S.M.A.R.T. DIALOG and P:REACT enable permanent monitoring of Food Grade Quality on rPET, shown at the K2016


FELDKIRCHEN / DONAU (AUSTRIA): The Austrian provider of recycling-solutions, Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH, displays the PET Improvement Equipment P:REACT now with S.M.A.R.T. DIALOG to fully control, monitor and data-log the decontamination performance, especially for Food Grade applications.

PET-Improvement with P:REACT exceeds highest safety standards.

The liquid phase of the PET in P:REACT with a high surface/volume ratio of the liquid PET, together with applied vacuum, allows harmful contaminants to be easily removed. Scientific third party tests, as well as the FDA approval for 100% food contact prove, that the LSP-Process (Liquid State Polycondensation) exceeds the security-levels required in the food packaging industry. This process design already incorporates high decontamination performance and therefore opens the flexible usage of rPET for any kind of application – food or non-food.

How much will your pump really cost you?

When it comes to specifying pumping equipment, many companies, particularly those under increasing pressure to cut costs, could actually be making decisions that will cost them more in the long run.  In this article, Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the British Pump Manufacturer’s Association (BPMA), explains how lifecycle costing can help to reveal the true cost of a pump.

Han-Modular® Twin angular housing is ideal for motor connection


Han-Modular® Twin is a new connector housing that allows two modules from the HARTING Han-Modular® range to be combined in a space-saving and flexible way. The new angular housing means that the system is now easy to use as a motor connector.

In a typical configuration, the housing is fitted to the motor in place of the terminal box with the Han-Modular® Twin mounted at a 90° angle to the motor. The power connector is particularly useful for bigger motors up to 70 A.

Han-Modular® Twin can also be used as a double interface, for example combining a module for 4 × 40 A inserts and a second module for 25 signal or data contacts. This arrangement offers a new connection option for servo motors, combining one rectangular and two circular connectors.

Precision foot control for hand-held optical instrument: Herga’s USB footswitch provides fine control for epiCam retinal camera


Bury St. Edmunds – UK – September 2016: Epipole Ltd, based in Scotland, is an ethical designer and innovator of medical optical equipment that is focussed on the affordable eradication of preventable blindness. Its hand-held epiCam digital retinal fundus camera provides a low-cost solution to examine, record & store images of the internal structure of the eye – particularly for patients with diabetes where the early detection and treatment of a condition known as diabetic retinopathy can prevent the onset of blindness and other vision complications. As a low-cost instrument the epiCam is particularly attractive for countries which cannot afford the considerably more expensive desk-top systems produced by traditional manufacturers. The instrument not only facilitates high quality diabetic retinopathy screening for all budgets but its video functionality and wide dioptric range also allow examination for other ophthalmic conditions too.
