Pittman brush-commutated and
brushless dc motors can be equipped with tailored solutions to satisfy
particular application demands through custom options. Motors can be customized
with spur or planetary gearboxes to increase torque and decrease speed;
incremental optical encoders for precision motion-control applications to
supply accurate feedback on position, velocity, acceleration, and direction;
and modified motor shafts for designs as necessary with a flat, journal, cross
hole, keyway, slot, groove, gear, pulley, or any combination.
Designers can tailor motor
voltage, speed, continuous torque, and other parameters, and specially
configure motors to accommodate unique design envelopes or mounting challenges
and otherwise adapt to an application.
The Pittman product line is
engineered to provide dc motor solutions to power a wide range of equipment and
devices across industries, including data storage, medical and biotech, automation,
pumps and compressors, and others.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
