Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems will present its vision and mtu concepts for net zero-carbon mining operations at MINExpo 2021 (booth 7871 South Hall). The showcase includes both existing products and future technologies currently under development. In focus, is a groundbreaking new mtu concept for a hybrid haul truck which could help cut CO2 emissions by as much as 30%. It is based on existing mtu products and technologies that will be on display for the first time in this combination: a state-of-the-art 12V 2000 mining engine, together with an mtu EnergyPack battery system.
With the MMV 4200 / 5200 / 6200 models, EMCO introduces an extension to its MMV series, featuring enlarged travel paths (X= 4200 / 5200 / 6200) in response to increased demand in the travelling column machine segment. The machines with 3, 4 and 5 axes can be used for complete machining of very large and heavy parts in one clamping. The proven technology MMV 3200 has been kept in the new models: a high-performance motor spindle with 0 - 15,000 rpm speed range, 46 kW spindle power and up to 170 Nm torque. 40 tool pockets available as standard, optionally expandable up to 120 pockets. Thanks to the new modular system, customers do not have to choose between a smaller machine or one that is too large; variable sizes are possible up to 6,200 mm.
The main difference between the MMV 4200 / 5200 and 6200 and the previous model is the X-axis drive, which uses a rack-and-pinion system instead of ball screws. This ensures dynamic, fast and precise feed during machining. The demand for these high-performance machines comes mainly from the petroleum industry, railroad industry and intralogistics.
Green Hills Software has announced the selection of the INTEGRITY®-178 tuMP real-time operating system (RTOS) by Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) for their offering of the Military Global Positioning System User Equipment (MGUE) Increment (Inc) 2 Miniature Serial Interface (MSI) with Next-Generation Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC).
Laser profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon perform true 3D measurements based on calibrated data. TU-Darmstadt already uses this technology. The powerful 3D sensors of the scanCONTROL 2900 series perform high-resolution measurements of muscle mass or bones in combination with camera systems.
3D Systems (NYSE:DDD), the jewelry market leader in 100% lost wax casting, introduced VisiJet® Wax Jewel Red – the latest innovation to its materials portfolio that is transforming the art of jewelry production.
STMicroelectronics has announced the first multi-zone FlightSense time-of-flight sensor to be offered for general-purpose applications, bringing sophisticated distance sensing to the full spectrum of consumer and industrial products.
At this year's EMO, the world's leading international trade fair for metalworking in Milan (Oct. 4-9, 2021), the Eppinger Group from Denkendorf, Germany, will present its innovative tool holders and tool systems especially for turning/milling centres. Eppinger at EMO 2021 in hall 4, booth B11.
