Efficient power-saving braking for mobile robots is critical to minimize battery charging downtime. The new larger size Miki Pulley BXR-LE brakes are ideal for factories and similar applications using mobile robots.
Conveying parcel delivery with no system downtime is accomplished with speed and accuracy using Miki Pulley CSZ Clutches. Conveyors continuously operate via servomotor power by way of a V-belt. The system automatically switches on/off as programmed when engaged by the CSZ Clutches.
Commercial garage doors range in many sizes and configurations requiring a “just right” model and size brake for reliable automatic operation. Depending on the design and size of the overhead door and placement of the brake, a variety of brake models and sizes offer solutions from the Miki Pulley brake lineup.
Robotic applications in manufacturing need precise movement and positioning in manufacturing operations from teach pendant programming through full, automated production with exact sequential motion and timed positioning. Miki Pulley BXR Brakes apply holding torque after the motor joint stops and provides dynamic braking in the event of an emergency such as a power interruption.
The complexity of supply chain issues in a globally interdependent economy is vast, and there are multiple aspects to be addressed in each problem. Food supply has been in the spotlight throughout the pandemic and considering inflation and other factors, the issues aren’t likely to disappear overnight. However, companies like Warner Electric, Force Control, and Miki Pulley are literally putting the brakes on some of these issues with solutions for today and tomorrow. Warner Electric and Miki Pulley both offer brake solutions that include various robotic and battery-powered agricultural equipment being developed for the future while Force Control addresses the here and now with a brake solution for a palletizer problem that was disrupting production at National Frozen Foods.
Stainless steel ASK Couplings from Miki Pulley feature a unique “sliced” body structure making them an effective low-cost corrosion resistant solution that can accommodate many types of misalignments. The stainless-steel design makes them ideal for use in food and chemical applications.
