MICO, Incorporated introduces a trailer brake Load-Apportioning-Valve (LAV)

MICO, Incorporated introduces a trailer brake Load-Apportioning-Valve (LAV) for use with MICO MOBEUS EH brake systems on Agriculture and other Off-Highway vehicles and trailers. The new LAV proportions trailer brake pressure utilizing a tow vehiclees hydraulic brake signal in conjunction with real-time trailer load sensing to continuously control pressure-reduction braking to the trailer brakes without utilization of tank-pressure. The result is load sensitive trailer braking that reduces the occurrence of trailer wheel lock-up or skidding.
Trailer load is sensed by the load apportioning valve and the output pressure from the valve modifies output trailer brake pressure in accordance with the current weight of the trailer load. As trailer-load is increased or decreased, the trailer brake pressure is changed proportionally. Lighter loads induce lower trailer brake pressures whereas higher loads result in higher trailer brake pressures.
MICO MOBEUS LAV provides several benefits for the end user, including:
- Significant reduction in trailer wheel lock-up and skidding
- Compatible with MICO MOBEUS ABS systems and associated circuitry, as well as other MICO braking components and systems.
- Meets EU trailer safety requirements
- Fits with a variety of mounting configurations
- Vehicle brake pressure is used directly as the input to the LAV
- Wide temperature operating range of -40 C to +80 C
- Cost-effective system with simple installation and no tank port necessary
MICO MOBEUS EH systems are designed to provide state-of-the-art vehicular braking control of Off-Highway and Agricultural vehicles and trailers.

Revolutionary sealing material Turcon turns 50 Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches celebration to commemorate anniversary

From airplanes to spacecraft, prosthetics to wind turbines and almost everything inbetween, Turcon is the go-to seal material for a broad range of applications. This revolutionary material is a part offand has made possibleesome of the most innovative engineering advancements in the last half-century. Now, on the eve of the PTFE materialls 50th anniversary, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is commemorating the materialls impact on the world.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has brought together customers such as Boeing and Eaton; former executives from Busak+Shamban and Trelleborg; and engineers, researchers, manufacturers and others who have been involved with Turcon over the years for a multimedia retrospective.

The project unfolds in stages. A website with photos, videos and first-person contributions from a variety of people in the industry debuts in May. The project also includes a commissioned, hand-painted mural showing Turcons impact over the decades. Once a month, from May 2012 to January 2013, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will reveal the next panel in the mural, along with relevant photos, videos and other media.

The brand started with W.S. Shamban in 1962 and if you look at all the engineers who are in the market today, they donnt recognize the Trelleborg name with the Turcon brand, says Nancy Getz, Product Manager of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Fort Wayne. Thatts what makes this anniversary so important.

Turcon has a long history tied tightly to the Fort Wayne community; it was developed by Bill Shamban, founder of W.S. Shamban Co., which moved to Fort Wayne in 1956. Turcon was produced in Fort Wayne facilities under the W.S. Shamban Co. and Busak+Shamban names, and now by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. The name has changed, but the quality standard and respect for its history remain the same.

Turcon is a proprietary polytetrafluoroethylene-based (PTFE) sealing material introduced by Bill Shamban and Hank Traub in 1960. It is a wear-resistant seal material with unique properties unmatched in the industry. Turcon seals are used in a variety of applications and serve numerous fields.

When I joined in 86 the premier material we had to work with in terms of engineering applications was the Turconn material, says Tim Callison, President of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Marketing Americas and a company employee since 1986. Twenty-six years later, the premium material we have for applications today is Turcon. It is a fantastic material with great breadth in its ability to provide solutions for our customers. Itts still regarded as the premier PTFE compounded material. It is still solving problems for us today, just as it did 26 years ago.

Currently, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Great Lakes is based in Fort Wayne. The manufacturing facility is in the same location as the very first W.S. Shamban & Co. plant. The manufacturing plant is accompanied by the Hank A. Traub Technical Center, built in 1997, which serves as Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Americas headquarters and includes research and development labs. In 2010, Trelleborg opened its new Supply Chain Management Americas facility in Fort Wayne.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions plans to display an exhibit focusing on Turcons history at the Allen County-Fort Wayne Historical Society later this year, as well as sponsor a speaker in January for the societyys free-speaker series.

A new way to proportionally distribute flow between two hydraulic circuits

Comatrol - a global leader in the design, manufacture and sale of engineered hydraulic cartridge valves and HICs - introduces the PFD10-OD Proportional Flow Divider for compensated flow sharing between two motors or hydraulic circuits. This circuit-saver solution takes the input flow and delivers precise flow management, providing engineers with a new tool for distributing flow on their applications.

The PFD10-OD is an electro-proportional, compensated, normally open, flow dividing, pre-engineered HIC. When there is no current applied to the coils, the inlet flow is divided equally between the work ports A and B, with flows up to 40 LPM (10.7 GPM). The flow ratio between the 2 ports will proportionally vary as current is provided to the coils (from 0 to 40 LPM out each work port). The valvees internal pressure compensation of both work ports provide the precise, repeatable and load-independent flow control to both work ports / circuits.

Emanuele Vezzani, Comatrol Account Manager (Italy), shares, We originally created this product for a unique customer application, building off our existing products and circuit expertise, and in the end came up with a design that we feel can find many homes with our customers. As weeve shared this new compensated flow divider concept with customers, applications quickly come to mind where they could apply this pre-engineered solution.

When thinking of where to apply, think of dual circuits or motors that continuously require flow, and need to proportionally manage the amount of flow between them. Additionally, the built-in pressure compensator provides repeatable flow sharing performance, regardless of the loads on the circuits or motors.

The PFD10-OD is a pre-engineered HIC that can be ordered using its nomenclature to specify options needed for the application, like coil voltage and termination, port sizes and seals. The aluminum manifold design is optimized for a small space claim on the vehicle, with 2 mounting holes provided as standard.

The coils are designed for incorporation on machine control architecture that utilizes Sauer-Danfoss PLUS+11 hardware. Adding PFD10-OD to your application using PLUS+1 GUIDE software is as easy as drag-and-drop.

DP600LX Series displays run on a versatile LinuxTM operating system, the recognized industry standard for displays. Linux allows use of the screen editor in the Sauer-Danfoss GUIDE tool chain or an alternative screen editor.
The ARM-11 processor is like a new engine under the hood, powering the DP600LX Series displays to optimal performance, Maher said. The smooth new operating system serves as the transmission, helping the operator maximize the efficiency of electronic system control and monitoring.
The LCD, enclosure design, screen resolution and screen editor are similar to previous models, enabling backward compatibility.
Industry-Leading Viewability
Sauer-Danfoss has enhanced viewability that was already best-in-class, incorporating 15-bit true color and optional optically bonded LCD/lens technology into the DP600LX Series. Available with DP600LX and DP610LX models, optically bonded LCD/lens technology enhances clarity, increases sunlight visibility and prevents fogging by eliminating the air gap between the lens and the LCD module.

We took industry-leading viewability and made it even better, Maher said. The DP600LX Series displays feature sharper color that is clear and legible in sunlight and bright and powerful at night for maximum viewability.
