Motion Control

Load Carrier

Amacoil (Aston, PA) has introduced a linear bearing slide load carrier to enhance the load carrying efficiency of Uhing traverse drives and to prevent them from slipping. The load carrier protects the rolling ring bearings from undue wear by assuring that weight and radial forces are not transmitted to the shaft-bearing interface. Supported by end supports and guide rails, and riding on linear bearings, the load carrier accepts the full force of any payload attached to the Uhing traverse. Two yokes extend down from the load carrier. The traverse pushes against the yokes to move the load linearly. The yokes are not screwed or bolted to the traverse, so no forces are placed on the traverse other than the lateral resistance to movement of the load carrier.

Pump Vanes/Rotors/End Plates

Metallized Carbon Corp. (Ossining NY) offers custom vanes, rotors, and end plates for use in rotary vane pumps pumping both liquids and gases. The carbongraphite components provide lubrication in most environments, and are suited for pumping liquids with poor lubricating qualities, strong chemicals that attack metals, and to pump air, vacuum, combustion products, and gasoline vapors. The materials are chemically resistant, and are compatible with FDA food and beverage regulations. They have a low wear rate running in both gas atmospheres and low-viscosity liquids.

Rotating Machinery Analysis

Microstar Laboratories (Bellevue, WA) has announced the release of the Rotating Machinery Analysis module with software tools to facilitate mixed time measurements and rotation measurements of rotating machinery. The software enables time-based sampling or encoder-based sampling, or both at the same time. The module processes data captured by a fixed-rate, high-resolution sampling clock with software processing operating at continuously varying rates aligned to pulses from the encoder device. The processing uses DSP technology based on classical sampling theory.
