igusÂ® now offers a bus cable for the industrial serial field
bus CC-Link system. The data transmission properties of Chainflex CFBUS.035 conform to CC-Link
specifications and have been tested by the global coordinating office, CC-Links
Partners Association (CLPA), in Japan.
shielded bus cable's structure and materials have both been optimized to meet
the highly dynamic conditions found in cable-carrier applications. With an
abrasion-proof, TPE outer jacket, a gusset-filling extruded inner jacket and an
optimized short pitch length, millions of bending cycles are possible in
cable-carrier systems. CFBUS.035 has an outer diameter of 0.33 inches (8.5mm),
a DESINA-conforming sheath color, and is available pre-assembled with any
standard industrial connector.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
