While the idea of surgical robotics may once have seemed impossible, this technology is available for many medical procedures today. At SEPAC, our team is constantly tracking the evolution of medical technology, enabling us to provide […]

Clutch and brake selection varies depending on the industry and specific application requirements. As such, there are a variety of clutch and brake options available based on the requirements of the machinery with which they will be used. In any use case, however, determining torque requirements is essential for selecting the appropriate clutch or brake. […]

This past weekend and for the first time in nine years, NASA astronauts were launched into space from US soil. This in and of itself was an achievement given all the time and effort that goes into this undertaking, but the successful lift-off from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, FL was not the […]

Industry professionals commonly categorize actuators as either fluid power (i.e., hydraulic or pneumatic) or electromechanical (i.e., electric motor driven) actuators. While hydraulic actuators have long served as the standard choice, electromechanical solutions are increasingly taking their place in a wide range of industries. Some of the sectors in which the transition from hydraulic to electromechanical […]

Clutches and brakes are electromechanical devices used to transfer rotary motion or hold a load in place. Although their actions are relatively straightforward, there are a surprisingly large number of variables to consider when choosing the most appropriate clutch or brake for a particular system. Taking these considerations into account in the early phase of […]
