operation and programming is effected via the touch operat- ing units KUKA SmartPad or reisPAD. Another highlight of the system is the VectorMove application. In Cartesian space movement data are simply shifted by means of vec- tors. Tis application allows the removal robot to follow the ejection mechanism of the casting machine powerlessly and synchronously and take over the casting. Moreover, the cell is able to communicate with superimposed control systems, and flexible production is possible due to the communication with superimposed control systems of the cell. Increasing energy costs and higher production require-


ments bring new challenges for the production equipment. KUKA Industries met this challenge with the development of a new press series, a state-of-the-art control generation with touch display and a drive concept with servo motor. Te advantages of the product are not only the reduc-


tion of the energy consumption of the trim press by up to 60% (depending on customer and component), but also the complete revision of the control and hardware such as the hydraulic unit. Another innovation presented by KUKA at Euroguss will be the autonomous quench tank. In this quench tank thermal plates carry off the thermal energy absorbed in the tank. Tese water-water heat exchangers are directly connected to the cooling circuit of the foundry and are operated without electric connections. Te cooling water in the thermal plates has no contact to the component; filter and recirculation pumps are not required, cleaning work is considerably easier. Since no pumps or control elements are required, the quench tank is ready to immediate use. Te automatic refilling of the tank is ensured via a mechanical float valve, the temperature is controlled via a thermostatic valve. Te autonomous stain- less steel quench tank is available in four standard sizes. 


台,并优化使用了控制室、伺服器、驱动总线和输 入/输出等标准部件。使用该展品,可通过触摸操作 装置KUKA SmartPad或reisPAD实现操作与编程。 该系统的另一个亮点是VectorMove应用程序。在直 角坐标中,空间移动数据仅通过向量转换。该应用 允许清理机器人不费力且同步地遵循铸造设备的脱 模剂喷涂,并取出铸件。此外,该单元还能与重叠 控制系统通信,通过与单元的重叠控制系统通信, 可实现柔性生产。


越来越高的能源成本和生产要求为生产设备提出 了新的挑战。为了应对此挑战,KUKA Industries研 发了新的压铸设备系列,是配有触摸显示屏和采用 了伺服电机驱动概念的最先进的控制装置。 该产品的优势不仅是将切边机的能耗降低了60% (取决于客户和部件),而且也完全改造了控件与 硬件,例如液压装置。 KUKA公司将在德国纽伦堡Euroguss压铸展上展 示的另一项创新产品是自动淬火槽。在淬火槽内, 热敏板能够带走槽内吸收的热能。这些水换热器直 接与铸造厂的冷却水路连接,并且工作时无需接 电。热敏板内的冷却水不与铸件接触;不需要过滤 器和循环泵,清洁工作更加容易。由于不需要泵或 控制元件,淬火槽可供随时使用。淬火液通过机械 浮阀保证自动填充,通过恒温阀控制温度。该不锈 钢自动淬火槽有四种标准尺寸。 


Metalcaster Cuts Power Consumption With Lighting Upgrade 铸造厂通过升级照明系统削减能耗


Ashland Foundry & Machine Works Inc., Ashland, Pa., has


upgraded the lighting in its casting facility. Te project, which included $109,000 in incentives from Pennsylvania’s PPL Electric Utilities, included the replacement of metal halide fixtures in the 215,000-sq.-ft. facility with an LED lighting system from Smart Start Lighting, Long Branch, N.J. Ashland executives believe the new lighting system will


improve efficiency and reduce energy consumption by as much as 85%. Te steel and iron casting facility has saved more than $85,000 since deployment. “Due to the harsh conditions, lighting has always posed a


challenge in this environment, requiring frequent maintenance and replacements, which took a toll on both our financial and personnel resources,” said Alden Roberts, facilities superinten- dent, Ashland Foundry. “We are amazed at the level of control


美国宾夕法尼亚州亚什兰的亚什兰铸造机械公司升级 了公司的照明系统,将215,000平方英尺(约2万平方 米)工厂面积的金属卤素灯更换为新泽西州朗布兰奇的 Smart Start Lighting公司生产的LED照明系统,该改 造工程得到了宾夕法尼亚州PPL电力公司的109,000美 元的资金奖励。


亚什兰公司的管理层认为新的照明系统将提高能 效、降低高达85%的能耗。自从改造后,这个生产铸 铁和铸钢件的铸造厂已经节约了超过85,000美元。 “由于环境条件差,电灯需要频繁的维修和更换,一 直以来,工厂环境对照明系统而言是个挑战,对公司的 财务和人力资源造成了损失,”亚什兰铸造厂的负责人
