WYCO(reg) PTR2100(TM) pole-tip recession measurement system improves process control in thin film head manufacturing by analyzing pole-tip recession/protrusion on magnetic-head sliders. The WYCO PTR2100 repeatedly measures pole-tip recession on nano and pico sliders at production speeds. Built for manufacturing environments, the high-throughput WYKO PTR2100 measures pole-tip recession location-to-location in under 3 sec at the bar level and under 7 sec at the tray level, including load/unload, positioning, focus, measurement, and analysis.

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
