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.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
