NEW TWO-STAGE HELICAL BEVEL GEARBOXES WITH OUTPUT TORQUES UP TO 50 NM

The NORD helical bevel gearbox series, now available for torques from 50 Nm to 660 Nm, ensures highly efficient speed adjustment in various applications.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS expands its latest series of slim two-stage helical bevel gearboxes, adding a new smaller unit for output torques up to 50 Nm.

H

ighly efficient helical bevel type units therefore now complement the line-up of worm gearboxes that is already available for small loads. Thanks to superior manufacturing quality standards, the gear units are highly resilient and withstand large forces on the output shaft.

All versions feature a very high power density, ensuring robust reliability and easy handling. By default, the gearboxes support reverse operation. NORD customconfigures motors, drive electronics, accessories, gaskets, and lubricants for all industries.

The short-term overload tolerance is 275%, which leaves enough time for the motor protection to kick in. Mechanical blockages usually do not cause damage, but the drive can start right up again without service interruption.

One of the options, for instance, is the heavy-duty corrosionprotection treatment nsd tupH for the enclosure.

MORE INFORMATION

The new units are available for gear ratios from 3.58 to 61.88. They add a new size to the existing series that now comprises six sizes with output torques up to 660 Nm.

EXLUX LINEAR LUMINAIRES FROM R. STAHL: LATEST LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY IN TRIED-AND-TESTED FITTING

Energy-efficient general lighting retrofits in any climate are straightforward with R. STAHL EXLUX 6002/6402 series linear luminaires.

Despite a familiar appearance due to their tried-and-tested fitting design, R. STAHL 6002 and 6402 series linear luminaires use the latest LED technology inside. Suitable for ceiling installation, use as pendant lights, or pole mounting, these explosion-proof devices enable particularly energy-efficient general lighting in zones 1, 21, 2 and 22.

T

heir familiar form factor ensures that changing over from traditional linear luminaires with fluorescent tubes to LED light sources is an especially straightforward process. In photometric terms, one 52 W luminaire is fully equivalent to two conventional 36 W fluorescent lamps. However, up to 100,000 hours of operation mean they achieve a far superior service life, as well as a high luminous flux of up to 5800 lm and excellent luminaire efficiency of well over 100 lm per W.

MORE INFORMATION

In addition, thanks to their slim, low-profile GRP housing, the lights weigh at least one third less than widely available competing products in the same class. Series 6002 models feature “increased safety” (Ex e) type of protection, while 6402 series luminaires are “non-sparking” (Ex nA). Notable for their very robust IP66/IP67 design, the products can be used at environmental temperatures ranging from -30 °C to +55 °C.

EPLAN PRESENTS THE NEW SMART WIRING APPLICATION SIMPLFYING CONTROL CABINET WIRING

Smart Wiring Application: The Smart Wiring Application provides step-by-step instructions for the panel shop based on engineering data.

Wiring a control cabinet requires a lot of time and expertise, however Eplan is making the process much easier: the Smart Wiring Application will be presented at the Hannover Messe. The software visualises the wiring and provides the necessary production data 100 per cent digitally. The ad-vantage: knowledge of the control technology is plugged into the system in the future. Users benefit from substantial timesavings for last-minute changes because the software also handles the often complex task of project comparison.

mart Wiring Application: the name reveals what’s behind the new software – greatly simplifying the entire control cabinet wiring process. Eplan is presenting this new solution at the Hannover Messe. Whether it’s the source/target description, terminal point handling, cross sections, colour, wire length, end procedures or exact cable routing: the software provides a visualisation and the necessary wiring information and engineering data for mounting assembly within the control cabinet.

The advantage: the schematic-based wiring – a timeconsuming, error-prone process requiring a great deal of know-how – is no longer required. The Smart Wiring Application’s digital representation refers to the virtual model’s 3D-layout in Eplan Pro Panel. Yet the new application can be utilised to enhance productivity even without a 3D-layout.

As an example, Excel lists with all the required connection information can be read into the program; the 3D visualisation of the routing pathways and assembly steps cannot be provided – however, the step-by-step execution as well as the comparison of various connection lists for last-minute changes remain available. Workers have clear information at all times about how far along the wiring process is as a whole, what still remains to be wired, which potentially necessary changes they must make and how to make them. The Smart Wiring Application will be available with the release of Eplan Platform 2.6 in September 2016. System-guided application A clearly designed menu describes every single connection. This information is augmented with the equipment visualisation, including terminal points and the planned cable routing for the wires within the control cabinet.

NEW “EDGE GATEWAYS” FROM HMS ENABLE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN IT-SYSTEMS AND THE FACTORY FLOOR

HMS Industrial Networks now introduces yet another gateway family for the Industrial Internet of Things. The new Anybus .NET gateways enable real-time data from industrial machinery to be presented to .NETbased IT applications. This means that .NET programmers can get data directly from a PLC system on the other side of “the edge” to be used in applications for statistics, analysis or maintenance. The first .NET gateways are available for PROFIBUS and PROFINET.

MORE INFORMATION

A quick and easy way to realize IIoT The basic prerequisite for Industrial IoT is that industrial applications are able to communicate with IT systems. However, the operational technology (OT) on the factory floor uses fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks, which are designed for real-time communication – by default separated from the IT-infrastructure. The Anybus .NET gateways address this situation by acting as translators which send and receive data between PROFIBUS- or PROFINETnetworks and IT platforms using .NET as a framework. The communication is set up in a couple of minutes and the .NET gateways are therefore a very fast way to realize IIoT.

14 | Industry Asia Pacific | April 2016

12

The result is that IT systems get unprecedented access to realtime data from the factory floor which enables predictive maintenance, KPI-follow-up, machine analytics, data mining, big data processing, production statistics and much more – without interfering with the industrial processes. The solution can be used for a wide range of use cases, from simple transfer of KPI values, advanced messages with structured data types, or ultra-fast transfer of I/O data for “big data.” How it works In addition to connecting the data from the industrial processes to the IT-systems, the .NET gateways make the data understandable on the IT-side. The information exchange between the Operational Technology (OT) side and the Information Technology (IT) side is defined in a spreadsheet template which defines how the data is mapped, tagged and presented to IT-applications. The


NEWS

spreadsheet is uploaded to the HMS code generator which automatically creates a customized high level C# API (events and Post methods) that is easy to integrate directly into a .NET application. It also generates a customized GSDML file for the PLC. Easy for both .NET and PLC programmers “The Anybus .NET gateways represent a very fast and easy way to realize the Industrial Internet of Things,” says Markus Bladh, Product Manager at HMS Industrial Networks. “For more than 20 years, HMS has been offering industrial communication solutions between different standards on the factory floor, and we now use this experience to offer a gateway to .NET. This is truly an ‘edge gateway’ in the sense that it creates a bridge between the IT and OT side – .NET programmers get access to data from industrial machinery, while PLC programmers can rest assured that the data access does not interfere with their critical systems.” www.tekinfo.link/r7d5a831135 MORE INFORMATION 14 | Industry Asia Pacific | April 2016

A GAME CHANGER FOR CBRN DECONTAMINATION FROM SCOTT SAFETY

A new portable airborne and surface decontamination solution from Scott Safety is achieving a military first – decontamination of chemical, biological and radiological vapours, liquids and particles simultaneously in as little as five minutes. A manufacturer of respiratory protection for the UK MoD, Scott Safety has been at the forefront of CBRN defence and civil protection for over 80 years.

T

he Light Decontamination System (LDS) can decontaminate environments as large as 500m³. At only 22 kg, LDS is the lightest portable decontamination system in its class, enabling instant decontamination of equipment, personnel, infrastructure and terrain. “LDS will revolutionise the armed forces” says Dr David Crouch, Global Product Manager for Military & Civil Defence at Scott Safety. “It’s lightweight, portable yet extremely powerful. In independent validation trials, the system decontaminated anthrax by 99.9999999 percent from a 100m³ space, in less than five minutes.”

The LDS utilises new Scott Safety atomisation technology to create a fine mist to ensure even and consistent coverage and haptic dry surfaces. Rapidly projecting these droplets in the form of a dense and turbulent mist that reaches all airborne and surface threats simultaneously the system is capable of delivering CBRN decontaminants to all nonline of sight surfaces. This process drastically reduces both the chemical footprint and time required for effective decontamination. Unlike many traditional decontamination systems that utilise liquids, this new process forces powders to behave like a gas, ensuring that sensitive and electronic equipment is not damaged.

MORE INFORMATION

Environmentally friendly and cost-efficient, LDS typically requires only five percent of decontaminant compared to traditional systems due to the gas-like behaviour of the small droplet mist. Easily directed and controlled with a lance, the system achieves a projection distance of up to 30 metres and is compatible with a range of chemistries.

14 | Industry Asia Pacific | April 2016

14


NEWS

For chemical and biological decontamination, the LDS is chemically agnostic so can use a diverse range of decontaminants including delivery of Alkoxides, Hydrogen Peroxide, Hypochlorous Acid, Peracetic Acid esters, Chlorine Dioxide, Sodium Hypochlorite and Potassium Peroxymonosulfate. Radiological and nuclear decontamination includes delivery of trippable coatings, fixatives and other sequestering liquids.

For further information, please visit www.scottsafety.com/emea

Compatible with a range of facemasks, including the General Service Respirator (GSR) developed for the UK MoD, the LDS can be used in a wide range of hazard management situations. e.g. critical and iconic infrastructure, airport buildings, hospitals, portable isolation units, underground facilities, buildings and rooms in general, containers, storage facilities, aircraft and ships holds, vehicles and so on.

MORE INFORMATION

Flexible and scalable, Scott Safety’s decontamination solution can be adapted for large scale infrastructure whereby longer duration or wider area capability of up to 2000m³ is required. The Remote Decontamination System (RDS) operates using a remotely operated 360° collapsible tripod to provide increased levels of decontamination efficacy and performance. The solution is highly portable and is suitable for internal and external decontamination of larger military equipment including armoured vehicles, aircraft and other transport systems.

JUNGHEINRICH UNVEILS TOTALLY NEW COMBI STACKER

Two-shift operation with a single battery / New synchronous reluctance motor / Lower energy consumption, thanks to intelligent lightweight design / Vibration damping system results in enhanced performance and safety on uneven floors.

J

ungheinrich is market-launching a new narrow-aisle forklift – its EKX 514-516 electric order picker and trilateral forklift – in short, a “combi” (combination) stacker. With a payload capacity of 1,600 kilograms and a lift height of 17.5 metres, the new model will be officially unveiled before a global trade audience at the LogiMAT 2016 exhibition in Stuttgart (hall 9, stand 9B02 and 9B04).

Efficient and Economical, with Just One Battery for Two Shifts The truck is equipped with state-of-the-art control technology, completely new motor technology and an efficient energy management system. Its intelligent lightweight design makes use of high-strength steels, resulting in a weight reduction of 150 kilograms. “This means we can guarantee the efficient and economical operation of the stacker over two shifts with a single battery charge,” states Dr Klaus-Dieter Rosenbach, Jungheinrich Board of Management member in charge of Logistics Systems Business.

MORE INFORMATION

For two-shift operations this eliminates not only the need for extra batteries, but also for charging stations and other expensive equipment, while at the same time reducing manpower requirements. Rosenbach continues: “This is not a mere promise of two-shift operation without changing the battery – we also back up this claim vis-à-vis the customer.” In other words, if a battery fails to hold a charge for two full shifts, Jungheinrich will replace it free of charge.

NEWS

Economical Motors: 93 Percent of Energy Converted into Output Completely new motor technology developed by Jungheinrich is at the core of the EKX 514-516. This consists of a synchronous reluctance motor which has been used for the first time in this vehicle – a motor which combines the high performance and energy efficiency of synchronous motors with the cost advantages and low maintenance requirements of three-phase AC asynchronous motors. According to Rosenbach the motor’s efficiency factor of IE31 is the highest achievable in forklift operations. The new motor technology converts around 93 percent of the energy consumed into actual output, cutting energy losses by half. “This means that energy consumption has been reduced by a further 15 percent compared to the previous model,” remarks Rosenbach. “And this, despite the vehicle’s much higher performance,” he adds.

The new EKX 514-516 is fitted with a number of different modules for process integration, including RFID technology, redundant height and distance measurement and the Jungheinrich Logistics Interface. If the optional Jungheinrich warehouse navigation system with semi-automatic target approach is added, throughput can be enhanced by up to 25 percent. Dr Rosenbach concludes: “By combining intelligent assistance systems with high-performance synchronous reluctance motors, Jungheinrich has made great strides in further optimising energy efficiency – putting us in great shape to meet the future challenges of Intralogistics 4.0.” www.jungheinrich.com www.ntpforklifts.com.au

MORE INFORMATION

Reaching Great Heights Smoothly and Safely, Thanks to Vibration Damping For the first time Jungheinrich is also equipping this model series with a patented vibration damping system. The optional Floor Pro module reduces lateral oscillations of the mast and driver’s cab which are caused by uneven floors or other floor types not designed for narrow-aisle forklifts. “This system provides the user with the opportunity to travel more smoothly and up to 30 percent faster on substandard surfaces,” explains Rosenbach. In addition the system is easy on loads and vehicle and helps reduce the level of

maintenance. The goal is to allow narrow-aisle trucks to work safely and efficiently even on floors that were originally designed solely for reach trucks – even at lift heights of 10 metres.

VERLINDE VT HOIST USED FOR PELLOBY ONE-OF-A-KIND INVERTED TRAVELLING JIB CRANE

PELLOBY recently installed a unique inverted travelling jib crane featuring a VERLINDE VT2 EUROBLOC wire rope hoist at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) ISIS complex at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.

SIS is a world-leading materials research centre which produces beams of neutrons and muons that can delve into the complexity of matter using a suite of beamline instruments, which gives unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale.

Pelloby were asked to come up with a lifting solution to give ISIS and the various research teams at the complex, suitable craneage access to these dead zone areas - the aim being to lift beamline instrument components, shielding and other materials in and out of the restricted crane access areas.

A series of three adjacent overhead cranes span the width of one of the two large ISIS experimental halls onsite that allow access to the various beam defining equipment areas. However as the building’s capabilities were expanded to accommodate additional instruments, some of the new beam defining equipment areas were located in a ‘cranage dead zone’ which the existing overhead cranes couldn’t reach.

Working closely with STFC engineers, our designers set to work and the result was an inverted travelling jib crane which can traverse the length of the building along a 53 metre gantry support rail system, while also providing continuous 360 degree access in a five metre radius thanks to a powered rotating jib arm. This innovative modified travelling jib crane can support loads of up to five tonnes thanks to a Verlinde VT2 Eurobloc hoist.

As the crane needed to access awkward spaces, operators had to be able to carefully navigate it around obstacles such as building stanchions and existing machinery. It is therefore operated via an easy-to-use handheld radio control system which governs the longitudinal travelling motion, the jib arm rotation and the movement of the electrically powered short headroom Verlinde wire rope hoist. Anti-clash sensors were fitted to the jib arm, which means the system automatically 14 | Industry Asia Pacific | April 2016

NORD CHINA HAS WON “2015 INNOVATIVE PRODUCT AWARD” OF DRIVE INDUSTRY

“nsd tupH” sealed surface conversion system, which was showcased by Nord (China) Power Transmission Co., Ltd. at PTC Asia 2015, has been honored with the “2015 Innovative Product Award” for the drive industry, issued by MM MaschinenMarkt China.

ORD DRIVESYSTEMS manufactures long-time corrosion-resistant drives by means of the nsd tupH sealed surface conversion system, which ensures economic and effective corrosion protection, since this protection is also unaffected by blows or scratches. The drives are tested and proven in applications with a maritime atmosphere. In demanding atmospheres, nsd tupH drives reliably perform much beyond the usual service life of paint-coated systems. Their resilience and prolonged service life significantly reduces the service and maintenance requirements placed on customers.

Nord has long been active around the world and has a history of 50 years as a manufacturer of drive technology. In China, the company has developed steadily for more than 10 years. All NORD components, including gears, motors, and drive electronics with intelligent functions are developed and produced in.house. NORD supplies complete drive solutions in more than 100 industries. In the future, Nord will actively introduce more advanced technology from Germany to China, so as to promote the comprehensive development of China's intelligent drive solutions. www.nord.com

In addition, the treatment ensures high process safety: since no coating is applied, but the surface itself is hardened, there can be no pollution of products or process media, as is often the case for instance with chipping paint. Even heavy impacts or scratches do not diminish the corrosion resistance. nsd tupH is approved for food applications according to FDA Title 21 CFR 175.300, and is available for all aluminum-enclosed drive systems –four gearbox families, smooth-surface motors, and distributed drive electronic control units. 14 | Industry Asia Pacific | April 2016
