The Multi-Carrier-System, a configurable transport system, has been announced by Siemens. In this configurable transport system, the transport carriages, which are driven by linear motors, are flexibly moved to the individual units such as a filling, closing or labeling unit.
Applied Motion Products has introduced a closed-loop linear actuator that creates peak torques up to 50 percent higher than holding torque. TBSM11 linear actuators are said to accelerate and decelerate faster, and only draw current when needed to run cooler and more quietly than conventional step motor-based linear actuators.
Hoskin Scientific has introduced Bronkhorst EL-FLOW Prestige line of mass flow meters/controllers for gases. The latest generation has benefits based upon further advances in flow-signal processing and a highly stable flow control regime that is virtually impervious to process fluctuations, the company says.
The optoNCDT 1420 smart laser triangulation displacement sensor from Hoskin Scientific is said to offer a unique combination of speed, size, performance and application versatility for displacement, distance and position measurements.
With the Ralston Instruments PSV Test suite of software and hardware, it is said to be possible to conduct the test and record most of the information on a FieldLab calibrator. After the test is completed the data is then transferred electronically to a PC where a certificate with graphs, customer data, tag data and other required information can be created.
