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.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
