Why Software Is Critical to Automation System Design
Date / Time: Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 2:00:00 p.m. EDT
Overview: With the emergence of the fully automated factory, software is becoming a crucial component of design and manufacturing success. Whether you're talking about the rapid product development cycle, design for manufacturability, or repeatable, high-quality production yields in factory automation settings, it's often the software that's the gating factor. Jonah Paul, Product Manager for Industrial Software at National Instruments, and moderator Rob Spiegel, Senior Editor of Design News, will discuss the issues involved with developing, deploying, controlling, and upgrading automation software.

By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
