How To Design For Heavy Loads

How To Design For Heavy Loads

 

August 5th, 2016

Miniature Metric Precision Ball Screws

The challenge for OEM engineers is about designing even more compact applications that provide smooth, precise movement and don’t require compromises in machine performance.

Now that Thomson is offering three styles of mounting interfaces for its miniature metric precision ball screws as standard sizes, small-space application design options are virtually limitless.

Joining the family’s threaded style (TSI) mounting interface are flanged (FSI) and rounded (RSI) styles, which benefit from a unique multi-liner ball return system that provides smooth and quiet operation.
Though small in stature, they have been known to achieve increased lifecycles and twice the load capacity of comparable models in most sizes.

How Can You Place Control Of Factory Automation Back In The Hands Of Operators?

How Can You Place Control Of Factory Automation Back In The Hands Of Operators?

 

June 29th, 2016

Wouldn’t it be efficient to have a robot that can easily change its task rather than a machine confined to one job? The UR collaborative robot’s ease of programming and flexibility allows for operators to program and move the robot between tasks.

In the past, robots used in production faced several limitations. Fixed installations, no human interaction, separation of space between human and robot, and a long term ROI are just a few. Today, the new collaborative robots are relocatable, allow for frequent interaction and shared space with humans, and bring in a short term ROI.

Universal Robot’s Collaborative robots are easy to set up, easy to program, easy to re-deploy, and are safe to work side by side with humans.

These groundbreaking robots are improving the work environment by relieving employees of ergonomically unfavorable tasks. Work place safety is improved when the robots can take on the dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks. This ultimately saves...

How Do You Use The Smartmotor?

How Do You Use The Smartmotor?

 

June 22nd, 2016

The Moog Animatics SmartMotor™ has been used in an array of different markets, showing its versatility and programming capabilities. Take a look at these unique case studies to see how Moog Animatics solutions can help solve your motion control challenges.

Custom Spooling Patterns:

The most effective way to package delicate materials of exceptionally long length, such as fine copper wire or fiber optics, is to use the Traverse and Take-up method.
The spooling mechanism moves back and forth in a specific manner, being driven and controlled by the SmartMotor, to precisely apply the material onto the spool with the desired pattern and tension. The SmartMotor method is highly customizable, easily programmed, extremely precise and allows quick job changeover.

Linear and Rotary Motion in Digital Architecture:

Trak-kit is a modern approach to entertainment and telepresence, with the SmartMotor at the heart of the movement...literally. Now, flat...
