Select components directly from the machine in the event of faults or maintenance requirement? This works with the new Eplan Data Portal app which is now avail-able in two languages from the iTunes Store. It allows users to access over 230,000 components in the portal, search and select mobile devices and components. The intelligent basket transfers the data collected into the original Eplan project, unless the customer has a soft-ware service contract.
As part of its commitment to ensure ongoing customer satisfaction, Souriau develops solutions to reduce the cost of its connectors without sacrificing their high performance. One example is its new Cost-Effective ARINC 600 connector with harpooned contacts. Like its predecessor, this connector conforms to the ARINC 600 standard but costs as much as 25% less.
Due to its mountainous topography, Italy is a country rich in road tunnels. In the Lombardy region, a new supervision and remote control system has been designed and implemented by Gemmo S.p.A. Based on the PcVue SCADA system from ARC Informatique, it ensures the comfort and safety of users along over 140km of tunnels.
Icon Polymer Group, a technology company in engineered polymer products, has delivered a major boost to designers seeking to minimise aircraft weight and fuel consumption, with the introduction of a revolutionary new lighter weight material for aircraft seals.
As more and more people rely on mobile communications in their daily lives, the pressure on telecom infrastructure is increased. We want telecom base stations to achieve higher performance while decreasing operational costs. This can be a real challenge, especially in rural and scarcely populated areas where we might lack a well-developed power grid and the nearest service technician is miles away.
On Hannover Messe 2013, Atlas Copco surprised the market with a new, very compact oil-injected rotary screw compressor from 7 to 37 kW: the 7-37 GA VSD+. Besides a small footprint, it offers a leap forward in Free Air Delivery (improvements of up to 12%), and a breakthrough energy-efficiency: it requires on average 50% less energy than a comparable idling compressor. This new type of compressor offering a variable speed (frequency-controlled), will be suitable for most industries and aims to contribute significantly to the green economy needs.
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton has announced that it will be participating in VMware Forum 2013, which takes place from April to June in a number of major cities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) including Brussels at the Wild Gallery on May 15th. At the events, Eaton, a VMware® Technology Alliance partner, will demonstrate how its Intelligent Power® software makes it easy to manage power devices in virtualised environments by integrating seamlessly with VMware’s virtual machine management system, vCenter™. Eaton will also be exhibiting its latest power management solutions for virtual environments on its stand.
In today‘s environment, complete machining is essential in order to profitably produce complex components. For this reason, the metal and plastics producer MKE has been making knee joint components for medical technology on an EMCO Hyperturn HT 95 SMB since the beginning of 2012. In addition to exemplary service, the key for the in Hallein-based machine manufacturer was what MKE believes to be the best cost/benefit relationship in the market.
