Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.
A key part of reliability is maintenance. Reliability of an elevator is an important factor in determining the overall success and profitability of a facility. As we all know "Elevator System" is highly specialized machinery that requires technicians that have a wider array of knowledge in maintaining the system to be safe and reliable. So the company is always on the lookout for design enhancements that will keep its elevators moving with the least amount of maintenance.
Of the wide variety of equipment used by the pharmaceutical industry, vacuum pumps are predominant. They are used in research labs and large-scale production units of bulk drugs, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and by intermediates manufacturers. Various pharmaceutical processes, including degassing, vacuum distillation, crystallization, drying, freeze drying and sterilization utilize vacuum pumps. These vacuum pumps ensure high efficiency and low cost of operation by minimizing wear and leakage. The high demands made on vacuum pumps can be optimally fulfilled with the help of RINGFEDER® Locking Assemblies. Read this article to learn how!
Ignoring induced forces or the faulty design of belt conveyor pulleys can cause high repair costs. Resulting damage may show itself in shaft breakage, axial movement or plastic deformation of the pulley bottom. Apart from that, downtime losses accrue which can quickly amount to several millions.
