Hermetically Sealing Liquids Meters
A manufacturer of liquid-metering instruments faced a difficult assembly application.
The meters need to be hermetically sealed inside glass-domed, metal-based rubber-sealed housings and the
manufacturer wished to assemble them in a single machine cycle.
They had originally attempted to use a hydraulic press, for the task but, unfortunately, the extreme forces required
to form the metal bases caused the glass bezels to break.
Taumel suggested that the manufacturer should use the Orbital Forming process instead because it requires a fraction
of the force, compared with a traditional Press operation.
Taumel's Orbital Forming process forms the material smoothly and incrementally by line contact, rather than with
the single massive thrust from a press.
Because of the incremental nature of Orbital Forming, the process can be finely regulated and controlled by varying
the pressure, time, stroke depth and speed.
The relationship between these standard adjustments, can provide precise, but infinitely adjustable, control.
