SENSORS: Novotechnik introduced the TX2 series of position sensors with stroke lengths up to 300 mm. The new sensor is sealed to IP67 and has an 18 mm diameter housing size.
The TX2 series offers outstanding linearity to 0.05 percent with resolution better than 0.01 mm and is equipped with pivot heads to provide a large angle of free movement up to ±12.5 degrees.
TX2 series is available from stock with 8 stroke lengths from 25 to 300mm and an operating life of more than 50 million movements. The TX2 series is also designed to withstand adverse environment conditions such as humidity and dust as demonstrated by the IP rating.
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
