The next generation of electronically controlled pneumatic pincers
Product launch of Oetiker ELK 02 - already available in Europe and Americas
For highly efficient, process reliable and force-monitored installation of clamps, ELK 02 offers a range of innovative and useful functions.
Compared to its predecessor model ELK 01, the ELK 02 control unit has been thoroughly optimized.
The ELK 02 comes with extended data storage, a capacity for 99 active program numbers. With an increased display and function keys it allows for ease of operation. The extended range of interfaces ensures that ELK 02 can be integrated in automated assemblies.
Additionally, the software has been upgraded by a range of useful functions leading to user friendly installations and allowing for precise controlling – customized for diverse Oetiker product groups. The closure detection, for example, ensures the closure of all clamps and avoids multiple closures. Furthermore, it allows for optional selection of force priority or stroke priority closures, offers the possibility to indicate achieved compression rates of the material to be clamped, as well as the indication of spring back measurements for selected products.
These and further features can be demonstrated to interested customers by our applications engineers on site. Please contact your Oetiker contact person.

Oetiker sells coupling business to TST Tamsan
Oetiker has decided to divest its compressed air coupling business to TST Tamsan.
TST Tamsan will acquire equipment, inventory and patents from Oetiker. TST Tamsan will take over the coupling business with effect from beginning of August 2012.
With this step, Oetiker, a manufacturer of connecting technologies, tightens its focus on its core business clamps, rings, installation tools and quick connectors representing the bulk of its revenues. Most of the clients of the coupling business are in industries (e.g. MRO) where Oetiker is not strongly present with its core products. Oetiker's head office is in Switzerland. The company has 1'100 employees and 21 branches in Europe, North America and Asia.
TST Tamsan is a manufacturer of quick- and multi-couplings for hydraulic, pneumatic, vacuum, gas, chemical and fluid applications. TST Tamsan's head office is in Turkey. The company has 180 employees and branches in Germany, UK and Canada. For TST Tamsan, the integration of Oetiker's coupling business represents an increase in know-how and production capacity and contributes to further expanding its product line into compressed air. This step will also ensure continuity for the customers of Oetiker’s coupling business.

Oetiker presents innovative products at Fastener Fair 2012
Oetiker was pleased to introduce exciting product offerings on the newly designed booth at the Fastener Fair in Hannover, Germany.
The presentation of the new PG 123 & 193 showed visitors the advantages of the next generation of Stepless® Ear Clamps. Thanks to the new design, PG 123 & 193 provides our customers more performance with higher radial loads and uniform compression.
A prototype of the next generation of electronically controlled installation tools was also introduced. The new features of ELK 02 leads to even more process reliability and optimized usability for verifiable installation. The “Magic eye“ feature, for example, helps to avoid multiple closures of clamps. With an extended range of interfaces, ELK 02 has more flexibility to be integrated in automated systems. ELK 02 will be launched shortly.
The participation in the fair was successful and provided valuable impulses for customer focused connecting solutions.
