Stauff introduces 2 new weld fittings series to further expand its product range With the series FI-SNR and FI-ASV, Stauff expands the product range of Stauff Connect weld fittings. The FI-SNR series, consists of 24° weld fittings with cone and O-ring. This allows users to adapt tubes through welding with a standard fitting body with a standard 24° inner cone, whereby the nominal size of the tube to be connected is smaller than that of the fitting body – therefore the reduction. This model series is available in the sizes 8/6L (light series) up to 30/25S (heavy series). The FI-ASV series, is a straight weld fitting for tubes. It is supplied as a set consisting of weld cone, fitting body for welding and a conventional cap nut. This fitting connects two tubes with the same outer diameters, whereby welding is required at both ends. These fittings are available from the heavy series in the sizes 10S to 38S. With these two new model series, Stauff expands the standard catalogue range of weld fittings in the extensive Stauff Connect range, which previously already featured 4 different versions: straight bulkhead weld fittings, straight weld fittings, angled weld fittings and 24° weld cones with O-ring. Now, users can choose from 6 model series. www.stauff.com Precise tube bending with controlled wall thinning for aviation sector There is often demand for high and ultra-high strength materials for tubes that are more lightweight and that can be subjected to greater loading. The new, specially designed t-bend mandrel bending machine from Transfluid is capable of bending titanium, aluminium and stainless steel tubes with a diameter of up to 60 mm and a wall thickness of 0.5-1.5 mm. The other feature that makes it special is the option to control the wall thinning. The wall thickness has to meet the specifications after the bending too; the flow through the workpiece and its stability have to be preserved. That is why Transfluid have developed the push bending option for the process. Another benefit is the complete synchronization of all the moving axes in different sequences due to use of servo motors, which makes new sequential control possible. All the sequences on this innovative mandrel bending machine are easy to program. The operator can allocate them to the product and retrieve them as and when needed. In addition to the actual process the sequencing will also take into account the material, radii and manufacturing processes of the product. www.transfluid.net EtherCAT terminals for mains monitoring, process control and power monitoring Beckhoff has added 4 new EtherCAT I/O terminals to the existing product range, which enable the monitoring of supply networks, process control tasks and make even high-end power monitoring possible. The new EL3443 3-phase EtherCAT terminal is universally suitable for daily as well as de-manding process control tasks. Compared to the previous model, it offers numerous new functions such as mains monitoring functionality, precise determination of zero voltage crossing and harmonics analysis. The EL3423 3-phase terminal has been designed for energy management in monitoring and maintenance applications. This power measurement terminal is intended for cost-sensitive energy management solutions, especially in IoT applications. The parameters that can be measured are energy, power and a mains quality factor. These are recorded with an update interval that is adjustable from 10 s to 1 h. The mains monitoring terminal for voltage, frequency and phase enables optimum monitoring of the power supply to a machine, which is particularly advantageous for systems that are sensitive to voltage variations. Single-phase operation as a voltage, frequency and phase monitor is also possible. www.beckhoff.com
