(Santa Clara, CA)
has announced an
LCD prototype with tactile touch technology developed by NLT
Technologies. This technology recreates the sense of tactile texture by
using electric vibrations and reproduces skin sensations as if they are
tracing actual objects on the display. Features include:
■ Multiple electrodes placed horizontally and vertically on the glass
The new technology performs 5-axis
abrasive waterjet cutting on its 90,000
PSI ( 6,200 bar) EDGE X- 5 5-axis
waterjet with Aquavision Di control
and Closed Loop Filtration System.
■ Availability from 5’ x 5’ (1500 x 1500
mm) to 24’ x 13.’ (7300 x 3900 mm).
■ An industrial PC controller.
■ A ball-screw driven design for optimal
■ Direct-couple AC brushless digital
■ Single or double carriages.
Fully Ruggedized Secure Virtual Machine
General Micro Systems (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) has introduced the industry’s first conduc-tion-cooled, fully ruggedized, Secure Virtual Machine (SVM) server with six hardware independent I/O modules. Designed to replace multiple workstations using virtual machine technology,
Tarantula (SO302 4-in-1) incorporates an enterprise-level Layer 2
or Layer 3 intelligent switch for high-speed
connectivity. Features include:
■ 6 hardware-independent Secure Virtual
■ 18 1-Gbit intelligent Ethernet ports with
MIL locking connectors.
■ Removable RAID storage and Auxiliary
Power Unit (APU).
■ Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge-EP CPU with 10
cores ( 2. 4 GHz each).
■ Tamper-proof TPM security and the ability to
■ Ultra-SWaP ( 11.75” x 7.75” x 4. 5” 18 lbs. and as low as 180 W).
(Cumming, GA) new
EA3 series operator
touch panels are avail-
able in 8 and 10-inch versions. The
series micro-graphic touch panels are equipped
with TFT LCD 800 x 600 pixel displays and a
palette of 32K colors for customizing objects, screen backgrounds, and
displaying bitmap graphics. Features include:
■ 2 serial communications ports (15-pin and RJ12).
■ Built-in alarm control setup.
Next Gen Coordinate
ZEISS (Maple Grove, MN) has introduced
a new coordinate measuring machine for
quality assurance. In addition to the ZEISS
CALYPSO reference software, the ZEISS
■ An articulating probe holder that can be
freely positioned in 2. 5° increments, result-
ing in more than 20,000 possible positions.
■ A sensor interface for the flexible use of
contact and optical sensors.
■ A tangential approach without a stop and
go, as well as circular or helical scanning.
■ A choice of measuring ranges with 8 dif-
ferent sizes starting with a measuring vol-
ume of 700 x 700 x 600 mm up to 1200
x 2400 x 1000 mm.
