NEAT AirBeam enclosed linear motor-driven air bearing system combines linear servomotor technology and an ultra-smooth air-bearing way in a single structural beam. The system is for use in computer-to-plate systems, photoplotter, wafer scanning systems, and factory automation applications. The linear motor and modular, serviceable moving cable set are mounted inside the main beam, minimizing particulate generation. The integral NEAT linear motor allows carriage speeds of up to 2m/sec and accelerations to 1G.

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
