New gearbox runs smooth, quiet and with more torque
The new AE series uses a patented one-piece shaft carrier design, and is supported with an oversized ball bearing straddle mount to provide more radial and axial loading capacity. Its stainless-steel output housing and patented sealing technology makes it a versatile, low-cost servo grade gearbox. Its new AE planet gears and greater tooth-to-tooth contact ratio make for more than 100 percent torque capacities versus other spur-gearing geometry. It has an optimized Helix angle that makes it run smooth and quiet, even at extreme speeds. It can go up to 10,000 rpms input with less than 8 arc-min and less than 56 dB. It is available in seven sizes (AE 050, 070, 090, 120, 155, 205 and 235), and is equipped with every single stage ratio (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10:1). It has more binary (double stage) ratios than others of its type. It's covered by a two-year, tip-to-toe warranty and delivery is guaranteed within two weeks or it's free.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
