TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION ADVERTORIAL Downdraught bench solves dust issue

When Lyndon Design needed help with a dust issue, AirBench provided a solution.

hardwoods and an existing sanding booth was proving insufficient to cope with the dust generated during manual sanding processes. Following a full site survey and demonstration, AirBench recommended a

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduced the new ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) system at EuroBLECH 2018. The ESAB PAPR features a P3 filter and pre-filter to

remove particulates and the latest control technology, allowing the operator to adjust air flow between 170 and 220 L/min to suit the environment and application. As an extra measure of safety, it incorporates both visual and audible alarms to the alert the operator in the event of a blocked filter or low battery. Compatible helmets include the SENTINEL™ A50 for Air, G30 Air, G40 Air and G50 Air and Warrior™ Tech. ESAB Welding & Cutting is a recognised leader in the

welding and cutting industry. From time-honoured processes in welding and cutting to revolutionary technologies in mechanised cutting and automation.

large, HEPA filtered downdraught bench from its FN range, configured to discharge via ducting outside the booth. Lyndon installed the unit using its own team. The workspace is now a

cleaner, more effective space; the Lyndon team are now happy to work within the booth. Operators have been able to move from Canister masks to paper-type P3 masks, meaning comfort (and productivity) have been greatly improved.

Dawson Shanahan celebrates 10th anniversary of FloForm acquisition and manufacturing in Wales


awson Shanahan, a specialist in precision engineering since 1943, celebrates 10 years since the buy-out of FloForm and manufacturing at

its plant in Welshpool, Wales. It’s been a decade since Dawson Shanahan came to the rescue of

FloForm, a manufacturer of automotive parts based in Welshpool, Wales. As a business that had been in decline over a two-year period, the company finally went into administration in 2009 and 80 jobs were sadly lost. Hertfordshire based Dawson Shanahan, took the decision to purchase the

business and all its assets. They made the strategic decision to retain the Welshpool site re-instating 12 employees. Dawson Shanahan had been in business with FloForm for 30 years, they

knew the staff with their skills and expertise, had to be harnessed. They moved all operations from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire to Welshpool, an important strategic decision and part of its ongoing success today.

 01938 551700 ABB launches UK-wide variable speed drives hire fleet Sensata Technologies

Introduces Well-Sealed, Easy to Install Modular Hall Effect Sensors

Kingdom and Ireland, with units extending from 3 kW up to several megawatts. Hire drives can be delivered the same day, and installed and commissioned within a matter of hours by engineers from one of twelve ABB authorised value providers. There are four scenarios where hiring a drive can


deliver customer benefits: Emergency or unexpected failure: Hiring a drive can

be a quick, low cost way of keeping critical processes running in the event of a breakdown. It reduces the cost of downtime whilst providing time to repair the failed equipment or to source and allocate capital for a permanent replacement. Temporary capacity: Hire drives can be used for

short-term, semi-permanent or seasonal applications, allowing companies to ramp process capacity up or down with ease, while eliminating storage and maintenance costs.

BB has invested significantly in the rollout of a variable speed drive hire fleet across the United

Prove predicted energy savings: If a variable speed

application has not previously used a drive, or if an existing drive is due for upgrade, hiring can be a low cost way to prove predicted energy savings before purchase and in a real environment. Equipment testing: Testing houses may be called

upon to test variable speed applications, but may not have a suitable drive with which to pair it in-house. Hiring a drive can allow testing to get underway at short notice and low cost. Drives are hired at a fixed daily rate, which includes

all installation and maintenance. The ABB authorised value provider network can be contacted by telephone on 0333 005 7001, or via

launched the new ACW4 Single Turn and TCW4 Multi Turn Absolute Hall Effect Sensors, which feature an over- molded, two-part modular construction that provides engineers with exceptional design flexibility. The sensing electronics are encased in a thermoplastic


polyamide shell while the separate activating magnet is external to the sensor assembly. This modular architecture results in a compact package of only 50mm in diameter by a maximum 24mm thick that allows designers to easily incorporate the ACW4 and TCW4 sensors into both new and existing systems.
