MOTION CONTROL:Exlar’s 2010 Product Catalog and Engineering Guide is now available. A manufacturer of high performance servo actuators and motors, Exlar offers seven product families featuring a broad range of capabilities with peak forces exceeding 40,000 lbf, linear speeds in excess of 60 inches per second and a life expectancy 15 times longer than that offered by ball screw technology.The 2010 Catalog details Exlar’s selection of solutions for linear and rotary motion control applications. Product families span integrated actuator and motor designs, explosion proof designs, force tube actuators, and servo motor and gearmotors. The catalog and engineering guide additionally details Exlar’s advanced roller screw and stator technology as applied to linear and rotary actuators-with drawings, performance graphs and complete specifications for various configurations and applications. With a wide array of features and capabilities, Exlar offers several robust choices matched to each application’s diverse requirements.
An easy-to-reference engineering section includes definitions and equations for determining move-profile, velocity and acceleration, force, thrust, motor velocity and torque. Also included is a table of factors for converting units of rotary inertia, torque and material densities between English and metric units.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
