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.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
