What is Simulink?

Simulink, an add-on product to MATLAB, provides an interactive, graphical environment for modeling, simulating, and analyzing of dynamic systems. It enables rapid construction of virtual prototypes to explore design concepts at any level of detail with minimal effort. For modeling, Simulink provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for building models as block diagrams. It includes a comprehensive...

TYPES OF PULLEY MOUNTING

Timing Pulley Classification by Mounting Beginning with the most inexpensive options, good for fitting into tight budget scenarios where the load is not a big constraint, set screws provide security for only the lowest loads. These use friction of the set screw against a set screw flat on the shaft for their holding power. With the addition of a keyway, they can provide a mounting solution for low...

ACME vs Trapezoidal Threads

ACME and trapezoidal threaded products appear similar at a glance. In fact, these two threads were developed around the same time and are more similar than different. What is the difference between ACME thread and trapezoidal thread, and which should you choose? Until the late 1800s, square threads were in common use for heavy loads and motion transfer applications. There were two problems with sq...

The world of Timing Belts

Timing belts are parts of synchronous drives which represent an important category of drives. Characteristically, these drives employ the positive engagement of two sets of meshing teeth. Hence, they do not slip and there is no relative motion between the two elements in mesh. Due to this feature, different parts of the drive will maintain a constant speed ratio or even a permanent relative positi...

RC Servo Spline Chart

How many splines does your RC Servo have? Here is a listing to help you to select the right horn for the RC Servo. Pay close attention to your servo, some servos are rebadged servos from other brands. This is the case of the Hobbico CS-170 that uses 24 splines (Hitec) instead of 25 splines traditionally found on Hobbico servos. Ace/Thunder: 25T Airtronics: 23T Blue Bird: 25T Cirrus: 25T Duratrax: ...

Silicon or Silicone Rubber?

Silicon or Silicone, is it the same? Silicon and silicone, it may come as a surprise that they are two very different things. Silicon is a naturally chemical element, whereas silicone is a synthetic substance, so we say Silicone Rubber not silicon rubber. Silicon readily bonds with oxygen and is rarely found in nature in its pure form. You've likely seen silicon as silicon dioxide or silica, bette...
