Gast Claw pumps contain contactless rotors that are synchronized by gears without any lubricant present. This provides them the benefit of avoiding any residue generated by friction or rubbing during rotation. The lack of friction between the rotors also leads to lower maintenance and long lasting performance.
With only moderate energy consumption and very high efficiency, Gast’s claw pumps are a green technology which guarantee low operating costs. Designed with the end-user in mind, these pumps also feature continuous duty and simplified maintenance, truly taking efficiency to the next level. READ MORE

Baumer AlphaProx family are the perfect solution for reliable non-contact measurement of changes in the position of metal objects. Thanks to their high temperature stability in connection with large measuring distances, the high degree of consistency and their robustness, the sensors are ideally suited for measuring positions and angles, controlling and monitoring belt tension, controlling sag and measuring low-frequency vibrations.

Electric actuators offer a significantly increased amount of control over the motion profile, in a non-pneumatic environment. The LER rotary series is SMC’s newest member of the LE electric actuator family.
The LER uses a 24VDC step motor within a compact body to transmit torque through a rotating table. Radial and moment loads are supported by a deep groove ball bearing or a special high-precision ball bearing (option). Step data can be written to the controller using PC software or a portable teaching pendant. Absolute and relative angular positions can be set, along with full definition of speed, acceleration and deceleration. A complete package including actuator, controller, robot cable, and I/O cable can be specified using one simple part number.
