Eldes – Electronic design E


Since 1983 Eldes has been producing and installing real time control systems applied to metal cold forming and thread rolling machines.


ldes’ real time control systems are based on the supervision of the force developed in the production process, by means of piezoelectric sensors applied to the sensitive points of the structure. Today this type of control is well proved and used worldwide. It is the


anticipated, the progression in cold forming technology, developing the new generation of process monitoring to which Helios 2K and Titanus 2F belong. Eldes’ aim was to give the operator a means to understand and oversee the forming process, tailoring the controls according to the user’s ever increasing needs and continuously improving the man-machine interface. The technological know-how Eldes has developed in cold forming has enabled it to create dedicated networks for production


data collection and dimensional measures acquisition systems. The shop floor data collection network Fastener Factory enables the complete control of data production in the directional centre


of any manufacturing company specialised in cold forming. To control production quality the Themis 2K optical mobile station for SPC checks is ideal for organising recurrent measurements in production for statistic control of processes. “We managed to overcome the economical crisis thanks to our flexible structure, and we are looking to the future with passion,


enthusiasm and self confidence,” says Eldes. “Our project activity is continuously involved with the innovation of products and technology, including the improvement of the user interface and of measurement methods. Thanks to our experience, we can also supply dedicated systems for customised applications, in addition to the standard instruments.”

representations in Europe, Japan, China, Korea, India, Americas and at places where the automotive industry is located. It supplies more than 450 installations with products for corrosion protection all over the world. “For the last 35 years we have focused our development


efforts on satisfying the ever increasing demand for high performance corrosion coatings from the car industry, and have become a leading force in the global market of corrosion protection under thin layer for metal parts and especially fasteners. The commercialisation of GEOMET®


and the technical support are ensured by NOF Metal Coatings Group on a worldwide scale.”


Prelok plans strategic alliance


Plans for a strategic alliance in Spain between Prelok and Inelca are to go ahead in an attempt to offer a range of benefits to the customer.


T and DACROMET®


he plans are in a response to customer demand and it is hoped that the alliance will optimise costing, lead to shorter delivery terms and improved logistic solutions. Streamlining the communication with customer through


the introduction of a single point of contact to handle all plating, coating, packing and transport needs will ultimately lead to customer benefits. Spanish firm Inelca have more than 40 years experience in


surface treatments and plating technologies. They are experts in Zn, Zn-Ni, Zn-Fe platings, passivations, top coats and Zinc flakes. Prelok offers a wide range of pre-applied and locking products including the Tuflok®


nylon locking patch and the Precote® range


of thread adhesive and sealant coatings, with key advantages being the elimination of secondary locking features such as nuts and washers. With over 50 years experience in the field Prelok has become a main provider of sealing and locking coatings for threaded components and have a number of production plants throughout Europe including Barcelona in Spain. Both companies have quality approvals including ISO 14001


and TS 16949 and focus mainly within the automotive sector. Jordi Agullo, general manager of Prelok Spain said: “We


believe that this alliance will offer customers significant benefits including reduced delivery lead-times and overall cost advantages.”
