A parts data wizard has made the integration of product data into the Eplan Data Portal much easier. This benefits both the manufacturer and the user. For the first time, more than 100 manufacturers will be represented in the portal when SPS IPC Drives in November starts. With comprehensive device data, the more than 90,000 portal users worldwide will be able to simplify and accelerate their engineering processes. The necessary macros, component data and 3D data for the construction of a virtual control cabinet can be easily and directly integrated into the CAE design.
Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s (NYSE: CW) Sensors & Controls division today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with German automobile manufacturer BMW Group to provide its Exlar® brand of integrated, roller screw driven electric actuators for use on robotic weld guns. Under the agreement, Curtiss-Wright will provide all required robotic weld gun actuators for two new facilities currently under construction in North America.
The new transducers in rod and profile housings with an Ethernet interface from Balluff offer multiple advantages for machine manufacturers and operators with respect to startup and machine output. The standardized communication protocols and automatic address assignment simplify integration of the transducer into the controller and the plant network. Because of this, a complex programming process is no longer necessary. This leads to a shortened machine startup time, low implementation costs and reduces fault sources simultaneously.
Offering highly reliable detection of air bubbles in medical dosing applications, the acclaimed range of air-in-line (AIL) sensors from Morgan Advanced Materials has been extended to provide two new capabilities in line with demand from medical original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Morgan Advanced Materials has developed a new, lighter weight, metallised current collector strip, based on proprietary material technology, which is set to bring a wide range of benefits for the rail sector.
Maxwell Technologies announced, the ultracapacitors powered voltage stabilization system (VSS) of Continental Automotive will be a standard feature on 2016 Cadillac ATS and CTS sedans and ATS coupes, excluding the ATS-V, CTS-V and CT6 models.
