Aiming at further reducing production and delivery times, Tau Industrial Robotics is glad to announce that its new mechanical production facility opened this week in Italy. With a CNC 3 axis mill, hand operated turning machine and support tools for engraving, cutting and metal bending, Tau Industrial Robotics is now able to vertically produce the most sensitive mechanical parts of its products, guaranteeing to all of its customers superior quality and timely delivery.
ADIR consortium reached today a critical milestone of the Urban Mining joint research project. While technical details remain confidential, it is now confirmed that one of the most critical technical challenges of the project, e-waste selective disassembly from PCB boards, was carried out successfully. Tau Industrial Robotics is fully committed in ADIR, working with all partners to reshape the electronics waste industry with a tenfold increase in precious elements recovery efficiency.
Tau Industrial Robotics updated its products specifications for ThermoTouch, and is now glad to announce that its thermal testing solution can be ordered with an extended temperature range option. This increased thermal capability brings the systems operating temperatures down to -40°C and +150°C, making ThermoTouch compliant with automotive testing standards.
Tau Industrial Robotics finalized a deal, the exact details of which are undislosed, with a leading Russian producer of insulated copper wire for the integration of Tau's coating technology in the near future. The project will see both companies interact to develop jointly new insulated products (wires and cables) insulated with Tau revolutionary DryCycle technology. More details are available in the restricted area of the website.
Severstal, the Russian steel giant company, started this month the production of enamelled steel wire using DryCycle technology. Integrating Tau Industrial Robotics technology, Severstal became the first lacquered steel wire producer in Russia, and is now aiming at becoming a dominant player in the domestic market. Tau and Severstal are currently discussing the terms for a joint development partnership focused on new products and exporting coated wire to Europe and Asia. The flexibility of DryCycle technology makes it applicable to a wide range of products (from staples to springs, fencing, gabions), and is an ideal tool to integrate and add value to Severstal large selection of wire products.
Tau Industrial Robotics delivered today the first NIRWiM unit to Elantas (Altana group), in a joint development effort aimed at optimizing the quality monitoring process of enamels right after the production phase.
With a NIRWiM system installed on the primary insulation enamel testing lines, Elantas is now able to get real/time feedback on the polymerization response of its enamels.
The implementation of NIRWiM system in Ascoli plant, the largest of its kind in Europe, is part of a joint development effort carried on by both companies aimed at improving quality verification methods on the entire spectrum of insulating polymers.
Superior Essex, a leading North American and European producer of enamelled copper wire, received in December 2016 two NIRWiM systems for real-time quality control of its production. The two systems were installed in Fort Wayne, US, and Bad Arolsen, Germany. Tau Industrial Robotics specialists worked together with the quality offices in both plants to ensure a smooth integration of NIRWiM systems on the production floor. Both systems were successfully commissioned in less than a week, including training of operators that will use them 24/7.
Meeting the most demanding thermal testing requirements in the industry is a constant challenge for Tau Industrial Robotics engineers. In the latest ThermoLab implementation, the system was adapted to contrast thermal drift induced by radiation, and was able to compensate perfectly the signal noise generated by a black body device. Because of its unmatched flexibility and stability even in the most extreme applications, ThermoLab is the preferred choice for laboratory thermal testing of sensors of any shape and size.
