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
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
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.
