Model 7429AC servoamplifier uses digital PWM commands from PC-bus type motion controllers. The controllers' digital PWM commands provide direct control of motor operation. Switching action in the amplifier's power IGBT bridge circuit controls motor torque, speeds, and positioning. The amplifier develops 20A peak and ±10A continuous on ac-brushless servo motors up to 2.5 hp, and runs on 32V ac @ 50/60 Hz power. Applications include pick-and-place, automated assembly, and X-Y tables.

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
