Gear drives couple the high torque capability of TRUE Planetary(TM) gearheads with the positioning accuracy of ball screws and the mounting flexibility of Quick Mount(TM) bearing support blocks. With the ball screws, there is 90%-plus efficiency when converting rotary motion to linear actuation and a choice of Precision or Precision Plus inch and Precision Plus metric ball screws. The Quick Mount bearing support blocks offer high-capacity angular contact bearings arranged in a back-to-back configuration for high stiffness and compact, low-profile design for space savings in tight installations.

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.
