EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based field bus system that meets stringent real-time requirements and currently shows the highest rate of growth in terms of installed nodes in Ethernet-based field buses for industrial automation applications.
With its newly developed TopTherm fan-and-filter units, Rittal is showing that significant improvements in ventilation are still possible. The innovation is the first in the world to use diagonal technology. When installed, it ensures a far better air throughput for improved ventilation in enclosures and housings. Other convincing advantages, besides the simple, tool-free assembly, are the ease of maintenance and increased efficiency. Extensive tests haven shown energy savings of 43%.
POLARIS Touch Panel PCs with LED technology are an innovative enhancement of the existing POLARIS Panel PCs. Available in the sizes 5.7", 10.4" and 12.1", these devices have been designed for the comfortable handling of simple machines such as mixers, dryers or filling stations and for the control and supervision of complex machines such as reactors, centrifuges or ball mills. All POLARIS devices have been designed for use in zone 1 + 2 as well as in zone 21 + 22. This guarantees the habitual PC comfort also in hazardous areas. The Panel PCs are especially suitable for use in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry.
If there is a danger of falling loads on vertical axes in areas where personnel have to work, additional measures must be taken to minimise the risk of accidents. The Mauerstetten brake specialist mayr® power transmission has developed brake systems which are capable of providing safety in any critical situation occurring during vertical axes operation.
In recent years, the demand for hybrid-electric and fully electric vehicles has increased enormously. The development of such vehicles is a significantly more complex task than designing conventional cars because they incorporate many different engineering domains into a single system. At the same time, competitive pressures are forcing auto manufacturers to come up with new designs faster than ever before. The industry is turning to math-based physical modeling techniques which allow engineers to accurately describe the behavior of the components that comprise the system and the physical constraints on the system. These model equations are then used to develop, test, and refine designs very quickly, and without the expense and time required to build physical prototypes.
Ngay từ ban đầu, mọi nguyên lý trộn sử dụng trong công nghiệp dường như đều được sáng chế cho công nghệ trộn chất rắn. Tuy nhiên những chiếc máy xử lý này liên tục được cải tiến và đổi mới. Một trong những mục tiêu của cải tiến là để đơn giản hóa quy trình xử lý của các thiết bị. Ngoài ra việc cải tiến còn nhằm tăng cường những ưu điểm cho người vận hành và cải thiện các quy trình xử lý. Các kỹ sư cũng hướng tới mục tiêu tối ưu hóa chất lượng trộn và vệ sinh. Đó là khi amixon GmbH giới thiệu một phát kiến mới, cho phép xả gần như hoàn toàn sản phẩm trộn ra khỏi máy trộn mà không để lại chút cặn nào.
OPERA is CIAT’s latest range of drycoolers and air-cooled condensers. An economic solution, based on standard modules, OPERA is available in more than 4500 models, which adapt perfectly to many different applications. Whilst offering the same output, its energy efficiency is 15% better than that of previous generations. This ratio can be as much as 50% depending on options. Available power ratings go up to 1100 kW.
Alufast® aluminium screws from Arnold Umformtechnik are especially advantageous for joining magnesium components: transmission, housing, load-bearing, stiffening... Especially with material pairs exposed to thermal stress, they significantly enhance the security of threaded fastener joints. Furthermore, Alufast® aluminium screws weigh only one-third as much as equivalent steel screws. Particularly with large volumes the weight savings can amount to the equivalent of several metric tons of steel per year.
