The Espresso Book Machine makes a perfect-bound paperback book virtually identical to the publisher’s original in a matter of minutes. The user chooses a digital file via the EspressNet software system, either at the physical EBM, or remotely via the Internet (users can also bring their own files in person: on CD’s, flash drives, etc.). The EBM uses PDF files for the book block and the cover. A high-speed Xerox 4112 Copier/Printer prints the pages of the book – the book block. The printer uses standard US letter-size (8.5” x 11”) or A4 paper stock. A high-speed Xerox 4112 Copier/Printer prints the pages of the book – the book block. The printer uses standard US letter-size (8.5” x 11”) or A4 paper stock. A rotating wheel applies a thin layer of heat-activated glue over the milled edge. The clamp then moves the book block down to the cover, which waits on the binding table. The EBM uses special pneumatics and clamps to press the cover against the spine and around the book block. This produces a traditional “perfect-bound” book.
World's First Dual Channel Brushless DC Motor Controller Targets Small Electric Vehicles and Robotics
The controller also includes protection against overheat, stall, and short circuits.
The controller accepts commands from analog joystick, standard R/C radio, or RS232 interface, and can switch automatically from one mode to the other.
Emergency responders now have a new remotely piloted unmanned helicopter to use when inspecting dangerous or difficult to reach areas. The Draganflyer aircraft streams wireless digital video down to the operator and displays it on a handheld screen.
