Selecting the Right Drive System – Costs & PerformanceVendor:Gates | Type:White Paper | Category: Motion Control/AutomationSelecting the proper drive system can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the drive.This paper examines the performance and cost advantages of your three major options: roller chain, V-belt and synchronous belt drives. Configure fixed components for machine assembliesVendor:MISUMI USA, Inc. | Type:White Paper | Category: Motion Control/AutomationThis white paper details Misumi USA Inc.’s CAD configurator, a device which enables design engineers to configure a component before downloading the native CAD file. The file can then be modified so that it may be inserted into CAD assemblies. Misumi USA Inc.’s CAD configurator frees engineers from drawing components themselves.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
