  • Pulse Tool Selection Best Practice: Focus on Ergonomics, Productivity and Low Maintenance Cost
    A Pulse tool has the speed of an impact wrench with nearly the repeatability of a clutch based shut-off tool. Containing precision-machined parts the pulse unit is a sealed chamber that is filled with a formulated hydraulic fluid. Pulse blades with a custom designed precision roller push the fluid
  • Speed Reducers and Gear Trains
    of this ratio can be adjusted in some arrangements (usually with a friction or hydraulic drive and/or clutch arrangement), while in others the ratio is not adjustable. In order, therefore, to design or select a gear train or speed reducer, one of the first tasks Is the determination of the angular
  • Clutches
    are required. Hydraulic or fluid couplings are used in place of mechanical clutches where exceptionally smooth engagement is required or where it is desired to have the clutch automatically pick up a load with an increase in input speed. They are also used where constant engagement and disengagement
  • Electric actuators push hydraulics out of off-highway equipment
    and spills, and, most significantly, reduce installation and maintenance costs with simpler systems. One way to accomplish all three is to replace hydraulic systems with electric actuators. There are still situations that demand hydraulics, such as when loads exceed 2,000 lb or when moving loads
  • 2003 BMW Z4 3.0i
    paddles on the steering wheel. However, no matter how high-falutin' the system, nothing beats clutching and shifting. Perhaps one contributor to the car's smooth handling is its electric power steering. The Z4 is touted as the first BMW to have electric rather than hydraulic power steering. Steering
  • Ultralight servohydraulics for Formula 1
    applications such as shifting gears and actuating clutches. Over the past two decades, F1 cars have incorporated sophisticated hydraulic systems to handle a range of applications, including ABS and power-assisted braking; clutch, gearbox, and throttle actuation; and controlling engine air inlets
  • Testing transmission components in the real world
    but provides little or no information on parameters such as torque, hydraulic pressure, and temperature. In current practice there are two basic methods of testing critical automatic transmission components. The first involves running full vehicle tests on a dynamometer or proving ground
  • 2007 BMW 650i Coupe
    begged me to take her for a spin. But then I thought, "Why waste good driving time? " Comfort Access lets you start the engine without having to remove the fob from your pocket. Simply engage the clutch and press the Start button. Very James Bond. The trunk is large (13 cu ft) and the lid opens all
