WDS is expanding its conveyor components range

Published

on

The UK’s leading supplier of engineering components, WDS Components Parts Ltd. is expanding its range of conveyor parts, with new guide rails, bracketry, bearing mountings and guides. These will complement the existing skate wheels, omni-wheels, support bases, connecting joints, mounting brackets, head mounts and clamps.

“With the newest additions, WDS now offers a complete set of elements for the building, extension, maintenance and repair of materials handling systems,” Adrian Wells, Product Manager at WDS explains.

“Typically, we supply conveyor parts to two types of customer: end users and specialist conveyor design and build firms. The latter make the main conveyor beds complete with powered rollers and/or drives. Of course, many sectors use conveyors, so we have built a portfolio of products that can serve a wide range of users, including manufacturing companies, food processors, pharmaceuticals producers, electronics specialists, parcel and package distributors. The conveyors are also suitable for end-of-line operations, such as packing, stacking, palletising and transfer in any industry.

In addition to supplying a full suite of components parts, WDS simplifies the procurement process by offering a comprehensive online catalogue that features technical data, 3D CAD models and one-click ordering for all of its standard parts. Each component is available in a range of sizes, with options for variations such as shaft lengths, choice of handle type and metric or Imperial screw thread options. It also offers products in a range of materials, such as stainless steel for clean and hygienic environments, aluminium for weight sensitive applications, or plastics and ceramics as an alternative to steel, etc.

Its conveyor products are further supported by the full range of standard engineering parts such as fastenings, hinges, clamps; footings, mounts, casters and wheels; shafts and joints; levers, knobs, handles and hand wheels; locating pins, locks and latches. All of these are supported by the layers of technical help WDS makes freely available via its website (www.wdsltd.co.uk), telephone help line (08456 066677), email communications and on-line videos.

WDS’ headquarters combines a stock holding and dispatch centre with on-site manufacturing so that it can offer a bespoke service to customers that require special products rather than standard components. Thanks to this set up it is able to offer next day delivery on 98% of standard orders and extremely fast turnaround of bespoke orders.

Adrian explains the advantage of this: “Typically a conveyor system will be made up almost completely of standard components, but there may be a need for a customised bracket, special mounting or similar. At WDS we are able to produce these little extras and save our client all the effort of finding and dealing with a third party for just one or two parts.”

IKO MX Series Shall Involve Dust-Protection in Specific Conditions

Published

on

IKO International is building on its standard MX series of linear roller bearings to include special features for environments that are sensitive to metal chips, dust, and other contaminants.

Dust protection

A dust protective C-Wiper can be mounted to the outside of the end seal, ensuring operation in environments where metal chips are spattering. After 1,000 km of operation, the C-Wiper prevented foreign substances from entering the slide unit with no damage to the end seal.

Maintenance-free

The MX specification integrates IKO’s proprietary C-Lube lubrication system. As the cylindrical rollers circulate, lubricant is distributed to the loading area through the rollers along the track rail. Lubrication is properly maintained in the loading area for over 12,500 miles, reducing valuable time spent lubricating hard to reach parts.

High load capacity

The MX models utilize rows of cylindrical rollers to provide a greater contact area than slides that use steel balls. They also maintain high rigidity in every direction. As a result, bearings deliver high load capacities––up to 674 kN for dynamic loads and 1,300 kN for static loads.
Mounting dimensions are compatible with MH and LWH ball type series. If you want to transition from a ball type to a roller type, your mounting dimensions do not need to change.

A new lease of life for your STUDER machine with a machine overhaul

Published

on

FRITZ STUDER AG, Motion Meeting Press Event

Anything that works as hard as a cylindrical grinding machine will wear out. This is particularly obvious in the geometry and precision. STUDER doesn’t just support the customer in the purchase of new machines, but can also offer a complete machine overhaul A machine overhaul at STUDER makes an old machine into one that is as good as new; in other words, a machine that has the same tolerances as when it was first delivered.

STUDER has been carrying out machine overhauls for 20 years. Every day, more than 25 employees are involved in giving machines and assemblies a new lease of life. In the supreme discipline of machine overhauls, over 400 machines have been completely overhauled to date. Countless assemblies have also been overhauled. Irrespective of whether machine or assembly, they all have one thing in common: An overhaul at STUDER is carried out by the original manufacturer with its unique knowledge and expertise, and according to the same quality standards as for new machines. At the end the customer gets a product whose quality and precision are comparable to that of a new machine.

Trusted precision and quality

A machine overhaul fully restores the original precision and quality and verifies this by means of a certificate. Changing requirements such as reconfigurations, automation or even digitalization can also be implemented in conjunction with the overhaul.

Thanks to the STUDER quality, the customer receives a new one-year warranty on the overhaul. This also includes ensuring parts availability again. As the machine is ultimately restored to the original condition, an overhaul provides the customer with an outstanding price/performance ratio compared to the former purchase price. STUDER can provide the customer with a specific loan machine for the duration of the machine overhaul if required.

Machine overhaul at a glance

  • Machine base: Completely overhauled, ribbed guideways milled, recast and repainted.
  • Control cabinet: Replacement of wear parts in the electric cabinet.
  • Pneumatics: New valves, hoses and filters.
  • Hydraulics: New hydraulic and lubricating system, all new valves and hoses.
  • Workhead: Completely overhauled.
