Designing Drives for a Competitive Edge: How Field Retrofits Can Point the Way to Drive Designs That Better Satisfy CustomersSeptember 1, 2011 1:16 pm | by Gates Corporation
Field redesigns point the way to next-generation machines. This paper includes case studies showing how conversions from roller chain or gears to synchronous belt drives helped improve performance while saving maintenance and replacement costs.
This article features several excerpts from Form 483s involving environmental. Observations range from failure to properly validate containers to a lack of temperature records in an aseptic processing area. After the excerpts, we describe systems that can provide the necessary elements of compliance and outline 10 best practices for formulating an effective 483 response.
HEIDENHAIN’s machine tool components – CNC controls, touch probe systems and high-resolution encoders – use energy efficiently and help reduce waste
HEIDENHAIN’s ERM 2400 compact encoders meet high signal quality, shaft speed and contamination tolerance requirements for direct drives on spindles.
The compact, small footprint positioning stage for closed loop voice coils can be ideal for closed loop positioning applications with a short stroke where intricate position, velocity, and acceleration control is necessary. A low moving mass allows for high accelerations of light payloads.
Understanding all the costs in pneumatic and electric actuators, and recognizing their very different capabilities, can save tens of thousands of dollars
Critical environment administrators must monitor indoor environments and collect data reliably in order to ensure materials are stored properly and compliance is maintained. This can prove challenging depending on the type of monitoring system currently in place. This white paper identifies many of the challenges faced by environment administrators on a daily basis and how a wireless environmental monitoring system can help to maintain data integrity and meet all compliance requirements.
HEIDENHAIN’s linear encoders with optical scanning increase the accuracy, speed stability and thermal behavior required by fast, precise direct drives.
HEIDENHAIN’s LIF 481 1Dplus linear encoder provides high resolution for positioning to the nanometer for the semiconductor industry.
HEIDENHAIN’s compact absolute length gauges for shop-floor measurement combine the benefits of incremental optical devices and absolute measured value acquisition.
How can product development teams regain control of the process and actually cut costs? Here are 10 areas on which to focus.
There is tremendous pressure on companies today to maintain output and quality while holding the line on, or reducing, operating costs. Cleaning tanks and reactors with high-pressure water jets, instead of sending personnel into confined spaces, is a proven way to assure productivity, safety, environmental responsibility, cost, and versatility personnel.
