series of 1 mm pitch polyurethane timing belts are designed for miniature
applications and to run with the new 1 mm pitch timing belt
pulleys. Offered with Kevlar cord reinforcement, the A6B18M Series are
stocked in 22 different groove sizes ranging from 94 to 559 mm (3.701 to
22.008") while the A6G18M Series with fiberglass cord reinforcement are stocked
in pitch lengths from 142 to 705 mm (5.591 to 27.756 inch). These belts come
standard in 3 and 6 mm widths; however, special widths can be cut from sleeves.
Kevlar belts (double span) have a breaking point of 300 N per 1 mm (214 lbf.
per 1/8 in.) and the fiberglass belts, also double span, have a breaking point
of 165 N per 1 mm (117 lbf. per 1/8 in.). Both have a temperature range
of -30 to +85C (-22 to +185F). Since these timing belts are the smallest
standardized pitch timing belts available they are ideal for important
prototype or production applications that require high-quality, miniature
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
