Nordson ASYMTEK (Carlsbad, CA) introduces the CPJ+ (Calibrated Process Jetting Plus), which reduces process variability to maintain a constant Takt time by ensuring consistent flow rates. Using the proprietary Fluidmove software for Windows XP, the CPJ+ automatically compensates for fluid viscosity changes over time and batch-to-batch variations.
MovinCool (Long Beach, CA) now offers the CM25 self-contained, ceiling-mounted air conditioner with a total capacity of 25,000 Btu/h. The compact CM25 was designed for server rooms with its 20” height, build-in mounting bracket, and vibration isolators. A variable-speed inverter compressor and inverter fan motor gives the CM25 a 14 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio).
The MH052 pipe sealant from Permabond Engineering Adhesives (Somerset, NJ) has BAM approval for use in oxygen-rich environments (up to 145 psi and 140°F) due to its unique, stable formation. Normally, anaerobic sealants cannot be used in oxygen-rich environments due to instability, which could cause fire or explosions.
Carlo Gavazzi (Buffalo Grove, IL) has launched the RSBS Series Single-phase Plug-and-Play Soft Start, which reduces the amperage demand when starting heat pumps. By maintaining the starting current below fixed limits, the RSBS avoids high energy tariffs and reduces heat dissipation, allowing for a 60 percent reduction in current.
Kin-Tek Laboratories, Inc. (Marque, TX) announces the 491M-PB Module, which is used with 491M Modular Gas Standards Generators to maintain steady gas pressures within the unit and balance backpressure to the delivery system pressure. At trace concentrations (PPM, PPB, and PPT) of reactive gases, surface absorption within the transport system can significantly affect the actual mixture delivered.
Lubrication Engineers, Inc. (Fort Worth, TX) adds to its growing arsenal of reliability solutions with its new Clear Grease Guns, a simple, cost-effective solution for avoiding costly grease cross-contamination errors. Clear Grease Guns ensure 100 percent visual grease identification.
Magnatag (Macedon, NY) offers the CardView Kanban boards to coordinate inventories and lean workflows. The kits come in five formats: Next-Job, Build-Board, Job-Load, To-Do, and On-Hand. Each comes ready to use in six size capacities, including kanban cards in 17 colors, card printing templates, color pocket tapes, and press-on FlashSpot so customers can tailor the board to their needs.
Matrox Graphics (Montreal, Canada) announces the launch of the M9188 PCIe x16 Octal graphics card, capable of supporting eight DisplayPort or DVI Single-Link outputs from a single workstation. Resolutions up to 2560x1600 per output are supported by 2GB of memory with support for Microsoft Windows XP and Linux.
Kübler by TURCK (Minneapolis, MN) has expanded its draw wire series, designed to work with sensors and encoders with analog outputs, with versions that measure distances ranging from 0.2 to 40 meters. Compatible outputs include 0 to 10 volt, 4 to 20mA, and potentiometers, as well as incremental (push-pull and RS422), absolute (SSI and BISS), and fieldbus interfaces.
Gassonic (Redlands, CA) has developed the first gas leak simulation tool for ultrasonic gas detection, which helps demonstrate the major advantages of implementing ultrasonic detectors for high-pressure gas leaks. The system responds to the distinctive ultrasound created by the leak without having to wait for gas to accumulate (conventional point detector) or within a narrow beam (open path gas detector).
GoatThroat Pumps (New York, NY) announces their SCP-6500 pump, which allows containers holding flammable liquids to be grounded, which makes them safe for use with Class 1 and 2 flammables. All components of the new pump which come in contact with the fluid are created with conductive plastic so that the system remains grounded.
The pop-up transfer conveyors from TKF (Cincinnati, OH) are light-duty units designed to handle loads up to 250 pounds with motorized roller-driven strands, eliminating noisy chain drives. The conveyors also do not use vertical guides or cam ramps for positioning, which simplifies maintenance.
Sullair Corporation (Michigan City, IN) announces the redesign of their 200 HP compressors offered with a choice of constant speed drive models (the LS-200S) or constant speed drive with variable capacity control (the VCC-200S and VCC-250S). The VCC models use Sullair’s spiral valve technology, which allows the compressor to match pressure and capacity with system demand, lowering energy usage.
Pinpoint Laser Systems (Peabody, MA) introduces a new right 90-Line Square Plane, ideal for squaring machinery and equipment, setting up presses, checking machine tools, aligning guide rails, among other uses. The 90-Line Square Plane is designed to be placed in the path of a laser reference beam to form a precise right angle for checking alignment.
Detcon (The Woodlands, TX) has released the Model RXT-300 wireless mesh-network transceiver, designed to transmit signal data in a wide range of industrial applications.
