The SP high-speed gearbox reduces no-load running torque and can
be run up to 4,500 rpm in continuous operations. It is designed to mount
directly to servo motors running continuous-duty cycles. Operating at a lower
temperature than the servo motor, the gear reducer acts as a heat sink to draw
heat from the servo. Reported advantages include: longer and faster servo motor
operation, and decreased maintenance costs due to the cooler temperature.
Additional advantages to the SP series include: interchangeable adapter plates,
single-piece housing construction, thermal expansion compensation, and
dual-tapered ouput roller bearings. For more information, visit www.alphagear.com.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
