The VersaMax™ Micro 64 control system GE Fanuc (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-536) offers a wide range of I/O expansion modules and communications options including Ethernet. Multiple operator interfaces and motion solutions are available as simple integration add-ons. The controller uses a common software programming and tag database for the operator interface and controller. For motion, the unit supports four independent 65 kHz Pulse Train/PWM outputs and can be adapted to Fanuc’s line of PowerCube stepper amplifiers and motors or S2K servo controllers. A high-speed counter supports four independent 100 kHz type A counters or one type B counter for precise motion positioning.
This slideshow includes several versions of multi-materials machines, two different composites processes including one at microscale, and two vastly different metals processes. Potential game-changers down the line include three microscale processes.
Hosted CAD or PDM systems is an emerging technology that offers many advantages over traditional on premise workstation CAD configurations and is making many companies rethink how to deliver future CAD software solutions.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
