The GPG Series of motor-gearboxes combines the benefits of flat-armature "Pancake" motors with a fully integrated, ultra-slim gearbox for drive applications across a range of industries. The general-purpose gearmotors feature 12 cm disk armature dc motors rated at 12V to 64W, 24V to 110W, or 36V to 200W. GPG units can be used in welder conductor feeds, wire drawers, small rewinders and medical devices, and as wheel drives for mobility equipment such as golf carts
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.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
