Motorsoft (www.motorsoftmotors.com) has unveiled a dynamometer kit for teaching students and engineers the operating characteristics of various precision electric motors and electronic drives. The basic kit comes with three interchangeable test motors, including a PM dc, a 3 phase ac induction, and a PM brushless motor along with a calibrated PM dc generator as a load. All motors, except for the PM dc, are fitted with a 1,000 line optical encoder, couplings, and motor bases to enhance interchangeability.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
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.
