Is Your Work Place Safe? Find out with the “Gotcha Stick!”

 

Gotcha Stick-Safe Work Place

STI
Product Offer

STI — Omron introduces the “Gotcha Stick” Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.

Although not officially adopted by OSHA, the “Gotcha Stick” is based on data from “A Review of Machine-Guarding Recommendations,” by Donald R. Vaillancourt and Stover H. Snook of the Liberty Mutual Research Center for Health & Safety. This data redefines the dimensions of the human arm for the purposes of machine guarding. The resulting new stick has been modified to include openings of less than 1/4 inch over the first 1/2 inch distance.

Gotcha Stick

Guarding machinery by means of hard (fixed) barriers is one of the main ways of protecting personnel from point-of-operation hazards. The “Gotcha Stick” is the easiest means of verifying that openings in hard guarding will not allow the point-of-operation to be accessed by the operator.

With headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley, STI was founded nearly 30 years ago and employs more than 350 people. STI has been selected twice by Forbes and three times by Business Week as one of the “world’s best small companies.” STI’s safety products are used to protect workers around machinery, automated equipment and industrial robots. Their products serve a wide variety of applications and markets, including semiconductor, automotive, electronics manufacturing, packaging and consumer markets.

Motion Control – NEXEN Eclipse Servo Motor Brakes Deliver Significant Advantages!

Moton Control - NEXEN Eclipse Servo Motor Brakes

NEXEN Servo Motor Brakes

Vadnais Heights, MN – Motion Control Components – Nexen Group’s Eclipse Servo Motor Brakes offer distinct advantages over spring-engaged, electrically-released brakes. With Nexen’s servo motor brake, no energy is consumed when the brake is disengaged. (Electrically-released brakes consume power continuously, even in disengaged mode, creating heat inside the brake, which detracts from its ability to produce full torque.) It is spring-engaged/air-released (no electric coil) to keep the brake cool until it’s needed.

Nexen’s servo motor brakes are designed to mount to the shaft end of servo motors up to 20 horsepower, including NEMA 23, 34 and 42 frame sizes. The brake’s square-shaped housing allows flexibility to custom make the mounting features match the motor dimensions. The brake’s output end duplicates the motor mounting features. The input end bore accepts the motor shaft and is fixed inside the brake with a split-hub/shaft collar arrangement.

Key features and benefits of the Eclipse servo motor brakes:

  • Fail-safe, power-off engagement
  • High torque – 50% more torque than competitive models (torque range 2 to 125 Nm)
  • Zero backlash for accurate holding
  • Integral flanges adapt to any servo motor or AC motor brand and mounting style
  • High torsional rigidity, no system wind-up
  • Models configured to hold the machined end of a ball screw
  • Can be used for intermittent dynamic stopping
  • Spring engaged for holding and E-stop applications
  • High speed capability – engineered and balanced for servo applications

The Servo Motor Brake is a perfect complement to Nexen’s RPS system, holding an accurate position while work is being performed.

About Nexen Group, Inc.

Our heritage is built on producing technically superior products while providing the highest level of customer support. As a leading manufacturer of precision motion control components, power transmission and web tension control products, Nexen works to remain at the forefront of cutting edge engineering and production excellence. Our production capabilities include computerized control and testing systems, dry cutting applications, special coating processes, over 80 multi-axis precision CNC machine tools and automated assembly.

XY Gantry Robot with Theta-Control from Intellidrives!

Motion Control Components - Intellidrives-Logo

Intellidrives Motion Control Components - XY Gantry Robot

Philadelphia, PA, — Motion Control Components and Systems – Repeatability and accuracy are essential characteristics of any motion control system, and the objective of the design is to assure the desired trajectories can accurately follow through the working range of the system.

In traditional XY gantry designs upper gantry member (Y axis) is carried by two identical bottom axes (X1 and X2). Each X1 and X2 axes motor/screw/bearing systems are separated by finite distance orthogonal to the direction of the axes.

INTELLIGENT ACTUATORS can easily “talk over” USB 2.0, Ethenet, RS232, RS485 interfaces and come with powerful yet easy to use software packages. for system start-up and integration, like communication drivers, linkable DLL libraries, National Instruments Labview drivers and VI examples, GUI and easy-to-use DXF conversion software.

Due to the manufacturing precision of the components, such as linear guides deflections, ball screw lead errors, axes misalignment, the variation of the position errors in X1 and X2 axes controllers, XY gantries orthogonality is affected. As Y-axis with load traverses across XY plane, it also introduces X axes position errors that are Y axis position dependent.

The current approach to this design challenge is to implement 2-D position error mapping or suspend Y axis on the flexible members (flexures) and to independently control X1 and X2 axes to assure orthogonality. This approach reduces system bandwidth and provides small range of angle adjustment, usually within not more than 1 degree.

There are also many applications, where large THETA angle is an INTENTIONAL FEATURE of the system design (X-Y-THETA) to allow alignment of the work tool to the non-orthogonally located objects or to align patterns.
