Knovel continues to broaden out its online library of technical content with a new subject area aimed at engineers across all industries incorporating optical components and systems as part of their overall designs.
The new Knovel Optics and Photonics area serves up technical background, guidelines, calculations and best practice material to help engineers leverage optical systems and components to improve product designs. The content area launches with 78 reference titles from a variety of notable societies and publishers, including Cambridge University Press, Elsevier, SPIE, Sprinter, Wiley, World Scientific, among others. Among the subject matter covered in Knovel Optics and Photonics are biomedical optics; geometric and physical optics; nanophotonics; signal and image processing and sensors; optical materials; and optomechanics.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Weaned on the relatively effortless connectivity of today’s massive variety of consumer electronic products, automation users in the IIoT will likely not tolerate too many competing, piecemeal standards for long. And the Industrial Internet Consortium is trying to preempt history.
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.
