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.

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!
