End users seeking support for their automation systems can visit the Altra Industrial Motion stand (Hall 3, Booth 368), at SPS Drives in Nuremburg, Germany, 22nd-24th November, 2016, where the company will be represented by companies such as Bauer Gear Motor, Huco Dynatork, Matrix International and Warner Electric.
Attendees can also gain insight into how these solutions can benefit their application, direct from the engineers who design them.
Bauer Gear Motor
Bauer’s HiflexDRIVE range will be on show, including the new stainless steel and aseptic models designed for hygienic processing areas. The ease of maintenance, cleanability and high efficiency especially under partial load make it well suited for precise conveying operations.
To complement this, Bauer will also introduce the new EtaK2.0 motor mounted inverter drive, which offers high levels of speed and torque control to increase efficiency. Furthermore, Bauer will be actively demonstrating an IP68 ingress rated submersible gear motor in a water tank, to demonstrate its operational capabilities first-hand.
The company will also be showcasing its customised solutions, designed specifically for customer applications - designing specialised solutions with extremely short lead times, allowing end users to achieve an evolved system easily and quickly.

Precision couplings play a vital role in smooth power transmission, a requirement for preserving the accuracy of automated moving equipment. Huco Dynatork has been servicing these, utilising modern production processes and materials to deliver its products.
The entire Huco Couplings range will be represented at the show, including the business’ flagship Oldham model. This particular model eliminates backlash by transmitting rotation through a central disk that moves over the hubs when preloaded. Available with discs and hubs in varying materials depending on requirement – the ample radial compensation and the ease of maintenance of the product makes it efficient and versatile.
Other models of particular note include the Beam coupling and Bellows coupling. Available in steel, aluminium or plastic depending on the model, the Beam coupling can be specified in Single Beam, Step Beam, 3-Beam for higher torque capacity or 6-Beam for increased misalignment capability. Bellows couplings are well suited for applications that demand high levels of torsional integrity, with both the Flex-K and Flex-B series offering modification via varying the number and spacing of convolutions.

At SPS 2016, Matrix International will be presenting its 1EB spring applied brake range, a low backlash brake for precision holding applications. As a service provider of electro-magnetic brakes for servo motor and robotic applications, the exhibition’s focus on automation provides the perfect platform for the business.
Matrix’s design, test and production facilities allow its customers to specify a solution tailored to their application. Prototypes can be assessed by testing rigs, allowing customised solutions. As with all Matrix brakes, products within the 1EB range can be totally customised upon request to create a solution for the demands of varied applications.

Offering a choice of industrial clutches, brakes and controls, Warner Electric will be present at the exhibition to showcase the latest XSB series of compact electromagnetic brakes along with its large selection of linear actuators.
The XSB series has been specifically introduced to service industrial braking applications where weight and available space are major concerns. Designed to optimise torque levels on the smallest possible footprint, the XSB is offered in six different sizes to meet application requirements and also features a fully customised adaptor flange, increasing flexibility of installation for end users.
Warner’s selection of linear actuators will also be present on the stand, including models for light duty, general duty, rugged duty and customised actuators built to client requirement.
