It's not just state-of-the-art products that are making their debut at HANNOVER MESSE 2018, some companies are also setting out their stalls for the first time at the prestigious international event. Take Eisele Pneumatics GmbH & Co. KG, for example. The resolutely analog exhibits of this specialist in high-quality solid metal connectors offers a striking contrast - and perhaps a refreshing change - to the pretty much inescapable digitization hype that is gripping industry. The focus at the company's stand is on a new rotary connector and MULTILINE E, a unique modular solution for custom configurable multiple and multimedia couplings.
The newly developed ball-bearing rotary connector - the first fully rotatable connector in the Eisele range - can be integrated anywhere where nickel-plated brass can be used and helps transfer compressed air from a rigid component to a rotating part. Designed for a working pressure range of
-0.9 to 16 bar, it is available in a straight and elbow design for external hose diameters of eight, ten and twelve millimeters. The MULTILINE E is a completely new modular system for combining compressed air, vacuum, gases, cooling water, fluids, electrics and electronics all in one connector body. Eisele wants to set new standards for tool and format part changes on industrial machines and robots. The perfectly coordinated modular design aims to ensure different hose diameters, connection types and media can be flexibly integrated into one multiple coupling.
