Diamond blades

47 Bladeb 150The 14-in. STS-6 Multi-Application Diamond Blade features manufacturer’s third generation patterned diamond technology, which evenly aligns diamonds into rows within the blade’s segment. Precise alignment ensures the maximum amount of diamonds contacting the cutting surface at any given moment, product engineers note, netting a blade with consistent segment wear rate and approximately 30 percent more footage versus comparable blades.

Crane brakes

46 Magna 150MagnaShear motor brake employs oil shear technology to extend service life in demanding crane applications, especially those with frequent start/stop cycles. Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating a build-up condition identified as the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear significantly increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment while elongating maintenance intervals.

Screw conveyor drive

46 Nordi 150Product engineers cite a compact, economical alternative to traditional screw conveyor drives: Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems ease maintenance, while drive performance. Screw conveyor drive options feature a Unicase reducer housing, Quadrilip reducer shaft sealing and high capacity output bearings with CEMA standard flange mounting and CEMA drive shafts ranging from 1.5 in. to 3-7/16 in.
