  • Keep it moving with fluid power
    The right fluid-power system eases large material-handling applications. The bottom dog can be seen pushing the log through the machine. The top dog holding the other end of the log is out of sight inside the green housing. The motion-control system in a log cutter uses multiple-motion axes to keep
  • Cable Carriers Smooth Machine Motion
    lines in proper position on moving machinery. This protects them from premature wear and fatigue due to flexing and abrasion. Instead of allowing cables and hoses to twist and kink, they maintain the proper bend radius and impart a more gentle rolling action that feeds lines in and out as a machine
  • A new machine gun for GI Joe
    After 70 years of distinguished service, the U.S. Army is preparing to retire the M2HB .50-caliber machine guns. Replacing the M2 will be the lighter and more accurate XM312 .50 caliber (12.7 mm). , Falls Church, Va., is based on prototypes of the company's XM307, a rapid-fire grenade launcher
  • Short-wave IR imaging invades machine vision
    SWIR imaging brings a new dimension to machine vision, opening the door to a host of new applications. Application engineer Sensors Unlimited Inc. Princeton, N.J. SWIR cameras classify polymers for sorting on recycling line in Europe. Shortwave infrared (SWIR) imaging is quietly earning a growing
  • Plug-and-Play Extra Axis Gets Robots Moving
    , in-line/platform, or side mount. For many of the larger six-axis robots, platform mounting is the most convenient and cost effective. However, the question then becomes, "How can these robots be moved for even better efficiency? " , Ypsilanti, Mich., builds customized robots for machine
  • Moving Perlite in Low Headroom Area with Flexible Screw Conveyor
    A packager contracted to blend and package expanded perlite, delivered in bulk bags too large to be emptied into the packaging equipment. A Flexicon flexible screw conveyor proved the best way to move the perlite mixture to a ceiling-high surge hopper above the packaging machine.
  • Smart Computing Article - Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) to Hollerith machine
    ) standard use analog signal transmission, but HDTV achieves its high quality by transmitting digital signals. The signals are digitized and compressed using the MPEG-2 (Moving Pictures Experts Group 2) file format and compression standard before transmission, and then they are decompressed when they reach
  • Monitor Critical Speed on a Vertical Flocculator with a Switch
    Monitor critical shaft speed of slow moving vertical flocculator with the LRB1000 Speed Switch. Shaft speed slowdown or stoppage can result in machine damage and valuable downtime.
  • Caring for Cables
    What is a cable carrier?. Cable carriers guide and protect cables and hoses on moving machinery. They prevent tangling and damage from debris or contact with the machine itself. Using cable carriers extends the service life of both the cables and the machine. Any application involving moving
