High availability is one of the primary criteria for stacker cranes deployed in automated storage and retrieval systems. Downtime due to breakdowns is unacceptable as material flow becomes interrupted, which in turn means production lines or customers (in the case of finished good warehouses) are left waiting for items.
New planetary gearhead reaches record levels
FAULHABER in introducing the most powerful power transmission technology in its size class to the market with the new 20/1R planetary gearhead: A diameter of 20 mm allows the stainless steel gearhead to achieve continuous torque of 800 mNm, and up to 1100 mNm for short periods during interval operation. Following intensive development with a comprehensive series of tests, the power output was able to be more than tripled in comparison to previous models. The input speed reaches 12,000 rpm. The 20/1R can be combined with DC, brushless motors and stepper motors with a diameter of 17 to 22 mm.
FAULHABER brings affordable micromotor onto the market
FAULHABER is expanding its range of drives in the medium power range with the new 1727…CXR DC-micromotor, and is adding an extremely compact drive to the CXR series. A powerful neodymium magnet gives the graphite-commutated motor a high power density with a continuous torque of 4.9 mNm. It generates this power in a housing that is just 17 mm in diameter and 27 mm in length. The temperature range in which it can be used is from -30 to +100°C.
Additional power with the new FAULHABER 2668 … CR motor
The new 2668 … CR DC motor from FAULHABER offers considerably more power than comparable drives, and is the most powerful copper-graphite commutated DC-micromotor in its size class on the market. Thanks to a bigger NdFeB magnet and a high copper content in the winding, it supplies a rated torque of 70 mNm. As a result, it weighs just 189 g with a diameter of 26 mm. Furthermore, it reaches full power extremely quickly with its high pulse torque. The 2668 … CR is thus especially well suited for professional high-performance tools such as pruning shears or motorised screwdrivers.
Morgan Advanced Materials has launched an innovative interactive tool, allowing the comparison of thermal, economic and environmental performances of a variety of thermal insulation systems over the course of their working lifetimes.
Inside Scott Safety’s factory, the latest robotic technology works round the clock to produce the highest filter quality ensuring the protection of asbestos removers. Every single particulate filter is individually analysed at the end of the production line and any failing its maximum 0.05 percent penetration level test are instantly discarded. This significant technological investment supports one of Scott Safety’s corporate pillars of ‘Zero Defects’ and ensures that rigorous quality and reproducibility is meticulously achieved. As the robots work optimally 24/7 without the need for a break, Scott Safety also delivers unrivalled turnaround in production and delivery of its filters to customers.
Attending the A+A 2015 with the mission to define ‘What’s Next In Safety?’, Scott Safety did not disappoint. With a stand that was bigger and better than ever they showcased the latest technologies, concepts and future-thinking surrounding industrial gas detection and breathing apparatus solutions. Also making their premier appearance was the Scott Safety Super Heroes. These heroes certainly made an impression on visitors highlighting not only the importance of the end user and the world class Scott Safety products but also demonstrating the creative flair of the business.
Visitors to this year’s ADIPEC show will have the opportunity to visit not one but two Scott Safety stands and benefit from speaking to experts across the whole range of Scott Safety products. The main Scott Safety product stand (Stand 13575) will showcase its world renowned Breathing Apparatus (BA) sets, respiratory protection in the form of half and full mask protection, a range of air purified products and its established head and sensory protection products.
