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.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
