Engineers and scientists from all areas and disciplines can get a quick overview of the power and benefits of modeling, simulation, and virtual prototyping thanks to a series of free multiphysics tutorial CDs from Comsol.
Analog Devices Inc. offers the third edition of its popular applications guide, “A Designer's Guide to Instrumentation Amplifiers.
The Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group from the Bosch Rexroth Corp. is offering a free Packaging Machinery OEM Productivity Kit available upon request. The tri-fold brochure and resource CD presents a multitude of solutions to help packaging OEMs implement lean manufacturing techniques.
Sick Stegmann Inc. has created a comprehensive and interactive online catalog of 2D and 3D configurable product models using SolidWorks 3D PartStream.NET.
The Project: Establish a system that ensures a maximum and consistent electromagnetic field exposure and SAR for the cells within the waveguide. The Solution: Utilize electromagnetic simulation software to optimize the overall effectiveness of the research model.
The Project: Identify a method with which to determine whether or not chest compressions are being performed properly on a CPR mannequin. The Solution: Attach cable extension transducers (i.e., string pots) to the chest area to measure the movement of the chest compression being applied.
While traditional positioning systems offer an adequate motion control solution for devices such as OR tables and hospital beds, they create other concerns related to their effect on the surrounding environment.
The M5100 pressure transducer is designed for use in industrial applications that require high long-term stability despite harsh environmental conditions. It is a high accuracy device priced competitively for OEM applications.
The QCI-L6 is a linear motor with full servo control, ideal for high acceleration moves—up to 8.4 G. The technology required to servo a rotary step motor is not that much different than that required to servo a linear step motor.
The System 273 binocular and 373 trinocular microscopes offer 25% greater magnification, 15% greater field of view, and 20% greater working distance than traditional models. They also provide a total optical magnification of 270X. The System 373 provides a digital magnification of 400X.
GammaTag is a read/write RFID tag that’s safely sterilizable by gamma radiation. It provides reliable electronic identification and data storage of single-use/disposable components used in critical process industries.
This 5.7 in. diagonal 640 x RGB x 480 (VGA) TFT-LCD with white LED backlight is suited to applications that require a high quality TFT display. The OSD057VGA will support up to 18-bit (262 k) color. It allows simple image rotation via digital user inputs.
Aimed at medical parts manufacturers, the FZ12KS Tilt vertical machining center incorporates a swivel head spindle for single setup machining of complex parts. It has a swiveling range of -10° to 115°, and it only takes 0.5 seconds to swivel from 0° to 90°.
This company can turn 3D CAD models into real plastic parts in as few as three days. Injection molded in a choice of engineering-grade resins, these plastic parts are ideal for functional testing, bridge tooling, or even short-run production.
Custom fabrics are becoming available to medical device manufacturers for applications where they traditionally were not an option. New capabilities and technologies provide designers with choices that offer unique advantages. This article explores the impact of this emerging materials revolution.
