Preventing Dust Explosions Using the Purge+Pressurization System



We’ve all had annoying experiences with loose threaded fasteners, such as loose screws in eyeglasses or door handles. In the worst case, they can even lead to truly hazardous situations. With its innovative ThreadLoc system, Arnold Umformtechnik has now developed a unique complete range of chemical and mechanical thread locking technologies that can meet the need for keeping screws and bolts tight in every situation.


REMFORM screw reduce the cost of plastic components assembly

Remform screws from Arnold Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. reduce the overall assembly cost of plastic parts as they do not require nuts or inserts. They furthermore ensure the highest levels of assembly security, due to a specific design that creates a large difference between the forming torque and the stripping torque. The main application of REMFORM for plastic parts assembly is the automotive industry.


MapleSim and Maple Used in Advanced Research Projects at the Automation, Robotics, and Mechatronics Lab at SUNY Buffalo

The Automation, Robotics and Mechatronics (ARM) Lab ( is a research laboratory in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at the School of Engineering & Applied Sciences in The State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo. The lab combines an in-depth understanding of mathematical theory with experimental validation to develop a new generation of smart mechanical and mechatronic systems. Their work includes projects in haptic devices for surgical simulations, musculoskeletal simulation to refine human-machine interactions, cooperative payload transport by robot collectives, and omnidirectional wheeled robots. Several of their research projects have directly resulted in the creation of commercially available devices that are then used by labs around the world for education and further research.


Jumbo: More torque in less space

REDEX ANDANTEX has the pleasure to announce the new evolution of its DualDrive rack and pinion drive. This evolution features a more compact size while maintaining the outstanding performances that have made the DualDrive innovative concept a perfect solution for extreme machine tool high precision positioning demands.

SK 540E: compact inverters with integrated PLC functionality

NORD Drivesystems extends its SK 500E series of compact frequency inverters for control cabinet installation, adding the top-of-the-line model SK 540E which features an integrated basic PLC functionality. Without the support of an external controller, the cost-effective inverter is able to control many demanding applications with sequences and links to counters, comparators and flags that are easily programmed in accordance with the industry standard IEC 61131-3 using the PC-based NordCon tool.


Modernisation of the Loden-Frey fashion store in Munich

The refurbishment of the HVAC system of the Loden-Frey fashion store in Munich was particularly challenging as under no circumstances could the refurbishing work disrupt normal business operations or disturb the store’s customers. The project was made all the more difficult by the restricted clearance space above the suspended ceilings and the limited space available for a new plant room.
