Ball Bearing Mounts

Asymmetric Fasteners, Inc. (Hackettstown, NJ) released the Torksleeve B mounting for ball bearings, compatible with roller, needle, linear, or plain bearing types. The unit provides quick assembly time, is compact, and lightweight. The unit also rebuilds in the field, and mounts to metal or plastic walls. The asymmetric thread design self-locks and is resistant to vibration. Tightening of the nuts causes the slotted sleeve to contract, gripping the bearing and clamping the unit to the frame.

Technologies of the Week

“Micro-needles” have been disclosed that are characterized by their sharpness and side holes that prevent the coring phenomenon seen in standard needles. The needles can be several hundreds of microns in length and avoid most pain receptors in the skin. The sharpness ensures minimal damage to the skin. Click here to view this technology.

Product of the Month

The OP280 series of infrared emitters and the OP580 series of matching silicon photo sensors from OPTEK Technology (Carrollton, TX) were named PTB Product of the Month for January. The OP280 emitter series consists of three standard devices: the OP180 940-nm infrared emitter, the OP280 880-nm infrared emitter, and the OP280K 890-nm infrared emitter; and the OP280PS 850-nm point source infrared emitter and the OP280V 850-nm vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) device. The OP580 series of sensors consists of the OP580 phototransistor, the OP580PR silicon photodarlington, and the OP580RB silicon phototransistor with an integrated base-emitter resistor.
