There are applications supported by IGM Robotersysteme in every area of the welding and cutting industry. The IGM reputation as a specialist for large-scale projects is based on a steady stream of major contracts from the heavy engineering industry since the 1980s. Indeed, the floor track systems of up to 100m in length are designed to cater for the special requirements of this industry. Components with larger than standard dimensions such as those found in bridge construction and ship building for example, are manufactured using portal welding units capable of taking components of up to 25m in width and 8m in height. The robotic systems are utilized for manufacturing excavators, railway wagons and locomotives, for boiler making, the construction of gantry cranes, bridge construction and ship building.www.igm-group.com

Improved shot blasting performance by new turbine technology. The advantages of the high performance turbines include rapid assembly with no special tools required, less wear parts, and high performance shot blasting due to the high abrasive throughput. For special applications (e.g. shot peening) the high performance turbines are also designed as rotatable turbines. The top centre image below shows a rotatable turbine in a satellite turntable shot blasting machine.

& Machine Elements
Böhler Miller Messer und Sägen GmbH was taken over by the German machine knife manufacturer IKS Klingelnberg GmbH with TKM being the parent company 13 years ago. The company has now decided to underline its group membership, as well as its core competences by changing to a new company name. The Böhler Miller Messer und Sägen GmbH is renamed to TKM Austria and produces industrial knives and machine elements for the paper, wood, metal, plastics, rubber and recycling industry to most stringent requirements and standards.www.tkmgroup.com

This is a high performance belt grinding machine, where the plate is clamped electromechanically on a supporting table. The grinding unit moves on a rail system and the bevel is ground in one or more passes on the upper side of the plate. The bevel angle is stepless adjustable. A special table unit can be used for working on bigger plates.

Straightening with induction heating
The thermal straightening of welded plate constructions has been a key area of EFD Induction activity since the early 1980s. Our deck and bulkhead straightening solutions are found in the ship- building industry (deck straightening), construction industry (straightening of bridges) and trains/trucks industry (production and repair of locomotives, rolling stock and Heavy Goods Vehicles). Using induction for straightening means that you get the right heat, exactly where you want it. When repairing a steel chassis on a truck, for example, there’s no need to dismount heat-sensitive components such as brakes and cables. Induction also makes life easier for staff and the environment. No gas flame to emit dangerous fumes. No flame to burn the skin. And, induction heating is easy to learn and safe to use.

EFD Induction offers brazing in various important fields such as the automotive, aviation, electrotechnical and white goods industries. It includes brazing of aluminum, brass, copper, copper alloys, iron and cast iron, steel and stainless steel. There are many reasons why using induction heating instead of gas for brazing is clearly beneficial. Induction transfers more energy per square meter than an open flame, resulting in faster heating cycles. Put simply, you produce more components per hour. The heat is also easy to check and adjust. You reduce the risk of overheating, which can lead to higher porosity and weaker joints. What’s more, you reduce the risk of cold brazing as induction generates the heat in the base material. Just as important, induction heating improves the working environment and safety. No gas needed, no open flame, no additional heating.
These machines are used for cutting hot and cold steel.
On the basis of thermal cutting processes, Protube offers a number of machines and plants for steel mills and rolling mills to be used in continuous casting plants, in finishing lines, for scrap preparation, as well as in round deburring machines for deburring of billets. Specifically designed and highly efficient carbide cold circular saws for dry sawing, ensure almost burr-free and rectangular cuts. The range of products includes billet sawing machines, sample cutting machines, tube layer sawing machines, rail sawing and drilling machines. Cutting efficiencies and long tool lives are achieved by means of optimum vibration damping during sawing.
