Aerotech's ABRS series rotary air-bearing stages provide superior angular positioning, velocity stability and error motion performance in an exceptionally low-profile package. The stages have been optimized to minimize stage height and its low profile reduces the effective working height of the system while minimizing "stack-up" related errors. A clear aperture can be used for product feed-through, laser beam delivery, cable clearance or application-specific requirements. Large air-bearing surfaces provide high stiffness and load capacity, producing excellent axial and radial error motions, and tilt error motion as well. The resulting face error motion is a benefit for applications requiring exceptional planar performance.
Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
