Expanding on its range of servo worm reducers, Atlanta is adding a high torque, economy and basic version, each based on the company's existing high-precision servo worm reducers. The high torque version has 150 percent of the ordinary reducer's torque capacity, with a backlash level at less than one arc-minute. It has increased bearing capacity and an option for flanged connections. The economy model has a less than six arc-minute backlash, and saves money with a simplified housing and assembly. The basic version has 90 percent of the standard reducers' torque capacity, and a backlash of less than 12 arc-minutes. There are four levels of precision available, plus a wide range of motor couplings and mounting flanges for mounting virtually any servo motor.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
