High Speed High Volume Production Innovation – It’s time for a rethink.

SK Wiring Products Ltd is one of the World’s premier Thermocouple cable manufacturing companies; supplying the temperature measurement market globally.  Our mission is to be the primary choice supplier for the Thermocouple, RTD and specialist cable products industries.  SK’s R+D department is constantly looking for ways to break with the traditional mentality of cable makers and to bring new high speed high output machinery into our production environment; benefiting our customer base with improved delivery times and higher quality products

Low output from glass lapping machines has been an issue for a number of years, although the accepted wisdom is that there are physical limits to the speed with which you can rotate glass fibre yarns, the knowledge behind that accepted wisdom is dated.  SK decided to look at the problem using new knowledge and technology.

CrazyMill Cool Ball Z4 A Milling Cutter for perfect surface finishing in Stainless Steels & Co.

The Swiss Cutting Tool manufacturer Mikron Tool presents a new 4-flute Finishing Milling Cutter with shank integrated cooling, available in the diameter range of 1-8 mm, for milling depths of up to 5xd. This milling cutter is suitable for machining all materials up to a hardness of 54 HRC, focusing on stainless steels, titanium, heat resistant alloys based on nickel and chrome-cobalt-alloys. Hence it is not surprising that these tools are especially convincing with highest performances when working with these materials. All characteristics of the new milling tool are designed to reach highest milling performance as well as best surface quality. Primarily, this means that due to poor heat conductivity of stainless and heat resistant materials, overheating of the tool cutting edges must be avoided. Several factors are instrumental.

PROBLEMS WITH SLUDGE? ENERGY PUMPS RE-INFORCED VALVES AND DIAPHRAGMS

DON’T BUY INFERIOR PUMPS ENERGY PUMPS ARE THE SUPERIOR CHOICE

Our success in the pumping of Primary and Humus sludge is based on the fact that we approach sewage sludge as a chemical mixture, which varies greatly from site to site. Since sewage is in constant contact with the rubber parts of any Pump, these parts must cope with a combination of mechanical fatigue and chemical attack. There are different types of Valves used in Energy Diaphragm and Ram Pumps. These Valves are commonly known by our own trademark of ‘Bullfrog’ Valves. Flap Valves are also available, but are only truly reliable on aqueous solutions. We also manufacture Ball Valves, which will pass sludge provided that there are no rags, sticks, disposable razors, etc.

Avoiding the pitfalls of prioritising cost over quality

The importance of having new technologies available while at the same time keeping costs down was one of the key outcomes of a survey undertaken by Sandvik.  In recent years, since the global economy has been challenging, those responsible for sourcing stainless steel may have been tempted to try and make budget savings by purchasing cheaper materials. Inevitably this will often prove to be a false economy in the long run and could result in costly operational failure in some cases. Here Hans Boudewijn, Regional Sales Director for Sandvik, discusses the survey findings and gives his advice on the key areas to consider when purchasing stainless steel.
