Is Your Work Place Safe? Find out with the “Gotcha Stick!”

 

Gotcha Stick-Safe Work Place

STI
Product Offer

STI — Omron introduces the “Gotcha Stick” Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.

Although not officially adopted by OSHA, the “Gotcha Stick” is based on data from “A Review of Machine-Guarding Recommendations,” by Donald R. Vaillancourt and Stover H. Snook of the Liberty Mutual Research Center for Health & Safety. This data redefines the dimensions of the human arm for the purposes of machine guarding. The resulting new stick has been modified to include openings of less than 1/4 inch over the first 1/2 inch distance.

Gotcha Stick

Guarding machinery by means of hard (fixed) barriers is one of the main ways of protecting personnel from point-of-operation hazards. The “Gotcha Stick” is the easiest means of verifying that openings in hard guarding will not allow the point-of-operation to be accessed by the operator.

With headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley, STI was founded nearly 30 years ago and employs more than 350 people. STI has been selected twice by Forbes and three times by Business Week as one of the “world’s best small companies.” STI’s safety products are used to protect workers around machinery, automated equipment and industrial robots. Their products serve a wide variety of applications and markets, including semiconductor, automotive, electronics manufacturing, packaging and consumer markets.

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Conponents–BOGEN develops and produces high-precision variable magnetic scales and measuring systems to measure angle, distance, position.

As the available space for position measurement is always tight, BOGEN has introduced a more compact version of the magnetic measuring head IKS9. In addition to the existing design style with an 11 mm wide body, the measuring head IIKS9. is now available in 9 mm width to be used in the most confined spaces. Despite reducing the package size, the IKS9. benefits remain the same – the highest accuracy for magnetic measurements with freely selectable resolutions. The IKS9. impresses customers in automation, instrumentation and motion control applications with an extremely high accuracy and a particularly high degree of modularity

BOGEN magnetic heads comply with the relevant national and international standards (ISO, DIN, IATA, ABA, etc.) and can be used with various magnetic coercivities. Special solutions for reading magnetic ink (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition: MICR) and for recognizing and validating banknotes are also a part of their product portfolio

BOGEN has been developing and producing magnetic heads for demanding applications since 1951. Their core competence is in the design and implementation of customer specific magnetic solutions for applications such as access control in multi-storey car parks, for the detection of credit card information in ATMs or magnetic sensors for the reliable validation of bank notes.”

Motion Control Application- Maxon Drives Help People Walk Again!

At the first Cybathlon in Zürich, researchers are presenting the world’s best exoskeletons – devices that enable paraplegics to walk again. Motors from Switzerland play a central part in this development.

Maxon motion control application - Helping People Walk Again

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – On October 8th 2016, people with paraplegia are going on a footrace at the Cybathlon in Zürich. Aided by exoskeletons, they will compete against each other on an obstacle course to show the public how far advanced technology has come in this area.

Switzerland, is playing a central role in this process. Many of the exoskeletons are fitted with components from the canton of Obwalden – components without which there wouldn’t be a lot of movement to be observed.

From the planet Mars to an exoskeleton

Robotic suits have to be both powerful and lightweight. Too much weight would cause the battery to drain in no time. This presents a big challenge to developers. Most of the motors that are strong enough to power an exoskeleton are large and heavy. This is why engineers are turning to the Swiss company that already developed the drives for NASA’s Mars rovers: maxon motor. maxon drives are powerful, lightweight, and energy-efficient, meaning that they can conserve battery power, and be very durable.

“We spent decades perfecting our motors”, says maxon CEO Eugen Elmiger. A lot of money has gone into research and development. It was worth it: These days, the motors from Switzerland can be found everywhere, in robots, airplanes, cars, and medical devices.

Knowledge yields an advantage in the market

Providing competent technical support for customers is just as important as delivering high-quality products. Small businesses and start-ups often approach maxon with specific drive technology problems that they lack the expert knowledge to solve by themselves. maxon motor, in turn is able to help with its extensive experience in the field, a strength that lets the company stand out from the international competition. “Our knowledge and the ability to give expert advice are a great advantage in the market,” says Elmiger. The Cybathlon is a good example: In the field of exoskeletons, the Swiss company has a pretty clear idea about what’s important besides choosing the right motor. As a result, quite a few of the participating teams are using products from Switzerland. The same is true for other disciplines, such as prosthetic arms or legs and electrical wheelchairs.

For examples, read maxon’s exclusive Cybathlon brochure or visit the new site for technology enthusiasts – drive.tech

maxon supports the Cybathlon as a sponsor and partner

The Cybathlon games are organized by the ETH Zürich and are being held for the first time on October 8, 2016 at the Swiss Arena in Zürich. Around 80 teams from all over the world will be participating. The machine-assisted competitors will compete against one another in six disciplines: prosthetic legs, prosthetic arms, exoskeletons, motorized wheelchairs, bicycles with muscle stimulation, and virtual racing using thought control. What’s not allowed at the Paralympics is an absolute must at the Cybathlon: the use of state-of-the-art technology. “Our aim with the Cybathlon is to break down barriers between the general public, people with disabilities, and scientists,” says ETH professor Robert Riener, who invented the Cybathlon.

The Swiss drive specialist maxon motor supports the Cybathlon as a sponsor and partner. The company will be present at the games with a workshop for the teams and a small exhibition about the history of prosthetics.

Comprehensive documentation and software are included with every delivery, and are also available for you to download from our website at www.maxonmotor.com.
