The hydraulic BUP 1000 machine addresses the latest requirements of the steel industry, especially for use in new automotive applications where higher tensile strength combined with high formability has become more and more important. The machine can be used to determine the forming limit curve (FLC) and, with drawing forces up to 1000kN and a punch diameter of 100mm, meets the latest requirements of ISO 12004. The system uses digital PLC technology enabling the test to be controlled from either the Force or punch displacement measurement channel. The standard tests can be carried out and the large punch displacement and wide speed range offers a range of useful applications including small scale simulations of the complete forming process. With its remote control capability of the function display unit, and the hydraulic operation of the tool head aiding the insertion and removal of test specimens, the system offers significant and powerful benefits.

The May issue features a Preview on Europe's biggest measuring technology fair, Sensor+Test 2013. This is supplemented by a Focus on Sensors, Test & Measurement that includes product news, as well as a technical article and an interesting application. Another case study highlights the use of an RFID system in a Chinese engine manufacturing plant. Furthermore, IEN Europe has an article that asks the question Is There a Future for the PLC? . Throughout the magazine, you will also find brand new products launched at the recent HANNOVER MESSE, for example a Motor Control Center for predictive maintenance.
IEN: The motto for HANNOVER MESSE 2013 will be "Integrated Industry". In what ways will this motto be reflected...
