Dorner is launching the next generation in the 3200 Series platform, giving customers more options and added flexibility to serve a greater range of markets, including industrial, packaging and assembly. The new line that’s debuting this month was created by merging and improving Dorner’s 5200/5300 Series Conveyors with the 3200 Series conveyor platform. The new 3200 Series product line includes Flat Belt Conveyors, Modular Belt Conveyors and Precision Move Conveyors. The 3200 Modular Belt Conveyor is the first phase of the launch.
With currently over 700 employees, solution provider Eplan is pushing forward with its expansionary course in the year of its 30th anniversary: new subsidiaries have been founded in Japan and South Africa. Customers in Turkey will shortly also be able to profit from the direct presence of the CAE specialist. Until now, the three countries have been sup-ported by cooperation partners.
We’ve all seen car crashes. Most of us have had one or two in our lifetime. But imagine a car crash where neither car has a steering wheel, or wheels of any sort. Hard to picture? Not if you were watching an assembly line in an automobile manufacturing plant. Needless to say, having cars crash before they have been completely assembled is not good for the bottom line.
The eWON Flexy is the world’s first modular industrial M2M router that allows OEMs and system integrators to link remote devices in an environment where communication technologies are constantly changing (2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi,…) and to communicate universally with the most varied field equipment. With its concept of base modules that can contain up to four expansion boards, Flexy offers its end-users an almost unlimited number of possibilities: from a simple serial, MPI, or Profibus gateway to Ethernet, to the WiFi LAN router with redundancy via 3G modem.
Cambridge, UK – Datapaq introduces the TB9840D heat sink for use in heat treatment applications with a high mechanical load such as nitrogen and helium gas quenches. The new and improved heat sink complements TB4500 and TB4600 thermal barriers from Datapaq. In vacuum or quench applications, it can also be used with TB4000 models. The result of innovative construction and manufacturing approaches, the new heat sink withstands vacuum as well as gas pressure quenches up to 20 bar. Thus, it allows operators to monitor complete high-temperature processes up to 1,200 °C, including heating and cooling cycles. Shortcomings of conventional heat sink designs such as ballooning or shrinkage have been removed. The new tried and tested construction with phase-change material reliably maintains a safe operating temperature below 70 °C for the data logger. New high-pressure filler seals securely prevent gas leakage or permeation in vacuum furnaces. The TB9840D heat sink can be used with Datapaq’s Tpaq21 data logger which generates temperature profiling data that can be retrieved upon exiting the process. In combination with the appropriate thermal barriers from Datapaq, reliable temperature monitoring solutions for various applications can be realized.
