See it in action

Do you enjoy our Programmable Automation department in the magazine? Then be sure to stop by our “What's New in Motion” department on the MSD site each month to see design in action with video graphics that depict the technology discussed in each issue. Currently, you can see a flying shear motion as a knife blade moves across a conveyor, from our February article, “Target: Web processing.”

This same news department is also home to many online-exclusive news articles and case histories. If you're not receiving our bi-weekly eNewsletters, Motion Monitor, you may be missing out on interesting news you won't find anywhere else. See these articles today!

Finally, stop by our sister site, www.machinedesign.com and see how ESPN.com reacts to an article featuring the new Gladiator football helmet.

Graphics simplify searching

Graphics, including 3D images and cable assembly photos, enhance Cicoil Corp.'s redesigned website, www.cicoil.com. The Valencia, Calif. manufacturer of flat cable assemblies has increased its technical information with new design guides and engineering notes on bend radius, cable life, and other key technical topics. In addition, 3D graphics and photos educate and illustrate the key technical aspects of Cicoil's products. The site describes standard products (bulk, prepped, or complete assemblies) as well as custom-made assemblies with a photo gallery and information for 75 applications. Step-by-step ordering instructions and “Custom Cable Quote Request” make it fast and easy to specify any assembly.
