nip roller
Background Having proper nip roll alignment is crucially important for high-volume printing press machines. Five minutes of run time on misaligned rolls can result in thousands of dollars in damaged product. Depending on the size and location of the nip, taking nip measurements can be difficult...
robotic-assembly-app-image
Background Most electronic assembly processes are performed by high-precision robotic systems. These systems are tasked to properly move and insert delicate components onto a circuit board. As a result, the assembly robots must be checked frequently for changes in alignment that can occur with...
Cereal-Sealing-Bar
Background The food packaging industry must always maintain high standards for their packaging seals. These standards are to protect the consumer from tampering and/or receiving damaged product. Sealing bars are used to properly seal two parts of a package in a high temperature environment, and...
Contact-Lens-Machine-Alignment-Application
Background Ultrasonic welding machines are used to create uniform seals, which are vitally important for containing products like contact lenses. In the ultrasonic welding process, thermoplastics are bonded together through the use of heat and applied force. A damaged seal can result in leaky...
Background Many rheumatologists perform joint assessments by manually exerting pressure on an area with their thumb or two index fingers to elicit a response. It is generally assumed that fingers will "blanch" at around 4 kg/cm 2 of force, which is then used as a benchmark for the physician to...
PressureQC InLine
Background In high-throughput processing – such as in bottling and food packaging industries – there are several twists, turns and other impacts a product encounters on its way to completion. Quality control personnel take precautions to make sure their systems are running as smoothly...
Tekscan's joint analysis system can be found in clinical and research settings worldwide. See how the Cleveland Clinic BioRobotics Lab used the K-Scan™ to evaluate dynamic joint pressure...
DTR Therapy software images: Before and After treatment DTR Therapy uses T-Scan™ digital occlusal analysis data to measure the impact of excursive movements on the occlusal plane. The goal is to identify contacts that may be overly engaging during excursive movements, a problem that can lead...
Force Feedback Glove for Motorbike Riding
Background As motorbike riders control the majority of a bike's functions with their hands (steering, adjusting the throttle, and using the front brake or clutch), hand dexterity performance is crucial for safe riding. Even minor changes to control inputs can cause a rider to lose control of their...
Background Following leg injuries and surgeries, it is critical for patients to reduce weight-bearing activity on their recovering leg and to gradually increase the weight they put on that leg over time. Taking these precautions helps bones and tissue heal correctly. Physiotherapists often help...
