There are endless ways to get your media from point A to point B. But there is only one best way. Festo wants you to find this way. The best solution possible for your process automation. They offer you everything from a single source – from the field level to the control level.
Supply chain issues are not anything new, but COVID-19 can be credited for the drastic change the global economy finds itself in today.
Many industries rely on the global supply chain to connect companies to their suppliers so they can turn the materials into the products they sell. Every part of the world has been affected differently by the pandemic as we are all recovering at different rates. The supply chain shortage erupted in early 2020 due to the COVID outbreak along with an increase in consumer demand. The backlog, closing of factories, labor issues, and equipment shortages all combined to be deemed the supply chain crisis which is still affecting everyone today.
Dedicated to high quality, innovative designs and comprehensive conveyor platforms, we deliver products equipped to accommodate virtually any material handling application and provide efficient solutions for a wide range of manufacturing industries.
This select range of products includes compact and robust valves, guided and mini slide units, compact cylinders, regulators, filter regulators and tubing. And they each form part of the Festo core range – take advantage of products which offer shorter delivery times and competitive prices from one single source supplier.
CPC’s NS1 Series is the smallest, non-drip, plastic coupling on the market. Design engineers find the diminutive size of the NS1 perfect when they’re needing a fluid connection in a compact space. Packed full of features, the NS1 Series includes non-spill shutoff valves that ensure drip-free disconnects and eliminate the need to purge air from the system. With its easy-to-use latch, the NS1 couplings offer strength and superior performance in a small form factor.
The NS1 ability to rotate allows the tubing to move freely or relax without kinking or leaking. With its functionality-sized latch, NS1 couplings connect and disconnect in any orientation.
With a class-leading reach of 950mm, and the ability to handle payloads up to 5kg, GoFa loves demanding, repetitive tasks. For maximum safety, it also features intelligent sensors in every joint that stop the robot within milliseconds if contact is detected.
Lubrication reduces friction and allows moving machine parts to slide smoothly past each other. Often, lubrication points are difficult to reach, over/under greased, or forgotten about entirely. Fact is, lubrication is used for 90% of all rolling and rotating parts. Bearings and their housings should be filled from 30% – 60% of their total capacity. When determining what percentage the bearing should be filled, consider:
High-performance (HPC) processing power is increasing all the time. Simultaneously, components are becoming smaller and denser, which means things are really heating up – literally. To handle the heat, liquid cooling is a must. Cutting edge artificial intelligence and HPC clusters don’t just require the highest performing GPUs and CPUs, they are now packed in incredibly dense configurations. That leads to substantially higher wattage densities at both the node and rack level, with rack power densities increasing to 80kW and beyond. Further, given their expense and the critical computing for research these systems are often dedicated to performing, these high-density clusters run at 100% capacity for sustained periods 24/7.
Active Data Centers run extremely hot. With so many servers producing heat, temperatures in Data Centers rise very quickly. To keep Server Farms running efficiently, hot and cold air must not mix between aisles, regardless of rack configuration and other design challenges. If unchecked, severe hardware damage can occur that may not be repairable. However, keeping optimal temperatures is expensive, forcing data center professionals to implement energy-saving solutions.
The bionically inspired ADHESO gripper technology is based on the principle of adhesion and uses intermolecularly acting Van der Waals forces to handle various workpieces.
The advantages of ADHESO gripper technology are revolutionary: gripping without residue, sensitive gripping without mechanical force, and no external power supply.
SCHUNK’s application experts take advantage of these benefits and develop customer-specific adhesive grippers with ADHESO gripper technology. Due to the high variability of the adhesive structures, grippers with ADHESO technology can be directly tailored to the requirements of your application.
