What is the Rheological Significance of the Entrance Pressure Drop?

Extensional Viscosity – Rheological Significance of the Entrance Pressure Drop Azadeh Farahanchi, Rheological Scientist, Ph.D   Extensional/elongational viscosity measurements (melt strength) are of rheological importance in any  plastic stretching process for example blow molding, sheet extrusion, blown film extrusion, fiber spinning, etc. as the plastic is constantly stretching or expanding in such processes. Two polymers [...]

How to choose the Right Gearhead

Provide more Torque at Lower RPMs The appropriate use of gearing in your motion control application can make it run at lower rpms and provide more torque. Should you decide to use a gearhead, available configurations include an in-line or a right-angle gearhead. You must and also decide whether you want a motor with an integrated gearhead. The assembly includes both the gearhead and motor in a single housing. […]

Temperature Control Success Story

Film Tech, a company in Stanley, WI, purchased a used 3 layer blown film line from a company in Ohio. The machine was disassembled and brought to their facility in the spring of 2015. Film Tech requested that a complete controls upgrade be completed on the line due to lapses in documentation for the machine in its original state. The scope of the project was focused on upgrading the temperature control of the extruders and die, updating the web handling of the line with new drives and motors while providing a new operator station to control the line processes. With these items, updates to the safeties on the machine were also necessary. The upgrade required not only electrical support for the items that Sure Controls was providing, but also interfacing the equipment to the new Process Control Corporation (PCC) and QC Electronics equipment.  Aside from the electrical support, mechanical support was also to be provided for motor mounting, a new chill roll, winder improvements as well as aiding in the location for control cabinets and conduits.

Gearing in Motion-Control Designs

What are the Advantages of Using a Gearhead? Estimates say that only about one-third of the motion control systems in service use gearing, although there are good reasons for doing so. For example, when your motion control system must run at 1,000 rpm or less, the use of a gearhead is advantageous. It’s also wise to use gearing when designing systems that have size constraints. Pairing a gearhead with your servo motor or using an integrated gearmotor can let you employ a smaller motor, thereby reducing the system size. […]
