Aries Engineering Co. Inc. has introduced the HyperCyl-ema, a robust, servo-driven linear actuator for precision assembly applications or applications not suited for the company’s standard HyperCyl or IntelliCyl products.
At its most basic, press-fit assembly is a simple process. An assembler loads parts into a fixture and actuates the press. After the machine has done its job, the worker unloads the assembly and the process starts all over again.
Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. It’s as strong as some steels, but 45 percent lighter. Titanium is also prized for its corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, crack resistance, and ability to withstand moderately high temperatures without creeping.
