Eric Emin Wood for IT World Canada:  Manufacturing companies with visions of incorporating the latest automated, cloud-based, analytical tech into their production process need to recognize the value of a measured approach, an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) veteran says. Martin Stephenson, vice president of process automation for OEM Schneider Electric Canada, which specializes in power management, building management, datacentres, and process and automation control, says that while some firms are equipped to embrace the change right away, others might find that implementing what he calls “Industry 4.0” isn’t a good fit for them at all. “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should,” he says. “Customers need to have a truthful conversation with themselves and say, ‘How do we manage what we do now?

Limit Lost Motion with Gam's SPH Flange Planetary Gearbox

Backlash and Torsional Rigidity are both important values to consider when selecting a high precision gearbox as they both affect lost motion (arcmin). GAM's SPH Flange Gearbox has a single piece steel housing and ring gear machined directly inside for maximum stiffness. The helical gears are precision cut and ground for extremely quiet and smooth torque transmission with a standard backlash rating of < 3 arcmin or < 1 arcmin reduced.
