The control unit, called the DS2R, uses proportional valve technology to provide several advantages over its predecessor.</p> <p>The DS2R controller attaches directly to the hydraulic axial piston of the secondary control unit to aid in motion control. An A4VSO axial piston provides open-loop torque control or an A4VSG axial piston provides closed loop torque control.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/products/electrohydraulic-controller-offshore-winching" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/products/electrohydraulic-controller-offshore-winching#comments Products Wed, 28 Jan 2015 20:02:00 +0000 45771 at http://machinedesign.com X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Made Simple with a Graphene Barrier http://machinedesign.com/news/x-ray-photoelectron-spectroscopy-made-simple-graphene-barrier <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), ELETTRA (Italy), and Technical University of Munich have designed a protective graphene membrane that will allow X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) at ambient pressures.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/news/x-ray-photoelectron-spectroscopy-made-simple-graphene-barrier" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/news/x-ray-photoelectron-spectroscopy-made-simple-graphene-barrier#comments News Fri, 23 Jan 2015 21:51:00 +0000 45721 at http://machinedesign.com ISO STEP File Lets CAD Programs Share Smart Files http://machinedesign.com/news/iso-step-file-lets-cad-programs-share-smart-files <div class="node-body article-body"><p style="font-size: 13px;
