|New AM3248 stepper motor with 10,000 rpm|
The new multi-pole, two-phase FAULHABER AM3248 stepper motor performs 48 steps per revolution and offers a very high holding torque of 85 mNm at speeds of up to 10,000 rpm. The motor starts with a high speed from the very first step; thanks to its low inertia, it can be used in applications that require very fast acceleration and fast changes of direction, like aligning solar panels of satellites, for example, or wafer positioning in the semiconductor industry.
|Porsche 911 Sport Classic 2023: The ducktail is back|
Fans of iconic Porsche design have something new to celebrate: The 911 ducktail is back. This time around it takes the form of the limited-edition 911 Sport Classic, which pays tribute to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of the early 1970s. Production of this 543-hp collector's car is limited to 1,250 examples worldwide.

|Replace traditional fasteners: 50+ retaining ring applications|
The benefits of a Rotor Clip Retaining Ring are simple: The ring is made from less material than traditional fasteners, eliminating machined shoulders, threads, cover plates, and heat-formed studs -- so you save. Using a retaining ring to fasten your assembly instead of a traditional fastener not only reduces your costs, but also saves the environment. This quality part offers lot traceability. Want to know what you can do with a Rotor Clip Retaining Ring?

|Friction bearing universal joints for packaging|
Friction bearing universal joints are available from Ruland in a wide variety of sizes, styles, and materials, giving packaging equipment designers more than 3,000 standard options to choose from. These components are selectively heat treated and ground for higher strength compared to competitor units. Single universal joints are best suited for space-constrained applications with angular misalignment up to 45 degrees; double for applications with a wide distance between shafts or those in need of extreme angular misalignment accommodation up to 90 degrees. Can be equipped with nitrile boot covers for abrasion and oil resistance.
|Gear units, motors, and VFDs for intralogistics and warehousing|
NORD's innovative and high-efficiency gear units, motors, and VFDs work in unison to transport items quickly with precise control and lower energy consumption. They are engineered to lower Total Cost of Ownership, reduce the number of system variants, and reduce overall maintenance time and costs. NORD's primary products for intralogistics include: LogiDrive Complete Drive Solution (gearbox, motor, and VFD), Condition Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance, and NORCON APP with NORDAC ACCESS Bluetooth Stick mobile commissioning and service solution for all NORD drives.
|Sealing fasteners can optimize your designs|
Highly specialized sealing fasteners include sealing screws, sealing nuts, sealing bolts, and sealing washers. Unlike ordinary fasteners, sealing fasteners are configured with a rubber O-ring (or a rubber element) that, when squeezed, permanently seals out a wide range of contaminants from entering and damaging equipment while preventing leakage of toxins into the environment. ZAGO sealing fasteners are designed to withstand harsh weather and extreme temperatures and are vibration and pressure resistant.
