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.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
