TUESDAY N PE 2 018 M AY 8 TH NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY The Emerson logo is a trademark and service mark of Emerson Electric Co. © Branson Ultrasonics Corporation 2018. Connect with the Experts at NPE Emerson technology and applications experts in the automotive, medical, electronics, packaging, and industrial markets will be available to meet with attendees at NPE Booth #W3763. Our global team of Emerson market specialists will be on hand to answer questions and explain how Branson material joining technologies are uniquely capable of responding to today's market trends such as miniaturization, more delicate materials, embedded sensors, and complex part geometries. Stop by Booth #W3763 and take advantage of unrivaled expertise in product design, applications engineering, and joining technologies. NPE Booth #W3763 Emerson.com/Branson Tarick W. – Ultrasonic Welding Expert Sophie M. – Expert in Applications Development Trunnion Li[er Slide Cuts Mold Build Time, Cost SelfLube | Booth W3888 Mold and die component manufacturer Self- Lube showcases its trunnion li[er slides, which come in inch and metric and are avail- able with or without self-lubricaঞng graphite. The company says these slides are ideal for mold builders because they reduce build ঞme and cost since they are finished and ready for installaঞon in the tool. The company also of- fers bushings, wear strips, parঞng line locks, and gib assemblies, among other products from its 10,000 standard part numbers. SelfLube which sells directly from a wide-ranging inventory of componets can customize its standard offerings to accommo- date any size or special feature a customer might require. selflube.com | (800) 690-3600 Nitrogen Drying for Specialty Resins Novatec Inc. | Booth W3729 Novatec has taken the wraps off of a new Nitrogen NovaDrier. Developed in response to increased use of polymers with unique properঞes that can be diminished if not han- dled properly during the drying process, the dryer introduces an inert gas or nitrogen to inhibit the oxidaঞve degradaঞon of polymers. Resins that tend to degrade with prolonged exposure to heat in the presence of oxygen include nylons, PBT, PLA, and TPUs. A loss in properঞes due to oxidaঞon occurs more readily in the presence of the heat used in drying. Each polymer has different limits on tem- perature and the amount of degradaঞon that occurs with exposure to heat and oxygen during drying. Typically, the drying tempera- ture can be 10-50° F higher with a nitrogen source in lieu of air, allowing for shorter dry- ing ঞmes. These shortened exposures lead to beer polymer performance in terms of strength, ducঞlity, color/clarity, viscosity, chemical resistance, sঞffness, and stability. Using nitrogen in dryers is not altogether new. This dryer is unique, however, in that it requires no handling of cryogenic nitrogen or boles. There isn't any need to have both the handling and risk of using boled nitrogen. This dryer uses standard plant compressed air as the feedstock, from which it extracts the nitrogen for drying, so only air is released from the dryer unit (in two streams, one oxygen-rich, and one nitrogen-rich). This approach eliminates the hazards involved with venঞng of nitrogen into a closed area. It can be used anywhere without special procedures or handling, Novatec says. novatec.com | (410) 789-4811 Conducঞve Blacks for Automoঞve Body Parts Debut Orion Engineered Carbons LLC | Booth S37015 The newest conducঞve carbon blacks from Orion Engineered Carbons are specifically devel- oped for thermoplasঞcs requiring conducঞvity and anঞ-staঞc properঞes. Specialty Carbon Black XPB 633 Beads are said to be ideally suited for plasঞc automoঞve body parts that require conducঞvity to ensure trouble-free coaঞng. XPB 633 Beads are also deemed appropriate for electronics packaging and for blown film for a range of packaging applicaঞons. These conducঞve addiঞves boast excellent dispersion and reportedly have been shown to improve compound melt flow rates and mechanical properঞes compared to the predecessor grade. orioncarbons.com | (832) 445-3300 53
