Motion Control – Precisely Measure Curvature and Angles with New Dual-axis Pitch and Roll Stages!

Motion Control – Dual-axis Pitch and Roll Stages!

motion control | Pitch-and-Roll Stage

OES Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control – The precise measurements of angles and the curvature of objects are easily determined using two new Pitch and Roll stages just introduced by OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.). The PR100-45-01 (pictured) is driven by stepper motors and the PR100-45-02 is driven by brushless servo motors with quadrature incremental optical encoders.

The Pitch axis (lower stage) is a high precision goniometer stage which features preloaded cross roller guides and a high ratio worm drive for smooth motion over a range of travel of +/- 45 degrees. It has a typical accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/- 0.01 degrees. Additionally, this axis has end-of-travel limit switches.

The 100 mm diameter Roll axis (upper stage) has a 180:1 gear ratio for smooth motion and has a precise pattern of threaded holes for fixtures or tooling. This axis has an accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/-  0.01 degrees. The Roll axis has a Home signal for initialization. Each axis features a calibrated scale to visually display the angle. The maximum speed with stepper motors is 14 degrees/second and 45 degrees/second with servo motors.  The knobs of the stepper motors can be replaced with optional optical encoders for position verification.

The resolution of the PR100-45-01 stepper motor driven duel-axis stage depends on the resolution of the step motor driver resolution or the optical encoder if a servo motor is used. A resolution of 0.001 degrees equivalent to 3.6 arc-sec can be achieved using a10 micro-steps per step stepper motor driver or an encoder with a resolution of 500 cycles per revolution.

The PR100-45-02 that features servo motors and optical quadrature encoders are used for very precise closed loop operation and greater speeds. The PR100-45-01 and -02 stages can be ordered plug-and-play with a fully a compatible multi-axis motion controller from OES.

Motion Control – Tolomatic Actuator Rated up to 50,000 pounds of force!

Motion Control – High Force Actuator to 50,000 Lbs!

motion control high force actuators

 

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control — Tolomatic’s expanded extreme-force electric actuator family now includes the RSX128 actuator, rated up to 50,000 pounds of force (222.4 kN). Designed for replacing hydraulic cylinders and designed for 100 percent duty cycle, the RSX actuator features Tolomatic’s precision-ground planetary roller screws for operating life in challenging environments. Applications include assembly, metal fabrication (pressing, punching, clamping), automotive manufacturing, timber processing, motion simulators and more.

The RSX128 actuator represents a 60-percent increase in the bi-directional maximum force provided by Tolomatic’s extreme-force RSX electric actuator family. Additional frame sizes include the RSX080 which provides 18,000 lbf/80kN and the RSX096P press-model which is optimized to provide extend force up to (40,000 lbf/178 kN).

For all models, IP65 is standard for protection against dust and water spray. IP67 is optional for improved resistance of water ingress. A modified food-grade version, designed for volumetric filling and other high-force food-and-beverage applications, is available as a custom design with food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless-steel components to meet the requirements of washdown applications.

The entire RSX actuator family’s construction includes tie-rods and Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum housings. A standard internal anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance.

Industrial Safety – Is Your Workplace Safe? Find out with the “Gotcha Stick”!

Industrial Safety – Check Machine Guarding use the FREE “GOTCHA STICK”

industrial safety - check OSHA guarding standards

 

Industrial Safety — Omron introduces the safety 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 safety “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.

Industrial Safety Gotcha Stick

Machine guarding by means of hard (fixed) barriers is one of the main ways of protecting personnel from point-of-operation hazards. The safety “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.

Omron’s industrial 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.
