Magswitch Heavy Lift Frame 8000-M: Increase Productivity & Safety

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Oct 11, 2017 10:53:42 AM

Magswitch is a mechanical device capable of turning a permanent magnetic field on or off. The introduction of Magswitch technology has offered a new approach to how conventional tasks are performed in the heavy lifting industry. Permanent magnets have been in use for tasks such as welding and fabrication for a really long time, however they’ve been dismissed for heavy lifting due to the complexity involved. Magswitch challenges the traditional clamping methodologies in use and allows metalworks operations to be carried out on the core strength of permanent magnets.

Benefits of Bearing-free Magnetic Encoder Systems

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Oct 5, 2017 1:56:55 PM

Magnetic encoder technology is vastly used in heavy industries such as steel mills, ship drives, gas turbines, power stations, drilling rigs, and so on. The rugged landscape and threat of harsh elements require delivery of control signals over a long period of time in a reliable and efficient manner. While optical scanning encoder systems are always an option, the extreme conditions make it unsuitable for installation. Extremely confined spaces, large shaft diameters and no free shafts are just some of the reasons as to why Magnetic Encoder technology needs to be adopted.
