Product News Linear

Product News Linear technology and customized solutions from Rodriguez at Hannover Messe The power transmission specialist Rodriguez, based in Eschweiler, Germany manufactures and supplies customized solutions in motion based industrial applications. The company’s extensive portfolio for precision bearings covers a wide range of applications with Kaydon thin- section bearings, turntable bearings, large diameter slewing bearings and many other highquality components. In the last few years, the company has expanded its production capacity for high precision bearings. Rodriguez has also optimized some the administrative tasks regarding purchasing of small components, which reduces the processing costs and benefits the customers. Finally, the state-of-the-art machine park allows the realization and manufacturing of its customized solutions, the Value Added Products (VAP). At the Hanover Fair, visitors can also get information about the comprehensive product portfolio of rotary components and linear tech nology, including round rails, screw drives and complete linear systems from Rodriquez. www.rodriguez.de/en A common I/O system for safety and automation www.pilz.com Automation specialist, Pilz is launching a new generation of field level devices with the decentralised I/O system ‘PSSuniversal’ 2. It processes both, safety and nonsafety-related control signals. Safety and automation are physically mixed but logically separated. Users can also connect the remote I/Os to higher level control systems via common industrial communication protocols. Its 3-part system design allows precise diagnostics and enables errors to be located and rectified quickly. Modules can even be hot-swapped, the head module can be swapped without having to re-configure and dismantle the system. Users can themselves build the system structure on screen via “drag & drop”. With the new configuration tool from Pilz, users are guided through the manual installation step-by-step. This helps to avoid errors and the system can be put into service quickly and simply. The merging of automation and safety functions along with both technical and mechanical improvements help users to save time and costs right from the planning phase.

Like its predecessor, the new 40 A device is robust, both electrically and mechanically. High system availability is a top priority for all machines and systems. This power supply therefore provides dynamic boost, which also starts heavy loads, with 60 A and thus 150 % of the nominal current for 5 seconds. The robust design, with its high electric strength, high MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) values of over 1 million hours, along with active function monitoring with an LED and floating signal contact, ensures that all connected 24 V DC loads are reliably supplied. With an overall width of 110 mm, and tool-free wiring with Push-in connection saves time and space in installation. The extensive temperature range of -25 to 70 °C guarantees a high level of flexibility in applications. The wide input voltage range from 320 to 575 V AC enables its use worldwide. www.pheonixcontact.com 34 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES Eckerle.indd 1 08.03.2017 09:50:36

Floating caliper brake with one-piece brake caliper KTR has developed a floating caliper brake with one-piece brake caliper being made of special LT nodular iron. This qualifies the floating caliper brake for applications in the cryogenic temperature range down to – 40 °C. All other components such as pad retainers, pistons and guide pins are made of steel. The brake pads are made of powder metal. Depending on the application’s preference and basic conditions, the brake can be operated either hydraulically or electromechanically, with clamping forces up to 15 kN being generated in the passive design and 16.5 kN in the active design. With the one-piece design, there are no more bright contact surfaces, hence improving the brake’s corrosion resistance and making the power transmission from the brake caliper to the base plate more consistent. The new float- ing caliper brakes series ‘XS’ are intended for use in the most demanding environments and can be used both as service brakes, for high numbers of cycles and as stop brakes, even above ground or underground, onshore or offshore applications. www.ktr.com Precision roller pinion system in stainless steel Nexen Group, Inc. introduces its stainless steel version of ‘RPS’, its patented precision roller pinion system. RPS engages 2 teeth simultaneously to achieve superior accuracy and zero backlash. The system is quiet, efficient and stainless steel makes it extremely corrosion resistant. RPS provides a low maintenance, durable alternative to rack and pinion, ball screw and belt drive technology. This system uses needle bearings to support the rollers that engage the teeth. This eliminates the sliding friction found in many other motion control systems, leading to an efficiency greater than 99 %. High efficiency means lower frictional and thermal losses, and wear, providing a long life of 60 million pinion revolutions or up to 36 million meters. Further key features include high speeds of up to 11 m/s, superior accuracy of +- 50 µm, zero backlash, and customized long lengths. The company, Nexen holds 120 US and international patents. Headquartered in the U.S it has its European office in Belgium. www.nexengroup.com Eaton showcases integrated industrial technologies at Hannover Messe 2017 Eaton offers machine manufacturers a comprehensive range of solutions in energy and automation for both electrical and hydraulic applications. Its cooperation with T-Systems, allows it to offer industrial applications with cloud based services. A visit to Eaton at Hannover Messe 2017, visitors can learn more about the fully integrated industrial technologies that Eaton and its partners provide. Also the company showcases its developments in hydraulic and electro-hydraulic systems. The company is now focusing on helping machine manufacturers to make their products ready for Industry 4.0. Furthermore, Eaton is actively supporting the implementation of the OPC-UA standard, both for M2M and for machine to cloud communication. The company is presenting a range of innovative energy storage systems and power distribution systems that can be utilised within industrial and commercial applications. www.eaton.com © GÜDEL More power !
