Providing strong permanent threads in thin panel sections, the new Type AEKM Atlas MONEL blind threaded inserts with high corrosion resistance from Penn Engineering are ideally suited for attachment applications where equipment or components will be exposed to especially harsh conditions. Made of high-strength nickel-copper alloy 400, they additionally feature a minimized-profile head allowing for near-flush installations without requiring special hole preparation (such as countersinking or dimpling). The inserts can be installed quickly and easily anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field using Atlas Spin-Pull, Pull-to-Pressure, or Spin-Spin tools. An added benefit is their capability to accommodate applications where only one side of a panel is accessible for hardware installation. In these cases, the inserts can be installed from the “front” side and a single mating screw completes final component attachment.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
