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.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
