Oxford Brookes Formula Student team used a Correvit S-Motion 2 Axis Optical Sensor from Kistler Instruments to obtain the key data needed for accurate, real world tyre modelling.
Highly stress resistant 'Y' rubber compound from Reich-Kupplungen increases the life of Arcusaflex couplings in thermally critical applications.
Thanks to low operating costs, intrinsic mechanical properties, and the increased production of light vehicles, the global welding products market is set to surge, climbing from $11.82 billion in 2015 to $19.76 billion by 2025.
Paul Trevitt, Operations and Engineering Manager, for Bürkert Fluid Control Systems, looks at the advantages of this evolving concept and how it can be implemented in process control scenarios.

Last year, the company was on course for a turnover of £1.6bn and saw Europe as a key market, with a 36 percent growth in UK sales.
In this advanced technological age machines continue to outstrip man in terms of speed and efficiency. Fully automated systems are commonplace but technology can also greatly assist in human based operations bringing vastly improved output. Pick-to-light technology is a perfect example of machine aiding man in traditional labour intensive tasks.
Connected vehicles are a manifestation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and securing the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is rapidly growing in importance. There are several areas of concern when it comes to securing a vehicle and the requirements are being heightened with the advent of autonomous cars.
Smart manufacturing is developing momentum. Many machine builders and their end customers are beginning to put the foundation in place that will enable them to benefit from the intelligence machines can bring.
We exist in a world which has experienced rapid sensor proliferation; in fact, sensors are so commonplace now that we do not think twice as we each carry multiple different types with us daily in our mobile phones. These sensors provide the ability to detect simple changes in pressure, temperature, acceleration and gravity as well as more advanced sensors like GPS, RADAR, LIDAR and image sensors.
