Industries' hollow shaft brakes mount easily. Magnetic particle brakes are
ideal for payout (unwind) tension control, load simulation (for testing motors
and actuators), and soft stops. Slip torque is precise, smooth and silent. Torque
is proportional to dc input current and is
independent of slip RPM.
Hollow shaft brakes are available with torque
ranges from 0.3 - 15 lb-inch to 75 lb-ft. Hollow shaft clutches torque ranges:
0.4 - 14 lb-inch to 65 lb-ft.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
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.
