New AKM gearmotors from Danaher Motion combine the torque density of AKM servomotor technology with Micron TRUE planetary gearheads in a single, factory-integrated solution. These gearmotors offer one component to mount without the need to manage the adapters between the motor and gearbox. Alignment issues are eliminated because each system is combined, tested and qualified at the factory. A complete lineup of gearmotors provides factory tested combinations, so there is no need to match the motor and gearhead by the user.
The single unit design provides ready-to-mount system units, and factory integration and testing eliminates assembly errors. TRUE planetary gearhead offerings include both in-line and right angle solutions ranging in frame size from 40 to 220mm and ratios from 1:1 to 500:1.

By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
