CAS.CADE Object Libraries are a complete set of reusable software components for 2D and 3D application development that can be supported on Component Object Model/Distributed Component Object Model (COM/DCOM) architecture. CAS.CADE Object Libraries on the COM/DCOM standard are targeted at Windows developers--both independent software vendors of scientific, technical, and multimedia applications and games and industrial companies or research centers wishing to create or extend in-house software, in compliance with this standard component architecture.

New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
