FLUID POWER:ACE Controls’ V-Sensor for detecting damaging unit vibration levels in the automation process are connected to devices such as linear modules, rotary actuators, grippers and more. These units can signal when an industrial shock absorber is nearing the end of its lifecycle, thereby preventing expensive repair, maintenance and downtime. V-Sensors are available in PNP, NPN and analog versions and include various installation adapters. Securing clamps are also available in various diameters.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
