  • Ergonomic Torque Arm Prevents Assembly Injuries
    A poorly designed and functioning assembly worksite leads to potential employee injuries and additional expenses can incur.
  • Torque Wrench Extension Calculator
    When you put an extension on a torque wrench, like a crow foot or a dog bone, the torque applied to the fastener increases, since the lever arm increases. Use the calculator below to find what value you should set into the wrench to achieve the required fastener torque You must have Java enabled
  • Torque Telemetry Goes Digital
    that deform in a predictable and repeatable manner with the application of torque. Strain gages mounted on the structure in a four-arm Wheatstone-bridge configuration translate the degree of deformation into a voltage signal. Of course, the torque sensor still
  • Torque motors do the trick
    . The large diameter helps the motor develop high torque levels. It gives the motor a large lever arm to generate high levels of torque. The large diameter also provides ample room along the circumference for powerful rare-earth magnets. As an extreme example, a torque motor for a telescope drive has
  • Torque Sensor Application - Prosthetic Limbs
    Sensors and transducers have been very instrumental in the development of prosthetic devices. They allow prosthetic devices to closely mimic human limbs. In the example below, a smart/digital torque transducer in line with a stepper motor is providing torque & position feedback to an electronic
  • Force/torque sensors help industrial robots make the right moves
    Knowing what load levels robots exert is key to more repeatable, safer operation. Feedback from force/torque sensors (black cylinder mounted on arm end) gives robots the delicate touch needed for operations such as this camera function test. An industrial PC controls the robot and documents test
  • 2003 Lincoln Navigator
    suspension, echoing that found on its cousin, theFord Expedition, uses cast-aluminum upper and lower-control arms, and a stabilizer bar with grippybushings. A rubber-isolated torque arm links the differential to the frame. The axle halfshafts passthrough elliptical portholes
  • The Basics of Electromagnetic Clutches and Brakes
    to 1.0 sec until the input and output speeds are the same. The matching of speeds is sometimes called 100% lockup. Brakes lack a rotor, so magnetic flux acts directly between the armature and field. The field usually bolts to the machine frame or on a torque arm that handles brake torque. When
