The Use of Vacuum in Lubricants Production
The production process of lubricants for industrial and automotive use requires vacuum for decanting liquids in large quantities and for the evaporation of the condensation accumulated during the storage phases and product transportation.

Students of Engineering, Administration, Export Sales and Manufacturing Technology regularly come to Pneumofore during their summer break to fulfil their weeks of internship at work. Internship is a great way to show students how to apply their theoretical know-how in practice; the gap between the school and work is easily bridged at young age; the rotation in different offices or production sections gives them insight in real working life. Presently we have 16 to 23 years old students in offices and production. In production, the internship students exceed 10% of the total working resources. We consider this first contact with the industry a delicate step, which we assist carefully, so that we are a preferred internship company for students of the schools and educational institutions nearby. At the end of the internship, lasting 2 to 5 weeks, Pneumofore issues a valid report of the achieved competences. In the picture is Janus Hilfiker working on a vacuum pump model V45, which was designed by his great grandfather Jakob in the 50’s, manufactured by his grandfather Roberto in 1971 and now being overhauled for the first time in 2016. Now 45 years old, this rotary vane pump shows how Pneumofore machines are designed to last longer than a human generation. This almost unbelievable, but real technological achievement, results mainly from the continuous, accurate selection and training of human resources, starting from the basic internship during school education.

Asian Longevity Criteria
Back from Propak Asia, the main packaging event in Bangkok, Thailand, we are glad to report about the impressive amount of contacts bored to waste money on screw compressors and vacuum pumps, no matter whether made in Europe or elsewhere. From India to China, the criteria of longevity is well rooted; human longevity, however also longevity for any item, from big to small, natural resources and bicycles, are included. So it comes that our machines match the local philosophy and we succeed to install important compressed air and vacuum systems. With several Pneumofore engineers presently working spread over the continent, we collect the positive feedback from our customers and consolidate our vision of Pneumofore’s future in Asia.

Swiss Quality Expectations
Supplies of batches with 20+ units to Striebig AG are regular since 2002. Compact vacuum stations consisting of receivers, filtration, connections pre-set and dedicated electric cabling serve the “vertical panel sawing machines” of Striebig in Switzerland. The vacuum holds the panel and allows sawing of the entire wood panel, without waste caused by any other clamping equipment. The collaboration works on the common ground of “Swiss Quality expectations”; in complete favour of both Striebig and Pneumofore, since we observe the come-back to proper engineering for machinery with long lasting performance, even if the initial purchasing price of our products is higher. World brands of small capacity rotary vane vacuum pumps do not differ much anymore, they are quite popular in many industrial applications. What makes Pneumofore special is the accurate testing and finishing of tailored vacuum solutions, with the same care for these 100 m3/h as we do for large systems with up to several 10.000 m3/h of vacuum capacity.

China Glass 2016 - Report
With over 20,000 visitors and nearly 900 exhibiting companies, the China Glass exhibition, held from 11 to 14 April 2016 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC), confirmed itself as a must-attend meeting point for the glass industry in South East Asia. As leading supplier of centralized systems for the generation of vacuum and compressed air in glassworks around the globe, Pneumofore participated at the event with its local partner Ninesun Consulting to present the company’s latest innovations and product solutions for hollow glass sector, which include the UV100 vacuum pump and the A400 air compressor with 315 kW for pressures from 2,5 to 10 bar(g). Pneumofore is consolidating its presence in the Chinese glass manufacturing industry, with several projects to serve key customers oriented versus modern, environmental-friendly technology.

Improved Lubrication for better Performance 
The casting for the housing of the air ends that fits the new A150 air compressor and the UV24 vacuum pump is well defined. Presently we analyse precisely how to optimize the machine efficiency at different pressure levels. No lubrication pump is found in a traditional Pneumofore rotary vane machine; the oil circuit is kept “active” for cooling and lubrication by using the machine internal pressure differences. The picture shows the newly designed UV24 vacuum pump with vertical layout. The lubrication pipes have singular flow settings to inject the exact amount of coolant, depending on the operational value that can vary from 0.5 mbar(a) to 40 bar(g). Like this, every air-end housing has a different machining procedure, precisely designed for a specific application.

Down to 0,48% Warranty Cost in 2015
In Pneumofore, continuous innovation comes from our people, a strong team of dedicated employees, each one with his own specialization and know-how. The human factor is a huge contribution to the way we do business and a key element in our production processes, which are not strongly automatized. Having so much hand-work involved in our assembly procedure, we must keep a strict quality control and machine testing sequence, to avoid any risk of human mistakes. These accurate checks make sure that our machines are delivered fault-free. As a measure of our production quality, at Pneumofore we traditionally divide the total cost of warranty by the yearly turn over. In 2015, this indicator was reduced to a very low 0,48% value, which means that hardly any customer asked a warranty replacement during the last year. We are extremely glad for this result, which reflects our passion for continuous improvements towards ever-higher quality standards, and strengthens our image as a manufacturer of highly reliable machines for the lowest environmental impact.

As a leading supplier of centralized vacuum and air systems for the can industry, Pneumofore will participate in #EuroCanTech2016 , the technical conference and exhibition for the metal packaging industry that will be held in Berlin, Germany, from 4 to 6 April. Eng. Daniel Hilfiker, President and Owner of Pneumofore, will be among the keynote speakers of the event to demonstrate the advantages of centralized vacuum and compressed air supply in can lines worldwide with the presentation ‘No Cans without Vacuum’ on April 5th at 11:00 AM. Alongside the technical conference, Pneumofore will welcome the conference attendees at the concurrent tabletop exhibition. With references such as Rexam, Ball, Can Pack, Crown Cork, United Can and many more, Pneumofore ensures top pneumatic expertise to the global can industry.
