In general this class could have been made better by reducing some of the overlap and repetition, expanding the slides for self documenting presentation, and perhaps gaining enough time to add another 22 or so slides either in one session or across sessions where a 'typical or hypothetical' Industrial Control application was walked through, from sensors to actuators to processors to software to standards and etc. Many don't seem familiar with 'ladder logic' I believe there are many other concepts which could have been touched on and integrated to make a good course even better.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
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
