Engineers can now get their hands on the latest edition of norelem’s iconic engineering catalogue, THE BIG GREEN BOOK
. The 2022 edition contains over 10,000 components more than the previous edition — it now features over 70,000 standard components.
Designed to help engineers find what components they need quickly and easily; this is the second edition of THE BIG GREEN BOOK
to be split into two volumes. norelem has ensured that the printing process of the 2022 edition is more sustainable, by using an innovative method that combines heat and power technology during printing to reduce CO2
emissions by up to 52%. As a result, the 2022 edition is ‘the greenest yet’. The two volumes contain over 2,700 pages between them, listing data, components, and reference guides.
norelem CEO Marcus Schneck said: “Design engineers across the globe regard THE BIG GREEN BOOK
as an invaluable reference guide. At norelem, our strapline is “Find it. Get it. Go.” and a key part of this is our product catalogue, which makes it easier for engineers to quickly identify the products they need.
“The 2020 edition was the first time we split the catalogue into two parts, with this updated version having over 10,000 more unique components, it was only natural for us to repeat that step. We know that this year’s edition of THE BIG GREEN BOOK
is our most detailed version yet and we are confident it will help our customers with their everyday challenges.”
Among the 10,000 new products added to the 2022 edition are new steel positioning cones and positioning bushes for centring units, which align and secure workpieces in an innovative way and enable a repeat accuracy of <0.003mm.
The book also introduces norelem’s range of pneumatic cylinders, which are suitable for numerous applications, as well as newly developed carriage guides, which enable positioning and movement horizontally and vertically. Additionally, the 2022 edition features an entirely new product category titled “norelem controls”, which lists electromechanical standard components for control and regulation.
