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.
The FDA has just released draft guidelines for using 3D printing in the design, development, and manufacture of regulated medical products. Although the recommendations are non-binding, they do set some much-needed parameters.
