IMTS 2014 - Nilfisk Presents New Products and Maintenance Solutions at IMTS 2014

International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), September 8-13 at McCormick Place

Morgantown, Pa. - Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums will present new products and solutions for metalworking facilities at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), September 8-13 at McCormick Place (Booth E-5825) in Chicago. Set to debut at the show, the new Nilfisk CFM VHO200 sump pump vacuum, which collects, recycles, separates and discharges gallons of chips, cuttings, lubricants and other liquids in just minutes.


The VHO 200 is the newest addition to its current line of single- and three-phase machine shop oil vacuum cleaners. The VHO200 is ideal for metalworking processes that benefit from the time-savings and cost reduction associated with quickly recycling metalworking chips and liquids.

Nilfisk offers a complete line of industrial vacuums designed for the metal market that include special features like removable collection bins for simple waste disposal, compatibility with large-capacity separators and hoppers for bulk collection, and special filtration pads and coalescing filters to prevent the recirculation of harmful oil mist.

Additional product showcases include industrial vacuum cleaners for general facility cleaning, powder coating operations and continuous-duty applications, and explosion-proof/dust ignition-proof models for the collection of combustible metal dusts to increase compliance with industry regulations.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
