Also increased environmental demand innovations. Requiring forces to reducing carbon dioxide emissions to save weight”the automaker, continued Adler. For the mechatronic components, this means that the heavy copper must be substituted by light metal or metallized plastics. For this purpose were examined in the course of a BMBF joint venture of the companies Tyco, contact layers using vapor deposition (PVD) electrically conductive Harting, multi-test and KME for the first time. Further attempts to improve the reproducibility of the results are but necessary. High-resolution computed tomography as a tool in the error analysis is that a typical drawback of connectivity that housing, insulation materials “and shed parts of contacts from outside quality control” greatly complicate or make impossible. When these requirements has clear advantages”high-resolution computed tomography, explains Frank Sieker of in Wunstorf-based GE sensing & inspection technologies GmbH.
Without touching the component, the process deliver simultaneously fast and accurate information about the external and internal structure of even the most complex components. In contrast to mechanical sanding, which allow only the views in a single cutting plane and destroy the object here, hundred cuts in any direction can be produced with the help of computer tomography with a mouse click. The advantages of this procedure are convincing. It can be faster than ever deviations from the norm”, explains Frank. This could promptly optimize production processes. Dr. Jurgen Nehler reported on an innovative plug connector solution for all fibre optic networks of the Euromicron Werkzeuge GmbH in Mittenaar. The company specialized in optical fiber (optical fiber) connectivity has developed with the EM-RJ optical connector series for the LAN area and use in industrial applications a very space-saving new generation.
Company according to innovation opens up new market opportunities fiber optic connectors, because it saves the network installation of clear space and provides for more clarity. Drum check who forever binds. This also applies to connection technology. In this context, the question arises according to the reliability of optical connectors. “Only drawback: there are still no accepted models of reliability”, grants Aleksandar Opacic by the Huber + Suhner AG, Herisau (Switzerland). Therefore solutions should be proposed, cause a rough statement of reliability in a roundabout way. On the basis of standardized types examined reliability statements in terms of plausibility and consistency with the known failure mechanisms. Rolf Fawaz
