Indramat's DKR05 Intelligent ac Vector Drive provides the dynamic performance of a servo drive while reportedly delivering 30 times the torque. It meets the high performance needs of newspaper printing presses, converting machines, high-power machine tools, and high-horsepower engine and transmission test stands. The drive comes in models offering 150, 200, and 300 hp, at motor speeds to 2,700 rpm, and connects directly to 380/460V ac power lines, with regeneration back to the three-phase powerline. DKR05 uses the fiber-optic digital SERCOS interface to provide high-speed, noise-immune, real time between the control and digital drive, which further reduces wiring.

The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
