HEGENSCHEIDT MFD: Increase of fatigue strength by deep rolling of large crankshafts up to 200%

Two in one – Incre­a­sing fati­gue strength and redu­cing TIR  of large cranks­hafts in one machine The rede­sign of the Deep Rol­ling and Roll Strai­gh­tening machine 7625 is now com­ple­ted and maxi­mum cranks­haft length up to 6000mm are now pos­si­ble. Take advan­tage of an effi­ci­ent, simple and eco­no­mi­cal tech­no­logy that has been estab­lis­hed in the auto­mo­tive car sec­tor for many years. Deep Rol­ling of main and pin bea­ring fil­lets incre­a­ses the fati­gue strength of cranks­hafts up to 200% and impro­ves sur­face hard­ness and rough­ness of the fil­let radii. Deep Rolling…

HEGENSCHEIDT MFD: Longer lifetime for bearing rings due hard rolling

News from our sis­ter HEGENSCHEIDT from Erkel­enz Rol­ler bea­rings guide shafts and axles, for example in vehi­cles, indus­trial plants or medi­cal tech­no­logy app­li­ca­ti­ons. Usually such bea­rings run per­ma­nently under high loads. Mate­rial fati­gue and lub­ri­ca­tion defect are the­re­fore the main cau­ses of com­po­nent fail­ure. High per­for­mance rol­ler bea­rings can be manu­fac­tu­red with cer­a­mic ele­ments com­bi­ned with bea­ring steel. For the pro­duc­tion of bea­ring rings, the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Pro­duc­tion Tech­no­logy IPT Aachen suc­cess­fully tes­ted hard rol­ling as a resource-saving alter­na­tive to exten­ding the con­ven­tio­nal pro­cess chain tog­e­ther with three project…

With trust and transparency to safe machines

etz – Elek­tro­tech­nik & Auto­ma­tion repor­ted on the safety of our machi­nes. You can read the whole arti­cle below. Niles-Sim­mons MC series CNC turn-mill machi­ning cen­ters enable eco­no­mi­cal, fle­xi­ble, pre­cise, and user-friendly com­plete machi­ning of large, rota­tio­nally sym­metri­cal work­pie­ces in one clam­ping. For the N20 MC, N30 MC, and N40 MC machi­ning cen­ters, the risk assess­ment, veri­fi­ca­tion, and docu­men­ta­tion has recently been revi­sed with the sup­port of Wie­land Electric’s safety experts. Machine safety is a mat­ter of trust in two respects. On the one hand, the ope­ra­tor trusts in the…

Complete manufacturing of complex components: NILES-SIMMONS machine concept „CLOSED-DOOR-MACHINING“

NILES-SIMMONS deve­lo­ped the machi­ning con­cept “CLOSED-DOOR-MACHINING to meet the ever-incre­a­sing requi­re­ments con­cer­ning the manu­fac­tu­ring of com­plex, high-pre­cision parts and com­pon­ents initi­ally for the avia­tion indus­try. This con­cept allows the com­plete machi­ning of parts in one con­ti­nuous pro­cess wit­hin one machine and without any ope­ra­tor inter­ven­ti­ons. It is app­li­ca­ble for various part types which, his­to­ri­cally, had to be manu­fac­tu­red in several pro­cess steps on various dif­fe­rent machines.

After Corona: Chinese factory able to produce again

While we are at the begin­ning to take mea­su­res in Ger­many to con­tain the corona virus, China is already on the road to reco­very.

In 4 ple­nary lec­tures and 48 pre­sen­ta­ti­ons in the con­fe­rence sec­tions »Wheel/Rail«, »Pro­ject Plan­ning, Cal­cu­la­tion and Design of Rail Vehi­cles« and »Manu­fac­tu­ring, Main­ten­ance and Cost Assess­ment of Rail Vehi­cles« were pre­sen­ted cur­rent fin­dings and were dis­cus­sed it with the con­fe­rence par­ti­ci­pants. The con­fe­rence was con­duc­ted by our HEGENSCHEIDT col­leagues from Erkel­enz, who pro­vi­ded infor­ma­tion on the sub­ject of »Deep rol­ling and roll strai­gh­tening of wheel treads of rail vehi­cles« in the con­text of…
