Next Generation Machine Condition Monitoring

Robust, programmable, and modular technology can be tailored to accommodate a wide range of challenging mill conditions, including harsh operating environments, process parameter changes between steel grades, variable and low-speed equipment, shock loads, and frequent roll changes. Typical applications include main drive roughing and finishing stand gearboxes and pinion stands, rolling mill work and backup roll bearings, and fans, among others. 
The latest machine condition monitoring technologies for steel mill suppliers of flat sheet, coil and structural metals can be tailored to monitor critical equipment assets operating in a wide range of harsh functional environments, process parameter changes, variable and low-speed equipment, shock loads and frequent setups. For shops, there is also virus protection for machine tools.

Servomotors and Drives

HPB Motion Control will exhibit a Direct Drive motor (Torque Motor) and other servomotors and drives.
New AC servomotor and AC drive systems from HPB Motion Control include a Direct Drive Torque Motor, a permanent magnet Linear Servomotor, and an indexing Rotary Table.

Maximum Speed Without Sacrificing Torque

The TMK rotor and stator. Buried magnet technology provides a higher flux concentration that can produce up to 30 percent more continuous torque compared to traditional torque motors of the same size. 
Direct drive motors from ETEL improve the performance of machining centers, milling/turning machines, rotary tables/milling heads, and multi-spindle and transfer machines.

Magnetic Field Sensor For Space Critical Applications

Thanks to its small dimensions of 3.8 x 24 x 3 mm, The BMF 243 is the ideal choice for particularly small grippers and cylinders with C-slots. With its integrated bracket, the sensor is simply inserted into the slot from above, fitting completely into the cylinder without protruding. The BMF 243 is supplied with a cable clip that guarantees optimum strain relief and secures cable routing. 
The flush mounting compact BMF 243 drop-in C-slot sensor for position detection from Balluff offers high performance reserves for cylinders with both weak as well as with strong magnets and offers high repeat accuracy and small hysteresis.
