Servo Needs a Solid FootingBy Donald P. Labriola II, president and founder of QuickSilver Controls, Inc.
For a servo system, it is important to remember that the servo responds to what its feedback sensor is measuring. For a servomotor, this is normally the position of the back shaft of the motor with respect to the back end of the motor. Remember — they regulate what they measure.
Construction Time AgainBy Matthew Jaster, Senior Editor
Bauma 2019 (April 8-14, Munich, Germany) is a complete overview of the construction, building materials and mining machinery industry. Here’s an early look at some of the exhibitors and products coming to Bauma this year.
Forest City Gear Takes a Closer Look
Forest City Gear uses an EVO Cam advanced full-HD digital microscope for faster visual inspection of precision parts. As compared to the traditional stereoscopes typically used for visual parts inspection, the EVO Cam offers Forest City Gear a much faster and more accurate way to detect for burrs, tears and other surface finish anomalies that might exist in workpieces after machining.

Siemens PLM Releases Latest Version of SimCenter 3D
Manufacturing is changing with the advent of new materials and production methods, making it more challenging than ever before to ensure that as-manufactured parts match the as-designed shape. In the latest release of Simcenter 3D, Siemens PLM Software introduces new, cutting-edge simulation capabilities, stronger connections to the broader Simcenter portfolio and an expansion of the integrated multi-disciplinary environment to cover an extended simulation solution footprint, which will help engineers reduce the time, cost and effort required to predict product performance.
Mitsubishi Electric Direct-Drive Motor Provides Direct Control with Accuracy of a Servo Motor
Machine designers and end users looking for direct control of a load without traditional transmission components will be interested in the new Low-Profile Direct Drive Motors (TM-RG2M/TM-RU2M) from Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Built with speed and precision in mind, it provides a smaller footprint and allows for more compact, efficient, and precise machines than those typically built using rotary servo motors. Applications that are well suited for the new motor include coating and vapor deposition systems, index tables, tool changers, rotary material handling robots, and rotary axis on XYθ inspection positioning systems.
