High force actuators: convert from hydraulic to electric
It makes sense to convert many hydraulic linear motion applications to electric, reaping the benefits of improved control of process variables, better accuracy, the ability to handle complex motion profiles and more. But appropriately sizing an electric actuator is crucial. We asked the experts from (more...)
Stäubli upgrades MPC rail industry connector
Stäubli Electrical Connectors has upgraded its MPC range of rail industry modular power connectors as part of its process of continuous improvement. The enhancements include new generations of straight and right-angled connectors. The insulators in the new ranges are made of improved plastics (more...)

Considerations for selecting electric actuators for harsh environments
Motion control technology can reduce the need for human exposure in harsh environments, while at the same time, enabling performance of operations beyond human capability. But mechanical components require protection too, and careful consideration of materials, coatings, sealing strategies, (more...)
Move high loads easily with lube-free ball transfer units
Ball tables are used wherever sensitive or heavy loads are transported from A to B: items such as circuit boards, food, goods in airports, glass panes or goods in the sheet metal processing industry. By using ball transfer units in the conveyor tables, loads can be transferred quickly and easily in (more...)
New oil-free drum motor for applications in the food industry
Based on its Drum Motor Platform, Interroll has introduced a new generation of oil-free drum motors, ideal for hygiene-sensitive applications. These are synchronous oil-free drum motors which, by nature, are very efficient, which means less heat losses and a much higher power density, as opposed to (more...)
Autonomous mobile robots support a lean approach to operations
The fast and easy integration of autonomous mobile robots make them capable of adding new efficiencies almost immediately. With low initial costs and fast optimisation of processes, they offer fast return on investment – often in less than six months. As manufacturers embrace a lean approach (more...)
Electronics add intelligence to plastics for longer life
Igus has been steadily adding smart capabilities to its plastics portfolio, and now it has enhanced its range by adding more intelligence for longer service life and low cost automation. By monitoring the health of linear guide systems, cables and energy chains continuously, timely warnings for (more...)
Moving things forward – R&D in linear motion technology
We talk to Steve Rendall, design manager at HepcoMotion, a leading manufacturer in linear technology, about the role and future of research and development in linear motion systems. From high-speed packaging applications, to pick and place gantry systems to automated production cells, linear (more...)
New starting points for building a smart food factory
The ultimate goal of the smart factory is appealing, but the journey can seem daunting, especially in sectors such as food and beverage where margins are tight. But taking the first steps can be easier than you might think. Food producers currently span the full automation spectrum, from huge (more...)
Renewable energy and large-load motion control
The Commissioner for Irish Lights is a key maritime organisation tasked with delivering essential safety around the coast of Ireland, providing aids to navigation through modern digital services such as GPS and radar as well more traditional resources including lighthouses, buoys and beacons.
