The engineers at Industrial Indexing Systems have added a selection of encoder-based motors to their company's line of DeltaPro single-axis positioning systems. These are being offered in addition to the resolver-based motors already available. Available in nine ranges from 400W to 11 kW, the new A Series motors are rated for 1500 rpm and use a 2048 line precision encoder. A Series motors have a higher rotor inertia than standard Delta motors, and combined with the encoder, make them ideal for direct drive servo applications. All DeltaPro single-axis systems are compact, high performance positioning systems that integrate everything required for a complete motion control solution, including a closed-loop positioner, drive, and power supply; motor; operator interface; and cables.

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
The Internet happened.” Those three words spoken yesterday by Marc Ostertag, North America president of B&R Automation at Pacific Design & Manufacturing, now taking place in Anaheim through Feb. 11, continues to bring ever-lasting changes to our ways of life and will undoubtedly transform manufacturing.
