Seed Corn Sorters offer double-sided inspection

Key Technology expands its popular Veo™ family of seed corn ear sorters with the introduction of the new Veo DS, which will be exhibited at Seed Expo. Featuring top- and bottom-mounted sensors, Veo DS offers double-sided inspection, providing the highest detection capabilities to identify and remove seed corn ears with remaining husk as well as defects and foreign material from the product stream. By automating inspection, Veo sorters maximize product quality and improve process efficiency while reducing husk room labor by 75 percent or more.

Key now offers its range of Veo 16, 12, and 8 as well as Veo Max models each with double-sided or single-sided inspection and either two-way or three-way sorting to meet the needs of every seed corn ear processor operating any husker of any size. The complete family of Veo sorters inspects from 1500 to 4500 ears of corn per minute, achieving up to 98 percent sorting efficiency with gentle handling that prevents kernel loss.

“With more than 250 sorters in use around the world, Veo is the most widely adopted and successful seed corn ear sorter on the market. Most of the Veo sorters installed have been in operation for multiple seasons, and not one has experienced a critical failure. They are robust and field-proven to ensure accurate performance and maximum uptime from the beginning of the season to the end, year after year,” said Marco Azzaretti, Advanced Inspection Systems Product Manager at Key Technology.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., — Designed with the best combination of total indicated runout (TIR), clamping force and ease of use in mind, the new REGO-FIX micRun clamping system is the most accurate collet system for high-speed machining on the market.

REGO-FIX developed the micRun system for superior, high-precision clamping. It’s available in standard taper types and comprises three precision-tailored and matched components: micRun collets, micRun clamping nuts, and micRun toolholders. When used together in compliance with recommended tightening torque, the components createhigher transferable torque compared to other precision collet systems and provide a TIR of less than 0.00012” at 3 x D.

Available with internal or peripheral cooling, micRun features a patent-pending collet locking system that retains the collet in the nut for easier insertion and removal, with no extractor required. The micRun line of collets provides great flexibility with four sizes available: MR11, MR16, MR25, MR32. It also allows 16 different tool diameters ranging from Ø 1.00 – Ø 20.00 mm to be clamped in the same holder, including tools with nominal diameter with shaft tolerance h11.

eWON will be presenting two important new features of its flagship product eWON Flexy at SPS IPC Drives 2014: the embedded Web HMI functionality, ViewON3, and remote WiFi access. In service throughout the world with many thousands sold, the eWON Flexy modular M2M router is taking a firm grip in the Internet of things era with these two new functionalities.eWON Flexy is the first industrial modular M2M router (& data gateway) which allows OEMs and system integrators to link remote sites in an environment where communication technologies are constantly changing and to communicate universally with a wide range of field equipment, regardless of the protocol used.

ViewON 3: a powerful Web HMI
Thanks to viewON3, remote monitoring and equipment diagnostics are just a click away. Combined with Talk2M, eWON's cloud connectivity solution, viewON allows remote machines and equipment to be accessed from any mobile platform whatsoever. In fact, viewON is an advanced graphic interface used to design animated HMI pages for the eWON Flexy. ViewON 3 now includes HTML5 and CSS3 technologies which offer full compatibility with tablet or smartphone type mobile devices. A serious asset for real-time decision making and diagnostics.

WHMA Wire Harness Conference

Machines To Be Shown Include the SemiRigid 1050 and CoaxStrip 5200 Among Others

Schleuniger, Inc., a leading international manufacturer of high-precision wire processing machines and member of the Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association (WHMA), will present and exhibit at the 2015 WHMA Annual Wire Harness Conference at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, February 18 - 20, 2015. The conference will feature presentations on the latest issues facing the industry and include a small trade show of industry leading suppliers.  During the trade show, Schleuniger will be demonstrating select equipment from its line of benchtop wire stripping machines.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Schleuniger’s wire processing experts and experience hands-on demonstrations of Schleuniger’s two newest coaxial cable stripping machines, the SemiRigid 1050 and CoaxStrip 5200. The SemiRigid 1050 is a highly specialized machine for stripping aluminium or copper jacketed semi-rigid coaxial cables. This machine offers the precision and flexibility needed to process valuable semi-rigid coaxial cable at the highest possible quality. The CoaxStrip 5200 is a multi-step stripping machine for coaxial, multi-conductor cable and single conductor wire. Thanks to the universally designed blades, centralizers, and clamping jaws, the machine can process a full range of cables without the need for mechanical adjustments, saving the user valuable time and increasing output when switching between applications. Both machines feature a user-friendly, high-resolution color touchscreen interface and intuitive programming.
