Simulation and Compensation of Motion: Hexapods for Dynamic Applications

Simulation and Compensation of Motion: Hexapods for Dynamic Applications
Small motion often has a great effect. Just a light shaking of the hand results in blurred, "fuzzy" photographs; unwanted motion due to guiding errors, machining processes etc. can interfere with precision machines during production to such an extent that the result becomes unusable. The constantly increasing requirements on quality and performance of the product make it necessary to avoid these types of problems. The simulation of motion and its compensation are therefore important tools. For this reason, dynamic Hexapods play an important role in positioning systems.

Distributed Servo Technology Bends Panels Into Better Shape

Distributed Servo Technology Bends Panels Into Better Shape
Making a departure from traditional drive architectures in its new P2lean generation of machines, Salvagnini the world's leading manufacturer of panel bending machines is using distributed servo amplifiers for positioning, instead of keeping drives installed centrally in the control cabinet. And with this solution, the new Kollmorgen AKD-D series generates cost savings throughout the whole value chain.

MiniTec launches new mini-sized framing profile and matching component range - for smaller machines and structures

MiniTec launches new mini-sized framing profile and matching component range - for smaller machines and structures
MiniTec has launched its new Profile Series 30 range of aluminium profiles with matching modular elements and fittings based on a nominal sectional size of 30 x 30 mm that will suit smaller machine frames, consoles, panels, fixtures, and safety guards. Other application areas targeted are lightweight structural frames for equipment used in the food and medical industries where strict hygiene standards are important, and for organising component or tool storage in confined areas such as vehicle fit-outs. The new range also lowers the cost base for light-duty machine applications.

New NH and NS series linear guides from NSK offer 30% higher dynamic load rating

New NH and NS series linear guides from NSK offer 30% higher dynamic load rating
The demands that industry places on linear guides are becoming higher: they must be suitable for very fast applications, offer increased operational lifetime and cope with higher loads. The new precision UK manufactured NH and NS series linear guides from NSK satisfy all of these criteria, thereby enabling machine builders to either increase the performance of their products or to downsize.

Elesa’s New Lobe And Diamond Cut Knurled Knobs Enhance Precision Of Position Indicators

Elesa’s New Lobe And Diamond Cut Knurled Knobs Enhance Precision Of Position Indicators
These new more modern designs of indicator housings come from stylish component company Elesa in the form of a 5 lobe housing and a round diamond cut version. Each offers a slightly different operator feel where lobes may be appropriate for heavier torque and the diamond knurling where a lighter precise touch is called for.
