Just Last Night, I had to make a Quick Fix to code that needs to ship today. Two different Compile Confiurations to the same Sorce Code, was broken Two years ago, by forcing Both versions to have the same basic settings, by using #define. The less used version, was broken by replacing an Input Configuration with the Now common basic settings.
To fix the Less Used version, without rewriting the More Used version and retesting all code, I used the #undef to remove the changes, but only from the Less Used Version, and did not change any of the More Used versions code.
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
