The worldwide spread of the corona virus is also a concern for Dräger. We are seeing a significant increase in demand worldwide for our ventilators, the corresponding accessories and personal protective equipment. At the same time, it is our duty of care to provide our employees with the best possible protection. This presents us with challenges that we reassess and solve every day.
Open pit excavators and spreaders are real giants among machinery. Every day they do the hardest work under extreme conditions - dust, dirt, rain, heat. A great strain also imposed on the rotary encoders, which are responsible for speed control of conveyor belts. Many manufacturers therefore rely on HeavyDuty encoders from Baumer Hübner. What does it take for encoders to deserve the hallmark "HeavyDuty"?
Rohde & Schwarz highlights its innovative 5G conformance solution for both FR1 and FR2, featuring the latest version of the popular R&S TS8980 RF test system, now covering 5G NR. To enable over the air (OTA) testing, the solution includes the new R&S ATS1800C compact antenna test range (CATR) based 5G NR mmWave test chamber.
Rohde & Schwarz and Goodix (CommSolid) are first to demonstrate exhaustive test functions for the newly introduced NB-IoT wake up signal (NWUS), the latest 3GPP Release 15 feature for NB-IoT devices to further reduce power consumption. For NB-IoT long-term monitoring applications, this wake up signal can be leveraged to enable either far longer battery life without upgrading the battery, or as a way to reduce battery size while retaining the device’s service life.
SICK has combined its proven MB1 mechanical safety bolt for enclosed hazard areas with its advanced TR110 non-contact safety lock to deliver a high-performance PLe (EN ISO 13849) safety solution with maximum machine availability.
Global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, has collaborated with the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in Canada, to produce two ocean turbine parts using additive manufacturing (AM) for industrial design firm Biome Renewables. Renishaw helped manufacture a PowerCone® retrofit that co-rotates with the turbine's rotor and curved propellors to reduce drag. Using metal AM to produce these parts reduced costs by 80 per cent and meant that two turbine components could be developed in two months.
