here are many reasons to visit the exhibition when it returns to the NEC, Birmingham on 25 and 26 September 2019, with new feature areas added to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show. The latest feature area to be announced is Innovation in Action, sponsored by PCB Piezotronics. There is a lot to see at the event with

organisations will give a series of

invaluable presentations, giving visitors an insight into topics including funding, training, apprenticeships and

market leading companies from across the test, measurement and control sector coming together under one roof. This feature area allows exhibitors to give demonstrations of some of the top technology they have on display. Free-to-attend, Innovation in Action will give you a better insight into the products that are on show and how these products can benefit your own operations. Unlike Google and any other online way of sourcing new products and solutions, this gives you a chance to see how these products work in real life and to have your questions answered by the experts.

Companies already confirmed to speak in Innovation in Action include PCB Piezotronics and Bronkhorst. PCB Piezotronics is a designer, manufacturer, and global supplier of accelerometers, microphones, force, torque, load, strain, and pressure sensors, as well as the pioneer of ICP technology. This instrumentation is used by design

educational, commercial, OEM applications, and more. You can see a live d monitoring, and control requirements in automotive, aerospace, industrial engineers and predictive maintenance professionals worldwide for test, m

Te Engineering Symposium - Sensing Innovation

The Engineering Symposium is an exciting partnership between DJB Instruments and Sensors & Instrumentation Live that will present CPD-accredited training that is driven by sensor innovation and the very latest in engineering. DJB will bring together a team of speakers from some of the UK’s leading technology and engineering companies to present a two day programme of technical training sessions. Subjects covered in the Engineering Symposium will include: basics of signal processing; analysis and control of

new range of right-angled planetary gearboxes is now available from Motor Technology for a wide range of industrial applications. Manufactured by Italian firm, Tramec, the TEP range is based on the company’s long established EP range of general purpose planetary gearboxes.


Right-angled gearboxes are frequently used where there are space constraints on a machine, often machines with high axis counts, such as slitters and winders, printing and packaging machines, handling and robotics etc. Currently available in four frame sizes, 55, 75, 90, and 120, in one and two stage configurations. Single stage versions offer ratios from 3:1 to 10:1, and two stage versions offer ratios from 12:1 to 100:1.

Backlash ranges from 12-17 arc-minutes for the single stage and 15-20 arc-minutes for the two stage versions. Gearbox efficiency is 94% for the single stage type and 91% for the two stage.

The gearboxes also perform well in terms of noise generated during operation with levels between 65 to 70dB at 3000rpm input speed. Gearbox output torque is up to 180Nm nominal, 290Nm peak, and with an E-Stop torque of

The gearboxes are flange compatible with Tramec’s EP series and also offer alternative shaft and output flange 600Nm.
