Increased capacity and approved accuracy for belt scale system

27.03.2009
Milltronics MSI and MMI Belt scales from Siemens Industry Automation Division are now available for use on systems with flow rates of up to 12000 tons per hour, an increase of 7000 tons per hour.
The MSI and MMI, combined with a Milltronics BW500 Integrator and a speed sensor, now have OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology) and MID ((Measuring Instruments Directive). These approvals guarantee the MSI and MMI belt scales meet strict requirements for weights and measures applications in accuracy and repeatability.

The Milltronics MSI, a heavy-duty single idler belt scale, is used for rugged applications in process and load-out control. MSI provides instant response to belt loading and overload protection to 300 per cent. The MSI measures only the vertical load applied through the belt and the supporting suspended idler, and is so structurally sound that it can be applied to the most demanding applications. Drop-in installation makes alignment easy and economical.

The Milltronics MMI is a heavy-duty, high accuracy multi-idler belt scale consisting of two or more MSI scales. Used for critical process and load-out control, the two idler MMI-2 offers accuracy up to +/- 0.25 %. For even greater accuracy, the Milltronics MMI-3, a three idler belt scale, can be used on applications requiring accuracy to +/- 0.125%.

The MSI and MMI models can be installed without the use of cranes or other high cost resources.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
