Siemens has completed its portfolio of couplings with the addition of the new backlash-free Flender Bipex-S and Flender Sipex couplings. Both coupling versions can be used in production machines and machine tools, as well as in automation engineering.
They are available in various sizes and can be installed in integrated drive systems, frequently in combination with servo motors. Bipex-S torsionally flexible elastomer couplings are used in applications subject to vibration and shocks; Sipex metal bellows couplings are used in drives that require an absolutely angle-preserving torque transmission.
High-precision applications in machine tool manufacturing, control engineering and processing industries demand a great deal from the performance, quality and precision of couplings and their process reliability. Backlash-free couplings with reliable power transmission form the modular interface between motor and drive machine. They also compensate for offsets between the coupled units.
The backlash-free, breakdown-resistant and vibration-damping Bipex-S couplings are characterized by high power density and electrically isolating properties that protect against leakage currents. They enable a high degree of positional accuracy and reduce the wear on the system through lower peak loads and vibrations. The axial plug-in enables blind assembly. If the elastomer wears away completely, the jaws of the coupling hubs provide emergency running properties.
The extremely torsionally rigid Sipex couplings facilitate angle-preserving torque transmission, which consequently provides the highest positional accuracy. They are non-wearing and maintenance-free, reduce unplanned system and machine downtimes which, in turn, increases system availability. The excellent, true-running properties of the couplings make them particularly suitable for high speeds. Low restoring forces, almost no bearing load in the coupled machines and a good power density round off their positive properties.
The new, backlash-free Bipex-S and Sipex Flender couplings are each available in six hub versions, which enable optimal connection to the shaft ends of the coupled units. They have a low moment of inertia, require little installation space, are easy to mount and are very suitable for use in integrated drive systems. Both series of couplings are used in control, automation and medical engineering, as well as in production machine and machine tool manufacturing. They are installed, for example, in positioning drives, stepper motors, linear units and handling robots.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
