It’s Not Easy Being Green: Complying with Changing Global Environment Laws will be held Tuesday, November 10, and IPC Materials Conference: Engineering for Compliance will be held Wednesday, November 11.
Both programs run all day at the cost of $395 each for IPC members and $495 for non-members. IPC also offers a combined rate of $575 for IPC members and $675 for non-members.
IPC will also hold workshops before and after the conference, a half-day afternoon workshop on Monday regarding REACH, and a half-day morning workshop on Thursday covering nanotechnology.
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.
