Increasing Awareness of IFPS Membership and Certification BY JEFFREY MORROW, IFPS Business Development Manager

Marketing and sales has always been at the center of my career. Speaking with prospects, learning of their needs, and presenting solutions based on those needs, is what drives me every day. When I joined the IFPS last July, I knew that one of my main goals was to increase the overall awareness of our organization and what it has to offer. Last year, I attended a few trade shows/expos to introduce IFPS to attendees. It was a great experience to speak with a wide range of people about fluid power. I will be on the road again very soon, so if you see me at our booth, please stop by and say hello. Another one of my goals is to strengthen our connection with our customers. I have been communicating with several of our existing clients to uncover the value that the IFPS certification holds for them. These discussions have been eye opening for me. Every person who has spoken with me has had a unique story. If you are certified and would like to share your story, please contact me. I had the pleasure of attending the IFPS biannual Board of Directors meeting in September. It was awesome to be in a room where everyone was so passionate about the fluid power industry and supportive of our organization. It is that support that will help us continue to move forward. All IFPS members can play an important role in our growth and continued success. One way to support IFPS is by displaying your membership, certification, and/or fluid power acronym on your personal LinkedIn profile, business card, email signature, etc. As many of you well know, obtaining an IFPS certification is no simple task; let your pride show—be boastful! You can also encourage colleagues to become members and to consider getting certified. In addition, if you know of anyone that may benefit from certification, please let me know. I would be happy to assist in getting appropriate brochures of materials to good candidates. As a newcomer to the fluid power industry, I am excited to continue learning. I have met some extremely genuine people. Donna Pollander, our executive director, is a wealth of knowledge and has been a great resource for me. The entire IFPS staff has been very kind and generous. I feel fortunate to be a part of such an impressive company in an exciting industry. Is there any way that I can help your organization? Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you, or perhaps even meeting you at an expo! Jeffrey Morrow can be reached at 856-874-7256 or at jmorrow@ifps.org.

PREVIOUS TEASER Why doesn't the adjustable flow control regulate the speed to open a door equipped with an automatic door closer? What is the easiest fix? The original door closer works just fine to close the door. The cylinder retracts to open the door. The TD (Time Delay) is an off delay.

Solution 1. The metered-out circuit does not work properly because there is only atmospheric pressure in the cap end of the cylinder. For a meter out circuit to work, you need compressed air to restrict. 2. Easiest fix is to meter-in the air at the rod end of the cylinder.

ECONOMIC REPORT

Global Manufacturing Update BY CHAD MOUTRAY, Ph.D., CBE, Chief Economist, National Association of Manufacturers

February 2016 – U.S.-manufactured goods exports declined 6.1% in 2015, according to seasonally adjusted data from Trade Stats Express. Exports fell from an all-time high of $1.40 trillion in 2014 to $1.32 trillion in 2015. This trend extends to the top four markets for U.S.-manufactured goods: Canada, Mexico, China, and Japan. On the other hand, exports rose to our fifth and sixth largest trading partners, the United Kingdom and Germany. The bottom line, however, remains. It is a challenging environment right now for growing international demand, particularly given the strong U.S. dollar and persistent economic weaknesses in key markets. This finding is consistent with the 57.9% of respondents to the most recent NAM Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey who said that the global slowdown had negatively impacted their company’s export sales. Significant worldwide financial market volatility in the early weeks of 2016 has challenged the growth outlook for many manufacturers.

While manufacturing production is expected to increase around 1.5% this year, there are sufficient downside risks to that forecast, especially from abroad. At the top of that list is China, whose slowdown has prompted global contagion worries. The Caixin China General Manufacturing PMI has not contracted for the 13th time in the past 14 months. Even though the Chinese economy officially grew 6.8% year-over-year in the fourth quarter—a number that is viewed with suspicion by most analysts—overall activity continues to decelerate faster than the government would prefer. This includes industrial production, which has declined from 7.9% year-overyear growth in December 2014 to 5.9% in December 2015, but it is also true for fixed asset investment and retail sales. As a result, I would not be surprised if the Bank of China continues to seek stimulative moves in an attempt to spur more growth. Using the official estimates, my outlook is for 6.4% year-over-year growth in China for 2016. Overall, the global economy continues to grow ever-so-modestly even as it remains quite challenged. The J.P. Morgan Global Manufacturing PMI edged slightly higher, up from 50.7 in December to 50.9 in January. The underlying data were mixed, with the pace of new orders picking up but employment growth slowing. Output and exports were both positive, but flat for the month. It should be noted that one-quarter of the weighting of the global index comes from the United States (up from 51.2 to 52.4), where manufacturing activity rebounded at the start of the new year after falling to a three-year low in December. Interestingly, this differs from the Institute for Supply Management’s competing survey, which showed contraction in January for the fourth straight month. Beyond these headline numbers, the narrative mostly remains the same so far in 2016 as it was in 2015, with several countries remaining chronically challenged on the growth front. This includes Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, and South Korea, which all contracted in January much as they did throughout last year, similar to China. On the positive side, several of them also experienced some improvement in January, albeit still in negative territory. Europe has not been immune to global softness, but has generally made progress in its economy over the course of the past year. Still, the Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI decreased from 53.2 to 52.3, pulling back from its highest level since April 2014. The easing in activity reflected slowing—but still somewhat modest—growth for new orders, output, and exports. At the same time, employment picked up in January, with hiring expanding for 17 straight months. Eurozone manufacturing activity closely tracks sentiment in Germany. Demand and production pulled back in January in Germany, not nonetheless expanded at a decent pace. Ireland (up from 54.2 to 54.3) and Spain (up from 53.0 to 55.4) also accelerated in their expansions in January, boosted by strong

growth in new orders in each country. The data for other nations were more mixed, but with continuing modest growth overall. With that said, growth in Europe remains slower-than-desired, and the European Central Bank (ECB) continues to worry about deflation. (The latter is true even though the annual inflation rate ticked up in January.) There remains speculation that the ECB will further expand its quantitative easing program at its March meeting. The Senate prepares to take up and pass trade facilitation and enforcement legislation, while the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement

is signed, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks head to their 12th round. New developments are also reviewed on customs automation, Iran sanctions, intellectual property, and India and Chinese economic policies. Excerpt reprinted with permission.

COMPRESSED AIR EFFICIENCY

Don’t Bring a

CANNON to a Rabbit Hunt By Ron Marshall for the Compressed Air Challenge

How much power do you hold in that air gun in the palm of your hand? If you are the typical compressed air user, you will have no idea; most people think compressed air is free. But surprisingly, the production of compressed air has significant costs; in fact, in terms of how much power goes into an air compressor compared to what comes out, this common utility is very expensive.

A quick test: if you wanted to clean dust from the top of your tool bench, what would you use? Compressed Five (5)-hp A dust Fractional ¼-hp air gun turbo blower cloth electric blower

Considering a 5-hp electric motor is over 100 lbs and consumes considerable power, that choice seems quite ridiculous, but in terms of electrical cost it is equivalent to the compressed air gun. You may be unaware that it takes about 5 hp to generate the compressed air consumed by a typical large compressed air blowgun, and the actual

mechanical energy you get out to displace almost weightless dust is miniscule. This is a real-life example of “bringing a cannon to a rabbit hunt.” But in this case, the rabbit doesn’t get blown to smithereens; your energy bill takes a hit. It theoretically takes about 7 to 8 hp of electrical power to produce one hp of mechanical energy at a compressed air consumer. Due to the laws of physics, when air is compressed to produce potential energy, most of what comes out is heat. A small fraction of the energy can be used to drive electric tools and equipment. In fact, when the air expands back out to atmospheric pressure, the heat must return. The word “theoretically” was used in the previous paragraph because the statement does not reflect real-world conditions. The energy ratio mentioned is in laboratory conditions. A real compressed air system has losses—leakage averaging 20 to 30%, inappropriate use, excess demand due to higher than required system pressures, and inefficiencies in how the compressors operate. In real life, the actual energy input compared to what you get out can be as low as 2%. This usually makes the use of compressed air systems the least effective way to do any work in your facility. Companies that want to become more competitive in the marketplace have realized that compressed air is costly and are taking steps to minimize the use in their day-to-day operations. And air guns are not the most costly consumer. Other items may even waste more: ƒƒ Compressed air-driven motorized devices, especially end uses that operate continuously like air motor mixers or permanently mounted air tools, are very expensive to operate compared to direct drive electric devices. ƒƒ Air-driven diaphragm pumps consume much more energy than electric-driven units and strangely consume more energy when pumping empty.

All the Hydraulic Hardware You’ll Ever Need!

ALLOYS & COMPONENTS, SOUTHWEST

ƒƒ Cabinet coolers using a flow of compressed air or air-driven vortex variety use significantly more electrical power than a simple fan or refrigerated cooler. ƒƒ Compressed air-powered humidifiers, used to condition the workspace, consume huge amounts of energy compared to high-pressure water humidifiers. ƒƒ The use of compressed air for breathing air in painting areas or welding shops is much more energy intensive than using low-pressure blower supplies or proper ventilators. ƒƒ Agitating or mixing liquids consumes high levels of energy compared to using low-pressure sources. ƒƒ Drum vacuum cleaners powered by compressed air are very inefficient compared to electric units. ƒƒ Compressed air-powered ring jet nozzles that move atmospheric air by introducing a high-velocity stream of compressed air costs significantly more to run than an electric fan. ƒƒ Drainage of compressed air using timer-style drains, or worse, crack open valves expelling a constant stream of compressed air, wastes energy. ƒƒ Leakage of compressed air in poorly maintained piping systems is a typical consumer of air and something that can be fixed. Turning off the compressed air system at night and on weekends reduces the waste caused by leaks. Attention to inappropriate usage and waste in your compressed air system can save you big dollars due to the high energy cost of compressed air. Work to optimize your system to get the best bang for your buck.

Bill – If you are eligible, IFPS is an approved organization by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide reimbursement for certification test fees. IFPS certifications are portable and recognized industry-wide. IFPS certifications are valid for five years and therefore must be renewed every five years (recertification).

NEW STRATEGIC ALLIANCES

FIRST NEWS

FIRST Students Offer Helping Hands – Literally – to Those in Need Most eighth grade students spend their lunch breaks eating a sandwich or snacking on a burrito. However, FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6914 “Charging Chaos” and FIRST Tech Challenge Team 8823 “Mariner Mayhem” from St. Francis, Wis., decided to do something a bit more altruistic with their time off: build prosthetic hands for several youngsters around the country. As part of a FIRST robotics program at Deer Creek Intermediate School, a group of middle school students—along with their science teacher and FIRST mentor, Peter Graven—have been using 3D printing technology to create prosthetic hands at a cost significantly lower than ones currently on the market. The going rate for a prosthetic arm can be as much as $50,000. However, after two months of working together for 15 minutes a day during their lunch breaks designing, printing, and assembling a prototype, team members were able to create a similar prosthetic hand using just $20 worth of materials. Graven, who has been involved with FIRST since 2007, said he’s amazed at what the students have accomplished and how FIRST benefits go well beyond the classroom. He added that FIRST activities help his students build confidence in their thinking and open their minds to creative solutions.

FIRST announced new alliance collaborations with three organizations: Alpha Omega Epsilon, Electronics Component Industry (ECIA) Association, and Sigma Phi Delta. These new alliances will join FIRST to • advocate and promote career opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in grades K-12 and higher education; • build on existing STEM-related programs; • and seek ways to engage their memberships in FIRST mentor/coach opportunities as a means of workforce development, increased community involvement, and/ or to encourage employees to give back to the communities where they live/work.

FIRST STRONGHOLDSM REVEALED AMID MUCH FANFARE The 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition game FIRST STRONGHOLD SM was launched on January 9 to a crowd of more than 1,000 people at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, N.H., hometown of FIRST headquarters—where Senator for New Hampshire Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and New Hampshire Governor Margaret Hassan (D-N.H.) encouraged students to become the next generation of creative problem-solvers. More than 75,000 high school students on over 3,100 teams at 114 venues around the globe joined the 2016 kickoff via live broadcast. In FIRST STRONGHOLD, two alliances of three robots each are on a quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defenses and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final 20 seconds of the quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it. At the kickoff, teams were shown the game field and challenge details for the first time, and received a kit of parts made up of motors, batteries, control system components, construction materials, and a mix of additional automation components—with limited instructions. Working with adult mentors, students have six weeks to design, build, program, and test their robots to meet the season’s engineering challenge. Once these young inventors build a robot, their teams will participate in one or more of the 118 regional and district events that measure the effectiveness of each robot, the power of collaboration, and the determination of students. About FIRST®: Accomplished inventor Dean Kamen founded FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) in 1989 to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. Based in Manchester, N.H., FIRST designs accessible, innovative programs to build self confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering.

Simona Onorini is product manager for Gefran, Inc., and her position is dedicated to the linear potentiometers line, as well as the new product range for mobile hydraulics applications: halleffect rotation sensors, tilt sensors, and wire angle potentiometers. She studied economy before specializing in marketing and business communication. She started her career as a consultant working as a market trends researcher and analyst handling performance and business satisfaction programs, as well as staff training.

Justin Fluegel is general manager for Hengli America, a subsidiary of Hengli Hydraulic. He started his career in fluid power by taking classes at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) to earn his Mechanical Engineering degree. He designed custom hydraulic cylinders and components, and developed full industrial machines before joining Hengli. His current focus is leading his team to grow sales within the U.S. market, and finding and developing Hengli’s distribution partners within North America.


The major markets for growth in the United States are in construction and transportation. Construction market growth should be in the 6-8% range, as we continue to see non-residential construction growth in infrastructure and commercial space increase. Transportation will continue to grow in the work-truck, trailer markets, and rail markets. There is a potential for small to medium agricultural equipment to see some growth this year, though large agricultural equipment will most likely not bounce back until 2017 with the return of stronger farm incomes. Through all segments, we are seeing a lot of growth in the automation and controls section, as electro-hydraulics are used more and more commonly in the middle and smaller tiers of equipment manufacturers. Baker

Both domestic and international construction markets, as in new roads, bridges, and road repair, should see some growth opportunity in 2016. As a result, the stone and asphalt needed for this growth should ramp up the mining production requirements for all associated products. Fetty

Efficiency and automation will continue to be a focus for U.S.-based production, as well as a drive to higher complexity solutions for U.S.-based production. Labor, as a portion of the cost of hydraulics production (in the U.S.), must continue to decrease to maintain cost competitiveness. To handle this, the manufacturers in the United States must continue to invest in process improvement and factory automation, while maintaining and improving quality of the product. This is difficult to manage in a lower market (as is forecast for the first half of 2016). This dual focus (efficiency and quality) in this economy has been our continued focus at Bailey throughout 2015 and 2016. In addition, the technical training and advancement of our existing workforce must continue. As we advance with automation, the workforce must continue to advance and be ready. Baker

[A big challenge is] keeping up with technology and staying focused on improving reliability while maintaining strict guidance on effective price structure for the end user of the machines. With regulations becoming so stringent in the mining industry, it is extraordinarily difficult to keep machine prices down and yet push for newer technology. The industry needs to band together and pressure our government to loosen the current EPA’s controlling reins. It is becoming difficult to compete with foreign markets due to the fewer regulations these countries have to operate under. Fetty

Onorini

The major challenges are these: Efficiency: controlling all the main machine movements, such as the vehicle’s inclination, the fifth-wheel rotation, or

Big players populate the mobile hydraulics market. Opportunities come from companies producing big machinery, such as large excavators, tractors, and aerial platforms, as well as those manufacturing components such as cylinders. The most interesting growth in the global hydraulic market mainly refers to some segments like the agriculture, the earth-moving equipment, and lifting applications. The worldwide sales estimations from recent market research for these segments return a value of over EUR 300 Billion. In this context, Europe represents 42% of the global market, followed by the Asian world with 40%, and finally America with 18%. In this scenario, one of the main opportunities is linked to the growing trend of equipping machines with more and more sensing devices in order to make them more efficient and technologically advanced. Onorini

At Hengli, our three major market areas—North America, Europe, and Asia—have many parallels. All three are experiencing turbulent market conditions; however, we see signs of stability in the construction equipment market with a bright spot in the lift and access industry. In China, aerial work platforms and scissor lifts demand is beginning to grow as employee safety becomes more important. In the U.S. and Europe, we see slow construction and infrastructure investment stimulating demand. Fluegel

the alignment of the platform where the operator works. The market requires solutions that can offer accurate controls to the highest number of machine movements with high repeatability. Intelligence: equipping the machines with advanced sensors for specialized controls. It is necessary to provide a high level of automation and digital communication (CAN J1939 protocol) in order to reduce the operator’s control and make the machines more intelligent. Safety: related to both the machine and the operator. The safety regulations, related to both mechanical and environmental factors, require the manufacturers to offer products capable of monitoring the vehicle operation and to report any malfunction that may compromise the reliability of the application. From piston pumps through valves and into cylinders, the expectation of performance is increasing across the market. A newer expectation is longevity of components, and Hengli has invested in research and development projects to meet those expectations: from longer service intervals to increased corrosion resistance. From a regulation standpoint, we have already started to have conversations with customers about upcoming Tier 5 emissions standards and other countries globally increasing the environmental restraints. The challenge presented to us, a fluid power supplier, is how to provide efficient products in compact envelopes. One of the challenges facing the mobile market is lack of technical resources for projects. This narrows the number of potential projects to many customers and slows the adoption of new technologies and products. Fluegel

Bailey has taken the challenge of internally training technically gifted personnel in hydraulics technology and process automation. By offering internal training and bonuses for completion of formal certification, we have generated significant interest in completion of the certification steps, and we support the costs of the training and testing. This will continue to be crucial as our workforce ages and retires. We are also taking the direction of supporting hydraulics in more unusual applications to ensure that young, technical people have exposure to hydraulics in general and Bailey specifically. Engagement is critical in the newer generations. Baker

The way to attract young people into this field is through education. The Fetty vocational institutes need to start educating in equipment repair with a focus on hydraulics. These types of classes need to be marketed to attract the younger generation. The mentality I often see is that young people want to go to college for office-

The growing use of electronics in the vehicles can bring this industry to develop innovative products with advanced performance. In the U.S., the knowledge base of hydraulics is more tribal in nature with limited formal programs. The IFPS provides an excellent validation of skills with its certifications; however, the challenge is the acquisition of that knowledge. Seminars and classes are available, as are books for self-study, but mentoring from experienced people in the workforce is the greatest transfer of knowledge. The experienced professionals will need to train younger entrants Fluegel

into the industry, requiring their longer participation in the field. I remember in my Mechanical Engineering program at MSOE, even with its Fluid Power Institute, I was only able to take two classes focused specifically on fluid power. I compare my experience to colleagues at Hengli who have recently graduated from universities in China with degrees in Hydraulics Engineering, having studied in-depth componentry design in addition to system design and simulation. In having a clear educational path available at the university level, they are able to see clear possibilities within fluid power and mobile machinery industries. To compete globally, the U.S. fluid power community needs to establish a clear vision for middle, high school, and college students to visualize potential career paths that utilize their skills and cultivate their interests.

TRACTION CONTROL using

TORQUE DIVIDER

By HydraForce, Inc.'s Travis Schmidt, CFPS; Scott Parker, CFPS; and Ben Dupre

Series Controlling traction in hydraulic propel applications can be a slippery situation. Good traction demands all driving wheels take an equal share of propulsion loads, without slipping, scuffing, or cavitating. There are a wide variety of hydraulic propel circuits and products available to today’s vehicle designer, including both closed and open circuit pumps and motors. Economical series circuits are prone to cavitation, as inside and outside turning radii differ. Parallel circuits consume energy in the flow dividers and still require additional accommodation for differing wheel speeds. This article details the approach leading to the development of a multifunctional cartridge valve that divides torque between loads in a series circuit. It discusses the benefits of the new approach.

58

Closed-loop hydrostatic drives offer many advantages in propel applications. These high-power density drives are compact, and they allow vehicle designers much flexibility in component location and speed control. There are many choices available when implementing a hydrostatic propel system. Finding a system that fits economically and performs well is a challenge that requires evaluating competing approaches. Important considerations are weight, size, flexibility, performance, cost of components, and economy of operation. This article describes basic parallel and series drive circuit configurations to establish the challenges any hydraulic traction drive might experience. Load-balancing, traction control, and steering differential had particular impact on the development of the solution.

A REASON FOR CHANGE Traction circuits are possible with various plumbing configurations, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Driving over uneven terrain or in adverse conditions, such as mud, snow, and ice, offer the challenge of preventing wheel slippage when loads on each wheel can be different. Then there is the competing challenge of allowing wheels to turn at different speeds to accommodate steering geometry, while

also ensuring they provide adequate and even tractive effort to the vehicle. Not the least consideration is providing a solution that fits a parSeries ticular vehicle’s market economics. A quick look at the common drive w/makeup circuit types allows us to look at the issues of each configuration and informs a balanced approach.

THE SERIES PROPEL CIRCUIT Series circuits, as implied, have a single path of flow through multiple motors. The series circuit ensures all motors turn, even when loads differ at each wheel. Pressure drop at each motor is additive in series circuits (Fig. 1).

Issues Because pressure drops are additive in a series circuit, the inlet pressure at the upstream motor(s) can

Parallel w/slip and diff-lock

FIG. 2

be very high. This can raise case pressures, stressing shaft seals and internal components. Motors with case drain can experience elevated Parallel flows when in upstream position. In a traction circuit, all motors are w/flow divider in contact with the ground. This forms a semi-rigid connection: all motors want to turn at a similar speed. If the motors in the circuit have case drains, downstream motors can cavitate severely because of fluid exiting by the drain. A cavitating motor has negative inlet pressure and therefore does not contribute any tractive effort to the system. Cornering vehicles experience turning differential. The turning circles of all wheels are concentric, therefore the speeds aren’t equal. This can cause problems, such as cavitation or scuffing the surface (Fig. 2).

Parallel w/slip


Parallel motor circuits split pump flow between multiple motors. Pressure in each circuit branch varies according to load. All branches of a parallel circuit share the total output flow. Flow in parallel circuits favors the circuit branch with the lowest pressure drop (Fig. 3).

Issues Series This type of circuit only works well when all motors are evenly loaded. Any small difference in wheel traction easily leads to spin out, consuming all flow from the other branches. This is not a practical solution for traction control.

SERIES/PARALLEL CIRCUIT (4-WHEEL DRIVE) The series/parallel circuit is typically employed with opposite motors in series (FR+RL, RR+FL). This canSeries balance tractive effort in the system simply because loss of w/makeup traction is less likely to occur at opposite corners of the vehicle (Fig. 4).

Issues

By far the most common traction circuit employs parallel flow with divide/combiner valves. These valves are pressure-compensated flow controls that split a flow into two parallel branches. They also operate bi-directionally to combine two branches. Two metering spools operate together such that if pressure rises in one branch, the opposing leg is restricted. This ensures even division while compensating for pressure differences in the branches. A circuit using flow dividers can Parallel ensure all wheels turn regardless of w/steering angle Being bypass load differences. a parallel circuit, pressure drop is not additive, and it will not exhibit the cavitation

Flow divider/combiner valves are restrictive metering devices. They operate more accurately with a higher pressure drop. This can contribute significant losses and heat to a traction drive. Pressure drop increases Parallelwith flow. Fig. 6 illustrates that flow dividers contribute the highest parasitic loss of all components in a hydrostatic propulsion drive.1 Series

The flow divider/combiner valves in this type of circuit perform well at ensuring all wheels turn at the same rate. This circuit is unable to accommodate turning differential.

This configuration is essentially two series circuits and two parallel circuits. As such, it has weaknesses of both approaches.

NFPA MEMBERS START SCHOOL YEAR STRONG WITH FLUID POWER CHALLENGE EVENTS NFPA Fluid Power Challenge veterans started the school year out with a bang! The Challenge is a competition where middle school students solve an engineering problem using fluid power. They work in teams of four to design and build a fluid power mechanism, and then the teams compete against other teams in a timed competition. The students learn about teamwork, problem solving, and perseverance. In addition, they have lots of fun. Here are the events that took place last fall and winter: ƒƒ Caterpillar in Joliet, IL.: This is Caterpillar’s second year of hosting, and they brought in 27 teams. ƒƒ Deltrol in Palatine, IL: Deltrol has hosted seven events, and this year brought in a record 85 teams. ƒƒ Daman in South Bend, IN: Daman has hosted six events, and this year brought in 28 teams. ƒƒ Milwaukee School of Engineering in Milwaukee, WI: MSOE has hosted eight events, and this year brought in 29 teams. All of these members and partners invest in the NFPA Fluid Power Challenge – financially and with their time. They are helping to make students aware of fluid power technology and think about fluid power as a career path. Other Challenge events took place at Eisenhower Middle School in Hoffman Estates, Ill., and in Fayette County, Pa., hosted by the Pennsylvania Small Business Education Fund.

NFPA’s Role in Fluid Power Standardization Advocacy

1. Description and disclosure of multiple roles played by NFPA as ISO secretariat, ANSI administrator, and fluid power industry advocate.

BY ERIC LANKE, NFPA CEO Standards development is a key activity that contributes to the fulfillment of NFPA’s mission to strengthen the fluid power industry. As a result, our Board of Directors recently determined that it may, from time to time, be appropriate for NFPA to take a position of public advocacy for a particular standardization initiative. In accordance with that decision, a new process has been established that will govern NFPA’s decision method and potential actions in this regard. That process is summarized below and includes several key procedures.

All partaking in this process should be aware that NFPA plays multiple roles in the standards-setting environment. ƒƒ As secretariat to ISO Technical Committee 131, ISO holds NFPA responsible for providing the administration necessary for that committee and its subcommittees to conduct themselves according to ISO directives and other international organizational procedures. The committee’s role, among other things, is to build international consensus around and to develop standards that are of use and benefit to the global fluid power industry. ƒƒ As administrator to the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO TC 131, ANSI holds NFPA responsible for providing the administration necessary for that TAG and its subcommittees to conduct themselves

according to ANSI operating procedures. The TAG’s role, among other things, is to identify and represent the views of the U.S. fluid power industry in the international standards-setting process governed by ISO. ƒƒ As a trade association representing the U.S. fluid power industry, NFPA plays a crucial role in speaking to public policy professionals and others on behalf of that industry. NFPA’s role in these discussions, among other things, is to help foster an innovative environment for the fluid power industry. These three roles often overlap, and can occasionally be in conflict with one another. The potential for conflict does not, however, absolve NFPA from responsibility in effectively fulfilling the responsibilities of all three roles. 2. Description of role of and process used by NFPA Roadmap Committee to identify the broad technology development needs of the fluid power industry and standardization initiatives that may support those development objectives. NFPA has delegated to its Roadmap Committee the responsibility for developing and maintaining the NFPA Technology Roadmap, a document that identifies the areas of pre-competitive research needed to meet the future needs of fluid power customers, expand fluid power into new customer markets, and attract the best and brightest young engineers to fluid power. The Roadmap Committee is also responsible for supplementing the NFPA Technology Roadmap with other, technology-specific roadmaps that can support or better address specific challenges or objectives identified in the Technology Roadmap. As part of these responsibilities, the Roadmap Committee periodically engages in discussions about possible standardization initiatives that may also support or better address specific challenges or objectives identified in the Technology Roadmap. The identification of research challenges and objectives, and any supporting standardization initiatives, is done through the broad consensus procedures of the committee. No one company or industry segment dominates these deliberations. Typically, a series of conference calls and in-person meetings with representatives across the fluid power supply chain are conducted before any decisions are made or reports are issued. The focus of all these discussions is on initiatives that will serve the broad needs of the fluid power industry as a whole. The antitrust policy of the NFPA governs and is reviewed at each of these meetings.


Although the outcomes of these discussions are shared with partners in and out of the fluid power industry and are represented as comprising a consensus-based view of the pre-competitive research and development needs of the industry, none of these outcomes automatically represent an official advocacy position of the NFPA. For that to occur, the NFPA Board of Directors must take specific action. 3. Questions to be asked and process to be used by NFPA Board to review the standardization initiatives so identified by the Roadmap Committee and to determine which, if any, should represent advocacy positions of the NFPA. Each time the Roadmap Committee produces a report that includes recommendations for standardization initiatives, those recommendations will be reviewed by the NFPA Board of Directors. The Board will delegate its review to an appointed task force comprised of Board members and other appropriate experts. The purpose of this review will be to determine which recommendations, if any, should represent official advocacy positions of the NFPA. In conducting this review, the Board’s appointed task force will be governed by the following question: ƒƒ Does the standardization initiative described represent a compelling opportunity to foster an innovative environment for the fluid power industry? In its deliberations, the Board’s appointed task force will define a compelling opportunity as one that will clearly benefit the entire industry, one that will meet the expectations of multiple fluid power customer markets, and one that cannot reasonably be achieved by other means.

dards to measure the energy consumption of fluid power systems could read: “The fluid power industry needs a standardized way to measure the energy consumption and efficiency of fluid power components and systems. As energy efficiency increasingly becomes a driver in fluid power’s core customer markets, such standards would provide an objective method for determining the efficiency contributions of fluid power products and for bringing new technologies more quickly to market.” The task force may include in the report whatever other supplemental information it deems necessary. The Board will take up the task force report at its next scheduled meeting. An in-person discussion and a majority vote to approve will be required before identifying a recommendation as an official advocacy position of the NFPA.

Once an official advocacy position has been approved by the NFPA Board of Directors, NFPA may take a number of appropriate actions, including: ƒƒ Speaking out publicly about the need for the initiative ƒƒ Convening forums where interested parties—in and out of the ISO structure—can explore ways to advance the initiative ƒƒ Seeking buy-in on the initiative from the aligned subcommittees of the U.S. TAG to ISO TC 131, with a view towards creating a new work item in the ISO development process

5. List of potential organizational actions to be taken once official advocacy positions have been identified.

Comments and feedback from NFPA members on this process are welcome. Please direct your comments to Eric Lanke at elanke@nfpa.com.

4. Description of the recommendation and approval process to be used by the NFPA Board of Directors to determine official advocacy positions of the NFPA. Should the Board’s appointed task force determine that a recommended standardization initiative of the Roadmap Committee should represent an official advocacy position of the NFPA, the task force will prepare a report for the Board. That report will state the recommended advocacy position in two clear sentences—one focused on the need to be filled and the second on the perceived value that will come from filling that need. For example, a recommended advocacy position dealing with the development of stanCIRCLE 207

HOW TO ENSURE

Bolted Joint Integrity

Fig. 1: No clamp

When Using a Compression Limiter in a Plastic Assembly BY TARA MEINCK, SPIROL INTERNATIONAL CORP. USA

Compression limiters are used to protect plastic components in bolted joints and maintain a threaded fastener’s clamp load by eliminating plastic creep. To function properly, bearing surface beneath the bolt’s head must extend over the compression limiter to contact the plastic component. If this bearing surface is too small, the host component may not be retained by the bolt, resulting in a poor joint (Fig. 1). There are several methods to ensure sufficient bearing surface under the bolt’s head. These include the use of a flanged bolt, washer, or headed compression limiter (Fig. 2). The individual component cost, ease of complexity of assembly, and overall cost of each configuration influence which method is best suited for each application.

How Much Plastic Should be Compressed? Ideally, compression limiter length is equal to or slightly less than the host thickness. The amount of material compressed under the bolt’s head varies depending on the application’s loading and plastic properties. This area of compression must be large enough to withstand forces attempting to pull the assembly apart, yet small enough to allow sufficient plastic compression so that the compression limiter contacts both the bolt and the mating component (Fig. 3).

Assembly Considerations Several factors, including speed and assembly method, must be considered when determining the most cost-effective solution for a specific application.

68

ASSEMBLY SPEED

Various fastener combinations were manually assembled to determine approximate differences in efficiency. Results are listed in Table 1. Assembly with a flanged bolt was the fastest, followed by that with a headed compression limiter, which must be oriented. As expected, the addition of a third component (the washer) significantly slowed the assembly process — requiring twice the assembly time.

Washer

AUTOMATING ASSEMBLY

When an assembly is automated, it is imperative to ensure the design is as efficient as possible. The addition of a third component, such as a washer, may not be desirable when automating due to feeding and alignment challenges. Other common factors affecting efficiency include number of components and ease of orientation. All bolts, headed compression limiters, and some washers require orientation. Due to their relatively low head to outer diameter ratio and short length, headed compression limiters and washers are more difficult to mechanically orient than bolts. Conversely, symmetrical compression limiters do not need to be oriented. An assembly with a flanged bolt only requires one component’s orientation, while that with a headed compression limiter or washer requires two components be oriented.

Headed compression limiter

Design Intangibles Use of a headed compression limiter or flanged bolt in serviceable assemblies may be preferable, as there would be no washer that could be accidentally omitted during reassembly. These are also preferable in applications

where there are multiple assembly locations and/or poor quality control.

Individual Component Costs Generally, fasteners are the least expensive components in an assembly. Table 2 shows representative pricing for each component combination previously discussed based on an annual usage of 1-million assemblies incorporating an M6 joint. Relative cost differences between bolts and compression limiters vary depending on component supplier and bolt characteristics. Of these three potential combinations, the method with a washer, bolt, and non-headed compression limiter provides the lowest component cost for controlling bearing surface. However, as previously stated, the cost of the fastening components is often the least significant compared to the overall cost of the assembly.

Conclusion The best method to ensure adequate bearing surface on the plastic in a bolted assembly depends on an application’s requirements and limitations. A washer may be preferred in lower volume and/or non-serviceable applications. In higher volume, automated, and/or serviceable applications, a non-headed compression limiter with a flanged bolt is the easiest to assemble and provides the lowest total cost. Both configurations with a washer or flanged bolt will provide a lower cost solution than using a headed compression limiter (Fig. 4). Although this article offers general design guidelines, it is recommended that application engineers who specialize in fastening and joining be consulted to ensure a properly configured joint is employed for each application.

Fig. 4

Overall Cost Table 3 shows an estimate overall cost analysis of each configuration, assuming a $50 USD/hour labor cost to assemble 1-million components.

Note: Not captured in this analysis are the administrative costs associated with ordering, handling, and maintaining inventory of components, as well as their suppliers. The addition of a third component may increase these costs. Additionally, if the assembly process is automated, the technology required to feed and orient a washer will also increase the overall cost. Regardless, a flanged bolt or washer can replace a headed compression limiter in most applications to increase assembly efficiency and lower the overall cost of the assembly.
