First roll grinding machine for aluminum rolling mills using CBN technology

New grinding technology cuts machining time by half

First roll grinding machine for aluminum rolling mills using CBN technology

The GEORG ultragrind.50 machine includes a high-precision roll measuring system

At the Aluminium 2018 show in Düsseldorf, GEORG is going to introduce its new ultragrind roll grinding machine for aluminium rolling mills. The innovative feature of this machine is the CBN technology. The machine achieves grinding times up to 50 percent shorter than those needed with conventional grinders, while achieving a superior surface quality and longer roll life times.

So far, cubic boron nitride (CBN) cutting tools have only been used for grinding rolls used in steel rolling mills. For Salzgitter Flachstahl AG, GEORG manufactured the world“s first CBN roll grinder in use in a roll shop of a hot rolling mill – where it has proved highly successful.

GEORG is now also introducing this technology to the aluminum industry:

The combination of CBN grinding, measuring during the grinding process and the use of a Siemens 840 D sl grinding control system adapted to the CBN technology achieves grinding times up to 50 percent shorter than other grinders used so far.

In 2019, GEORG is going to deliver the first CBN grinding machine to be used in the aluminum sector: GEORG is manufacturing an ultragrind 50 for the roll shop of the new ELVAL rolling mill near Athens in Greece. The machine will grind back-up and work rolls weighing up to 63 tons, with diameters of up to 1,600 mm and widths of up to 6,500 mm fully automatically.

Dr. Wieland H. Klein, Head of GEORG“s machine tools division, explains where he sees the overall economic benefit for the customer: „Our new machines come with ultrasonic, eddy current and surface wave systems for integrated crack inspection. This ensures that the rolls are not ground any deeper than absolutely necessary. The advantage for the customer are shorter machining times, longer roll live times and, last but not least, cost savings.“

The machine for ELVAL will be part of the plant-wide process network, as all measurement data acquired during the grinding process will be recorded and transferred to the host computers.

EGC upholds declaration of invalidity with respect to a design

EGC upholds declaration of invalidity with respect to a design

EGC upholds declaration of invalidity with respect to a design

In a ruling from March 14, 2018, the General Court of the European Union (EGC) upheld a declaration of invalidity with respect to a design. The reason: the design had already been made publicly available before its registration.

A design encapsulates a product“s appearance; its shape, its pattern, its colour. Registering a design serves to protect the design itself as well as the work put into it from counterfeiting. We at the commercial law firm GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte note that in order for a design to be registered it needs to be distinct from other designs that are already well-known. The General Court of the European Union recently upheld a declaration of invalidity with respect to the registration of a design because it had already been made available to the public prior to its registration (Az.: T-651/16).

According to a regulation of the European Union, a Community design is capable of being protected if it is new and has individual character. A design is deemed not to be new if, among other reasons, it was made publicly available prior to the 12 months preceding the date of priority claimed. An exception is that the relevant professional circles within the EU could not have been aware of it.

In the instant case, a US company had applied in November of 2004 to have a Community design registered for shoes and in doing so claimed priority from a patent application submitted in the USA on May 28, 2004.

In 2013, a French company applied to have the design declared invalid on the basis that it was not new. It argued that the design in question had already been made available to the public prior to May 28, 2003. As such, it was claimed that the design had been known to the public for more than the 12 months prior to the patent application. In 2016, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) declared the design invalid on account of its lack of novelty.

The EGC upheld the decision. It ruled that the design had been made available to the public prior to May 28, 2003. The Court went on to note that it was not necessary for the disclosure to have taken place within the EU.

A design is distinct from a protected trademark. It is possible for trademark rights to be violated even if there is merely the potential for confusion with the protected product. Lawyers who are experienced in the field of intellectual property law can offer advice.

Milling machine for aluminium plates sets new standard

Highly automated system cuts machining time by more than 30 percent.

Milling machine for aluminium plates sets new standard

The new machine mills the surfaces of up to 3,000-mm-wide aluminium plates.

At the Aluminium 2018 show in Düsseldorf, GEORG is going to introduce its new portal-type milling machine – GEORG ultramill – for high-precision aluminium plates. With an accuracy of surface parallelism of +/- 0.05 mm achieved by this machine, GEORG is setting a new standard. At the same time, production throughput increases significantly as GEORG has doubled the machining speed and implemented a high degree of automation compared to machines generally in use so far.

The new machine mills the surfaces of up to 3,000-mm-wide aluminium plates with a unique precision of surface parallelism. While +/- 0.1 mm used to be the industry standard, the new machine achieves an accuracy of 0.05 mm. In a single run – without rough and finish machining – it provides a surface roughness Ra between 0.28 and 0.4 µm.

With milling speeds of up to 4,000 mm/min and feed rates of up to 60 m/min, machining times are more than 30 percent shorter than those of conventional machines. This is enabled, among others, by the extraordinarily high milling unit drive power of 200 kW.

Also the high degree of machine automation has contributed to the marked increase in throughput: The plates are automatically fed into the machine, held firmly down by a vacuum clamping table, automatically turned over when the top side has been milled and again held down automatically by the vacuum clamping table while the other side is being milled.

Dr. Wieland Klein, Head of GEORG“s machine tools division, has already received feedback from users of the new machine. „First users of the machines have been reporting dramatic reductions in machining and non-productive times. And the product quality has become much better. Our preloaded and backlash-free, guideways guarantee highest precision and long-time accuracy of the machine.“

GEORG measures the plate thickness in three tracks by means of laser triangulation. The integrated GEORG Maintenance System (GMS) continuously monitors the complete machine, among others also the tool wear. The machine data is transferred to the host computer, linking the machine with the plant-wide process network.

At the trade fair, GEORG will also showcase a new portal-type milling machine that machines all sides of aluminium slabs with the slabs having to be turned only once during the process. Also this machine excels in terms of precision and provides very short machining times.

WORTLAND - language school that will give you confidence in speaking correctly as well as in understanding others" dialects and ways of speaking

Language is a creative feature of all mankind. The languages of our world are a complex system in which sounds and characters or letters are connected to build words which become units that create a sentence. Our languages are dynamic and ever changing, but the main purpose is always to communicate with each other. Dialects provide an additional challenging element in this complex mixture. Language is our means of expressing our feelings and our thoughts, a unique system of communicating which is unique to our human species. We interviewed Carmen Maria Beck (CMB), the owner of the language school Wortland in Munich. She is an expert in language, communication and dialects, who offers us valuable insights.

IW: Communication is not always easy. What are the most common pitfalls?

CMB: Whoever needs to communicate, whether professionally or in their private lives, may well have to deal with dialects and accents which are quite foreign to them. This is one of the first barriers to effective communication. Supposedly, most are able to speak the prevailing language, yet it is a challenge to understand regional accents and to be able to communicate with those in very different regions.

IW: You are saying that communication difficulties do not only originate in speaking with foreigners, but within your own language and your own country?

CMB: Indeed. Dialects and accents can be enchanting and fun, but not always helpful when we are navigating waters outside our home territory.

My father was a teacher who witnessed the difficulties dialects can bring. He took his class from the Schwabian part of Bavaria on a school outing to Munich, a mere 100 km away. A resident of Munich asked where they were from, as not one word the youngsters spoke was comprehensible to him. Were they from Holland or from Switzerland? The Munich resident was astounded to learn that the class lived less than an hour away. If these youngsters looked for a job and were only able to speak their dialect, they would be limited to a small area of some 50 km in which their way of speaking would be understandable. Within their own country and their own language!

IW: This sounds like a situation which many of us have experienced.

CMB: Regional differences in language need not always lead to massive difficulties in understanding. There are many degrees of variation from the primary language of a country, varying from accent to vocabulary to differing sentence structures and idioms. Even minor variations may, however, cause misunderstandings. The bakery server who expects to hear the local dialectical form of „pretzel“ may not understand what the customer means when they use their own local expression for the same item. The syllables which are spoken simply do not have the intended meaning to him or her. Accents from completely different languages in other countries are even more challenging. A French speaker may receive quite a surprising bakery item due to the server“s clueless interpretation of his or her pronounced accent. Obviously, it is essential to pay attention to clear standard pronunciation, as well as to be aware of the ways the local dialect differs from the most common form of the language. Those who are unfamiliar with the region are well advised to enquire of the locals as to their form of pronunciation. This can be rewarding, both in getting to know the residents and in learning about their culture.

IW: How can dialect then be brought into alignment with the prevailing language of the country?

CMB: In order to be able to pronounce words properly, it is vital to hear the words properly. Only by hearing the differences is it possible to reproduce the unfamiliar sounds. This, of course, takes practice and awareness. Each situation determines whether a dialect is a sign of cultural identity or a disruption in communication. Ideally, we should be able to adjust our speech to whatever the situation calls for. My own regional way of speaking is suitable for my family members and with those who come from my region. Yet business situations with those from other areas require me to speak clearly in a way they can best understand, with a mere trace of my original dialect. Training in clear communication need not aim to eliminate our regional twang so that we all sound the same. An accent which does not interfere with getting our message across can be charming, distinctive and a natural part of our personality.

IW: How can the professional who wants to be successful in their career best deal with accents and dialects in the various regions they are responsible for?

CMB: Of course, speakers of strong dialect who do not adjust their way of speaking will be restricted in their careers if they plan to do business outside their own region. Research has shown that northern Germans view the slower, more modulated way of speaking of southern Germans as an indication of the slowness of southern German intellect. Correspondingly, southern Germans view the lack of these qualities in the faster northern German speech as a sign of arrogance and dominance. Thus, those who are professionally active in the whole country should take care to use a standard version of the language which will not excite biased reactions to regional differences. Naturally, those who are at ease with their own regional identity and who project confidence and authenticity will be taken seriously by their business partners. Dialect may be a part of who we are, yet it has its limits. Even politicians with strong regional accents have reduced them to a level which is slightly distinctive, but not foreign or disruptive.

IW: What is your advice, drawn from your many years of experience, for those who must speak with, or in front of, others?

CMB: If they want to avoid misunderstandings and avoid making a bad impression, a training in dealing with dialects and regional variations would be important. The skills required to show their language and social competence can be practised and learned. They can learn how to distinguish sounds and how to produce the right sounds to be effective and successful in their communication. Rhetoric and attention to proper speaking is not only necessary for actors, but for anyone who needs to speak clearly and forcefully to persuade others in their profession. It is best to start right away to become familiar with the prevailing language as well as to have a few regional expressions on call for specific situations. Bavarians and Tyrolleans alike love to hear a beloved expression which is meaningful to them. However, if the dialect is misrepresented, it is better to remain in the standard form of the language. Nothing is worse than a bad imitation of the original. The most important thing is to have the confidence to take advantage of professional help. The one language that all people love best is the language they understand best!

Thank you, Carmen Maria Beck, for your insights in the world of languages!

BGH on managing directors“ liability for competition violations

BGH on managing directors“ liability for competition violations

BGH on managing directors" liability for competition violations

Managing directors may be liable for their company“s violations of competition law. Having said that, the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH), Germany“s Federal Supreme Court, has severely limited managing directors“ liability (Az.: I ZR 242/12).

Under earlier case law, the liability of managing directors in the event of competition violations was interpreted more broadly. Liability was a serious prospect even if the managing director became aware of competition violations committed by employees but made no effort to stop them. In a ruling from June 18, 2014, the BGH distanced itself from this precedent. In doing so, we at the commercial law firm GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte note that it significantly reduced the scope of managing directors“ liability for violations of competition law.

According to this ruling, managing directors shall only be personally liable for unfair trading practices if they were either actively involved or ought to have prevented the competition violations because of an affirmative obligation to act pursuant to the general principles of tort law. The BGH held that a managing director“s status as an executive body and general responsibility for business operations do not by themselves give rise to a duty on his or her part towards external third parties to prevent violations of competition law. However, personal liability shall still apply if the managing director personally commits or orders the competition violation in question.

While the managing director“s duty to manage the business in a prudent manner was said to encompass ensuring that legal infringements such as competition violations do not occur, the BGH went on to say that this duty exists only in relation to the company and not external third parties. In the case of general liability, this would impose an almost incalculable risk on the managing director.

This judgement does not fundamentally preclude personal liability on the part of managing directors in the event of competition violations but rather limits its scope. Liability on the part of a managing director requires that the competition violation be based on conduct that can be blamed on the managing director. By way of example, the BGH cited unlawful use of a company name or a company“s general approach to advertising and marketing, matters which would normally be decided at an executive level by managing directors.

It is possible for managing directors to be faced with liability vis-à-vis their company. Lawyers who are experienced in the field of company law can serve as an expert point of contact when it comes to issues pertaining to managing directors“ liability.

Prototyping for an assured process conversion

From brazing and welding processes to efficient forming processes

transfluid has expanded its prototyping department significantly (Source: transfluid)

With all types of tubing systems, the technique used for connecting the tubes plays an important role, no matter which sector you look at, as first of all it allows you to produce certain products and also to achieve the required high quality. Another crucial aspect of the connection techniques is the nature of the connecting components. These are still often welded or brazed on. transfluid Maschinenbau GmbH has developed forming solutions as a more effective and cheaper alternative, which make even complex geometries in connection technology possible.

Tests: forming geometries replace machined components
There was a need for testing facilities that could provide evidence that a component can be made using forming technology. Using the idea of „learning by doing“ it is possible to eliminate the risks by running appropriate tests. To be able to do that, the Solutions-Team at transfluid has increased its manufacturing and production area and re-designed their prototyping department. „We are seeing an increasing need among our customer for this testing. We build up the evidence through targeted tests, showing that components that in the past were machined, and therefore expensive, can now be produced through technical forming of geometries“, says Stefanie Flaeper, managing director at transfluid. The prototyping team keeps a close eye on extreme shapes, but also on specific materials, which are often found in weight-reducing builds in the automotive industry, in order to improve processes in collaboration with our clients.

Cutting, bending, forming
In this case the focus is to create a prototype that is part of the whole process. During these comprehensive tests, the tubes can be cut without generating chips, bent and also formed, all as per customer request. Therefore, all the necessary high-tech systems from transfluid are available in the testing department: an automated machine for orbital cutting, a right-/left-hand bending machine, a robot (in order to bend components after the forming, with modified robots, as per requirements) and various systems for tool-dependent axial forming or also tool-independent CNC-rolling forming. The CNC-controlled rolling tube forming in particular can be introduced with great efficiency and impressive results.

The component is adapted to meet the client“s exact requirements, both technically, visually and according to the technical drawings. Before any test is started the technical department at transfluid will choose a range of materials, which will then be validated in the tests. By doing so, the client“s own production units remain productive in the meantime and moreover, their skilled colleagues will remain completely available and the entire prototyping process remains in the hands of experienced transfluid engineers, as Stefanie Flaeper points out: „We make our know-how, our machines and our engineers available to our clients. That way, their workflow remains uninterrupted, while we deliver the results of the process optimization in parallel.“ If the tested component complies with all functionality requirements and is inspected and approved by the customer, the customer will receive the prototype, as well as all the data for the forming modifications. The client can then verify in his own assembly processes, whether the changes in the manufacturing process still meet the requirements to the full and is able to initiate the optimization with confidence.
