Industry news:
Reflecting 30 years of growth
Second Quarter 2024, News & events, Editor's Choice, WEG Africa

Starting out in 1994 to serve the metropolitan area with a range of low-voltage electric motors, WEG Africa’s Cape Town branch has grown. Testament to this is the fact that it has again outgrown its premises, and last year relocated to larger, well-equipped facilities in Richmond Business Park.

Selection of two-port valves: an open and shut case
Second Quarter 2024, Pneumatic systems & components, SMC Corporation South Africa

Little consideration is generally given to two-port valves because they are often perceived as simple devices that only open and close to control downstream fluid supply. Although this is mechanically true, choosing the optimal two-port valve for your application can make a big difference, saving space, weight and energy consumption.

Bending the law of size, power and speed
Second Quarter 2024, Hydraulic systems & components, Hagglunds Drives SA

The Hägglunds Quantum hydraulic motor range exceeds previous performance limits in torque, speed and efficiency. Hägglunds Quantum is the new name for the Hägglunds CB range, and these direct drives can be used in heavy-duty and mobile applications.

More movement on the market
Second Quarter 2024, Electrical switching & drive systems & components

If you want to move something, you have to be able to control the movement. When positioning in the nanometre range everything matters and requires high performance motion control. Six years ago, Aerotech therefore set itself the goal of revolutionising the market for precision motion and machine control systems.

High-performance additives protect gears
Second Quarter 2024, Electrical switching & drive systems & components, Bearing Man Group T/A BMG

The BMG team works closely with key players in diverse sectors to enhance production efficiencies, minimise downtime and extend the service life of power transmission systems and industrial equipment.

Tyre-actuated globe valve
Second Quarter 2024, Pneumatic systems & components, Parker Hannifin - Sales Company South Africa

Parker Hannifin has launched a tyre-actuated pneumatic valve in its Bestobell cryogenic globe valve range. The valve can be operated remotely with a single switch command, providing much greater speed and convenience than a manually operated type.

Integrated Air Solutions expands its compressor rental service
Second Quarter 2024, Pneumatic systems & components

The significant growth of the industrial air compressor rental division launched by Integrated Air Solutions under a year ago, has prompted the need for more resources and equipment. Headed up by Rudolf ...

High-performance motion control for teabag packaging machine
Second Quarter 2024, Electrical switching & drive systems & components, Beckhoff Automation

Teepak relies on PC-based control and drive technology from Beckhoff to set new benchmarks for speed and precision in its teabag packaging machines.
