Two new guides from Intertronics offer an introduction to the Electrically Conductive Adhesives and Thermally Conductive Adhesives produced by Polytec PT. Each guide gives a descriptive overview of the technology involved and related product applications in industries such as microelectronics, electrical engineering, power engineering and general energy.
How touchscreens improve efficiency download
It has never been more important to have a user-friendly interface, and wIth the right touchscreen solution, operators are able to programme systems, using easy-to-navigate menus by simply touching the screen to make a selection.
Corona cameras are used as NDT (non-destructive) equipment as a means to find electrical abnormalities and faults. Corona is a partial electrical discharge created on conducting surfaces where a local high e-field exceeds a certain critical value. In most cases corona is referred to as a deficiency that should be eliminated, in particular so if the surface is made of polymeric material.
The spot pyrometer is also known as temperature gun or infrared thermometer. Because it works according to the same physical principle as a thermal camera, a spot pyrometer can be seen as a thermal camera with only one pixel. Such a tool can be very useful for many tasks, but because it only measures the ...
Efficient engineering through CAE download
Companies that evolve with the latest engineering design technologies are benefiting from improved productivity, project turnaround times, enhanced product quality and security. Ken Christie, director of EPLAN UK, explains how the complete computer aided engineering solutions can be intrinsically linked across all areas of a business to create synergy between engineering disciplines and processes.
Many applications require long-term position stability, which relates to the notion of absolute precision over time. Until now, the long-term stability of strain gauges (SG) for position measurement was questionable. Using its extensive know-how of strain gauges integration and new instrumentation equipment, ...
ATLID Beam Steering Mechanism and derived new piezoelectric based devices for optical applications download
In space and defence (as well as in many others fields), there is a trend for miniaturisation in active optics requiring new actuators. Applications also often require the ability to withstand high vibrations and shocks levels, as well as vacuum compatibility for space applications. A new generation of small and smart actuators such as piezoelectric (piezo) actuators, are resolving this trend, thanks to their capacity to offer high energy density and to support both extreme and various ...
This paper presents research and development results of the high performances piezoelectric actuators. Performed studies were concentrated on the improvement of three major parameters: stroke, maximum driving frequency and operational temperature. Two new actuators were presented and described in this paper.
Advantages of large piezoelectric actuators and high power drives for fatigue and fretting test download
Constant expansion of new materials requires fretting or fatigue machines in order to test their failure. In many cases tests must be performed in severe conditions and at high frequency. These requirements come from the use of the materials in highly demanding applications.
While Cedrat Technologies has been active in space for more than 20 years with piezoelectric mechanisms, we have also been increasingly involved over the last few years in the development of magnetic actuators for space projects. In this paper, a focus is made on the case of magnetic actuators that are developed in the frame of the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) project.
Success. Do you have the ability to successfully develop and launch new products and services into a competitive marketplace on a sustainable basis? Companies that answer yes to this question have one thing in common: They understand that product innovation is a critical capability. They have successfully designed, implemented and internalised Idea-to-Launch innovation processes for conceptualising, developing and commercialising new products and services. More commonly, these processes ...
Machine footprint is one of the five key drivers of change identified in this white paper, change that we believe has the potential to radically alter manufacturing for the better. Modern manufacturing has to be highly flexible, adjusting to demand or new product introductions, seemingly at the flick of a switch. It also needs to be efficient, safe and increasingly connected.
Remanence is what is left when all current is removed, and there is still some flux density left in the iron core. This is often the case with a close path for flux density, especially in U- or E-shape devices.
