Learn about the keys to better hydraulics and consideration for mechatronics in two performance kits from Bosch Rexroth. The performance kits include technical papers, videos or podcasts, apps, technology links, and application brochures.
The Keys to Better Hydraulics This kit is designed to help engineers improve the performance of hydraulic-driven industrial and mobile systems. It includes technology advice, engineering tips, and a host of useful resources on hydraulics technology.
Mechatronics: Top 5 Mechanical Considerations for Electrical Engineers The Linear Motion & Mechatronics Work Kit includes resources on linear motion and mechatronics technology for a broad range of manufacturing and automation applications. The kit was created to help engineers design and deliver linear motion and mechatronics solutions. Bosch Rexroth has developed cross-technology solutions that integrate linear motion, drive control, pneumatics, and structural framing technology.
Bosch Rexroth is offering these kits at no charge. You can register for the kits through the links above.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
