ATLANTA Drive Systems Inc. announces a
new range of Torque Supporter Precision Rack & Pinion Drive Systems that
can handle highly dynamic and heavy loads. These systems utilize precision
planetary reducers with an integral output housing and outboard bearing to
provide a rigid support to the output pinion.
reducers with output flanges are limited in the forces they can transmit by the
tilting moment that the output bearings can handle. By adding an output bearing
housing, this limitation is removed. The design of the pinion allows for
smaller pitch diameters, which reduces the reducer torque. Because of these
design enhancements, a smaller reducer can typically be used.
can be used for a wide range of applications, including axis drives requiring
precise positioning and repeatability, traveling gantries and columns, pick-and-place
robots, CNC routers, and material handling systems. Heavy loads and duty cycles
can be easily handled with this drives.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
