High-Pulse Laser Rotary Encoders: Positional Angle Mastery In A Tiny Package

The use of high-pulse optical-digital laser rotary encoders benefits applications where sensing or controlling the rotation and position of a mechanical system with high accuracy and exceptional resolution is required.

Custom Vs. Off-the-Shelf Solutions: Are You Dreaming Big Enough?

Custom positioning solutions provide more leeway for innovation, and at far less cost, than many customers realize.

Improving Additive Manufacturing With The Help Of Infrared

Additive manufacturing technologies create components directly from a computer model, adding material only where needed. This app note discusses how infrared cameras can help manufacturers find systematic problems and determine the changes needed to maintain product quality.

Driver Vision Enhancement (DVE) With SWIR Cameras

There are many current DVE systems that use passive thermal imaging systems that enhance a driver’s viewing capabilities while operating in darkness, fog, smoke, dust, etc. SWIR has emerged as a technology that meets the current needs of DVE.

Overcoming Metrology Bottlenecks In Additive Manufacturing

Post-process metrology to validate the integrity of additive manufacturing (AM) builds is vital because many parts produced by AM end up in critical safety applications. This article reviews developments from ZYGO that allow for hitherto unattainable metrology results.
