Oldham couplings for actuator driven systems

Oldham couplings for actuator driven systems
Ruland Manufacturing presents Oldham couplings for actuator driven systems. The Oldham couplings are zero-backlash, have a balanced design, and high parallel misalignment capabilities, making them a suitable fit for screw driven actuator applications. The three-piece design allows designers to easily couple an actuator and motor that have keyed or keyless shafts with inch or metric bores.

Proximity measuring system offers speed allied with precision

Proximity measuring system offers speed allied with precision
Manufacturing and design industries require increasing precision of measurement, and selecting the right non-contact proximity measuring system can be essential to a successful project that stays on time and on budget, writes Kevin Conlin of Kaman Precision Products. Using a measuring system that is non-contact and employs eddy current sensors allows for high-accuracy proximity measurement even in rugged surroundings.

Going with the flow in pneumatic conveying systems

Going with the flow in pneumatic conveying systems
Pneumatic conveying brings a number of advantages, for many industries, not forgetting the lack of moving parts and system flexibility. However, it is essential that such systems are properly controlled in order to maintain efficiency and the quality of the product in transit. Delivering effective process control systems requires an understanding of both the technology and the industry itself.

Delivering on the requirement for control panels

Delivering on the requirement for control panels
Requiring considerable experience and expertise, designing and building process control panels is not as straight forward as you may think, especially when they are destined for hazardous areas. These potentially explosive atmospheres, or zoned areas, are more common than you’d think, with applications spread across a number of industries from obvious ones like oil and gas to less well recognised areas such as food and drink or rail.
