Dynabrade has introduced the new air-powered Pipe Belt Finisher. This tool is ideal for blending and finishing applications on metal, stainless steel and a variety of other materials.  This tool can be used on Pharmaceutical Equipment, Food Machinery, Railing and other Metal Fabrication applications. The Pipe Belt Finisher uses abrasive belts ½” – 1-1/2” wide x 30” long. The tool is ideal for blending cylinders, sanding castings, cleaning welds and fabricating metal. The Pipe Belt Finisher is also excellent for blending and polishing tubing and round stock, finishing structural steel and various blending applications.  The design of the tool allows for 180 degrees of work piece abrasive capture at any time. The slack of the abrasive belt allows for use on various sizes of pipe. Utilizing both coated and non-woven belts, the tool features a tension arm, which allows for quick belt change. Both the belt housing and side handle are adjustable for operator comfort. Utilizing a .7 HP Air Motor, the tool runs at 3400 RPM. Model number 14360. Made in the U.S.

These all new 602 sealed sprint car engines are designed to be affordable, dependable and competitive solutions for sprint car racing. The camshaft is drilled, and a removable spud is installed without the engine being disassembled or any GM factory sealing bolts removed. For chassis requiring oil pan clearance, Pace Performance installs a 8QT "late model style" oil pan. This oil pan provides the clearance needed for normal/original engine mounts. This engine retains all the GM factory security sealing bolts (except the oil pan) and additional serial numbered cable-style security seals. Cable seals are also wrapped with tamper-proof tape which is printed with a QR code. This QR code can be scanned with any smart phone and will take you to a web page that shows engine build date, serial number, security seal numbers and location of security seals. The engine build sheet will also be updated with any future work or maintenance done to the engine. DIRTcar security cable seals installed and documented. Also included with this engine is the patent pending Crate Innovations crankshaft hub & slip yoke package. This assembly bolts directly to the crankshaft and does not require any torque tube housing modifications.

Cosen Saws, a global manufacturer of industrial band saws, has introduced MechaLogix Cosen Predictive Computing—a cloud-based system that offers a feature that monitors the performance of a blade and can accurately forecast the number of remaining cutting hours left before a saw blade dulls and is no longer cutting with precision or a complete breakage. MechaLogix also gives the user real time performance data and can report issues like excessive vibration, overheating and changes in fluid line pressure. The root cause of an issue is reported in real time, which equates to minimal down time and more efficient operations. The technology is intuitive and user customizable. Adjustable alert notification settings work seamlessly with the mobile app.

Blade Life Assessment – Monitoring and alert notification of a saw blade’s remaining useful life.   The technology will provide advance notice of required saw blade replacement.    

Increased Machine Efficiency & Machine Life – Our technology provides real time analysis of individual components and overall machine health status. It can send notification of abnormal conditions from motors and bearings. It also alerts on frequent consumable items like hydraulic and cutting fluid.

Increased Operational Efficiency – Our technology can provide production reports to aid in identifying best practices and training needs. Our advanced monitoring and notification system alerts the operation when machine maintenance is needed which aids efficiency in the scheduling of planned events.
