Success Story

3022 km across the Australian desert and only with the power of the sun is the challenge of the World Solar Challenge. One of their participants is the team Sonnenwagen from Aachen. The students relied on the lightweight, wear-resistant and lubricant-free "Iglidur "plain bearing technology Made of durable tribo-polymers from Igus and drove successfully in sixth over the finish line.

Since July 2018, the wastewater treatment plant ARA Chur (Switzerland) has a solar folding roof "Horizon" of DHP Technology, which allows the double use of industrial areas. For the autonomous retraction and extension of the folding roof tracks provide decentralized drive units of Nord Drive Systems with integrated PLC controlled by weather station and algorithm.

Harting0919Harting has presented new products and solutions at Husum Wind, which are leading the trend towards cost reduction in the Wind Energy Industry support, including the new ones "Han "connector B series with rear-mounted mounting, the new "Han 1A" made of high-performance plastic and a fiber optic rotary transmitter for light waves with bidirectional data transmission.

rittal0919Rittal has a new compact and Small housing series AX and KX developed. In order for plant manufacturers to be even better prepared for digitization, the housings fit very well into the digital value added chain of control and switchgear engineering. In addition to high-quality 3D data and configuration tools, for example, QR codes on all flat parts to be processed simplify their integration into the production workflow.

wuppermann0719The Kristal Solar Park is the largest photovoltaic system in the Benelux. She stands by the of Wuppermann supplied corrosion-resistant steel on a secure foundation. The Z1200-coated steel has a zinc layer of 1200 g / m and is being rolled into ram posts by Voestalpine Sadef as an integral part of its "Fastslide" solar mounting system.
