INSPIRING, INNOVATING, CONNECTING – MACH 2020

NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION

The UK’s national manufacturing show,

MACH 2020, might still be several months

away, but anticipation is building fast and

the event is already set to be one of the

industry’s highlights of the year.

MACH is the longest-running

manufacturing and engineering exhibition in

the UK, showcasing the largest variety of

manufacturing technology solutions in the

country, all under one roof. Taking place at

the NEC in Birmingham between 20th – 24th

April, MACH 2020 is set to be one of the best

MACH 2020 is unique because of the

amount of live working machinery on

display. This means visitors will be able to

experience first-hand the power and

capabilities of the latest technology.

Jam-packed with major suppliers, and

with 95% of exhibition space now sold,

MACH 2020 is set to be an unmissable event

for the UK manufacturing and engineering

community.

In 2018, the exhibition attracted more than

25,000 visitors during the five days of the

show and has so far been credited with

generating over £200 million worth of

business for exhibitors - proof that MACH

attracts visitors with real buying power.

James Fudge, Head of Events and

Member Services at the Manufacturing

Technologies Association (MTA), which

organises the exhibition on behalf of

industry, said: “MACH 2020 is the UK’s

National event for inspiring, innovating and

connecting manufacturing and will provide

real value for our visitors. We will have all

the latest manufacturing technology

solutions available under one roof, giving

visitors an unrivalled overview of our sector

in the UK.”

He continued “With our exhibitors, we

work hard to provide meaningful

engagement points and are pleased to

announce HS2 will be exhibiting at the show,

looking to connect and work with the UK

supply chain. We also have several Catapult

Centres and the Made Smarter programme

showing what they can offer, to assist

companies with the transition into the digital

age. If you’re looking to improve your

productivity and embrace new

manufacturing technology solutions, MACH

2020 is unmissable for you and your

business.”

Technology is changing the way we live

and the way we work, transforming the way

data is gathered, information is analysed and

how businesses operate. MACH 2020 will

show how this is happening, providing the

knowledge and the solutions to enable your

business to grow.

The expansion of the Annual Investment

Allowance in the 2018 Budget from £200,000

to £1,000,000, was a specific ‘ask’ from the

MTA and will make investing in new

equipment at MACH 2020 more costeffective

for most visitors.

James Selka, DL, CEO of the MTA said:

“The continued development of

manufacturing technologies is enabling

faster, more responsive, and more efficient

processes to be implemented in businesses.

Inspire your workforce by bringing them to

the show and ensure your team are

technically up to date with the latest

technology available. MACH 2020 is a

fantastic opportunity to invest in new

equipment.”

He continued “With the increase of the

Annual Investment Allowance available and

impartial support available on site from

finance companies, there really has never

been a better time to invest in your business

and your staff.”

MACH 2020 really is the UK’s National

Manufacturing showcase, with a lively and

focused seminar programme, as well as the

Education and Development Zone all set to

help attract the next generation of engineers

HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES HONOURS

GPS INVENTORS AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE

Four US engineers were awarded the 2019

Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering

(QEPrize) during a ceremony at Buckingham

Palace for their work creating the first truly

global, satellite-based positioning system,

GPS. The QEPrize is the world’s most

prestigious engineering accolade, a £1

million prize that celebrates the global

benefit of engineering innovation on

humanity.

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales

presented the trophy to Dr Bradford

Parkinson, Hugo Fruehauf, Richard

Schwartz, and Anna Marie Spilker, who

accepted the award on behalf of her late

husband, Professor James Spilker, Jr.

Dr Bradford Parkinson – often regarded

as the ‘father of GPS’ – led the development,

design, and testing of the system. Hugo

Fruehauf developed a highly accurate,

miniaturised atomic clock, a foundational

component of the system. Richard Schwartz

engineered a satellite hardened to resist

intense radiation in space, with a lifespan

three times greater than expected. Professor

James Spilker, Jr, was the main designer of the

GPS civil signal and, with his team at

Stanford Telecommunications, built the

receiver that processed the first GPS satellite

signals.

Lord Browne, Chairman of the Queen

Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Foundation,

highlighted the critical role of collaboration in

engineering, and in groundbreaking

innovations such as GPS: “Our laureates’

success was the result of inter-disciplinary

collaboration, a drive for excellence, and an

ability to turn the fruits of scientific discovery

into practical solutions. That is what

engineers do.”, he said.

Today, an estimated four billion people

around the world use GPS. At just $2 per

receiver, GPS provides an accessible service

and a powerful tool that people can integrate

with their applications. Simple smartphone

apps can track disease outbreaks, self-driving

tractors can optimise crop harvests, and

sports teams can improve team performance.

New applications for GPS continue to

revolutionise entire industries, and its annual

economic value has been estimated to be $80

billion for the USA alone.

GPS combines a constellation of at least 24

orbiting satellites with ground stations and

receiving devices. Each satellite broadcasts a

radio signal containing its location and the

time from an extremely accurate onboard

atomic clock. GPS receivers need signals from

at least four satellites to determine their

position; they measure the time delay in each

signal to calculate the distance to each

satellite, then use that information to pinpoint

the receiver’s location on earth.

This year’s QEPrize trophy was designed

by 17-year-old Jack Jiang from Hong Kong.

Jack’s elegant trophy design won the 2019

Create the Trophy competition, an

international competition that invites those

aged between 14-24 around the world to

submit innovative trophy designs for the

world’s leading engineers. The 2019

competition saw a record number of entries,

with submissions stemming from over 50

countries worldwide.

Lord Browne of Madingley, Chairman of

the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering

Foundation, said: “This year’s laureates have

demonstrated that engineering makes things

happen. With the first global, satellite-based

positioning system, they created an

engineered system which provides free,

immediate and accurate information about

position and time, anywhere around the

globe.

“The world now depends on GPS

completely and without exception.

“The high-frequency trading systems,

telecommunications and electricity grids of

today are all built around GPS. And we will

rely on it for the drone delivery systems, selfdriving

cars and climate monitoring solutions

of tomorrow.

“In honouring the 2019 prize winners, we

hope to inspire the next generation of

engineers to continue to push back the

frontiers of the possible.”

Bradford Parkinson said: “Today marks a

landmark moment in all of our lives – there is

no prize for engineering greater than this, it is

an honour. This recognition reflects the

responsibility incumbent upon those

developing technology today to strive to do

so for the good of humanity. Day-after-day,

we are astounded at the new ways in which

people across the world use GPS. It is a

‘System for Humanity’ in each and every

sense.”

Hugo Fruehauf said: “The accuracy of

modern GPS satellites astounds me. The

atomic clocks we built for the satellites were

accurate to within billionths of a second, but

today’s generation are working a factor of 100

times better than that. They’re a lot like wine,

in a sense – they only get better with time.

And they have to be accurate; the timing for

GPS is used for core systems around the

world – vital infrastructure like banking

systems, telecommunications networks, and

power grids. Today the world relies on those

clocks.”

Richard Schwartz said: “One of the best

things about GPS is its accessibility. We

designed the system to produce a signal that

anyone can use, regardless of where they are

on the planet. Today, engineers around the

world can still access that signal, for free, and

use it to build creative solutions to benefit

people around them. It took a great deal of

collaboration to make the system work, and

it’s great to see the next generation

collaborating on innovative products now

because of that.”

Anna Marie Spilker, on behalf her late

husband, Professor James Spilker, Jr, said:

“Jim's mission statement has always been to

create, teach, and mentor for world-changing

benefits to humanity through his engineering

talents. When working on GPS, Jim knew that

it could be of profound benefit globally, and

he was right; because of their work, Jim and

his colleagues have helped billions of people

around the world. He was immensely proud

of that. He said many times that "Engineering

technology is the necessary catalyst for

progress to world changing benefits to

humanity; it's magic.””.

HOW TO SOURCE DEIONISED WATER

While it is vital to a huge number of

industrial processes, the sourcing of

deionised water can require significant

capital expenditure. Here, the Sales Director

of SUEZ Water Purification Systems Ltd,

Steve Mines, outlines the options available to

manufacturers.

Water plays a key role in a broad range of

industrial processes, such as surface

preparation, coating and laser cutting but

water sourced from the mains normally

contain contaminants. These include ions

that have come from the ground, such as

sodium and calcium and from water pipes,

such as iron and copper. These can cause a

host of issues with production machinery,

including corrosion, the build-up of minerals

and contamination. Water used in many of

these processes, therefore, must first be

treated or purified to remove these ions. This

process is called deionisation.

There are numerous routes a

manufacturer can take to source deionised

water. For those that only require small

amounts for their operations, it can be

bought off-the-shelf, but for manufacturers

that need a ready and consistent supply, a

cheaper and more efficient approach in the

long run would be to produce it in-house.

This can be achieved using deionisation

cylinders and electro-deionisation (EDI)

systems, but both approaches have their

drawbacks. For deionisation cylinders, the

ion-exchange resins that are central to their

operation must be replaced or regenerated

regularly, a process that requires expensive

specialist equipment. A single EDI unit,

meanwhile, may operate for a few years

before a replacement is required, but the

costs associated with the purchase,

installation and running of these systems can

be significant.

As such, the most cost-effective means of

getting access to deionised water for many

manufacturers will be a subscription-based

service. Leading water purification

companies have invested in central cylinder

processing facilities, taking on all the capital

costs associated with the supply and

regeneration of ion-exchange resins, so that

customers can obtain pure water easily with

minimal outlay.

The way these services work is

straightforward. Taking SUEZ’s Cylinder

Exchange Service as an example, a customer

can purchase the cylinder it needs to fulfil its

needs for deionised water. When the resin in

this cylinder is exhausted, the customer

sends a purchase order or pre-paid voucher

to SUEZ. The company then organises the

collection of the exhausted cylinder,

regenerates the resin it contains at its facility

in Peterborough, UK, and then returns it—all

within seven working days.

As the customer can own the cylinder, it is

a highly traceable and transparent system.

Regenerating the resin is more

environmentally friendly than replacing the

resin wholesale. And by operating cylinders

in tandem, so that one is in use while the

other is being regenerated, any production

downtime can be kept to a minimum.

Given the importance of deionised water

to all manner of industrial processes, it is

vital that manufacturers choose the right

technologies for its production and trust their

supplier. As we have seen, a subscriptionbased

system may prove to be the most costeffective

option to secure this vital resource.

2016, and has just completed her three-year

Advanced Level Apprenticeship in CNC

machining. Beth stood out for a number of

reasons, including her role as team leader,

excellent academic performance, time spent

mentoring younger apprentices, as well

implementing a number of improvement

projects throughout the company,

including one which saved the company

over 45 hours of CNC grinding time per

month.

In a month of unprecedented success for

Beth, she has also been shortlisted for the

GTA England Apprentice of the Year

Awards, which will take place in February

2020; collected the Final Year Apprentice

Award at Mazak’s internal Apprentice

Awards, and won 2019 Best Senior Craft

Apprentice at Worcestershire Group

Training Association’s (WGTA) Annual

Awards.

Second year mechanical apprentice, Dan

Coupland, was another Mazak winner at this

year’s WGTA Annual Awards, picking up

the Engineering Endeavour Award.

Richard Smith, European Group

Managing Director at Yamazaki Mazak,

commented: “Beth is without doubt one of

our stand-out apprentices, and has very

quickly become a key member of the team,

who is well-respected by her colleagues for

her knowledge, skill and determination to

improve how her section functions. As such,

the resounding success she has experienced

this year is thoroughly well-deserved.”

He continues: “Apprentices are the

beating heart of our business, and are an

incredibly important part of futureproofing

our operations here in Worcester for years to

come. To Beth, Dan, and all the winners of

our internal Apprentice Awards, on behalf of

everyone here at Yamazaki Mazak, I’d like to

offer a huge congratulations. Our industry

really is in safe hands.”

Beth is one of 15 apprentices from the

Worcestershire area to have completed their

apprenticeships with Mazak in 2019. This

year’s graduating cohort also includes

Jemma Dighton, who is the first Industrial

Cadet to complete her training at Mazak.

Jemma undertook a week’s placement as part

of the Industrial Cadet programme with

Mazak in July 2015, and successfully applied

for an apprenticeship the following year.

Having completed her apprenticeship,

Jemma was recognised with an Industrial

Cadets Gold Award.

18 new recruits joined the Mazak

Apprenticeship Scheme in September 2019.

This takes the current total of apprentices

training with Mazak, across a number of

different disciplines, including CNC

machining, electrical, mechanical, sheet

metal and fabrication, to 47.

Applications for Mazak’s 2020

Apprenticeship Scheme opened on 1st

SHEET METAL

50TH ANNIVERSARY FINDS GRITTER MANUFACTURER

ECON GOING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

If you find yourself driving behind a gritter or

salt spreader in the UK this winter, there is an

80 percent chance it was bought or hired from

Econ Engineering by the local council or

highways contractor. The company is the

largest British manufacturer of such vehicles,

producing 360 units per year at its factory in

Ripon, North Yorkshire, from where it also

operates a growing hire fleet.

he Bystronic laser cutting machine control.

More than 70 percent of the output from the

laser machine is folded on three Bystronic press

brakes. Two of them, rated at 320 tonnes / 4.1

metres and 150 tonnes / 3.1 metres, are used

either independently or in tandem for bending

very large components. In use also is an Xpert

40 tonne / 1 metre press brake for bending

smaller parts more efficiently.

Jonathan Lupton, joint managing director

commented, "We have always tried to innovate

and strive for excellence and nowhere is that

more apparent than in our use of the laser to cut

steel in our body shop. The investment has

The 220-employee, £34 million turnover

company's dominance in the market is down

to the premium quality of its products, with

all design and manufacture carried out inhouse

including painting of components.

Swiss supplier of sheet metal processing

machinery to the business, Bystronic, is

proud to have played a part in helping Econ,

for nearly one-third of its 50-year existence,

to maintain the high level of component

accuracy that underpins its reputation for top

quality.

In 2003 the second generation, Jonathan

and Andrew, sons of the founder the late Bill

Lupton, took over running the company. It

was about then that the first Bystronic laser

machine replaced a turret punch press and a

plasma profile cutter for processing the

majority of components made from mild steel

plates. In addition to being used in the

manufacture of gritting and salt spreading

equipment, the components also find their

way into snowploughs as well as bodies for

highway maintenance and road patching that

Econ mounts onto lorry chassis.

The Bystronic ByStar 6 kW laser cutting machine in action at Econ Engineering, Ripon.

The original laser machine, a ByStar 4020

with a 4 kW CO2 power source supplied by

Bystronic UK, greatly increased production

efficiency and component accuracy. Sheet metal

up to 4 metres x 2 metres could be processed on

the machine, but its 4.4 kW and then 6 kW

successors were able to accept sheet up to 6.5

metres long by nominally 2 metres wide.

The current laser machine, which was

installed in 2014, works 24/7 processing up to

35 tonnes of steel a week into any of 87,000

different components produced in batch sizes

ranging from 5- to 30-off and to an accuracy in

some cases down to ± 0.5 mm. OEE (overall

equipment effectiveness) of the machine is 63

per cent, representing the proportion of time the

laser is actually cutting metal.

more than paid off in terms of higher

production output, while improved accuracy

has almost eliminated fit-up during assembly

and cuts costs further."

SAWING

GIVE INEFFICIENCY THE CHOP

There are a certain number of applications in

the metalworking and machine shop world that

demand novel sawing solutions. A case in point

can be seen at the Donauwörth, Bavaria plant of

Airbus Helicopters, which has recently

introduced additive manufacturing into its

processes to save time, weight and costs when

producing titanium components. The company

not only develops and manufactures a range of

helicopter models, such as the H135 and H145,

but specialises in the production of more than

4000 doors for passenger and cargo aircraft

every year.

After additive manufacturing, Airbus

Helicopters separates the titanium parts from

their 400 x 400 mm titanium base plates rapidly,

economically and without damage using the

company’s recently purchased automatic

KASTOwin AMC bandsaw from Kasto.

Firstly, the base plate with 3D printed shafts

weighing up to 40 kg is transported from the 3D

printer by forklift truck to the saw and bolted

securely to a clamping mechanism. After the

machine door closes, the mechanism rotates

through 180° so that sawing is performed

upside down. This configuration offers

considerable advantages in additive

manufacturing as, after being cut, the parts

cannot topple over or buckle, preventing any

risk of damage that could lead to time-intensive

reworking, or even scrap.

With the plate being ground flat after each

build (so it can be reused), it becomes

progressively thinner. As a result, before

sawing begins, an employee has to measure its

thickness when clamped and enter the figure

into the job wizard of the AdvancedControl

CNC. The bandsaw blade then moves precisely

to the programmed height. When cutting is

complete, the shafts fall into a padded container

to prevent damage and are removed through a

flap.

Retaining the transport theme, Geismar has

successfully completed the installation of a

bespoke carbide rail sawing and drilling

machine ordered by French national rail

operator, SNCF. The machine is now part of the

SNCF facility in Saulon, Bourgogne-Franche-

Comté. According to the customer’s

expectations, this fully automated machine

contributes to the operations of SNCF’s ‘Centre

d’excellence rail’, the only workshop in France

which includes a production line dedicated to

short rails.

The versatile Geismar machine allows

precise sawing and drilling operations on 3 to

36 m carbide rails. Use of latest-generation

technology offers high efficiency, in particular

thanks to a drill spindle with high power output

and a hydraulically driven saw blade which

eliminates vibration. Fully integrated into a

cabin, the whole installation includes the

machine, control panel and hydraulic power

unit, as well as the electrical cabinet, thus

creating a turnkey solution for SNCF. Geismar

has its UK operation in Northampton.

HE&M Saw, which is represented in the UK

by Kaltenbach, has created a number of custom

saws over the years, but none more unique than

the bespoke saw it designed for a

decommissioned plutonium manufacturing

facility located in the US. With the capability to

cut through large blocks of compressed scrap,

the custom saw can also be dissembled and

reassembled to suit requirements.

During the early 1990s, a plutonium

manufacturing facility in Colorado was

decommissioned. Although the plant is now

completely gone, it was recently discovered that

some of the buried material was contaminated

and leaking into the environment, so it had to

be dug up and disposed of properly.

To achieve proper disposal, a saw would

need to cut 0.9 m metal cubes of condensed

scrap metal into pieces small enough to fit in

208-litre drums. The cubes were deemed

hazardous and radioactive, and had to be

processed in a radiation containment facility

with 0.9 m thick walls that was only accessible

through a service door. Unfortunately, a saw

with this capability usually stands at 3.6 m high,

far larger than the service door.

As a solution, HE&M’s engineering team

designed a saw that could be dissembled by the

customer, carried through the service door, and

then reassembled to cut the compressed cubes.

This project provided the HE&M team with the

opportunity to think outside the box and design

a saw that could cut the product, while also

fitting within specific facility constraints.

Back in the UK, Prosaw recently received an

email from ‘Rusty Road 2 Recovery’, a not-forprofit

community interest company in

Bridgwater. The company requested assistance

with obtaining a much needed bandsaw and

wondered whether Prosaw would be generous

enough to donate the equipment?

The saw was needed as participants at Rusty

Road 2 Recovery often work in groups to take

classic vehicles – including motorcycles,

tractors and cars that are viewed by many as

scrap or beyond repair – and restore them to

their former glory. This work encourages

individuals to take pride in themselves and

their achievements. A bandsaw is vital piece of

machinery for such projects.

Phil Crick, managing director at Prosaw,

says: “The idea just struck a chord with us and

we soon delivered a Waytrain manual

bandsaw, at no cost, to help with their mission.”

Elsewhere, the Bedwas, Wales, plant of

Hydro Components, which manufactures

aluminium parts for electric vehicles, recently

introduced three Mecal Kosmos MC 305 fouraxis

machining centres and one Mecal Geos

MDT five-axis machining centre with sawing

capability from Addison Saws as part of a £9.6

million refurbishment and re-opening project.

The five-axis machine is the first of its kind in

the UK.

After the successful installation of the

Kosmos machines, Hydro’s production

manager at the Bedwas plant was interested in

setting up a single-step automated

manufacturing line, eliminating the need for the

company’s additional saws. After in-depth

discussions, Hydro placed an order for the fiveaxis

MC 302 Geos MDT 8.6 m CNC machining

centre, which can be used for slots, pockets,

holes, end slotting, tapping, rigid tapping,

drilling and flow drilling. The addition of a 400

mm saw blade enables the user to cut pieces to

length before machining.

Of course, not all sawing operations are for

metal. With this thought in mind, the Materials

Testing Team at the Bristol-based National

Composites Centre (NCC) has recently

completed a year-long trial of the Compcut 200

composite plate saw from Sharp & Tappin with

positive results in terms of overall performance,

usability, adaptability and technical precision.

The machine met and exceeded the Testing

Team’s expectations, which cited success factors

such as ease-of-use, a fully enclosed housing,

speedy operational processing, and high

precision and cut quality. NCC is now able to

react more swiftly to R&D and urgent testing

requirements, and is increasingly able to offer

quick-turnaround cut samples to other teams in

the organisation.

larger workpieces to be machined. Its

gantry-type design adds greater rigidity and

performance, while C-axis rotation via a

direct drive, low maintenance, high torque

motor, gives 90 revs/min rotational speed;

with +/- 120 degrees on the tilting A-axis,

while 600 mm axis travel in X and Y (500 mm

in Z) maximise use of the 600 mm diameter

table. Standard spindles are in-line direct

drives with 35 kW of power and either

12,000/15,000 revs/min, an option to go to a

25 kW, 18,000/24,000 revs/min motorised

spindle is also available.

The latest version of XYZ Machine Tools’

industry-leading ProtoTRAK control system

will be shown on an XYZ RMX 3500 bed mill

and an XYZ RLX 355 ProTURN lathe. The

latest generation ProtoTRAK control, the RX

retains all the features that make ProtoTRAK

popular with 1000’s of customers, but with

the addition of a host of new features and

benefits. Central to the new control is its

15.6” touchscreen that puts all of the existing

advantages, along with more machining

information, at the users’ fingertips.

Combining the touchscreen with DXF

capability removes any requirement for a

mouse to interact with editing of programs.

The touchscreen also adds the familiar

actions of pinch to zoom, twist to rotate

making it far more intuitive and allows closer

inspection of the part program prior to

machining. The new control will be

demonstrated live on the stand to highlight

its ease-of-use and time saving benefits.

BOEHLERIT EXPANDS 3D MILLING SYSTEM

How metal-bonded diamond grinding wheels

are dressed determines their removal rate and

operating life. When they are dressed

mechanically, the diamond grains partially

lose their sharpness and break away easily.

This results in only moderate grain protrusion,

which does not allow the metal-bonded

grinding wheel to be used at its optimum

operating point.

The solution of contactless spark erosion

yields structure and retaining force in the

diamond grains. VOLLMER, the sharpening

specialist based in Biberach, Germany, has

now equipped its VPulse 500 wire erosion

machine with additional functions to dress

diamond grinding wheels using erosive

methods. Another advantage of VOLLMER's

technology is that using a hydrocarbon-based

dielectric protects the wheel packages'

clamping systems from corrosion.

“Metal-bonded diamond grinding wheels

are not only increasingly being used in tool

machining. To improve their removal rate and

operating life, spark eroding is the

recommended dressing method,” says Dr

Stefan Brand, CEO of the VOLLMER Group in

Biberach. “At EMO Hannover 2019, we

demonstrated for the first time how grinding

wheels can be dressed using erosive methods

with our VPulse 500 wire erosion machine.”

The objective is to release the maximum

output of metal-bonded grinding wheels. For a

long time, these could not be used at their most

effective operating point. One of the reasons is

sub-optimal conditioning of the abrasive

coating in manufacturing or re-profiling. In the

past, this has often led to mechanical dressing

methods being used. There are clear

disadvantages to using mechanical dressing

Under a joint sales cooperation with

Boehlerit, Ringwood-based Horn Cutting

Tools has introduced to the UK market an

expanded 3D milling programme for the tool

and mould making industry.

The ISO 00P is a universal tool system

for general mechanical engineering and

mould making. As the inserts are mounted

in a neutral position in the tool holder,

they ensure a high level of contouring

accuracy. Despite the neutral position, the

edge geometry enables a soft cut to be

achieved.

With the RHOMBItec system, Boehlerit is

presenting a universal finishing tool for all

standard materials and applications. The

indexable inserts demonstrate high

manufacturing precision and long tool life.

The axial and radial wiper geometry ensures

high productivity, outstanding surface

methods. For example, it is not possible to

obtain the required grain protrusion that

ensures a ‘cool grind’ and the required cutting

ability of the coating, even though this is the

precise advantage that the metal bond would

support because of the high grain retention

strength. In addition, the forces occurring

during mechanical dressing are a further

disturbance variable to the required accuracy

of the grinding wheel contour. This requires

great effort to monitor.

VOLLMER is now offering the

functionality needed to profile metal-bonded

grinding wheels on the VPulse500 wire

erosion machine for the first time. With

designed process engineering and specifically

developed erosion parameters, VOLLMER has

been able to effectively kill two birds with one

stone. The tailored erosion process removes

the metallic binder around the electrically nonconductive

diamond grain, resulting in an

optimum topography of the abrasive coating.

More specifically, it means there is high grain

protrusion, especially with diamond grains

that are not already damaged while achieving

a high grain retaining force. Depending on the

binder and grain size, the obtained contour

accuracy is plus/minus two microns.

Unlike other eroding processes, the VPulse

quality and vibration-free finishing, even at

high depths of cut.

The BALLtec and TORROtec milling

systems are multi-functional tools for

achieving high productivity. They allow

users to save on tool holders, as the ball nose

copying tools are suitable for semi-finishing

and finishing.

In addition, Boehlerit offers a wide variety

of indexable inserts and tool holders. The

carbide shank with brazed insert seat ensures

excellent vibration damping, resulting in

exceptional surface quality on the workpiece.

The use of ultrafine carbides for the inserts

ensures high wear resistance combined with

elevated fracture resistance, which increases

process reliability. All variants have an

internal coolant supply.

VPULSE 500 SOLUTION PROVIDES EFFICIENT

WHEEL DRESSING

500 uses a hydrocarbon-based dielectric,

meaning that the grinding wheel packages'

sensitive clamping systems do not require

special protection. With its five-axis

kinematics, the VPulse 500 automatically

measures and erodes every diamond grinding

wheel.

Thanks to the fine eroding wire, even

complex geometries can be machined on the

grinding wheel in one set-up. Internal testing

of the VPulse 500 at VOLLMER has shown

that, compared to mechanical methods, the

operating life of metal-bonded grinding

wheels can be improved significantly. In

addition, the removal rate is significantly

improved as a result of the open-pored

grinding wheel with grain-free regions. The

VPulse 500 allows users to program how

grinding wheels are dressed exactly as

required.

“Customers have the option of equipping

the VPulse 500 with four different workpiece

storage solutions, enabling up to 68 grinding

wheel packages to be processed unmanned

and round the clock,” says Dr Stefan Brand.

“This is irrespective of whether companies are

manufacturing or re-profiling diamond

grinding wheels.”

SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

MEASURING VISCOSITY WIRELESSLY

If precise mixing is a crucial process variable,

viscosity measurement may be the most

accurate way to ensure optimum

performance. But rotating mixers can lead to

very tangled wiring, so here Mark Ingham of

Sensor Technology Ltd looks at wireless

options.

Mixing is fundamental to the

manufacture of many products; in many

cases this need not be a precision operation –

although over-mixing is a waste of time and

energy. However in other cases, mixing is

more of an exact science; under-mixing will

leave the various component materials

unevenly distributed, while

over-mixing may change the

state of the end product.

One example of this is

mixing concrete. If you are

building a DIY patio, you can

splash some water into a pile

of ready mix and working it in

with a spade, but if you are

building a containment bunker for

nuclear waste or the foundations of a

skyscraper, quality control shifts to a

different paradigm! In the latter case the wet

concrete has to be fluid enough to flow into

every nook and cranny of the formwork and

for no pockets of dry concrete that won’t cure

properly.

Another example is mixing ketchup,

sauces, mayonnaise, etc. The food industry

relies on the fact that consumers can be loyal

to a particular brand their whole lives, but

are also so fickle that the slightest variation in

texture will have them up in arms.

Similarly, drugs and medicines must have

the active ingredients precision mixed with

the carrier material - the consequence of poor

mixing could be life threatening.

And in cosmetics and toiletries, the users

have incredibly high expectations. Even

something as apparently mundane as paint

requires that pigments are well mixed in for

an even colour and that the correct

consistency is attained for easy application.

There are a number of different

technologies available for measuring

viscosity, but one of the most popular and

widely used is the rotational viscometer,

which measures viscosity by monitoring the

torque required to rotate a spindle at a

constant speed within the fluid. The torque,

generally measured by determining the

reaction torque on the motor, is proportional

to the viscous drag on the spindle, and thus

to the viscosity of the fluid.

Significantly, the rotational viscometer

can run throughout the mixing process,

logging data constantly to provide a log of

the change in viscosity over time. This profile

can be compared with historic data from

earlier mixes to give detailed information

that would not be available from final target

viscosity readings alone.

However torque can be difficult to

measure; in fact traditional measuring

technologies introduce as many problems as

they solve. Because the spindle is rotating,

wires attached to a torque sensor on the shaft

would wind up and quickly snap.

Approaches using slip rings are available but

far from ideal because of costs, set-up time

and the inevitable wear and tear.

A wireless technique has been developed

using TorqSense rotary torque transducers

from Sensor Technology. These do not need a

physical connection to the rotating shaft, but

instead use a radio frequency (RF) link to

both send power to the sensing element on

the spindle and to receive torque reading

signals back from it.

TorqSense torque sensors use two tiny

Surface Acoustic Wave devices or SAWs,

made of ceramic piezoelectric material

containing frequency resonating combs.

These are glued onto the drive shaft at 90

degrees to one another. As the torque

increases one comb expands and the other

contracts proportionally to the torque being

experienced. In effect the combs act as strain

gauges but measure changes in resonant

frequency.

An RF transmitter/receiver mounted

close to the spindle emits radio waves

towards the SAWs, and collects them when

they are reflected back. The change in

frequency of the reflected waves identifies

the current torque.

In the rotational viscometer, the

TorqSense transducer is mounted between

the motor and the paddle. A double bearing

eliminates any side loads, while a torque

limiting coupling provides protection in the

event of the paddle mechanism seizing. With

the motor operating at constant speed, the

transducer provides an output of torque that

changes proportionally to the viscosity

during mixing, thus enabling the operator to

accurately measure the relative viscosity of

the mix.

Where it is important to determine

absolute viscosity rather than relative

viscosity, the system can be pre-calibrated

using specific paddles immersed in fluids

with a known viscosity. Water, for example,

has a viscosity of 0.001 Pascal seconds at

room temperature. By calibrating the

viscometer to a known sample, the absolute

torque figure can then be derived in the

application from the relative torque figure,

and the required viscosity then accurately

measured.

Using TorqSense rotary torque

transducers has simplified the design of

these new rotational viscometers while also

increasing accuracy, providing a robust and

reliable solution in challenging applications

where the absolute viscosity of the mix is a

critical factor.

RENISHAW LAUNCHES NEW SOFTWARE

TO IMPROVE AM VISUALISATION

At formnext 2019, Renishaw launched Sonic,

a new acoustic process monitoring software

to form part of the company’s InfiniAM suite.

Sonic enables engineers to detect acoustic

events within the additive manufacturing

(AM) build chamber and turn this data into

useful information on build quality. The

software is the first of its kind in the AM

industry.

The Sonic package includes four acoustic

energy sensors to detect vibration in the

build, which can be installed into any

Renishaw machine. These act like

microphones to collect data so that it can be

turned into an analysable digital signal.

Because each sensor measures the same noise

at a different time due to the speed of sound,

the software can triangulate the position of

the noise on the build plate using the time

difference between when each sensor

detected the event. In addition, the software

will present a level of certainty about where

the noise occurred. Data can be easily viewed

in graphical form, to give the user the best

understanding of what’s taking place.

“The rapid heating and cooling that takes

place during an AM build leads to residual

IMI Precision Engineering has expanded its

range of pressure sensing technology

solutions with the introduction of two new

electronic pressure sensor options, which

include IO-Link connectivity.

The new IMI Norgren 54D and 34D

Electronic Pressure Sensors can be used to

automatically monitor pressure levels in a

pneumatic system, or be used for more

complex monitoring functions in water,

hydraulic or all fluid applications.

The newly launched products will replace

the existing range of three sensors, providing

a number of operational benefits, including

ease of installation and speedy set up times

via push buttons or remotely via IO-Link

connectivity, as well as supporting accurate

application performance data capture and

stress in the part,” explained David Ewing,

AM Applications and Software Manager at

Renishaw. “While each contraction’s stress is

small, stress can build up with the part and if

the it increases past the strength of the metal

it can lead to part failure.

“Renishaw’s software suite makes it a lot

easier to visualise what is happening during

an AM build,” continued Ewing. “Renishaw

first added InfiniAM Spectral and InfiniAM

Central to its range to give manufacturers

eyes into their AM, now we’ve launched

Sonic to be the ears. These tools will help

engineers to better understand their AM

processes and identify defects early on, so

that they can stop the build, saving material

and time.”

Sonic works alongside InfiniAM Central

and Spectral, which provide improved

understanding of build quality, increased

confidence in the build process and

accelerated process development. InfiniAM

Central is even available on an app, so that

users can receive push notifications on their

build process and event history in near realtime.
