Technews is proud to present this (our first) issue of Motion Control - and I must say, it certainly looks set to live up to our expectations. Looking back at past issues of MC, and drawing from our experience with SA Instrumentation & Control, it became apparent that there is scope for expansion, without deviating from the theme that runs through the magazine.
Motion Control's true theme
Although the name 'Motion Control' would suggest that the magazine focuses on the control aspect, this is not true. While it may touch on control aspects, the real theme of this publication is essentially everything that is directly involved with the production of controlled mechanical power.
The vision we have is of a magazine that serves all in industry who design, integrate, construct, use and maintain any equipment that makes use of 'mechanical muscles' of any description - be they hydraulic, pneumatic or electric. So it begins with actuators, motors and servos from the three main groupings: hydraulic, pneumatic and electric; from there on the theme continues through all the control elements, the power generation, transmission and conditioning equipment associated with these three groupings.
With Motion Control, Technews is working to provide a means for all involved in these areas to be kept up to date with what is available and what is happening. The table below gives some idea of the scope.
Our editorial policy is the same as that for SA Instrumentation & Control: Our primary editorial obligation is to our advertisers. Submissions from non-advertisers will be used at the Editor's discretion, in the best interests of our readers - space permitting. Editorial is presented in the voice of the publication and is free of hyperbole. Material that is required to be published unaltered should be submitted as advertorial - or as advertisements. There is no charge for editorial that is published. Anyone may submit editorial. Good, interesting/educational articles are most welcome. Preferred format for submissions is plain, e-mailed text, with pictures sent as separate *.jpg (or zipped *.bmp) attachments. If you have any questions regarding file formats and sizes, etc, please call or e-mail me.
Letters to the Editor
This is our first issue, so we expect the magazine to go through a period of change as it settles into its new personality. Suggestions and ideas from readers will be welcome, as we want to publish a Motion Control that best serves the needs of the industry.
If any reader has something relevant that they would like to see discussed or included in future issues - or if you feel strongly enough to rant about such an issue, e-mail me and we will see if we can include a 'Letters to the Editor' section in the next issue.
