DZ 12K S MAGNUM five axis is a double-spindle, highly productive, 5-axis complete machining center with 2-axis tilt rotary table for milling and turning complex workpieces in one set-up. The possibility of complete machining in a single set-up reduces the total machining time and the costs per piece, simplifies material flows and allows customers to manufacture with less staff. Compared to the single-spindle solution, DZ 12K S MAGNUM five axis doubles the productivity while saving up to 30% in energy costs at the same time.
The new Falcon industrial broadband router with integrated Ethernet routing switch is designed to provide two-way high-speed secure communication between remote sites enabling economical and reliable connection to equipment such as SCADA, PLCs, RTUs and I/O devices.
Iberdrola Renewables, the second-largest energy provider in North America has chosen PC VUE SCADA system to monitor it’s US wind farms, producing 3,600 megawatts of wind power over 35 independent power plants. Each of the 2479 wind turbine supplies about 300 to 350 data points, which equates to approximately 700,000 to 850,000 I/O data points on nearly two dozen servers.
With many new features, such as active device protection, channel oriented PLC design, point wiring and improvements in graphic functions, EPLAN Platform 2.0 ensures greater project reliability, functionality and speed. For this new release, more than 1,000 customer requirements were considered during development.
EPLAN Pro Panel offers specific 3D functionalities to define electrical and fluid engineering mounting layouts. The module starts with the brand-new 3D technology of the EPLAN Platform und facilitates a design process across various disciplines based on a common database. It provides uniform and consistent engineering with sustained data integrity.
FLSmidth, a world leader in Electrostatic Precipitator technology, develops advanced pollution control systems in order to comply with the stringent industrial standards. Particle removal efficiency is controlled in real time by sophisticated micro processor based voltage controls. FLSmidth decided to integrate HMS’s communication system to inform their users of the status of the air pollution control equipment. Because they were able to implement this interface with a standard and an easily integrated solution, they selected HMS Industrial Networks.
Maple 14 Grid Computing Toolbox offers built-in integration with Windows® HPC Server 2008 R2 and enables distributed computing using Maple, the primary tool for engineers to solve complex mathematical problems and create rich technical documents.
With its broad spectrum of gearmotors and frequency inverters, NORD Drivesystems offers a large selection of drive components for the automotive production sector, where Profibus and Profinet are the industry standard for communication tasks. The Profibus versions of the SK 200E family of decentralised frequency inverters from NORD Drivesystems are now certified compliant with the Profibus DP standard. The SK 200E frequency inverter is mounted directly on the drive in place of the terminal box, with the combination of frequency inverter and gearmotor forming a complete drive unit.
Involved in most of the biggest projects around the world, such as the East European high speed line - the first interoperable high speed line in Europe - as well as High Speed One in England and the Cairo Metro, the Infrastructure Group of the French Federation of Railway Industries, achieved a turnover of €1700m in 2009, 40% came from exports. It employs more than 7000 people, 2700 of whom are based outside France. Its activities were featured at the Innotrans 2010 trade fair in Berlin.
