SEPTEMBER 2017 - Turnkey automation for SumiRiko

TANIQ has delivered a turn-key solution for automation of the design and manufacturing of high-end rubber expansion joints to SumiRiko Industry France (SRK-INF), formerly operating under the name Anvis.  

SRK-INF’s high-quality DILATOFLEX® expansion joints are a preferred product in demanding applications worldwide, such as the power-, chemical- and nuclear industry. Together with SRK-INF’s R&D team TANIQ has optimized expansion joint designs and implemented the technology platform comprising Design and FEA software in combination with automated Robotic Winding processes.

APRIL 2017 - Automated attaching and cutting of materials

Imagine that the robot operator only needs to place a mandrel, start the program, and returnswhen the product is finished. To realize this, TANIQ is now developing new systems toautomate the cutting and attaching of rubber, fiber and tape materials, such that no manual steps are required during the entire winding process. At this moment, the solution for automated cutting and attaching of rubber strips has been successfully tested and has already been supplied with the latest equipment. The solutions for cutting and attaching of reinforcement cords and wrapping tapes are on the way!

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.
