Worldwide News Mayr

Worldwide News Mayr power transmission opens a new plant in China Since its foundation 10 years ago, Mayr China has developed from a simple representative office into a flourishing company with its own production. With the new facility near Shanghai, Mayr power transmission is reacting to the continuously increasing demand. The demand in China for highquality, particularly in the field of safety brakes for elevator technology is enormous. Chinese elevator manufacturers are currently working hard to improve the standards of safety in their elevator systems. Mayr aims to supply every single brake with the required quality and safety measures. To ensure its success, Mayr provides clear processes, comprehensive test possibilities, years of experience and highlyqualified employees. The new plant with a production area of approximately 8 000 m 2 provides space for up to 200 employees. At the moment, Mayr China has a staff of approximately 110 employees. In addition to the plant in China, Mayr power transmission is also expanding the company complex at the German Headquarters. There construction work is currently taking place for the new Communications Centre and a new Production and Assembly hall. Bolenz & Schäfer becomes Roth Hydraulics and opens subsidiary in the USA Change is afoot for Bolenz & Schäfer GmbH from Biedenkopf- Eckelshausen. The Roth Industries subsidiary operates under Roth Hydraulics GmbH since May 2016. The traditional company for hydraulic accumulators, which has belonged to the Roth Group since 1989, is now bearing the logo of its parent company Roth Industries. A subsidiary opened in North America back in January 2016 under the new brand: Roth Hydraulics NA, Inc. in Syracuse, USA. As CEO of Roth Hydraulics Frank Fuchs explains: “We are delighted to bear the brand name of our parent company under the motto ‘one brand – many strengths’ and can now take better advantage of synergies across the divisions. Along with the subsidiary founded in Taicang, China last year, this subsidiary in North America has enabled us to enhance our international presence even further.” www.roth-industries.de/en www.mayr.com Change your bearing now High-performance bearings with predictable service life Find suitable bearings and calculate their service life online: igus.eu/iglidur-expert and save 40% Whether bronze or sintered bearings, coated metal bushings or needle roller bearings: Reduce costs and improve machine performance with iglidur ® polymer bearings.

Innovations you definitely shouldn’t miss CHOICE at MDA North America 2016 Heavy-duty connectors for compact networking New generation of eddy current sensors New magnetostrictive micropulse transducers PRODUCT NEWS - MDA NORTH AMERICA In modern machines, the complexity and associated costs for networking and control technology are increasing, without more space being made available for them. With the reworked ‘Heavycon’ D7 connector range, Phoenix Contact is offering power transmission in a compact design. The metal housings have been made around 40 % lighter. In spite of their small design, there is sufficient cable space for high-position cables or large cross sections. The conductive surface and conductive seals offer good EMC properties when combined with a suitable screw connection. The panel mounting bases are secured with four screws. This means they can handle extreme forces and speeds. Temporarily used interfaces can be reliably sealed with securely fastened caps. A new feed-through housing can optionally be mounted from the front or rear side. It also provides you with IP and EMC-compliant protection on the connection side. The plastic housings have also been reworked. The integrated cable gland reliably seals small and large cable diameters. www.pheonixcontact.com Micro-Epsilon has developed new eddyNCDT 3001 and 3005 eddy current sensors that provide high precision measurement results even in industrial environments. These eddy current displacement sensors measure displacement, distance, position and vibrations. They provide highest precision and resolution on a wear-free, non-contact basis. As eddy current penetrates insulator materials, even metal behind an insulating layer can be used as a measuring object. For this reason, dust, dirt and oil do not affect the measurement. This fact combined with the sensor’s robust, temperature-compensated design enable highly precise measurements in harsh, industrial environments. Eddy current sensors of the 3001 series from Micro-Epsilon are particularly well suited to the detection of high speed processes, operating with a frequency response up to 5 times higher than inductive sensors. Unlike the eddyNCDT 3001, the 3005 version consists of sensor, cable and external miniature controller. www.micro-epsilon.com Magnetostrictive position measuring systems in the profile housing from Balluff stand out with ease of installation, a wear-free measuring principle, a rugged, shock- and vibration-resistant and contamination sealed housing with IP 67 protection rating. With the BTL7-S5 and the BTL7-P511 the company is offering two new systems with SSI and DPI/IP interface. Designed for long stroke lengths of up to 7 620 mm, these non-contact and absolute measuring systems provide synchronous data transmission for high-accuracy machine positioning with a resolution of 1µm. They feature a sampling rate of up to 4 kHz for especially fast measurement data acquisition. SSI: In a positioning system with synchronized SSI interface data acquisition is synchronized to the external clock of the controller. This allows the controller to perform optimal speed calculations. Ideal applications include precise position measurement in demanding tasks as simultaneous measurement of axis position and speed on a press. DPI/IP: This digital pulse interface is compatible with controllers from most manufacturers. www.balluff.com MDA Technologies 3/2016
