Panel Builder System Integrator

The complexity of automated bin picking is well-known throughout the industry, requiring huge efforts in both integration and programming. Today, most bin picking products are solely focused on the vision aspect of bin picking and often require hundreds of lines of additional programming to bridge the gap from “pick” to “place” – especially if the “place” is not just dropping into a box or tote but accurately inserting the part into a fixture for further processing.

 

 

 

The KDL/D cable entry system allows cables to be installed through enclosures or other bulkhead surfaces, with the added benefit that pre-made, terminated cables can be installed without disassembling the connectors. The split-frame system enables the quick and simple installation of up to 48 cables in a single frame.

 

 

 

A lot of safety-related troubleshooting requires the input of a safety expert, but what happens when you need answers ASAP and a safety specialist isn’t available? With the right technologies, many safety issues can be resolved without extensive expertise.

 

 

 

The podis power bus system provides decentralized and flexible power distribution for factories, airports and warehouses. With its unique design and connection technology, the podis system is easy, fast, & safe to install and maintain. The new 5-core tray cable system provides higher load capacity to allow for more drives per segment and longer cable sections. Compared to other installations that require long cable lengths, the voltage drop along the bus is significantly reduced.

 

 

 

Littelfuse, Inc., a global manufacturer of technologies in circuit protection, power control, and sensing, recently announced the expansion of its SPXI series in-line solar fuses to include 35 to 60 amperage models. Designed to integrate into in-line assemblies within a wire harness, these 1500 V DC solar fuses protect photovoltaic (PV) installations from overloads and short circuits to minimize damage to solar panels.

 

 

 

AS-Interface has long proven itself as a user-friendly and cost-effective wiring technology for the industrial sector. To increase the variety of available components and expand the range of possible applications, Pepperl+Fuchs has developed two new CB10 series modules: One for connecting 3-wire sensors with their own power supply to an AS-Interface network, and another module with SIL 3/PL e certification for integrating emergency stop buttons into control boxes.

 

 

 

The HYTEC‐100 is designed to control the relative humidity inside of  enclosures and electrical panels. The HYTEC‐100 starts the heater in order to avoid formation of condensation in enclosures designed to protect electronic circuits, preventing the absorption of moisture by electrical and electronic components inside of the enclosure.

 

 

 

Siemens presents Sitrans LR100 series 80 GHz radar transmitters, compact instruments with a narrow beam for flexible installations in existing vessel openings—or even non-intrusively through plastic vessels. The transmitters’ 80GHz high frequency delivers robust, reliable measurements even in challenging environments such as those with vapors, condensation, turbulence, or solids. The custom microchip technology delivers fast response and extremely high sensitivity to detect even the weakest of signals.

 

 

 

Festo’s new compact VAEM solenoid valve controller for multi-head micro-dispensing in pharmaceutical manufacturing and laboratory applications provides individualized control and calibration of up to eight solenoid valves. The compact, lightweight and energy-efficient VAEM is ideal for applications requiring high speed and a low coefficient of variation (CV).

 

 

 

Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, the HARTING Technology Group has taken numerous measures to protect its employees on the one hand, while ensuring that customers continue to benefit from a reliable supply of HARTING products and solutions on the other. "The protection of employees, but also maintaining the supply chain, is our top priority," as Philip Harting, CEO of the HARTING Technology Group underscored. HARTING supplies renowned manufacturers of medical and respiratory equipment with customer-specific cable assemblies.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

ABB to Upgrade Paper Machine Drives, Motors and Electrical Control Systems at Westrock Mill in Washington, USA

ABBWestRock Company—a provider of differentiated paper and packaging solutions—has selected ABB to replace its dry end drive system. This includes upgrades to its PM12 paper machine drives, motors and the installation of the ABB Ability System 800xA control system at its mill in Longview, Washington, USA. Installation and commissioning of the project is planned for completion by year-end 2020.

“ABB was chosen for this project based on the customer’s positive experience with our drives systems at its Longview mill and other WestRock sites,” said Steve St. Jarre, Head of Business Development, Pulp and Paper, Process Industries, ABB.

How Collaborative Robots Fit Into the Production Facilities of the Future

Collaborative RobotsThe relationship between humans and robots in manufacturing is constantly evolving. Technology advancements and safety improvements have made it possible for manufacturers to move robots out from behind the cage to interact more closely with workers. Depending on the type of application, this collaboration can open new possibilities for increased productivity, efficiency, and flexibility.

That said, collaborative robots, or cobots, are not going to replace traditional robots entirely. Instead, cobots serve as just another tool in the toolbelt when determining the right equipment to implement on the factory floor.
