Meterdrive linear incremental measuring system features simplified wiring and connections and more robust circuitry. In operation, Meterdrive's stainless-steel perforated tape either passes by an opto-electronic, fixed head detector, or is suspended between two points with the detector head moving. Measurement is available to a resolution of either 0.1 or 1 mm, and can be performed at speeds of up to 10m/sec. Maximum tape length is 250m when using a fixed tape, or 10m when using the spring-loaded unit, which operates like a tape measure.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
