ADELAIDE PNEUMATIC takes the challenge from Boar's Rock pty Ltd
The Boar's Rock Challenge
APS were approached by Boar's Rock to come up with a solution to a problem, which was present in 13 crushed fruit hopper installations in their red wine processing unit in S.A.
At the bottom of each hopper was a trapdoor which needed to be opened
in very small increments (mm) to allow wine juice and tailings to
slowly feed the rest of the processing run. If the product ran to
quickly as it did often, it would flood the area with grape juice and
ADELAIDE PNEUMATIC Product Catalogue ....... FREE
150 Megabytes of data, specs and information crammed into one small CD disk and it's FREE.
Adelaide Pneumatic has stuffed pages and pages of useful PDF's into this 8cm disk. It's viewable in any PC computer and runs off disk. Just insert into your CD tray and the disk will auto-run and appear in your web browser. Simple!
This "catalogue on disk" covers all our major suppliers and is a quick reference for many stock items which you need. It's a lot more convenient than a metre high stack of old catalogues buried in the bookshelf. The disk also contains many direct web links to manufacturers product pages, so again, a simple solution to getting more information.
Please click on the email link below and provide us with a contact/business name and mailing address and we will gladly dispatch a disk to you as soon as possible.
Beck will now be known as BeckAir
Beck have announced a name change and will be known as BeckAir
|The Neublade Airstrip from Beckair
Utilises innovative technology developed to give the highest performance, lowest noise and lowest air consumption compared to any other product. The powerful, whisper-quiet blade of air is ideal for drying, cleaning, cooling or containing in all kinds of process, food and manufacturing applications.
Key to it’s performance is our flow straightening technology which provides an exceptionally laminar sheet of air. The low levels of turbulence
also mean extremely low noise (65dB).

NEW DIMENSION IN VACUUM TECHNOLOGY
NOW ONLINE IN cOAX WEBSITE
the next dimension in multistage vacuum technology, from PIAB has been
introduced to the world with the launch of the new COAX® technology
in November 2006, providing an interactive and comprehensive resource
for machine builders. Answering the questions, “what is it?”,
“what’s in it for me?”, and “how can I use it?”, the new COAX®
technology site serves as a valuable resource for those who demand
innovative solutions to meet the design challenges of the future.
Visitors to the COAX® technology site can effortlessly explore its simple, clear design and learn more about the unique vacuum technology from its inventor, Peter Tell.
Interactive, modifiable spreadsheets allow site visitors to compare centralized and decentralized vacuum systems, levels of vacuum flow and pressure drop, and individual COAX® cartridges to determine which solution best fits their design needs. These data tools supply the guidance needed to make a supported decision about integration in specific applications. Fantastic site and well worth the visit, click this link. www.coaxtechnology.com
BluePrint Automation masters Plastic Bag Handling (Netherlands)
The BluePrint Automation Group, operating from the Netherlands and the U.S., focuses on secondary packaging solutions for flexible and other hard-to-handle packages. Today, BluePrint is dedicated to supplying fully integrated, turnkey systems to its customers for applications that involve the loading of these packages into secondary containers. One of the challenges that the company has recently faced has been in finding a reliable solution for picking up plastic bags in some of its packaging applications.
Creative Solutions for tricky material handling applications
The company was interested in developing a solution that could securely grip plastic bags of bread and load them into boxes for shipping. Standard suction cups did not provide a strong grip on the material, resulting in dropped products and machine stoppages. “The handling of plastic bags is a difficult packaging application that we specialise in,” said R.M. Hoveling, R&D manager at BluePrint. "We need to handle flexible material that is constantly shifting and moving.”
Ideal combination seals tightly and grips securely.
BluePrint is now testing a new vacuum solution for the handling of plastic bags with its HVP packaging machine. This solution combines PIAB’s powerful P6010 vacuum pump with Cruise Control (PCC) option and new BL40-3P Polyurethane suction cup made of DURAFLEX®, a strong, durable and elastic material with excellent sealing capability.
Increased energy savings with consistent vacuum levels
The air-saving PCC option automatically maintains a pre-set level of vacuum to ensure a consistent and reliable vacuum level is provided at the suction point. “The mechanical pumps we were using provided us with the high level of flow we needed, but they use a great deal of energy and generate a lot of noise. The new solution will decrease energy consumption and make the operation of the machine considerably quieter.”
Designing for optimisation.
Now a market leader in the handling of plastic bags, BluePrint hopes to continue working with its vacuum partner, PIAB who said, “We were very happy with the results of the installation. It is a very natural partnership, and we hope to continue developing innovative vacuum solutions in the future.”
NEW Vacuum Pump -
PIAB, a global leader in industrial vacuum technology, marks the next generation in vacuum technology with the introduction of its P6010 vacuum pump. Based upon the company’s patented COAX® multi-stage ejector technology, the P6010 provides up to 40% more flow than conventional vacuum pumps, while still reducing overall energy consumption. A durable, maintenance-free, design makes the P6010 ideally suited for automated material handling and other manufacturing processes in the automotive, robotic, graphics and packaging industries.It features powerful, whisper-quiet, and non-heat generating suction at extremely low feed pressures. Additionally, the pump’s compact size makes it possible to mount closer to the point of suction, thus reducing compressed-air requirements and saving energy.
Based upon particular application needs, users can choose from two integrated control options to ensure increased productivity: PIAB Cruise Control (PCC), and Automatic Vacuum Management (AVM™). Both PCC and AVM™ provide vacuum sensing capability and save energy. The PCC offers many advantages for leak-prone materials such as paper and corrugated cardboard, while the AVM™ is ideal for handling non-leaking objects such as sheet metal, plastic or glass.
Specially designed for material handling applications in the packaging and graphics industries, the PCC automatically maintains a pre-set level of vacuum to ensure a consistent and reliable vacuum level is provided at the suction point. PIAB’s PCC feature is reliable during fluctuations in vacuum pressure, caused by product variations or changes in cycle time, because it eliminates the risk of dropping objects. Additionally, because PCC decreases air consumption, it lowers the noise level of the overall vacuum system. Working at an optimized vacuum level also reduces physical wear and tear on machinery components and lowers the need for spare part repairs and overall maintenance costs.
The AVM™ increases efficiency for manufacturers in the automotive and robotics industries because it stops the air flow when the set vacuum level is achieved, saving energy while still maintaining the suction. Featuring a high-capacity blow-off function to balance vacuum pressure and reduce cycle time, the AVM™ reduces up to 90% of the air consumption in comparison to continuously operating systems.
Both the PCC and the AVM™ are offered as complete packages, with valves and vacuum switches. This allows the options to be connected without further controls or monitoring equipment, reducing system design time for manufacturers.
