ThinGap Motor Technologies (www.thingap.com) has unveiled the new
TG2300-Series NEMA 23 Frame Brushless dc servo motor, which features real-time
errors of less than five counts per 81,920 counts per revolution (0.006
Such low error count has generated much positive feedback from attendees of
the National Manufacturing Week in Chicago, says Richard Noling, the company's
President and CEO.
Developed for factory automation applications, the motor also features peak
torque of 574 oz-inch for quick acceleration and deceleration of heavy loads at
up to 7,200 rpm, thanks to the company's patented high-efficiency electromotive
coil technology, eliminating the need for gearbox reduction in many

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
