|Helical Products Company Launched into Space (Again)!|
|Mars Science Lab incorporated Helical flexible couplings and machined springs|
Helical Products Company, Inc. is proud to announce that several of its parts are present on NASA's latest space explorer, the Mars Science Laboratory 'Curiosity' rover. Helical's engineering team designed and manufactured both flexible couplings and machined springs for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, working closely with JPL's engineers on these precise, custom designs.
Among these parts is a custom flexible coupling to be used in the Vibration Mechanism in the Sample Acquisition & Sample Processing and Handling (SASPaH) subsystem at the end of the Robotic Arm.
The Curiosity Rover is also equipped with several Helical machined springs. These particular devices are used as a locking latch in the rocket deploy pivot mechanism.
|White Paper: Integrated Linear Motion Systems|
High performance and reliability with reduced size, cost and time-to-market
Mechanical linear motion technologies that provide high performance and reliability,clean operation and low maintenance include: linear motor, linear slide with rotary motor, and stepper motor linear actuator
Integrated linear motion systems provide accurate positioning, high speed, and long life with low maintenance. Integrated product combines a stepper motor linear actuator with mechanicals and electronics to form a single, compact system. It also delivers the added benefits of reduced machine size, lower cost and shorter time-to-market.
