Smart machines are delivering efficiency, optimization, and savings to automation and control. The wave of the future for automation and control is intelligent devices. This Thursday's radio show looks at smart machines and their cost-saving benefits. Smart machines mean faster setup, higher throughput, and less programming for control engineers.
The smart machine offers simple (complex in some cases) processing capability to adapt to changing conditions. These machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and others.
The free online radio show, Smart Machines Make the Grade for Control Applications, will explore what’s possible with smart machines, and what the tradeoffs are when implementing intelligent devices.
