NEW COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Is Your Work Place Safe? ... STI introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size. It is based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
New Steinmeyer PMT 160 Stages Are Driven by Modern Piezo Technology!
BURLINGTON, MA --Steinmeyer, Inc. announced another addition to its extensive family of linear positioning stages. The new PMT-160-NM Series of stages. These are high precision linear stage with 160mm width and driven by modern piezo technology. The linear stages of the PMT series are optimized especially for use in the metrology world. Outstanding low deviations from straightness and flatness as well as high system accuracies characterize these stages.
