Keyence's latest product represents a technological leap. It is the first digital microscope with a CMOS camera. Already a very fast technology, CMOS has been optimised by Keyence to achieve the same image quality as that achievable with CCD cameras. It helps to increase processing speeds by a ratio of 5 to 10. All the image-processing capacities that have made the VHX Series a success are virtually instantaneous.
FRW Carobronze, a distributor specialised in special bronze alloys with high technical characteristics for machine shops, now offers the broadest range of extruded, drawn and forged aluminum bronze stock: CuAl10Ni5Fe4; CuAl9Ni5Fe4/CuAl9Ni3Fe2/CuAl11Ni6Fe6; C63000 and C63020. Its custom-shaped round, square, flat or tubular stock complies with all European and American military, aerospace and civilian standards (EN 12163/67, EN 12420, NFA, GAM, STF [DCNS], ASTM B150, AMS 4640, NFL, DIN, etc.). Most of its products are in stock or are available within one week, and all are delivered anywhere in the world within 48 hours.

What to do when the crane of your choice is no longer available? An Australian provider of overhead cranes fulfills all customer needs, even when the parameters are very particular. For this application, the challenge was to synchronize a new bridge crane with two existing ones. The German manufacturer NORD DRIVESYSTEMS configured the drives keeping in mind the end-users budgetary requirements.
Twenty years after shaking up the electrical measurement market with the DIRIS system, the first multi-measurement solution, SOCOMEC is once again leading the way with its latest technological innovation: DIRIS Digiware, a totally modular and flexible energy measurement and monitoring system
Decentralizing servo technology can bring machine and plant construction savings during installation. Two additional advantages include reduced cabinet heat loads and more straight forward drive architecture. The question arises however, which technology is better, an integrated motor/drive solution or a detached motor and drive?
At the PTC Asia exhibition (27—30 October, 2014, Shanghai) NORD DRIVESYSTEMS (hall E1, booth B1) will present drive solutions for industrial applications in a wide range of sectors. The main exhibit, a working manipulator model achieves maximum dynamics due to decentralized NORD drives. This solution is featured in palletizers manufactured by NORD customer Symach. The drive units combine IE2 energy-saving motors, highly efficient gearboxes, and intelligent motor-mounted frequency inverters from the SK 200E series, all manufactured in-house by NORD. Important additional applications include conveyor technology, pumps, and ventilators.
