New in the FEBA AUTOMATION modular system: patented stroke limiter with setting scale
Gripping plier units from FEBA AUTOMATION are particularly suitable for the demoulding of large, undercut injection-molded parts, such as, for example, in bumpers used in automobile production. The pneumatic double stroke ensures precise positioning and optimized component placement.
The adjustment of the demoulding strokes is now considerably simplified by the new stroke limiter HBDH with setting scale from the FEBA AUTOMATION gripper construction kit. The polyamide component is characterized by very low own weight and contributes to the reduction of commissioning times. The patented stroke limiter is manufactured by SLS production technique and is available for the GZE25 and GZE32 series.

FEBA AUTOMATION presents at K2016 "missing link" of two gripper systems
FEBA-FLEX-LIGHT and rectangular system now easily combined
To release well-tried things is hard everyone. This is not different with the construction of EOAT. The so-called square-system has established itself in the market - whether in removal grippers, pick-and-place applications or cutting devices. FEBA AUTOMATION has now developed to the KKX series a compound which allows the user to combine the advantages of the round with those of the rectangular system.
The FEBA-FLEX LIGHT modular system of FEBA AUTOMATION is a cost-effective gripper system on round profile-based, which is characterized particularly by its light weight, easy installation and quick adaptability. The round structure is open, which means hat further components can be added subsequently. Despite the obvious advantages and the steadily increasing demand, a portion of the gripper constructors does still hesitate to completely switch over. Therefore FEBA AUTOMATION has developed, in accordance of the market requirements, the clamping pieces of KKX series, which for the first time enable the integration of the variability of the circular system in the rectangular system. This new product combines the advantages of both systems. The form-fit by "embracing" the APX-profile guarantees a high force. In addition, components such as e.g. Gripper fingers and grippers can be mounted directly.
Aline Urban as "very good trainee 2016" honored by the IHK Arnsberg
On 29.09.2016 our former trainee Aline Urban was honored for her excellent final examination of her training as a businesswoman for office management. For this purpose, the Arnsberg Chamber of Industry and Commerce invited to the Jagdschloss Herdringen. After a photo session the 51 trainees and 15 graduates from the HSK received an honorary certificate and a small present from Mr. Leiße (a member of the plenum as well as the Vocational Training Committee of the IHK Arnsberg). In a "get-together" the graduates were able to exchange their previously collected professional experience.
FEBA AUTOMATION - social commitment for children
With the help of Turnbar by Eiden & Wagner Metallbau GmbH FEBA AUTOMATION had come up with a special fundraising campaign on the occasion of the inauguration of their new premises . At an outdoor horizontal bar a chin-up contest was organized, where every visitor of the event could participate. For each chin FEBA AUTOMATION donated one euro to charity. A proud donation was collected thanks to the active participation and the athletic performance of our visitors. Which afterwards was then still generously rounded. Since the owner couple Bartlewski are especially social commitment to children at heart, two regional charities for children were presented.
Nicole Binnewitt from Children's Hospice Balthasar in Olpe as well as Maria Störmann-Deppe and Petra Schulte from the Kinderburg in Schmallenberg were currently pleased to receive the donation checks.
SWTAL2016 - many visitors and great interest
2450 visitors were counted at the 16th Südwestfälische technology exhibition in Lüdenscheid this year. For FEBA AUTOMATION the fair participation was again a great success - many customers and prospects found their way to our booth to be informed of new developments and the FEBA AUTOMATION modular system. Particularly popular was the new product GZ12-65-65, a gripping plier with rubber jaws. Visitors stated it will expect high acceptance particularly due to its high heat resistance.

Podium for WS Racing
On Thursday, 26 May 2016, the WS Racing team made its way to the famous 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. The expectations of the team, again to achieve a similarly good result as in previous years, could well be fulfilled. At the end of the 24-hour race on May 29, 2016 WS Racing could occupy the 3rd and 5th place in the Cup Astra class.
The weekend at the Nürburgring was already quite mixed for racers of WS Racing teams at the start. Even in the pre-qualification, there were technical problems repeatedly. The Opel Astra OPC Cup with the start number 253 had just before the race even an electronics problem that could be solved but thanks to the professional use of the technicians seconds before the start. Even during the race drivers Ralf Lammering, Bernhard Henzel, Stephan Kuh and Jean-Luc Behets struggled with adverse incidents: Twice the car was shot down by an Audi R8. Fortunately, the race both times could be continued without any major difficulties. Finally, the pilots were able with their offensive driving style even fight his way back to 3rd place. In total ranking, the team was able to record the 57th Place.
The second race car, piloted by Fritz Rabensteiner, Tatjana Hanser, Christoph Hewer and Uwe Stein, starting with the number 254. The team was constantly on the road and kept as much as possible from collisions out. Only once it was pressed against the guardrail. The weather conditions made to provide: After one hour, the race had to be interrupted for about three hours due to rain and strong hail. At the end of the team in the Cup Astra class landed on 5th place in the overall standings at the 87th rank.
Team boss Thorsten Willems sees the team performance this emotion-rich race very positive, as the team already went back to the podium for the third time in a row after the class win in 2014 and, 2015. Honor and gratitude not only the entire team to all sponsors, partners and supporters.

Turbulent start to the season of the VLN
At the first race of the VLN, the 62nd ADAC Westfalenfahrt, the WS Racing Team starts with little luck in the season. Even when training the Blue Cup 2 crashed so strong that the front bumper and a fender had to be replaced and only belatedly could start the race. Cup 1 with driver Jens Rarbach lost already after a short course of the race at a blameless collision with another car, the rear bumper and was later damaged again by a bump of another race participant at the driver's door. That the two Opel Astra OPC have ever seen the goal and could enter the first points of the season, only thanks to a huge team effort of drivers and technicians was possible. The disappointment over this bumpy start was Jens Rarbach clearly noted: "It was clear that we can not expect too much in this new competition with a high proportion of professional drivers and with the new car, but I had hoped for more today. Our Astras were well adjusted and were actually super ride. But we must now look ahead and prepare for the next race."
Preparations for season start
The start of the season in 2016 at the Endurance Championship Nürburgring is imminent. The team WS Racing presented a few days ago before the finished race car. FEBA AUTOMATION will be seen in prominent placements on the vehicles. First test drives are already done. But until the first race on April 2, the technical team will have a lot to do.

FEBA AUTOMATION: Why have you changed your team?
Jens Rarbach: Because it is simply a climb for me. It is more professional. The whole racing league is professional. We have professional racer, therefore the competition is much stronger. What particularly excites me: the cars are identical, the technical requirements are the same for all - that means, it really depends on the driver.
FEBA AUTOMATION: New competition, new team, new car - what do you expect of the upcoming season?
Jens Rarbach: At this kind of endurance race a car is shared by a team of drivers. It is important that each driver is fast but also constantly driving. My new team WS Racing will have three good drivers run one car and will also give the best possible technical support in order to get top-placements. My aim is to get one of the top places even in the first season. Finishing in the top five is possible. You also get in the VLN much more attention.
