This insulation, developed by Firestone and enabled by Dows polyurethane raw materials, addresses low-temperature thermal drift without compromising the other performance metrics.
High quality galvanometer scanners, motion systems and mechanical components give long-term machine stability and eliminate thermal drift, ensuring superior mark accuracy and consistency--particularly important when marking high-value components.
The UVZ orientation is also beneficial for obtaining a simple thermal drift model as shown later.
* Series also presents good dynamic response (to 200 Hz) and low thermal drift
However, in these cases a thermal drift of the device need to be eliminated.
This technology has been designed to have minimum thermal drift. To achieve minimum thermal drift, heat loss from the furnace to the specimen tip has been minimized by careful design of the ceramic furnace supports.
The tubular frame should be designed with a symmetry as high as possible and all the parts installed inside it should be as coaxial as possible with it, which can help reduce thermal drift and any field (magnetic field, e.g.) induced strain drift.
As well as providing a simplified displacement measurement technigue, the design offers extremely high basic sensitivity and excellent temperature stability (low thermal drift), and is largely maintenance- and wear-free.
Well, some part of it has to be Mako wanting to continue to make EOTech's thermal drift woes news, and also bring light to its line of competing optics, which are made to the specs of Israeli Special forces.
As always, there's trouble in the details, especially when it comes to thermal drift or special and unique LED characteristics.
Active surface referencing technology reduces thermal drift (10 nm/min at 400[degrees]C) and our unique materials design allows for negligible thermal expansion.
