The smartEDDY(TM) vibrator bowl system provides high-speed, fully automated, non-destructive testing and inspection of a wide range of metal parts. The system accepts large quantities of non-oriented parts, and orients the parts and moves them through an inspection station. Parts with flaws, missing operation, improper heat treatment, wrong size, etc. are rejected. The system incorporates contact-free, fast, flexible, and accurate eddy-current test technology to ensure that 100%-inspection capability is achieved.

PTC will offer a virtual desktop environment for its Creo product design applications, potentially freeing engineers to run them from remote desktops on a variety of operating systems and mobile devices.
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.
