How to chose between hydraulics and electromechanics
Features 10/19/1998 Post a comment When selecting power mediums, engineers face a multitude of choices. Often, however, the first step is to choose between two broad categories of technology--hydraulics and electomechanics. Here, engineers from the same parent company describe the application niches for each technology, and offer rules of thumb for the gray areas in between.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
