Tier 4 emissions standards have forced OEMs to use available HP more efficiently, driving the demand for more efficient hydraulic control systems. To help system designers achieve the same level of performance with less pump flow and pressure drop, HydraForce has introduced over 100 high-pressure products and a unique line of cartridge valves that combine multiple valve functions in a single cavity. Attend this webinar to learn about the benefits and application of these efficient hydraulic valves.

What’s behind every great robot? A great motor or even multiple motors, for starters. It also involves the bearings, cables, drives, and controllers, and in some cases, linear actuators. Whether your robot is being deployed on a factory floor, in an operating room, or in one of the now-famous drones, it’s these technologies that serve as the differentiators. In fact, robotics can be in applications that range from the very coarse to the very fine. For that reason, the types of motors and other components must also vary widely.

We’ve all stared at a bills of material wondering if we could find a lower cost replacement, or remove unessential parts to skim down the list. But, is face value the real indication of total cost of ownership? Are there better ways to influence return on investment? Whether you are building a single machine or a complex system, productivity, flexibility, and lifecycle of the control system will directly impact your overall cost. Join us in this webinar to learn about the latest trends in PLC’s and PAC’s, and how they can help you make the best choice for your control needs.

Drop Simulation in Electronics: Design Robust Products While Shortening the Time to Market
Date: 8/28/2013
View archived webinar
Drop Simulation is the most common and important means to evaluate electronics product drop performance. However in many cases, it takes too long to conduct drop simulation, making it difficult to fit into today’s ever-shrinking design cycles. Altair understands this challenge and has successfully assisted many world leading electronics companies to leverage its simulation and automation technology to speed up the laborious manual tasks associated with FEA model setup, drop analysis set up, post-processing and reporting.

Everywhere you turn, there’s a new application for LEDs. They’re dominating in the automotive space, they’ve taken over in commercial applications, and consumer applications are just starting to hit their stride. As we are well aware, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and in this case, there are tradeoffs associated with LEDs, more than you may be aware of. In this webinar, we will look at the different types/colors of LEDs that are available, and what the various tradeoffs are associated with each. Then, we will get into the integration process—how do you actually design these devices into your system to maximize all their advantages.
