Ecomical, flexible robot found after ten year search

Ecomical, flexible robot found after ten year search
In the absence of a viable automated alternative, the Danish engineering company Linatex had, for more than a decade, continued to use manual labour to feed parts into a CNC turning centre. The company avoided robots because they were not only too expensive for its needs but also inflexible as the systems required dedicated and specialist support to convert them to other tasks.

Compact slide system delivers long term reliability

Compact slide system delivers long term reliability
PCS Instruments manufactures equipment for testing fuels and lubricants and counts amongst its customers all the major oil companies as well as many national standards laboratories and test houses. Its products perform well and look good. So when specifying components for its tribology test equipment and laboratory instruments, PCS needs to satisfy both performance and appearance criteria. And for two of its popular models this need is ably met by the IEF Werner domiLINE linear motion system from R. A. Rodriguez.

Turbo compressors come with a choice of control systems

Turbo compressors come with a choice of control systems
To ensure optimum operating efficiency, the Howden Donkin integrally geared turbo compressors come with a choice of control systems to provide infinitely variable air flow in combination with a simple constant speed motor. All rely on the effective actuation of two sets of vanes that influence the air flow into the compressor according to process performance. This is an operation that requires high forces at slow speeds and for this reason the Mini range of actuators, from Framo Morat were selected for the job.

Compact geared motor with double brake

Compact geared motor with double brake
The Compacta slip-on geared motors, manufactured by Framo Morat and distributed in the UK by R. A. Rodriguez, are ideal for repeatable positioning and reversing tasks in stage technology.

Space-saving bearing for compact machine tool

Space-saving bearing for compact machine tool
Deliberately restricting the size of component that its VECTOR machine handles was a shrewd move for Colchester-based Curtis Machine Tools. It has effectively cornered the market in small parts grinding by creating a highly efficient and compact machine, with short distances between grinding and loading, to cut cycle times. In particular, the VECTOR machine is now seen as an automotive industry standard but it is also being used for applications such as cutting parts of power tools.
