LOUNGES 2017 trade fair in Stuttgart

We presented our latest product range, featuring Hygienic DESIGN properties and revolutionary sealing technology, as part of the Hygienic Design Community at the recent LOUNGES 2017 trade fair in Stuttgart. The focus of the event included newly developed and patented ball head screws with safety drive form that conform to Hygienic USIT® criteria.
Innovative safety systems are crucial for hygiene-sensitive production areas. Why? Because conventional fasteners and operating parts bring with them a very high risk of contamination through germs and bacteria. Through the use of machine elements that conform to Hygienic DESIGN and Hygienic USIT® criteria, NovoNox KG provides a comprehensive safety system. It not only maintains high standards of hygiene and optimises the cleanliness levels, it also prevents machine downtimes and costly production losses.
Cavity-free stainless steel elements with safety drive form
The revolutionary 1.4404 stainless steel sealing and fastening technology is FDA-compliant and has special radii, chamfers, shape transitions and high-gloss polished surfaces. NovoNox is presenting the latest range for hygienic applications at LOUNGES 2017 – with a focus on the newly developed, patented ball head screws with safety drive (Si), available in two basic head versions and with two surface qualities.
The Hygienic DESIGN version of the ball head screws has a surface finish of 0.8 µm. As well as the high-gloss polished version, we also offer a brushed version. It is used to match brushed and brush-polished surfaces in order to ensure a consistent appearance. Ball head screws that meet Hygienic USIT® requirements are also available, and are used with a special sealing shim and washer from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. This version differs due to a modified edge on the ball head and a centring collar which is mounted under the ball head, thus ensuring the best possible centring for the sealing washer on the screw axis. This component is only available in the high-gloss polished version.
Designed for sensitive sterile areas
The special ball head screws from NovoNox KG are specifically designed for use in hygiene-sensitive machine production areas. In addition, the components are suitable for use wherever safety elements such as barriers, switches and roller buttons are used to ensure fault-free products, and settings or readjustments that may only be carried out by suitably trained personnel. “Our newly developed and patented ball head screws contribute significantly towards ensuring the operational plant safety that is documented as part of the CE declaration”, says Division Manager Jürgen Leuze. “For this purpose, the components are labelled as requested in a way that is not visible to the user.”
Finding the right tool is a must
In cases where a conventional tool cannot be used due to offset width flats, NovoNox offers the right tool for the job. This involves aluminium inserts which can be adapted with a conventional tool. The aluminium consists of an alloy in accordance with EN AW 6082, which in turn complies with EN 602 (governing aluminium in contact with food). The arrangement and size of the three width flats, as well as the connection with the special tool, ensure that the applicable size of the ball head screw (Si) can be tightened to the maximum possible tightening torque according to A4-70. In order to prevent screws and nuts from being damaged, scratch-free surface mounting of the tools – which creates a similar effect to the use of protective inserts – provides the required level of cleanliness. A spherical cap section then ensures that the side opposite the width flat always holds the flat ball head. As a result, it is not possible to build up any torque to turn the screw, even if pliers are being used.
During our three days at the trade fair in Stuttgart, visitors and prospective clients had the opportunity to find out more from our NovoNox experts about the ideal complete protection we provide, which guarantees safety and opens up entirely new possibilities for applications in hygiene-sensitive production processes.
