 Case Studies  
Maidstone-based Medway Marble, a specialist in granite worktops and a long-time user of HepcoMotion® linear motion products, says it has recently sold a stone cutting table-type machine featuring HepcoMotion® parts for nearly the same value as it was built some 12 years ago. In the years between, the machine has been exposed to an extremely aggressive stone cutting environment – grinding dust turns to an abrasive paste when it mixes with coolant water from the cutting wheel.

New chain keeps the rounds rolling
When the demand for your product increases, it is desirable to be able to increase production levels to meet customer requirements; hopefully without significant increases in production costs. This requires the usual increase in raw materials; however, it is also important to ensure that the production equipment is able to accommodate the heightened productivity. For a cheese manufacturer in France, a small oversight could have been avoided if expert advice had been taken sooner.

Keeping on track for World Cup success
With video analysis an essential part of professional football, all clubs in the first and second divisions in Germany used the VIS.TRACK tracking system during the seasons 2011/12 and 2012/13. In addition, trainers of FIFA World Cup winners, Germany, used parts of this system (VT.PanoramicView) during the tournament preparations. VIS.TRACK was jointly developed by deltatre (formerly known as IMPIRE) and STEMMER IMAGING.

Large-scale energy chain breathes life into Port of Felixstowe’s gigantic rail traverser
An igus energy chain system has recently been designed into the largest capacity rail traverser in the UK. Built by heavy rail lifting manufacturer Mechan Ltd, the traverser moves freight locomotives between eight lines at the Port of Felixstowe’s new North Rail Terminal. With its pivotal role within the Port’s rail network, the traverser’s reliability is paramount, while its environment presents a number of challenges.

TeePlug from Hylec-APL helps to protect Windsor Castle from flooding
Hylec-APL has supplied IP68 TeePlug connectors for use on a weir at the head of the Jubilee River. The river, which is man-made, is used to divert water away from the Thames and prevent flooding around Windsor, Eton and Maidenhead. The TeePlugs have been specified to facilitate quick replacement of the transducers which monitor the position of the weir's hydraulic cylinders; helping to ensure the flood defence's reliability.

Sensors 101 - Understanding Sensors within a fluid control system
In the world of fluid control systems today, very little can be achieved without the raw data supplied by sensors, which need to be carefully specified to ensure that they are suited to their application. These sensors can help facilitate a variety of tasks from displaying process information and performing control functions to operating alarms, but each one has to communicate information to a process controller.

Kieran Bennett, of process control specialist Bürkert, looks at the range of sensors available, the different technologies used in their design and how the application affects the specification.
