Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) offers a number of different silicone gel products for isolating vibration in UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) applications. Surveillance UAVs make use of cameras to obtain visual intel in military and other applications. Because there is significant vibration caused by turbulence and the propulsion of the system itself, vibration damping like that offered by AAC's silicone gel products is crucial for obtaining smooth camera footage.

AAC offers silicone gel spring mounts, pads, tapes and chips, but the bolt mounts are of particular interest for UAV applications. Identified as the V10Z61MS, V10Z61MA & V10Z61MB series, the mounts have a low profile design to minimize image distortion. They have a temperature range of -40°C to 200°C (-40°F to 392°F).

At Advanced Antivibration Components - AAC, we provide products exclusively related to the elimination of vibration, energy absorption and protection of components and devices from shock and possible destruction. AAC offers a wide range of shock & vibration isolation products, which include stud & nut type mounts, base plate fastened mounts, wheels, leveling & foot mounts, suspension mounts, spring, steel mesh & cable mounts, bumpers, channel mounts, bushings & grommets, pads & tapes, and couplings. These products are stocked in different materials, including rubber, neoprene, urethane, Sorbothane®, stainless steel mesh and springs. Many are suitable for use in extreme environmental conditions. Of special interest is a complete selection of silicone gel stud mounts, pads, and foam sheets, as well as paste-type and sheet-type thermal gel.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
