Flight of the Loonie

S

ince 2007, the Canadian dollar has been on a bit of a roller coaster ride. In 2002, the loonie was at a low of US$0.62 but grew to a record high of US$1.09 in November 2007, only to fall back to US$0.77 in May 2008. More recently, the dollar has hovered around parity and is expected to stay there through the rest of 2010 and into 2011. Traditionally, this kind of volatility in the Canadian dollar has been considered a destabilizing factor for the manufacturing sector, especially when the loonie gained against the U.S. greenback. However, in March, the Conference Board of Canada released a study (Dollar Volatility: Who Should Care?) suggesting that, contrary to conventional wisdom, manufacturing is actually one of the least vulnerable sectors when it comes to currency fluctuations. The report argues that since manufacturing, along with mining and oil and gas extraction industries, have higher degrees of internationalization, they have greater opportunity to hedge against currency fluctuations. To make this determination, the report graded industries based on four indicators (export intensity, import intensity, machinery and equipment investment and Canadian investment abroad) to identify the degree to which 27 industries rely on international transactions to conduct business and the nature of that internationalization. Industries with low levels of exposure to the dollar—because of their high degree of internationalization—include non-metallic mineral product manufacturing; computer and electronic product manufacturing; plastics manufacturing; primary metal manufacturing; and mining and oil and gas extraction. On the other hand, service industries, such as transportation and warehousing, utilities and retail and wholesale trade, are the least adapted. Unfortunately, the headline grabbing findings of the report mask the financial realities most Canadian businesses face. For large manufacturers with ample operating budgets that sell into and source materials from multiple countries (e.g. Bombardier, Research in Motion), the report may well hold true. But for the vast majority of Canadian manufacturers, who fall into the vaunted Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SME) category, the truth is that many don’t have the resources to play the “hedge your bets” game. In addition, according to Export Development Canada research, small firms don’t typically set up sophisticated currency hedging mechanisms either because they seem too complicated or simply out of ignorance. The situation is even worse for manufacturers who source materials locally but export principally to the U.S.; every penny the Canadian dollar gains against U.S. currency is another two-fold reduction in profits as manufacturers may pay more for materials but earn less on the sale. Instead of leading people to believe that Canadian manufacturing is in good shape, the report should have focused on specific ways this important yet vulnerable sector of the economy can take advantage of the same internationalization strategies as their much larger brethren.

The Virtual Build Model-based machine design trims time, cost and complexity. By Robert Steele and Tony Lennon

M

otion control applications are becoming increasing challenging with higher performance, lower weight requirements and increased functionality. Meeting these challenges often requires complex control algorithms, which require more expertise and longer development time. In addition, the software usually isn’t tested until hardware prototypes are available which leads to many errors that require extensive re-coding. As a result, a new approach has evolved that combines machine design with motion control under a model-based design umbrella to reduce design and development time. In this approach, the mechanical engineer designs the mechanism in a CAD system, brings the mechanism into the model-based design environment and develops complex algorithms without writing code by dragging and dropping function blocks from a mechatronics toolkit. The engineer simulates the mechanism in the virtual environment. When the engineer is satisfied with the performance of the model, he or she downloads code to the motion controller and tests, measures and runs diagnostics in a real time operating system (RTOS) environment for continual retesting and adjustments. This approach enables improvements in machine design in the virtual environment to optimize machine performance in motion. A small team, or even an individual, can use it to design complex motion control applications in a fraction of the time and cost required by the traditional build and test methods. The traditional approach to developing complex control systems involves first writing text-based specifications that define the requirements for the control systems in as much detail as possible. These specifications are passed to control engineers who design a control strategy that is then implemented in C/C++ code. The control systems development process may be hindered by the difficulty of finding people who are experts in control systems algorithms and also proficient programmers. It’s also very easy to make, and very difficult to detect, mistakes in hand-written code, especially during the early phases of the development effort. Chances

are that the handwritten code may only make sense to the person who wrote it, which may create communications difficulties in larger projects. Building Blocks Model-based design approach, however, makes it possible to develop an executable specification that incorporates the key elements of the control logic and mechanical and electrical design. A system level model is defined using blocks that represent mathematical operations between input and output signals. For example, the model may contain a block representing a motor that takes a voltage input and converts it to an output torque. As the design process continues, additional detail can be added to increase the fidelity of the model, such as by adding noise in the voltage, temperature and magnetic saturation effects, etc. Engineers can further increase model fidelity by replacing approximate mathematical representations of the mechanical system with blocks that represent mechanical bodies and linkages translated automatically from the CAD file. Engineers can use the model to simulate the operation of the control system in software. This approach makes it possible to investigate a wide range of alternative design concepts without investing time and money in writing code or building hardware. Until recently, a limitation of model-based design has been that the pre-configured blocks used to construct the model were available only for standard control algorithms such as PIV and PID. This meant the technology could only be used on less sophisticated control systems. In addition, code could not be automatically generated for leading-edge hardware. More recently, graphical building blocks have been introduced that make it possible to model far more sophisticated control systems and download them to the RTOS environments used on the most advanced motion control systems. These standard function blocks reduce the need for specialized knowledge of software programming expertise, enabling mechanical engineers who understand the underlying application to take control of the design process. The function blocks have been optimized to provide efficient and predict-

With model-based design, engineers can build a control system model, debug and test it in software, and compile and download the model to the motion controller.

Design Check In addition, plant model output parameters, such as motor drive and positional feedback, can be used to evaluate control performance. Physical parameters such as mass, length and capacitance that cause instability can be identified and adjusted. Engineers can also predict the move performance, ringing and settling time, motor and drive sizing of alternative control systems concepts prior to the prototyping phase. Test cases can be embedded in the model to check each design iteration against requirements and find mistakes when they can be easily and inexpensively corrected. Once the control strategy has been developed and tested in simulation, engineers convert the code algorithms from continuous (analog) to discrete (digital). Code is automatically generated for the motion controller. This eliminates the need for systems engineers to be code-writing experts, prevents the introduction of coding errors and saves time. The result is that sophisticated custom motion algorithms can be implemented in a fraction of the time and cost of conventional methods. As OEMs continue to reduce resources and increase demands for higher performance, new approaches to efficient, harmonious and economical mechanical and software design development become necessary. By using industry-leading solutions available on the market today in this creative manner, OEMs will find their mechanical engineers quickly transforming into Renaissance men capable of bringing highperforming machines to market with much less support from algorithm development and testing specialists.

able motion control performance on the latest generation of motion controllers. Blocks are now available that support complex gearing and following methods; gain switching; vibration control; notch, resonator, low-pass and bi-quad filters; sophisticated multiple input multiple output (MIMO) plant models; velocity, acceleration and friction feed forward; and observers as well as the ability to monitor response at any point in the control loop. The control block set also allows multi-axis line-shafting, following and gearing to be performed quickly with the control block set. Equipped with data capture, logging and visualization tools, the function blocks allow mechanical, I/O and software data integration into one measurement environment. This approach enables machine designers to take advantage of emerging accelerometer feedback devices. This in turn enables mechanisms to be designed with reduced weight and stiffness, resulting in lighter, faster, less expensive and more precise machines.

Motion on Rails Factors to consider when choosing a crossed roller bearing.

I

ncreasingly, as machines demands greater linear precision, the crossed roller bearing is becoming the bearing of choice. They work like ball bearing slides, except the bearings housed within the carriage are cylinder-shaped. The rollers crisscross each other at a 90° angle and move between the two parallel guides. The rollers are between “V” grooved raceways ground out of the guides. While the concept is simple, there are a number of not-so-obvious factors to consider when evaluating roller bearings. Load Capacity: Resin vs. Metal Cages Roller-to-rail contact is key to determining load capacity. Of course, rollers provide a larger contact area than ball bearings and, since the rollers usually do not recirculate, they are all carrying the load, which produces greater rigidity as well as higher load capacity than ball bearings. Resin cage retainers, such as in this linear guide, fit around the roller so the whole shape can be in contact with the load.

Load capacity also correlates with contact area. So, the amount of space between the rollers is a major factor, making as much as a 250% difference. Rollers in a resin cage can be closer together, affording at least a 30 to 58% increase of the contact area as compared to a metal cage. However, resin can have out-gas – causing problems in high vacuum environments. On the other hand, metal cages are less expensive and can be all stainless steel. Therefore they can be used in high temperature or medical applications where there is a lot of water and rust potential. Travel Length With crossed roller bearings, the whole rail assembly has to be twice as long as the stroke, because the rails move in opposite directions. (However, a few crossed roller linear guide products have recirculating crossed rollers that are not criss-crossed – having four circulations with opposite roller orientations.) With a resin cage, stroke length on a given length rail can be longer because the cage can be shorter for a given load. Wear For motion control applications with extremely fast acceleration March/April | 2010

and deceleration (at dimensions ranging from 30-600mm lengths and 2-12 mm rollers) endurance can be 150 million cycles. In crossed roller bearings, without anti-cage creep mechanisms, cage creep may necessitate the replacement of guides and readjustments. This affect often occurs as a result of high acceleration and uneven preloading, as well as orientation. Accuracy and Deflection Crossed rollers’ larger contact area provides consistently precise movement and nonrecirculation has less frictional resistance fluctuation making them extremely quiet and smooth. However, the crossed roller is less forgiving of mounting surface inaccuracies because of the linear bearing’s rigidity and the way that they are designed. Often, the bearings can be specified with mounting tables honed to exacting standards such as ultra precision, where 2 microns is the maximum allowable deflection. Fit/Interchangeability A cage prevents the wear of ball-to-ball or roller-to-roller contact. Whether metal, resin or some other material, the cage alters, somewhat, a crossed roller bearing’s dimensions. Also affecting interchangeability is the design of stoppers as well as the anti-creep mechanism. External anti-creep mechanisms often obviate interchangeability, making internal mechanisms are much more accommodating. Cage Creep In non-recirculating linear components, the retainer floats between the rails and can drift (or creep) from center position. Cage creep is damaging because every time it creeps, rolling elements are not rolling; instead, they are slipping and causing metal-to-metal wear. As the roller cage creeps away from center, it will begin to restrict the slide’s travel. It also will creep over time if a full stroke is not being used, especially when mounted vertically. If, after the retainer drifts, the full stroke is once again used, the retainer will hit the endstop of the rail and be forced to skid in order to center itself again. This action requires a strong motor and can damage the retainer, the rollers and the slideway. With higher preload, it is even more difficult and damaging to skid the cage back in place. www.design-engineering.com

Studs that roll into depressions in the raceway is one method for prevented cage creep

www.design-engineering.com

Anti-Cage Creep Mechanisms The term “anti-creep� is used to describe the method of eliminating any slippage of the retainer holding the crossed rollers between the two V-grooved rails of the slideway. It can be used in any mounting direction and with lower momentum motors such as linear motors. Anti-creep devices include rack and pinion mechanism; an external attachment made of plastic gears outside of the rail; or a metal gear inside of the rail. One anti-cage creep mechanism, the Studroller, uses a roller with round balls studded around its surface. By placing studs in the center roller and machining a path along the rail, this retainer won’t slip. It also has the smoothest tracking motion and therefore is quieter. It is suitable for high acceleration, vertical mounting and uneven load distribution. Since the Studroller uses a ball bearing, as opposed to a gear or exterior control, its cost is almost half the cost of other anti-creep devices plus, there are no redesign costs to replace a standard slideway.

The bearings are subjected to high loads, temperatures varying from very low to medium (-40 ºC to 120 ºC) and very slow speeds including oscillating movements and standing-still conditions. The often static conditions in combination with vibrations can lead to false brinelling, where the lubricant is pushed away from between the contact surfaces resulting in corrosion. Additionally, the trend to install wind turbines offshore adds extra requirements for corrosion protection and low temperatures. This grease is based on refined synthetic base oil (PAO), and complex lithium thickener, which makes it most suitable for lubricating bearings operating in temperatures ranging from -40 °C up to 120 °C. www.skf.ca

Icy Control Canadian-made robotic submarine helps Canada assert arctic sovereignty. By Treena Hein

I

f you felt a surge of national pride during the Olympics, here’s something new to root for: a made-in-Canada engineering marvel battling extreme arctic conditions, all in the name of protecting Canada’s sovereignty. In mid-March, a small robotic vehicle made by Port Coquitlam, BC- based International Submarine Engineering Ltd. (ISE) was flown up to farthest reaches of northeastern Canada, reassembled and released through a hole cut in the ice. Using multiband single-beam sonar, it’s collecting data on the contours of the seafloor, so that a digital terrain model can be created. Canada will use such data to submit a claim to the United Nations over a vast area of arctic territory by a 2013 deadline. The “Project Cornerstone” sub (and the twin spare) have cost Canadian taxpayers $5 million, a small percentage of the $90 million Canada has dedicated to the claim since 2004. ISE, however, has been in the game of underwater tech much longer than that. Since the mid-1970’s, it’s grown to become a member of an elite group of global high-tech submarine-makers. ISE has sold more than 250 vehicles in 20 countries, but this project is as challenging as any in the past. GPS can’t be used for navigation because of surface ice, so the sub uses temperature, depth and other sensors – in addition to its all-important programming – to control itself and navigate. “The sub is given a series of mission files with tasks,” says project manager Tristan Crees. “Some are geographic tasks—where it goes to one point and back or moves through a grid of an area—and some are nongeographic tasks, such as controlling payload sensors.” On Target The sub is gone for up to four days and 200 km at a time, nerve-wracking for ‘proud poppas’ such as Tristan. “Obviously, the engineering team is more comfortable with short missions and is very concerned with getting the vehicle back,” he smiles. “However, Natural Resources Canada and Defense Research Department Canada need a lot of data, which means taking more risks.” How ISE achieves complex control over a vehicle that will leave, collect data and return as directed has much to do with its Automatic Control Engine (ACE) software. The sub’s main March/April | 2010

In March, BC-based ISE’s Project Cornerstone robotic sub submerged beneath the polar ice cap to map the seafloor in support of Canada’s territorial claim to the arctic.

operations involve sensing its position and heading, and making corrections to get back on target if it’s off, in terms of thrust, roll, yaw and pitch. The sub matches its course to what it has been programmed to have, using sensors that detect currents combined with a French-made inertial navigation system – gyros that measure spin of the earth and provide a heading and accelerometers to give position over time. This is combined with actuators and software in between. The sub’s other main operation is detecting any of 82 possible faults (problem scenarios), such as a high temperature reading or an instrument ceasing to give data, says Crees. The sub has 12 possible responses for each of the 82 scenarios, which range from ‘ignore’ to ‘surface immediately.’ Getting the sub to return to mission start/end point would be fairly straightforward if that point were a land-based dock, but when it’s a hole in an ice floe, this point will have drifted. An acoustic homing beacon, detected by the sub’s hydrophone array, does the trick. However, Crees points out “This only works www.design-engineering.com

We can communicate acoustically with it only for 4 km, so it’s completely on its own most of the time.” As with any robot, when the sub has seemingly done something unexpected, it usually turns out that it has actually done what it has been told to do. “For example, in a task we call ‘final approach,’ the sub homes in on a point and stops,” says Crees. “But during testing in this case (in Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet), we later realized that we’d also given it a speed and travel time, and the point that instruction took it to was inside the radius Aided by its various sensors, the that we’d given it as the point to stop, so it sub’s Automatic Control Engine didn’t go anywhere.” software allows it to follow a Ultimately, getting the hardware and programmed route and return to software to work together so that the sub base without direct control. would accomplish any given mission file was all about modularity. “We reconfigure rather than recompile to cause other issues. “It’s like a problem with a robot hand our code when we make changes, so that the software is built versus a human hand,” says Crees. “You can disconnect a in modular layers,” Crees says. “Similarly, the sub’s sensor robot’s hand fairly easily and fix it or put a new one back on, systems are also independent of each other.” but a human hand is totally integrated, and therefore much This means that if something goes wrong with a wet cable more complex to fix.”  DE from a sensor coming into the dry pressure hull, it’s not going www.ise.bc.ca

THERE'S A BETTER WAY TO PROTECT AGAINST HYDRAULIC HOSE FAILURE.

THE FIRST TRUE PROTECTION IN LINE-OF-SIGHT HYDRAULIC APPLICATIONS. A burst or pinhole leak in a hydraulic system can cause serious problems – especially for anything or anyone located within a three-foot line-of-sight. Personal injury. Fluid burns and injection. Fires and explosions. Electrical shock. Mechanical failure. Now, Gates has engineered the first sleeving system specifically designed to protect operators, equipment and the environment from the hazards of catastrophic hydraulic hose failure. The LifeGuard™ line-of-sight sleeving system (patent pending) provides containment of 6,000 psi bursts and 3,000 psi pinhole leaks at 212°F for up to five minutes. Escaping fluids are enclosed by the unique, doublelayer, incredibly strong LifeGuard sleeve. Fluids safely escape at hose ends via specially designed channel clamps, creating a noticeable spill for fast hose failure detection. The sleeving has MSHA flame-resistance approval. No other system provides this level of protection and safety. For more information, visit www.gates.com/lifeguard-oemoh

Live Wire BC’s Live Line lessens hazard of electrical line work.

I

t’s a sobering fact that many of the support structures holding up the world’s electrical grid are nearing the end of their serviceable life. After 50 or so years, wooden electric poles and corresponding cross supports inevitably rot and need replacement. When they do, power company linemen get in an insolated bucket and are hoisted by a crane as much as 50 feet in the air to repair those structures. However, many times the equipment used to hold the energized electrical lines in place while the work is done is less than ideal, creating a potentially hazardous environment. “With electricity, you only get one mistake,” says Larry Ewert, product designer for Live Line Solutions, a manufacturer of insulated crane and digger derrick attachments for energized transmission and distribution line maintenance. “There have been fatalities using equipment that was inadequate. Our products help to keep linemen out of harms way.”

Live Line Solution’s Insulated Conductor Support Jibs (ICSJ) and LinePro HA keep linemen safe and increase productivity by incorporating radio-controlled, hydraulic-actuated articulation.

Among their products, the company’s PowerArm series of Insulated Conductor Support Jibs (ICSJ) temporary support energized ultra high voltage power lines to allow faster and safer insulator and tower replacement/relocation. In addition, the company’s LinePro HA aerial devices are configurable as a Live Line bucket truck/aerial platform device, an energized conductor support, pole setting vehicle and a material-handling crane. “We’ve used to use a multi-pin hole for the buckets and the supporting conductors,” Ewart says. “Linemen used to set the position on the ground, lift it up and hope they had the right angle. If they guessed wrong, they’d have to bring it all down and reset it, so it was time consuming.” A former vehicle technician with BC Hydro, Ewart recogMarch/April | 2010

The Helac rotary actuator’s sliding-spline concept produces output torque to 215,000 lb-in at 3000 psi.

nized the safety and productivity issues involved in the traditional multi-pin method and designed an improved aerial device that includes hydraulic actuation so the company’s bucket truck/aerial platform devices could be repositioned in the air, by radio control. According to Ewert, precise platform positioning without drift increases safety and allows for various degrees of articulation. For the hydraulic actuation, Live Line Solutions relies on Helac Corporation’s L30-215 helical rotary actuator, which is responsible for the articulation and boom positioning. Ewart says Helac’s actuators provide jib storage and quick deployment not previously available. “We can’t accomplish the same thing with cylinders because they’re too cumbersome,” he says. “Because we get the same articulation out of a compact package, the Helac actuator is more efficient for what we do.” The actuator functions as a rotating device, mounting bracket and bearing support. The large circular shaft flange with drilled and tapped bolt circle is used to attach the actuator to the jib boom. The characteristics of the helical rotary actuator make it ideal for this application. The L30 series offers high load carrying, high torque output, compact configurations and corrosion resistance in a cost-effective package with 180-degrees rotation. Its sliding-spline operating concept produces output torque to 215,000 lb-in at 3000 psi. At the same time, the actuator measures 23.6 inches with a 10 in housing diameter and weighs 790 lbs. Because the spline teeth remain engaged at all times, loads are equally distributed over the teeth, resulting in increased shock load resilience. Large integral nylon composition bearings support heavy radial, moment and thrust loads without additional external bearings. Sealing occurs against smooth cylindrical surfaces, effectively eliminating leakage and enabling selected positions to be held without drift. The helical rotary actuator assists Live Line’s aerial devices to be safer and much more efficient. The load holding capability allows for safety with either the aerial work platform or the insulated conductor support application.

Fluid Power Roundtable ’10

Canadian fluid power leaders discuss the challenges and potential remedies for the industry. DE: Has fluid power seen a decline in manufacturing over the last five years or is it simply experiencing the same fall off as any other technology due to the recession? Casey Samaroo, Customer Solutions Manager, Festo Canada: I think it is both of those factors. Certainly with the price coming down on electrical technology, you would expect to see a decline in f luid power technology. But the economic downturn is also responsible for a reduction in the business. Campbell Tourgis, Central Region Manager for Wainbee Limited: I would agree, but within Canada, it’s our experience that there has been a fundamental shift in where fluid power and even motion control applications are pertinent. So in addition to the economic downturn, it’s also due to the Asian and South American experience of companies looking to reduce labor costs. On the pneumatics side of our business, which has been replaced by other technologies like lower cost hydraulics and electro-mechanical, it’s the smaller and more labor intensive applications that have moved off shore. Samaroo/Festo: People have also become more aware of the total cost of ownership of pneumatic systems. It’s not just the cost of the actuators, for example, but also the cost of producing air and the inefficiencies that come with that. More and more companies are paying attention to how much air they are consuming.

“There are 73 million cars built on the planet every year and nobody knows what they are going to look like in 40 years. If you had hydraulics in there, it would certainly be a big gain for the industry.” Pat Jones, owner of Consolidated Fluid Power Training Ltd. and Technical Services Manager with Strictly Hydraulics

March/April | 2010

Tourgis/Wainbee: And, as more companies are adopting the ISO 14001 standard, we see a lot more thought go into which hydraulic fluids are being selected. A lot of new and purportedly environmentally friendly hydraulic fluids are being developed, but they also add to the cost structure. DE: What are the major technical hurdles the fluid power industry needs to overcome? Dr. Richard Burton, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Saskatchewan: The change in technology that has to occur is an increase in hydraulic system efficiency. Properly designed hydraulic systems are pretty good, even given the inefficiencies associated with the pumps and the motors, etc. The trouble is we all end up throwing in a control valve or counter-balance valve or something, which reduces the efficiency of the system significantly. The new technology is looking at better ways to capture some of that energy over a longer period of time, either through accumulators or better designed circuits that can transfer energy from one part to another. That’s going to be very important because we are seeing improvements in efficiency on the electric side but we have to see the same improvements in the hydraulic side. Samaroo/Festo: For pneumatics, I don’t think it’s any one thing but a combination of little things. Because pneumatics was traditionally a really cheap technology, companies would oversize actuators, valves and everything on the pneumatic size of their design. We have to get back to engineering these components so they are properly sized, which would bring a reduction in air consumption. Also, using lower usage power coils on the values, for example 5 watt coils versus the traditional 20 or half amp coil. It’s also important to look at air system in plant to reduce losses. If you do all of that, you can bring the cost of pneumatic systems down significantly. Tourgis/Wainbee: To add to that, system design is most important right now. A big initiative in Europe is to reduce pressure requirements. The compressor only needs to run when it is relatively inefficient. Just like in hydraulics, there is a large part to play for clients in North America to look at www.design-engineering.com


FluidPower “Until universities realize the need for fluid power as an undergraduate subject on the same level as electrical drives, I’m afraid the education of engineers will be restricted to learning on the job.” Dr. Richard Burton, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Saskatchewan

their compressor system, have air audits performed to reduce leaks and then have a proper engineering scope to look at what they are trying to do. More power is no longer better. Burton/UofS: I think the issue of hydraulic fluids is very important. Years ago, there was a large thrust toward fire resistant fluids in mining industry in Western Canada, and there was work done on water-based and synthetic fluids. I think the challenge there was that you could get these environmentally friendly fluids but the biggest problem was the sealing: How do you make the seals compatible with the new fluids? I think that is something that is going to have to occur. Pat Jones, P.Eng., owner of Consolidated Fluid Power Training Ltd. and Technical Services Manager with Strictly Hydraulics: The big unknown is what the time frame will be for getting this research done and getting more efficient components into the design stream; we are still designing hydraulic systems today with components that are 30 years old. There is a lot of newer technology in proportional and servo control, for example, but the basic pumping systems are old technology in a lot of cases. There’s a need for more compact systems as well, especially when you look at the footprint of a hydraulic system plus a reservoir in a manufacturing facility compared to an electric drive with the same horse power. Samaroo/Festo: From a pneumatic point of view, there are many engineering tools that engineers can use but people still continue to use rule of thumb instead. If you look at a pneumatic cylinder, for example, there isn’t any significant cost increase up front to move from a size 50 mm to a 63 mm bore cylinder. However, when you look at what it will cost you down the road, then you start to see the costs really add up. From an overall big picture, the machine builder is trying to reduce his costs as much as possible but, at the end of the day, that machine will cost the end-user a lot more to operate. DE: From an education perspective, do the engineering departments in Canadian universities need to re-introduce fluid power to the curriculum or does the impetus need to come from industry first? Burton/UofS: There aren’t a lot of universities where student engineers are being taught fluid power. The University of Saskatchewan is one of the few universities in North America that has a full undergraduate course in hydraulics. It's the www.design-engineering.com

most popular elective in our program because students know that this is an applied area that they are going to be able to use when they go out to work. So it’s not a question of declining interest from engineering students; it’s just that many of them never had this type of education to begin with. Jones/Consolidated: If you take it a step further—to the graduate and PhD level where we need engineers to do the research to provide the new innovation—it’s not going to come if we don’t have an undergraduate program that’s universal across Canada. Burton/UofS: I agree. A number of years ago, a few people at Sun Hydraulics, through the ASME, tried to convince universities to integrate fluid power into the undergraduate program with some success. The seven universities involved in the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power, for example, are gradually integrating the subject into their undergraduate programs. It’s still a battle for them though, because they are competing with the traditional core courses, while fluid power is considered a stand-alone, application-type subject. Until universities realize the need for fluid power as an undergraduate subject on the same level as electrical drives, I’m afraid the education of engineers will be restricted to learning on the job. Tourgis/Wainbee: From the distributor standpoint, it’s a painful process to hire a student that you want to see grow within your organization but then have them come on with little to no practical application experience. The challenge is that computers are very sexy right now and fluid power isn’t. We need to find a way to spice it up so young talent wants to get into these courses. Jones/Consolidated: The National Fluid Power Association has a video that really speaks to that issue. I think that video needs to be put in front of department heads in mechanical engineering sections across Canada. They are really missing a key aspect of what hard-core mechanical engineering is. It’s a complicated thing to do fluid power design right, especially when you don’t have it as an undergraduate course. Burton/UofS: On the upside, there are a growing number of universities in Canada that have graduate programs in fluid power. The University of Manitoba, for example, has “To improve pneumatic system efficiency, clients need to look at their compressor systems, have air audits performed and then have a proper engineering scope to look at what they are trying to do. More power is no longer better.” Campbell Tourgis, Central Region Manager for Wainbee Limited

a unique laboratory that integrates hydraulics, pneumatics and electronic controls. I think that is how it is going to have to develop: getting people in at a graduate level and then have those people offer electives. That's when you get the engineers interested. Another important component is having the equipment available for undergraduates and a lab for hands-on experience, because fluid power training can't be done virtually at a computer. Tourgis/Wainbee: It’s critical that students actually touch the product and know that it isn’t going to explode in their hands. There is too much focus on the theoretical and not enough on the application.

DE: What non-traditional markets should the fluid power industry be moving toward? Tourgis/Wainbee: Whereas mass manufacturing has gone, Canada still has a wealth of natural resources and fluid power has always had a positive roll to play there. Mobile hydraulics is one area, but all technologies still have room for growth. If you look at biometrics and life sciences, pneumatics can play a very large part in that as well. Burton/UofS: One thing that is going to have to grow is the integration of hydraulics and pneumatics with micro-computer systems. Asia, the Scandinavian countries and Europe in general have jumped ahead and North America has been trying to catch up. We have to keep pace and make all possible use of the benefits of the computer industry to make our systems better. Jones/Consolidated: There is also a lot of research being done in “green” energy. If fluid power can get a foothold in energy production or an automotive hybrid hydraulic drive, I think that is the way to move forward. There are 73 million cars built on the planet every year and nobody knows what they are going to look like in 40 years. If you had hydraulics in there, it would certainly be a big gain for the industry. DE

The Cutting Edge Digital Displacement pump represents the latest in hydraulic technology. By Pat Jones, P. Eng.

A

new hydraulic pump and motor being manufactured by Artemis Intelligent Power Ltd. may well represent the cutting edge of hydraulic design. The Edinburgh, Scotland-based company has developed a microprocessor-controlled pump and motor which they call Digital Displacement® technology (DDT) that works on a similar principle as a variable valve timing (VVT) engine with inlet and exhaust valve control. If you are not familiar with this technology, it allows the engine’s computer control to optimize intake and exhaust timing—essentially the air flow characteristic of the engine— for different conditions (i.e. maximum torque or maximum fuel efficiency). Along with other advancements, this allows engines to be smaller, create more power and be more fuel-efficient. In a Digital Displacement® system, the cylinders are positioned radially around an eccentric with solenoid valving around the periphery.

Variable valve timing technology, when applied to a hydraulic pump, is a real advancement in a number of areas when compared to conventional pumps. In particular, a variable flow can be achieved from a fixed-displacement, constant-RPM pump and the design of the pump/motor has very low friction and leakage losses. Using a fixed displacement radial piston pump/motor design, DDT controls each individual piston’s inlet and outlet using high speed solenoid valves. A sensor on the shaft of the pump tells the microprocessor how to control the position of the shaft. The controller then determines which valve to open, when to open it and for how long based on output requirements. When low or no flow is required, an individual cylinder may have its inlet valve held open all the time, basically drawing fluid in and then pushing it back to the inlet. The amount of output flow from the pump is determined by how long the inlet valve is signalled to close, therefore allowing fluid to be pushed through the outlet valve and out of the pump. With the microprocessor control and fast acting valves, the response of the pump to changing flow/pressure requirements is much faster than conventional pumps. March/April | 2010

When used as a motor, a similar control exists for the inlet and outlet valves, except the inlet valve to the motor is controlled to only let in enough fluid for the desired motor speed. Full torque capability would be available instantaneously because the motor is a fixed displacement design. The key advantage of DDT is that, through the microprocessor control, there is complete flexibility on pump output flow and motor input flow, which eliminates throttling losses of conventional closed center-type systems. One pump can supply separate actuators. In multiple pump configuration circuits, the pump can supply several separate circuits, each having their own independent requirements with the output going to either a motor or cylinder.

Idle

Pump

When idling (left in the diagram) the fluid flows in and out around the low pressure valve. The high pressure valve remains closed and isolates the reciprocating cylinder from the high pressure fluid. When pumping (right), the microprocessor closes the low pressure valve to send fluid to the high pressure service.

A particularly interesting application of the technology is as way to increase gas millage. In 2008, the company created and tested a prototype hydraulic hybrid BMW 530i. The big advantage of a hybrid vehicle is the ability to quickly store braking energy in accumulators. Independent testing confirmed that the prototype got double the MPG in city driving compared the car’s regular six speed manual transmission. Overall, including highway driving, the prototype also produced approximately 30% less carbon dioxide. The obvious downside to this system is capital cost, but keeping in mind that this is a newer technology, then the more it is used the cheaper it will become and that will come with time.

In addition, it is the only miniature solenoid valve that is fully compliant with RoHS regulations. www.asconumatics.com

Hydraulic Toolholder SCHUNK Inc. has redesigned its TENDO brand hydraulic toolholders to be able to clamp different types of cutting tools with cylindrical shanks directly in the toolholder. Torque transmission capacity has also been increased by up to 15%. The toolholders feature a steel sleeve surrounded by hydraulic fluid that performs the clamping of the cutting tool. When initializing the clamping process, an internal piston forces the hydraulic fluid into a cavity surrounding the steel sleeve. Cutting tools with different shanks are held with concentricity of less than 0.003 mm run-out. The clamping pressure displaces oil or grease into the TENDO groove in the clamping bore. Clamping areas remain dry and high torque transmission is guaranteed at all spindle speeds. The hydraulic system also absorbs vibrations inherent in the cutting or grinding processes. The results are high T.I.R. accuracy and repeatability of less than 3 microns (0.00012"). As an option, TENDO Hydraulic Toolholders are available with a radial length adjustment allowing micro-precise tool length adjustment to guarantee higher process performance. www.schunk.ca www.design-engineering.com

The CFPA’s Canadian fluid power market survey allows members to benchmark their sales performance by providing valuable information about current hydraulic and pneumatic sales levels and trends. wThe CFPA is also active in the Industrial Careers Pathway initiative that encourages young people to choose careers in industrial distribution and to educate existing distributor staff about business issues in the industrial market. w In Edmonton, the CFPA has worked with the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology to develop a new set of courses to meet the needs of the fluid power industry in that province. w The CFPA is a strong supporter of efforts by the Canadian Manufacturing Coalition to protect the manufacturing industry that is vital to the future of both our country and the association’s membership. w We hold regular meetings to keep our membership informed about developments in fluid power technology, key business issues and the economy as a whole.

Stay in touch with the Canadian Fluid Power Industry Our website (www.cfpa.ca) and E-Blasts let you know about training courses, networking opportunities and the association’s many workforce development intiatives.

If you haven’t already, join the CFPA today!
