Vacuum technology used in the packaging industry is expected to exhibit three characteristics above all: high process stability, high wear resistance, and high productivity. Since 1985, engineers at Fipa company have been developing vacuum cups, pumps, ejectors and system solutions with precisely these performance traits. Meanwhile Fipa has extensively updated its product line. Vacuum cups made of Tepuflex are extremely wear-resistant. With its amazing ability to resist abrasion, this material has an extraordinary long service life. The high static friction of the vacuum cups provides for minimum cycle times, while simultaneously ensuring a secure hold even during high acceleration. Fipa keeps in stock an extensive selection of vacuum cup geometries that were specially developed for applications in the packaging industry. The company also has introduced vacuum pumps with high suction capacity for rapid evacuation of vacuum packaging and robust ejectors that can easily handle dust and dirt.

WindDrive: Highly Dynamic Mechatronic Drive System for Megawatt Wind Turbines
Because of the growing shortage of fossil fuels and the ongoing CO2 discussion, wind energy is growing in importance. The technological challenge when it comes to generating power in the multimegawatt classes is to find reliable, efficient wind turbines that satisfy all requirements regarding power fed into the grid in compliance with power plant standards. Current concepts employ frequency converter technology, usually coupled with mechanical gear drives, and cannot satisfy all aspects of these requirements. As a highly dynamic mechatronic system, WinDrive is an innovation that makes it possible, for the first time, to employ in wind turbines the technologies that have proven themselves over time in power plants. As a result, wind farms can generate electricitiy that matches the quality from conventional power plants. Using the innovative WinDrive unit, frequency converter technologies with their MTBF (mean time between failures) of less than two years, are no longer needed.
