Servo couplings for bridging larger distances without an intermediate bearing support

As well as servo bellow couplings as standard and miniature couplings and couplings for fitting in tight spaces or with high torques, JAKOB also manufactures servo couplings for long wheelbases of up to 6 m. These distance couplings, also referred to as prop shafts or intermediate axes, are used to bridge large shaft distances without Read more about Servo couplings for bridging larger distances without an intermediate bearing support[…]

Han-Modular® Flexbox: Modular connectors for energy chains

The flexible and reliable supply for fast, linearly moving components of machines and systems is made possible by the Han-Modular® Flexbox – a novel interface in the modular plastic housing system from HARTING. Longer, moving cable runs for machines and machine modules are easier to install and maintain. The Han-Modular® Flexbox makes it possible to Read more about Han-Modular® Flexbox: Modular connectors for energy chains[…]

Pfeifer and Gleistein join forces

It is no secret that “wire ropes of the future” will continue to be increasingly produced using synthetic fibres. High-performance ropes made of high-tech textile fibres weigh just a fraction and are easier to handle than their steel-wire based counterparts while delivering performance attributes that are on par. It is upon this backdrop that Gleistein Read more about Pfeifer and Gleistein join forces[…]

Fiber optic ideal for extremely tough tasks

Digitisation is also making inroads in tunnel drilling projects and mining. Given the harshness of these environments, the requirements are quite high. Large distances, together with the high bandwidths that are required, make fiber optic cable (FOC) the indispensable conductive medium for industrial Ethernet. HARTING has now developed an ideal solution for these tough tasks. Read more about Fiber optic ideal for extremely tough tasks[…]
