How to deal with data
Features 8/12/1996 Post a comment Flash memory, wireless communication, and a new bus standard are making medical data as easy to handle as they are to collect
Features 8/12/1996 Post a comment Pinball passion is back! CAD born, choreographed via software, and CPU driven, games today call upon dot-matrix displays, MIDI-generated sound, and a crazy mix of electromechanical toys to saturate the senses and steal some time
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
