Size matters: why small is the new big in electronic components

Size matters: why small is the new big in electronic components
First the industry talked about miniature electronics, now it’s ultra-miniature and nano (effectively nearly invisible). Soon the buzz will be around molecular electronics, where the device components exist as individual molecules with the potential to form their own systems! The aim for improved technology is driven by speed and size: the smaller it is, the quicker the signal passes from one point to another, and the more applications of technology we see.

Custom 3-point locking for RACK data cabinets installations

Custom 3-point locking for RACK data cabinets installations
EAE Elektroteknik AS is a member of the EAE Group which was established in 1995 to manufacture low voltage electrical enclosures under the E-Kabin brand. When EAE faced growing customer demands to increase the productivity and efficiency of its data cabinet locking system, Essentra Components developed the existing product into a new single movement locking solution, solving EAE’s customers valuable time and providing improved product satisfaction.

Spring couplings for road construction machinery

Spring couplings for road construction machinery
A customised coupling configuration for a manufacturer of motor graders for road construction has been developed by Torsion Control Products (TCP). The robust spring couplings attenuate torsional vibration, isolate resonance, protect against overload and shock, reduce noise, improve the service life of bearings and gears and increase system durability.

Pizza plant saves over €15,000 after switching bearings

Pizza plant saves over €15,000 after switching bearings
A manufacturer of frozen pizzas was experiencing failures every four weeks on the belt tensioner serving one of its food conveyors. However, a simple change to NSK moulded-oil bearings resulted in significantly prolonged operating life, leading to annual cost savings of €15,360.

Components range grows to support increasing demand

Components range grows to support increasing demand
Demanding engineering applications require extraordinary solutions based on exceptional components. This is the principle that drives WDS Component Parts to constantly expand its range of stainless steel parts. Stainless steel components are highly resistant to corrosion, so are favoured in environments that are wet, salty, corrosive, or otherwise challenging.

High-performance remote I/O node for self-propelled machines

High-performance remote I/O node for self-propelled machines
The JXM-IO-E30 expansion module by Jetter is a universal and remote I/O node for self-propelled machines. Equipped with a well-balanced configuration of analog and digital inputs and outputs as well as three short-circuit-proof sensor supplies, the module can be integrated via CANopen into conventional CAN networks of self-propelled machines, such as manure spreaders, forage wagons, dump trucks, sweepers or salt spreaders.

Bearings with black oxide finish for increased performance

Bearings with black oxide finish for increased performance
At this year’s Hannover Messe in Germany, bearing manufacturer NKE Austria, will present bearings with black oxide finish. The protective layer improves run-in and wear characteristics and protects against environmental effects. Especially in critical applications such as wind turbine gear boxes, black oxide finish is a cost-effective and technically viable means of prolonging the service life and performance of rolling bearings.

Corrosion solutions for engineers at sea

Corrosion solutions for engineers at sea
In most engineering sectors you have to pay some attention to the possibility of corrosion. But it is different for marine engineers, who must eat, sleep and dream about the subject, while also maintaining a laser-focus on robust reliability to avoid failures at sea. Engineering components supplier WDS Component Parts has put a lot of effort into supporting the requirements of sea-going engineers.
