R.M. Hoffman Company designated official United States distributor for the Moenninghoff product line.

German-based Moenninghoff and R.M. Hoffman Company are introducing a new partnership that will bring Moenninghoff tooth clutch, high-precision voice coil actuator, and robust flexible coupling products to new markets.

Sunnyvale, CA June 02, 2015


German-based Moenninghoff has designated the R.M. Hoffman Company as their official United States distributor for the Moenninghoff product line.

Moenninghoff President Bodo Finger stated, "I am pleased to announce that the R.M. Hoffman Company will be representing Moenninghoff in the U.S. market. For our firm, founded in 1916, this is a strategically important step. We are convinced that R.M. Hoffman is the kind of professional distributor we need to successfully grow our business in the United States. We especially believe in these joint efforts due to the high technical competence and experience that R.M. Hoffman represents. Working together, we can link our high-precision engineering solutions with R.M. Hoffman Companys in-depth knowledge of the market."

Tom Hoffman, President and CEO of R.M. Hoffman Company, added, "We are excited about being able to bring Moenninghoff products to engineers and designers in the United States. We are particularly excited to bring Moenninghoffs high-quality tooth clutches, high-precision voice coil actuators, and robust flexible couplings to U.S. design engineers."

Moenninghoff tooth clutches provide fixed-point switching for the precise synchronization needed for medical engineering applications, packaging machines, aeronautical engineering, door-mounted operating mechanisms, printing machines, ski lifts, and textile machines.

Voice coil actuators are highly-dynamic DC linear drives with a limited stroke range which are used as extremely high-precision positioning drives, oscillating drives with adjustable frequency or in adjustable-force mode. Voice coils are particularly suited to pick-and-place tasks in assembly and packaging machines, high-speed production machines and systems for guiding and focusing laser beams.

Shaft couplings with flexible circular membranes or torsionally-flexible elastomer elements serve to compensate for misalignment in the drive train or for shock loads and critical oscillations. Flexible couplings cater to a whole range of industrial applications; from the smallest servo engineering drives to the kinds of shaft connections found in marine engineering contexts, which are subject to high loads.

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
