Struggling to Select the Right Encoder Feedback? Read This.
Choosing the right feedback device for your application can be tricky but we're here to help with a three-part series designed to help you choose the correct device for your servo motor application.

Tube Bending OEMs Embrace All-Electric Automation

The tube bending industry is seeing a migration from more traditional manual hydraulic process equipment to fully automated "all electric" machinery. Historically, tube bending operations have been labor intensive, noisy, and slow with sometimes-dangerous factory processes that also often had serious issues with repeatability and quality.
A Six-Pack of IPA Solutions

The Intelligent Parker Amplifier (IPA) is already one of the most feature-packed and versatile servo drive controllers on the market today. But the demands of automation customers are constantly driving more functionality and usability. To meet those needs, Parker has added six new ways to solve applications using the IPA. Parker has an ever-expanding portfolio of motors and actuators incorporating the leading edge of feedback protocols. The IPA hardware was designed with those new encoders in mind, and now we are pleased to introduce the tools to harness that potential. 

On Demand Webinar: Meeting the Motion Needs of Flexible Automation
With more demand for customized equipment, there is growing interest in flexible automation solutions. These are configurable and scalable and account for variances in payload and speed, among other parameters. In this webinar you’ll learn how configurable and scalable mechanics make flexible automation for machine builders a reality.
High Moment Rodless (HMR) Actuator Gets New Video

The High Moment Rodless (HMR) electromechanical linear actuator series represents one of the most versatile actuator lines on the market today. With five different frame sizes, two different drive train options, multiple motor mounting, carriage and sensor options, and an IP54 protective cover option, along with a multitude of other customizable features, the HMR was designed with application optimization in mind with a goal of reducing overall design time, along with simplifying the installation and integration of this actuator into a system.

Flexible Machine Design for 21st Century Challenges

For a machine designer, flexibility means highly configurable and adaptable components that can allow for slight variations without demanding major design changes. When applying these demands to your electromechanical actuator, what are the specific markers for flexibility to look for?
