Seriously about the debris, I think the plan with this would be to locate the boundary barriers far enough from the facility being protected that the debris is a moot point. I would expect fixed barriers most of the way around that facility and this movable barrier would be activated most the time; except, when deliveries needed to enter. Ideally, there would be a dual lock with a buffer in between; so that, both barriiers would never need to be down at the same time.
More than debris, I would be more concerned about flammable/explosive liquids, such as a semi-trailer gasoline tanker and a burning torch on the back; hence, more reason for the buffer distance requirements.With adequate buffer distance, strategically located storm drains to a holding reservoir could at least direct the flames of the gasoline truck scenerio to a mostly managed location.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
