Smarter limb lengthening with the FITBONE® systems

At the EPOS international pediatric orthopedics meeting from April 11 to 14, 2018 in Oslo (Norway), the emphasis for WITTENSTEIN intens was on treatment techniques for young patients, involving custom-made versions of the FITBONE® systems for extremity correction and lengthening.

The EPOS (European Pediatric Orthopedic Society) Annual Meeting was held this year in Oslo. Presentations on a variety of pediatric orthopedics topics and various parallel symposiums were attended by a total of round about 700 people. The options which are available for correcting extremities and treating bone defects using active implants were discussed at length. FITBONE® systems are not simply a successful method for extremity correction and lengthening; they also enable unique solutions for segment transport where the indications are more complicated indications, as two very interesting lectures at this year’s Annual Meeting clearly showed.

Custom-made versions of the FITBONE® systems

Professors Rainer Baumgart (ZEM Germany, Munich) and Franck Accadbled (Hôpital des Enfants, Toulouse University Hospital) spoke about patients who have benefited from successful treatment with FITBONE® systems following osteosarcoma or Ewing sarcoma resections. In the majority of the instances described, special custom-made versions of the FITBONE® system were used, in some cases combined with BioXpand® tumor endoprostheses (implantcast GmbH, Buxtehude, Germany). The average bone deformation of Professor Accadbled’s patients was 15.5 cm (from 8 to 24 cm). Besides treating defects as large as 20 cm, Professor Baumgart has also undertaken extensions of up to 14 cm with BioXpand in order to compensate growth-related leg length discrepancies ensuing from tumor resections. Both authors reported very good clinical and radiological outcomes. They each cited the technical reliability of the systems which were used and the avoidance of infections due to the treatment with fully implantable intramedullary nails as the biggest advantages.

Smart treatment concept for patients

Furthermore, the mostly young patients are able to perform the distraction or bone transport process themselves conveniently and in a controlled way, typically at a rate of 1 mm per day, using the handy, lightweight FITBONE® control set. This smart treatment concept establishes a significant degree of personal freedom for the patients concerned and is a positive psychological effect which additionally assists the healing process.

Very good outcomes and high reliability, even with difficult indications

Accadbled and Baumgart also provided answers to numerous questions from interested industry professionals in a series of “Meet the Expert” sessions. It was plain that treating young patients with such complex indications is likely to confront the attending physician with daunting challenges in many respects. It is therefore all the more important to have access to reliable treatment methods plus a wide range of products based on a mature technology platform. All in all, the versatile solutions featuring the FITBONE® systems and the professional exchange of ideas and experiences met with wholehearted approval.

Proven power clamping nut

With the MCA power clamping nut from JAKOB Antriebstechnik, the user has at his disposal a long-proven, widely used and economical clamping element. Without additional installation effort, this clamping technology can ensure the highest clamping forces and maximum operational reliability – and is easy to operate manually. For this only a wrench SW 17 is required. Nevertheless, it is recommended to use a torque wrench to set exact, reproducible tightening torques. The special inner life, an integrated planetary gear mechanics, multiplies the manual tightening torque.

Their durability has been proven on a specially designed test bench. They were subjected to a continuous load of 10,000 load changes and were able to confirm all expectations.

The power clamping nut MCA is based on the predecessor model MC. Externally, the changed design and the reduced external dimensions are striking first. But also in the inner life a lot has changed. The bearing of the planetary gears is now accomplished by stable claws instead of bolts. This made room for significantly larger screw threads and increased the performance range by up to 100%. The material made of tempered steel and the surface coating that protects against corrosion guarantee a long service life of the clamping elements. The tightness of the drive mechanism and splash protection could also be increased. The MCA mechanical clamping nut is maintenance-free under normal operating conditions and can be used in special versions up to 400°C.

The power clamping nuts are used in all areas of mechanical engineering where large clamping forces are required. For example, the economic clamping of press and punching tools or workpiece clamping during machining. But also in steel and jig construction there are universal application areas.

The series MCA is available with clamping screws from M12 to M64 and with clamping forces up to 200 KN in the standard program.

Kautex Maschinenbau at Chinaplas 2018

Kautex Maschinenbau will be participating in Chinaplas 2018 from April 24 to 27 at the trade show’s new venue in Shanghai. With a larger stand area, the world’s leading manufacturer of extrusion blow molding machines is responding to the increasing visitor attendance of recent years. The company will not, however, be needing much space to present its compact KCC10 MK3, which will be used to demonstrate the production of three-layer 1,000 ml bottles with a foamed middle layer.

Transition to third generation almost complete

In 2016, Kautex Maschinenbau’s introduction of the KCC20 MK3 started the gradual process of transitioning to the third generation of KCC-series equipment at its Shunde plant in Southern China, which is by now almost complete. In keeping with the trade show slogan (Setting benchmarks for high production performance), the benefits of the new KCC MK3 models include not only better accessibility and significantly quicker changeover times, but also shorter lead times. Their all-rounder status means that the machines can be used for a wide range of applications – for packaging, automotive and special applications.

Live production with foaming process
The KCC10 MK3 can be used to produce bottles in sizes ranging from 50 ml to 5,000 ml. At Chinaplas, Kautex Maschinenbau will present a live demo of a foamed bottle being produced with technology from MuCell® Extrusion. The foaming of the middle layer significantly reduces the amount of material required. With a lower carbon footprint and better thermal and insulating properties, the production method is also more environmentally friendly. The foaming process can be used for all packaging machines with continuous extrusion.

Investment in research and development
The next stop for the demo machine will be the technical center planned for Shunde Kautex, where it will be used to develop new applications. Customers in China will thus be able to benefit from the same Kautex service available from Bonn in the future. The continuous improvement of its service offering is one of the top priorities for Kautex Maschinenbau worldwide. Alongside the Bonn HQ, international locations in New Jersey and Shunde will also be available for samples and material tests.

Virtual KBS fuel tank blow molding machine
The new generation of virtual machines will also be presented at the stand. These training tools simulate production processes for various machine types and use cases in real time. The hardware consists of a compact workstation unit, two monitors, a projector and a real machine control panel. Modularization allows for a seamless transition from one series to another. KCC machines were recently added to the training tool, which already includes the KBS and KBB series.

Low-Cost Avalanche Photodiode in an M1 Package

LASER COMPONENTS has announced that its cost-effective SAH series of avalanche photodiodes (APDs) is now available in an M1 package. This is the smallest available SMD housing (Surface-Mounted Device), at only 2 mm x 1.4 mm. The new APDs will be presented at SPIE DCS in Orlando, Florida (Booth 1029).

Optimized for wavelengths of 850 nm and 905 nm, these components are mainly designed for range finding applications in which larger detectors cannot be installed due to lack of space. Consumer products are another common field of application.

Depending on the version, the diameter of the detector area is 230 μm or 500 μm. Like the SAH versions in M2 and M2F packages, these APDs feature low noise and a particularly short response time as well as operating temperatures between -40°C and +85°C.

Reliable even at high operating pressures

The GEMÜ 790 ball valve series stands out thanks to its compact yet robust design. At the same time, it is suitable for use up to a pressure rating of PN125.

Ball valves can be used in a wide variety of applications in industrial processes, and in water supply and water treatment systems in particular. One of the most efficient filtration procedures in water treatment is reverse osmosis. During this procedure, the unclean water is pressed through a semi-permeable diaphragm at high pressure. This filters unwanted substances out of the water. The differing electrolyte loads of the raw water fundamentally determine the treatment process with regard to the water quality that must be achieved. The higher the concentration of electrolytes, the higher the pressure must be in the system. Thus, the operating pressure range for ball valves in industrial waste water treatment, for example, is 60 to 70 bar; by contrast, it is between 60 to 80 bar for sea water. A ball valve which is installed in the raw water supply or clean water drain outlet must be able to sustain these demanding operating parameters in order to ensure a safe process sequence.

High operational safety due to low maintenance engineering

The highly polished and precisely manufactured GEMÜ 790 series ball fits snugly and air-tightly into the internal seal contour. A discharge slit in the seal ensures pressure relief in the valve flow. This not only reduces the seat wear but also lowers the actuating torque required to rotate the ball. This enables both cost-effective and energy-efficient system operation. The additional pressure relief hole in the ball enables pressure compensation, preventing a potential failure due to an internal build-up of pressure. Blow-out protection in the shaft ensures maximum operational safety. The antistatic device provides a permanently conductive connection between the ball and the shaft. A tongue-and-groove-style connection between the shaft and the valve body enables full earthing of the ball valve during installation in the system. This also ensures that it is safe for use in ATEX areas.

The stainless steel ball valves of the GEMÜ 790 series are designed to enable quick and easy servicing of internal wearing parts at all times. The generous valve neck extension has a top flange in accordance with EN ISO 5211. This standardized interface enables the user to fit the ball valve with various different actuators. The solid design of the body with an additional enclosed body seal enables use at pressures up to 137 bar as well as in vacuum applications. Depending on customer requirements, the ball valves are available with full or with reduced through flow.
