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.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
