Transback belting incorporates rubber, urethane, or foam backings bonded to typical flat, vee, multi-vee, or HTD belts. Backings differ in compressibility, color, static resistance, suitability for heat or chemical environments, and other properties. Shapes and profiles, which may include perforations, can also be ground into the backings to conform to user component specifications. Applications include use in the plastic extrusion industry.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
