  • Belt & Chain Drives
    alignment, idler usage, and belt pull and bearing
  • Measuring Length and Rate Using Quadrature for an Oil Drilling Operation
    of the platform to pull in the anchor chains under computer control. There is a high degree of vibration as the anchor chains move, and chain movement may be in both directions depending on the position of the platform relative to the desired end position, prevailing winds, and roughness of the sea. High
  • From the Safety Files: Poor dock leveler maintenance leads to injury
    tension built up until the lip jumped loose and pinched the worker's hand. The dockleveler's designers intended that it be operated from inside the dock. A worker pulls a chain at the inside end of the ramp to release a spring that elevates the ramp to its full height. Once the ramp reaches the top
  • Easier circuit-board assembly
    on a plastic chain assembly driven by a dc motor. Crown Simplimatic engineers, however, designed the CIMTRAK with a gravity-feed platform that has fewer moving parts and no motor. The platform is tilted less than 2*, just enough to take advantage of gravity's pull. One hundred free-spinning rollers sit
  • AstraZeneca s Culture of Empowerment
    (CI) teams. Two years ago, at Westborough, Mass., cross-functional CI teams involving QA, engineering and operations applied DMAIC principles to solve a major capacity crunch for a key product. Even though Pull Manufacturing had not yet been implemented at the site, the teams uncovered wasteful
  • RFID Integration: Trying to Connect
    to accommodate RFID. Smart firms will want to streamline business processes as well to get the most out of the new technology, adapting the way they package, ship, track, and manage their products throughout the supply chain. Inserting a new technology into the already complex mix of technologies that make up
