Evolution of the Need for Expeditionary Manufacturing

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.

What's the Difference Between a Servo Cable and Motor Cable?

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?

Ultra Motion Actuators Help Measure The Moon At 70,000 Feet

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.

Design and Operation Features of a BDC Motor Controller

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 Developing Portable 3D Printing Factory in Shipping Container for Department of Defense

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.

How to Choose the Right PCB Manufacturer

While keeping a budget in mind is necessary for any business decision, there are places you shouldn't cut corners-and that is especially true for PCB and electronic manufacturing.

Use Reliable Isolation ADCs to Effectively Control Three-Phase Induction Motors

Three-phase induction AC motors produce mechanical power for almost 80% of industrial applications by providing extremely high efficiency and environmentally rugged characteristics. Effective control of these motors is needed to tackle heavier load problems .

More Efficient Bending With Parallel Shaft Gear Motors

Compared to the classic hydraulic solution, these electric drives offer numerous advantages in terms of robustness, safety, and operating convenience. They are also easier to maintain and run more efficiently to save cost.

When and How Should I Select a Braking Resistor?

When designing a motor control system, it is not always clear if a braking resistor is required and, if it is, how to proceed in selecting a braking resistor. This post is intended to simplify that process so it is clear when and how to select a braking resistor.

Binders M12A Male & Female Cable Connector with Plastic Threaded Ring

The Polyamide material exhibits very good chemical resistance and is especially oil resistant. A reduced lead-time and cost over our standard metal threaded nut is always good for buyers and planners.

5 Design Considerations for Constant Force Springs

Design is the foundation of any engineering project, even at the component level. Once engineers have established the desired function of a device or machine, it's important that they develop the right components to carry out that function.

LK HORIZONTAL-ARM CMM INSPECTS NEXT-GENERATION AUTOMOTIVE FIXTURES

RapidFit modular gaging and holding fixtures with 3D printed locators provide major benefits in vehicle manufacture.

Overcoming Pitfalls When Measuring Thin, Parallel Optics

Driven by the demand for smaller and smaller consumer products and semiconductor devices, manufacturers require thin planar optics for an array of applications.

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.
