818 Grieve (2014_02_19 02_56_07 UTC)Grieve Corporation introduces No. 818, a 1000°F high-temperature universal oven, currently in use for cleaning and heat treating fuel nozzles at a customer’s facility.

Workspace dimensions inside this unit measure 24” wide x 36” deep x 24” high.  24kW power is installed in Incoloy sheathed tubular heating elements.  A 1000 CFM, 3/4 HP recirculating blower provides a front-to-back horizontal “universal” airflow to completely surround the workload.

This Grieve oven features 8” thick insulated walls, an aluminized steel interior and exterior, plus inner and outer door gaskets.  The inner gasket seals directly against the door plug, while the other gasket seals directly against the front face of the oven for optimum seal integrity.  The unit accommodates up to seven shelves on 3” centers.

Standard equipment includes a digital indicating temperature controller, manual reset excess temperature controller with separate heating element control contactors, a recirculating blower airflow safety switch and a UL Listed control panel, top-mounted to minimize floor space requirements.

All standard universal ovens by Grieve meet the requirements of National Fire Protection Association Standard 86, Industrial Risk Insurers, Factory Mutual and OSHA Standards.

This unit was entirely designed, engineered, built and full tested by Grieve.

Longtime market leader in all-electric injection presses NIIGATA will introduce two new machines to the market at the upcoming NPE in Orlando, March 23-27.

Visit NIIGATA at NPE Orlando, Booth W-1363, March 23rd-27th with a free guest pass.

NEW: NIIGATA all-electric MDVR110S7000 (Vertical IMM with 2-station rotary table)

NIIGATA introduced the world’s first all-electric vertical IMM in 1996 and its latest model, the S7000, capitalizes on NIIGATA’s long history and 100% focus on making all-electric machines.

Highlights of the new MDVR110S7000 include:

~While many vertical machines have high table heights, forcing the customer to build a work platform around the machine, the NIIGATA patented vertical toggle system allows lowering the table height on this 110-ton model to just 3.4 feet from the ground, including leveling pads.

~The machine has a wider table than standard verticals, allowing larger molds to be placed on the platen. The MDVR110S7000 boasts a mold size capacity of 500mm x 500mm (33.64” x 33.64”).

~Fast table rotation of under 1 second.

~Ultra low-speed injection can be beneficial in molding thicker walled insert jobs. NIIGATA boasts an ultra low-speed capability of just .01 mm/sec injection speed.

~With a 2-station machine running separate “A” and “B” mold halves, a molder can often encounter problems with differences in mold halves causing part variations.  With the NIIGATA Vertical, two completely independent injection profiles can be set for the “A” and “B” halves, allowing the molder to finish the job without making expensive and time consuming mold repairs or adjustments.

NEW: NIIGATA MD110S7000 horizontal all-electric IMM

Having introduced our first fully-electric machine at the Japan Plastics Fair in 1984, NIIGATA has devoted 100% of its R&D resources toward improving all-electric molding machine technology.  Using the Japanese Kaizen system, we are now introducing our 7th generation of the all-electric machine, built entirely in Japan to tough quality standards.

A few NEW features of the MD110S7000 all-electric IMM include:

~Elimination of moving platen’s lower side tie bar bushings to improve the cleanliness of the part drop area.

~Addition of an FDA-approved grease supply system that allows medical cleanroom and food grade applications with fewer worries about part contamination.

~NIIGATA’s standard high nozzle touch force, similar to that of the hydraulic machines, can now be dialed down when the application allows, to promote longer sprue bushing life.

~Fully automatic and adjustable mold clamping force is continuously monitored by tie bar sensors.

~NIIGATA’s horizontal machines boast the industry’s shortest footprint, but heaviest overall weight to provide superior machine durability.

Available from German Machine Tools of America, the Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS gear honing machine features direct-driven, digitally controlled spindles for the tool and the workpiece, enabling precise, rigid synchronization

Ann Arbor, Michigan – Now available from German Machine Tools of America (GMTA), the Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS gear honing machine features direct-driven, digitally controlled spindles for the tool and the workpiece, enabling precise, rigid synchronization. The Präwema Honing gear finishing process produces quality comparable to grinding results for spur and helical gears, as well as shafts. The machine’s software checks the stock allowance and workpiece runout and then optimizes the X-axis approach distance. Measuring the workpiece does not affect the cycle time and the process can reduce cycle times by 3 to 5 sec.
The machine features a pick-up design to enable automation. The workpieces and dressing tools are loaded and unloaded by the workpiece spindle. The large X-axis travel enables placement of additional stations adjacent to the loading/unloading station inside the machine, such as a two-flank roll-checking device. External robots and conveyor systems can also be integrated by GMTA engineering.

The honing machine is constructed on a natural granite bed to promote stability and control thermal fluctuations. The X and Z axes are equipped with linear motor drives. The cutting tool is clamped with a hydraulically operated system and the tool spindle can be swiveled into a vertical position, enabling easy access. Additional options are available for machining over-sized drive shafts as long as 850 mm and the Präwema SynchroFine 205 HS-D model, equipped with two spindles, is offered for further reduction of cycle times.
