Siemens has expanded its extensive drive portfolio for servo applications to include the Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor that is optimally harmonized with the Sinamics S120 converter system. The complete integration of this drive system into Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) makes configuration and commissioning easy. Prefabricated Motion Connect signal and power cables offer an easy and reliable method of connecting the components. The components have electronic rating plates, and the motors are connected via the Drive-Cliq system interface so that the system can be brought into operation quickly. This servo drive system from Siemens is suitable for use in a multitude of applications, such as printing and packaging machines, storage and retrieval machines , conveyor systems and dosing pumps.
The highlights of the compact Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor are its high efficiency and low torsional backlash for precise, dynamic motion sequences. The Simotics S-1FG1 is available in the following versions: helical, parallel shaft, bevel and helical worm gearboxes – and with up to 25 transmission ratios, depending on the type of gear and size. The helical gearing of the gear wheels makes the gearboxes run very quietly, thereby reducing the generation of noise. The small diameter of the plug-on pinion inserted into the motor shaft enables the first gear stage to have a high transmission ratio. This in turn means that in some cases a two-stage gearbox can be used instead of a three-stage one.
On account of its highly integrated functionality and scalable number of axes, the Sinamics S120 converter system is suitable for use in a multitude of demanding Motion Control applications. The high-performance single and coordinated multi-axis drives with vector or servo control enable tailor-made solutions to be implemented that increase productivity and flexibility. The converter is available in four different versions: blocksize, booksize, chassis and cabinet units. The power units or motor modules in booksize format have been redesigned in the three to 30 ampere range. Power units with a treble overload capability and the integration of the motor connection system into the motor module save a considerable amount of space in respect of height and width in the control cabinet. The newly developed connection method makes for fast, easy and reliable assembly and wiring. The optimized shielding design and improved thermal separation between power semiconductor and electronics also ensure greater ruggedness.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
