Displays save the day in extreme weather
Extreme conditions place extreme demands on displays – they need to be relied on for instant-on performance capabilities no matter what the conditions. From the intense heat of the desert, to the ice-cold winds of the Arctic, to tropical storms, our rugged Lumineq TFEL displays from Crystal (more...)
Electronics add intelligence to plastics for longer life
Igus has been steadily adding smart capabilities to its plastics portfolio, and now it has enhanced its range by adding more intelligence for longer service life and low cost automation. By monitoring the health of linear guide systems, cables and energy chains continuously, timely warnings for (more...)
Laser distance sensing at under £2000
Sensors UK says the Dimetix D-Series lasers have market leading repeatability and reliability with a measurement range spanning 0.5m to 500m and maximum outputs rate of 1kHz. They are versatile performers in a wide range of applications where there is a need to measure the distance to objects that (more...)
Marstons is chilling with valves expertise
For Marstons brewery in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, replacing control valves on the main chiller system would improve reliability. However, the process control components were initially looking expensive – until a much more cost-effective solution was revealed. Replacing ageing (more...)
Miniature sensors for challenging object detection applications
Baumer has introduced a new range of optical miniature sensors which it says raise the standard of precisely detecting challenging objects across a wide range of applications. Slightly larger than a honey bee with a housing size of 8mm, 0200 miniature sensors provide reliable and excellent (more...)
Moving things forward – R&D in linear motion technology
We talk to Steve Rendall, design manager at HepcoMotion, a leading manufacturer in linear technology, about the role and future of research and development in linear motion systems. From high-speed packaging applications, to pick and place gantry systems to automated production cells, linear (more...)
New starting points for building a smart food factory
The ultimate goal of the smart factory is appealing, but the journey can seem daunting, especially in sectors such as food and beverage where margins are tight. But taking the first steps can be easier than you might think. Food producers currently span the full automation spectrum, from huge (more...)
Non-contact chocolate inspection
feast for the eyes. Perfect appearance conveys a sense of sophistication and full chocolate flavour. Modern 2D/3D laser profile sensors (laser scanners) from Micro-Epsilon are directly integrated in chocolate processing lines, enabling inline, real time inspection of complete product ranges, based (more...)
Overcoming torsional vibration in the drive train
Vibration can be present in any drive train, and if left unchecked, can be the root cause of pre-mature wear or even catastrophic failure. David Proud of Reich Drive Systems explains how to overcome the potentially damaging effects of vibration using drive couplings with a high torsional (more...)
Precision control of dynamic processes
B&R is giving its ACOPOSmulti multi-axis servo drives a performance boost. They can now achieve cycle times as fast as 50μs. Highly dynamic processes can now be controlled more precisely than ever. For demanding motion control applications, such as those found in the printing and packaging (more...)
