Linear joint for moving parts

Today a good command of English is self-evident. How about your knowledge of technical terms? At regular intervals handling publishes interesting news and translates some vocabulary.

Angle joints in accordance with DIN 71802 serve as linking and guide elements for moving parts and create corner joints. These standard parts are not always sufficient for the design, particularly when the force is to be transmitted linearly. Specifically designed for this application, the axial joint represents a special solution in the field of angle joints in accordance with DIN 71802. The absorbed forces are converted not at an angle of 90 but instead in the form of a 180° variant – which is linearly. The possible pivoting angle, comparable with DIN 71802, is plus/minus 18°, the withdrawal forces for the ball stud from the housing range, depending on the size, between 30 and 100 Newton. The axial joints are available in the dimensions M5 to M16 in steel and stainless steel. To provide the design with extra creative leeway, the specialist mbo Osswald has developed a further non-disassembling variant. These axial joints are able to absorb particularly high loads. There is the additional possibility of developing and implementing application-specific special solutions. mbo Osswald offers its customers a large assortment of different linking elements, a wide selection for a multitude of possible applications. In addition to steel and stainless steel, linking elements can also be manufactured from duplex steel for special applications. pb

Plug and play in warehouse

Linde has presentet the concept truck Epion. The established tested system is already utilised for battery-operated screwdrivers, drills and gardening tools. If various attachments can be fitted to one adaptor then, for example, a leaf rake can be transformed into a duo hoe or a broom in next to no time. Linde Material Handling has applied this practical system to warehouse trucks. A one-off investment in a drive unit with battery and control unit is sufficient. The only other outlay would be for further „tools“, but not for another truck. This guarantees maximum usage and optimal deployment of trucks and batteries as well as reducing acquisition costs. It is possible to operate the truck via remote control which improves occupational safety. The main component of this system is a drive unit with an innovative control interface. Due to the modular load interface, multiple tools can be fitted to the drive unit, allowing a variety of trucks to be created. For example, the application of fork arms turn the device into a pallet truck, but exchange these for a monomast with initial lift and you have a multifunctional pallet stacker. Or create a tow tractor to pull roller containers by attaching a driver stand with tow coupling to the drive unit. The mast unit of the pallet stacker can also be utilised as a freestanding workstation without using the drive module. pb
