Nuts working harder

Nuts working harder
Lead screw and nut combinations are often chosen from standard ranges to convert the rotary motion of the screw into a linear movement. However sometimes the nut design can be adapted to deliver more than one advantage.One big advantage is that nuts can be manufactured in just about any machineable material including bronze...

The Schmidt coupling offsets like no other coupling.

The Schmidt coupling offsets like no other coupling.
When designing new machines the parallel alignment of the shafts is always paramount. However some applications actually require that parallel offset to be dynamic during operation and well above and beyond the capabilities of standard shaft couplings. To achieve the exaggerated...

The wrong choice of shaft coupling design will effect encoder performance

 The wrong choice of shaft coupling design will effect encoder performance
Too many designers spend time and money on high accuracy position and speed devices, such as rotary encoders, only to compromise their performance by using an inappropriate shaft coupling. Shaft encoders are accurate instruments, capable of extremely high angular resolution and are normally supplied as servo or flange mounted units...
