With so many various types of M12 connections and options to choose from, such as pin count, pin positions, connection coding and IP ratings, the selection process can seem rather overwhelming. How do you know which connections are right for your specific application?
EDM - could be classified as one of the most useful in a modern shop. Also called a spark machining tool, the device uses sparks, or electricity, to cut through materials. It uses thermal energy to make the cuts by removing material.
Due to the working environment in the factory or machine shops is humid and dusty, the panel PC should be resistant to water and various substances. Besides, the panel PC was required to be easy to integrate, maintain and upgrade.
For this particular project, Dan Nobles and Slice Engineering decided carbon fiber nylon filament would be the best option. Engineered for its intense durability and stability, a carbon fiber nylon material would be capable of handling the high-heat experienced in an engine.
Gartner found last year B2B buyers now only spend 17 percent of their time meeting with potential suppliers and vendors when deciding a purchase. Virtual selling via digital channels and commerce to price to quote (CPQ) techology is predominating.
This article discusses how legacy manufacturing enterprises can harness the latest technologies, to optimize factory operations without having to ramp up infrastructure investment.
Before looking at the problems that vibration causes when using a laser interferometer, and the ways that its effects can be overcome, it is worth briefly describing the way that laser interferometry works.
Throughout history, there have been industrial applications that require a load or force measurement within a system that involves either linear electric or hydraulic smart actuators.
Cables with the proper shielding, i.e. foil plus braided shield or semi-conductive fleece with foil and a braid shield, prevent the VFD system from radiating electrical noise that can interfere with the surrounding networking, wireless communication, and industrial devices.
This article will be expanding on the different types of feedback devices in VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) and Servo applications, as well as some of the typical applications in which they are utilized.
There is a demand signal to produce a machine capable of Metal printing on the front lines. Phillips has developed a Hybrid technology that adds a Wire fed Direct Energy Deposition head to a Haas machine.
Electrical engineers often work with motor cables and servo cables, which both supply motors with electrical energy and have a nominal voltage of 600/1,000V. But what exactly are the differences between the two cables?
Two Ultra Motion Servo Cylinders were successfully employed to control the telescope's elevation and azimuth throughout the flights. The ARTEMIS system had to operate flawlessly at 70,000 feet and in ambient temperatures as low as -60°C.
The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.
ExOne has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to develop a fully operational, self-contained 3D printing "factory" housed in a shipping container. Now under development.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
