TOL-O-MATIC's new B3W series actuator is built on the B3B bearing structure, but has a wider belt for longer strokes at faster speeds. Users can replace B3B actuators with this new model easily in most applications. Made for high-wear resistance, repeatable accuracy and high load capacities, it has a patented heavy-duty sealed-bearing system at both drive and idle pulleys, stainless-steel dust band for internal parts protection and a urethane steel belt. Consistent tracking is maintained for the life of the actuator.
Cost, product development rigor, the patient-as-a-user movement, and consumer electronics that include wireless connectivity are just a few hot topics swirling around medical devices. Each brings challenges that create innovation opportunities. If we briefly look at each one, we can see that one common need will be innovation in simplicity.
The supply chain will change significantly over the next 10 years as industry 4.0 technology enhances supply chain performance, according to the 2015 MHI Annual Industry Report, “Supply Chain Innovation — Making the impossible possible.”
