Industrial Ethernet is now bigger than fieldbuses Industrial network market shares 2018 according to HMS

Industrial Ethernet has overtaken traditional fieldbuses in terms of new installed nodes in factory automation. This is the main finding in HMS Industrial Networks’ annual study of the industrial network market. Industrial Ethernet now accounts for 52% of new installed nodes (46% last year), while fieldbuses are on 42% (48). EtherNet/IP is now the most widely installed network at 15%, followed by PROFINET and PROFIBUS, both at 12%. Wireless technologies are also coming on strong with 6% market share.


MAXXMILL 750: New Compact Vertical Milling Centre for 5-Sided Machining

Based on its long-standing experience and customer-oriented philosophy, EMCO – in cooperation with the Italian subsidiary EMCO Famup – has expanded its MAXXMILL series and developed a high-performance vertical CNC milling centre for 5-sided machining: the new MAXXMILL 750. The compact and optimised machine structures as well as the technical adaptations enable users to machine complex and heavy workpieces with an edge length of 530 x 530 x 417 mm in just one setting - with efficient results in terms of surface quality and precision.

Eichenberger Gewinde : Safety in the area of high voltage with cold-rolled ball screws. When the ball screw is in control of the electric arc

Electricity is, figuratively speaking, the lifeblood of our modern society and economy. Without it, nothing is possible. Circuit breakers are essential for the safe operation of our power supply. Among others, their task is to turn the entire output of a power plant on and off (in the gigawatt range) and to direct voltages up to 1,500 kV. The cold-rolled Carry ball screw from Burg (CH) plays an extremely important and responsible key part in this.


New Vertical Milling Machine for 5-Sided Machining

With the new MAXXMILL 630, EMCO customers can enjoy a flexible vertical CNC milling machine for 5-sided machining. Complex workpieces with an edge length of 445 x 445 x 290 mm can be efficiently and precisely machined in one setting. The compact machine structure and excellent value for money also support customers in making further advantageous savings.
