MOTION CONTROL: Ruland Manufacturing Co. Inc. offers a full range of smooth bore shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel to meet the demanding needs of food processing, medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Ruland shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel are available in one- and two-piece clamp-style designs with bore sizes from 1/8 to 3 inch and 3 to 50 mm. Clamp-style collars do not mar the shaft, provide higher holding power and are more easily adjustable when compared to set screw type shaft collars. All Ruland shaft collars are single point faced to ensure proper alignment. A precise shaft collar face to bore relationship ensures that components are both properly positioned and not tilted on the shaft.
Ruland also offers shaft collars in type 303 stainless steel, aluminum, black oxide carbon steel and engineered plastic.
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.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
