To help you focus on the actual true cost of ownership, part 2 of our series will examine the strengths and weaknesses of these technologies and evaluate their specification parameters and what they mean....More
A harbor seal’s whisker is shaped so that it can detect turbulence from its fleeing prey without being influenced by the seal’s own movements. How does this work in underwater sensor technology?...More
Machine Design was invited out to tour Bosch Rexroth’s Open House, which highlighted its Smart Factory Industry 4.0 technology. The system communicates with engineers and plant managers via touchscreen interfaces, and also with other machines that are connected within the network.
The next round of products includes a thermal interface material that also provides EMI shielding; a fiber-optic, linear-positioning sensor that doesn't impede MRI imaging; and a stepper-motor driver IC that reduces noise when operating at low motor speeds.
