Can manufacturing equipment relies on unique fasteners for critical joints ‘Companies will spend a ton of money bulletproofing major components yet neglect the fasteners. It’s insane when you think about it.
The Spiralock fastener thread ensures uniform load sharing, which minimizes the chance of stripping the threads on the stud, even if the nuts are inadvertently overtorqued upon installation or reinstallation.
A line of fasteners is designed for use in thin stainless steel sheets and are well suited for demanding attachment applications.
QuikGel self-sealing polyurethane liner is designed to reduce downtime from flat tires by protecting against small punctures up to 1/4 in. in diameter.
SKF inch series precision ground ball screws are designed to offer durability and high performance in linear-actuation applications, including factory and lab automation, robotics, and material handling.
The vibration-resistant Blue Torq-Patch reusable self-locking element can be applied to almost any type of hex nut and allows engineers to use shorter bolts to make assemblies lighter.
The AMIS-52100 single-chip wireless transceiver is the latest member of the line of low data rate ASTRIC (Application Specific Transmit and Receive IC) product family.
The compact and scalable Matrix Clip System heat sink can be expanded as desired to accommodate as many devices as needed. It can be universally mounted on PC or wiring boards with no need to change the airflow direction.
By Robert Little The success of most automated deburring operations is dependent on the flexibility and consistency of the deburring tool. Problematical burrs, residual material on parting lines, and flashing on die-cast parts must be removed for operational, safety, and aesthetic reasons.
With the introduction of Flexburr, a new flexible deburring tool, many manufacturers are turning to automated deburring operations.
By Len Vermillion, Managing Editor This month’s Q&A takes a look at a collaborative project between four companies Ricardo UK, Ford Motor Co., Valeo SA, and Gates Corp. to design a micro-hybrid delivery vehicle.
The HyTrans research is based on the existing T280 Diesel Ford Transit. Testing has shown that the micro-hybrid HyTrans vehicle consumes even less fuel than it spawn.
Three single-output families of dc/dc converters are suitable for mobile applications requiring higher power and stable dc power from vehicular or battery power sources.
The HMT25 is a multi-turn absolute encoder with electronic reset capability. Unlike manual resets (buttons or switches) an electronic reset can use system software for initialization. This greatly improves machine set-up time, especially in systems with space constraints.
