5-axis machining varies from very small to extremely large and requires the right workholding to obtain optimal machining results and no single workholding option solves all needs, reports Kurt Manufacturing. Part complexity and size requirements coupled with machine capabilities and limitations dictate what workholding works best.
DILAS has expanded its conduction-cooled, fiber-coupled diode laser modules at 1470nm and 1530nm to include 200µm, NA0.22. With 12W output power, these fiber-coupled modules are ideal for the medical market primarily for surgical applications that demand high-power, stable sources with the smallest fiber diameters.
Measurement Specialties now offers a robust, DC-response accelerometer that operates in temperatures from -55°C to +170°C. The new MEMS-based 4604HT features an amplified output as well as critical dampening to a -80 dB/decade response attenuation for excellent high frequency signal suppression and improved measurement accuracy.
Edmund Optics (EO) has announced today that it has doubled it's offering of stock Zinc Selenide Plano-Convex (PCX) Lenses. These lenses are an ideal choice for high power laser applications, thermal imaging, FLIR, and medical systems.
TDK Corporation has announced the extension of the TDK-Lambda GWS500 series power supplies with the addition of two low output voltage models. Combining the same high efficiency, high power density and low standby power characteristics as other models within the GWS500 series, the 5V 80A and 7.5V 67A models are well-suited for fitting into 1U enclosures.
Cicoil has announced the introduction of its ultra-durable Controlled Impedance Cable. Unlike bulky round cables and non-flexible woven cables, the Cicoil deign can be utilized in applications requiring submersion in water, repetitive motion and exposure to harsh environments.
Hirose Electric has developed a 0.3 mm pitch (FPC) flexible printed circuit connector that supports high speed transmissions and provides high retention forces. The back flip style actuator utilizes dual-sided FPC and helps it to achieve the excellent impedance characteristics that allow it to be used for high speed transmissions...
Hamamatsu Photonics have introduced a completely updated range of Multi-Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC) detectors. Hamamatsu’s already highly regarded MPPC technology has found uses in various applications from medical physics and high energy physics to general optical measurement applications.
ICCNexergy has announced the launch of its new 30-watt and 50-watt desktop power supply lines for both medical (MWA030, MWA050) and ITE/commercial (FWE030, FWE050) applications. These new power supply lines meet Level V efficiency standards and are available in both class I and class II designs.
Murata has announced the DMR20-1-ACV "nanometer" self-powered four-digit bright LED voltmeter. This line powered AC voltmeter can measure the true RMS value of its input from 85 to 264 VAC to within 0.1 V resolution.
Designing with Tiva C Series microcontrollers (MCUs) is now even easier with the new Tiva C Series TM4C123G USB+CAN Development Kit from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN).
TURCK has announced its new line of inductive angle sensors for rotary actuators. Operating with the inductive resonant circuit measuring principle, these inductive angle sensors deliver enhanced valve monitoring on rotary actuators. The sensors are designed with an innovative open face design...
