September 2016 -TANIQ adds FEA Studies to portfolio

Many manufacturers are interested in using FEA to analyze and improve their products, but don’t have the required expertise in-house. TANIQ has used their expertise of rubber, reinforcement layers and FEA modelling to developed a FEA Toolbox especially for reinforced rubber products. Using FEA instead of, or before developing and testing of prototypes saves significant R&D costs. Ultimately, this creates new possibilities to improve your product performance and quality. Typical load cases for reinforced rubber products are:

  • Burst pressure prediction 
  • Damage propagation
  • Analysis of (local) stress concentrations
  • Stiffness responses/ load displacement curves

MAY 2016 - TANIQ 10 year anniversary

MAY 2016 - TANIQ 10 year anniversary

TANIQ started 10 years ago with Technology to optimize cord reinforcement structures. Since then we have learned a great deal about the design and production of reinforced rubber products, from small size turbo hoses for trucks to heavy multi-layer dredge-/ mining-/ marine-/ discharge-hoses. Today, we use all our technology and experience to assist manufacturers with developing better products, and automating their design and production processes using smart software and flexible robotics. We have successfully applied our technology to Lifting-bags, Pipe-plugs, Expansion joints, various Hoses and are working on many other Applications together with our customers in different industries worldwide. The first ten years have been a great journey with many challenges and successes. Together with our customers we have been changing traditional methods.

FEBRUARY 2015 - 2015 demos TANIQ: Design Software & Scorpo™ Robotics

In September/October 2015 TANIQ will give demonstrations of their latest Design Software and Scorpo™ Robotics. Demonstrations are planned for the design and production of pipe-plugs, rubber expansion joints and dredging/mining hoses. Other applications can be added on request. During the demonstrations we will show the possibilities of using TANIQs technology to optimize your own products and automate your production.

JANUARY 2015 - Possibility to optimize product design with FEA

JANUARY 2015 - Possibility to optimize product design with FEA

TANIQ has continued their R&D efforts for development of the FEA Toolbox. The FEA model enables to simulate product performance (e.g. burst pressure, axial and lateral movements, expansion ratios, etc.)for different load cases. A unique feature of TANIQs technology is that the FEA model is consistent with the software design and the actual product, resulting in reliable simulations. Using the FEA model for product development before starting with physical prototyping can save significant time and money.

MAY 2014 - Trelleborg and Lansas present pipe-plugs at IFAT

MAY 2014 - Trelleborg and Lansas present pipe-plugs at IFAT

Two of TANIQ’s customers, Trelleborg and Lansas (NL), presented their new pipe-plugs last week at the IFAT trade show in Germany. TANIQ has assisted both companies with the development of their pipe-plugs. With each manufacturer having their specific know-how and design requirements, this has resulted in two unique pipe-plugs with unique selling points. The Scorpo™ Robotics production equipment they use is similar, but they both have customized design software to make designs according to their specifications. Their different pipe-plug designs clearly demonstrate the ability to design unique products, while working with the same TANIQ technology.    

Contact Trelleborg and Lansas for more information on thier unique pipe-plugs.

APRIL 2014 - TANIQ develops own FEA module

APRIL 2014 - TANIQ develops own FEA module

TANIQ is developing FEA software to further optimize your product designs. It enables to calculate the stresses in products at different loading cases. You can for example: calculate burst pressure at ,maximum elongation and compression, predict shape deformations (e.g. expansion ratios) at different internal pressures, calculate end thrust forces, etc. The retrieved information can be used for optimizations of the product design or as input for the end-users and system engineers.TANIQ’s FEA module creates an output file, which can be imported into commercial available FEA packages such as Abaqus.

SEPTEMBER 2013 - New Trelleborg pipe-plug with TANIQ technology

SEPTEMBER 2013 - New Trelleborg pipe-plug with TANIQ technology

Trelleborg’s new pipe-plugs are made with TANIQ’s design software and Scorpo™ Robotics equipment. This has resulted in a lighter and more flexible plug, which is manufactured with high consistency. An additional advantage is also that it looks very good! To promote their new pipe-plugs Trelleborg has launched the website www.the-new-standard.com .Go to the website to order your plugs or just to watch the cool promotion video!

MAY 2013 - Sneak peak of the new Scorpo Robotics demonstration line

MAY 2013 - Sneak peak of the new Scorpo Robotics demonstration line

As you might have read in the previous newsletter we are constructing a second Scorpo unit for demonstration purposes at TANIQ. We are now testing the programs so we are ready for demonstration. This will be the latest line of equipment (full automation of all material application processes + automatic tool changes). Demonstrations for manufacturers will take place in June and July. You can contact us to reserve your demonstration.

APRIL 2013 - Articles in European Rubber Journal and Rubber & Plastics News

TANIQ's latest developments were picked up by Louise McHenry from European Rubber Journal and Bruce Meyer from Rubber & Plastic News. In their articles they write about TANIQ's supply of a complete production solution including robotic production equipment and design software. Furthermore, attention is paid to the new Scorpo Robotics set-up at TANIQ for giving production demonstrations to customers. For more information you can read the RPN article here.

MARCH 2013 - New Scorpo™ Robotics demonstration unit at TANIQv

TANIQ is investing in a second robotic production unit for customer prototypings and demonstrations. In addition to the existing prototyping set-up the latest version of Scorpo Robotics will be added. This will have the exact specification as one of the production lines that TANIQ offers. This investment is a first step towards meeting the increased demand. The benefits for our customers are that they can see live verification of the process and production times before they purchase their production unit. In addition to this, this step enables us to provide our customers with shorter delivery times. The set-up will be operational in the beginning of June. You are very welcome for a demonstration.
