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.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
