Mitsubishi POF ESKA™
Mitsubishi’s ESKA™ Plastic Optical Fiber (POF) delivers end-lit illumination using LEDs and other light sources. Its low cost and flexibility are ideal for sensing, data and lighting applications. Used in Infotainment systems, POF can also be used with Lidar, cameras, safety sensors and accent lighting in AV/EV. FREE samples. Learn more
Motion Index Drives' new RTX350 high-speed cam indexing rotary table is the newest and smallest indexer of our extensive line of cam indexers. The index time for these units is 0.25 seconds for 36 degrees. Several hundred of these new RTX350/10 ten station and six station rotary indexers will be utilized in a battery manufacturing facility in Germany. Learn more
Unique Leak Testing Technology for Smallest Defect in Lithium-Ion Battery Cells
The new INFICON ELT3000 Electrolyte Battery Leak Detector uniquely determines leakage directly, rather than through indirect parameters. It can find leaks 1,000 times smaller than those found with traditional methods and helps guarantee battery lifetimes of up to 10 years.
Many automotive engineers have nightmares about noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) issues. Ironically, one of those pests, vibration, is widely used to assemble many types of plastic auto parts.
High-Precision Actuator for Battery and EV Assembly
HyperCyl-EMA is a servo-driven, Electric Actuator providing the flexibility & accuracy for a wide array of EV applications. Do you need a clean, reliable, long-lasting power unit without the use of Hydraulics? HyperCyl-EMA provides a universally adjustable output Force range from 5-230 kN and includes our HyperView-Press for in-process Quality Control to reduce your costs and part non-conformance. Roller Screw and Ball Screw designs available based on the overall life-expectancy of your project. When you think of HyperCyl-EMA, think of Force!
RollerDrive technology incorporates a cam with a high gear reduction to deliver large torque capacities with smaller servo drives. This zero-backlash design maintains the motor positioning accuracy. Output motions are programmable through servo motor controls in forward or reverse directions. Learn more
