I WILL be hoping to hear if you're familiar with the Leap sensor; 0.01mm repeatable position precision, between 32 and 200 frames per second, uses between 2% and 5% of a generic PC's CPU time running the algorithms that actually extract position data from the sensor's data stream... Range limitation is the chief drawback (at the moment); their initial product is designed as a desktop-worksurface solution, only monitors an eight cubic foot volume (which STILL manages to yield around 3.25 giga-bits of position data, if you do a ten-micrometer grid across the back surface of an approximately two foot radius field-of-view)... But that will be tomorrow's discussion, re "Fundamentals of Image Sensors", right?
Transfers the control of a large number of motion axes from one numerical control kernel to another within a CNC system, using multiple NCKs, and enables implement control schemes for virtually any type of machine tool.
Industrial trade shows, like Design News' upcoming Pacific Design & Manufacturing, deserve proper planning in order to truly get the most out of them as marketing tools. Here's how to plan effectively.
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.
