MOTION CONTROL: TURCK introduced a new AS-interface® (AS-i) speed monitor that monitors safety speeds and stop conditions on up to two axes. The speed monitor, manufactured by Bihl+Wiedemann, is part of the large range of AS-i safety products distributed by TURCK in the United States.
The speed monitor may be efficiently programmed using a configuration push-button or by using AS-i control tools. When the speed falls below the designated threshold, the device sends a signal to AS-i. The monitor also employs an integrated chip card to record all programmed parameters. With this feature, the device does not require reprogramming to regain access to the machine after a controlled stop.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
