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.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
