R+W's Model SK1 stainless-steel coupling is ideal for wash down applications in both the packaging and food processing industries. Developed as a failsafe alternative to electrical current limitation, it utilizes a backlash-free, patented, pre-loaded ball detent system, disengaging in 1 to 3 msec when an overload is detected. There are four versions available, including a single position and a multi-position, along with a full disengagement version and a load-holding version. All R+W torque limiters come with an external ring which moves at disengagement to trigger a proximity sensor which facilitates machine shut-down.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
