Controller combines single-axis controller, servo amplifier
Yaskawa's Sigma-7Siec is designed for automation applications that require the control of only one servo motor and offers an amplifier/controller combination.
Yaskawa's Sigma-7Siec, a unit that combines a Servopack servo amplifier with a one-axis motion controller, is designed for automation applications that require the control of only one servo motor. The Sigma-7Siec offers an amplifier/controller combination while using the smaller footprint of an individual amplifier, conserving space in tight control cabinets. Other features include EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP for connectivity, IEC 61131-3 programming, and programmable outputs to reduce panel cost and space requirements when only a few outputs are necessary. Third-party input/output (I/O) modules can be interfaced with the system and it has a built-in web server that eliminates the need for special monitoring/maintenance software.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
