What’s new on the B2B Market?

Refine my search:
Recently, Electricfor has completed the manufacture of two complete sets of  charge stations with electric heating elements for a leading company in the smart charging sector for electric vehicles. The design proposed by the client has been validated by our engineering department (usually Electricfor designs its own charging stations).

Precisely, and thanks to Electricfor's long experience in the  renewable energy sector, it has been possible to carry out this project whose main objective is to test the electric charger with an electric charge station in a laboratory.

WHAT IS A CHARGING STATION?
A charging station is a unit incorporating an  internal alignment of shielded electrical elements with a  built-in fan to air them and remove the internal heat produced inside.

This charging station is powered by 180 kW and the heating elements inside can work under a voltage of 1,000Vdc.

It is therefore a very interesting project that shows, once again, Electricfor's commitment to  renewable energy, and with the boom in the production and launch of new electric cars.

For further information about this project and the equipment that is part of these charging stations, you can  consult with Electricfor's sales department.

Ultrasonic sensors make smart transport systems safe

Date: 28 April 2019 10:00 PM

Mayser, the specialist for safety technology, equips AGILOX automated guided vehicles with cutting-edge ultrasonic sensor technology to create a unique selling proposition with regard to safety and efficiency.

A new generation of AGVs from the Austrian company AGILOX Services GmbH is revolutionising logistics: The Intelligent Guided Vehicle (IGV) AGILOX is an agile, autonomous plug & play transport system that has achieved international success with new concepts for spatial navigation and swarm intelligence. Such high-tech transport systems create tremendous advantages in logistics, because they save space and reduce personnel costs. Reliable prevention of collisions between people and objects, however, requires cutting-edge, certified sensor technologies.

Little space for advanced technology

An especially challenging task in this development was to protect the blind zone of the IGV AGILOX from the fork arms in the phase immediately prior to entering the pallet. Since the installation space for sensors in this area is very small, It was difficult to find suitable sensors. In the end, the Austrian sales partner Urmet Dialog pointed AGILOX Services toward the USi® ultrasonic sensors from Mayser GmbH & Co. KG. Domiciled in Ulm and Lindenberg, the company manufactures products and system solutions for safety technology, foam technology and moulded components at six locations in Europe, Asia and the USA.

Complex echo process ensures reliable object detection

Mayser developed its USi® ultrasonic sensors especially for non-touch monitoring of three-dimensional spaces. A complex process consisting of an echo propagation time measurement and an echo amplitude measurement allows both distance measurements and non-touch object detection by the sensor. The USi® detects objects made of diverse materials and is insensitive to contamination, extraneous sound, air flows and moisture. It also features very compact, freely positionable transducers that can be positioned apart from the electronic system for increased versatility of installation – even in very tight spaces. A special new software routine provides for added safety by suppressing mutual interference if two independent transport systems meet each other.

High safety standards

Since the areas of application for the IGV AGILOX also include work areas where people move about, the USi® Safety with a special dual channel system for personnel safety was added during the course of the cooperation. AGILOX Services therefore received a technology that was even more innovative and more complex than the original requirement. Equipped with USi® and USi® Safety at the end of the integration process, the Intelligent Guided Vehicle from AGILOX Services can now operate without interruptions, which allows maximum efficiency. In addition, the IGV AGILOX is the only automated transport system on the market that is fully protected according to ISO 13849-1 Category 3 PL d – a unique selling proposition with long-term benefits for AGILOX Services.

“The use of USi® Safety in very small installation spaces has allowed us to make the AGILOX altogether more safe, while keeping everything very smart.”
Josef Baumann-Rott, Co-founder AGILOX Services GmbH

Reliable quality control for the casting industry

Date: 01 April 2019 10:00 PM

Location: Düsseldorf, Germany

Creaform to exhibit at GIFA 2019, Hall 13, Booth B35
 
 
Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany, April 02, 2019 - Creaform, a world leader in automated and portable 3D metrology solutions, will be showcasing portable 3D scanners to measure the shape and geometry of castings at GIFA 2019 (Hall 13, Booth B35), which will take place from June 23 to 25, 2019 in
Düsseldorf, Germany.
 
Creaform’s portable 3D scanners enable quality control teams to perform inspections during the design or production process. The scanners help to avoid unnecessary, repetitive construction steps and ensure that castings perfectly match CAD references. For example, before machining, raw castings must be checked to see if machining is possible. This way, teams can determine if there is enough material on the casting or remove extra material, if necessary. After machining, the dimensional accuracy of the final castings must be checked to see if they correspond to the CAD. Ideally, 3D scanning systems are used for these tasks.
 
The HandySCAN 3D and the MetraSCAN 3D—both developed by Creaform—quickly and accurately capture the dimensions of every imaginable shape, even under the harshest production environments.
 
The HandySCAN 3D is a metrology-grade handheld portable 3D laser scanner. It is the fastest on the market and features the highest measurement rate and accuracy available –all while remaining very simple to use. Its self-positioning capabilities and portability provide unmatched freedom of movement. It is the perfect solution when confined areas need to be reached or smaller parts ranging from 0.1 to 4 m in size have to be measured, regardless of their complexity, material, or color. The HandySCAN 3D provides consistent and repeatable results across all work conditions or environments, enabling you to reduce turnaround times and increase profitability.
 
The MetraSCAN 3D is the most complete 3D scanning solution for metrology-grade measurements and inspections. Truly portable and insensitive to changes found in shop-floor environments (e.g. vibrations, part displacements, setups and CMM instability), it significantly increases the reliability, speed and versatility of 3D measurement processes. It also outperforms scanners that are mounted on traditional portable CMMs. The MetraSCAN 3D is the best solution for geometrical and freeform surface inspections on parts ranging from 0.2 to 10 m in size, regardless of their type of material, color, or reflectivity. Paired with the C-Track optical tracker that enables dynamic referencing, automatic alignment and continuous monitoring of parameters, it provides the most accurate measurements in the lab and on the shop floor. Offering optional probing capabilities with the HandyPROBE Next, users can harness the power of both 3D scanning and portable optical CMMs for a streamlined inspection process.
 
Creaform scanners are universally applicable, allow for very fast and simple data acquisition as well as very accurate measurements and quality control even under the most difficult conditions directly on production lines. The recorded data is exported as STL models so that a CAD comparison with a reference part can be made directly after measurement. As a result, the main causes of casting quality issues can be quickly identified and addressed, thereby avoiding costly bottlenecks during large-series production runs and major product recalls.
