A patented technology has been developed for engineers who need a housing or enclosure with the fit, finish, and quality of an injection-molded part but who don't have the quantity requirements to justify tooling.
ParaLogix Version 2.1 contains more than 50 new enhancements for improving large model and assembly performance, model creation, design changes, and drawing documentation. Advanced section views and dimensioning types such as datums and balloon notes have also been added.
Thanks to simulation software, researchers at the University of Sheffield, Yamagata University, and Fluent have been able to figure out the complex physics of soccer and solve the mystery of "trick" or "bending" free kicks. Dr. Takeshi Asai of Yamagata University used MSC.
Both 2D and 3D techniques were used to speed the development of a new line of heart rate monitor watches.
Rigid hull inflatable boats have made their way from sea to shining sea. Used in military and rescue operations in over 80 countries, they are engineered to be tough, fast, and maneuverable. A design firm shares how these boats are engineered to chase the waves.
The NemaTrue Planetary Gearhead Series features three new metric sizes. The new frame sizes are 60, 90, and 115 mm. The units are designed to provide long life in a compact, low inertia package.
Designed to shield and isolate EMI, this array connector system provides multiple back shell options for a variety of fiber management systems. The system can be used on the card front panel or chassis back panel.
These planetary roller screws feature threaded rollers with a planetary timing mechanism designed to promote reliable performance in demanding applications where high speeds and acceleration are required. Designed to be robust and shock-resistant, they can be used in harsh environments.
Size 23 hybrid linear actuators are available with 0.002-in. per step resolution, which is suitable for high-speed applications. They can be driven for 7 in. of travel per second. The actuators are available in four designs: captive, non-captive, external linear, and linear rotary.
The Chill-Out senses freezing temperatures within any 6-in. section along its length. The solid state sensor can replace fragile and difficult-to-install gas capillary tubes and their mechanical switches.
Size 17 hybrid linear actuators feature a new class F insulation system that handles temperatures up to 155°C, allowing operation with high ambient temperatures or increased current.
A new family of wrap spring products is designed for dependable load starting and stopping applications. The line is made up of the Standard CB and Super CB clutches/brakes and WSC Series clutches.
These new focused beam sensing fibers detect minute targets. They allow users to "pipe" light into otherwise inaccessible locations. The fibers come in both fixed and adjustable sensing distance models.
The MCL is a new metal, wide-angle, dual-axes electrolytic tilt sensor for general applications. It features metal containment construction to provide durability as well as exacting dimensional tolerances. Specifications include a 0.41in. height with a diameter of 0.325 in.
The Series 7000 thin-profile, non-contacting angular position sensor is designed as a solution for motion control, rotary position, or steering angle sensing applications. The unit measures less than 8 mm in thickness without housing.
