CJ-series programmable controllers from OMRON (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-539) support position, speed, torque and synchronized control for up to 30 axes. The CJ1W uses Mechatrolink-II servo communications and supports multi-axis synchronization and control. Program control commands such as branching commands and various arithmetic operations are supported to increase programming efficiency. Eight motion tasks can be used to execute motion programs simultaneously. Branched execution provides both independent control and control involving multiple axes, for operations such as interpolation and synchronization, and can be achieved from a single program.
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.”
