NUM has released a scalable functional safety architecture for CNC applications that can be applied to almost any machine tool – regardless of its complexity or number of axes.
Rockwell Automation has announced a new-generation of electronic motor controllers and soft-starts with improved voltage outputs to maximise the efficiency of motor starts and stops.
SKF has developed a low-cost vibration and temperature sensor for monitoring non-critical rotating machinery. The Machine Condition Indicator (MCI) costs less than an accelerometer and can be used to track basic machine health on equipment that would not normally be monitored regularly.
ABB has developed a two-pole, high-voltage motor for driving high-power pumps and compressors in chemical, oil and gas plants, as well as for water and wastewater treatment plants
