Renishaw, the global engineering technologies company, builds on its existing functionally safe (FS) portfolio by introducing two new encoders for both linear and rotary applications — RESOLUTE™ FS with BiSS® Safety absolute open optical encoder system, and TONiC™ FS incremental open optical encoder system.
In co-operation with the WBA (World Bearing Association), NSK has developed a new app to help combat the ongoing issue of fake bearings. In recent years, the company has been working closely with the WBA, JBIA (Japan Bearing Industry Association) and authorities around the world to enforce law and order on counterfeiters, and eliminate bogus bearings from the marketplace.
HARTING Applied Technologies and VMR GmbH & Co. KG rely on 3D Systems’ Cimatron integrated CAD/CAM software to enhance data integration through the entire mold-making process, improve tools quality, reduced scrap and accelerate delivery time.
In order to separate, printed-circuit boards are first scored and then any uneven or rough surfaces are milled. For this purpose, LHMT GmbH develops highly specialized tools that fully automate not only the actual scoring and milling process, but also the loading and unloading of the sensitive circuit boards. For safe, gentle handling of these parts, LHMT turned to J. Schmalz GmbH. Schmalz was able to implement a reliable gripper solution thanks, in part, to their new NBR ESD suction cups.
