The webinar Enabling Modular Design with Servo and Automation Technologies On Thursday, August 12, 2010 starting at 2pm EST and is hosted by Machine Design and Motion System Design.

Control engineers and machine designers are traditionally tasked with optimizing their own designs — through servo sizing, electrical outlining, and component selection and programming. Optimization tools are widely available for all of these ventures. However, if modularity is a prime design objective, a different viewpoint is helpful.

This webinar will discuss recent developments in automation and servo technology that make modular machine design easier: Machine control architecture options; useful tools in the IEC61131-3 programming standard; meeting more user specifications; and reducing inventoried products. Chris Knudsen will be the keynote speaker for this event.
