Small, light-weight, versatile: New helical bevel washdown gearboxes

At this year's Hannover Messe exhibition, a preview of a new line of two-stage helical bevel gear units, which consists of models in five different sizes with torques between 90 and 660 Nm, has been showcased at NORD Drivesystems' booth. All units feature a high-strength die-cast aluminum gearcase which is designed according to the proven UNICASE principle. Since the gearcase requires neither an inspection cover nor a screw-on input cover, the units are especially small and light-weight. This facilitates handling, and helps reduce energy consumption particularly in applications where drives are moved.

More than 100 km of track are equipped with Silent Track system

The SilentTrackâ noise damping system, developed by Tata Steel, has been installed to date on over 100km of railway track worldwide. For each installation, the system is specifically adapted by Tata Steel engineers to maximise effectiveness for a client’s track and operating environment. Recent international installations including Oslo, Sydney and the Rhine Valley, have demonstrated the high levels of noise reduction obtained with this approach, and the flexibility of the SilentTrack® system.


Universal combinations: Speed Controller Series SC 5004 and SC 5008

FAULHABER is adding two new Speed Controllers to its controller range. The PI Controller series is software-configurable – so no need for trimmers or DIP switches – and can be operated with one and the same controller, either as brushed direct current motors (DC) or electronically commuted drives (BL), also with integrated Hall sensors. Depending on the operating mode, the speed can be controlled to between 50 and 60,000 rpm.


Cleancon: Innovative cleanliness concept for fasteners compliant with VDA 19

The VDA 19 guideline and the ISO 16232 standard define new requirements for the automobile industry for verifying technical cleanliness. To fulfil these requirements, manufacturers must identify and quantify any particle contamination that is present. The Cleancon® cleanliness concept from Arnold Umformtechnik goes a step further and provides a process that encompasses cleanliness requirements all the way from production to the customer application.


Learning to walk faster with high performance modelling

A project using MapleSim physical modelling software, at the University of Manchester, is helping to perfect the process of humanoid walking in robots. One of the challenges facing the Manchester team, lead by Dr Martin Brown and Dr Gustavo Medrano-Cerda, is visualising experiments quickly and effectively, to avoid slowing down the process and to ensure that experimentation is valid and relevant.
