What do automotive production lines and HVAC assembly lines have in common? 🤔

They can all benefit from our Fourier Belt Measurement System (BMS).

The FourierBMS is used all over the world to reliably measure belt tension with the highest precision.

With Quality Assurance, what’s more important than traceability?

With so many connections between cars’ technical systems, manufacturers need peace of mind that all the connections are fastened securely.

Fortunately, our Gusto POPP Clamp Release Tool offers 100 per cent traceability. It automatically records each clamp, checking it has closed successfully.

Data is then transmitted wirelessly to the receiver, integrating seamlessly into your data management systems. That’s how you do Industry 4.0!

Downtime is frustrating, costly — and avoidable.

This is especially true for process industries. A breakdown in one part of the production line can bring the whole factory grinding to a halt.

Machinery belts keep production lines running. Don’t let incorrect belt tension keep you from meeting your production quotas.

Ideally, industrial belts — in agricultural machinery, automotive, HVAC assembly and other OEM solutions — would vibrate at a single frequency.

But they don’t, which can make taking the best measurements difficult.

Of course, bespoke is best.

That includes sensor heads used to measure industrial belt vibrations. They must be the perfect size and shape to get in those tight spots, and reach the best spot on the belt.

That’s why we’ve designed and made 50 custom sensor heads, so far.

Are we seeing the death of the manual handbrake? These systems are giving way to new electronic handbrake systems, but they are costly to produce for OEMs.

To reduce costs, micro belt applications are being developed. Read my latest blog, where I explain how proper belt tension in these smaller systems can help OEMs reduce their costs.

Incorrect belt tension is the biggest cause of belt failure. In the worst cases, it can cause complete engine shutdowns.

Too much tension results in stress on the belt, bearings and shafts. Too little causes slippage, excess heat and premature belt and pulley wear.

To the balance just right, you should look to our range of accurate and reliable belt meters: Webpage: clavis.co.uk/products/

From tractor engines, to combine harvester conveyors and grain dryers, belts play a part in every step of arable farming.

Harsh conditions, challenging weather and long hours put these machines through their paces each year. Breakdowns are a normal part of life on the farm — but they don’t have to be.

For machinery that runs longer, faster and more efficiently, you must ensure that agricultural belts are correctly tensioned with our accurate and reliable belt tension measurement equipment.
