System Collects Leak Testing Data
Cincinnati Test Systems and Sciemetric have introduced a new product that aggregates data from multiple leak test instruments into an analytics database for real-time usage. The QualityWorX CTS DataHub helps engineers find answers to the causes of leak defects and helps optimize leak tests to meet quality and yield objectives. The system allows engineers to monitor all processes on the assembly line to identify defects as they occur, so they can be resolved quickly and cost-effectively.
Automated System Installs Flow-Drill Screws
Adaptive DFS from DEPRAG Inc. automatically installs flow-drill screws. Servo control ensures complete, adaptive adjustment of every variable of the process, including driver speed, torque, angle, axial force and fastener depth. The system allows installation of the screws from both the top and the bottom of the assembly. The feedstroke and control modules are protected against debris generated during fastener installation. Fasteners can be fed via compressed air line or a magazine. The system can be integrated with a variety of robots.
Collapsible Adhesive Cartridges Reduce Waste
Film-Pak is a collapsible, film-based cartridge for dispensing two-component adhesives. The cartridge reduces waste by more than 85 percent compared with conventional cartridges for two-component materials.
