Safety Catchers Protect Shutter Operation on Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge

At Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee, a unique solution was needed to maintain position integrity on a series of massive shutters, used to control the flow of neutrons of the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS). This neutron delivery system consists of eighteen 30T and 50T shutters, raised and lowered vertically, 20" and 30" respectively, by stainless steel hydraulic cylinders. The...

Cartridge provides power-off clamping force.

Amforce(TM) Force Cartidge applies constant clamping force in applications for fixtures, tools, and pallets to hold parts and components when pressure lines are disconnected. Heavy-duty disk springs are used to produce high pull force on clamp arms. Hydraulic pressure is used only to unclamp work piece; therefore, hydraulic failure has no effect on workholding capability. Cartridge is offered in...
