Dynapar announces the next-generation
NorthStar HSD35, the mill-duty version of the vector-duty HS35R hollow shaft
encoder. The new HSD35 utilizes the
same core technology as the HS35R to provide maximum uptime with features such
as a 400g shock rating, optional 100C temperature limit and enhanced sealing. Additional
mill-duty features include solder-less connectors for easy field service,
stainless-steel shaft hub and dual-split clamp to resist common mill chemicals,
and optional dual isolated outputs for redundancy. Like its sibling HS35R, the
new encoder is also RoHS- and CE-compliant.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
