Analysts predict real growth in the 3D printer market, and reckon it will be worth $32.78 billion by 2023.

Clavis frequently works with customers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or integrators at the pre-production design phase, we are increasingly seeing 3D printing factor into our own projects.

To add another thought to Thermo King’s article, below, don’t forget to check the belt tension, too!

Here’s my blog about the importance of belt tension in mobile refrigeration systems: Article: What The Truck?

Proper tensioning is crucial for efficient drive belt operations in large machines with high-powered motors — as you’d find in processing or chemical plants.

But the sheer size of these belts makes it more challenging to take effective measurements.

In his latest blog, Mark, operations director of Clavis, explains some of the best methods for measuring larger belts. This includes using the Type 7, our most advanced belt meter.

Clavis’ Type 7 belt meter isn’t only our most advanced model, it’s also our most popular.

One reason is because it measures in Hertz (Hz), Newtons (N), and Pounds (Lbs). It can tackle any belt, including toothed timing belts and poly-vee belts, and works with an optical or acoustic sensor head.

See the Type 7 for yourself, here: Webpage: clavis.co.uk/belt-tension-meters/

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking precision farming to another level. As these technologies make connectivity more vital, it’s crucial that belt measurement systems are a part of this digitalisation.

Proper tension avoids belt wear that leads to engine failures in the worst cases — to ensure equipment runs reliably and optimally without human supervision.
