XY Shake Table by H2W Technologies to Simulate Earthquakes


The XY Shake Table was manufactured to simulate earthquakes. When coupled with earthquake simulation software (customer supplied) the stage will accurately simulate any earthquake.

Due to the high force capability of this stage, it may also be used in a pick and place environment where the payloads are heavy.

PBC Linear Designs Custom Hinged Mount for De-stacking System Provides enhanced pivoting alignment for MT linear actuators


Automation is a continually evolving way to improve efficiency, especially on the production-line. While system integration can incur high start-up costs, manufacturing lines running 24/7 save thousands in annual labor costs. This was the case for a newly designed bottle cleanser packaging and sorting conveyor using PBC Linear actuating systems in a palletizer/de-stacker. However, during the early stages of testing, the actuators were found to be loaded beyond their rating, and damaged when the system misaligned by out of position product pallets. This resulted in machine shutdowns and potential safety concerns. PBC Linear's hardworking engineering team was brought in to assess the problem and produce a workable solution for the de-stacking mechanism.
