PenGUIn human machine interface
(HMI), targeting machine-building applications is a new machine-HMI line
featuring a powerful combination of monitoring, control and communication
capabilities. Besides the standard HMI functionality, the PenGUIn HMI comes
with powerful protocol conversion, port sharing and web server capability, all
of which are configured and managed by GUIcon software package.
PenGUIn comes in four screen sizes: 6, 8, 10 and 15 inches. It can be
equipped with up to six serial ports and two ethernet ports and is capable of
managing up to 13 different protocols simultaneously. These can be selected
from an extensive list of more than 200 protocols via GUIcon software. Optional
communication cards include: CAN, DeviceNET, ProfiBUS, GSM and RS232/485. The
built-in web and e-mail server allows remote monitoring, remote program
modifications and diagnostics and alarm notifications. This reduces maintenance
or servicing costs. Recipes can be locally stored and accessed using optional
CF memory cards.

Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
