The Automation 3200 controller from Aerotech (http://rbi.ims.ca/4929-507) integrates the HMI and control tasks in one unified control environment to create an intelligent motion, vision, PLC, robotics and I/O platform. The 3200 offers software-only controller (NMotion SMC) capable of 32 axes of synchronized motion through one interface.
A distributed control architecture enables it to maintain performance independent of the number of axes being controlled. An intelligent network drive (NDrive) handles position and current-loop closure. Trajectory generation is done on the PC using the Windows® operating system. The PC executes programs and sends the incremental position commands to the NDrive via the high-speed serial bus IEEE-1394 (FireWire®).
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
