Enclosure modification capability is highlighted

Modification services will be highlighted by Hammond, with examples of application-specific plastic and die-cast enclosures that demonstrate its in-house capability. This capability has recently

received a further £100k+ investment in additional CNC machines, production engineering and control systems. CNC milling, drilling, punching, engraving and printing are available, as are EMC coatings, front panel overlays, custom colours for moulded enclosures and a variety of paint finishes for metal ones. PDF drawings or CAD files for all products are available on the company website, allowing customers easily to specify the modifications required.

Compact solutions to increase productivity

Also on show will be a selection

from 5,000 different standard plastic, metal, extruded and die-cast aluminium enclosures, the recently launched 1551USB, a miniature enclosure optimised for USB interconnect, as well as the 1553W, IP67- sealed handheld enclosure.

Test probes and fixtures serve from telecomms to healthcare

Test probes and test fixtures from Ingun Prüfmittelbau, which specialises in high frequency (HF) technology, are for a wide range of applications, from the telecommunications industry to medical technology. The company claims to offer the

largest assortment of test probes worldwide, with 20,000 variants in more than 400 series. There are over 50 tip-styles, including spring- loaded, pneumatic, as a switching probe, HF or high-current probe, as a rotating or non-rotating probe. In addition, it claims to offer the largest spectrum of HF probes worldwide. Manual, pneumatic and vacuum-

operated test fixtures, which contact the unit under test either single-sided or double-sided,

Believing that a huge amount of flexible productivity can be derived from a small space on a shop floor, Hurco Europe reinforces this message with its VM10i vertical machining centre (VMC) and a TM6i CNC lathe at the exhibition, in support of its ‘compact production solutions’ theme. Within a footprint of nominally 1.8

by 1.8m, the VM10i offers a working volume of 660 x 406 X 508mm, which is one of the best ratios of any VMC on the market, claims the company. A 20-station swing-arm tool- changer and 24m/min rapids help to minimise non-cutting time, while a 762 x 406mm table with a maximum weight capacity of 340kg and a 11kW, 10,000RPM spindle complete the package. The TM6 slant-bed turning

are offered within the standard portfolio. They can be enhanced with individual, customised solutions. Decades of experience, from the

high level of manufacturing and design expertise produce proven products and high-performance innovation, says the company. It has extended and modernised its production area in Constance, Germany and has over 300 qualified employees.

Quartz crystals are stable for IoT applications

Quartz crystals for wireless and Internet of Things (IoT) applications are available from Jauch Quartz UK. The JXS21 -WA, JXS22 -WA and JXS32 –WA crystals are available in standard packages 2016, 2520 and 3225 and at 14 special frequencies to generate a pure and stable reference clock for many radio frequency (RF) transceivers and RF application specific integrated circuits (ASICs). Frequencies such as 24.0, 26.0,

32.0, 37.40, 38.40 or 40.0MHz are often used by RF-ASICs that support wireless standards like Bluetooth low energy, Bluetooth Smart, Zigbee, ISM (industrial, scientific and medical), LoRa, LPWAN (low power wide area network) or other standards being used in wireless applications within the world of IoT.

centre has a tiny footprint for its specification, which includes a six-inch chuck and a maximum cutting diameter of 316mm. Distance between centres is 403mm. The machine is sized for even the smallest of shops and is well-suited to bar work up to 42mm diameter. The single-piece bed casting controls cutting forces. A swarf conveyor, Renishaw tool-pre-setter and parts- catcher are included, together with a three-jaw chuck. Both machines benefit from

the company’s latest Max 5 control with 128Gbyte hard drive and 4Gbyte RAM standard. Conversational/NC programming software with controls import externally prepared programs.

Live demos showcase maintenance-free management systems

Cost-effective, lightweight and maintenance-free bearings and cable management systems for a variety of engineering applications will be on display at igus. Visitors will see several live demonstrations, including the drylin W curved rail system and Compact Rotation Module. The second stand highlight will

be the new Compact Rotation Module (CRM), an easy-to-install rotary system (pictured) that guides different types of media – power, signals, data, fibre-optic, pneumatic

and oil – through rotational movements of up to 360° degrees in tight spaces.

Sub-contractor sheds light on build service

Providing sub-contract manufacturing for over 35 years, producing cable assemblies (including high voltage cables), looms, PCB assemblies, box, panel and cabinet build, Industrial Electronic Wiring (IEW) has developed long term relationships with customers including renowned blue chip companies. It works with a broad range of clients from OEM to R&D and is a Tier 1 supplier to the medical sector producing electro- mechanical assemblies. What is less well known is an

expansion of its box, panel and cabinet build to diversify and offer a higher level of assembly. All work is undertaken in the UK at the modern, Lean site at Kembrey Park in Swindon, which offers an accessible, on-hand service. The flexible factory site allows reconfiguration of both staff and production space to enable a variety of projects.

There is the capability to provide

metalwork and art work and the company can assemble from kits or free issue if required. It also offers a 3D printer for R&D prototypes, to reduce the cost of tooling. The company offers mid volume,

batch ordering and prototyping, together with Kanban and MRP. Inspection is undertaken in a dedicated inspection department using automatic inspection equipment. The company is certified to IPC 610

and 620 training standards and to ISO 9001:2008.
