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).
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
