Brand new connection technology

Zu cohesive Connections include soldering and welding. the form-fitting Connection technology can be B. using screws (form fit through thread) and rivets. Screws (positive locking through self-locking) count at the same time non-positive Connection technology, which also includes clamps or wedges. We report on numerous mechanical fasteners or components for connections or attachments in mechanical engineering applications. Electrical connectors like Connectors or clamps, see Electrical Engineering.

Connection technology for special industries

The following new developments were made for special Industries like Technical Building Services, Medical Technology, food technology, Microsystems Technology, Mobile Machinery  

  • Food producers have so far often been skeptical about the use of connectors in sensitive areas. They fear that the outlines of interfaces will break through the easy-to-clean, smooth surfaces. But you need them in the product-related area for cleaning. Harting has developed a special connector for such applications. The Han F+B withstands intensive cleaning. 
  • Tractors, combine harvesters and seed drills are at the mercy of wind, weather and dirt every day. Damage or signs of wear and tear are therefore inevitable, often have to be repaired directly on the field and often with a variety of challenges. Reliable, mobile and versatile welding systems are an important support in this case. Fronius offers for...
  • The "Compact" connection terminal of the 221 series from Wago stands for fast, simple and safe wiring in classic electrical installations in buildings. Product managers, designers and developers at device manufacturers are now increasingly discovering the advantages of this terminal with a lever – from component manufacture to equipment production and device connection to the end product....
  • Rampf Production Systems has developed a fully automated gluing system for external vehicle parts such as side walls, rear spoilers, tailgates and spoiler lips. The combination of innovative mixing and dosing technology, automation and robotics maximizes the precision, speed and flexibility of the manufacturing processes.

Connection technology for machines and systems

A classic area of ​​application for the connection technology is the Engineering. While the focus used to be more on connections between metallic materials, these are now being partially replaced by plastics. These make their own demands on the connection technology and can be joined together using laser welding, for example. Read below what's new, whether detachable or non-detachable - a secure hold is guaranteed in any case!

The Heinrich Kipp Werk presents a new system for stainless steel screws with seal. The Hygienic use Screw and sealing system was developed for use in hygiene-sensitive areas. As part of the re-certification by the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) the cooperation partners Kipp and Freudenberg Sealing Technologies optimized the stainless steel sealing screws. The revised stainless steel components are certified according to EL Class I AUX.

tretter11118Tolerance sleeves can be used in a variety of ways as non-positive connection elements, and connections that have been created once can be released again in contrast to pressing or gluing. This also applies to torque transmission - very different from, for example, the wedge and Interference fit.

martin1218The construction of assemblies from fiber composite components follows its own rules. The key factor here is the design of high-precision connection points, which enable the lightweight components made of glass or carbon fibers to be assembled without stretching during subsequent assembly. The peelable PET fitting elements of the product line "M-Tech L" from Martin are tailor-made for this task.

Henkel presents his new Dosing machine DM 502 with the newly developed Mixing head MK 825 PRO. The new features enable high process stability to be achieved in the fully automatic dosing and processing of sealing foams, adhesives and potting compounds. As a result, users receive a high-quality Bonding, Sealing or sealing of components.

The group of the rather inconspicuous standard parts and operating parts also include the Locking. The Heinrich Kipp Werk produces them at the location in Germany with a large machine park. Numerous indexing plungers leave the factory here every year. Kipp holds the intellectual property rights for many of the 1300 different designs. In the following we present the new developments of these operating parts such as a locking bolt in hygienic design, a locking bolt with an eccentric lever.

With the strong increase in e-mobility, a topic that is gaining in importance in the Automotive industry Although it has always played an important role, in practice it was played out in secret: thermal and mechanical Put or joining of sheets, assemblies and components. Tox Pressotechnik offers with the e clinching a process that takes account of increasing electrification.

The right screw connectiong plays a crucial role in many technical designs. Have you heard of the “captive screw” or know how a “direct screw connection” can make the difference in your assembly? AI has also already moved into it detachable connection technology. In this article we will introduce you to innovations from the world of screw connections that show why these small components are so important.

The  Heinrich Kipp Plant has a snap lock Series included. The individual snap locks, also in stainless steel, are suitable for flush installation in doors, flaps or drawers, among other things. Handling is very easy: the user simply has to press the respective device shut. The toggle latch guarantees secure locking.

yaskawa0819Yaskawa is expanding the "Arcworld" portfolio with two very compact turnkey, robot-based inert gas welding cells. Motoman robots, positioners, controls and power sources are combined in a space-saving and ready-to-use platform on one platform. The robot cell can be moved quickly and easily if necessary.

The highly viscous and stable 1K UV and light-curing acrylate adhesive "Photobond SL4165" from Delo, which acts as a sealant in industrial production, can be used for the "cured-in-place gasket" and "formed-in-place gasket" processes will. In order to ensure the tightness of the metering bead, the material must be applied precisely and with repeatability. This is easily possible with the Viscotec dispensers.
