Dual Mass Balancing of a Jaw Crusher
The inertia forces and vibration amplitudes of a jaw crusher have been balanced approximately by 90 % by using two balancing masses rotating in opposite directions. Dual mass balancing serves several benefits such as lower stress, vibration and noise levels of the machine, and an increased fatigue life.
Science Recovers the Lost Sensory Feedbacks
Remote operation of unmanned machines lack of sensory information which is essential in carrying out various tasks in traditional manual control. This results in low production capacity and overloading of machines. Haptic control recovers the lost sensory feedback in remote operation and enables operation from cabin with high productivity, better damage avoidance and good...
Energy Autonomous Sensors For Condition Monitoring
New wireless energy autonomous sensor technology takes on-line condition monitoring to the next level by enabling reliable and cost efficient condition monitoring of thousands of machines across the world resulting in better forecasting and improved process optimization. The new sensor technology creates competitive advantage to Finnish mechanical engineering companies and...
Excellent Thermal Conductivity Of Aluminium Castings
A FIMECC research project by Aalto University and Alteams Oy has achieved a more than 50 percent improvement in the thermal conductivity of aluminium casting alloy. The result is significant as electronic components are becoming more powerful and produce excess heat which has to be removed from the apparatus. Improvement in heat transfer guarantees also longer life time and...
Raex wear-resistant and ultra-high-strength steels
Key enablers for a complete family of new wear-resistant and ultra-high-strength steels were developed. Utilizing Ruukki’s own direct quenching technology the new steels bring energy efficient, light solutions for transportation as well as safety and new performance for harsh crushing and mining applications.
Digital microhydraulics can save double the amount of oil used in Finland each year
In solenoid-actuated micro valve concept plurality of mass-produced digital on/off valves are used instead of one traditional valve. This increases industry competitiveness and smaller ecological footprint by cutting fuel use up to 50 % and enabling higher performance and reliability of machines and processes.
