  • Getting a (Gentle) Grip
    brittle graphite electrodes for blast furnaces. They're also beating corrosion in paper-making and handling machines and accurately positioning aerospace parts during adhesive bonding and riveting. And in many observatories, bladder clamps handle the delicate job of shuttling giant -- not to mention
  • Friction Cups, or Suction Cups with Gripping Patterns, Can Handle Higher Speeds, Quicker Stops, and Oily Parts
    Getting a grip with suction cups Recent improvements to suction-cup designs have made them even more capable, especially for fast-operating machines that handle slippery parts. Companies in the highly automated metal-fabricating industries are going through tough times, making efficient production
  • Switches and the NEC
    any point on adjacent devices mounted in the same box. It dictates use of an isolating barrier in this case. The Code addresses switch accessibility as well. This part pertains mostly to circuit breakers and breakers used as switches. The center of the operating handle grip at its highest position
  • Rolls of Banding
    Problem: End-effector must handle large variations in roll diameters. The roll cannot withstand excessive grip force. The unit would need to handle over 5,000 in-lbs of off-center moment loading. Application: Picking up the outside of rolls from a mandrel and transferring them to a pallet. Rolls
  • Molds
    , 500 lbs. tooling & payload capacity, 55" of vertical lift and 360 degrees main post rotation. *?Operators Controls; Twist metering control, pushbutton grip/release, push-button rotate cw/ccw, emergency kill button, adjustable height T-bar and a steering assist handle. *?Horizontal axis rotation
  • Abrasive Paper
    to horizontal beneath a hoist. Restrictions: * Low over-head clearance. * Simple part rotation. * Handling a wide variety of parts. * Quick change of grip range safety. * Need to handle larger parts in future prevent damage to the parts. Solution: Large slide gripper tool was designed with dual
  • Air spring key to robot handler
    Custom actuators, pneumatic clamps, and seal software are among the topics covered in the pneumatics reference guide. A robotic arm developed by Luzenac America relies on air springs to grip and handle bags of talc. Designing a robotic arm to handle 50-lb packages of talc powder was an engineer's
  • DSPs go heavy duty
    simultaneously adjusts engine power, transmission gearing, hydraulic power transfer, vehicle motion and direction, and claw angle position and grip. Once thought suitable only for high-speed number crunching and telecommunications work, DSPs like this one from Texas Instruments now handle areas once
