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®).
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
