Linear Drive Pitch
Amacoil (Aston, PA) has announced the changing linear
pitch on Uhing rolling ring linear drives. The linear pitch is
now faster using a lever control option on the drive unit.
The pitch control lever permits manually setting and changing linear pitch independently of the drive motor speed or
other controls. Features include:
17 models of Uhing rolling ring drives that have a differ-
ent maximum linear pitch.
The smallest drive that has a maximum linear pitch of 6. 2
The largest drive that has a pitch of 76 mm.
100 notched settings on the pitch control scale.
Axial thrust from 30 to 3,600 N.
Twiflex (Braintree, MA) has announced the T30 hydraulic
pressure applied, modular caliper brake. The brake pro-
vides greater braking force and withstands greater operat-
ing pressures in a compact assembly. Features include:
A split housing for side or center mounting flexibility and
accommodation of a variety of disc thicknesses.
A 120 bar (1740 psi) operating pressure which produc-
es 25. 4 kN (5710 lb.ft.) of braking force.
An operating range between - 20˚ to +70˚C.
Electronic Braking Torque Regulation
Mayr’s (Germany) new, intelligent braking
torque control decelerates devices and
machines evenly and gently. The intelligent
braking torque control module offers a
solution to generate a variable brak-
ing torque for ROBA-stop safety
brakes. Features include:
The ability to compensate for
negative influences on the brak-
ing torque consistency in applica-
tions requiring a constant braking torque
within narrow tolerance limits.
24 or 48 V DC voltage.
The ability to control brakes with a coil nominal current
of 10 or 5 A.
A clamping force for the brake rotor that can be speci-
fied to 25, 50, or 75% of the nominal spring force by
means of two digital inputs.
The possibility of a continuous, analogue default signal
from 0 to 10 V.
The ability to determine, without using a sensor, whether
the armature disk is attracted or has dropped.
The ability to recognize unpermitted high temperatures if
