Motion Control – The Engineering Edge – Application – Whisper Slides for Harvesting Honey

Sometimes, an application leads you to an immediate, off-the-shelf solution – like this one. Harvesting bee honey is a seasonal opportunity and these systems are hauled across the country to make it happen. They need to be all weather, tough and maintenance-free. The next time you take some honey and put it in your tea, […]

Motion Control Application – Intelligent robot systems are increasingly being used in disaster control, rescue missions and salvage operations!

After the severe earthquake in Japan and the subsequent nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Quince managed to reach the upper floors of the ruins of the power plant. There it measured the radioactivity levels and sent HD images to the world outside. Wherever it is too dangerous for humans. Robots that can look for survivors after […]

Motion Control Application – Please smile with maxon motors!

Motion Control Application – Digital SLR cameras can deliver extremely sharp photos – regardless of whether the photographer is a professional or a hobbyist. Not only does the skill of the photographer, but also the technology inside the camera play a key role. maxon drive systems help to create lightning-fast images.   Fall River, MA […]

The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our ceramic coated/supported shafting and our special, designed for this particular […]

Motion Control – The Engineering Edge – Trunnion Grinding Slide for Oil Field

  We are shipping another slide today for the oil patch. When Weir Oil and Gas called with a slide application that required special engineering, LM76 was all ears – as it was right up our alley. This slide is a Trunnion Grinding Slide which has a 56HP motor running at 3500 RPM mounted to […]

Motion Control – Voice Coil Linear Actuator from H2W Tech used in Telerobotic Surgery!

H2W’s voice coil (NCC04-10-005-1A) was recently utilized as a vibration actuator in a high-frequency acceleration application for telerobotic surgery. VerroTouch: Tactile Feedback for Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery. Problem: Quoting the article “Though the robotic tools mimic one’s hand motions, surgeons quickly notice they cannot feel what the tools are touching, a striking contrast to non-robotic […]

Motion Control Application- A wasp shows the way!

What do wasps have to do with brain surgery?  At first glance, not a whole lot. However, one species serves as the model for an innovative brain surgery needle that is being developed by a team of researchers from England. Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – In tumor treatment, neurosurgeons today use […]
