Digitalization at 30,000 RPM

Najava 57Walking from booth to booth, talking to experts, touching products and seeing them in action. All of this will be possible again at EMO in Milan. The leading trade show for metalworking is offering the opportunity of an international industry event from October 4 to 9, 2021. SCHUNK will be there presenting innovative solutions for automated, flexible, and sustainable manufacturing. The highlight of process digitalization: the even more powerful iTENDO² smart toolholder.

An optimized surface finishing process increases productivity and lowers costs

Najava 57_Image_1Improved productivity, increased production capacity, better quality and lower costs. These were the requirements of a leading manufacturer of gardening tools, when the company invested in a new mass finishing system for deburring and polishing of gardening blades.

  • Automation products from Siemens



Recycling of polycarbonate

Najava 57_Image_2Polycarbonate is one of the most used thermoplastic material with application in automotive industry, electronics, household appliances, packaging and various constructions. Many of these applications have a very short life time and therefore it makes sense to recycle polycarbonate for reuse. During every recycling process we are facing the problem of deteriorating material properties in comparison with virgin material and therefore a lot of attention is focused on maintaining or even improving the properties of recycled materials. 

The use of lasers in the manufacture of battery packs for electric vehicles

Najava 57_Image_3The battery housing is an integral part of the chassis of hybrid and electric vehicles (EV). The housing itself protects the battery and the battery management system (BMS) and keeps the vehicle and its occupants safe from battery leakage, smoke and fire, especially in the event of an accident. Laser welding allows battery pack manufacturers to achieve optimal quality and productivity at a moderate cost to the splicing process.

Robotic prothesis feels the surrounding

Najava 57_Image_6Researchers at MIT used advanced and multi-disciplinary technology to develop an innovation that allows people with amputated body parts to receive feedback information and control in real time. Engineers from the Boston institute presented a new soft and stretchy artificial arm, that changes the look of traditional prosthetic limbs. 

How to enforce the warranty of new hydraulic components

Najava 57_Image_4In addition to replacing non-functional hydraulic components with new ones, the supplier will give you a warranty for defects in material and workmanship for a certain period. This is usually not the case if you buy a component at a discount from an old stock. The warranty validity when purchasing a new hydraulic component may vary, and is usually not less than three months from the date of purchase. In the next issue of the magazine we will talk about understanding the terms of the warranty and the possibility of free repairs, when the warranty period expires.
