Part Gripper

The EGP 25 electric small part gripper from SCHUNK (Morrisville, NC) weighs 110 g and has a stroke of 3 mm per finger. The gripping force can be adjusted on two stages, and maximum gripping force is 40 N. The gripper can handle workpieces up to 200 g, and closing time amounts to 0.09 s. The maintenance-free servomotors are brushless and equipped with cross roller guidance. The mechatronic gripper is based on the platform of the pneumatic MPG-plus small part gripper. Users can transfer the sensor system of the MPG-plus onto the EGP, and existing systems can be changed from pneumatic to electronic. The MPG-plus and the EGP can be mounted from the side or the bottom. The gripper housing is made of high-performance aluminum. It complies with protection class IP30, and is suitable for various applications in small part handling and assembly. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55590-307

Hydraulic Motors

Dayton Lamina™ (Dayton, OH) offers low-speed/high-torque, high-speed/low-torque hydraulic motors that feature instant forward and reverse. Six motors are available with a torque range from 0 to 656 in-lbs. and speeds from 0 to 2255 RPM. Four flange options allow easy assembly to other production equipment. The motors include a bronze-plated bearing surface, positive metal-to-metal sealing, a positive splined drive, and a matched gear rotor. With three moving parts, they are suitable for applications including conveyor drives, hose reel extraction, fan drives, pipe valve openers, thread core removal for plastic injection molding, undersea tool manipulators, camera manipulators, and EDM machines. The motors include a main shaft that can be readily adapted by use of a chuck or collet to hold tools for rotary machinery operations such as drilling, boring, reaming, and other tasks. They perform with flow rates from 1 to 8 GPM to deliver from 100 to 1500 PSI. Parallel circuits are suggested to keep back pressure below 300 PSI.

Rotary Vane Pumps

Kurt J. Lesker (Jefferson Hills, PA) offers KJLC RV Series rotary vane pumps that feature an anti-suckback mechanism to prevent oil from back-flowing in the event of accidental shutdown, power failure, etc. A pressurized oil circuit assures constant lubrication regardless of the inlet pressure. A gas ballast valve helps reduce the amount of condensate that forms in the pump. Applications include research and development; backing for boosters, diffusion, and turbo pumps; freeze-drying; vacuum coating; gas handling; vacuum drying and degassing; HVAC servicing and manufacturing; and leak detection.

Linear Stage

Bell-Everman (Goleta, CA) offers the SLS Light sealed linear stage that keeps contamination such as manufacturing debris, particulate, or liquid contaminants outside of the stage housing. The stage measures 80 × 120 mm, and has maximum dynamic payloads of 15 kg for the direct drive linear motor version, and 30 kg for the ball screw version. Both sizes deliver a proprietary linear lip seal design that integrates with the stage’s anodized aluminum housing. The seal is made from a ruggedized polyurethane elastomer and resists chemicals, temperature extremes, and mechanical wear. The seal can be quickly replaced without disassembling the stage or removing payload. Applications include anywhere that contaminants can threaten the operation of a linear actuator, including laser machining, welding, semiconductor, and machining.

Flow Controller

PISCO USA (Elmhurst, IL) offers a flow controller that features a built-in shock absorber function. It uses a 2-stage speed control to regulate exhaust speed and absorb shock in pneumatic cylinders. The units have three needles to adjust the initial speed of the cylinder (first stage), speed of the brake (second stage), and timing of the speed shift. The second-stage speed provides a cushion and reduces the speed at the end of the stroke. This speed reduction lessens shock by up to 1/9 while retaining the same cycle time. The flow controller is available in 4-, 6-, and 8-mm metric sizes, and 5/32, ¼, and 5/16 inch sizes. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/55590-312

Shock Sensors

PCB Piezotronics (Depew, NY) introduced the Model 350B01 mechanically isolated, electrically filtered, nearfield or farfield pyroshock sensor capable of measuring up to 100,000 g. The sensor measures High-G shock and harsh pyroshock events such as metal-to-metal impact, explosive bolts, impact tools, and stage separation testing. Mechanical isolation aids in removing frequency content outside the useful bandwidth of 20 kHz, and minimizes zero-shift associated with non-isolated accelerometers. Electrical filtering reduces signal ringing and clipping. The sensors are hermetically sealed and case isolated for use in electrically noisy environments.
