The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 3 component servo
drive from Rockwell Automation provides machine builders the ability to better
match the needs of manufacturers without the complexity of traditional servo
solutions. Offered in models as small as 50W, the drive provides the
flexibility to tailor axes to a machine's actual power requirement, which will
minimize system size and cost. Its compact design makes the drive ideal for
machines that require less than 1.5 kW and up to 12.55 N-m of instantaneous
torque, such as intermittent form/fill/seal machines, indexing tables, medical
devices, laboratory automation equipment and semiconductor processing.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
