Understanding resolution for your vision application
Many who are new to machine vision and image processing, struggle with how to select a camera with the correct resolution for their application. A calculation can give you a good head start to determining your camera needs, but as Paul Scardino of Baumer explains, ultimately a practical evaluation (more...)
User-customisable photoelectric sensors
Sick has developed the SureSense family of user-customisable photo-electric sensors – a concept that enables machine builders and plant engineers to specify from a wide-range of sensing options all within a standard technology, set-up, mounting and housing. The durable SureSense sensors can (more...)
Vibration analysis helps crisp producer reduce downtime
Crisp production is a round the clock effort, with incoming raw potatoes washed, peeled, sliced and fried. Flavour is added and the crisps are then bagged and packaged ready for delivery to customers. For one UK producer, the reliability and availability of assets has been boosted thanks to regular (more...)
What is the smallest speed increment on a servo motor?
Andrew Fallows of Motor Technology considers a frequently asked question on the issue of speed control and offers some advice to engineers. When designing a drive system, particularly for critical applications, there are a number of issues that might seem self evident or obvious but are (more...)
