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[…]

Connection solutions for confined spaces from LAPP

Space has always been scarce in factories and with continuing rapid electrification and digitization, things are getting even tighter in machines, robots and control cabinets. This has an impact also on connection solutions: Cables must become thinner, connectors slimmer, peripherals more compact. LAPP has been keeping an eye on this trend for quite some time Read more about Connection solutions for confined spaces from LAPP[…]

KMW Meets Increasing Demands on Sensing Elements with New Materials

Responding to new applications for its thin film sensor technology, and constant demand for increased accuracy, temperature stability and overall durability, KMW has developed sensing elements featuring more resistant substrates, more sensitive functional layers and more effective insulation and passivation materials. A primary factor driving these advances has been growing demand for pressure sensors from Read more about KMW Meets Increasing Demands on Sensing Elements with New Materials[…]

Piezoelectric Micro Sensors based on aluminum nitride for Industrial Applications

Fraunhofer ENAS develops piezoelectric micro systems using aluminum nitride (AlN). These microsystems contain a high energy density which allows the miniaturization of MEMS and NEMS. Therefore, costs and energy consumption in the fabrication process of the microsystems can be reduced and the areas of application increases. In contrast to the common used lead zirconate titanate Read more about Piezoelectric Micro Sensors based on aluminum nitride for Industrial Applications[…]
