Model FEB spring set electric brakes are engineered for the particular demands of aerospace, robotics, manufacturing, medical, and military applications. The Model FEB's composite multiple friction surfaces are designed to offer the highest torque in the smallest space.
Explorer angular contact ball bearings have been designed to enable pump designers and manufacturers to add value to their products by increasing service life and reducing warranty claims. In fact, they are specifically engineered to withstand the toughest operating conditions.
By Len Vermillion, Managing EditorBill Seiler, an electrical engineer in Santa Cruz, CA, spends his time focusing on designing imaging equipment. But, when Product Design and Development announced its Build A Bot Contest last fall, Seiler temporarily turned into a designer of fighting robots.
The latest addition to the Accu-Coder line of absolute encoders is the Model 960 Thru-Bore. Along with its mate, the Model 926, it is designed for user-friendliness.
RHS15 Series incremental optical encoders feature modular technology and have an integral bearing system that accommodates large axial and radial shaft movement. They come in a small, lightweight package and are compatible with various outputs and resolutions up to 1,250 cycles per revolution.
Complex metal-formed components can be produced for applications requiring fast startup, accuracy, and controlled costs. This inlet cowl for a large jet engine is a typical example. It is manufactured using hydroforming, a triple-acting hydraulic press, and multi-axis laser machining.
EVP Series valves boast long life, low power, rugged design, and fast response. They provide control of air or gas flow and vary the output flow based on the current input to the solenoid. Consistent gain provides a high degree of control. Clippard Instrument Laboratory Inc., 7390 Colerain Ave.
SolidWorks 2004 accelerates large assembly processing and automates hundreds of tedious tasks. For instance, it allows users to generate a BOM for an entire project in a single operation.
A new range of EPIC pin and sleeve connectors includes Multimax (shown) and Ulysse devices.
Today's metal dome arrays deliver significant benefits for engineers designing next-generation equipment.
Since 1939, Pilatus, a Swiss aircraft manufacturer Switzerland, has been designing and engineering a versatile, multipurpose aircraft called the PC-12.
When creating its award-winning Morph2 Rollerball pen, A.T Cross relied on Celcon acetal copolymer (polyoxymethylene, POM) and Celanex thermoplastic polyester (PBT) over acetal homopolymer in four of the pen's most dynamic parts.
The bagged salad industry is governed by top-secret methods that employ cutting-edge technologies and the latest processing methods. Here's a look at the complicated union between engineering and lettuce.
When a manufacturer of spectrophotometers experienced a fluid transfer problem in the flow cells of one of its instruments, it went in search of a solution that would fit its specific needs.
Inert Pure-Chem solenoid-operated valves employ fluid handling technology developed for high-purity medical applications. The valves meet the processing needs for the handling and dispensing of high-purity, aggressive, and corrosive liquids.
