Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, announced today it has been recognized as a Taiwan Top 20 global brand for the 8th consecutive year by the prominent Best Taiwan Global Brands survey. The assessment determined that Delta’s brand value over the past year increased 6% to USD266 million, thus, achieving the highest growth rate within the Taiwanese industrial brand segment. The uniqueness of Delta’s brand, which entails a seamless integration of its business model and corporate social responsibility, continues to thrive through the development of innovative solutions that are cementing the creation of sustainable cities. In coming days, Delta will host an UN official side event and participate in the Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF), both during COP24 in Katowice, Poland, to share its experiences in cultivating sustainable development through technology innovation with global stakeholders.
Oil is the black gold under the earth’s surface. To reach this precious resource, innovative and extraction technologies are required. Before the fossil fuel reaches us in the form of the familiar end products we use every day, it not only has a history stretching back over millions of years but also has travelled in a long journey. For the last five decades, Eichenberger Gewinde AG’s principal activity has been the design and manufacture of highly accurate and cleverly-designed screw drives. It uses this wealth of experience and technical know-how to support its partners in their process of innovation. Dynamic-mechanical functional elements are highly adaptable, and this means they can contribute significantly to the success of drive technology projects. The Swiss thread specialist is aware of this and makes use of this potential.
The European REACH regulation, which aims to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment, imposes strict rules on the use of chemical substances. Hexavalent chromium used in the surface treatment of numerous SOURIAU products is one of the prohibited substances. With the desire to keep its technical leadership in connectors for harsh environments and to continue to further innovate together with its customers, the research and development department of SOURIAU has invested for several years in research into new manufacturing processes. When completed, these should allow SOURIAU to comply with the regulations imposed by REACH, and at the same time safeguard the employment of its personnel in France for the future. Interview with THOMAS PICHOT, manager of the aeronautic R & D Unit
Operational safety is crucial around industrial equipment and machinery. This is especially the case around pivoting safety doors, hatches and hoods, which need to be closed to ensure the safe usage and security of machines.
On the 15th of November 2018, Alfa Power installed and tested its latest charger, and the specifications have been calibrated to achieve 120kW. For now, Alfa Power has decided to cap the supply at 100kW. The ultra-fast charger will be unlocked to achieve its full potential when the market requires. The ultra-fast charger underwent a successful live test at the public launch event and will be available for public use via the My Alfa Power network in the very near future.
New Jabro®-Solid2 JS750 end mills from Seco boost tool life by 25 percent to 40 percent compared to previous tool technology. As counterparts to the company’s industry-leading JS500 series, the new JS754 and JS755 tools provide cost-effective high performance designed specifically for processing challenging materials typically found in the aerospace sector, including ISO M (stainless steel) and S (heat-resistant super alloys and titanium).
Seco Tools has expanded its popular family of T4-12 helical milling cutters to include five new cutters for economical and versatile roughing and semi-finishing operations. The addition of three metric and two imperial sizes makes Seco’s range of long-reach, replaceable-end tangential helical cutters the industry’s most complete, spanning diameters from 40 mm to 100 mm (2" to 4").
Seco Tools introduces new larger LP09 inserts designed to boost productivity and process security with the company's High Feed 2™ cutter bodies. The new inserts are designed for high-feed milling operations including face, helical interpolation, slotting, side milling, pocketing and plunging, in challenging workpieces such as the sticky materials often found in the mould and die, aerospace, and oil and gas industries.
Seco Tools added a new grade format and several new geometries to its already expansive line of PCBN (polycrystalline cubic boron nitride) inserts. These additions enhance hard turning operations, broaden the extremely tough Seco CH3515 insert grade and introduce a new solid CBN150 insert grade, special long and short wiper geometries and laser-etched chipbreakers.
Seco Tools expands its long-reach turning and boring capabilities with additions to its well-known series of Steadyline® vibration-damping turning/boring bars and their respective heads. These new products include 25 mm (1.00") diameter Steadyline® bars, GL25 turning heads, 100 mm (4.00") diameter Steadyline® bars, and additions to the range of rough and fine boring heads for Steadyline® bars.
