Multi-talent for engine development

Magnetoresistive (xMR) sensors are not only commonly used in road vehicles, for example, in wheel speed or steering angle sensors, but are also playing an increasingly important role in the development of vehicles. The inherent precision and flexibility of the magnetoresistive measurement principle opens up new applications for engine test bench measurement and condition monitoring Read more about Multi-talent for engine development[…]

Glob Top spray dispensing tests with DELO adhesive

Microdispensing in the electronics industry can help to increase the service life of individual components. Glob Top Potting, for example, protects sensitive components, usually semiconductor chips, from mechanical stresses such as vibrations or temperature fluctuations. It also protects them from external environmental influences such as moisture or corrosion. A viscous resin matrix is applied, mostly Read more about Glob Top spray dispensing tests with DELO adhesive[…]

Limit switch box for quarter turn valves

The Ingelfingen-based valve specialist GEMÜ is launching electrical position indicators for manually and pneumatically operated quarter turn valves. To automate process plants, the GEMÜ LSC limit switch box detects the valve position of manually and pneumatically operated quarter turn valves. This is signalled by an optical indication and transmitted to the plant control system. The Read more about Limit switch box for quarter turn valves[…]

Monitoring in seconds

What is the quickest way to test the gas pressure in, for example, 400 hydro-pneumatic accumulators? The Werdohl fluid specialists from Stauff have found what is probably the most convincing solution to this challenge. The pressure is continuously recorded by sensors which are integrated into the connection adapter at the gas filler connection. They transfer Read more about Monitoring in seconds[…]

Additive manufacturing with liquid materials

The use of additive manufacturing processes is increasing within industrial applications, as they bring some significant customer benefits compared to conventional processes. Additive manufacturing is based upon the layered structure of a component. The production time therefore depends on the volume to be applied to the component. The geometric shape of the individual layers has Read more about Additive manufacturing with liquid materials[…]

More flexibility, precision and ease of maintenance for filling processes

The ever-increasing variety of beverages, liquid foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals presents major challenges for plant operators and plant designers. Manufacturers are placing more and more emphasis on customized solutions when it comes to container shapes, in order to stand out from the competition. This also applies to plant design. Maximum flexibility is often incompatible with low Read more about More flexibility, precision and ease of maintenance for filling processes[…]

Successfully master the winding process

Materials in winding applications place varied demands on drives: Sometimes the issue is high speeds, sometimes precision and in other applications, the challenge of a large mass. The wide spectrum of materials covers raw paper with a width of up to ten meters over a thin film, to carbon fibre threads with low elasticity and Read more about Successfully master the winding process[…]
