These guide systems are made for high speed and low cost. The Speed Demon OSG type and Speed Demon SG type systems run up to 10m per second (32.8 ft/sec), accelerate at up to 50 m/sec squared, and take loads up to 5,600N, or 1,259 lb. The OSG systems have five rail and block sizes, while the SG systems have seven rail sizes and 19 block designs. The rails in both systems have pre-drilled mounting holes, dual RC60 steel shafting and come in lengths up to 4m (13 ft), but can be ordered cut to size. The OSG blocks have four dual-contact roller bearings with two bearing on eccentric mounts, while the SG blocks have one, two or three bearings. OSG running straightness is +/- 0.02 mm (+/- .0008 inches), and the SG's is +/-0.015 mm (+/-.0006 inches). Both systems use felt wipers, high-angular dual-contact bearings, and corrosion-resistant materials. LM76http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-627
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
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.
