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[…]

Disengagement desired

To protect machine tools, safety couplings have been indispensable for many decades in many applications in drive technology. As collision protection, they protect machines and users from damage, downtime and thus also expenses. The SKB-KS series for direct drives is backlash-free and thanks to the metal bellows construction flexible to compensate for misalignments. The bellows-side Read more about Disengagement desired[…]

Slim made!

The now presented sporty engine protection bar concept, which Wunderlich developed for the new BMW F 900 R and F 900 XR, shines in two ways: with maximum protection and low component weight. Due to its component geometry, the engine, in particular the water pump, the clutch and alternator, as well as their housing covers, Read more about Slim made![…]

Reliable and cost-effective

The SKW safety coupling ensures reliable overload and collision protection. It comes with a low-cost keyway connection and an integrated deep groove ball bearing for high bearing forces. Made of tempered steel, it can be used in temperature ranges from -30 ° C to + 200 ° C. The release torque is adjustable from 2 Read more about Reliable and cost-effective[…]

Ironed out

This reinforcement bar fits like a glove: It not only complements the protection of the Adventure, it effectively reinforces and perfects it. It almost ironed out the weakness on the open flank of the standard engine protection bar of the BMW F 850 GS Adventure. It provides additional structural rigidity throughout the entire pipe system, Read more about Ironed out[…]

esatus AG is one of the leading providers and drivers on topics around Self-Sovereign Identity. As a supporter of the Covid Credentials Initiative esatus AG has developed a demo that shows how the use of credentials and self-sovereign identity can be used to quickly and easily show whether people have developed antibodies to the new Read more about Out now – Demo for the use of Self-Sovereign Identity for Corona certificates[…]

Defined movement and latching

On complex injection moulds or die-casting tools, sometimes a second parting plane or an additional demoulding plane is necessary, for example on three-plate moulds or moulds with dual ejector assemblies. To allow defined movement and latching of the moving plates, HASCO has developed the round latch lock units Z1780/… and Z1782/… especially for these applications. The compact round latch lock units have multipoint Read more about Defined movement and latching[…]
