FLUID POWER: Ideal coupling selection takes into account factors such as torque profiles, temperature, inertia mismatch and rotational speed to name a few. Somewhat lengthy calculations can be required to most efficiently determine the correct coupling type and size based on these factors. The new online coupling configurator at www.rw-america.com allows for easy, registration free, selection of the appropriate coupling based on simple questions and easily identifiable features shown in product images. Whether it is high precision couplings, vibration damping couplings, line shafting or mechanical torque limiters you require. Proper coupling selection is made easy with this new tool.
There is a new cooperation between the Industrial Internet Consortium and Plattform Industrie 4.0 to explore the potential alignment of their two architecture efforts: the Reference Architecture Model for Industrie 4.0 (RAMI4.0) and the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA).
The problem with a four-, five-, or six-year degree is that they don’t teach engineers the soft skills required to have a successful career. Here are seven skills that every engineering graduate needs to be successful.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations. Autodesk’s customers are looking for a solution that eliminates project bottlenecks, such as the time-consuming and error-ridden process of shuttling design reviews and revisions back and forth among team members.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
