MOTION CONTROL/POWER TRANSMISSION: Two new catalogs from Ameridrives Power Transmission (APT) offer engineering data, application service factors and selection information and procedures for APT’s Series 2000, 3000 and 5000 Americardan® Universal Joints. They are available at no charge. Catalogs provide information on U-joint design; construction and assembly; speed limits; companion flange dimensions; design variations and custom applications; kinematics and motion characteristics; bore tolerances and weights; and more. The 2000 and 3000 Series universal joints are ideal for industrial applications requiring high-torque capacity and flexibility to operate at high misalignment angles. The 5000 Series universal joints are heavy-duty, high-torque units that offer greater dynamic ratings than other universal joints of equivalent size.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
