The new docking frames of the Phoenix Contact Heavycon product family enable the time-saving installation and maintenance of push-in systems and other applications in which the interfaces cannot be seen.
TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) has extended its range of bipolar DC high-voltage contactors to include the new HVC43 (B88269X3**0C011) series. These products complete the existing range by offering continuous currents from 150 A DC to 250 A DC and operating voltages of up to 1000 V DC. The contactors are available in 12 V or 24 V coils with a power consumption of 6 W.
The manufacturing industry holds a key position in the life science sector. After all, when manufacturing sensitive products that come into direct contact with people, reliable system components are an absolute must. Right in the thick of it: High-tech components from SCHUNK. They meet the requirements for manufacturing quality and reliability. For more than 30 years, the family-owned company has been supplying customers from the medical technology and laboratory automation sectors with standard products and customized solutions.
Each winter, the UK is battered with a barrage of storms that lead to all manner of problems for utilities operators, from power outages to water asset damage. Due to the predictability of seasonal flooding, effective automation systems are proving an increasingly vitalinvestment to help water operators keep assets functional.
NSK has used its extensive problem-solving capabilities and experience to provide mines and quarries with the solution to a long-standing problem. Many conveyors operating in the hostile environment of a mine suffer from the premature failure of bearings on the head, tail, drive and tensioning pulley. There are numerous reasons why overcoming this issue has proved challenging over the years, but NSK has come up with a solution that improves service life by up to 20 times without comprising any other requirements.
With the launch of its LiDAR-LOC 2 solution, SICK has made it easy to teach mobile machines virtual paths in order to enhance, expand, or replace physical floor-based guidance systems that use taped lines or 2D-codes.
Screw-on strain sensors frequently provide a clever alternative to force measurement. Particularly for large forces, they are significantly more cost-efficient than force sensors.Additionally, they allow different force ranges to be covered by just one sensor and can be integrated quickly and easily into existing machines and systems.
