China’s famous shoe producer, Aokang, has put into operation its new distribution center in Shanghai. The move strengthens the company’s distribution services for its retail and online business in eastern China. Aokang opted for an automated logistics solution at the center. The Interroll vertical crossbelt sorter plays a vital role in it.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has developed the nsd tupH anti-corrosion treatment for use in demanding environments with stringent hygiene requirements. The innovative surface treatment, which makes aluminium drives extremely robust and durable, also impressed the Australian company Smalte Conveying Solutions.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers a wide range of smooth surface motors for industries and applications with high hygiene standards. In order to fully support the requirements of lower power motors, the drive specialist has now developed an additional motor size.
With the two-stage NORDBLOC.1 bevel gear unit, NORD launched high performance, washdown-optimised aluminium drives for hygienic applications. Now, the drive specialist expands its successful series with smaller gear units for torques up to 50 Nm and thereby offers an efficient alternative to worm gear units – for example for smaller conveyor belts.
The rise of digitization also means that known processes and procedures are subject to change. Standards that have been valid and established thus far are now under examination, done away with entirely, or may need to be adapted. In many regards, there is a sense that the world is becoming increasingly complex, thus requiring a new level of expertise and strategies to successfully master the challenges of the future. For this reason, Leuze electronic is developing smart sensors to optimize the production processes of its customers and increase the productivity of their systems and machines.
