Extreme Stepper Motor Applications

Have you heard of stepper motors? Most Engineers know that steppers are one of the more nimble motor technologies available but most haven't heard of the extreme conditions that steppers can be manufactured to operate in. We'll go through a number of different stepper motor configurations and show you what these engineering marvels are capable of!

Nonlinear Response Optimization: Rapidly Design New Structures Incorporating Real World Loading

Many structures in the real world experience and exhibit nonlinear behavior. The nonlinearity may be due to material behavior, large deformations or contacts experienced during loading. This Webinar will focus on new optimization approaches for obtaining superior designs while incorporating nonlinear responses.

Process Design with Atmospheric and Low Pressure Gas Plasma

Gas plasma is a powerful tool allowing for molecular engineering of materials to impart unique surface properties, without affecting the bulk properties. Considerations in creating a plasma include power delivery, gas or vapor composition, or unique chamber configuration and design. Plasma systems exist that enable both facile batch processing or in-line treatments

There and Back Again: The Migration of Robotic Arm Technology from Mars to Earth

The Lunar Orbiting Laser Altimeter (LOLA) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) launched in 2009 was NASA's first multi-beam lidar. LOLA has produced unprecedented topographic maps of the Lunar surface. LOLA used a Diffractive Optical Element (DOE) to produce five beams from a single laser for enhanced topographic spatial resolution.
