DIRAK introduces the new 1-103 Slide Shoe for
Cams, designed specifically to prevent the panel surface from being scratched
by the rotation of a cam during the closing and opening process. The 1-103
Slide Shoe allows the cam to slide easily during rotation, eliminating
metal-to-metal friction often resulting in surface scratches and paint
chipping. Fallen metal parts can cause short circuits and fallen paint
particles can negatively affect the equipment inside the enclosures. The 1-103 Slide Shoe features a unique securing
mechanism, referred to as the "Snap-Hook," which holds the Slide Shoe securely
in place on the cam and prevents it from turning or becoming loose during the
application life cycle.
Material of the 1-103 Slide Shoe has
a low coefficient of friction thereby providing ideal gliding properties
against metal panels. Wear or damage to the material is not incurred under
load or surface movement.
The 1-103 Slide Shoe consists of
two separate POM components, a housing and a latch wedge.
To attach the 1-103 Slide Shoe
simply push the housing component onto the cam until it aligns with the
cam. The latch wedge component is pushed to slide under the cam until the Snap-Hook
securely latches into the opening with an audible "click" verifying proper
installation. This latching mechanism eliminates the risk of the component
falling off. In addition, the secure locking feature ensures that the
1-103 Slide Shoe will not twist out of place as the cam rotates or as
pressure is applied.
The 1-103 Slide Shoe can be
applied to any 35 and 45 mm single or 3-point cam having the standard 3 mm
The 1-103 Slide Shoe can be
installed onto a pre-assembled quarter-turn after sliding the quarter-turn
through the panel cutout. It can be easily retrofitted to any application.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
