The 90-Line Beam Bender turns the reference beam from the Microgage 2000 and turns it exactly 90 degrees, making it ideal for squaring machinery and equipment, setting and adjusting parallel tracks and rails, aligning web rollers, idlers and wheels, checking gantry travel and position, monitoring and adjusting machine tools, and assisting in geometric alignment. The existing laser is square to the incoming beam within 0.0006 degrees, about 0.001 inches over an 8-ft distance. The aluminum block, anodized-coated housing allows several adjustments, which can rotate the existing beam through a full plane. It can be adjusted with a precision rotary mount, and positioning the 90-Line is easy with its 2-axis stage mount.
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
