When it comes time to choose DC electric motors for use in products or systems under development or those about to go into mass production, design engineers typically base their final motor selection on three key factors: power, speed and shaft configuration.
Of those three key motor output factors, Bosch contends that it is the availability of different shaft configurations that may very well be the most important item on the design engineers’ motor specifications checklist.
“Having access to a wide range of shaft configurations can be especially helpful to design engineers during the early stages of product development,” says Kenn Langosch with Bosch industrial motors. “It gives them an opportunity to consider each shaft design’s effectiveness for working in tandem with another component. The design engineer’s choice of shaft configuration for an application can also result in time and cost savings during the assembly phase of production.”
To address this need for a range of shaft configurations, the Bosch i-Business Group offers more than 500 different part numbers for 12-24 volt Bosch DC electric motors. Bosch’s range of DC electric motors includes brushless and brush-type motors. Nominal power ranges for these motors is from 0.22 W to 2.38 kW, with nominal torque from 2 Ncm to 7 Nm.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
