This white paper reviews the general principles of test-centric assembly for manufacturers and machine builders more accustomed to streamlining assembly operations where testing is absent or plays a minimal part.
The fundamental advantage of a stepper motor, speed and position control without feedback, is becoming more attractive to industries sensitive to cost, or to overcome the reliability problems linked to the mechanical commutation system of DC motors.
This white paper examines the printer technologies that are available for embedded applications, explains why direct thermal technology is ideal for embedded usage, provides selection criteria for identifying the right thermal printer, and demonstrates the value of engaging the printer manufacturer early in the design cycle.
Countless companies worldwide use radio frequency identification (RFID) to improve internal efficiencies, adding to their value proposition and increasing product or process safety. The technology is especially useful to medical device manufacturers, who must ensure the safety of their products and production processes to protect patients.
