Heavy duty braking system designs are as diverse as the different industries in which they are employed. From marine and mining to metal working and paper processing, systems are required to perform static, dynamic and emergency braking with precise controlled force. Quality is of the upmost importance in these products as the cost of a short service life can often be extremely high for the end-user.
A Mid-Atlantic manufacturer of power transmission belts needed to improve the tension control within their belt width trimming system. As belts are fed into the trimmer, a mechanical tension device was used to apply drag on the belts so they would present a consistent profile to the trimming knives.
Finding components that perfectly suit the needs of an application can often be frustrating. Design engineers will often have to compromise their original design to some degree in order to match the components that are available. However, when a manufacturer of ramps for wheelchair accessible vehicles needed to find a linear actuator with a small footprint that could manually retract if required, Warner Linear was able to design a new product range that perfectly met all of its needs.
