DE-STA-CO's CAMCO RSD rotary servo drive is a zero-backlash,
cam-actuated drive that can be used with both rotary and linear systems for
accurate, smooth motions even at high speeds or with rapid speed changes. The
new drive is compatible with a variety of servo motors, offering the
flexibility and logic to handle applications that involve uneven motion or displacement,
change in direction or different products running on the same machine. A large
output mounting surface enables the RSD to support dials and high loads. Its
thru hole can accommodate accessory lines such as electrical wiring and air or
output options: large flange with thru hole; 32 mm diameter shaft; external
shrink disk for 30 or 40 mm shaft; and internal shrink disk for 30 mm shaft
overturning moment capacity thanks to large output bearing
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
