Watertight case for gasketing service

As part of the display at this year’s show, Amey Plastics will be showcasing its new high-quality gasketing service. The company says it is particularly suitable for manufacturers looking for guaranteed, water-tight mouldings for products. The Hampshire injection moulding

company off ers a wide range of post- moulding services. Using a newly-purchased CNC

robot, intricate paths can be followed around any moulding in a 2D or 3D plane, to produce high-quality gaskets. The company says it has the


support for manufacturing

capability to meet the size demands of every manufacturer – from large gaskets for the automotive and rail industry, to smaller, specialist, pharmaceutical-grade parts for the medical industry.

Investments have increased PCBA capacity

At the forefront of high-tech and fast-turn PCB assembly (PCBA) for over 15 years, ASK Technology is looking forward to discussing the recent investments to increase PCBA capacity. The company has added to its production and inspection equipment and increased staff and skill sets to ensure that ideas become reality for research and design through proof of concept to prototyping. It is also prepared for production no matter its final volume or mass production location. Now, there is no need to wait

for exciting new designs to be introduced to the market due to high cost barriers such as large minimum order quantities (MOQs), long lead times and long-term volume commitments, says the company. It

helps get a product to market with no MOQs and by off ering rapid response and flexible capacity. After completing and fine tuning

a design, the next step is to produce it. The company is experienced in working in all industries with all manner of technologies. Design for manufacture reporting is provided with every job guided by ISO 9001:2015-certified quality system processes.

Five new machines for cable preparation

Five new machines will be on the Automated Cable Solutions stand, including the Carpenter cut and strip machine, PP3+ stripper crimper, a multi-core wire stripper and a digital microscope. Visitors will be able to see hand

tools, mini applicators, crimping presses, wire pull testers, cable feeders, machines for cutting cable and tubing, cutting and stripping, jacket stripping, coax stripping, wire stripping, magnet wire stripping and braid combing. The company also off ers cut,

strip and crimp machines from JAM and supplies stripping blades and spare parts for all types of cut and stripping, wire stripping and crimping machines.

It is also

an agent for GEM Terminal,

Mikropla and Hatko and off ers a large range of bandolier

terminals for side feed and rear feed terminals for mini applicators and off ers a wide range of loose piece end sleeve ferrules.

As well as new equipment, there

is a range of used equipment for sale, including Schleuniger, Komax, Kirsten, Mecal, and Gamma models.

Connectors shrink for sensor use

The latest examples from Binder’s comprehensive range of connectors include the 707 M5 connector series (pictured) which now includes an over-moulded connector on PUR cables with 3600 shielding. These are among the smallest sensor connectors currently available and will suit a variety of applications across many industry sectors including materials handling, conveyor systems and automation in general, as well as camera and security systems. Importantly for sensor applications,

these cable assemblies off er uninterrupted data transfer thanks to attenuation figures of 60dB at 1GHz. Also on display will be the latest

M12 A coded, moulded connectors which incorporate both power and signal/data contacts. These “hybrid” M12 connectors are particularly suitable for complex applications where both power and signal are required in a limited space. The Series 570 ELC (Easy Locking

Connector) is specifically for use in medical applications where there is a need for constant mating and un-mating. This connector is capable of more than 5000 mating cycles - enough to satisfy the operating requirements of many medical system applications. It features an intuitive locking system that clicks together to ensure positive mating and protection against un-mating. It is also impossible to mis-mate the connector system as the position is defined by the profile shape of the mating area. Even un-mated, the female panel mount connector has been designed to provide protection against the ingress of liquids, water splash and accidental electrical contact and, when mated, it off ers protection to IP54.
