Delcam’s joint venture partner in Korea, Hankook Delcam, will demonstrate a range of software products at the Intermold Korea exhibition to be held in Ilsan from 12–16 March. The company’s booth will also include clinics offering advice on the latest developments in CAD/CAM technology and applications. Programs on show will include PowerMILL, FeatureCAM and PartMaker.
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the ADuCRF101 precision analogue microcontroller with RF transceiver from Analog Devices. The ADuCRF101 is a fully integrated data acquisition system on a chip designed for low-power wireless applications.
The Digi Transport WR11 from Amplicon is a secure, low-cost HSPA cellular connection; it comes with dual SIM card slots providing cellular failover. The WR11 router is suitable for use in industries including transportation, energy, medical, financial, retail and digital signage as well as cellular back-up and remote device (M2M) connectivity applications.
Delcam Taiwan will demonstrate the latest developments from its development team, the largest in the CAM industry, at the TIMTOS exhibition to be held in Taipei from 3–8 March.
Delcam’s PartMaker division has launched a free PC-based app called the PartMaker Multi-Channel Viewer that enables users of multi-tasking turn-mill centres and Swiss-type lathes to view and align multi-channel CNC programs automatically.
Matrox Imaging is set to deliver classroom training on the Matrox Design Assistant 4 flowchart-based machine vision software at its headquarters in Montreal, Canada, on 20–22 April.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2875: a rugged, high-voltage-tolerant CAN transceiver designed to reduce field failures without the need for costly external protection devices. The device is offered in commercial, industrial, automotive and military (-55°C to +125°C) temperature grades and is available in 3 x 3mm DFN-8 and SO-8 packages, with industry-standard pin-outs.
UniStream, a modular HMI PLC controller from Unitronics, now features an I/O module with eight analogue inputs. The new I/O module can be snapped onto a panel or can be located further away as part of a remote I/O configuration.

Weidmüller helps machine constructors to handle their assembly, installation, commissioning and maintenance as simply and safely as possible.
This article from CEDRAT is focused on the static and dynamic eccentricity fault in the induction motor. The quantities considered are: torque, leakage flux and magnetic forces measured outside the machine (such as accelerometer sensor). For each quantity, CEDRAT compares its signature in degraded mode with the healthy mode. The company devotes a short paragraph of this article to demonstrating the new feature of Flux concerning double FFT; this feature is available in the dedicated ...
This paper points out the main mechanism design issues — high performances, mechanical and thermal stability, low power consumption, high integration level, high reliability and safety and cleanliness requirements — and examines how these issues have been approached by Cedrat Technologies and Sodern. Test results are reported when available.
MEP designers and engineers have started trending toward providing 3D design-intent models produced in software such as Autodesk Revit or Autodesk AutoCAD MEP.
To thrive, according to this Planview-sponsored white paper, companies should embed and operationalise innovation management.
In this paper the question will be discussed where and when the expense of a CoSimulation with two established simulation tools such as 1) Matlab/Simulink and 2) FLUX is worthwhile. A linear actuator is used as an example, which is simplified and abstracted from a real part due to confidentiality reasons.
‘Innovation is everywhere. You can’t go an entire commercial break during the World Cup or The State of the Union Address without hearing the word innovation at least once or twice.’
Traditional methods of remote monitoring and control using RTUs and SCADA systems are well entrenched in the water industry. But there is a wave of new technologies available now that have the potential to dramatically change the way we think and act in our endeavours to optimise our scarce water resources.
ow do you drive innovation? Do you lead with intuition shaped by your experiences? Or do you take a more scientific approach, relying upon strategic plans, business models and market studies? Michael Raynor of Deloitte Consulting says: ‘Judgement is a significant part of the equation, but the facts define the parameters of the choices you face. Sure, the numbers matter, but only at the margin.’
