Mechanical power transmission calls for flexibility, smooth process, and high speed. These demands are even higher when used on today's robot-rich factory floor. In this webinar, we will explore power transmission and motion control in manufacturing, including technologies ranging from motors and drives to gears and sensors.
More than any time in its 125-year history, the auto industry is trying to lose weight. To accomplish that, it's applying new materials to components ranging from hoods and engine covers to brake rotors and body panels. Sandy Munro of Munro & Associates will examine the growing trend toward the use of plastics and carbon fiber composites inside and outside the vehicle.
Robotics and mechanization have improved by leaps and bounds over the past decade. That said, grasping objects with suitable pressure, the art of clean movement, touching and feeling the shape or texture of something and other actions are not yet a given. Artificially reproducing them is a challenge modern engineers are attempting to overcome, and this webinar explores how.
Learn the basics of using adhesives and tapes for a variety of durable assembly applications. Discover the advantages of the various technology options and a brief framework to help you downselect to an appropriate tape or adhesive technology that will be the best fit for your product and process.
Motors and drives in automated machinery can be exposed to water; dripping water; sprayed water; hot water; steamed water; submerged in water and deep underwater. What do you need to know to protect your motors and drives from different water threats? This webinar will explore the various categories of water threats to motors and drives. Interesting examples will be presented to illustrate the challenges and how the customers and suppliers found solutions.
Understand the essential functions of equipment enclosures and know whether a modular or unibody construction would work best for your facility’s specific needs.
While designing for industrial-grade 3D printing has fewer considerations than traditional manufacturing processes, elements such as resolution, surface finish, feature size and build orientation can impact part performance. By weighing important design techniques, process requirements and materials, stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS) can be leveraged for both cosmetically appealing and functional 3D-printed prototypes and components.
