Made for applications in packaging, robotics, medical instruments, assembly, semiconductor manufacturing, engraving, inspection and pick-and-place, IMS' newest NEMA 42 high torque brushless motor has fully integrated drive and control electronics, promising a high starting torque, built-in regeneration circuitry, high positioning accuracy, stability at low speeds, and no dithering at zero speed. It allows greater inertia mismatch and doesn't need tuning. Options include input voltage of 120 or 240 V ac, two motor lengths, internal or remote encoder, control knob for manual positioning and integrated planetary gearbox. It comes in both step and direction (Microstepping) and fully programmable (Motion Control) versions, with aluminum housing for interfacing to standard industrial circular connectors and cordsets.

Because of the increasing ubiquity of wearable technology, it would be easy to think that design of wearable devices is routine and involves common design and engineering knowledge. Missed efforts in development will be remembered once the devices are used in the field
This grab-bag of new fasteners and adhesives work with a range of materials they can attach to, as well as a wide variety of applications. Several are for use in consumer applications, such as wearables or other compact electronic assemblies, and some of the adhesives have extended service temperature ranges and cure at room temperature.
As governments, associations, and NGOs around the world seek to protect consumers, national and regional standards are becoming mandatory, challenging manufacturers and making testing and certification necessary for any product developed and brought to market.
