Helping manufacturers address ‘green’ manufacturing with vacuum technology One of the biggest shifts in the manufacturing industry in recent years is the growing focus on sustainability. What started as a concern amongst a relatively small group has gathered force to become a key mainstream issue. However, a rise
Selecting the right DC motor is an important aspect of optimizing medical machine performance. There are so many motors on the market today, from heavy-duty AC motors to tiny DC brushless and stepper motors. To use any of the motors users must have a full understanding of the
Engages a shape-shifting multi-leaf collimator to focus radiation on tumors while protecting surrounding healthy tissue in sensitive areas of the body. The problem can be a matter of life and death to the patient. Until a few years ago, head and
With digital television fast approaching, camera manufacturers are flooding the market with new, lightweight units, but few companies are providing the professional equipment that goes with the upcoming change. Up until 2006, the only broadcast-use professional motorized Pan/Tilts in the market were very heavy. This is because the equipment
Plug-and-play probe connects to any computer’s USB port for instant ultrasound use. The Ultrasound Probe System developed by Interson (Pleasanton, CA) delivers all the capabilities of a standard ultrasound probe but without the six-figure price tag. The device does not require the dedicated detection and display hardware that the
Surgical simulators that impart the actual feeling of performing surgery provide obvious training benefits. Here’s how one company helps clinicians perfect the practice. Immersion Medical (Gaithersburg, MD) designs and manufactures surgical simulators. Similar in idea to that of flight simulators for pilots, a surgical simulator allows a medical student
Used to deliver critical cargo, these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) provide unprecedented accuracies in flight. The Onyx guided parachute designed and manufactured by Atair Aerospace (NY) is an autonomous precision airdrop system. Each system fulfills the precision airdrop requirements under the U.S. Army's Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) program,
Fronius ushered in a new era in automated and robot-assisted GMAW (gas metal arc welding) technology with the introduction of the CMT (Cold Metal Transfer) process. Since then the innovative process, with its revolutionary reversing wire-feed unit, has been winning new applications, year after year, in the most varied sectors
