Stäubli Fluid Connectors Keep Electronics Cool at SC19

More powerful components and greater density create increased demand for compact, efficient solutions to liquid cool electronics

Duncan, S.C. (Nov. 1, 2019) - Stäubli's non-spill, quick-release couplings have become an essential element in the liquid cooling of electronics. The company will showcase how its compact solutions are improving efficiency across the industry at the SC19 supercomputing conference in Denver, Nov.18-21.

Stäubli (booth #1936) - a leader in providing thermal cooling solutions for high-performance computing and data center storage - will showcase a variety of different scenarios to demonstrate how the absolute tightness of its connectors creates a sealed environment to ensure the safety and reliability of electronics and IT systems.

"With the increased demand for higher-performing electronic devices, liquid cooling is becoming even more important to dissipate heat from electronic devices because of the numerous benefits it offers over other cooling methods," said Phil Briggs, Fluid Connectors Division Manager, Stäubli North America. "The compact design of Stäubli fluid connectors maximizes efficiency in increasingly tighter environments."

The company will display locking or hand mate connectors that can be placed outside of the electronic array or added to existing equipment to convert an air-cooled system into a liquid cooled system. Fluid connectors enable the liquid line to be disconnected for a variety of reasons, including changing the electronic equipment for upgrade or maintenance, swapping the active components from the static structure, or building and connecting sub-assemblies.

Stäubli CGD quick couplings are dedicated to the cooling of electronics and thermoregulation and feature a non-spill, flush-face technology that guarantees a perfect seal during use and connection/disconnection phase. Equipped with valves that prevent fluid from leaking when disconnecting and air from getting into the line when mating, these connectors feature a self-alignment technology that allows "blind" coupling and compensates for misalignments up to 1 mm between axes.

The company has been a leader liquid cooling for more than 25 years, combining performance, safety and durability with a variety of seal types, coupling materials and design options, which makes them compatible with a wide range of coolants and temperatures.

SC19 is the world's largest marketplace for high-performance computing and networking professionals, bringing together scientists, engineers, software developers, policy makers, corporate managers, CIOs, and IT administrators from universities, industry and government agencies worldwide.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
