When sensors (photoelectric, inductive, pressure, temperature etc) were in their infancy, they were difficult to configure, and users were relatively inexperienced.
Electron microscopy is a cornerstone technique for generating high resolution images in materials science and biology research, yet environmental interference is a common problem that can affect image quality.
SKF offers the widest range of sealed spherical roller bearings, making it possible to upgrade a broad range of equipment with a sealed bearing. By using sealed spherical roller bearings, you can reduce the need for maintenance, cut lubricant use and decrease the environmental impact.
Although most conveyor chain these days is wedge riveted as standard, the option to specify spin riveting is an important one and should be considered for critical applications both by designers of original equipment and maintenance engineers alike.
Renowned for its off-road capabilities, the latest iteration of one of the world’s most iconic 4-wheel drive vehicles is the toughest and most luxurious to date. Those qualities extend to the interior of the vehicle as well, with drivers and passengers expecting the toughest and most luxurious seats. This has been assured with the help of William Hughes, who fabricates a key structural element of the seat frame.
The biennial co-located events; Drives & Controls, Smart Industry Expo, Fluid Power & Systems, Plant & Asset Management, and Air-Tech Exhibitions – are once again set to return to Birmingham’s NEC between the 21-23 April 2020, alongside MACH 2020.
Andrew Borland, Industrial Engagement Manager with the Virtual Engineering Centre, explains how digital technologies such as advanced modelling, simulation and visualisation can revolutionise communication between company and client to deliver competitive edge and drive growth.
More than 380 teams from 36 countries compete in Formula Student, Europe’s most established educational engineering competition which uses motorsport to inspire students.
Many engineering organisations face major challenges when designing and delivering new products. When design issues are discovered during physical prototyping, the time and money required to fix these issues can be a major investment. Modern tools are helping companies perform more of this prototyping in a virtual space, where design issues can be discovered and fixed before a physical prototype is required.
