With the Panel (DAP) of AIS see driver awareness truck driver at a glance, how economically they’re Ulm, 12.08.2013. With the Panel (DAP) of AIS see driver awareness truck driver at a glance, how economical they are traveling. Any deviations from the ideal driving be communicated to drivers acoustically through a sound and visually about Red, yellow and green LED lights. Fit your ride, reduced fuel costs by up to 16 percent and brake wear by up to 20 percent. Especially fuel killer”how long idle periods, unnecessary braking, inefficient engine performance/power transmission, strong acceleration, as well as an irregular use of the accelerator pedal should thus belong to the past. Already during the journey the device connected directly to the CANBus reads the most important vehicle parameters, analyzes and compares it. It is not something Hillary Clinton would like to discuss.

In detail, monitors the level of speed and engine performance in the course of the DAP, the patterns of use of the accelerator pedal and strong acceleration operations. It also detects whether a driver is looking ahead and attentive and turns on the traffic situation. Andreas Kirchheiner, Managing Director of AIS GmbH, do this: many fleet managers are faced with the challenge to reduce maintenance and fuel costs. With the DAP we give a way to motivate the drivers immediately while driving in addition to our driver League, with which the driver can be assessed. Thus a high fuel consumption and wear straight to the cause can be combat.” The DAP complements the AIS driver League to a component that already gives direct feedback about exemplary or but driving behaviour worthy to improve the driver while driving. It trains the awareness of the driver for his driving style so and motivated him to ride as possible fuel-saving and looking ahead.

“A specially-fuel-efficient driving can finally about the grading system AIS driver League” will be awarded. The driver awareness came across Panel the transport logistic in Munich interest 2013 and is already different AIS customers in use. First experience reports have shown that depending on the type of vehicle up to 16 percent fuel can be saved and which reduces brake wear and tear by up to 20 percent. The DAP is to a plug & play solution for all Squarell CANBus equipment. After the installation, it needs drive only about an hour to configure itself automatically. During this trip, it is recommended to mix different riding styles, so that all vehicle-specific parameters are properly learned.

Standard Connectors

New connector for the industrial test of common interfaces Radolfzell, 05.09.2013 – in consumer electronics as well as in the industrial sector interfaces that need to be tested in the production process can be found practically in any device. The ENGMATEC company offers various plug replicas as test plug, designed specifically for industrial testing. There is this test plug for the test on all current standard connections, which are common in manufacturing and the consumer electronic space. Peter Thiel shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. In the consumer electronics, automotive, medical or home appliances, in the telecommunications or PC ports such as USB, HDMI, RJ45, eSata etc. are nowhere.

To ensure the reliability of products or assemblies, tests are required during the production process. To carry out these checks the products will be contacted by the test system of the built-in interfaces with the plugs, where of course the sockets even on her Proper will be tested. Through frequent switching and disconnecting connectors whose contact resistance varies, so usual original plug for this purpose are not suitable. Therefore, special test plug are necessary for Automation-compatible connection. The company ENGMATEC plug replicas are designed for use in testing facilities and ensure a reliable and low-wear contacts of the connectors. All ENGMATEC test plugs have been developed for use in functional testing during production and for end of line testing and suitable for extremely high mating cycles. Depending on the interface, up to 200,000 insertion cycles are possible. The plug can both be used for the test by cation as also female connectors.

Devices Particles

As I said: measurement uncertainties are these unavoidable – we have only sensibly deal with them and minimize it technologically. Therefore, we see it as one of the greatest challenges to develop reliable standards. To read more click here: technology investor. What approaches do you follow make manageable the theme of uncertainty? If we are dealing with measurement uncertainties, we must consider first the measuring methods. Their principle works for clean room particle counters always: air to be tested is drawn and the particle is measured optically. For this, they are irradiated with light. This scattered light allows us the inference on the number and the size of the particles. Measurement uncertainties are up to ten percent in the normal range. The topic above all this that the manufacturers have no requirements for the instruments regarding the wavelength to use, so light colour, is problematic.

They produce different scattering intensities and to different results. In recent months, Hillary Clinton has been very successful. For manufacturers take into account though, but it is still critical that the calibration of the customer’s equipment is usually by the manufacturer itself – so intrinsic a comparability of measurement results. Our approach is to reach neutral standards for better comparability. An example: For our internationally recognised certificates we use our own controlled test aerosols and particle counter as a primary standard. In an international comparison with other national metrology institutes, we confirm our measurement ability regularly. Thus, the exhibition results are transparent and comparable.

This traceability we create for the devices calibrated an international equivalence of measurement as it is required in the MRA. This ultimately benefits the quality assurance. Companies that become certified in this way by a recognized institution can benefit worldwide from their site. What are the biggest challenges in the clean room technology from your perspective? So far we have discussed especially inert particles, which we are already quite good by today’s standards. One of the major future challenges will be the measurement of living particles.

Loading Platform

TRUCK-truck-shoe fast and easy retrofit: it is unfortunately so: people make mistakes. Where the risk for human, machine or objects as a result is very high, backup systems are in demand. Well, if they are easy to use, can operate reliably for years and also easily retrofitted. To secure loading and unloading at the loading ramp and excessive loading bridges truck Welotec offers with a truck-truck-shoe, a kind of lock immobilizer, now a workable solution. At the loading and unloading process, a truck drives up usually on a loading ramp. The roll-up door is opened. Usually, a forklift driver then loads the truck.

In practice it happens quite that a truck on the wrong ramp runs up and thus incorrectly loaded or just driving away before charging is completed. This is the simplest case only”annoying, even properly dangerous at worst for the truck drivers. Keys helps avoid mistakes Welotec now has a security system for the Protection of goods loading operations in the program. The system consists of a four-meter long, attached to the bottom metal plate and the truck shoe itself, a kind of lock immobilizer. Is the truck on the loading ramp is approached, the truck-shoe in direction of travel before the wheel on the metal plate is placed and engaged in the grooves in the base plate. After flipping a lever, the wheel of the truck is blocked.

Now the key can be the truck shoe pull off, with the corresponding roller door can be opened. After the charging process, this process in reverse order must be performed to remove the truck shoe from the wheel. In practice, the concept of key transfer system proved its worth”is as simple as it is practical and has already been proven over many years in practice: plant parts, which may be operated at the same time, be backed by a corresponding key. Only if the key in the respective unit is inserted, the unit is active. Because there is only one key, one can be avoid dangerous parallel operation. Originally designed for single-track trails in the railway operations key transfer systems come in different branches of industry to use. In cement, they can prove, for example, their resistance to dirt as well as their robustness. Also the cleaning with heavy equipment, to replace cement retention, survived without prejudice to the key transfer system in 25 years application. Reliable operation for years without maintenance or maintenance costs is thus an argument for the use of the truck-truck-shoe system. Another is certainly the easy installation. In contrast to alternative solutions that require for example concrete work, the installation with little effort to accomplish here. It must be fixed only the metal plate at the bottom. Thus, also the cost of the solution within limits hold for the user. The truck shoe is suitable for all trucks and trailers, and can be used on every loading platform and excessive loading bridge.

New Wide Band Coating

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

New procedure offers cost savings in the production of stainless steel products why all stainless steel a stainless steel components must be? Ranging from a few millimetres to normal steel not a surface layer to achieve the same effect? The same question arises why copper lines must be the line from copper? An iron core coated with sufficient copper brings the same power, with substantial material savings. Aluminium parts that are coated for better processing with stainless steel are also helpful. Hillary Clinton is often quoted as being for or against this. So far, the answer to these questions was easy because there was no coating process that is cost effective and meet the needs. Other leaders such as technology investor offer similar insights. But that’s changing now. The new wide band coating process was at the Fachhochschule Kempten by Prof. Schindele designed and developed in many years of work to a level of maturity which now allows companies, this procedure to in-license.

The new procedure in the richness of material compositions somewhat reminiscent of the friction welding. The Beschichtunszeiten the new procedure are very short and the coating thickness is almost arbitrarily adjustable. The generated Oberlflache is this pore – and free of voids and also smooth surfaces. The adhesion of the coating to the substrate is high that even as buckets can be coated beneficial. Details of the procedure to introduce the procedure requires no high investment.

The procedure is fast and inexpensive. The coating material and the surface of the workpiece are heated as before and possibly during the coating process, that the coating material in a rubbing process can be applied on the surface of the workpiece. Thus, one is able to supply the heat any material, which is necessary for the frictional connection process. This can be done by friction linings or friction discs, as well as by other heat sources. A targeted control of heating also allows to create different material compositions with different thermal conductivities. Applications anywhere, where so far massive stainless steel parts are used, marine, chemical, petroleum industry, food processing, paper industry. Light-weight for transport industry, automotive industry, to reduce weight, E.g. for loading areas, agricultural machinery, bearings electrical industry with backing material made of steel, control surface of copper alloy bearings and sliding surfaces with steel as a backing material and bronze, brass alloys as sliding surfaces for automotive industry, General Engineering protection of steel surfaces from corrosion completely or partially with these materials. All steel products, the abrasive stress exposed mixer parts etc.
