Phasa provided one of its standard machine designs
fitted with customised tooling for staking completed pairs of lamp housings (left and right), each having 37 staking positions with a cycle time of 25 seconds (Phasa equipment uses hot air to reform cold stakes for the assembly of thermoplastic components, and is capable of producing more than 200 riveted fixings in a single operation).
The open machine design
enables simple integration with third-party equipment while the robot's small footprint optimizes usage of valuable plant space.
As a hot-stamping machine manufacturer this would simplify the machine design
requirements and make it more straightforward for machine operators.
Engineering TV is a joint effort by Penton's engineering brands including "Machine Design
," "Electronic Design," "Motion Systems Design," "EEPN" and "Microwaves."
Tom Dierks holds a degree in machine design
from Bradley Univ., specializing in Manufacturing Engineering.
The standard machine design
provides a woven mesh, end-tensioned bottom screen deck, but optional finger decks or Bofor bar decks are also available.
Speaking of the type of capability that they would like to have for the SMPI--and Warndorf emphasizes that the undertaking is not about a machine design
, per se, as it is about the performance and functionality of the machine--he references work that was done by the late Professor Jiri Tlusty of the University of Florida.
Further research and development is planned to extend the application into automotive power-train and engine and suspension components, as well as the refinement of the machine design
and construction for the production of larger, high-volume components.
It incorporates a can spin machine design
with driven lower lifters and five seaming stations that provide higher quality seams, longer life for component parts and superior machine performance for processors looking to improve canning performance.
Because it utilizes the contamination-resistant magnetic scanning principle, it is ideally suited for incorporation into many machine design
elements, such as headstocks on lathes.
Now, physicist Amos Ori of the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa has come up with a potentially more practical time machine design
. Unlike most previous proposals, this one requires only normal matter and the vacuum known to exist in space, says Off.
