Intelligent Motors Equipped with Microcomputers

The idea of using built-in computers to control motors without the aid of external equipment is not a new one, but it has taken until now for computers with the level of performance necessary to control motors in real-time to become small and cheap enough for this idea to become reality.

The ix Industrial Interface Opens New Opportunities

As miniaturization advances, devices get smaller and smaller, as do the circuit boards upon where the sockets are mounted. As a result, the connector's dimensions of 7 mm to 11 mm become comparatively large and the product designer must ensure sufficient space is allocated.

Ultra-Precision Motion Control - Key Considerations for Supplier Selection

As the demand for more and more exacting motion control increases across numerous industry sectors, it is vital that before investing, customers are informed enough to make sure that they select the right solution for their specific application.

The 6 Latest Trends in Direct Drive Motor Technology

Despite the maturity of the machine tool industry, allowing for many advancements in engineering design over the span of decades, a machine is still limited by what the builder is able to implement.

Choosing Gears Best Suited for Your Application

Q&A with Ronald Valenzuela, Engineering Manager, KHK Gears: As technology advances, we have seen a shift into using much finer pitch gearing. We have certainly come across more exotic gear designs in the Mechatronics field that require a much smaller design..

Linear Actuators with Programmable Positions

Some robot movements can be realized with rotors, but most of them work better with linear actuators. If you have drives with programmable positioning, you can create a precise machine useful for a number of tasks.

Tips for Reducing Error When Using Eddy Current Measuring Techniques

Inductive eddy current technology is an extremely versatile non-contact method for measuring an object's position, distance, or vibration.

Galling a Serious Issue in Manufacturing - but There Are Solutions

With potentially disastrous effects resulting from galled fasteners seizing or even being subject to a fatigue breakage, the manufacturing industry players are advised to counter this threat.

Guide to Lead Screws and Integrated Motor Assemblies

Q&A with PBC Linear: With lead screw accuracy up to 3x tighter than industry standard screws, and backlash control up to 4x better than traditional solutions, performance is improved and overall life extended.

Taking an Independent Path: Strategies for Low Risk Sourcing of Components in a Constrained Market

Industrial control equipment industry looks to independent distributors to address chronic shortages in the availability of electronic components

Aqua Massage Manufacturer Improves Linear Motion Control with Custom Lead Screw Assembly from Kerk

The company needed a linear motion solution capable of guiding and translating the machine's spray water jet assembly, which moves back and forth along a linear shaft.

Automation Design Tips: Transferring with Rollers

As technology advances, components become smaller and more compact which requires specific automation techniques and maintenance. Transfer mechanisms require high versatility in its capabilities.

Filtering out Common Mode Noise in Congested Environments with Monolithic EMI filters

Although monolithic EMI filters initially cost more than equivalent ordinary capacitors, our customers tell us that their cost is a fraction of the cost of a common mode choke alone.

Carbon and Ford Expand Collaboration to Digitally Manufacture New Durable, End-Use Parts

The parts include Ford Focus HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Cooling) Lever Arm Service Parts, Ford F-150 Raptor Auxiliary Plugs for a niche market, and Ford Mustang GT500 Electric Parking Brake Brackets.

Three Reasons Why Manufacturers Should Work With Secondary Sourcing Partners

These secondary sourcing partners might only be temporary or assume small roles in regular production, but the advantages manufacturers realize from having a reliable backup readily available are substantial
