Vertical axis brakes from the ROBA®-topstop® construction series are used worldwide in machines and systems in order to increase safety, in particular in applications with gravity loaded axes. The innovations introduced at the 2011 Hannover Trade Fair now make this brake system even more versatile.
Exploded drawing of the ROBA®-topstop® with the IP 65 design sealing elements
Experience has shown that ROBA®-topstop® safety brakes are not only activated on emergency switch-offs and when the machine is completely switched off, but also on every cyclic stop. This results in a high quantity of switchings within a short time.
This system is impact-resistant, shock-resistant, magnetic field-resistant and completely wear-free. In addition, it is extremely reliable (Reliability characteristic: MTBF value > 5000 years). This means that the inductive release monitoring system is far superior to the mechanical release monitoring system with microswitch previously used, which worked based on contact, in all ambient conditions.Chr.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
