Siemens Industry Inc.'s Speed Connect is a
new quick release mechanism that protects against vibration shakeout on its
Motion-Connect line of power and signal cables. Motion-Connect cables are offered
as standard on all Siemens motion control systems. The
Speed Connect release makes installation and changeover, even in very
restricted space applications, fast and easy. No tools are required; just a one-quarter
turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors.
All Siemens Motion-Connect cables are system-tested to
guarantee performance in any motion control system, whether in a Sinumerik CNC machine
tool or Simotion general motion control application. These cables are also compatible with Sinamics
drive systems and all families of Siemens induction, direct drive and
servomotors. Motion-Connect cables are fully shielded to prevent EMC noise
emissions and protect the motion control system from ambient environmental
noise. Motion-Connect cables are certified to CE, VDE, UL and UL/CSA
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.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
