The Linearserv direct-drive linear brushless servo does not feature rotary-to-linear conversion devices or any other components that can introduce inaccuracies and system complexities. The Dynaserv direct-drive brushless servo provides high accuracy and torque without speed reducers, offering fast setting times and smooth rotation at slow speeds. Brochure includes information on these two models as well as the DM 1004 Series Dynaserv motor/drive system. Also included are dimensional drawings, product photography, performance curves, and ordering information.

Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
