USB Interface Simplifies Sensor Connection
Features 10/21/2010 Post a comment Industrial systems designers and integrators are learning that the familiar USB connection can simplify sensor platform architecture, reduce single-to-noise ratio issues, and ease sensor validation concerns.
Robotic CNC Designed for Radioactive Vessel Repair
Features 10/21/2010 Post a comment Executing sophisticated geometries of motion, while performing between up to 50 machining processes 30 feet under water to a tolerance of plus or minus three thousandths of an inch were key requirements for this robotic CNC machine tool.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
