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.
Imagine being able to illegally download a physical product the same way you can with music and videos. That’s basically what’s happening with 3D printing and digital manufacturing, with huge repercussions in the intellectual property domain.
Ford will be the first automaker to commercially use Alcoa's tough & fast Micromill aluminum alloy process and materials, debuting on several 2016 F-150 truck components. Alcoa will also license its Micromill process and materials technology to Danieli Group.
