SAD servo motors range from a fraction of a kW to several 100 kW. One of the company’s units uses a single Cm3 connector from ITT Cannon instead of two traditional round connections. Targeting servo motors below 100 mm with flange sizes of 60 × 60 mm or smaller, the connector provides variable shielding from a movable metal wall that separates the signal and power portions. In addition to being smaller than conventional circular connectors, the single Cm3 weighs 50 percent less. The unit’s design provides a simple connection for fast installation and low maintenance.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
