Integrates motion and I/O with IEEE 1394b technology
ORMEC's ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) provides cost-effective motion solutions from one to16 axes. It features IEEE 1394b (FireWire) technology that supports higher data rates with improved noise immunity. All models offer small footprints, built-in digital and analog I/O, removable compact Flash, expansion slots, Ethernet and serial connectivity. The SMLC provides a fully-integrated machine-control system by combining IEC 61131-3 programming, PLCopen motion function blocks and industry-standard protocols for I/O and network connectivity.
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.
