Differences between Rotary actuators and Linear actuators in EOAT?

November 16th, 2017

End of Arm Tooling actuators are classed according to how they move. For example, linear actuators impart motion along a straight line. Rotary actuators, as you’d guess, facilitate an arcing movement. That rotary effector is going to turn in circles while its linear cousin slides on a rule-like line between two or more points. If […]

Sheet Metal Forming Using Wet Blasting Technology: What Makes This Technology Accurately Effective?

October 24th, 2017

Wet blasting technology has been around for some time now. It’s often viewed as a dry blasting alternative, with a liquid spray adding some interesting extra features to the abrasive medium’s flow characteristics. In sheet metal forming, a production-centric activity that targets the steely skins of complex objects and structures, the focused slurry blasts dirt […]

Polyclutch: Precision Slip Clutches Applications and Uses

September 22nd, 2017

As a general rule of thumb, large mechanical equipment lines function as a meshing whole. A load is moved by a power transmission chain, that load is manipulated, then the process repeats. Employed in a complex mechatronics-ruled facility, a production plant that’s automated, that carefully crafted layout works like clockwork. Where, then, does a precision […]

Industrial Automation with the Help of End of Arm Tooling for Manufacturers

September 8th, 2017

Different engineering principles dictate how end of arm tooling systems work within a manufacturing environment. Certainly, we can say with some conviction a particular manufacturer will require a proprietary set of effectors. Conversely, a processing line that doesn’t adhere to this operational model is free to manipulate a payload in a simpler manner. Hold on, […]

Dynatect Way Wipers Uses and Applications

August 31st, 2017

Machine shops use tight engineering tolerances to produce highly refined final products. The parts are dimensionally identical, they’re perfectly finished, and they’re certain to perform as intended. However, as fundamentally impeccable as this processing environment must be, there’s always subtractive detritus left behind. Metal shavings, tool lubricants, hot chips, these are the byproducts of subtractive […]

Dynatect: Purposes of Steel Covers

August 17th, 2017

When the cutters on a manufacturing station spit out metal shavings, telescopic steel covers slide in place as a protection system. Built from boxed segments of sheet steel, the alloy-toughened covers act as a shield when a workstation machine head kicks out hot chips and coolant spray. Dynatech, yet another Enkosi partner, produces this active […]
