Perfect Reliability BY STEVE SKINNER

IS IT POSSIBLE, in the 21st century, to

sooner or later someone will forget to drain build a hydraulic system that doesn’t break it down before starting maintenance work on down? Mechanical devices will eventually the system. And one thing that’s 100% cerwear out, of course, so by “break down” we tain is that if there’s a pressure-compensated really mean fail unexpectedly. To help us pump on the system with a relief valve to achieve this aim of perfect reliability, we protect it, one day the compensator will be now have systematic tools available, such wound up higher than the relief and the oil’s as proactive maintenance procedures and going to boil. Anyone who’s worked with hydraulics for Design For Six Sigma (DFSS). The objective of DFSS is to design sys- any length of time could probably come up with a whole page full of tems that have a target such instances. It’s not that reliability level of at least maintenance people are 99.99966%, which equates "...EXPERTS TELL fools; it’s just that someto no more than 3.4 failUS THAT BETWEEN times we get tired and lose ures in every million 80% AND 85% concentration, sometimes opportunities.

So there are all both tools is to attempt to sorts of reasons why peothink of all possible failple sometimes do stupid ure mechanisms and then to prevent them from happening, either by things; I’ve done enough myself to know. Engineers therefore need to think about design or maintenance. However, safety experts tell us that between all these things that might (or rather, will) go 80% and 85% of industrial accidents are wrong and try to design them out.

stream of what was then the biggest port in the world, it had to allow tall-masted ships to pass freely beneath it. The result was Tower Bridge, one of the best-known landmarks of the City of London with its two opening sections or “bascules”. The problem was, each 162-foot long bascule weighed around 1,500 tons, and for the bridge to open, each had to tilt through almost 90 degrees in just over a minute then close again once the ship had passed through. To begin with, this would happen more than 20 times a day. The solution was eight 20-gal/rev hydraulic motors (with built-in brakes) operating via a curved rack and pinion arrangement. But being aware of the consequences of a failure of the bridge, the Victorian engineers built in numerous parallel systems and devices, and no doubt when the bridge opened in June 1894, they were confident that they had covered every eventuality. Unfortunately they were wrong, and one sunny afternoon in July, the bridge suffered a mechanical failure and failed to close. However, this was in July 1968 and in the interim 74-year period, the bridge had hydraulically opened and closed its 1,500-ton bascules 352,713 times. So is it possible, in the 21st century, to build a hydraulic system that doesn’t break down? Maybe not, but we should be able to get pretty close if they could achieve 99.99972% reliability in the 19th century.

The teaser is posted on the IFPS website (www.ifps.org) and also printed in the Fluid Power Journal. Submit your information via the website, or fax it to 856424-9248 attn: Donna Pollander. Those who submit the correct answer before the deadline will have their names printed in the Society Page newsletter and in Fluid Power Journal. The winners will also be entered into a drawing for a special gift.

If the rotary actuator has four 4" diameter cylinders as shown, what would be the necessary pressure to rotate the shaft with a torque of 5,000 lb. in.? Assume 100% efficiency. Also calculate the CIR (displacement).

SOLUTION Given: Torque is 5,000 lb. in. Four cylinders with a diameter of 4 inches (two pushing at one time) Four-inch pitch diameter of pinion gear STEP 1: Find push for the cylinders: T = RP (Torque = Radius and push or pull) Radius of the pinion gear is 2 inches.

5,000 lb. in. = 2" x Push P = 2,500 lbs. (for two cylinders). Note again that only two cylinders are pushing at a time. STEP 2: Find push for each cylinder: 2,500 total / 2 = 1,250 lbs. per cylinder STEP 3: Find area of 4" cylinder: A = D² x 0.7854 A = 12.566 sq. in.

Find pressure requirements: F = PA 1250# / 12.566 = 99.47 psi or rounding up: 100 psi

HE INTERNATIONAL FLUID POWER SOCIETY (IFPS) HAS DEDICATED JUNE 19 AS “FLUID POWER PROFESSIONALS' DAY” - A DAY OF RECOGNITION FOR ALL OF US WHO WORK IN THE FLUID POWER FIELD!

It has been said that fluid power is a “hidden giant” because it is so common in every aspect of our day-to-day existence that we have simply overlooked the obvious. There is not a vehicle, ship, plane, or train that can operate without fluid power. There is no consumer item, no electronic gadget, and no morsel of food we grow that can exist in enough quantity at a cost we can afford without the use of fluid power and our efforts. From the ancient waterwheels of an emerging agrarian economy through the renaissance of industrial revolution to the automation and information technology age of today, we have worked to utilize, maintain, improve, and advance this all-encompassing technology. These efforts have improved productivity, ensured safety, and provided critical services that improve the quality of all of our lives. THANK YOU!

WHY JUNE 19TH? A little bit of history behind the date is interesting. Blaise Pascal—a French mathematician, inventor, writer, and physicist—was born on this day clear back in 1623. His work in hydrodynamics and hydrostatics, including the invention of the hydraulic press, paved the way for all future innovations. He was also instrumental in experiments in pneumatics that examined the behavior of air in a vacuum and validated the work of the man who invented the barometer, Evangelista Torricelli. Because of Blaise Pascal and his work, the scientific foundation of thermodynamics and fluid power was set to build upon for those who followed.

WWW.FLUIDPOWERJOURNAL.COM | WWW.IFPS.ORG

CELEBRATE THE DAY: Wear emblems, pins, badges, and shirts noting your fluid power affiliation or organization. Plan a picnic. Demonstrate practical hydraulics to the kids with a squirt gun battle or just set up the sprinkler in the back yard. On your way to the beach, pool, or water park, note how many fluid power applications you can spot. Make this a special day in your life of day-to-day work in fluid power by taking the time to celebrate with your friends and colleagues in the industry. Remember that your efforts make all the difference.

HYDRAULIC HOSE, FITTINGS & ACCESSORIES

WHEN AND WHERE DID YOUR CAREER IN THE FLUID POWER INDUSTRY START?

My career started in 1992 as a private in the U.S. Army working as a heavy equipment mechanic. WHAT IS THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN YOUR FLUID POWER CAREER, AND WHAT DID IT TEACH YOU?

PROFILE DATA Frank Fetty, MHM, is customer service manager at J.H. Fletcher® & Co. He joined the Army and spent 11 years going from private repairing equipment to overseeing repair shops. During that time, Fetty was deployed in two combat zones and went to college at night to receive his degree in Applied Science from Austin Peay State University. During the Afghanistan deployment, he was injured and had to medically retire from the military and head to the civilian side of life. He is a member of the 2014 IFPS Board of Directors.

Seems every day creates a memorable moment, which teaches me there is always some way to make the design safer and stronger.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ACHIEVEMENT IN THE FLUID POWER INDUSTRY?

The most important achievement is the innovative safety engineered into the fluid power industry. HOW AND WHY DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE IFPS?

It started as a work requirement, but then I became astonished at all the training and knowledge available from one place. I am rather new to the IFPS only being a member for three years now with a MHM certification, but I’m jumping in with both feet to gain all the knowledge that I can retain and help grow the underground mining industry to the safest possible fluid power arrangements available.

WHY DO YOU FEEL THE IFPS IS IMPORTANT?

EDITION 0313

It’s important to keep the fluid power industry growing and working actively to make the industry a safer environment. WHERE DO YOU SEE THE FLUID POWER INDUSTRY HEADING IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS?

I see the industry heading in a remote-access control site, operating like the drones of today. I see employees being in a safe environment using the equipment from office space instead of on the ground.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE HOBBIES OR INTERESTS?

My favorite hobby is coaching girls’ Fastpitch Softball and seeing their skills develop to be able to advance to the collegiate level. Then hunting and fishing, which runs a close second as I get older and less mobile. WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO LEARN ABOUT YOU?

I get more satisfaction out of watching young techs learn and succeed more than my own accomplishments.

FOCUS ON TRAINING

DON’T IGNORE the Basics

BY RON MARSHALL, COMPRESSED AIR CHALLENGE

Workers at a small fiberglass manufacturer implemented some good efficiency measures a few years ago, yet some basic elements of their system were ignored. As a result, their production tools were experiencing performance problems even though the new Variable Speed Drive (VSD) air compressor had its discharge pressure turned up as high as it could go. Using some simple pressure measurements, a compressed air auditor was able to identify that some undersized basic system components were the cause of the problem.

W

POOR PERFORMANCE

compressed air tools contacted a compressed air auditor, hoping a solution to the problem could be found. The auditor placed some data loggers on the system to determine a pressure profile between the compressor discharge and various key points on the system. Using this information, the auditor put together a system pressure profile (Fig. 1).

PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT PRESSURE P1 TO P3 Pressure points P1 to P3 were measured, and the pressure differential across the system filter, an external aftercooler, and an air dryer was found to be as high as 78 psi at full system flow. The compressor itself was maintaining very stable pressure, but due to a large restriction in the aftercooler (the unit had become plugged over time), adequate stable pressure could not reach the plant. The pressure differential across the filter and the dryer was less than 4 psi at full flow. The cooler had originally been installed to condition the very hot air produced by two reciprocating compressors. But these compressors had been replaced by a screw compressor that had an onboard cooler. Based on this information, the plugged cooler was removed with a significant improvement in the pressure. This allowed a 20-psi reduction in compressor discharge pressure, which was required because the new screw compressor could only operate at 125 psi. Surprisingly, it didn’t improve the tool performance problems.

COMPRESSED AIR DISTRIBUTION P3 TO P4 Special measurements were done to see if the pressure differential across the plant piping system was causing an issue. The plant had a large 4-inch ring main running along the outside walls of the plant, but the inner pipe network was a complex and sometimes confusing jumble of oddsized pipes. Critical areas were identified and data loggers were placed to detect the pressure during the production cycle. At first glance, plant personnel felt sure it was the piping that was causing the poor tool performance. One contractor even quoted over $30,000 of piping improvements to upgrade undersized areas. Once the data loggers were full, they were downloaded, and it was determined that only 3 psi of piping differential was being experienced from test point P3 at the discharge of the air dryer to P4 at the beginning of the piping drop to the most critical end use, an air-operated cutter.

Compressed air-powered hand tools are used in the plant to cut large fiberglass pieces out of the moulds, and to shape and finish them for final shipping to the parent company. The cutting tools did not perform very well when operators tried to make their cuts to release the pieces from the moulds. At first, when starting the operation, the performance was acceptable, but the tool would quickly slow and sometimes stall, well before the cut was complete. As a result, even though the tool was rated at 90 psi, the compressor discharge pressure FIG. 1: VARIOUS TEST POINTS had to be boosted to 140 psi to gain adequate production output. Even with this excessively high pressure, the tool performance was not up to standard levels. This excessive pressure increased the air compressor power consumption by about 18% and also caused an almost 30% increase in the compressed air flow consumed by all of the unregulated uses in the plant. After receiving complaints from the customer, the supplier of the

FIG. 2: MEASUREMENTS AT NO FLOW, FULL FLOW RESTRICTED, AND FULL FLOW OPTIMIZED

END USE P4 TO P5 As it was not practical to place data loggers on the tool itself, some basic tests were done using a simple testing setup made of a T connection, two quick-connect couplings, and a gauge. The test setup was connected at points P4 to P6 to measure the pressure differential at each point after the quick-connect couplings while the tool was in operation. Each test required two measurements: one with the tool at rest and the other when the tool was in operation. The test with the tool at rest measured the system pressure. Comparing this pressure against the reading when the tool was in operation showed the approximate pressure differential from point P4. The test of the cutter showed that with no air flowing, there was 118 psi at the test gauge. With the tool in operation, the pressure fell to 44 psi. Since the tool is rated for a pressure of 90 psi, full performance was not being achieved. An analysis of the path through which the air had to travel showed that for this tool, the excessive pressure loss of 74 psi was being caused by a hose reel, four undersized quick-connect couplers, and 60 feet of hose. As an experiment, all the quick-connect couplers and the hose reel were removed, except for an upsized full-flow connector at the tool. A second

test showed the operating pressure at the tool was now above 90 psi. At this pressure, the performance of the cutter was very noticeably improved—so much so, in fact, that production personnel refused to allow the experimental setup to be removed. It should be noted that with this improved situation, the pressure differential across the hose and fittings is still 26 psi when the tool is in operation, representing a loss of 22%. A target loss should be no more that 10% from the discharge of the compressor to the critical end use, including the air dryer and filter. This will require an increase in hose and connector size, and a reduction in the length of the hose by properly extending and locating the larger-sized distribution steel piping drop closer to the work location. The operating cost and performance of this system, and the tools connected to it, can be greatly improved by paying attention to, and improving, some basic system components. Sometimes some simple measurements can detect major problems where they are least expected.

‰ ECONOMIC REPORT

Global Manufacturing Update BY CHAD MOUTRAY, CHIEF ECONOMIST, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MANUFACTURERS (NAM)

December 13, 2013 – The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says that world trade should rebound next year, with growth increasing from its annual pace of 3.7% in 2013 to 5.5% in 2014. The OECD also forecasts improvements in real GDP for the United States (up from 1.7% to 2.9%), Europe (up from -0.4% to 1.0%), and China (up from 7.7% to 8.2%). Despite such gains, weaknesses persist in emerging markets, and continued political risks could dampen the prospects for better growth. The prospects for faster global growth should help drive more manufacturing exports in the coming months. The U.S. trade deficit narrowed in October, averaging $40.2 billion through the first 10 months of 2013. That is lower than the $46.4 billion and $44.6 billion deficits in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Yet, growth in U.S.-manufactured goods continues to be frustratingly slow so far this year, up just 1.9% year-todate relative to the same time period last year. Such a sluggish rate will make it hard to meet the President’s goal of doubling exports by 2015, as outlined in the National Export Initiative. Yet, we hope export sales will improve in 2014, especially with stabilizing economies in our largest international markets.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) represents small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector in all 50 states. For more information, visit www.nam.org.

The JPMorgan Global Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to its highest level in more than two years, up from 52.1 in October to 53.2 in November. The key drivers of the increased activity were higher levels for new orders (up from 53.3 to 54.8), exports (up from 51.9 to 52.8) and output (up from 52.9 to 55.3). With the exception of Brazil, all of the other top markets for U.S.-manufactured goods expanded in November. This is an improvement from September, when only six of these economies were growing. The recent progress worldwide has produced notable strides in manufacturing activity for a number of countries, with many reaching PMI levels not seen in several months or even several years. For instance, Japan’s manufacturing PMI reported new orders up at their fastest pace since February 2006. Such data are indicative of the recent gains in the global market, which, while not growing robustly, have made progress of late.

Meanwhile, we are often reminded that we live in an ever-increasing global marketplace, with China’s influence continuing to grow. Last week, we got another example of this. The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication reported that the Chinese yuan was used 8.66% of the time in such transactions, up from just 1.89% in January 2012. This suggests a substantial increase in the use of the yuan in trade in a very short period of time. The U.S. dollar continues to be the dominant currency used in trade finance, with parties using the dollar 81.08% of the time. However, it does illustrate the changing nature of international commerce and the rising stature of China on the trade front. Much of the policy news recently has focused on trade negotiations and global competitiveness. While the World Trade Organization (WTO) reached a Trade Facilitation Agreement in Bali, other negotiations with the Asia-Pacific, with Europe, and separately on information technology will continue into 2014. Preparations are also underway for major legislative activity in 2014, including on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), reauthorization of the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank, and international tax reform.

TECHNICAL CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. KEYNOTE PRESENTATION ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN FLUID POWER – THE IMPACT AND POTENTIAL SAVINGS IN MOBILE MACHINE APPLICATIONS
 Lonnie Love, Ph.D., Group leader of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL) Automation, Robotics and Manufacturing Group Fluid Power is a foundational technology for both the manufacture and operation of mobile machines. However, there are many areas where fluid power can improve. A recent ORNL/NFPA study suggests that between 2% and 3% of U.S. energy consumption is derived from fluid power components and systems. Furthermore, the average efficiency of fluid power systems is approximately 21%--although typically higher in mobile machines. Therefore, moderate improvements in efficiency can yield tremendous energy savings. Emerging trends in advanced manufacturing (additive processes, light-weight metals, low-cost carbon fiber) can simultaneously increase efficiency, as well as improve competitiveness. Another challenge is workforce development. How can we inspire youth to not only consider careers in science and engineering, but also become knowledgeable about the benefits and efficiency potential in fluid power?

COMPANY PROFILE

qualified and dedicated employees that monitor and control the process. It’s easy to produce such a high-quality product. ‰ WHAT IS YOUR FORECASTING MODEL AND HOW DOES IT ALLOW FOR GREATER PREDICTABILITY? We have a sophisticated forecasting model that takes a forecast received from our customer and drives those requirements through our supply chain back to the master coil raw material. This unique software solution enables us to offer more customization for our customers.

SHARON TUBE – A COMMITMENT TO SERVICE AND QUALITY

haron Tube, a recognized quality and service leader in the DOM precision tubing industry, recently completed a four-part video series discussing its service capability. The following are responses from the company’s employees discussing how new technology and a committed workforce have allowed them to increase their service capability in ways that stand out in the industry. ‰ HOW IS SHARON TUBE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DOM MANUFACTURERS? Sharon Tube is different because we’re a company that’s getting bigger while maintaining small company values – overall service to the customer, being close to the customer, listening to the customer, and doing the right things for our work force. We put together these videos to show how this small-mill mentality has allowed us to focus on service first, helping us meet and exceed our customers’ expectations on every order that they place. ‰ WHAT MAKES SHARON TUBE’S WORKFORCE STAND OUT IN THE INDUSTRY? Sharon Tube’s workforce is a very committed group of people. The average tenure probably runs 10 to 15 years, and we have a lot of long-term employees who have been here for 20+ years, with an additional 30 years of service from their fathers or other family members. They also recognize the importance of domestic manufacturing and are proud to be an all-American workforce. ‰ HOW DOES SHARON TUBE’S WORKFORCE BENEFIT THE CUSTOMER? Everyone works under one roof, which allows for us to provide the absolute best service for our customers. We all have a stake in the success of the company and in the satisfaction of our customers. We really do feel like a family with a

common objective to satisfy our customers and be a reliable supplier. Additionally, every department -- from sales to production planning, to tech services, to the people out on the floor, to management -- touches the product or looks at it in some fashion, ensuring that the best possible product is provided to our customers. ‰ HOW DOES RELIABILITY FACTOR INTO SHARON TUBE’S SERVICE CAPABILITY? Reliability is key here at Sharon Tube, and it allows us to stand out in the industry with ontime delivery performance and some of the shortest lead times in the industry. If we say we’re going to do something, we do it. And that reliability is the key to our success. ‰ HOW DOES FLEXIBILITY PLAY A ROLE IN THE DOM INDUSTRY AND AT SHARON TUBE? We have to be flexible enough to ensure that if a customer places a change or modification request to an order, they can count on the fact that we, as their supplier, will still be able to deliver the product on time. Our technology allows us to adapt when customers refine their needs. Whether it’s yield, tensile elongation, physical testing requirements, a shorter lead time, improved delivery requirements, increases to specific orders, changing a length, or additional testing, we do everything that we possibly can to make sure we’re saying “yes” instead of “no.” ‰ HOW DOES SHARON TUBE’S NEW AUTOMATED SYSTEM INCREASE SERVICE CAPABILITY? The state-of-the-art automation and tooling that we put in place allows for a consistency within our processes. We can do the same functions over and over again to ensure the correct quality within thousandths of an inch. We also have an integrated training system, providing hands-on

‰ HOW HAVE LEAD TIMES IN THE INDUSTRY CHANGED OVER THE YEARS, AND HOW HAVE YOU ADAPTED TO THEM? The DOM market is subject to swings in lead times. In the past two years, the market has experienced lead times ranging from four to 22 weeks. When lead times are extended, customers have to place orders well beyond their planning horizon. Our forecasting model allows us to permit change to their forecasts and deliver greater reliability and consistency as a result. ‰ WHAT IS THE OPERATION PROCESS AT SHARON TUBE? During the last two years, we’ve expanded our size range up to a nine-inch outside diameter, where we used to only go to six and a half. We’ve retooled our entire factory to increase our ability to move material through the mill very quickly. Our new high-capacity draw bench is among the largest in North America and has the capacity to pull three tubes in a single pass. We also have a new automated pickle and lube process that is timed to the second with advanced controls for consistent performance. Additionally, we have consolidated to one campus for our cold draw operations, which means everything (including our sales force, all the support staff, and the operations themselves) is located under one roof. This allows for a streamlined operation that results in faster turnover, as well as shortened lead times for our customers. ‰ WHAT DOES “QUALITY” MEAN AT SHARON TUBE? Quality is our first priority here at Sharon Tube. The employees care about their work, and they all want to put out a good product that not only meets but also exceeds ASTM and customer requirements. Customers know when our product comes through their door, they don’t have to worry – it will be exactly what they wanted.

In Memoriam Robert Cloud “Bob” Womack passed away on November 20, 2013 surrounded by his loving family. He was 97. While working as the director of tooling and maintenance for the National Housing Corp. during WWII, Bob developed many of the key principles that would later lead to his success in manufacturing and engineering. After WWII, he joined the Army Air Corps to serve as a machinist and a welder during the rebuilding of Germany where he met his wife, Ruth Dengler. When he returned to the United States, Bob eventually founded Womack Machine Supply Company in 1953. The company, headquartered in Dallas, Tex., expanded its business by offerR.C. (BOB) WOMACK ing free courses and developing numerous textbooks focused on hydraulic and pneumatic engineering principles Bob learned through his own experience. Bob’s fascination with inventing and developing his own products led to the foundation of AAA Products Inc. in 1960. Due to his professional expertise combined with his lifetime passion for teaching and learning, Southern Methodist University and Texas A&M University invited Bob to assist in the establishment of engineering labs at their respective campuses. In 2008, SMU bestowed upon Bob an honorary doctoral degree in engineering. An avid outdoorsman, Bob enjoyed fishing and hunting. He also became an accomplished pilot who owned his own plane. When his business grew into a multi-state operation, Bob would fly to the cities where he had offices to personally teach fluid power classes using the textbooks he wrote. A carpenter, a machinist, an engineer, an inventor, a pilot, an author, a teacher, a businessman, a philanthropist, and a benevolent Christian, Bob leaves a legacy of service to his community and devotion to his family. The Womack Group has numerous IFPS certified professionals and is part of ongoing IFPS educational programs.

QUICKDESIGN BREAKS THE TIME BARRIER OF INTEGRATED PACKAGE DESIGN by Sun Hydraulics Corporation

S

un QuickDesign is a web-based tool that automatically designs integrated hydraulic packages (custom manifolds) based on digital input from the user. There is no software to install. There are no fees. All that is needed is a user account, and then the tool is ready to use. Integrated packages typically require design time—usually weeks—which could deter the user from considering their use for short runs or prototype work. Sun QuickDesign eliminates design time and allows the user to complete an integrated package design within minutes in most cases. Complex designs may take longer. Once a design is submitted to Sun QuickDesign, the user gets notified via e-mail that the design is finished. A link is provided to the Project Manager Page, which contains all the outputs, including the following electronic files: • Body drawing • Assembly drawing • Cartridge cut sheets • Drill list • Verification schematic • Connection grid Additionally, the following CAD formats are available: • Body drawing in dwg and dxf • Assembly drawing in dwg and dxf • STP • IGES • INV • PARA • STL After reviewing the finished design, the user can download the machining files (if they prefer to manufacture it locally), make any necessary changes in the Sun QuickDesign tool, or

order the integrated package through the local Sun authorized distributor to be manufactured by Sun Hydraulics. Sun QuickDesign retains all design versions in the event that the user would like to revert back to a previous version when placing an order. Sun QuickDesign is best suited to handle circuits involving 12 or less cartridge valves and up to two ISO directional valve patterns. If your circuit involves more components, Sun’s team of manifold designers stand ready to design an integrated package for your application. There are several tutorial videos available on the Sun website to assist in familiarizing the user with Sun QuickDesign. The same highlight page contains a link to the registration process. The tool is very intuitive and, in most instances, new users are submitting designs shortly after registering. Visit www. snhy.com/QuickDesign to learn more. If you would like to try QuickDesign, all you have to do is register. There is no software to install, and it's completely free.

FLUID POWER PRODUCT FOCUS Fig. 1

CLEAN SEAL SYSTEM — MAKING THE CAPS AND PLUGS INDUSTRY MORE EFFICIENT AND “FUN” By Ultra Clean Technologies Corp. hen most people hear about capping hoses, they roll their eyes. It’s just another step in the hydraulic line assembly process. The tedious task of locating the right size and thread type for each fitting gets annoying, and more often than not, customers will receive their new assemblies uncapped. But what if capping hose and tube assemblies was more efficient? What if it was (dare we say it?) more fun? The Clean Seal System, the new sealing system from Ultra Clean Technologies Corp., is a product that just might change how you look at the caps and plugs industry. “The concept is simple,” says Steve Roath, national sales manager. “We use heat-shrink technology to shrink a specially formulated capsule onto the end of an assembly. No more worrying about thread types, or banging a cap onto a fitting, or screwing things on and off. Capping assemblies is now a breeze.”

FIELDBUS CONNECTIVITY FOR PNEUMATIC VALVE TERMINALS Festo Corp. ‰ The CTEU bus node inexpensively opens up DeviceNet, CANopen, EtherCat, Profibus, and more to multiple Festo valve terminal models, including MPA-L, VTUB, CPV, VTUG, and VTOC. As a result, it contributes to lower inventory requirements and simplifies logistics. The CTEU supports inputs and output, is independent of valve terminal size, is easy to replace and upgrade, has separate supply and load voltage for safety applications, and meets Ingress Protection Ratings IP65 and IP67. www.festo.com/usa

The complete Clean Seal System is comprised of a heating element and PVC capsules that are heat sensitive. An operator simply chooses a capsule that is closest in size to the OD of the end fitting on his assembly and then inserts the fitting and capsule into the heat radius of the unit. Within seconds, the capsule shrinks evenly around the fitting to create a perfect seal. Like traditional injection-molded caps and plugs, the intent of the Clean Seal System is to protect cleaned hydraulic lines from recontamination before they are installed onto a piece of equipment. But the Clean Seal System also endeavors to correct the problems inherent to caps and plugs, such as falling off the fittings, threads breaking (or “shearing”) off inside assemblies, and ill-fitting sizes or poor-quality products that don’t adequately seal the line. The concept was borrowed from the wine industry, which uses the technology to seal bottles. “We wanted something that not only was superior to the traditional way of capping hydraulic lines, but we also wanted to make it easier,” said Bruce Riley, CEO. The heat-sealing method proved to be just the trick. “The capsule will shrink to conform to the fitting within just seconds,” he added, “meaning that the operator doesn’t have to spend time trying to manually screw each cap on. The best part is that it’s possible for multiple assemblies to be sealed at a single time, making it that much more efficient." (Figs. 1 and 2) The only question that remained was how to get form-fitting capsules off the fitting to install onto new equipment. The answer was surprisingly simple: a pull-tab was built into the capsule, which allows mechanics to simply rip it off and dispose of it (Fig. 3).

CRACKING the

CODE OF SUCCESSFUL MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS

HOW COLOR CODING ENABLES BEST-PRACTICE LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT   Lubrication is dispensed into a color-coded transfer container with a corresponding identification label.

T

BY PATRICK FASSE, DIRECTOR OF SALES, FLUID DEFENSE

he lube room can be the most unorganized place on the plant floor. Dozens of different types of industrial lubricants may be stored in rows of plain containers that all look the same at a glance. Trying to make sense of it all can feel like detective work. Which container is for which lubricant? And which one goes in which machine? You have to either read ridiculously small type, decipher bad handwriting, or – even worse – guess. Lubrication management should never be a guessing game. If lubricant ends up in the wrong fill point, it puts your machine life and your productivity at risk. That’s why many progressive businesses have adopted a system of color coding to keep their lubricants organized. It’s the best way to keep the lube room neat and make sure every lubricant goes in the right place at the right time — every time.

THE EASE AND SIMPLICITY OF COLOR-CODED LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT

The idea behind color-coded lubrication management is simple: Everything that comes into contact with lubricant during the maintenance process is marked with a color and symbol that correspond to a particular lubricant. This means all the drums, dispensers, transfer containers, and fill points in a color-coded system have colored tags or labels of some kind. Workers can easily see which items are to be used with which lubricant and where each lubricant should be applied. Following the path of any given lubricant from storage to application is as easy as connecting the dots — or colored symbols. APPLYING LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT BEST PRACTICES

Color coding doesn’t just make your lube room look nice. It also helps maintenance workers apply a broad range of best practices to ensure the accuracy, efficiency, and safety of the lubrication process.

Color-coded lubrication management helps you do the following:

1 84

PREVENT LUBRICANT MISAPPLICATION Color-coded lubrication management systems are so intuitive that it’s nearly impossible for workers to put the wrong lubricant in a machine. Color coding helps every worker — even temps and seasonal hires — make the right decisions regarding lubrication application without having to scrutinize labels or understand the language printed on them. In a recent independent survey of 228 manufacturers1, more than 75% of respondents said they believe human error is one of the most common causes of downtime. As logic follows, color-coded lubrication application helps workers apply lubricants correctly, and thus, it is one of the best ways to keep your machines up and running.

Color-coded lubrication systems also protect the quality of your lubricants throughout the maintenance process. These systems are designed so that each drum, dispenser, and transfer container touches only one type of lubricant — establishing a single point of contact. Segregating lubricants in this way prevents problems caused by cross-contamination, including clotting, base oil separation, thermal breakdown, thinning, thickening, and the formation of hard deposits — all of which can lead to machine damage and failure. Therefore, using color coding to keep your lubricants separated helps maximize machine uptime.

FOSTER WORKPLACE SAFETY Manufacturers who color code their lubrication process automatically have cleaner, safer facilities. The color-coded labels keep everything neat and organized, with fewer spills and drips, because workers simply don’t make the errors that cause hesitation or disruptions when filling containers and applying lubricants. And fewer spills mean fewer opportunities for workplace accidents, costly fines, and safety violations.

 

SELECTING THE BEST COLOR-CODED SYSTEM

Color-coded identification labels ensure the right lubricant goes in the right place every time.

Not all color-coded lubrication management systems are created equal. When it’s time for your organization to begin researching your system options, be sure to heed the following advice:

1

BE WARY OF HOMEGROWN SYSTEMS.

It may be tempting to think you can just create your own system of color coding by using paint, colored tape, or markers. But no matter how neatly you apply the colors and draw the shapes, they won’t be perfectly consistent across all your containers. And inconsistencies lead to inefficiencies, simply because it will take your workers longer to verify that they’re using the right lubricant in the right place. This becomes especially true as the colors fade, chip, or peel over time. Plus, if using a homegrown system, you will quickly run out of colors and basic symbols, forcing you to incorporate additional labeling methods, such as using multiple basic symbols to identify lubricants, which can be extremely confusing for your workforce. In short, homegrown colorcoding systems don’t eliminate errors in the lubrication process; they often introduce more of them.

2

CONSIDER THE NUMBER OF LUBRICANTS YOU USE.

If your manufacturing operation requires only a small number of lubricants, a color-coding system with an equally small number of colors and symbols will suffice. But if your operation requires many different lubricants, a broad spectrum of colors and symbols isn’t necessarily the best option. The colors in broad-spectrum systems are often too similar to distinguish from one another, which defeats the purpose of color coding. The same is true for symbols that look too much alike. Be aware of this problem, and choose a system with enough color and shape combinations to meet your needs without confusing your workers.

3

CHOOSE A SYSTEM THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME.

More than likely, you’ll want to invest in a color-coded lubrication management system that will last for many years. For this very reason, you should select a system with fade-resistant labels so the colors your workers rely on don’t change over time. Likewise, the ideal system should incorporate durable, industrialgrade labels that won’t peel or fall off with use. And the system you choose should be one that grows with you, allowing you to add more labels as you introduce new equipment with new lubrication requirements.

AN EASY WAY TO BOOST YOUR BOTTOM LINE

Implementing a color-coded lubrication management system is a small, immediate change with big, lasting impact. More than just aesthetically pleasing, it saves your company money. Eliminating errors and cross-contamination during the lubrication process helps keep your machines up and running so your facility can stay productive. Plus, color-coded lubrication management ensures you waste less lubricant due to spills and mix-ups — and your team wastes less time trying to figure out which lubricant goes where. And finally, it helps you avoid OSHA fines. Altogether, color coding can have significant impact on your bottom line — all for little effort. The system is so intuitive, you can set it up and get started today with very little training.

ELIMINATE CROSS-CONTAMINATION

SAFEGUARD YOUR WORKFLOW Color-coded lubrication systems don’t just keep machines working well; they keep your team working efficiently, effectively, and safely, too. Specifically: • Lean Initiatives — Color coding simplifies your maintenance process, removing the confusion, guesswork, and messes that slow down workers. Plus, it helps you apply the lean poka-yoke mechanism of mistake proofing so your team can more easily maintain the quality of your entire operation. • 5S Practices — Colorcoded lubrication management helps you organize your workspace according to the 5S workplace organization methodology. The colors and symbols make it easy to sort your lubricants, set the order of your workflow, shine (or clean) the workplace, standardize the lubrication process, and sustain order in your facility. Applying these practices brings efficiency and effectiveness to your maintenance operations. • The OSHA Right-to-Know Standard — Colorcoded labels clearly communicate exactly what types of lubricants are used in your facility, as OSHA’s Right-to-Know standard requires. Plus, the labels allow room for universally understood safety symbols, when necessary, so your workers can easily see which lubricants require special care during handling.
