New belt construction eliminates stretch

Gates Vextra molded notch belts have been re-engineered with special construction that increases service life by 33% and adds more than 90 part numbers to the company’s product line. The new construction eliminates the elongation problems associated with V-belts, reducing the need to retension drives frequently. The Vextra construction is available at no extra cost for Gates Super HC and Tri-Power bandless, molded notch belts. They are ideal for difficult drives where high speeds, small pulley diameters and short centre distances are needed.

Motor controller takes over tasks from PLCs

SEW’s Movidrive is a powerful, new, universal motor controller that is designed to improve the performance of many applications. The variable-frequency drive unit has built-in “intelligence” for simpler, decentralized automation, handling much of the motion control and I/O tasks that previously required PLCs or PCs to accomplish. By customizing SEW’s IPOS integrated position and logic-handling control program, the Movidrive can be adapted to any machine environment. Movitools software is included to program, diagnose and tune the drive.
