Smart Torq Accommodates Eight Parameter Sets

The Smart Torq error proofer, ASG's new controller for electric assembly tools, accommodates up to eight parameter sets.

The Smart Torq automatically learns an assembly's fastener installation characteristics and then monitors the fastening process, comparing learned characteristics to those being experienced while the fastener is installed.

By monitoring the entire process rather than just controlling torque, the Smart Torq catches problems during the process, such as differences in workpiece characteristics, fasteners or assembly tool performance.

Shaker Offers Double The Vibration Capacity

Entela-Grand Rapids has doubled its vibration capacity and increased its shock testing capability with the addition of a 6,600 lbs.-of- force shaker with a 2-in. stroke.

The shaker is powered by a high performance digital solid state switching amplifier rated at 30 kilovolt-amperes. The hydrostatic slip plate bearings restrain high moment loads for improved cross-axis motion performance in lateral and fore-aft directions. An environmental chamber allows rapid transition thermal cycling during vibration in all three axes.

The shaker can be used in the automotive, industrial, medical and aerospace industries.

Software Develops Satisfaction Surveys

The Gosling Group's new Dynamic Questionnaire Engine (DQE) enables development of professional satisfaction surveys.

DQE technology enables respondent satisfaction to be measured directly by filtering out any emotional responses at their sources, enabling true benchmarks to be achieved. It also delivers satisfaction weightings, showing each respondent's level of conviction.

Respondents receive immediate feedback to their inputs following completion of the survey, which typically takes about four minutes.

DQE products allow both customer and employee satisfaction to be measured.

Linear Bearings Are Free Of Organic Lubricants

Schneeberger's new DryRunner line of antifriction precision linear bearings is free of organic lubricants, sulfur containing solid lubricants and soft metal coating lubricants.

While the running surfaces in standard linear bearings without organic lubricants are destroyed after 10,000 rolling element overruns, DryRunner bearings run dry for more than one million overruns.

DryRunner is available in sizes RN3, RN4, RN6, RNG4 and RNG6, the numbers indicating the diameter of the rolling element in millimeters. Lengths are available up to 900 mm.

Absolute Angle Encoders Offer High System Accuracy

Heidenhain's new absolute angle encoders have a system accuracy of ±1 angular second.

The angle encoders are intended for high precision applications such as rotary tables and swivel heads on machine tools, telescopes or spectrometers. They can be designed with one scanning unit on the main track (with 32,768 grating periods) and therefore fulfill all requirements of machine tool design.

The angle encoders have a hollow through shaft and diameter of 60 mm. They are available with Heidenhain's EnDat, Fanuc or Mitsubishi interfaces.
