provide precision for parallel offset shafts, and transmit constant angular
velocity and torque in a wide range of parallel shaft misalignments. They are
used in a variety of machine applications such as printing, embossing, paper
converting, pharmaceutical and automated assembly systems.
in design, the couplings keep out contaminants and foreign matter, enabling the
couplings to be used in less than ideal operating environments.
Offset couplings are designed to handle high amounts of parallel offset up to
17 inch and are available with torque capacities up to 459,000 inch-lb. They
impose no side loads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
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.
