Tempering control filter Z7700

The temperature control filter Z7700 is a special oil- and water filter designed for small cooling holes or core coolings.

Due to its fine filter insert it removes finest dirt particles from the cooling circuit which can otherwise lead to clogged cooling channels (for example in laser-sintered core inserts) or to early wear of sealing elements in core coolings.

Security features gas springs

For user security, STRACK NORMA developed security features for all gas springs

The features installed in the springs are safety-relevant protective devices which are venting the gas springs in case of too fast extension of the piston rod (shock relief), in case of overstroke and overpressure and thus providing a protection against injuries to the user, but also prevent a possible tool breakage.
On the gas-spring body is marked by laser which security features are included in the gas springs. In this context, the gas spring catalogues were updated and supplemented with new type series.

Simply remove punching waste

The pneumatic part conveyor of STRACK NORMA offers the optimal solution

Space is rare and precious – in particular under a punching tool. The punching waste must be removed as quickly as possible in confined space, but what is the best solution?

Smallest standard cam with maximum power

The new PowerMax® 2.0 from the company STRACK NORMA

The change in the toolmaking is characterized by pressure on costs, savings and innovations for the steady improvement of an efficient production process. Narrow space conditions and fewer and fewer tool stages are the requirements for the designers of today. In future, tools must become even more compact and smaller to meet the requirements of a small installation space.

In this context savings in time and in resulting costs play an important role. Meanwhile more and more working steps are made in one stroke, to be able to save one, respectively more stages. Here no losses with respect to running properties and press force should be made.

The standard part specialist STRACK NORMA from Lüdenscheid has heard the call of the designers and faced this challenge.
The result is the cam of the latest generation: The new PowerMax® 2.0.

All latch locks with DLC-coated components

All latch locks of the standard part specialist STRACK NORMA will be provided with a DLC-coating at sliding components to meet highest requirements in the injection moulding technology. Herewith the proven latch locks are able to ensure even higher running performances and to ensure a trouble-free manufacturing process.
The DLC-layer (Diamond-Like-Carbon) is a diamond-like-carbon layer. It is applied on moving components, which are for example running unlubricated or to extend the maintenance intervals. DLC is the successor of WCC-coatings, because the coating is harder and thus more durable.
In addition DLC-coating characterizes by low friction coefficients and good wear properties.
By using DCL-coated components and the resulting freedom from maintenance an up to 80 % reduction of the maintenance costs can be achieved.
At first view, the new DLC-coating cannot be seen, because the pawls as well as the locks are coated with the layer. Thus a maximum benefit is achieved and friction and wear are minimized.

Stäubli and STRACK cooperate

Since April STRACK has been direct sales partner of Stäubli Tec-Systems GmbH from Bayreuth. The well-known company is one of the leading manufacturers of quick coupling systems for liquids, gases and electrical energy in the world.

STRACK will distribute the Mono-, Multi- and Quick coupling systems together with further items from the wide product range for the stamping and forming technology and for injection

moulding and die casting tools.

Due to the unique competence in the coupling technology, Stäubli can offer a qualified and fast service in collaboration with STRACK. The service doesn’t only focuses on the groundbreaking connection technology but also on the complete product range. Other sectors of Stäubli GmbH are the production of textile machinery and robotics (SCARA- and articulated-arm industrial robots).

Flat guide strips

We welcome the new family member Z3850 warmly in the range of the guiding elements.

The new series of guide brackets can be used in the punching- and forming sector and in CFK-tools. It provides for the centering of the upper- and lower tool part as well as for the centering of the single mould halves.

Here instead of the proven graphite plugs, the sliding surface is at three sides made out of sintered metal to obtain improved sliding properties and a greater sliding surface.

Guide strips

A further member in the family of the guiding elements is the guide strip Z4252. This strip is used as hardened counterpart to the guide bracket Z3850 and has to be adapted to the optimal guide clearance. The DCL-coated sliding surface results in an improved sliding property.

Centring elements (Replacement for centring elements Z50-...)

The upper part of the centering unit is now coated with DLC. The DLC coat (Diamond Like Carbon) is a carbon layer similar to a diamond and is applied to the movable components, which for example run unlubriated or to extend the maintenance intervals.

DLC is the successor of WCC-coatings, because it is harder and thus has a longer life. Moreover the DLC layers characterize by low friction coefficients and good wear properties.

SNS sintered metal sliding elements

To accommodate the high requirements at modern tools with regard to the strain by the machining of high strength sheets with an, at the same time, increasing of the running life and maintainability, a new sintered bronze material has been developed.

The new generation of sliding elements is steel reinforced, iron based, porous sintered metal.

It features itself by its high wear resistance at medium, till high speeds.

The sintered metal is placed on a steel base body, which gives the sliding element a higher solidity.
