These magnetic particle brakes have a hollow shaft, and don't need a precision alignment shaft for installation. They slide on and couple with a roll pin or integral clamp, a torque arm holding the brake's body still. They are used where variable, smooth slip torque is needed, such as in winding systems. Input current controls the unwind tension. Torque comes from magnetizing microscopic stainless steel spheres. A higher electric input makes for a stronger internal magnetic field, which creates higher torque that is independent of slip RPM. Hollow shaft brakes from 0-15 to 220 lb-inches. Larger solid shaft brakes, as well as clutches up to 300 lb-feet with 1,900W heat dissipation are available from stock.
Time was when sports equipment was made only from common, everyday, low-tech materials. But now sports equipment has a new, high-tech ingredient that is helping players take their game to the next level.
A humanoid diving robot has recovered treasure from the wreck of French King Louis XIV's flagship, untouched for nearly 400 years. The bot not only looks somewhat human-shaped, it's also got stereoscopic humanlike vision, artificial intelligence, and haptic force feedback.
