Customized automation solutions from visual process control to robotic parts handling: Automation of laser marking can help manage increasing marking requirements and save costs in the production process. Especially in the context of increasing traceability marking regulations, the direct part marking is on the rise. Therefore, FOBA, in cooperation with automation experts, offers technical solutions that make the marking process more efficient for industrial customers. How this is implemented differs individually.
Applications based on innovative AI technology are becoming increasingly popular and finding their way into numerous industrial areas. With the AI platform NRU-120S and integrated Jetson AGX Xavier module from Nvidia, the German distributor Acceed offers a cost-efficient solution for future AI edge computing applications. The compact device has a robust, fanless design in accordance with industrial requirements and convinces with a mere 30 W energy consumption with the same GPU performance offered my a mainstream GPU PC with 120 W. At the same time, the NRU-120S is low-service and equipped with the essential interfaces.
Schmalz has the right handling solution for every sheet metal and is presenting it at the 15th Blechexpo in Stuttgart - in Hall 1 at Stand 1107. This includes new grippers and convenient vacuum lifters.
ANDRITZ has received an order from Asia Symbol (Guangdong) Paper to supply a complete tissue production line – from stock preparation to a double-width tissue machine (TM13), including automation – for energy-efficient production of high-quality grades at its mill in Jiangmen Xinhui, China.
Fiber optics typically offers many advantages over conventional electrical and electronic systems, but often times a harsh environment can make the use of glass fiber difficult. Fortunately, the Diamond AVIM® connector family is specifically designed and built for these conditions.
The new DAB10 measuring amplifiers with IO-Link simplify commissioning and enable optimum parameterization of additional functions and signal conditioning for all strain gauge-based force sensors of any manufacturer. Thanks to parameterization via IO-Link, users can also profit from these benefits when using conventional analogue outputs. The measuring amplifier is available as an all-IO-Link variant or as a variant with voltage or current output with two additional digital I/Os. Force measurement has never been easier while being future-oriented in parallel.
TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) presents a new series of very compact EPCOS X2 capacitors for noise suppression. They are rated for 275 V AC and cover a capacitance spectrum from 33 nF to 1 µF. Depending on the capacitance value, the interference suppression components have lead spaces of 10 mm (B32921X* / Y*), 15 mm (B32922X* / Y*) and 22.5 mm (B32923X* / Y*).
Foremost Electronics, the engineering-led Essex based importer and specialist distributor of electromechanical components, can now offer machine builders and process control system designers one of the most comprehensive and versatile ranges of HMI support arms available from a single source.
