BRECKSVILLE, Ohio--Hyson Products, a business of Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), is partnering with Komatsu to introduce Hyson's new Servo Press Cushion to the manufacturing industry. The introduction will be made at FabTech - North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event, on November 12th to November 14th, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Hyson will join Komatsu in booth C1239 where the new Hyson Servo Press Cushion will be showcased in the Komatsu servo press being demonstrated at the show. The combination of the Komatsu servo press' ability to control position and speed at any point in the stroke, and the Hyson Servo Press Cushion's ability to control force at any point in the stroke, allows the user complete control over the forming/stamping process.

"We are excited about introducing our press solutions that deliver improvements in productivity and quality to new markets"

In addition to the Hyson Servo Press Cushion, the Komatsu press will also feature two Hyson knockout systems which offer precision force control and auto compensation for quick die change (QDC). Hyson staff will be on hand to answer questions about these and other press solutions.

Komatsu is a leader in servo press technology. Its servo presses are in use across a wide range of applications. "We are excited about introducing our press solutions that deliver improvements in productivity and quality to new markets," said Hank J. Kelm, Hyson's Division Manager.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
