On Tuesday, January 19 at 10:00 a.m. EST, Intertek - a quality and safety services firm - will present a free one-hour webinar that will offer an update of recent changes to the REACH list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) as well as an overview of the compliance requirements.
A SVHC is a chemical substance that is subject to requirements under the European Union’s REACH (Registration Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) regulation. On December 7, 2009, the European Chemicals Agency added 15 additional substances to the SVHC candidate list to make a total of 30 substances. The new list will be formally activated in January.
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.
