Controller Adjusts for Joint Designs and Part Variations

Stanley Assembly Technologies’ Kappa controller is designed to optimize direct current electric threaded fastening for error proofing. The controller measures torque and compares it to quality limits. Its features include a data display with softkey navigation and embedded toolbox software, which runs on a web browser and enables analysis of tightening results fed directly from the controller.

The Kappa automatically adjusts for different joint designs and part variations during each tightening cycle. It counts fastened bolts while detecting cross threads, rehits and slip-offs.

Chrome Core 13-XP Extends Component Shelf Life

Carpenter Technology has introduced Chrome Core 13-XP, a ferritic 13% chromium alloy developed for use in fuel injection components and other electro-
mechanical devices in which corrosion resistance must be better than that of pure iron, low carbon steel and silicon iron alloys.

Applications for Chrome Core 13-XP include components requiring some degree of corrosion resistance, either in service or for extending shelf life, without the need of protective coatings. Chrome Core 13-XP also can be considered for applications requiring a ferritic stainless steel with improved corrosion resistance.

Thrust Bearings Feature Steel Balls and Washers

Torque Transmission has announced a line of micro thrust bearings available in carbon and stainless steel. The thrust bearings are designed to incorporate the combination of molded nylon retainer with hardened grade steel balls and washers.

The self-lubricating property of nylon, combined with the hardened steel, helps to reduce friction between the balls. The microfinish thrust wafers reduce noise and increase durability. Hardened steel balls are grade 100 tolerance and a 10 micro finish.
