Capable of attaining a depth of 0.4mm, the XF530p is the world’s first portable deep marking by micro-percussion machine – which stands out for its versatility and ease of use. Whether it is used on tubes or smooth surfaces, it is simply applied to the part, with no need for other pre-tension equipment or supplementary positioning. It can mark pipelines (oil, mining, gas), lifting/hoisting equipment (pallet trucks, forklift trucks), "off the road" vehicles and even naval constructions and metallic structures.
The ARO Fluid Technologies division of Ingersoll Rand Industrial Technologies has released a new line of portable air-operated diaphragm pumps specially developed for mining, construction, sump and other operations where a reliable, de-watering and solids handling pump is an every day requirement. Pit Boss pumps are built to handle the toughest applications while ensuring high flow rates of up to 821 L/min. Notably, they are equipped with a diaphragm that lasts up to four times longer than competitive models and with a patented air motor that guarantees worry-free operation without ice over or stall out.
Amitech Germany, a member of the AMIANTIT Group, has been awarded a major con-tract concerning the supply of approximately 20 km FLOWTITE GRP pipes utilized for the drainage system of the new highway by-pass around Prague. This new highway is the most important project in this sector, not only in the Czech Republic but also in Central Europe. The entire pipeline length of the project is roughly 83km - as with many modern infrastructures, it contains several elevated roadways (about one third).
How to reach the best adhesion between rail and wheel at very high speed avoiding hazardous behaviours of software while braking in emergency conditions? FAIVELEY TRANSPORT provides a clever software free dual stage braking solution for very high speed trains.
MapleSim™, the new high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool from Maplesoft™, is now available in a Japanese Edition. It is a high-performance multi-domain modeling and simulation tool, which will dramatically reduce the time taken to bring products to market by using physical modeling techniques.
Technifor is completing its range of scribing machines with the introduction of the XF510Cr. Extremely compact and boasting multiple communication interfaces, it is the ideal solution for integrating on the production line, on turning platforms or on robot arms. Its compact size does not detract from its performance since the XF510Cr has the identical capacities of other models in the scribing range: noticeably quiet, it offers the best scribing speeds on the market and can combine DataMatrix codes. With its three models, XF510Cr, XF510Sr and XF510DR (with a marking field of 160mm x 50mm), Technifor continues to offer the most adaptable solution to all the industry’s scribing needs.
Despite strong competition, Faiveley has won a contract to supply 489 braking systems to Datong Locomotives, for a value of over €60 million. Delivery will begin at the end of 2009 and will continue over the following three years. This project will require complex multi-site co-ordination between two local sites, Qingdao Faiveley SRI Rail Brake Co. Ltd. and Shijiazhuang Jiaxiang Precision Machinery Co. Ltd and three European sites, Amiens, Piassasco and Landskrona.
