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.

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.
The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...
Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.
The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...
Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.
Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...
The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
