MATERIALS: Carr Lane Mfg. Co.’s versatile threaded detent pins can be fit with a wide selection of knob handles for various applications. These solid quick-release pins have a ground shank and a threaded end. Shank diameters are available from 3/16 to ½ inch, along with metric sizes, and grip lengths from 1/2 inch to 4 inches. Pins come with built-in locking balls, which are held in place by spring force—push to insert, pull to remove. Carr Lane supplies a variety of ball knobs, t handles, fluted knobs and recessed top knobs for use with the threaded pins.
All Carr Lane toggle clamps have a comfortable handle grip, and are made of durable high-grade steel (many also available in stainless steel).
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.
