Smart Function Kit for Handling

A Smart Function Kit for Handling

A Smart Function Kit for Handling from Bosch Rexroth, Charlotte, NC, offers users a mechatronic subsystem for handling tasks that can be used immediately. The kit can be used in a variety of areas, such as production handling, machine assembly, and packaging. Pick-and-place tasks can also be performed quickly and cost-effectively, as a Cartesian multi-axis system for packages of different sizes, weights and formats. In addition to the preassembled multi-axis system, which includes a motor, cable, and all attached parts, a suitable Rexroth ctrlX servo drive and controller is included in the package.

Cord Clip

Interpower has released a new optional cord clip.

Interpower, Oskaloosa, IA, has released a new optional cord clip for all of its U.S.-made 3 × 18 AWG cords and 3 × 18 VCT-F Japanese cords. The new clip is constructed of a glass-reinforced polypropylene compounded resin for molding consistency and retention. The clips are set at an optimal 4.75 in. behind the plug and are molded in gray and black. These cords are ideal for clipping excess cord to prevent tripping and injuries. The material is not hazardous by OSHA Hazardous Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200, and it is not an RCRA hazardous waste compounded resin.

Thermoelectric Coolers

The PowerCycling PCX series is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of thermal cycles.

Thermoelectric coolers from Laird Thermal Systems, Morrisville, NC, provide high reliability for demanding thermal cycling applications such as point-of-care PCR testing.

The PowerCycling PCX series is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of thermal cycles, providing improved performance and long-life operation in PCR testing applications. It offers a robust construction with a flexible thermally conductive soft layer to reduce mechanical stresses in thermal cycling applications.

The series extends the mean time between failure (MTBF) of point-of-care equipment and offers high heat pumping capacities from 13 to 215 W in footprints as small as 15 × 15 mm.

LM Guide Actuator

The Type KR-RL actuator

A linear motion guide actuator from THK, Schaumburg, IL, features a driving element that uses right/left threads and enables symmetrical movements with a single motor. The Type KR-RL actuator integrates an LM guide and a ball screw.

Because the single shaft is capable of simultaneous right and left drive, it reduces complexity by eliminating many components from the design. It is designed to handle loads in all directions (radial, reverse-radial, and horizontal), making it possible to install in any mounting orientation.

Positioning Stage

The XY single rail positioning stage

A low profile XY single rail positioning stage from H2W Technologies, Santa Clarita, CA, uses brushless linear motors to generate a continuous/peak force of 6.2 lbs [27.8 N]/18.7 lbs [83.3 N] (bottom axis), 3.1 lbs [13.8 N]/9.4 lbs [41.8 N] (top axis), with a total stroke length of 4.3 in [109 mm] (bottom axis), 4.3 in [109 mm] (top axis). The top axis is able to directly mount to the moving bottom axis motor, which helps reduce the overall height and moving mass of the system. A non-contact 1.0-µm resolution encoder allows for precise positioning and rigid recirculating ball linear bearing provides for smooth guidance and travel.

Ultrahigh-Speed Cameras

The T3610 and TMX 5010 camera models.

Ametek Vision Research, Wayne, NJ, has introduced two models in its ultrahigh-speed performance line of cameras. Featuring a breakthrough CMOS sensor with back side illumination (BSI), the Phantom ® T3610 and TMX 5010 cameras sustain their image throughput with optimized light sensitivity for high frame rates and sub-microsecond exposures. The T3610 achieves significantly higher frame rates of 38,040 frames per second (fps) at 1280 × 800 resolution and up to 875,000 fps at reduced resolution. T Both the T3610 and TMX 5010 camera models include features designed to maximize image capture and workflow flexibility, including a 2 × 2 binned mode for higher vertical resolution at the camera’s top frame rates.
