Fasteners: News from screws, rivets, bolts

For the positive and non-positive Connection Technology in mechanical and plant engineering, users need Fasteners such as screws and nuts, rivets, springs, threaded rods, washers, wedges, clamps, tolerance sleeves and others standard parts according to DIN, ISO and customer-specific, for example made of steel, stainless steel or plastic. We report on the elements with which you hold your construction together economically.

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.

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 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.

For manual adjustment for fixing and clamping clamping lever deployed. That Heinrich Kipp Werk offers many variants of clamping levers, clamping levers and eccentric levers for classic mechanical engineering, tool making, plant construction and other industries. We report here on the constant expansion of the product range. Brand new is a clamping lever than All-plastic.

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.

The Emka fittings Group offers hinges, seals, fasteners and accessories for Control Cabinets, in control cabinets, air conditioning and transport. From the portfolio of 30.000 products, we present the New Products. Recent optimization are a Adapter for standard closures and the Multipoint closure, which the company also on the Hannover Messe will introduce.

tretter20719Tolerance sleeves are slotted sheet metal sleeves with beads that are embossed like wave crests. The standard material used is stainless steel spring strip, which can withstand temperatures of up to 250 ° C. Special designs can even be used at temperatures of up to 450 ° C or in aggressive chemical environments. Dr. Tretter presents its tolerance sleeves or tolerance rings in one Robotic arm installed to show what they can do.

As a cold joining method for steel and aluminum, the so-called Flow drill screws by. In addition to high speeds, this also requires high contact pressures, such as those used in the screw systems from WSM automation deliver with the highest dynamics and precision.

Years ago, commercially available self-tapping screws were often used for sheet metal thicknesses of 1 mm and more, but this is no longer possible today with increasing reduction in sheet metal thickness due to the exhaustion of potential cost savings. In particular, the process-reliable assembly of pre-perforated, thin sheet metal turns out to be by no means trivial in the area of ​​self-tapping screw connections. Ejot knows how to do it and presents the "Sheettracs" as the solution.
