are currently three sizes of Ogura's series of hydraulic caliper disc
brake available: model HOB-360CP, HOB-1200CP and HOB-2800CP. They have a maximum
clamping force of 810, 2,700 and 6,300 lb, respectively. Besides modifying
pressure to change torque in an application, multiple brake modules can be used
as well as multiple brake discs.
brakes are primarily designed for heavy duty work in machining centers and
machine tools. Besides machine tool applications, these brakes can also be used
in industrial applications where high torque is required.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
The Internet happened.” Those three words spoken yesterday by Marc Ostertag, North America president of B&R Automation at Pacific Design & Manufacturing, now taking place in Anaheim through Feb. 11, continues to bring ever-lasting changes to our ways of life and will undoubtedly transform manufacturing.
