Lasting safety for food production protection

In the food industry, metal detectors are used for quality assurance and to protect against contamination. However, achieving the most accurate detection results requires more than simply using the best technology. Optimal handling and calibration of your metal detection system are of equal importance. In the White Paper “Lasting safety for food production protection“, Sesotec provides five useful tips handling and calibrating metal detectors to ensure their best possible performance and thus guarantee product purity. The White Paper describes the following five Read more about Lasting safety for food production protection[…]

Use of torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings in Special high-speed test benchs

Special high-speed test benches are used to test bearings. In these tests, the effects of different lubricants on the sliding properties of the bearings in the endurance test are checked. The structural design of such a test rig must meet different requirements. The drive is subject to special conditions. In addition to a lateral force-free Read more about Use of torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings in Special high-speed test benchs[…]

Even more resistant

The long-proven metal bellows couplings of the ‘KG’ and ‘MKG’ series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik have burnished hubs, which offer improved rust protection and greater resistance to environmental influences. This type of surface refinement is not an overlying layer such as nickel plating, chrome plating or painting, but a chemical reaction with the material. The substrate Read more about Even more resistant[…]

Lower costs with Balluff IO-Link sensor/actuator hubs
