How to Achieve Optimum Performance in a Miniature Gear Train

Smooth, accurate gears and optimum performance is the goal of any new design. Achieving those goals in the early design stage not only meets performance requirements but makes your design cost-efficient. A key component of this is being able to accurately predict dimensional changes due to any type of surface finishing. Other benefits include lower manufacturing costs and no time lost due to design error. White Paper Courtesy of SDP/SI

Changing Entertainment Experiences with Electro-Mechanical Screw Jacks

There has been a significant shift in the Entertainment Industry to move away from manual and hydraulic operated systems to electro-mechanical screw jacks. The key reasons are safety, cleanliness, sound and reliability.

Providing the ultimate entertainment experience dates back to the Colosseum days, where lifts and trap doors were all part of making people, animals and staging all of a sudden appear. The Entertainment Industry still uses these techniques today, but how they operate has changed dramatically in recent years by using electro-mechanical screw jacks. White Paper Courtesy of DieQua

1 Embracing Change (December 2019)

Change can be daunting, nerve-wracking or even downright scary. But when we're faced with change in our lives, it's not the change itself we fear. It's the unknown elements that come with it. "You don't know what you don't know," a wise man once told me.

2 Upgrading Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers (ACHE) and Cooling Towers (June 2020)

Many industrial facilities with air-cooled heat exchangers (ACHE) and cooling towers often have older units installed. Depending on the age, repairs, and maintenance done over the years it may have had an impact on performance. Upon conducting site inspections of the equipment, it is sometimes found that ACHE or cooling tower components have degraded. This can result in a system that is not very energy-efficient and delivers substandard cooling performance.

3 Improvement of the Noise and Vibration Behavior of an Electromechanical Brake Booster - an Integral Approach (March 2020)

The automotive world faces a tremendous change. Autonomous driving and electrification are two big topics in this context that are pushing this change. The demand for higher comfort, higher safety and tightened environmental requirements drive as well the technological change from former mechanical actuations to electro-mechanical systems in new vehicles. This can be observed especially for braking and steering systems.

4 Autosave Increases Productivity, Reduces Downtime for Nestle Purina (August 2009)

As automation devices have grown more complex and have incorporated more plant data in their operation, there is an increased need for programming changes to continue smooth operation or improve performance. In environments requiring frequent changes, it is not uncommon for code to be lost or changes overwritten, resulting in increased downtime and decreased productivity

5 Motors and More (June 2016)

Electric motors are often considered a mature industry— one whose basic technology wasinvented more than a century ago and whose fundamental concepts haven’t changed much since. But new applications continue to demand change. Engineers want greater efficiency, more precise control and improved reliability.

6 Gear Lubrication: Long-Term Protection for Wind Turbines (April 2014)

The chemical and physical properties of gear oils may change, depending - more or less - upon their formulation and the environmental conditions under which they are used. This is why - after three years of use in a wind turbine - a gear oil was examined to determine if indeed changes were evident and if the protection of the gears and rolling bearings still met the same requirements as would be expected of fresh oil. Our findings revealed that the existing gear oil - as well as its ability to protect the gears and rolling bearings - had degraded very little compared to fresh oil.

7 Another Thought: Brace for the Impact of The Washington Solution to Fix Climate Change (September 2021)

How it impacts our industries.

8 Global Industrial Outlook: Game Changer (September 2015)

11 Closer to the Sun (June 2016)

Without the sun, there would be no Earth and no life. However, our knowledge about our home star is still very limited. This is about to change. In 2018, the European Space Agency (ESA) will send its Solar Orbiter into space, equipped with a thick heat shield.

12 The Gizmo Society (June 2018)

It is hard these days to find any device that is not IoT-compatible or WiFi-connected. I recently had a new well pump installed that requires an iPhone for setup, which makes it hard for me to check or change the setup since I do not own an iPhone. In Olden Times, you had potentiometers or RS-232 connections - and that was fine.

13 Show Me Something (October 2018)

Fall is the season of change. But in industrial America, it's also the season of trade shows. Either way, the season is in full swing.

14 Gearbox Innovation Evolves in Step with Expanding Servo Market (September 2018)

Approximately one quarter of all servo motors around the world require some type of gear reduction in their applications. From large satellite dishes to precision medical devices, gearboxes boost torque and reduce speed for servos in order for them to be sized more efficiently. While gearbox fundamentals haven't changed much over the past 20 years, their effectiveness has improved significantly, driven mostly by the need to accommodate advancements in servo technology.

15 Nasa Glenn Research Center - A Look Back (April 2016)

In 1941, the federal Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory set up shop in Cleveland, Ohio. This year, and several name changes later, what is now the NASA Glenn Research Center celebrates its 75th anniversary. As part of the year-long festivities, Glenn’s adjunct Lewis Field main campus will be open to the public May 21 and 22, and Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio will hold its open house June 11 and 12.

16 Effect of Assembly Errors in Back-to-Back Gear Efficiency Testing (December 2015)

As gear efficiency is improved in small steps, it is important to be able to distinguish actual improvements from scatter that can occur while testing. An FZG back-to-back gear test rig was used to investigate how the assembly and re-assembly of the same test setup affects the measurements. A spread in torque loss between one assembly and another of the same test setup were observed. Rig conditions also affected the spread in input torque. With knowledge of how the spread in torque loss varies due to assembly, test results could be distinguished between changes due to assembly and actual differences between tests.

17 Alloying Strategy Boosts Powertrain Performance (June 2013)

The development of a new, gas-carburized gear steel, necessitated by a customer-driven specification, has not only increased the power density in an existing gearbox design, but has done so without requiring any significant change to production processes or heat treatment equipment.

18 Packaging Stimulus (April 2009)

Few industries are experiencing change quite as fast as the packaging arena. Lighter-weight containers are being introduced to reduce costs and energy use, packaging is being redesigned to attract consumer attention and manufacturers are using fewer materials in an effort to address environmental concerns.

19 Development of an Actuator for Ambient to Cryo Application (December 2010)

During the qualification campaign of the NIRSpec (near-infrared spectrometer) instrument mechanism, the actuator could not achieve the expected lifetime that had been extended during the development phase. The initial design could not be adapted to the requested number of revolutions during that phase. Consequently the actuator needed to be modified so that the function of the mechanism would not be endangered or, by extension, the overall function of the NIRSpec instrument. The modification included a change of the overall actuator design—internal dimensions, tolerances, materials, lubrication and assembly process—while keeping the interface to the mechanism, mass and function.
