Bulk solids handling

Most manufacturing plants need some method of transporting bulk materials around site, or transporting to the customer

Robust and compact sensors for greater flexibility

Sensors can be used in applications such as level measurement or assembly and handling technology

Variable gripping based on the human hand

Typical applications include auxiliary robotics, assembly tasks or in production facilities

Conveying and sorting in one

Conveyor consists of numerous bellows modules that deform the surface creating a wave motion that transports the objects in a targeted manner

Sanitary bulk bag filler has metal detection

Detects metal in the free-fall stream of material entering the filler, and then ejects it through a chute that discharges into a removable drum

Parked-off brake increases safety for on-site conveyor maintenance

Steve Powell looks at parked-off conveyor brakes, and how they can improve safety during maintenance.

Two component metering, mixing and dispensing

Designed for use with two component materials, such as silver loaded conductive epoxies, silicones or polyurethanes

Making sense of real-time load measurement

The handling of dry bulk materials used to be a completely manual process, but it is now being increasingly automated in a drive to reduce both the costs and the risks of injury, while also increasing throughput and accuracy

Containing dust contamination

The working conditions of a cement plant do not foster long service life for machinery, due to dust, heat, moisture and vibration. Therefore it is essential that every opportunity is taken to improve the efficiency and reliability of the plant. Mary Fletcher reports

Containing dust contamination

Handling materials poses many risks, dust explosions being one of the most serious. New developments in dust handling equipment are helping to mitigate this hazard. Sean Ottewell reports

Tackling high flow rates and custody transfers

Accuracy and reliability dominate the demands that process companies make on their flowmeter technologies, particularly when it comes to high flow rates and custody transfer. Eugene McCarthy reports

Conveying and sorting in one

Festo’s WaveHandler modular conveyor with intelligent subsystems

All-electric tube benders take a step forwards

Pioneering development opens opportunities in shipbuilding, powergen, oil & gas and more

Modular roller tracks

Applications include manufacturing situations between machining stations and storage locations providing stock mobility

Degassing rotors for secondary aluminium processing applications

Morgan has produced the first one-piece degassing rotor in silicon carbide, delivering an alternative to the graphite material

Higher pressure diaphragm pumps available

100 bar pressure diaphragm pumps announced by pump industry expert

New valve showcased at trade show

Ham-Let introduces ultra-fast diaphragm valve at Semicon West 2014
