Nordson EFD Introduces New GV Series Gantry Fluid Dispensing Robot with Vision

The CCD camera converts pixels into digital values to deliver precise, high-quality images. The proprietary dispensing software confirms workpiece presence and placement and automatically adjusts as in-process variations occur.

Airfed welding systems meeting latest HSE requirements

Wilkinson Star is now UK and Ireland distributor for Weltek Airfed Grinding & Welding Systems.


he Weltek range of Airfed Welding and Grinding Systems has been designed to provide a new solution

Hybrid cable entry possible

With the new KT-M cable grommet from icotek, the built-in plugs and installation jacks are

integrated directly into the icotek cable entry strips KEL, KEL-U or KEL-ER.


he KT-M is ideal for interfacing to signal, data, power or hybrid connectors by simply screwing them into the

threads of the KT-M. Even hose fittings or pressure compensation elements can be easily screwed to the KT-M. The grommet KT-M is built on the basis of a large KT

cable grommet. In this spout a polyamide body is integrated. The KT-M is available with inner threads of M12x1,0, M16x1,5, M20x1,5 and M25x1,5. Alternatively, the blind grommet KT-M is available for special solutions. The integrated polyamide body is completely closed on one side. The effective area is 24x24mm, the wall thickness 6mm. Special bores can be made or smaller flange bushes

can be attached. The KT-M is available from now on and can be obtained directly from the manufacturer.
