Today a good command of English is self-evident.
How about your knowledge of technical terms? At regular intervals handling publishes in- teresting news and translates some vocabulary.
Effi cient lightweight axis made of carbon fi ber Components made of carbon fi ber are making many advances in racing and automotive engineering.
With the CFK- axis system CLD, Schunk is now show- casing for the fi rst time, a standardized linear axis made of carbon fi ber.
It is the lightest directly driven linear axis on the market.
Compared with aluminum pro- fi les, the weight of the profi le reduces by 58 per cent.
For multi-axis handling systems, where complete Z- or Y- axis are moved, the lightweight design en- sures effi ciency and helps the axes to accelerate, saving a lot of energy in the process.
The innovative linear module from Schunk offers many advantages.
The carbon composite makes the axes extremely light, yet stable.
Due to the higher E-module of the material, they dispose of a higher bending and torsio- nal stiffness than aluminum profi les.
The high dampening reduces vibrations and results in a higher dynamical stiffness.
If the material heats up during operati- on, it stays dimensionally stable.
These are the best pre-conditions for micron- precise use of inspection and handling applications.
The effi cient light-weight axes give an edge to the users in respect to cycle times and precision.

The new series of the Shinkansen will start running between Tokyo und Shin Aomori from December 2010.
The in- crease in travel speed along this line from 275 km/h to 320 km/h required a new high performance braking system, which was developed by Knorr-Brem- se.
The axle-mounted brake calipers in the system are fi tted with needle roller bearings and drawn cup needle roller bearings, inner rings, axial be- aring washers, bearing washers and axial needle roller and cage assemblies from INA.
The drawn cup needle roller bearings are protected against corrosi- on by the Corrotect N coating.
This is an extremely thin surface coating free from chromium VI, developed by the Schaeffl er Group.
It protects products and components against corrosion and especially against the formation of rust on the running surfaces under the seals, which could be caused by condensation, rainwater or contaminated water.
