  1. I have some new products that we will be introducing into the machine tool industry that will be required for a machine tool data storage must meet to be used on any US government project. I am trying to identify what controllers have local data storage and how there programs are loaded into the machine. Do they use flash cards, floppy disks, USB or network attached. It would be helpful to talk to someone.
