Sunnen -- a leader in the manufacturing of bore sizing and finishing equipment, engine rebuilding equipment and tooling -- came to Ambrell with a set of magnetic steel assemblies. They were looking to replace two old induction units from two different companies that were likely unrepairable if they went down. Heating time wasn't an issue for them, but they basically operate as a job shop, so they heat parts of different sizes and geometries.

A supplier to an engine manufacturer needed to heat magnetic steel inserts for a metal-to-plastic insertion application. The parts needed to heat to 500 °F (260 °C) within five seconds prior to being placed into an injection mold. Due to it taking the robot a few seconds to place the parts in the mold, it was also important that it maintain the temperature for a few seconds after heating concluded.

On May 22nd, Ambrell participated in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in downtown Rochester. It is a 3.5 mile (5.6 km) race that takes place in 13 cities in seven countries on five continents. Participants range from serious runners to casual walkers. The very top finishers (which, no, we didn't have anyone running the course in 20 minutes) qualify for the championship in Boston. Most importantly, this race raises money for a local charity in each city. In the case of the Rochester race the Veteran's Outreach Center benefitted. Nearly 9,000 ran/walked the race this year in Rochester.

With summer almost upon us, the spring trade show season is coming to a close.

OTC was a good show for us, as the energy industry is rebounding a bit and we received some good quality leads. The Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Expo didn't match up to the U.S. version we attended in Novi, MI last year, but it was important for us to check the show out and assess it.

Tobacco Manufacturer Uses an EASYHEAT for a Branding Application

May 24, 2018 2:45:00 PM / by Scott Miller posted in Sales, Success Stories
