This company's model SP1 string pot features a free release design that retracts the wire safely into the housing if the front connection comes unmoored, a condition Celesco terms a "cable free release." Stainless steel cable winds up along a precision machined spool which can be sized to measure lengths out to 4.75, 12.5, 25, or 50 inches. The cable can be out of line from the housing entry by as much as 45 degrees without diminishing performance. According to Celesco product marketing engineer, Jeffrey Rowe, the SP1 is of particular interest to OEMs as the transducer is good for high frequency use over many cycles. It's compact, affordable, and always in stock. More information on Celesco's OEM solutions program, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/4922-520.
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.
