The new iQ+ electronic monitoring and control system, developed specifically by Gravograph for its range of engraving machines, increases their speed by up to 50%. iQ+ also enables new functions to be provided, including secure control of additional accessories, the “Point n’Shoot” positioning aid and automatic integration of the latest Gravograph innovation for producing Braille in signage. iQ+ is fitted as standard to Gravograph’s M and IS series machines manufactured since March 2009.
High-speed coil winding requires the use of a tensioner between the feed coil and the receiving coil (end product). Fine control and the trend towards using larger-diameter wires to meet the high demand for electrical equipment such as transformers means that tension control solutions are required which offer high torque density as well as easy torque control. ALTIC, inventor of the modern tensioner and a benchmark for the sector, has selected EMP electromagnetic brakes from MEROBEL for its entire electrical and electronic range.
With a marking speed of 2.4m/s, the new LS100 Ex has a 60% higher performance than the previous solution. With laser powers ranging from 30W to 80W, it is the ideal solution for a host of applications including part marking, trophies, gifts, leather goods, crystal and glassware, signage, photo marking and rubber stamp production.
Developed by Beijer Electronics, this new I/O module enables easy interfacing with Beijer Electronics’ HMI and allows the user to implement simple monitoring and automation tasks without the need of a PLC. The HMI I/O Controller is an easy-to-install and cost effective solution.
With the new GGTronic, Italian OEM GIANA decided to position itself on the higher level of machine-tools technology. “It is the only way to survive” explains Giulio Maria Giana, the company manager and technical director. As this milling & turning equipment in one set solution for big mechanical parts, very high rigidity becomes obviously a crucial design feature. Positioning has also to be very precise, reaching values as low as ±0.01mm, with a repeated accuracy of ±0.005 mm. To achieve these performances, GIUSEPPE GIANA went one step ahead by implemented REDEX-ANDANTEX’s TwinDRIVE on the machine, the original rack and pinion drive solution.
UTS In-Line is a connector that is designed to expand or repair links, and which assures a level of dynamic airtight sealing to IP68 or IP69K. It is an ideal solution for demanding applications such as robotics, off-road, road signage and railway signaling. The screw contact termination variant makes it the ideal companion for installation engineers.
Gravograph is introducing a high power and high frequency spindle as an option for its milling engraving machines. Powers of 150 to 1000W are available with rotation speeds up to 60000rpm, for various applications such as carving or 3D marking. Even with very strong layers, manufacturing is very fast, and this, on all materials (from brass to wood, through to Plexiglass or stainless steel). Unlike other models on the market, Gravograph offers a totally integrated solution with a unique user/machine interface to improve both productivity and safety.

The TR-36B is a rack mount analogue V.34 PSTN and 2 or 4 wire leased line modem. The modem and its rack are designed for harsh industrial applications where a number of modems are required in the same location. It is perfectly adapted for operating in environments with electromagnetic interferences and provides the best levels of reliability and security. It is also an ideal solution for remote connections using existing copper lines. TR-36B supports data rates of up to 115.2 kbit/s on the terminal side and modem modulation speeds of up to 33.6 kbit/s on the line side.
Thanks to the SHDSL transmission technology, Westermo’s DDW-120 Ethernet extender allows existing twisted pair cables to be used to establish a high-speed remote connection between two Ethernet networks. With transfer rates up to 5.7 Mbits/s and an operating distance of up to 15 kilometres at lower data rates, this is an easy-to-install alternative to fibre optic or radio systems when linking remote Ethernet networks. Further, the DDW-120 employs a transient blocking unit on each line interface to provide both over-current and over-voltage protection thus allowing the line to handle indirect lightning strike transients, power induction and short circuit problems.
