Exploring ways for shops of all sizes to amplify productivity, Mazak’s All Axes LIVE September event takes place on September 23 at 11:00 a.m. EDT. This episode will stream live from Mazak’s manufacturing plant in Florence, Kentucky, and the company’s new Orlando Technical Center, as well as from Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

 

 

 

A well-trained team is crucial for manufacturing success. That’s why Mazak has long offered a Progressive Learning program with hands-on training for all of their equipment at Technology and Technical Centers across North America. However, as with most aspects of life in 2020, COVID-19 has changed the way they approach training at Mazak – and with the help of advanced technology, Mazak have made it more accessible than ever, with remote learning opportunities that have been so popular that they’ll remain a staple of their educational programs going forward.

 

 

 

FANUC America recently unveiled its new visual twin demo at JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation’s Open House at their Arlington Heights, IL facility on Sept. 15-17, 2020. A visual twin is a next-generation, high-resolution version of a digital twin, which is an exact software replica of a real CNC machine tool with a virtualized CNC.

In the world of electronics, signal conditioning is the manipulation of a signal (which is typically analog) so it can be used for the next stage in the process. In this video, Karen and Zach discuss signal manipulation, isolation, conversion, amplification, and splitting. In the Control Cabinet Classroom video series, Phoenix Contact Product Specialists Zach and Karen break down some of the basics of control cabinet design, terminology and technology to be able to better understand and utilize this powerful solution.

 

 

 

After a lengthy period of connector manufacturers pursuing various approaches with regard to M12 PushPull locks, IEC 61076-2-010 is now finally bringing a system that is consistent across the industry. Or at least that is the opinion held by Dirk-Peter Post, Head of Global Product Management Circular Interface Connectors, Harting Electronics, and Jürgen Sahm, Senior Specialist Product Marketing Circular Connectors, Phoenix Contact, in this interview.

What happens to your product when it leaves the warehouse? Can you see when it’s delivered to your customer? Do you know which batch was sent to which retailer? Can you tell what condition it was in when it arrived or who was responsible for it at any given time? With so much data and technology, the ability to trace your entire supply chain from component to customer is becoming a reality for small and medium manufacturers.

 

 

 

FANUC America’s popular Machining Simulation for Workforce Development provides virtual training for controls operation and part programming. To help solve the shortage of 5-axis machining operators, the new 5-axis training simulation addition allows users to learn how to setup and work with three common advanced 5-axis milling machines: mixed type, tool type and table type. A 3-axis mill and a 2-axis lathe are also provided for maximum configuration flexibility.

 

 

 

What on earth is a "channel monitor"! And then also in connection with the term "selective"? Images of gigantic ocean-going vessels quickly form on their way through the Kiel Canal, saving themselves the 250-mile detour through the North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat. And because the pilot prefers to check his message status on his smartphone instead of doing his actual work, he only monitors the channel passage selectively!

This often requires machines to be fenced-in with access being provided via lockable doors, however, a lockable door can also present its own hazard.

All Happening Live: the Eplan Virtual Fair

Rittal and EplanLast year Eplan welcomed around 1,400 attendees from 73 countries to its international Virtual Fair. Impressive figures – and that in times before such virtual formats had become the standard almost everywhere. This year the interest in new, innovative Leadership Talks, practice-oriented webcasts and worldwide chats for talking shop with other users is likely to increase again.

This year’s Eplan Virtual Fair has a full sixteen-hour programme planned. This year marks the fifth edition of the global “trade show on the net”, which has enjoyed a continually growing number of visitors from all around the world. The fair will be broadcasting, presenting and chatting live from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm (CEST).

Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.

Condition Monitoring Sensor With Integrated Data Preprocessing

Condition Monitoring SensorUnscheduled stops and faults in the production process can be avoided using our new multi-functional condition monitoring sensor. This intelligent sensor provides you with condition information which you can use for automating costintensive manual inspections. This condition data is also an essential component for implementing smart and flexible manufacturing – a key to IIoT.

The Balluff condition monitoring sensor detects various physical variables such as vibration, temperature, relative humidity, and ambient pressure, processes them, and provides the desired data to a host system via IO-Link.
