Introducing GMR Precision Switching Sensors for Airpel® CylindersVendor:Airpot Corp. | Type:Product Brief | Category: Motion Control/AutomationAirpot Corporation offers non-contact electronic switching sensors from Sick, Inc. using state-of-the-art GMR technology. These are the most precise and accurate magnetically activated cylinder sensors on the market.
DST: SOPHISTICATED DIRECT DRIVE TECHNOLOGYVendor:Baumuller, Inc | Type:Product Catalog | Category: Motion Control/AutomationThe high-performance high-torque motors (DSTs) from Baumuller are a powerful alternative to geared motors: they offer high torque at low speeds. The low maintenance, low energy consumption direct drive technology is characterised by compact motor units that offer high running quality, high dynamic response and positioning accuracy in the system.
Clippard Educational Training KitsVendor:Clippard Instrument Laboratory | Type:Training Guide | Category: Motion Control/AutomationClippard's Fluid Power Eductional Kits are designed to help provide a practical understanding of the basic concepts of fluid power. They consist of many components, the same components used in industry today to provide control and work in thousands of different applications. These kits are designed to work in conjunction with the Fluid Power Education Foundation's standard curriculum which may be downloaded at no charge.
High Performance Sensor InterfaceVendor:Enfield Technologies | Type:Design Guide | Category: Motion Control/AutomationThe LS-C30 amplifies the output of bridge-type resistive sensors (pressure sensors, load cells) to ±10 Vdc. This allows low-level sensors to be used with the LS-C10, LS-C41 and C2 controllers.
For over 30 years Precision Filters has been a global provider of instrumentation for test measurements.

Sliding Glass Door ChallengeVendor:Groschopp | Type:Case Study | Category: Motion Control/AutomationUnlike prison doors, some tough doors are pretty. The gearmotors for elegant three and four element sliding doors that lead to your sunny poolside patio had to fit into the 3.5 inch deep space in exterior walls. The toughest job, however, was noise reduction in this residential application. These doors had to open and close smoothly and quietly in sequence.
Custom Manifolds and CylindersVendor:Source Fluid Power | Type:Design Guide | Category: Motion Control/AutomationThe manufacturing capabilities to take your hydraulic schematic and specifications and develop an integrated hydraulic valve manifold to your exact requirements.
Siemens PLM Webcast on Mechatronics Process ManagementVendor:Siemens PLM Software | Type:Web Event | Category:Motion Control/AutomationBuilding intelligence into a product requires software that is integrated with certain functions of the product. The addition of wire harness, electronics and software to an already complex product development process adds new challenges for the product development schedule, cost and quality. All of these different types of data, as well as their change processes, must be managed and shared.

Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
