Midwest Motion Products (www.midwestmotion.com) has introduced a dc servo motor that comes with a 3 V/Krpm analog Tachometer to provide positive, linear feedback signal for closed-loop servo applications at a rate of 3V dc per 1,000 rpm of rotation. Measuring 2.14 inches diameter by 5.96 inches long, the motor is rated for 30 oz-inch of continuous torque and 180 oz-inch peak. In addition, it is capable of delivering 80W of continuous output power at 5,000 rpm.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
