New automatic Stäubli connector ideal for fitting in any position
17 April 2007
Stäubli’s new, fully automatic, quick release coupling for temperature control circuits on injection and blow moulding machines is ideal for fitting in awkward and confined spaces. Space is always at a premium on injection or blow moulding machines; the need to maximise throughput, reduce demoulding times and provide ready access to the moulds themselves frequently results in services on the machine such as hydraulic circuits and cooling water connections being located in awkward and restricted access positions.
The latest coupling from Stäubli, the CBI 06, is designed for just such awkward applications. The patented design does not require hand access to connect or disconnect, so connectors can be located closer together or even on a remote plate. Connection is fully automatic – just push to connect – bringing greater flexibility to the applications that are suitable for this connector, especially ‘blind’ or connections in a recessed location. The non spill, flat faced design of the CBI 06 ensures perfect sealing during connection and disconnection, no air is introduced into the circuits and any pollution to the environment through leakage is eliminated. Flow rates are maximized due to the direct turbulence-free flow of the fluid and seals are available to accommodate synthetic and mineral oils and well as water, glycol and steam. The CBI is also fully compatible with the previous Stäubli connector for these types of applications, the SPI - complete interchangeability is provided – SPI plugs fit CBI sockets and SPI sockets fit CBI plugs.
