A 5 A, 60 V monolithic pulse width modulation (PWM) amplifier IC has been developed. The SA56 delivers increased power to drive a wider range of DC and stepper motors of up to 1/3 HP, while the use of PWM technology provides efficient power delivery to minimize thermal issues.
The VB DockLock zero-point workholding system is designed to facilitate workholding setup changes in seconds. It integrates with workholding devices such as vises, providing a fast, accurate, and repeatable method for making setup changes on all types of horizontal and vertical machining centers.
The gas metering valve is a direct-acting proportional Servoid valve. The Servoid valve driver provides linear proportional control of the metering orifice which yields linear proportional flow.
MaxiFlow heat sinks are designed for cooling BGAs and other hot components in the restricted air flow conditions typical of today’s condensed electronic packages. The heat sinks feature a low profile, spread fin array that maximizes surface area for more effective convection (air) cooling.
Patented PEM “Type DSOS” self-clinching threaded standoffs can be installed close to edges in thin metal sheets and offer a reliable method to stack or space components in an assembly. They can serve ideally where space for fastening hardware may be limited and are RoHS compliant.
ESP (Engineer Specials Program) is a program that gives extra attention to building conveyors with unique dimensions and characteristics above and beyond the dimensions of the company’s regular conveyor platforms.
A team of Georgia Institute of Technology researchers is developing an inexpensive, handheld device that uses Doppler ultrasound technology to find veins quickly to alleviate problems associated with the technique.
FlowSim is a new team-based board simulator that can help manufacturing and fabrication teams work through process challenges.
