For more than fifty years the Leroy-Somer foundry has been designing and producing grey and spheroidal graphite cast-iron components in short, medium and long production runs. A pillar of the engine manufacturer's industrial organisation, the unit also provides a multi-sector response to the most demanding technical briefs for the design, engineering or manufacturing of foundry components.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. FPT Industrial is again taking part in the annual, world-famous Dakar rally, and is a 2019 sponsor, equipping the four trucks of the Petronas Team De Rooy IVECO with its Cursor 13 engines.
Southco has expanded its successful line of E6 Constant Torque Hinges with a plastic version designed for use in corrosive environments.

The trend on truck-mounted concrete pumps is for greater reach with less weight. Technical advances at Schwing are currently making it one of the market leaders in this field. In order to raise operator comfort levels on truck-mounted concrete pumps with large booms, the company has launched an innovative vibration damping system. Schwing, in partnership with Baumer Electric AG, has developed a new strain sensor with an IP69K protection rating and an exceptionally broad measuring range to provide precise signaling of deflections as they occur in the boom.
Baumer is extending its portfolio with the DST55R range of strain sensors with long-term seal,
offering a cost-effective solution for measuring in tough outdoor conditions. The sensors are a significant improvement on the standard models on the market due to their category C5-M corrosion-resistant materials, IP69K protection rated seal and the Baumer proTect+ impermeability concept as well as their digital CANopen interface, and extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. They are particularly suitable for industrial applications in the outdoor environment such as mobile automation.
