Cermaq near to completing "smart" factory for salmon

Madelyn Kearns for Seafood Source: "A modern salmon facility takes in the fish, evaluates quality, weight, grading, and during all processes automatically determines which department the fish should go to,"

PLC vs. PAC

PLCs and PACs are similar as they both perform the same essential functions. With modern technology, their differences are becoming more blurred. The most notable difference between PLCs and PACs is their programming interface. PACs are more intricate, using C or C++. PLCs on the other hand, are programmed using ladder logic. These programming differences create distinctions in the architecture and capability between the two computers.

Inventory Technology Reinvented with Best-of-Breed Pick to Light Inventory Control

Businesses, whether in order fulfillment or manufacturing, see the need to resolve certain pain points; the trigger is usually when a company sees the costs of delivery rising, increased labor costs, and a need to control inventory.

Google Glass 2.0 Is a Startling Second Act

Not Your Father's Flat Cable

Over the decades flat cable has been a favorite in high end computing, military and aerospace, robotics and motion control devices. Its advantages include superior flexibility, electronic noise abatement, and packaging efficiency. Its limiting factor over this time has been the need for unique termination techniques-prepping for connectors has largely required hand work.

3D Printing Will Make the Construction Industry More Sustainable

David Silverberg for Motherboard: Look at the past three years: In March 2017, Dubai construction firm Cazza said it plans to build the world's first 3D-printed skyscraper by 2020

Industrial Software for Simulation and Emulation

Companies who do not carry out emulation (or virtual commissioning) can only start controls testing when the real system is at least predominantly assembled, which means they are near ramp and handover, with a large amount of unpredictable testing yet to be started, and probably onsite and under close client scrutiny. Hardly the best of conditions for carrying out the methodical task of analytical verification, debugging and repair.
