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.
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.
