field of advanced packaging and power electronics. The contact soldering system under vacuum is also best suited for void-free soldering of different components (e.g. IGBT) on DBC substrates. The substances are usually joined from different raw materials under vacuum at temperatures of up to 450 °C…

Rotary solutions for castings and stampings save time, space and costs

New rotary finishing vibrators can be seamlessly integrated into interlinked manufacturing When it comes to surface finishing of die-castings and stampings, the optimized CB rotary vibrators from Walther Trowal combine the technical features of linear continuous flow systems with the advantages of rotary vibrators. The CB machines are ideal for processing of work pieces, which merely require a light deburring operation. For example, in case of die-castings containing only small metal flashes or stampings demanding a slight edge deburring. Since they allow feeding the work pieces individually into the machines…

The evolution of metal 3D printing: IDAM projects reports halfway results on industrialization of Additive Manufacturing with real-time IoT

GKN Powder Metallurgy validating use of DP 600 material on newly acquired EOS M300-4 quad-laser system installed at GKN PM’s Bonn facility in May In March 2019, a consortium of 12 partners from across the additive manufacturing, automotive, research and industrial sectors launched the Industrialization and Digitalization of Additive Manufacturing (IDAM) project. At its core, the project addresses the limitations of laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) AM, including the lack of automation and high associated costs, that hinder the technology’s adoption for industrial, serial production in industries such as automotive.…

UVC light is a proven method for the reliable disinfection of surfaces

Heraeus Noblelight developed two UV systems to kill viruses Heraeus Noblelight has developed two new weapons against viruses on surfaces, the UV Disinfection Chamber and the UV Handheld Disinfection System from the Soluva Pro Program. Common to both is the use of highly effective UVC light and easy handling for the reliable disinfection of surfaces and objects. They are ideal for use in nursing homes, hospitals, public transport, offices and waiting rooms. As a result of the current Corona Pandemic, disinfection has become an even more important part of everyday…

Perfect surface finishes for 3D printed components

Mass finishing creates smoothness and luster in one single step Walther Trowal developed the “AM post process machines”, model range AM, especially for refining the surface of components produced with additive manufacturing. The experience of the first customers using these machines shows that the mass finishing technology creates surface finishes in one single step, which meet the highest demands. Most 3D printed components are produced by placing material layers on top of each other, creating a “staircasing” effect on their surface with, generally, a very high initial surface roughness. For…

Microline descaling at Musashi Europe

Descaling of forgings SGGT Hydraulik is currently installing a new Microline Descaling MD1500 D descaling system in the Bockenau/Germany plant of Musashi Europe GmbH for descaling of large-format, rotationally symmetrical forgings for cars and trucks. The system works with a maximum water quantity of 1.5 l per part and thus achieves a temperature drop of only 10 °C even with small parts. In combination with innovative conveyor and control technology, which takes over the entire process handling including the press quiver feeding, it descales up to 1,200 parts per hour.…
