The SMTBD1 digital servo amplifier with CAN Bus communication is for systems where the drive is to be more fully integrated into the control system. The SMTBD1 features a compact design, and CAN Bus provides data security. Parameters can be modified on-the-fly, and with CAN Bus, the system can send commands and data over the network to each individual drive and interrogate them for any errors that may have occurred.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
