Improved accuracy measurement in linear ball rail system benefits medical applications such as imaging, radiation treatment, and bone density measurement. This exclusive article examines common concerns with traditional rail systems and how this new technology offers a solution to them.
Requiring exceptional precision in their welding processes, medical device manufacturers are looking to laser technology experts to provide a system that enables such a high degree of accuracy.
Corporate culture plays an enormous role on the productivity of a company's workforce, yet it is an aspect that is seldom considered as a method with which to improve efficiency.
On the cover: Dave Hart, project manager for Haemonetics Corp., monitors the product record, managed with Agile PLM. Haemonetics is a global company engaged in the design, manufacture, and worldwide marketing of automated blood processing systems.
The miniature, high resolution, progressive scan, “ice-cube-size” CCD camera family—the IK-52V (1/2 inch) and IK-53V (1/3 inch) are 29 mm ³ and weigh only 45 grams each. Both feature VGA resolution. The 659 x 494 pixels feature horizontal resolution at 500 TV lines.
In most applications, the B3W series electric belt drive actuator can be used as a direct drop-in replacement for the B3B actuator, allowing users to accelerate larger loads faster without additional cost. It is designed for high wear resistance, repeatable accuracy, and high load capacities.
With an outer diameter as small as 8 mm, these high precision miniature joints are suited specifically for medical equipment and many applications in which space is restricted.
This fully automated screen printing machine is designed for use with injection molding robots. The machine dial is specially made to match the number of cavities in the injection mold. The injection mold unload robot first takes the printed and UV cured products off the machine dial.
A full line of chemical resistant tubing products extruded from TexFluor PTFE, FEP, PFA, or MFA is available for use in material handling applications such as delivery systems.
The “EC 45 4-pole” delivers the performance and lifetime of a brushless motor. A powerful 4-pole neodymium magnet provides high torque without a gearhead. The motors are electronically commutated thus enabling extremely long motor life, since there are simply no mechanical brushes to wear out.
These two intelligent color camera models are designed for in-line industrial vision applications. The Impact T28 and Impact T24 are the latest additions to the Impact T-series—intelligent cameras with full-scale vision image processing capabilities built into the camera.
The LDS series inverters provide a high efficiency DC-AC inverter in a compact form factor for use with a range of LCD panel sizes from 6.4 in. to 12.1 in. diagonal. Measuring only 133.
RoHS-compatible versions are available of the Conan 1.0 mm pitch, low-profile, board-stacking connector system.
A line of shielded atrial catheter cables is available for use with medical diagnostic equipment. These cables meet DIN 42802-2 and IEC 60601-1 sub 56.3(c) specifications and all applicable AAMI/AMSI EC-53 performance requirements.
This “clam shell” balloon forming machine provides very accurate and repeatable controls needed to produce high-quality balloons. The machine features electrically heated, longitudinally split molds with chilled water cooling.
