Doubled safety using redundancy also means double the braking torque on systems with two brake circuits – an enormous strain for all components. The brakes manufacturer from Mauerstetten in Germany, mayr® power transmission, has solved this problem by developing a new, multiple circuit stage brake, the ROBA®-quatrostop.
The new, redundant ROBA®-quatrostop with its four individual brake circuits brakes gently and exceptionally quietly.
The new safety brake for film, theatre and stage facilities is redundant without doubling the braking torque. This brakes system brakes gently, is gentle on attachment parts and saves costs through easier connection constructions. The ROBA®-quatrostop stage brake runs extremely quietly. It has four individual brake circuits, which are integrated into a compact, extremely short brake block. Three brake circuits together produce the required braking torque. The fourth, redundant circuit ensures the necessary safety. The braking torque is therefore only increased by 33 percent. All braking circuits can be switched and tested individually.
The ROBA®-quatrostop is an electromagnetic, spring applied safety brake. After switching off the power, on power failure or on EMERGENCY OFF, it allows reliable and safe stops in any position. The compact design ensures simple handling and installation. The working air gap is set at the manufacturing plant and need not be re-adjusted during operation. This means that functional errors due to operating and adjustment errors are prevented in advance by the design.
For maximum system and personal safety, each brake circuit is equipped with a release monitoring system for functional control. Stage brakes from the construction series ROBA®-quatrostop are mainly maintenance-free. The maintenance work is limited to the inspection of friction linings, which are extremely wear-resistant and achieve an extremely high lifetime.
Safety does not permit compromises. mayr® power transmission are international leaders in the development, production and implementation of safety brakes for theatre, film and stage facilities. Extremely quiet-running stage brakes by mayr® power transmission make a daily appearance at numerous events in very different locations all around the world. Based on 40 years of expertise in safety brakes, wide field experience in many thousands of applications and a very wide product range, the company provides technically perfect, economical and extremely low-noise solutions.Chr.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
