The DTX digital DC converter will enable designers to prepare and evaluate products for use with the new digital architecture and open-source PMBus communication protocol as well as the industry-standard I2C bus.
Weighing in at just under 62 lbs and able to measure parts 14 in. in diameter and 18.5 in. high, the MMQ 100 is versatile and easy to set up and operate on the shop floor. Mechanical bearings eliminate the need for compressed air.
The upgraded IM481H Plus microstepping driver includes the patented motion control chip that adds active anti-resonance, ultra smooth low speed motion, and precise current control to perform demanding motion control applications. It drives stepping motors up to NEMA size 23. The driver measures 1.
A family of 16-bit PIC microcontrollers has been offered to address the growing performance needs of embedded designers. The PIC24 family debuts with 22 general-purpose devices and offers up to 40 MIPS performance, 16 Kbytes of RAM, 256 Kbytes of Flash program memory, and up to 100-pin packages.
Robots are starting to move into the OR. This article presents an overview of how the pioneers in this evolving field are bringing innovative techniques to surgeons. On the cover: The majority of surgical robots are better described as teleoperators.
Many medical device packaging manufacturers struggle to understand what they need to do to test and certify their packages.
Productivity and profitability are two important goals when working with extrusions. This exclusive report offers advice for producing extrusions that meet dimensional specifications and maintain specified minimum tolerances so that end products can be economically produced.
Performance, manufacturability, safety, and overall cost are crucial when selecting coating technologies, while ease of application, use of hazardous solvents, cycle time, and scrap rates are key when evaluating a coating’s manufacturing process.
The MX12D Series is the next-generation of the MX12P camera, which has a large installed base in medical X-ray applications and is popular for machine vision applications due to its performance using frame transfer CCD technology.
DesignFlex brushes are designed to reduce application costs and weight and add performance to medical products. They use synthetic materials and eliminate the expensive stainless steel typically needed when constructing brushes.
One year ago this month, Medical Design Technology was relaunched as a feature-based publication with a new look, style, and size.
Series 120 solenoid valves are ultra-miniature, magnetically latched solenoid valves featuring high-performance flow-switching characteristics.
This ultrasonic precision press system features a 30/40 actuator mounted on an ultra-rigid support package. The 30/40’s square-welded, steel H-frame style column sets it apart from other systems. The column eliminates deflection so that the machine is repeatable and precise.
Promising high lubricity, superior chemical resistance, and excellent electrical insulating characteristics, PTFE is available to be selectively coated onto small diameter wire components such as pins, needles, and electrodes as well as plain wire.
