Mountz Adds New Features to BF-Series Brushless Electric Torque Screwdrivers

Mountz, Inc. adds new features to the E-DRV BF-Series Brushless Electric Screwdrivers. Listening to the feedback from customers, Mountz adds an adjustable RPM setting directly on the brushless electric screwdrivers as well as a selectable "Soft Start" operating mode. Mountz brushless electric torque screwdrivers are designed for precision torque control and have become the state-of-the-art in the assembly industry.

New Adjustable RPM Setting:

Adding the adjustable speed control provides manufacturers with the versatility to quickly change the tool settings as production projects change. In this recovering economy, manufacturers are looking to save time by improving the efficiency of their production space and methods. Manufacturers are seeking versatile assembly tools that are equipped to handle quick changes in  the production environment. The new adjustable speed control setting for the BF-Series screwdriver allows the operator to adjust the RPM directly on the tool. The selectable RPM settings for the brushless screwdriver are at increments of 50 RPM.

New Soft Start Mode Setting:

The selectable "Soft Start" mode is for applications that require the power tool to slowly ramp-up to its operating speed, perfect for plastic or sensitive applications. There are 3 different time settings for the Soft Start mode, which are (0.2, 0.4 & 0.6 seconds).

Brushless Electric Screwdriver Technology

Designed for high production environments, the E-DRIV BF-Series feature a high performance brushless motor design that provides durability and reduces the standard maintenance costs for electric screwdrivers.  Additionally, costly mechanical micro switches have been eliminated in the BF series in favor of non-contact magnetic sensors.

In addition to lower maintenance costs, the BF electric screwdivers is ESD certified, ensuring less than 1 Ohm at the bit tip.  ESD management in power tools ensures product quality, cost savings and a reduction in overall ESD failures.  Manufacturing engineers involved with microelectronic products are aware of the importance of controlling Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) failures.  Lapses in preventing the occurrence of electrostatic discharge can affect production yields, manufacturing costs, product quality, product reliability, reputation and profitability.

Static damage to electronic components can be realized as catastrophic or latent failures. Catastrophic failures are easier to detect and resolve. With this type of failure the part is "dead" and will not function. It may be costly to repair but is easy to manage. With latent failures the problem is much worse as the failure may not be detected in testing but is a "time bomb" waiting to happen. Since this product will get into the field and cause intermittent problems or failure in the field, it can be a much more costly problem.

Controlling torque is quintessential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners. Using a quality brushless electric screwdriver has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
