WIKA has a new, flexible pressure sensor with IO-Link in its portfolio. The model A-1200 is used for pressure monitoring or as a PNP/NPN switch, especially in intelligent machines. The new pressure sensor can be integrated into series production without any great effort. It is easy to configure and can be supplied with preset parameters Read more about Pressure sensor with IO-Link for intelligent machines[…]

Future-proof drying

Anybody using refrigeration drying in compressed air treatment is required to comply with the F-gas regulation. The new EU 517/2014 directive represents the end for certain refrigerants that are still currently used in these dryers. Nearly every compressed air station uses refrigeration dryers, since most applications require these machines to deliver a dependable supply of Read more about Future-proof drying[…]

Twice the Power with the Same Dimensions

Baumüller is expanding its servomotor portfolio with the water-cooled model sizes 45 and 56. The advantages of water cooling especially come into their own in the small installation sizes with their space-saving installation and simultaneously very high power density. Textile machines need it, but, for example, so too do small injection molding machines or applications Read more about Twice the Power with the Same Dimensions[…]
