Deschner Corp. has combined the shock-absorbing
feature of its Cushioneer® shock absorber with its speed regulator model
Kinechek® to offer a hybrid model called the Cushion-Start Kinechek.
The impact-absorbing feature called Cushion-Start is a
safeguard for those applications where a fast-moving load exerts an impact
force beyond the capacity of the Kinechek. Approximately 25 percent of the
beginning of the stroke is used for cushioning, then the remaining portion of
the stroke will control the load with the same constant uniformness as a
and fully adjustable, Cushion-Start model Kinecheks are available in ½, 1, 2 and
3 inch, with a maximum capacity of 1,200 lb (including impact when load strikes
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
