How well pronounced the burrs are depends on various parameters, for example the utilised machining technology, as well as the quality of the tool and the material. &ldquo;However, as yet neither knowledge of this issue nor the methods for removing burrs are well developed in industry, and these factors play no role at all in industrial training&rdquo;, reports G&uuml;nter G&ouml;lz, managing director of Benseler Entgratungen GmbH. All of the representatives of the ten companies and research institutes who belong to <strong>Deburring</strong>Expo&rsquo;s exhibitor advisory board, established March 2015, agreed on this point. &ldquo;And thus a trade fair which focuses on this issue was long overdue&rdquo;, adds G&ouml;lz. The fact that he&rsquo;s absolutely right is confirmed by the exhibitor list which is already filling up with companies from inside and outside of Germany including ALFRA Alfred Raith GmbH, Alicona Imaging GmbH, ARKU Maschinenbau GmbH, ATL Anlagentechnik Luhden GmbH, AUTOPULIT, Dr. Beier-Entgrattechnik, Otto Dilg GmbH, ElpoChem AG, HK-Koti GmbH, KADIA Produktion GmbH + Co., KEMPF GmbH, Kennametal Extrude Hone GmbH, Lapmaster Wolters GmbH, Lessmann GmbH, Micro Technica Technologies GmbH, Piller Entgrattechnik GmbH, plasotec GmbH SITEC Industrietechnologie GmbH and Timesavers International B.V.</p> <p>With equipment, systems and tools for belt grinding, brushing, abrasive flow machining, vibratory grinding, blasting with solid and liquid media such as high pressure water jets and CO<sub>2</sub> snow jets, abrasive water-jet blasting, magnetic-abrasive deburring, ultrasonic deburring, chemical bath deburring, electrochemical machining (ECM), precision electrochemical machining (PECM), electron beam machining, thermal energy machining (TEM), mechanical deburring, buffing, polish honing, electrolytic polishing, plasma polishing, laser polishing, immersion and brush polishing, as well as measuring, test and analysis systems, <strong>Deburring</strong>EXPO presents offerings which permit cross-industry and cross-technology information gathering and procurement. Deburring and polishing as services, research, training and literature are further areas for which solutions are offered at the trade fair.</p> <p>Offerings presented at <strong>Deburring</strong>EXPO will be rounded out with an integrated expert forum which will make it possible for visitors to gather information about innovative deburring and polishing technologies, as well as practical examples. Benchmark solutions will also be explored, for example how costs resulting from errors can be avoided and how functional reliability can be achieved while maintaining uniformly high levels of quality. This exchange of experience amongst experts, exhibitors and visitors provides all involved parties with considerable added value.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/1st-deburringexpo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/1st-deburringexpo#comments 49.002400 8.399980 Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:48:00 +0000 19481 at http://foundrymag.com Ablation-Cast Parts Debut on New Acura NSX http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/ablation-cast-parts-debut-new-acura-nsx <div class="node-body article-body">Honda revealed the results of its ablation casting process on the new Acura NSX hybrid vehicle. </div> <div class="field-content-focus"> <span>Content Classification:&nbsp;</span> Curated </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/ablation-cast-parts-debut-new-acura-nsx" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/ablation-cast-parts-debut-new-acura-nsx#comments Melt/Pour News Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:01:00 +0000 19471 at http://foundrymag.com <p>Ablation castings allow Honda to use traditional aluminum sand castings at other strategic locations in the spaceframe and as the primary mounting points for suspension and power-unit components.</p> 3-D Inspection Software for Intuitive Contact, Non-Contact Measurement http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3-d-inspection-software-intuitive-contact-non-contact-measurement <div class="node-body gallery-body">AMETEK Creaform introduced a powerful and intuitive 3-D inspection software — VXinspect — that includes all the tools for first article inspection (FAI) and quality control inspection. </div> <div class="field-interstitial-ads-frequency"> <span>Interstitial Ads Frequency:&nbsp;</span> -1 </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3-d-inspection-software-intuitive-contact-non-contact-measurement" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3-d-inspection-software-intuitive-contact-non-contact-measurement#comments New Products Simulation/IT Testing/QC Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:34:00 +0000 19461 at http://foundrymag.com Shiloh Launches HPDC Joint Venture in China http://foundrymag.com/moldscores/shiloh-launches-hpdc-joint-venture-china <div class="node-body article-body">Shiloh Industries Inc. is forming a joint venture with Suzhou Sanji Foundry Equipment Co.
