Industrial Safety – Is Your Workplace Safe? Use the Free Gotcha Stick to be SURE!

Industrial Safety – Get a Free Gotcha Stick!

Industrial Safety — Omron introduces the safety Gotcha Stick Safe Distance Scale. This safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.

Although not officially adopted by OSHA, the safety “Gotcha Stick” is based on data from “A Review of Machine-Guarding Recommendations,” by Donald R. Vaillancourt and Stover H. Snook of the Liberty Mutual Research Center for Health & Safety. This data redefines the dimensions of the human arm for the purposes of machine guarding. The resulting new stick has been modified to include openings of less than 1/4 inch over the first 1/2 inch distance.

industrial safety gotcha stick

Guarding machinery by means of hard (fixed) barriers is one of the main ways of protecting personnel from point-of-operation hazards. The safety “Gotcha Stick” is the easiest means of verifying that openings in hard guarding will not allow the point-of-operation to be accessed by the operator.

Omron’s safety products are used to protect workers around machinery, automated equipment and industrial robots. Their products serve a wide variety of applications and markets, including semiconductor, automotive, electronics manufacturing, packaging and consumer markets.

Motion Control – The first e-road bikes and e-MTBs with the lightweight maxon BIKEDRIVE AIR have arrived!

Motion Control – e-road bikes and e-MTBs!

Italian premium road bike manufacturer, Cipollini and Swiss bike manufacturer, TRANSALPES launch their new lightweight e-bikes with the maxon BIKEDRIVE AIR

motion control - application


motion control - maxon motorsTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – The Cipollini Flusso is a performance e-road bike that weighs only 10.7 kg. With a weight of less than 16 kg, the TRANSALPES E1 sets standards in the electrified trail and enduro segment. Both e-bikes put a natural feel at the center of the riding experience.

There is an emerging trend in the e-bike market towards lightweight systems that are almost indistinguishable from standard bicycles. This development is supported by smaller, more powerful motors and improved battery technologies. “Integration is the key word,” says Michele Tittonel, R&D Coordinator at Cipollini. “The second generation of e-race bikes will be powered by electric motors fully integrated into the bike design and complemented with high-end components.”

Cipollini set out to develop one of the lightest e-race bikes in the world without compromising reliability and duration of assistance. Now the Italian bike manufacturer is introducing the new Flusso, which weighs just 10.7 kg

The Cipollini Flusso is equipped with maxon’s BIKEDRIVE Air system, which weighs just 3.5 kilograms including the battery. At its heart is a mid-mounted motor that delivers 30 Nm of torque. Thanks to a special free-wheel technology it’s easy to pedal even without electric assistance. Michele Tittonel says, “The natural feeling of riding is absolutely crucial; after all, physical effort should remain part of the experience.”

motion control - maxon application

Integration of the drive is also a top priority for the Swiss bike manufacturer TRANSALPES. “With the BIKEDRIVE AIR system from maxon, we want to build perhaps the lightest e-bike for demanding mountain bikers,” as co-owner Michel Juhasz explains. “The new TRANSALPES E1 rides as naturally as a mountain bike without a motor.” TRANSALPES’ lightest e-bike, with a carbon frame, weighs less than 16 kg.

The Cipollini e-road bikes and TRANSALPES e-MTBs can be configured and pre-ordered on the manufacturers’ websites.

Motion Control – Planetary Gearbox
motion control - planetary gearbox

Motion Control Components – The SPH inline planetary gearbox available from Electromate is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges! 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — It is available in six frame sizes with nominal torque ratings from 15 to up to 900Nm. The SPH features precision cut helical gears that are ground for smoothness, quiet operation, and high accuracies.

The face width of the SPH gears are up to 70% longer than the gears in comparable gearboxes on the market, which means more tooth contact and greater overall torque density. To carry the higher torques, SPH gears are case hardened which imparts strength deeper into the gear compared to nitriding which hardens just the surface. With several output configurations available, machine integration is simplified.
