ELECTRONICS: Rotor Clip Co. Inc. manufactures a varied range of wave springs for applications requiring quick connectorsFlatwire Wave Springs and Retaining Rings are used in a variety of quick connectors/circular plug-in connectors with threaded and bayonet locking for military, aerospace and industrial applications.
The designer has the choice of single (overlapping ends save axial space and prevent radial jamming), nested (provides a higher load than a single turn wave spring and uses the same radial space as a single turn design) and multi-turn (does not cling to the bore; greater deflection while taking up half the space of coiled springs) wave springs to meet the unique demands of virtually any connector application.
Rotor Clip wave springs are currently manufactured from carbon steel and 17-7 stainless.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
