Machine tools are important types of machines, used throughout the mechanical engineering field. Most can be categorised into one or more of milling machines, drills, lathes, grinders, saws, shaping machines, and gear cutting machines. Another grouping contains erosive machine tools, such as laser, water jet, wire and sinker EDM (electronic discharge machining). New technologies, enabling [...]
10 tips for using couplings in your application Choosing the correct coupling for the task at hand is no easy task. It means asking the right questions before specifying a particular style. Choices abound, and more than one coupling type may be suitable for any given application. Here we share with you expert tips and [...]
High speed precision motion systems have to have dynamic balance, otherwise they will vibrate in use, lose precision, suffer excessive wear and fail prematurely. Ian Carr of Drive Lines Technologies in Bedford reviews procedures and techniques for balancing high speed precision couplings. Precision drive systems are generally required to have a relatively long working life, [...]
One of Germany’s leading couplings manufacturers, R+W Antriebselemente GmbH, reaches new heights in the provision of information on its R+W coupling range, blurring the lines between real & virtual worlds. Represented in the UK by Drive Lines Technologies, R+W has used Augmented Reality technology, so that engineers can experience the R+W product portfolio like never [...]
Engineered precision motion systems nearly all rely in one way or another on the accuracy of high-precision couplings. These couplings must deliver smooth, rotation, often at high speeds. R+W is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of couplings, with a dedicated ‘White’ range of precision couplings; its products are available in the UK through Drive Lines. [...]
When an internationally recognised automation company needed to develop a new product for the Aerospace industry it required a professional supply partner with quality products …so it chose Drive Lines Technologies Ltd.
Production of building cement is a complex process that puts enormous demands on the machines that manufacture it. There is demand for reliable torque limiters at many points along the process chain.
