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.

OCTOBER 2012 - Scorpo™ Robotics for manufacturing large bore hoses

OCTOBER 2012 - Scorpo™ Robotics for manufacturing large bore hoses

TANIQ has developed Scorpo Robotics to make large bore hoses up to 12 meters in length, and 2.5 meters in diameter. Parallel to this machine development TANIQ has developed and successfully tested the first scaled prototypes on a smaller set-up. To further optimize the reinforcement construction TANIQ is working on a mathematical model to optimize multi-layer reinforcement structures. The accurate robotic reinforcement winding enables to apply different winding angles per reinforcement layer, which enables to activate the layers more efficiently.
