Patent for an optical centering and aligning system

 

The optical centering and aligning system for fully automatic notching lines, is used for production of electric laminations for energy industry e.g. generators for wind and water power plants or railway drives for ICE.

 

The requirements to the process of this optical system regarding accuracy are 10 times higher than for an optical centering station of a FOL system at a XL servo tandem line, which is state of the art for the automotive industry. 

 

Because of the optical centering and aligning system in fully automatic notching lines, customers still have tremendous economic benefits. Product costs decreased and profit increased considerably and sustainable.

 

 

Innovative punching and embossing die for windpower plant project

 

For one of the biggest Chinese energy technology manufacturer in Shanghai, Axel Fuchs has developed a unique punching and embossing die for segment laminations for wind- and waterpower plants. Punch and die are turning synchronously between every stroke of the machine.

This solution increased the OEE and reduced production down times to zero.

Again the customer could achieve a significant increase of profit at reduced product costs and with better product quality.

 

 

New concept for the Transrapid Project in China

 

Project with Thyssen-Krupp consortium:

Axel Fuchs developed a totally new manufacturing concept to produce complete long stator lamination packages incl. fully automatic spacer assembly and stacking in lattice boxes.

 

This solution meant a significant increase of the production output compared to the existing blanking equipment at Kienle & Spieß company. The system would have reached the required performance and the necessary quality, to fulfill the tough timeline and to keep the budget.

 

The electric lamination packages should be plugged in to the Transrapid line planned in China 2002 between Beijing and Shanghai at a distance of 1.300 km. The concept was selected and distinguished from the consortium to be implemented in case of order from China. Unfortunately the Chinese Government never realised the scheduled Transrapid line, based on the political siuation at that time.

 

 

Hyperloop Pod competition of SpaceX- and Tesla founder Elon Musk

 

The production system maybe could get back, if the High-speed train "Hyperloop" will be realized in the coming years in the US and some other mega cities around the globe. It is planned to implement a Hyperloop train for the EXPO in 2020 in ABU DHABI (UAE). The current status is:

 

In 2017 a team of students from the TUM in Munic/Germany won a competition in California at a test-run, against other 26 top universities like MIT from the US, with their concept for a hyperloop train pod. They used the proven Transrapid magnetic drive technology together with an Alpha jet engine.

We will have an eye on what will happen in that matter at EXPO 2020 in UAE.

 

 

Unloading and stacking systems for blanking lines

 

Axel Fuchs was first in implementing linear motors to drive a high-tech unloading system of a blanking line for electric laminations. Thus the production output and flexibility of this kind of equipment were increased to so far unknown dimensions. According to the requirements of the market, Axel Fuchs developed a cost optimized unloading and stacking system for blanking lines, too.
