Has anyone else noticed that 2008 is already shaping up to be a bad year for logistics in Australia?
The SWS310 tension weigh modules with the SLS410 load cell enable users to convert a suspended hopper or vessel into a scale. The mounting hardware is durable enough to withstand harsh industrial environments and support the vessel safely. The clevis and rod assemblies are able to compensate for slight misalignment which help provide accurate and repeatable weighing.
Brickwood Holdings' Australian dimension (1165 x 1165 mm) plastic pallet contains steel reinforcing that makes it capable of being edge racked with loads up to 1500 kg. It is capable of being used in automatic storage and retrieval systems in major beverage manufacturers and supermarket distribution centres.
Ceva Logistics has won the Information Management Award at the UK Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) annual award ceremony in London, for its solution to capture and automatically analyse tachograph data.
Australian companies with the expertise and resources needed to fill the gaps in China's inadequate cold chain logistics stand to benefit from a projected USD$160 billion in annual cost savings that a modernised system could deliver
Mettler Toledo has added the IND221 and IND226 large-display terminals to its existing line of products. These terminals feature a large LED display and easy-to-use keypads and are suitable for checkweighing, counting and classifying.
The Systec range of weighing terminals is designed for an extensive range of industrial applications. Selected models can be programmed to meet specific applications and customer requirements. The terminals are housed in compact stainless steel enclosures protected to IP65. The IT1000, IT3000 and IT8000 terminals are pattern approved for legal trade measurement in Australia by the National Measurement Institute (NMI).
Vuototecnica includes the Octopus system in its range, the answer to the need for operational flexibility for palletising robots and vacuum-operated handling systems. This system allows any object of any shape and kind, except those with excessive transpiration, to be supported without having to change or position suction pads, even when their surface covers only 5% of the entire suction surface; the maximum weight of the load to be lifted will naturally be in proportion to the lifting surface.
Using two electric vibrating motors has long been the usual method of getting a true vertical action in a vibrating table. This is a good system when the application doesn't change, but often the table may be used for many purposes. This then means that either a compromise is needed between the various applications or a variable speed motor is required.
