The GP16 precision spindle combined with a DC motor make it possible to transform rotary motion into axial motion.
Maxon Motors has a new product for converting rotary motion into linear motion--the GP16 precision spindle transforms rotary motion into axial motion when combined with a DC motor.
There are also a large range of impellers that can be used: radial flow impellers such as the Rushton Turbine move the fluid out radially, axial flow impellers move the fluid out in an axial direction, and mixed flow impellers generate both radial and axial motion.
Reduced axial motion with no need for part re-registration.
Hydraulic analysis of annular flow with axial motion of the inner pipe have been carried out (Haige and Xisheng 1996, Filip and David 2003) for different pipe/borehole configurations and fluid models.
In order to avoid this possibility, a fluidic system designer might consider utilizing static seals in their system with magnetic couplings to facilitate rotary or axial motion inside the sealed system.
The system also has an enormous depth of focus; one can accommodate from infinity to a metre of so, with only a few mm of eyepiece axial motion, and in fact to within half a metre, but this will seriously cut down the aperture.
They can be built to fit worn or damaged shafts with high run-out, thermal growth, and axial motion.
Axial motion of the screw oscillates the injection pressure, which better aligns the molecules to improve part strength, explains Prof.
Along with many other innovations in the areas of axial motion and input range, this led JVC to apply for 17 pulsating sphere technology-related patents.
The OFS will permit significant axial motion, making it ideal for applications where there is shaft float and thermal expansion.
This is explained by the fact that at the very beginning stresses are smaller and the slip condition accommodates axial motion even on the wall but leaves nearly unaffected the rest of the liquid.
