Spherical roller bearings reduce grease egress

Schaeffler’s new sealed FAG E1 X-life spherical roller bearings can reduce grease consumption by up to 80%. An innovative seal concept minimises grease egress and eliminates complicated relubrication systems while maintaining the same high dynamic and static load rating. The compact bearing, which has the same outside dimensions as non-sealed standard bearings, is therefore almost […]

Partnership extends reach into Africa

  Bearing Man Group (BMG) has announced the conclusion of a strategic partnership agreement with global motion and control company Parker Hannifin Corporation. This development extends the BMG range of pneumatic and hydraulic filtration products and systems to include Parker motion and control technologies. Parker offers solutions in the electromechanical; hydraulic and pneumatic; fluid and […]

Valves for assembly close to the actuator

The new, lightweight AV03 valve system from Bosch Rexroth has an ultra-compact design thanks to a diagonal arrangement of the valve components – making it ideal for assembly close to the actuator. The result is a lower pressure drop across the system, and optimised performance. Technical designers always try to position pneumatic valves as close […]

Pressure sensors for pneumatic applications

The compact PQ Series pressure sensors from Ifm Electronic are designed for pneumatic applications such as robotics and material handling applications. They measure the full range of pressure and vacuum typical in these applications. The cube-shaped pneumatic pressure sensor easily retrofits traditional pressure switches at a fraction of the price. Measuring only 32 mm x […]

Multiple software options for label and sign printing

The DuraLabel Pro printer gives multiple software options for printing labels and signs. This printer does not require special software as it is compatible with software already on PCs such as Microsoft Word and Excel. Any software which works with a computer printer will be compatible with this printer. It also comes with DuraSuite labelling […]

Object detection in materials handling

Countapulse Controls reports that the new Leuze cylindrical sensors offer a higher mechanical strength than the standard sensors. Engineered for particularly arduous conditions, the Leuze 328 series sensor is based on the optical platform of the well-known standard 318B series. However, this new device features a metal sleeve in the housing. The operational sensors available […]

These drives deliver reliability and durability in demanding bulk materials handling applications. The gear drives deliver higher output torque densities, superior thermal performance, enhanced lubrication and optimised bearing life. They are designed with adjustable installation footprints […]

Relays to eliminate pump motor damage

Pumps are indispensable in mining, petroleum recovery, pipelines, refining and many manufacturing operations, therefore any failure can cause costly, unscheduled downtime. A pump and drive motor can fail in other ways, including pumps running dry and jammed pumps causing the motor to overload, which can lead to catastrophic damage to the motor and other electrical […]
