Pepperl+Fuchs' X-Series Pile Driver™ Extended Range Inductive Sensors are available in 12-, 18- and 30-mm diameters and deliver sensing ranges of 5, 10 or 15 mm. The 100-percent stainless-steel housing delivers 20 times more durability than brass and plastic housings. Black Armor™-coated weld-immune models are also available and are capable of providing long-range part detection with full immunity to ac and dc weld fields, and repelling weld splatter. X-Series Pile Driver™ sensors are IP69k-rated to withstand high-pressure washdown cleaning.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
