Rebranding for rolled products division

Arnold Magnetic Technologies has rebranded its rolled products division. The division’s new name, Precision Thin Metals, or PTM, better reflects the strategic role PTM’s thin and ultra-thin specialty alloys play in high-efficiency motors, generators, batteries and emerging technologies that require lighter, smaller and more efficient system designs.


Arnold officially unveiled the rebrand at the CWIEME Coil Winding Expo in Berlin, Germany, in June.



Europacable publication

The ‘Introduction to medium and low voltage cables in distribution networks as support of smart grids’ is the latest publication from Europacable.


The paper is published in response to the increasing debate on the need to upgrade Europe´s distribution networks into what are often referred to as “smart grids”, and is available now from the Europacable website.



Certified safety

Selected products from the Icotek cable entry systems have been certified to comply with the EU Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX), for equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres of zones 1 and 21.


The ATEX (Ex) directive applies to all explosive industrial atmospheres including mining, with the Icotek range being suitable for zones G (gas) and D (dust) in equipment group II, category 2. ATEX stands for Atmosphere Explosible, and is the short name for the European directive 94/9/EC, regulating the market launch of explosion protected electrical and non-electrical devices, components and protection systems.


Since 1st July 2003 it has applied to all new equipment and protective devices. The directive is aimed at manufacturers and importers in the 27 member states of the EU as well as the four EFTA member states and Turkey.
