Hypertherm, a manufacturer of advanced metal cutting systems, is expanding its line of Centricut brand performance consumables for Kaliburn Spirit and ProLine plasma cutting systems. The consumables, designed for stainless steel cutting while using air as the plasma gas, last an average of 20 % longer than OEM original consumables. This longer life is due in part to better cooling resulting from Hypertherm’s patented CoolFlow nozzle technology.
Up to now, the intermediate transmission housing for the Actros truck from Daimler has been produced in permanent mold casting. A support arm in steel needed to be fitted to the part in addition. The engineers at Daimler AG have succeeded together with the Martinrea Honsel project team in optimizing the design of the part such that the support arm to attach the transmission to the chassis can now be cast on to it rather than mounted separately.
