The function of gearing is to mesh with other gear elements to transmit altered torque and rotation. Review this classroom to learn more
Miniature engineered designs
This classroom covers miniature linear slides guides, sensors, encoders, gears, and motors that lend themselves to tiny designs.
Industrial power supplies
The editors of Design World present a library of FAQs, technical articles, and videos on industrial power supplies.
In the conveyor classroom installment, there are more than a dozen references that detail types of material handling with conveyors.
This classroom details the operation of dc brush motors, also called permanent-magnet (PM) dc motors … as well as the use of these motors in various in motion designs.
Resources on integrated motors to differentiate the most common variations of these motion-control mainstays, and details on how to use the motors to satisfy requirements.
Servo systems consist of four main components — motor, drive, controller, and feedback. In some cases, a standalone controller determines required motor moves.
Vibration damping & shocks
The ultimate goal for design engineers is to build and tune designs for minimal vibration (free or forced) and render unavoidable system vibration damped (dissipated) or isolated.
