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...)
Functional safety
A safety related control function is one of the measures that makes a contribution to the overall reduction of risk with machinery. As digitalisation and automation progress, so electrical, electronic or programmable electronic systems (E/E/PES) are used increasingly in the field of safety (more...)
How to choose a screw drive
Anyone regularly using simple slotted drive screws – with a traditional straight bladed screwdriver, will be aware of its shortcomings, and with a power driver then even more so. The old-style slotted drive will “cam-out” easily, is almost impossible to centre and if the tool or (more...)

In times of uncertainty, make the most of your assets
Any change or upheaval that impacts on a company’s trading environment brings with it challenges, but also opportunities. Karl Lycett of Rittall looks at the role of enclosure climate control. It’s safe to say that there is a great deal of uncertainty at the moment. In these (more...)
Keeping the finishing line in sight
The Sydney Opera House turned out to be one of the most disastrous construction projects in history, running vastly over time and budget. Here Kevin Cook of Intertronics gives his top tips for ensuring a prototype can be turned into an efficiently manufactured product. Designed by Danish architect (more...)
Linear rail: science or simply a well engineered product
David Chanin of Matara examines some of the design considerations when selecting linear rail, and the factors that can impact on operating lifespan. When choosing a linear rail there have always been a number of external factors to consider, such as load, speed, repeatability, environmental (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...)
Perfect timing
In the industrial world, timing belts are growing in popularity due to improved efficiency and reduced maintenance when compared with traditional friction belts. However, different applications have different demands, and it is crucial to consider power transmission requirements, and the environment (more...)
Robust linear guides excel in harsh industrial environment
The concrete industry is one of the most challenging environments for linear motion products. High levels of fine dust are created when cutting concrete, causing a dirty, polluted environment that many systems would not be able to cope in. For one Belgian company, that made the choice of linear (more...)
