MOTION CONTROL: WAGO Corp.’s IP 200 plotter bundles universal marking capabilities into a compact, value-priced unit. At 17.3 inch sq - half the size of traditional plotters - the DIN A4-size IP 200 marks all WAGO markers, marker strips and wire markers, along with cards from other manufacturers.The IP 200 accommodates two carrier plates, carries a USB interface and is compatible with WAGO’s EG 450 Engraver. This enables the IP 200 to engrave push buttons, legend plates and ID tags on plastic or aluminum components.
For custom marking, the IP 200 is compatible with WAGO’s ProServe design suite. ProServe combines design (smartDESIGNER) and marking capabilities (smartMARKING) with WAGO’s 16,000+ product catalog (productLOCATOR), streamlining the design process. Via ProServe’s smartMARKING tool, the WSIWYG-based interface enables creation of marking strips and print cards using a symbol library and a text length verification feature. The completed design is then output to the IP 200.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
