A Smarter Approach to Identifying Sprocket Wear

Failure to detect sprocket tooth wear can be costly and ultimately result in failure of your entire chain roller system. The Tsubaki Smart Tooth® Sprocket can eliminate the guesswork by helping you easily identify the need for drive system maintenance before failure occurs. Smart Tooth® sprockets have patented Wear Indicator Pins that provide visual indication if your sprocket is within allowable wear tolerance or needs to be replaced. Now, you can eliminate the guesswork associated with worn sprockets and schedule maintenance before critical component failure occurs to reduce down time and save money.

1 Heavy Industry and Smart Technology (February 2019)

Heavy industry. The phrase conjures images of mines and steel mills, of huge caverns underground, of cavern-like factories, of oldline companies operating heavy-duty machines for hightorque work. That's the image of heavy industry. Today, though, there's also another image. It's of an operator walking a steel mill's floor, looking at his smartphone or his tablet.

10 Smart Couplings Remove Guesswork from Measurements in Machinery Applications (March 2020)

Quite often, the collection of precise data in drive technology applications can be problematic. Data monitoring in a rotating drivetrain is difficult because a direct networking cable connection is often not an available option. Nothing sends shivers down the spine of for example, a production line manager or a system integrator like uncertainty. That's why achieving precise measurement of things like torque and other parameters in machinery applications is, while daunting, a dearly desired goal, especially if those measurements are only available at the drive and motor.

11 Hannover Messe USA Goes Digital (August 2020)

There would have been an incredible lineup of products and technologies in Chicago in the Hannover Messe USA pavilion at IMTS 2020 -- everything from cobots and smart factory automation solutions to digital twins and mechanical power transmission components.

19 Steps Towards Revolution (December 2015)

The revolution goes by many names: machine-to-machine communication, smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet, to name a few. In Europe, the prevailing term is Industry 4.0. In Germany, where that phrase was coined, the government is putting down €200 million to cultivate a lead in the industry. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that its potential economic impact will be almost $4 trillion (or more) by 2025. Enthusiastic evangelists will tell you that the Industrial Internet is the most important advance in their industries that they’ve seen in their decades-long careers.

24 Graco Pump Technology Solves Long-Term Pump Leaking, Dosing Issues (September 2016)

When trying to find a new bonding material dispense system, one manufacturer tested a series of pumps — all of which leaked due to the abrasiveness of the bonding material. The manufacturer also had been attempting to manage shot size manually with their previous system, and was not able to keep dispense consistent. The company searched for a system that could accurately dispense programmed shot sizes while also eliminating the leaking issues they had experienced with previous pumps. Graco provided a Check-Mate pump with SmartWare software, and the manufacturer is now able to automatically dispense shots of bonding material as small as one ounce without leaks.
