  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 2001 Saab 9-3 SE convertible
    system adjusts braking and throttle to help give the wheels a firm grip on the road during bad weather. Unfortunately, the weather during the test-drive week was beautiful, so I didn't get to experience the system firsthand. Conversely, the beautiful weather gave me plenty of opportunities to drop
  • Putting The Right Spin On Rotational-Molding Designs
    fuel tank a heavy-duty handle which provides good load control and a secure grip. Made by Tempo Products, Cleveland, the tanks have a 29-gallon capacity and are color coded for different fuel. Football enthusiasts now sit on rotationally molded bench seats. Designed by Dant Clayton Corp., Louisville
  • Medical Device Link .
    soft-touch elastomer material over a rigid plastic gives a device a pleasant feel for doctors or patients who handle it. More important, an elastomer outer layer also makes it easier to grip and hold on to a device covered with blood or some other fluid, notes Jim MacDonald, new business development
