The Grain Tech Expo will be held in Kiev from 19 to 21 February 2019. In the Ukraine, the agriculture industry is an important branch of the economy with a corresponding need for conveyor equipment for grain, pulses, oil seed and fertiliser. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS energy efficient drive concepts for bulk materials make a major contribution to efficient operation of conveyor belts, screw conveyors, trough chain conveyors and elevators in the agriculture sector.
At Tire Technology 2019 in Hannover from 5 to 7 March 2019, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will present safe and efficient drive solutions for the tyre industry. Among other products, the North German drive specialists will be showing its LogiDrive systems, special extruder flanges and the NORD SK TU4-PNS PROFIsafe interface module.
Curtiss-Wright’s Sensors & Controls Division today announced the release of its newest Exlar® brand electric press actuator, the FTP160. The FTP160 is the second frame size of the high-force electric rod-style press actuators and is designed exclusively for press applications.
Three-phase power is often unavailable in rural and remote locations, which is a primary reason why farmers struggle to grow their operations. Any farm looking to run larger fans and motors to help increase storage and handling capacity have thus far been forced into using traditional solutions such as rotary phase converters, which are costly, have big capacitor banks and a high amp draw, running up electricity bills and erasing profits. Now, however, increasing numbers are turning to the latest Mitsubishi Electric variable frequency drives (VFDs), which allow a three-phase motor to run from a single-phase electric supply without a phase converter, facilitating greater power and lower energy consumption.
These new models are the result of several years of research and development. They allow for the first time to produce a power of up to 200 kVA from a LSA 44.3 / TAL 044, while offering genset manufacturers significant gains in efficiency, footprint and transient performances.
