Motor Sizing for Unusual LoadsBy Don Labriola
One of the fun parts of the motion industry is involvement in popular movies! Motor specifications can be a bit rough: "I need to spin a 120-pound actor (and chair) 180 degrees in one-half second. He will be sitting up-right." This was the requirements for rotation portion of the half human, half CGI android bartender in Passengers.
NEW FVA-WORKBENCH 5.6 released – Software for efficient, high-end gearbox simulationThe FVA-Workbench can be used to design precise gearbox systems in seconds. As the only software that converts the results of the latest research into powerful calculation methods, the FVA-Workbench is always on the cutting edge.
With the release of FVA-Workbench 5.6, FVA GmbH has made its high-performance simulation platform an essential tool for efficient gearbox development.
Comparing Disc and Bellows Couplings
For the past 30 years or more, designers of highly dynamic servo drive systems have been turning to bellows couplings to optimize the stiffness, inertia, and smoothness of rotation in their coupling applications. When it comes to torsionally rigid couplings, the stainless steel bellows wins in all three categories. So why use servo disc couplings?
