MOTION CONTROL: Siemens is offering a cooperative partnership with its mechatronic support service so that machine tool OEMs can meet customer expectations. This service will be available in the U.S. through its R&D group in South Lebanon, OH.Mechatronics support allows the OEM to design their machines together with Siemens experts - from the machine’s concept all the way through to completion. Such cooperation enables machine tool builders to work very closely with Siemens as their expert and supplier of control and drives technology. Working together with the OEM’s engineers, Siemens will develop innovative ideas and end-user specific machine concepts that are tailored exactly to their needs. Each solution comes equipped with state-of-the-art CNC technology and the ultimate in functionality.
The mechatronic service is also available for existing machines. In this case, Siemens will focus on the interaction between the mechanical components and the electrical drives to improve the precision and productivity of a machine.
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
