This controller puts ORMEC's advanced digital drive technology and IEC 61131-3 programming capabilities all into one product. Software development is cheaper with PLCopen motion function blocks, and ORMEC extensions will tackle the toughest motion applications. The whole SMLC product line has 1 to 16 axes, and can handle thousands of I/O points with built-in I/O and networked expansion modules.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
