Strategic Partners: Mitsubishi Electric Europe and Eplan

More integration for electrical engineering and PLC programming Transferring data from electrical engineering directly into PLC programming – this is now state-of-the-art technology with the integration of Eplan Electric P8 and GX Works2. Yet Mitsubishi Electric Europe and Eplan continue striving for more as partners in the e-F@ctory Alliance to further increase project quality and data consistency for users.

New Anybus gateway makes Modbus devices talk BACnet

The new Anybus BACnet to Modbus gateway makes it possible to connect Modbus devices to a BACnet network. The gateway handles conversion between Modbus (RTU, ASCII, and TCP) and BACnet/IP and makes each connected Modbus device appear as a BACnet compliant device on the BACnet network.


Grinding with half of the axes

At Bottero Group, KOLLMORGEN’s AKD series drives perform multiple functions With the “Titan” series, Bottero Group developed a fully automated plant for glass processing that performs bilateral grinding of pane edges. The grinder is composed of a large frame that allows the standard processing of sheets with different sizes and shapes without any operation modifications. The main objective during the design process was to create the simplest, most fully automated driving system without jeopardizing its efficiency. To achieve this aim, Bottero developed in co-operation with KOLLMORGEN a solution that is based on a single AKD servo-converter for driving two servo-motors that are not simultaneously operating.

Taken to new heights: Industrial gear units from NORD complete heavy workload at a reservoir project

Bargteheide – Swiss energy supplier Axpo is close to finishing the demanding large-scale “Linthal 2015” construction project: Switzerland’s largest hydroelectric undertaking will increase the overall output of the existing Linth-Limmern power plants from 480 MW to 1,480 MW. A new underground pumping station was created to pump water from the Limmernboden reservoir at an altitude of 1,860 m above sea level into the Muttsee lake about 600 m higher up. This elevation difference will be used to produce hydroelectric power on demand. The heart of the project in particular – the underground center for the new pumped storage hydroelectric power station – required gigantic efforts. At an extreme incline of 45 degrees and a height difference of approximately 180 m, conveyor systems in a sub-station transported 500 t of excavated material per hour, around the clock. On a second conveyor belt, the crushed material was transported up to the gravel plant where it was stored or processed for further use. For a total of three years, these conveyors were driven by NORD industrial gear units and transported approximately one million tons of material.

VHX-5000 – New Digital Microscope Eliminates Need for Focus Adjustment

The latest microscope from KEYENCE revolutionises how imaging and analysis are performed. By integrating the most recent advancements in optical and digital technologies, the VHX-5000 Digital Microscope is able to instantly capture any area in complete focus – without the need for the user to adjust focus. The VHX Series was designed to overcome the limitations of traditional optical microscopes by providing high-resolution, large depth-of-field imaging and integrated 2D/3D measurement in a system that anyone can easily pick up and operate without any specialised training.
