MACHINE ELEMENTS 01 The hydraulic connection technology of agricultural machines is continuously in contact with corrosive fertilizer and humidity while on the fields 02 In the hydraulic system of the single grain sower Maestro, the tube connections from Voss Fluid GmbH are built-in 03 Thomas Prüll, Research and Development Systems Engineering at Horsch Maschinen GmbH, and Werner Thorwarth, Key Account Manager of Mobile Applications at Voss Fluid GmbH, examine the hydraulics of a sower 01 04 The Voss coat surface provides sustainable corrosion protection 02 03 04 – sealing – passivation – zinc-nickel – steel resistance is not only attributable to the coating. The result: Even under real conditions, the Voss tube connections remain functional and are also an economic alternative to stainless steel. High production and application expertise The reason behind the high corrosion protection of the couplings lies in the sustainable surface technology and longstanding experience in the production and application of tube connections. The coat construction of Voss coat is at first glance comparable to customary zincnickel coatings. It consists of a zinc-nickel base coat, which is passivated and sealed. A central distinctive feature is the design of the coating processes, which is continually optimized by the manufacturers from Germany: A prerequisite is the electroplating, in which only tube couplings are coated. This is how the connection expert specialized in the efficient and careful reproducibility of each of its approximately 16,000 articles - more than one hundred million parts are subjected to electroplating annually. Thanks to the process parameters specially defined for each product, Voss achieves first-class results with regard to even coat distribution, optics, and friction coefficients. Training courses for the leak-free assembly of the connection technology additionally guarantee Horsch a process-safe installation into the hydraulic system. Complaints relating to couplings are a thing of the past after making the switch to Voss Fluid. www.voss.de About Company name: Voss fluid GmbH Headquarters: Wipperfürth, Germany Turnover: € 111 Million Employees: 400 Products: tube connections for stationary and mobile hydraulics, cutting ring couplings, tube forming systems and flange couplings 42 MDA Technologies 3/2015

Product News Configure pneumatic systems free of errors with Festo Design Tool 3D The Festo Design 3D minimises the error potential when designing and ordering pneumatic drives, wherein it saves many work steps. The configuration software prepares the way for the design of standard cylinder assemblies with accessories in all common CAD formats. After selection, the tool places the accessory parts on the cylinder automatically based on the user specifications. Individual downloads are no longer required. The designer only has to decide if he wants a pre-mounted complete cylinder group or would like it in a complete package (Pre-Pack). Finally the software generates a position in the shopping cart of the online shop, which is then delivered in an individual package. The Festo Design Tool 3D is available in 20 countries under: www.festo.com/FDT-3D. www.festo.com PEM self-clinching fasteners for specially hard sheets The PEM self-clinching fasteners from KVT Fastening are designed for processing in especially hard sheets. The nuts SH and bolts HFLH made of hardened, alloy steel are suitable for long-lasting installation in high-strength materials. There they can be processed in the immediate vicinity of the sheet edge and in narrow spaces. They are used throughout the industry. In the automobile industry the fasteners are suitable for fixing components to the chassis, stiffener plates and frames. Normal presses can be used for pressing process so that it results in corresponding automation. www.kvt-fastening.de
