MATERIALS/FASTENING: A new series of metric leveling mounts from All Metric Small Parts (aMsp) swivels 15 degrees to all sides of the centerline to adjust to uneven surfaces. Uses include leveling machine tools, electronic racks, benches and more. A jam nut is part of the leveling assembly. The mounts, identified as the MVAYNAM and MVAYNFM Series, have isolator pads which vary in diameter from 40 to 80 mm. These anti-slip pads are made of fiberglass-reinforced Polyamide and their height ranges from 93 to 180 mm. The aMsp eStore shows single unit, as well as quantity prices, for these handwheels, which are stocked for overnight delivery worldwide. Applications include use in linear motion and rotary table positioning. 3-D CAD models are available.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
