The SPS/IPC/DRIVES show is one of the most successful electric automation shows in Europe. To wit, 1,000 exhibitors are expected at this year's show in Nuremberg, Germany, November 23-25. The show's sponsor, Messe Frankfurt, in conjunction with American partners, hopes to duplicate that success here in the U.S. with a new show next year. SPS
Electric Automation America will take place May 24-26, 2005 in Rosemount, IL. Dan Jones, vice president of Motion Media Group, and a well-known personality in the motion control industry, has been crisscrossing the country over the past several months, promoting the show and signing up contributors for what looks to be a substantial technical conference associated with the show. "We think this event will serve as a much-needed and highly useful information source for design engineers," says Jones, who adds that the conference will focus on application success stories and examples of breakthrough technologies in a number of critical technology areas. Key technologies covered in both the exhibit and conference will include controls, drives, software, sensors, and networks.

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
