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.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
