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.
Integrated Linear Motion in Medical Device Design
Features 10/13/2010 Post a comment By combining a stepper motor linear actuator with mechanical devices and electronics to form a single, compact system, the integrated stepper motor linear actuator enables reduced machine size, lower cost and shorter time-to-market.
Simulating the Deadliest Warrior
Features 10/11/2010 Post a comment Hit Spike TV show leverages state-of-the-art simulation software and test and measurement technology to pit storied warriors against each other and determining the ultimate winner.
How to Take Device Data Wireless
Features 10/11/2010 Post a comment A behind-the-scenes look at an R&D project designed to create a fast, robust, industrial wireless interface for a 100kHz bandwidth optical encoder and transfer it, in real time, up to 100 meters away and reconstruct the data remotely at 1000 times/sec.
How Engineers Can Use the Cloud
Features 10/5/2010 Post a comment The buzz around cloud computing has been steadily growing for a couple of years now. For design engineers, the key to its potential lies in leveraging its on-demand access, shared computing resources and dynamic provisioning.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
