This presents a challenge to ports all over the world. The performance of a crane is directly dependent on its electrification system. And that infrastructure must continuously operate without malfunctions seven days a week, 24 hours a day. As there are various power supply options, it can be difficult to make a decision about the right system.
Machine failures and downtimes are among the biggest cost drivers in industry. It is therefore important for maintenance personnel to act in good time to prevent unplanned stoppages. With the new i.Sense EC.W low-cost service life sensor from igus, users can now make their e-chain smart from just 248 euros. Thanks to real-time condition monitoring of the energy chain, maintenance is easier and more cost-effective over the entire service life.
You have certainly heard of it – the new SEW-Eurodrive: Movilink® DDI generation of drives. They are drive motors with a digital data interface. The supply cable is a hybrid cable with a coaxial element. So far, so good! But of course you would also like to have this engine generation in SRUs, cross-traversing trolleys, […]
Internet of Things, big data and autonomous robots: the transition to Industry 4.0 is in full swing. This also applies to components that work in machines and have long since become smart by providing data on their condition, for example. But integrating smart technologies is often complex for companies and involves external installation effort. This is exactly where we start with the SMS module for our i.Sense systems.
One might think that I would have said everything you could say about the autoglide 5 by now, but I haven’t come close. The autoglide 5 still has some advantages over the basic chain, including the following: The autoglide 5’s special crossbars increase the load-bearing surfaces or sliding surfaces. Larger sliding surfaces also mean lower […]
