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.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
