ELAU has introduced the latest version of EPAS-4, its PacDrive Automation Software toolkit. The EPAS-4 Version 16 has a fully documented software template. Other new software functions include preventive maintenance. The new tool kit is for assembling programs such as building blocks, using the best aspects of all the IEC languages, including ladder logic. EPAS-4's new drag-and-drop template facilitates the IEC languages that are easier to program and visualize, especially in the various cases of servo machines.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
