EGE-Elektronik launches MGK magnetic sensors for use in cryogenic processes in medical technology and beyond. Based on the MGK series, the sensors were specifically designed for continuous operation at low temperatures down to -80 °C. The manufacturer specialized in robust sensor technology for demanding applications offers very short response times for the application-specific adaptation of sensors featuring, for example, increased protection classes, interfaces according to customer requirements or, as here, special materials that can withstand dry cryogenic atmospheres over the long term. The MGK magnetic sensors are tripped when a magnetic contact comes near them. They are suitable, for example, for detecting, counting or positioning transport containers, flaps, doors or valve positions. The sensing distance is 5…20 mm, depending on the flux density of the magnet. The use of magnetic sensors enables increased sensing distances even at extreme temperatures and temperature profiles that challenge inductive sensors. They also detect objects through non-magnetic materials such as plastic walls.

The ST 55 S sensor detects flow velocities from 0.05 m/s to 3 m/s and temperatures from 0 °C to 80 °C in liquid media. The 47 mm, 80 mm or 120 mm long probe is installed in pipelines with internal diameters from 15 mm to 250 mm. Optimally matched to the probe, the SNA 552 GAPL evaluation electronics calculates the flow rate, displays it in l/min or mł/h and can transmit it to a PLC via IO-Link. The easy-to-read display can be tilted and turned upside down. Users can conveniently parameterize the measuring points via buttons on the housing or via IO-Link. The stainless-steel electronics unit features IP65 protection and is suitable for ambient temperatures from -10°C to 60°C. It is connected to the sensor via an up to 5 m long cable with an M12 plug. In addition to IO-Link, the evaluation electronics unit features independently configurable switching outputs or a current output. Functions such as min/max/average memory as well as fault monitoring and access level management are integrated directly into the device. Special operating modes such as hysteresis or dosing ensure optimal function in various applications. The manufacturer also offers the right accessories for mounting and integration into IO-Link networks.

LOSYCO has implemented new assembly lines for excavator and wheel loaders in the German plant of YANMAR CE, one of the world’s leading construction machinery manufacturers. The LOXrail transport system features floor-level rails with a 25-mm shaft diameter for payloads up to 20 tons. The plant layout with three corners posed a particular challenge. Previously installed rails required extra effort, in that the loaded trolleys had to be coupled to a special towing device in order to navigate any of the curves. To improve upon this, LOSYCO installed three motorized, sensor-controlled turntables, which interface directly with the rails and allow smooth maneuvering around corners. As another innovation, LOSYCO introduced separate lines for the excavator undercarriages and superstructures, which significantly facilitates handling. A newly installed rail-guided transverse shuttle allows staff to manually unite both modules for final assembly. Lifting platforms integrated into the route with sensor-controlled end position detection ensure safe and precise transition when the construction machines are lifted from the rails at the end of the assembly line in order to mount the wheels. “A major advantage of the new rail system is its low friction. Therefore, the machines can be easily pushed from one station to the next by hand. Built-in maneuvering elements such as turntables and the shuttle ensure efficient, safe work processes and reduce the physical strain on our employees,” says YANMAR plant manager Stefan Rückartt.
