Mechanical torque limiters have been employed for many years as a simple and reliable means of torque overload protection in case of machine jams and crashes. The actuation ring moves to trigger the external sensor. With a compact, simple design, they are absolutely backlash-free and torsionally rigid, providing sound insurance against costly machine down time resulting from broken tooling, components, etc.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
