Advantages of broad range PGN plus-P products

ZNP3E48"It doesn’t matter which robotic aided automation solution we plan to implement for our customers, we always found all what we need in the SCHUNK's PGN-plus-P portfolio, when we look for a suitable gripper. And if sometimes, there is no standard solution available, our contact person at SCHUNK helps us to develop an adapted solution," explains Thomas Imme, Project manager of mechanical production at HandlingTech Automations-Systeme GmbH from Steinenbronn.

Hot nozzle system control

NajavaZa99-1K2019 trade fair offered the presentation of hot nozzle technology, that helps toolmakers obtain increasingly better results. The hot nozzle technology was presented more than 50 years ago. This technology upgraded the injection molding process and thus contribute to better quality of products, increased production efficiency and reduced scrap and associated costs. Even today this technology represent the limit of what is possible to produce with injection molding process.

  • New two-directional sensor for differential pressure suitable for extremely low pressures
  • Bilsing Automation announces the production of next generation tools for use of carbon fibers
  • Gripping systems of the future will be smart, collaborative and fast for set up
  • How to predict tooling costs?
  • Software package VISI helps toolmakers to overcome new challenges
  • Open days in the German company Pfrontenu



Novelties from the trade fair for additive technology Formnext

ZNP3E48The trade fair for additive technologies Formnext 2019 took place at the Frankfurt fairground from 19 to 22 November. A record 740 companies from 40 countries exhibits the novelties, what represents a 7 percent increase comparing to the previous edition, while the exhibition area was 35 percent larger. Most exhibitors were from Germany, China, United Kingdom, Italy, USA and the Netherlands. A total of 285 new exhibitors show their products and services among which here company such 3M Advanced Materials, Bosch Rexroth, Covestro, Evonik, Mitsubishi, Thyssenkrupp Materials and Xerox

Basic comparison between electric and servo-hydraulic injection molding machine

NajavaZa99-2The number of purely electric injection molding machine is growing also in Europe, although the number differs from producer to producer and from country to country. For some machine producers, the market share is just over a two-digit figure, while with other this share is more than half. And where we are? The article explain the basic terms and working principles of both systems with respective advantages and drawbacks. If those are known, there will be no major problems in choosing the right machine and even the greatest sales representative cannot convince to choose the other option, which is normally more expensive.

  • 3D-printing of large parts
  • Welding in space
  • Development and manufacturing of the largest robotic grippers on the World
  • New lightweight concept in automotive seats
  • Goodyear is testing the use of intelligent tires
  • TPE for use in two-component medical devices (TPE/PC)
  • HiQ-Flow®, HiQ-Melt and HiQ-Metering function of injection machines Wittmann-Battenfeld



Troubleshooting in close circuit hydrostatic drives

ZNP3E48In the next issue of IRT3000 magazine, it will be presented how to approach troubleshooting in close circuit hydrostatic drives. This requires a lot of additional knowledge and special techniques. First of all, working principles of close circuit hydrostatic drives will be presented.

Wonder matter that pushes the technology limits

NajavaZa99-3Grafen is six times lighter and 200 times stronger than steel, 20 times harder than diamonds and 100 times better electric conductor than copper. At the same time porous, flexible, impermeable to molecules and even thinner with thickness of a single atom. Truly a wonder matter as is normally addressed by researchers and media. 


  • Junior school of lubrication
  • Novelties in the field of technical diagnostics
  • Cleaning methods in production
  • Intelligent tires in company fleets
  • Billions from Europe for researches and innovations in battery production
  • Would you make a driving license for autonomous vehicles?
