New cleaning solutions for altered requirements

Coating, adhesive bonding, sealing, painting – these are just some manufacturing operations calling for profoundly clean, and sometimes activated, part surfaces. It is with these requirements in mind that Ecoclean has developed a set of new cleaning solutions. One of them combines wet chemical and low-pressure plasma cleaning in a single machine. Another innovation consists Read more about New cleaning solutions for altered requirements[…]

The vast world of additive manufacturing and new approaches for use in investment casting

Who would have thought 20 years ago that it is possible to print components? The possibilities of additive production continue to grow and pose new challenges for BLANK regarding the investment casting process. "It is important to keep up with the times and test out innovations on the market," says the head of the Mould Read more about The vast world of additive manufacturing and new approaches for use in investment casting[…]

Additive manufacturing with liquid materials

The use of additive manufacturing processes is increasing within industrial applications, as they bring some significant customer benefits compared to conventional processes. Additive manufacturing is based upon the layered structure of a component. The production time therefore depends on the volume to be applied to the component. The geometric shape of the individual layers has Read more about Additive manufacturing with liquid materials[…]

Additively manufactured 3D spray head for forging plants wins design award in the category “Industry”

A small machine component winning a design award is probably a first in the history of the German Design Award and certainly worth noting. The component for which plant and mechanical engineering company SMS group (www.sms-group.com) has received the German Design Award 2019 in the category “Industry” is a spray head used to cool dies Read more about Additively manufactured 3D spray head for forging plants wins design award in the category “Industry”[…]

Under pressure

Workpieces up to approx. 50cm are usually mechanically and manually clamped with three- or four-jaw chucks, or automatically by pneumatic or hydraulic. If, however, the workpieces to be machined are larger, then planar disks are used. They also hold much larger parts safely on site with jaw boxes and tensioning spindles. As a user, you Read more about Under pressure[…]
