Don’t touch, the shaft is turning

Total solutions for non-contact torque measurement can be seen on Sensor Technology’s stand at the 2007 M-Tec exhibition. The RWT310/320 series of TorqSense Rotary Torque Sensors is now available in a full range of sizes from 1Nm to 10,000Nm, so can be applied to virtually any size of system where... Read More

Texans Go To Bed To Test Robots

The University of Texas is working on a new test bed that will radically improve evaluation of motors for demanding applications. Key to the researchers’ experiments, and at the heart of the test bed is the TorqSense transducer developed by Sensor Technology. Getting the right motor for a demanding application... Read More

Gongs Galore

Sensor Technology picked up its second prestigious overseas award of the year at Asia’s premier industrial exhibition in July, following on from a similar success at Sensors 2006 in Chicago in May. Both awards were for the new digital TorqSense RWT310/320 series non-contact torque monitoring transducer, which has been receiving... Read More

Industrial sensor helps knee sufferers

A medical researcher is using an industrial torque sensor to analyse the performance of implanted replacement knee joints, hoping to increase the understanding of their long term post-surgery performance. Judith Lane is running the programme between now and the end of 2007 at Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh. As well... Read More

Nuclear engineers avoid contact

A test rig built at Centa Transmissions in Shipley is allowing the company to guarantee that the precision gearboxes it supplies to nuclear industry will never fail prematurely. Despite its critical role, the rig is essentially quite simple, in that a motor drives the test unit against a load created by one... Read More

Long Service Motors Tested After Re-Engineering

Specialist industrial motor manufacturer Solutions Engineering in Stoke on Trent is able to test the performance of its motors, having built a test station to its own specification based around a piezo electric torque transducer. It manufactures a range of bespoke slip ring motors for driving equipment such as vibrators... Read More

Sensing for Servo Repairs

Reliability and robustness were the key requirements when Wyko Industrial Services set about building a test and calibration rig for its servomotor repair business in Aintree near Liverpool. They based their design on a non-contact torque sensor that could effectively be isolated from damaging shock loads. “We knew the rig... Read More

New Premises enable global expansion

Expansion plans have been put in train at high technology torque measuring company Sensor Technology, with a move to additional premises for the operational staff and several other initiatives to prepare the company for a period of sustained growth. The new building is at Heyford Park near Oxford and houses... Read More
