    New generation offers innovative energy-saving features for the production process

    Rittal is expanding its smart cooling unit solutions by adding the new Blue e+ S range. Their latest generation of cooling units with lower output categories of 300, 500, and 1,000 W have been designed for efficiency, ensuring a smaller footprint and lower costs – just like their “bigger brothers.” So, it’s a win-win both for users and for our future.

    Solutions that reduce our carbon footprint during production are in high demand. But at the same time, these solutions need to be intelligent and communication-enabled so that they can be easily integrated into digitalized manufacturing environments. Seven years ago, Rittal responded to this demand with its Blue e+ range of cooling solutions and launched extremely efficient enclosure cooling units, which provided on average energy savings of 75 percent.


  • Lafert North America: The Ultra Compact Range For the Most Advanced Robots

    January 23, 2023

    The Lafert Group have developed the most ultra compact suitable motors for anthropomorphic robots installed all over the world. They have developed a range of ultra compact servo motors fully UL certified for export to North America and with mechanics designed to ensure the efficiency and durability of the product connected to any electrical voltage in the world.

    They are servomotors with high torque density, super performing and dynamic. Combined with a specially designed encoder, they allow maximum control of movement and speed. They have optimized the components to obtain maximum performance stability and identified the flange that allows the motor to be fixed to the robot and to guarantee the effectiveness of the movement.
