Motion and logic controller family enhanced
Ormec Systems Corp. has enhanced its ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) family.
Rochester, NY– Ormec Systems Corp. has enhanced its ServoWire Motion & Logic Controller (SMLC) family to offer four multi-axis models for packaging, material handling, medical, pharmaceutical, and general assembly applications. Available in 3-, 8-, 16- and 24-axis models, the controllers combine thebenefits of both motion control and PLC functions in a single package. With a true real-time operating system powered by Intel 32-bit processors, the SMLC is able to provide cost-effective computing power for demanding multi-axis motion and I/O control applications. The SMLC controllers interface with high-speed drive-based I/O for microsecond position capture, and offer single servo update response to sensor signals. They also provide sub-millisecond programmable limit switch outputs, tightly coupled to the motion control. For general purpose I/O applications, a variety of analog and digitalmodules can be connected. Ormec has been a manufacturer of fully integrated, closed loop motion control systems that combine motion controllers, logic control, drives, servo motors, HMIs and Firewire-based networking in a package since 1982.

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.
