• Real-time diagnostics and selectable beam parameters for comprehensive process control

“This is the first opportunity for many European manufacturers to access an industrial laser peening system for application and product development research,” said David Lahrman, VP of Business Development for LSPT. “We’re introducing a superior fatigue enhancement solution to the European market, and we’re excited to form new partnerships in pursuit of stronger, more reliable components.”

Laser shock peening (LSP) is a powerful metal improvement process that produces a 10X fatigue life enhancement over shot peening. LSP utilizes a high-energy pulsed laser to generate controlled stress waves that impart compressive residual stresses up to 12 mm beneath the material surface. Laser peening has been proven to significantly extend the service life of metal parts by providing enhanced resistance to common failure mechanisms:

• Fatigue Cracking
• Stress Corrosion Cracking
• Foreign Object Damage
• Fretting Fatigue
• Creep Deformation
• Erosion

Laser peening improves the performance and reliability of metal components, adding value to critical parts across a broad range of industries:

• Aviation and Aerospace – Engine components, turbine blades, bulkheads, wing attachments, landing gear, helicopter components
• Automotive – Axles, drive shafts, valve stems, connecting rods, pistons, impellers
• Medical – Orthopedic implants, replacement joints, spinal fixation devices
• Power Generation – Land-based turbine blades and components, nuclear containment vessels, wind turbine gears
• Manufacturing – Metal forming dies, machine tools

LSP Technologies’ newest laser peening facility will reside in the heart of the Hamburg Aviation Cluster at the ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research. The ZAL TechCenter is one of the largest and most advanced aeronautical research facilities in the world, offering an innovative research space for collaborative development of emerging technologies.

The Effects Of Misaligned Equipment

Perth, Western Australia, Jun-27-2017 —  /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/  — Nexxis are one of Australia’s leading suppliers of specialist remote visual inspection (RVI) technology and non destructive testing (NDT) equipment and they have all the answers to your equipment misalignment problems.

Industrial operations are losing huge sums of money because the centrelines of the shafts of their rotating equipment (such as pumps and motors) aren’t running on the same axis and are therefore misaligned – with some industry sources going as far as saying that shaft misalignment is to blame for up to 50% of all machine breakdowns.

And when you consider that a survey by a leading rotating equipment service company found that less than 10% of machines that were evaluated were aligned within acceptable tolerances, misalignment is clearly a widespread problem.

Here are some of the costly and damaging effects of equipment that is poorly aligned or misaligned.

Excessive vibration
Misalignment is one of the leading causes of vibration problems – and as the reliability of the machine corresponds directly with the level of vibration, excessive radial and axial vibrations will impact negatively on performance. All rotating equipment will produce a certain level of noise, but when the shafts are misaligned and the equipment vibrates excessively, noise levels will also escalate correspondingly.

Premature failure of seals and bearings
Accelerated failure of seals and other parts is costly – and even the slightest misalignment can result in excessive force and stress being put onto the bearings and seals. Replacement parts are expensive, plus there’s also the risk of damage and contamination of other components from the leaking fluid from the stressed seals and bearings.

Increased energy costs
Misalignment correlates directly to higher power consumption as the machines are less efficient and therefore draw greater amounts of energy.

Excessive heat
In the same way that variations in temperature can cause misalignment, misalignment can cause machines to overheat which results in lubrication issues as well as safety risks.

Broken shafts
Misalignment can cause the shafts to break or crack – and this can lead to unplanned downtime and production problems as well as costly equipment repair.

Higher operating costs, loss of production and increased maintenance costs
Misaligned machinery generally has a shorter service lifespan and this premature failure of capital equipment adversely affects outputs as well as negatively impacting the operation’s balance sheet. Higher maintenance costs, costly downtime, unexpected capital costs for equipment replacement, increased inventory for spare parts and even the potential for catastrophic machinery failures are all consequences of misalignment-induced mechanical failures.

Inferior quality outputs
Misaligned machinery can also result in inferior or defective products which can impact on profitability.

Implementing a careful and thorough preventative maintenance programme will go a long way towards minimising the risk – and the associated costs – of misaligned machinery. To find out how a customised solution can ensure that your operation runs at optimum efficiency, you should contact Nexxis on 08 9418 4952 or via their website, nexxis.com.au.

Laser peening is a proven method for significantly increasing the fatigue life and fatigue strength of metals. The mechanical surface enhancement process utilizes a high-energy pulsed laser beam to impart compressive residual stresses up to twenty times deeper than shot peening. The compressive stresses introduced by laser peening add strength and robustness to metal parts by improving their resistance to damage, fatigue, crack initiation and crack propagation. Benefits of the process include: extended component service life, reduced maintenance and repair costs, improved part performance, and enhanced resistance to failure. The process has been employed for years by major aerospace OEMs including GE Aviation and Rolls Royce.

LSP Technologies’ Procudo® 200 Laser Peening System is the only commercially available laser designed exclusively for laser peening. It employs a diode-pumped, pulsed YLF laser that produces a flat-top beam for smooth energy distribution and consistent processing. The flexible system offers selectable laser parameters, along with custom controls and diagnostics developed from LSPT’s 20 years of laser peening experience. Engineered for high-volume production processing, the Procudo® Laser Peening System can deliver 20 pulses per second, making it the fastest laser peening system ever built.

Improve Your Palletising To Save Money And Increase Business Efficiencies

Willetton WA, Australia, Apr-20-2017 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — AccuPak are Australia’s leading supplier of packing, filling, bagging and palletising machinery and equipment, and they have the answers on how you can increase your productivity, reduce your personnel requirements and minimise the risk of injury. Accupak helps business owners save money and improve efficiencies with automated palletising systems. The advantages of automatic palletising are numerous, as detailed below.

Any industrial and warehousing operation that is still relying on manual palletising is likely to be compromising their productivity, quality and business efficiencies.

Manual palletising is no match for modern automated equipment in terms of speed, precision, productivity, safety, quality and outputs and in today’s highly competitive environment, businesses need to take every opportunity to improve.

Palletising is the final step in an assembly line whereby the products (such as boxes, bags, cases, cartons, bottles, sacks etc) are loaded onto pallets. Semi-automatic and automatic palletising systems have undergone major changes in recent years, with advances in robotics technology driving significant improvements in terms of pallet pattern flexibility, tooling flexibility, cycle times as well as the presentation of the stacked pallets.

In basic terms, a robotic palletiser utilises various end-of-arm-tools which alleviate the need for manual stacking of bags, cartons or drums onto a pallet, thereby increasing productivity and profitability while allowing greater flexibility and versatility.

Although automated palletising equipment requires a capital outlay, many businesses are surprised at just how quickly they get a return on their investment. It doesn’t take long before the companies’ bottom-lines reflect the improvements in productivity and efficiencies that are made possible by the new equipment – and customer satisfaction levels are also a lot higher.

Let’s take a closer look at how palletising equipment will benefit a business:

Speed of operation. Humans can’t compete with automated or even semi-automated palletising equipment when it comes to speed. The equipment works faster than any person possibly can, plus it can operate continuously.

Quality control. Because human error is eliminated, a robotic palletiser ensures that quality standards are consistent and deliveries/outputs are always correctly counted and packed. The overall consistency of the loading and unloading processes improves, thereby reducing costly stoppages required to fix errors and inconsistencies as well as reducing the likelihood (and therefore, the cost) of returns or damaged goods.

Reduce labour costs. Eliminating the human element or substantially reducing the level of human intervention leads to substantially lower labour costs and greater efficiencies. The likelihood of error and contamination from human handling is minimised plus there are the obvious productivity and profitability benefits as a result of lower labour costs. Another reason why automated palletisers can improve business efficiencies is that personnel who are no longer required on the manual packing line can be redeployed to other areas within the organisation and used to greater effect.

Greater flexibility. Versatile palletising equipment makes it easy to reconfigure systems to handle different shapes, case sizes, pallet stacking patterns, layers of product and weights as well as handle multiple production lines. This means faster turnaround times and productivity improvements.

Improved working conditions. An automated palletising system reduces the need for workers to do heavy lifting and repetitive work, and minimises the likelihood of OH&S issues. This means a safer working environment with reduced likelihood of workplace injuries and costly workers compensation claims.

Improved data handling and reporting. Computerized controls and a seamless interface with other business software systems allow improved data gathering, real-time reporting and analysis as well as reducing invoicing errors and enabling a more streamlined and secure information chain.

More efficient use of floorspace. A robotic palletiser generally occupies less space than a manual operation which means businesses can use their square meterage more cost-effectively. In some instances, operations are even able to reduce the size of their factory or warehouse, which results in substantial cost savings.

Find out more by calling the AccuPak professionals on 1300 793 476 or visit www.accupak.com.au to learn more about their extensive range of palletising equipment and solutions.

Warranty on Trucks and Trolleys Extended to 10 years by The Workplace Depot

The Workplace Depot is delighted to announce that their range of Fetra trucks and trolleys will now be under warranty for 10 years; previously the warranty was for five years.

Many workplaces rely heavily on trucks and trolleys to move goods around and they can take a heavy pounding from regular, hefty usage. So it may come as a surprise that a company could guarantee the reliability of such an item for an extended period.

Ken Miller, Director of the Workplace Depot explained, “The reason we can give a 10 year warranty is because the equipment is now manufactured at highly efficient production facilities using some of the most advanced precision machinery. The Fetra range of trucks and trolleys are also powder-coated and undergo vigorous shot blasting pre-treatment.”

The new manufacturing process extends the product life as well as keeping the finish in tip-top condition for much longer.

There may be cheaper alternatives in the truck and trolley ranges provided by other suppliers, but buying an inferior item can be a false economy. This type of transport equipment has notoriously high levels of wear and tear, so lower quality equipment may only last a few years and therefore need to be replaced. This wastes both time and money versus the alternative of purchasing a reliable product that is guaranteed for 10 years.

Steve Miller, The Workplace Depot’s Managing Director commented on the quality of the Fetra products, “We are proud of the fact that if any of the Fetra products fail within 10 years, we will replace the whole truck or trolley, not just replace a part. We will of course do this free of charge. Our range is built to last and nothing says this more than a 10 year warranty.”

Laundry 365 Warewashers Have A Basque Connection

Laundry 365 is pleased to have formed a good relationship with the 5th largest domestic appliance manufacturer in Europe namely Fagor and sells a complete range of their products. However Laundry 365 has now moved into the complete dishwashing area as well as the laundry business. The company has vast experience in the clothes washing industry and its expertise in the use and servicing of all the laundry based machines, from Commercial Laundry Equipment Parts to full service packages. The similarity in the ware washing business machines to the laundry washers and other machines is such that laundry 365 has an excellent base with which to advise, supply and service any of the warewashers that are at the top of the game. They also have all the links to the suppliers and also to the user trade as they are very often the same as those that require laundries and washing services.

The Fagor AD20C Glass Washer is a great machine for a good standard operation that requires a steady supply of clean glasses ready for instant return to service. Fagor is based in the Basque country and is a company that has steadily grown over the years and provides excellent quality machines for the catering trade. It regularly competes quite successfully with all the major domestic appliance companies at a competitive price and with a high quality product. The Fagor AD20C Glass Washer will wash some 320 glasses per hour and uses a microprocessor control to operate the unit in 3 major programmes working from a remove all problems programme for heavily soiled glasses to a quick programme for typical low level contamination. The quality of the cleaning is excellent and the glasses will come out dry and clean and ready to use.

Laundry 365 notes that the Fagor AD20C Glass Washer is ideal for the standard kitchen, bar or hostelry as it provides a large quantity of glasses from a relatively small machine. The unit fits under the standard work counter so that it is out of the way and yet is easily accessible and being fitted at low level it leaves the upper area open for work space or open counter usage. There is an automatic detergent dispenser which will provide the right quantity of detergent on a consistent basis.

It is noted that Laundry 365 are pleased with the versatility of the Fagor AD20C Glass Washer as it will operate successfully in the full range of catering industries. It works ideally in the bar or pub trade where the unit will sit quite safely under the bar counter to provide a good quick access to recycled glasses on a regular basis. It can be loaded by bar staff in between serving and fits with the continual usage and recycling system that this usage requires. On the other hand it will also fit quite happily in the restaurant or large kitchen where glasses are returned from the eating area sorted from the crockery and washed ready for return service. This is a good workhorse supplied by a great supplier in Laundry 365.

Capital Online Steams Ahead For Safe Cleaning

Capital Online supply some excellent steam cleaners, which are ideal for safe and very efficient steam cleaning in a range of businesses and has worked well for many years to achieve the best in the business. Capital Online are pleased to be able to offer 2 particular models from Osprey the manufacturers of steam cleaners. The first is the Osprey Robby 3000 which is a good workhorse model and the second is the Osprey Provap Eco Vap which can either be purchased or rented on contract. The cost of the second steam cleaner is such that it costs in excess of £2,700 and Capital Online realises there is probably a more limited regular usage for this model but it is still ideal for an interval standard clean and so the contact allows usage for the period required. If it is on a continuous contract this is often more useful to the cleaning contractor as the large financial outlay at the start of the work could put an unnecessary strain on finances. The rental system is obviously a good system for the contract cleaner who has a large amount of regular work which can be dealt with on a normal basis and financed out of regular income.

Capital Online is a great fan of good steam cleaners as this system of cleaning offers a great deal in the effectiveness of the cleaning and also the speed of the operation and it is also very environmentally friendly. The steam is general called dry when there is less than 5 to 6% water content in the steam. This allows good safe cleaning at a temperature of 180 degrees C which kills the germs and removes all the dirt and grime from almost any surface quickly efficiently and without any damage. The amount of water used if very low and there are no detergents used at any one time which makes the whole operation very environmentally friendly. Care does have to be taken on where a commercial steam cleaner is used as obviously the high temperatures can damage delicate materials but they are ideal for deep cleaning in kitchens and catering establishments where it removes dirt and grime and fatty deposits and leaves a sparkling surface, it works well on the stainless steel surfaces found in these places.

The steam cleaner is excellent at removing grease and this makes it particularly useful in an industrial application. Capital Online (http://www.capitalonline.biz) particularly like the use of gum removal abilities. This is always one of the more difficult items to remove and one of the most obnoxious items leaving a residue that is sticky and extremely difficult to remove. Provided there is no chance of damaging the material on which the gum has been deposited then the gum can be removed simply and quickly and permanently. The advantages of having a cleaning system which uses little water and no detergents or chemicals will become more important as the rules get tougher and Capital Online is pleased to be at the forefront of reducing the problems.

Line Generators for Machine Vision Offer Improved Performance

Coherent Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced a new range of diode-laser based line generators which deliver enhanced flexibility, unique output optimization capabilities, and extended lifetimes. This series of new line generators, called the StingRay, will enable the construction of faster and more accurate machine vision systems that utilize 3D triangulation. The   StingRay series mates a diode laser with high performance electronics and precision, refractive optics for collimation and line generation covering the widest available range of fan angles. They also incorporate optional diffractive elements for creating complex output patterns.  StingRay models are available with output powers as high as 200 mW and at key wavelengths throughout the 450 nm to 1550 nm spectral range, including the popular 450 nm, 520 nm, 635 nm, and 660 nm lines.

StingRay lasers are the first to feature an industry leading, line intensity non-uniformity down to ±5% in a standard product. This high uniformity reduces the need for image post-processing, and translates directly into increased measurement speed and dimensional accuracy. StingRay lasers are also unique in offering external user focusable optics, which allow the laser line to be precisely optimized for the exact distance over which it is projected.  Additionally, the StingRay’s optomechanical design permits “dynamic line balancing,” enabling simple correction of any intensity bias in configurations where the laser must be used at off axis illumination angles. To further enhance usability, Stingray lasers also include an internal “health monitor” that indicates when a diode module is approaching end of life, thus allowing for planned replacement, and avoiding production downtime due to an unexpected failure.

New Analyzing Tool for sourcing foundries

To meet the requirements of industrial buyers, Tech2select developed a new analyzing tool for casting parts – sourcing of European and Asian supplier already possible.

Sourcing for new casting suppliers can be very time consuming, because casting is not casting. It depends on a catalogue of technical details, if a supplier fits or not. Especially normal searching machines offer a lot of information, but it lacks in a technical exact searching and matching tool.

The industry portal Tech2select launches a special analyzing tool for finding the exact foundry now. It is based on all the needed technical criterias, which buyers have to keep in mind: material, processes, machines, batches and quality measure methods. So the sourcing time for a casting part can be shortened.

At the moment, there are 300 foundries from Europe and Asia online, which can be sorted that way. They are offering various casting methods – from steel castings, grey castings to gravity die casting. So industry buyers find technical fitting castings very easy and time efficient.

Static Control Ionizer Specifically Designed To Ionize Nitrogen Gas Flow In Pure Nitrogen Environments

ION Systems, an ITW Company, the leader in static charge neutralization and control products for high tech industries, announces the In-line Ultra Clean Nitrogen Ionizer, Model 4214, the first in-line ionizer specifically designed to ionize a nitrogen gas flow in ultra clean medical, semiconductor, or other high purity processes where static charge generation is an issue.

The Model 4214 In-line Ultra Clean Nitrogen Ionizer was developed to provide a solution to the problem of materials readily charging to 30-40 kV when handled in pure nitrogen environments. Many processes in the medical, semiconductor, and electronics industries are carried out in five 9’s pure nitrogen environments (99.999% nitrogen). Nitrogen ensures a clean, non-oxidizing environment that enables critical processes to be carried out without contamination issues. The dry nitrogen environment, however, encourages static charge generation, which can cause particles contamination through electrostatic attraction, or damage from ESD events. The Model 4214 ionizer, by providing a stream of ionized nitrogen, can effectively remove static charge from products to minimize particle attraction and ESD events. Nitrogen cannot be ionized with standard ionization equipment designed for use in ambient air or CDA environments. The Model 4214 provides the user with the first small format ionizer that ionizes the actual nitrogen molecules instead of the trace impurity gases.

In addition to ionizing pure nitrogen, the Model 4214 is also the world’s first corona ionizer that meets Extended ISO Class 1 cleanliness. Using formulas in the ISO 14644-1 standard, ION Systems has extrapolated the allowable particles down to 0.01 micron (10 nm) in size. These smaller particles which are not covered by ISO 14644-1 can be especially harmful to semiconductor devices with 32 nm or below technology nodes.
