With a sliding lock button and sturdy nylon construction on each of the four standard latches, the PowerClaw Latching System is engineered to use compressive force to keep your case closed during the toughest of missions.
for the proposed two-axis testing shall be noted in particular that the force transducer and the maximum torque and the momentenaufnehmer also have to withstand maximum tensile or compressive force.
The flexible chambers allowed the researchers to apply a compressive force in the first stages of cell development.
Most often, the compressive force is supplied by two metal components with the abrasive particle sandwiched between the two, resulting in a scored and cracked surface.
Instead, tensioned stainless steel rods inside the piers counteract the outward thrust with a strong vertical compressive force corresponding to the force exerted by a pinnacle or buttress.
According to Roshan, "High pressure molding is defined as the method of molding in which major compaction of sand is accomplished by compressive force, which should exceed 100 times the rectilinear mold surface area in square inches.
The slip displacement signals detection and creation of the required compressive force adequate to the object mass provide the conditions for the correction of the gripper trajectory-planning algorithm, identifying an object mass as a variable parameter (Kondratenko et al.
We can say that the material hardness is the most important, followed by the compressive force factor (P), the tool diameter factor ([D.
The key difference, Houchois says, is that the tool is held "slightly" open (he declines to specify how much) during the initial resin injection and subsequently closed using compressive force.
The oscillations are probably caused by a compressive force acting on the thick part of the parison between the clamped end and the thin portion of the parison that inflates first.
