    GenClean from General Cable Weathers Wash-downs

    Several years ago the food and beverage industry came to General Cable and said they were looking for a product that had all the properties of a rubber cord product, was rugged, durable and could withstand the wash-down cycles that are required in their industry. In response, General Cable developed a product that has all the chemical and abrasion properties of a typical rubber portable cord product, but also has the ability within the compound of the cable to make it through a wash-down cycle and clean off organic materials better. With typical rubber, dirt and grime adheres to the jacket and doesn’t come loose. This cord has different properties which allow dirt to get washed away.

    WHY YOU SHOULD USE A CABLE PULL SWITCH FROM ROCKWELL AUTOMATION

    For machinery such as conveyors, it is often more convenient and effective to use a cable pull device along the hazard area for your emergency stop device. These devices use a steel wire rope connected to latching pull switches so that pulling on the rope in any direction at any point along its length will trip the switch to cut off the machine power. The cable pull switches must detect both a pull on the cable as well as when the cable goes slack. Slack detection ensures that the cable is not cut and is ready for use.

    RACK-AND-PINION DRIVES OFTEN TOP OTHER DRIVES FOR DURABILITY, EFFICIENCY, AND ECONOMICS

    Linear motors, ball screws, and rack-and-pinion drives are good options when it comes to electro-mechanical linear motion systems. Ball screws are very popular, and linear motors are noted for precision and dynamic performance. Rack-and-Pinion drives are often overlooked when it comes to accuracy and performance, but they cannot only match but exceed what is offered by competing hardware. This is made possible through the advances in precision manufacturing, and the recent advent of electronic preloading. In fact, rack-and-pinion units often top the others in terms of durability, efficiency, and economics.

    THE BMP61 BRADY LABEL SYSTEM REPLACES THE TLS-2200

    The BMP61 Brady Label System replaces the TLS-2200 with several great new features. The new system is more user friendly and better quality that makes labeling jobs easier. The 2200 had a built-in battery with switch in it that wasn’t always ideal. The BMP61 has a nickel cadmium battery that slides in and out easily. It is easily replaceable and you can run this system independent of the battery by plugging it in and running off a 12-volt converter from your wall socket. Previously the keypad was not a traditional format or qwerty style keypad making it very difficult to find the letters you needed. The BMP61 has a full qwerty keyboard just like your smart phone making it faster and easier to create your labels.
