A new line of optical comparators from the 14" CC-14 horizontal benchtop to the 30" side-screen CC-30S optical comparator. These new optical comparators are designed for fatigue-free operation in harsh machine shop environments.
The Dynafile abrasive belt machine grinds, deburrs, blends, and finishes normally inaccessible areas on metal, plastic, fiberglass and other composites.
A new 3U VPX Load Board meets the VITA 46/48 power specifications for VPX and aids in locating hot spots within the enclosure.
Medical device molding with design and mold-making support are capabilities provided by Sil-Pro Silicone Professionals, an ISO contract manufacturer specializing in LEAN silicone molding and silicone extruding for the medical industry.
RS linear drives are now available with five linear pitch settings and adjustable axial thrust. This permits varying pitch/thrust combinations until optimum settings are achieved.
A unique preloading scheme avoids changing wear characteristics, allowing orders of magnitude increase in stage life without any degradation in stage performance, and allows stage operation over a wide temperature range.
Using a fully-equipped Class 7 (10,000) cleanroom, the company converts materials such as electrical grade papers, films, coated cloths, laminates, and tapes for the most demanding medical applications.
This snap action switch, the TS2 series, is a subminiature switch featuring surface mount termination. Its small package size is designed for higher reliability applications and, because of its unique SMT design, will be popular on many board-level applications.
The 5 x 3.2 mm M Series TCXO/VCTCXO is designed for use in instrumentation as well as other applications requiring tight frequency stability in a small package. The use of analog temperature compensation allows for a holding sub 0.28 ppm holdover over multiple temperature ranges.
This line of standard ST-12C counterbalanced hinges provides consistent, high-torque performance in a compact package, enabling equipment operators to lift and position hinged components with less effort.
The PMT320 model offers a repeatability of +/- 1 micron, excellent straightness, run-out accuracy, and travel distances from 600 to 1,500 mm. The stage has a 320 mm wide die cast base profile and the 1,000 mm stroke stage weighs 70 kg.
These miniature plastic components are die-cut using die-less digital equipment to produce parts with +/- 0.005 in. precision and narrow cross sections (1:1 ratio to part thickness) which can be supplied plain or with adhesive backings.
The GE-25 Series contains general purpose, low cost, highly reliable 25W power supplies. Units have an 88-264 VAC (125-373 VDC) input range, and the single output voltages of 3.3 to 48 VDC have a +/-10% adjustment range. Efficiency averages 81% and GE-25’s no-load power consumption of <0.
