Velmex's line of assemblies come with brand new compact optical encoders, made for precise positioning or gauging in manufacturing and testing. The screw-driven slides measure absolute travel distance and position with an encoder, offering 1-micron and 5-micron resolutions. The LED digital readout has an RS-232C interface, zero reset button and an inch/metric toggle switch. The stages come in 2.5, 4, 6 and 9-inch cross-sectional widths for loads up to 300 lb, and many UniSlide models offer travels ranging from 1 to 84 inches. Modular UniSlide Assemblies can be put together to make multi-coordinate systems.
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.
