Planetary sun gear (not shown) connects to the rotor of this pancake motor configuration.
For a given size motor, the larger the rotor, the more torque available. However, the bigger the rotor, the more wasted space inside.
Inserting a single-stage planetary gear train takes advantage of this available real estate. The result: a pancake motor measuring 80 mm in diameter and 12.5 mm thick that delivers more than 70 Newton-centimeters of torque.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
