High overload protection in a stainless-steel design
Made for wash-down applications in packaging, food and beverage industries, this coupling protects from overload with a patented, backlash-free ball detent system that disengages within 1-3 mse when an overload is detected. It comes in single position, multi-position, load-holding and free-wheeling versions, which are preset in the factory to a customer-specified disengagement torque. They can also be adjusted after installation. They are built with a stainless-steel bellow that compensates for axial, angular and lateral misalignment simultaneously. It has a low mass and weight, so there's a low moment of inertia. It comes in a torque range of 0.2-1,800 Nm (1.8 to 15,930 inch lb), and both shaft hubs are custom-bored for shaft sizes from 4-80 mm (0.25-3.125 inches).
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.
