Flexbeam-2(TM) beam-style flexible couplings are one-piece aluminum components which incorporate spiral cuts to accommodate angular and parallel misalignment and axial motion. The one-piece design and cut pattern ensure zero backlash and minimal wind-up. The couplings incorporate two sets of two spiral cuts and are for precision applications, especially those that use delicate components such as encoders and tachometers. The small bearings on these components make low radial forces essential to longevity and continued high performance.

These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
