It's only fitting that the Incremental Motion Control System Society (IMCSS) should offer a number of short courses. Included in this stable are subjects encompassing design and control of step, dc and ac, brushless, and spindle motors. Up and coming is the Electric Motor Design Course being held April 28-May 3, 2003 during the 7th Annual Training Sessions and Magsoft Users Meeting in Sarasota, FL. This course is targeted for helping both new and experienced electric motor design engineers. Visit www.motorsoft.net.
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.
