The Whispah Linear Slide is designed to utilize the
properties of LM76's Minute Man Linear Bearings
series such as: low friction, high load capacity, speed of 400 SFM, shock absorption,
self lubrication, zero absorption, low friction (0.09 to 0.12 C of F) and noiseless.
The light weight Whispah Linear Slide is
available in two sizes. The WSP 1 Twin Rail System features a 4.00 x 5.50 inch
wide table with a bearing centerline to centerline measurement of 2.125 inches.
For greater load and higher stability the WSP 2 Twin Rail System features a
6.00 x 7.00 inch wide table and a bearing centerline to centerline of 2.906.
The low profile Whispah 1 Linear slide can handles vertical loads
(Co-ax) to 150 lbs and side loads (Co-rad) to 75 lbs. Whispah2 Linear slide can handles
vertical loads (Co-ax) to 225 lbs and side loads (Co-rad) to 125 lbs. Both Whispah Linear slides are available in
lengths to 120 inches. The precision aluminum two rail extrusion has a hardcoat
finish and each rail is hollow to allow for a water or air line and wiring.
Predrilled mounting holes are for integration into new or existing systems.
There is room to mount a pneumatic cylinder or electro-mechanical linear
actuator to operate the slide.
The two rail Whispah Linear Slide is useful for linear
motion applications that must be non-contaminating to its environment such as
medical equipment, pharmaceutical manufacturing systems and food processing
equipment, or operate in harsh environments such as ceramic tile wet saws,
welding systems, caustic wash downs and outdoor/all-weather applications.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
