Reducing Engine Friction

An innovative torque sensor is helping to reduce engine emissions and improve economy as part of a project to develop an intelligent lubrication system. With engine efficiency under the spotlight like never before, automotive companies are exploring all avenues for improving performance. And because engines have a rotating power output... Read More

Torquing Sense for Process Plant Control

Available in other languages: Plant monitoring and control is particularly vital in the continuous process industries, where multiple machines must act in harmony day after day and failure of a single machine can lead to massive consequential losses of production. With most machines driven through a rotating shaft, torque monitoring... Read More

Sinnvolles Drehmoment Zur Steuerung Von Prozessanlagen

Available in other languages: Die Überwachung und Steuerung von Anlagen ist insbesondere in den Industrien mit fortwährenden Prozessen entscheidend, wo vieleMaschinen tagein, tagaus inHarmonie arbeiten müssen und dasVersagen einer einzelnenMaschine zu erheblichen Folgeverlusten der Produktion führen kann. Da die meistenMaschinen durch eine rotierendeWelle angetrieben werden, kann die Drehmomentüberwachung Probleme erkennen... Read More

Torque about improving handling accuracy

Dry bulk handling is en route to becoming a precision science with a level of control previously undreamt of, thanks to 20 years of research and development into digital non-contact torque monitoring. Dry bulk handling is following many other industrial processes that have been redeveloped from a ‘black art’ to... Read More

E300 series torque transducer

Servo research points the way to improved dynamics

Research at the University of Manchester has demonstrated servo systems with vastly improved dynamics with the most challenging of loads. The key to the increased performance is a torque transducer from Sensor Technology employing Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) techniques to deliver high-bandwidth, non-contact solution. The ease of set-up of modern... Read More

University of Bradford: Big push to recycle plastic

Testing time for vacuum cleaner maker

A company that designs and build custom test equipment for the manufacturing and research industries has developed a cost saving sub-system that allows eight dynamometer test rigs to share a single calibration unit based on a Digital TorqSense transducer from Sensor Technology Ltd. The company, 1st Pass of Westbury in Wiltshire, started out... Read More

Lotus Hybrid Blooms

Specialist electromagnetic design company Elektro Magnetix (EMX) of Brighton developed and tested the motor-generator for Lotus Engineering’s EVE (Efficient, Viable, Environmental) Hybrid. This is a technology demonstrator that is showcasing many of the medium term solutions that will be used to reduce vehicle emissions. Jonathan Bremner of EMX explains that... Read More

Designing greener cars requires sophisticated testing

The automotive industry’s race to develop a new generation of high performance, low emissions power plants has lead to the emergence of high capability test beds that simultaneously monitor multiple parameters. The sector is pinning many of its hopes for the future on the development of electric/petrol and electric/diesel hybrid... Read More
