Marking of engineered assemblies, components and materials with identification numbers and other data is an essential element of modern manufacture. Until now, this has involved at least a small interruption in the production process for every unit marked.
Laser Metal Sintering is a material processing technique which considers binding (sintering) pulverized particles (powder) together due to a diffusion of its micro-melted outer layers into each other produced by a pulsed laser source.
Nobody knows exactly what additional requirements will emerge in the field of connected manufacturing, but my personal feeling is that laser systems are a great way to prepare for whatever lies ahead. There are simply so many cases where if anything can do it, its a laser!
Unitronics' line of AC Servo Drives & Motors changes the traditional approach to motion control. They are simple to set up and painless to program. Unitronics Servos simplify implementation of motion applications while minimizing complexity and reducing development time. Some of the easy-to-use features in this new line include implementing motion control easily with ready-made motion code, embedded diagnostic tools, and automatic communication setup.
