New Products: Alignment Prints and Coreboxes

Nov. 1, 2006
Also, Chemical-resistant gloves, flexible hoses, and more

Alignment Prints and Coreboxes
ADOLF’S PATTERN SHOP is offering two of the most requested sizes of alignment cores (2.55 in. and 3.57 in.), used in greensand and air-set moldings. They are reversible and fit perfectly into each print on both the cope and drag sides. The alignment prints have an extra 1/8 in. height to serve as a sand trap on the outside wall at the parting. The alignment core prints are made of A.B.S. plastic and have specially-designed two-cavity corebox.

High-Temperature Glass Sealant
AREMCO-Seal 617 is used to produce hermetic seals in porous ceramics and refractories for applicaitons up to 1,450°F. It is a single part, water-based, glass coating used in electrical and high-vacuum applications. Easily applied by dipping, brushing, or spraying, and it cleans up with warm water prior to curing. Curing takes place at room temperature for 30 minutes, then heating at 1,600°F for another 30 minutes.

Protective Hood
AOSAFETY’s new QuickFit protective hood is an oversized design made of Tyvek, covering the head and shoulders of the wearer with a properly-sized opening to permit visibility through its window and breathablility for attached cartridges and filters.

IR Thermometers
FALCON TOOLS’ LazerTemp industrial temperature measurement tools are the smallest available, palm-sized for easy grip. With laser-sight identification for accurate readings, they offer a temperature range from -76° to 1,400°F.

Slicer Wheels
METABO CORP.’s Super Slicer cutting wheel lasts up to 50% longer without suffering degradation to the cutting speed. The newly improved Slicer Wheel provides maximum performance when cutting extremely hard and heavy gauge metals, high-tensile alloys, and Hastelloy. Available in 4.57/8 and 67/8 in.

Pocket Thermometers
WAHL INSTRUMENTS three new hand-held thermometers — thermocouple TM602, RTD TM612, and T/C and RD TM630 — measure up to 0.02% accuracy and at a very low temperature coefficient of 15 ppm/°C, 14 different thermocouple outputs, and 12 different RTD types with a temperature coefficient of 10 ppm/°C. All models feature a graphical LCD with adjustable contrast and backlight for easier programming and reading.

Flexible Borescopes
GRADIENT LENS CORP.’s Hawkeye Pro Flexible Borescopes provide highly detailed images of surface-finish irregularities, sand, voids, and other defects that can seriously affect the quality of products like engine blocks and turbochargers, exhaust manifolds and more. Its high-resolution optical-glass imaging fibers produce high-quality images, giving the score flexibility to reach into twisting, narrow paths.

Chemical-Resistant Gloves
ANSELL’s AlphaTEC gloves are made with “grip technology,” a liquid-proof product requiring less force to grip oily or wet objects. The gloves integrate microscopic channels in a patented ultra-thin nitrile layer to direct fluids away from the grip surface, leaving a significant dry contact area.

Ergonomic Vacuum Lifter Frames & Cups
ANVER CORP.’s VM-Series vacuumlLifter is a hoist-integraed, ergonomic lifting system that operates on compressed air and lets one person safely handle heavy parts weighing up to 550 lbs. The fully adjustable frames and vacuum suction cup assemblies can easily adapt to fit similar-sized parts with different surface areas. The VM-Series can lift and hold in place, without drift, for assembly and packaging operations.

Multiple-Use Earplugs
HOWARD LEIGHT AirSoft multiple-use earplugs offer the safety industry’s highest noise reduction rating (NRR 27), with a new design for easier insertion, for a better, more comfortable fit. The new design incorporates a series of patented, noise-blocking fins within the pocket, interweaving to create a barrier optimized to the wearer’s ear canal.

High-Strength Alumina Composite
ZIRCAR REFRACTORY COMPOSITES’ refractory sheet type RS-99 is a medium-density fiber reinforced ceramic composite material, with greater than 99% alumina purity. It exhibits excellent hot strength and creep resistance, and is useful to temperatures up to 3,002°F. It resists the flow of hydrogen or other hot gases through its thickness, ideal for vacuum, reducing atmospheres, and other applications where silica cannot be tolerated. It may be cut and machined with standard tooling for fast prototyping or small piece requirements.

Spherical Plain Bearings
SKF’s spherical plain bearings provide ready-to-mount solutions for a wide range of industrial equipment applications. These self-aligning bearings can simultaneously accomodate misalignment and oscillating movements while delivering optimized performance in cranes, conveyors, forklifts, hydraulic cylinders, mobile construction, industrial robots, mineral-processing equipment, and packaging equipment. They feature an inner ring with a spherical, convex outside diameter and an outer ring with a similarly sphered, but concave, inside surface.

Portable Gas Protectors
CROWCON’s Gasman single gas detectors are immune to interference from high-radio frequencies, are small in size and weight, and are easy to use. Available for flammable, oxygen, and toxic gases, they are extremely durable with high impact resistance and ingress protection to IP67. Hazardous gases are detected with a loud 95 dBA alarm, and an bright red/blue visual warning that vibrates. It also features a large numerical display and backlit LCD panel.

Flexible Hoses
EXAIR’s Flexible Stay Set Hoses are ideal for applications where frequent repositioning of air nozzles is required. At the end of each production run, companies can quickly and easily move their air nozzles to a new position that closely matches the profile of the next part. When mounted in close proximity to the application, the hoses can be bent to aim the airstream at the target surface to be cleaned, dried, or cooled. The hose has memory and will not creep or bend. It stays in the same position until it is physically moved by the operator. They are constructed of reinforced synthetic rubber to assure long life and protection against ozone, weathering, and temperatures up to 158°F.

Coolant Filter System
EBBCO’s Sludge Master coolant filter system is designed to extend coolant life by preventing the accumulation of contaminants anywhere in the system. Models range from flush rates of 20-250 gpm of clean coolant provided to the machine and combine the circulation, filtration, and evacuation process into a continuous coolant management system with few moving parts. The system features a media-free filtration. Solids are collected automatically in a 55-gal. drum or hopper, or optional bag filter.

CNC Spin Machine
MJC ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY’s SP-7360 CNC spin machine features a teach-in joystick and the company’s advanced SpinCAD CNC programming software. It has a 72-ft swing, 60-HP spindle, and a four-station automatic turret designed to handle multiple spinning and machining operations. The software can develop a spin program, save it, and edit it for future use without reteaching the part.

Pan and Tray Trucks
DURHAM MANUFACTURING CO.’s pan and tray trucks are offered in nine different models, ideal for assembly areas, movement of batch work from department to department, and in situations where work pieces need to cool or dry. They feature all-welded steel construction using 11/8 inch angle iron and the solid removable work-bearing trays can be set on 2, 4, or 6 inch spacing. Offered in 24, 30, or 36 in. depths and rated at 1,200 lb. capacity.

Blast Cabinet for Seated Operation
GUYSON CORP.’s compact blasting cabinet SBP-40 is designed for convenient use by a seated operator. The compact cabinet-blast system has footswitch-operated blast and blow-off nozzles mounted on a multi-adjustable bracket to free the user’s hands for component handling. A large view window and adjustable flood lighting offer good visibility for detailed blasting work on small components.
