Built for oxygen concentrator compressors, this motor series maintains long battery life and smooth operations, even at slow speeds. It can run on a 24V battery, car accessory socket or standard 110 V ac electrical outlet. Its higher inertia reduces torque pulsation losses, meaning it can run longer under battery power. OEM customers can use smaller, lighter oxygen concentrators with this motor, and the TG2300's stator has no iron, eliminating magnetic attraction and making it easier to assemble.

Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
