Industry looks to independent distributors to address chronic shortages in the availability of electronic components.
An argument can be made for the flexible shaft being one of the backbones of the aerospace industry, and it isn't difficult to see why. From windshield wipers to TRAS systems to jet afterburners, flexible shafts are there ...
The useful life of a machine should not be dictated by the availability of a single part and this is now no longer the case with the application of 3D printing. The rise of the circular economy has led to a new way to fix things.
A vibration isolator functions as a harmonic oscillator. The wire rope acts as a damping element to dissipate vibrational energy. While it is not possible to eliminate vibrations entirely, an isolator diminishes transmissibility to a large extent.
Preventative maintenance can have far-reaching effects, so take the necessary steps. Don't let something as small as a hydraulic hose failure cost your factory a sizable sum.

Bellows are most often used to protect critical components. Actuators used in motion control equipment are often exposed to contaminants ranging from dust and abrasive grit to metal chips and weld spatter.
In order to service the four lanes, a stroke in excess of 40 inches was required and the lane changer needed to index on average every 10 seconds or less while maximizing time available for product flow.
Recently Stäubli introduced two compact fully automatic tool change systems, the MPS 130 and the MPS 260, for the medium payload segment, Stäubli Connectors rounds off the lower end of its existing series.
Manufacturers are increasing productivity 10-40% and reducing tooling costs by addressing an often overlooked flaw in toolholder-retention knob design.
Urethane's unique properties and versatility is helping to solve some of the industry's most challenging component design issues.
Manufacturers are increasing productivity 15-20% by addressing a flaw in toolholder-retention knob design that affects precision and increases cycle time.
The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.
Quality of machining and quality control differentiates "standard" toolholders from precision.
Lucas Mearian for ComputerWorld: Boeing will begin using at least four 3D-printed titanium parts to construct its 787 Dreamliner aircraft and may some day rely on as many as 1,000 parts created via additive manufacturing.
