The latest in the Trust Automation drive line, the TA330 offers configuration for three-phase dc brushless servo motors using Hall Effect sensors, three-phase ac brushless motors with sinusoidal commutation, single-phase dc brushed servo motors in bridged mode, and brushless linear motors. Its zero cogging, lack of torque ripple, and smooth motion make it perfect for "very high resolution" inspection systems, metrology instruments and medical applications. With a 24-V input for powering logic and bias supplies, it has low electrical noise, yet runs at 150V, 900W continuous (2700W peak), and offers on-the-fly torque control changes. An internal logic and bias supply option is available, too. It measures 14.9 (37.9 mm) x 7.7 (19.5mm) x 4.7 inches (11.9mm)
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
