Panel Builder System Integrator

Aluminum and copper conductors can be installed quickly, easily, and safely in the new UL-approved UBAL Al/Cu terminal blocks from Phoenix Contact. The contact chambers are pre-lubricated with antioxidants to simplify conductor pretreatment. The clamping part is made from an aluminum alloy. The lead-free tin surface enables both aluminum and copper conductors to be connected in the same terminal block.

 

 

 

You will be impressed by the new TRIO POWER power supplies with IP67 protection from Phoenix Contact, which feature a weatherproof design for use in harsh industrial environments as well as under extreme ambient conditions.

 

 

 

4mm (smooth) and 5mm (M5 threaded) round photoelectric sensors are now available from AutomationDirect in a wider range of sensing distances in both diffuse and through-beam sensing configurations. These DC-powered metal sensors provide high accuracy in minimal mounting space and are ideal for use in a variety of short or long-distance sensing applications.

 

 

 

The NITRA pneumatic AC Series of coalescing air filters from AutomationDirect allows finer removal of moisture, vapor and oil mist from compressed air applications to provide optimal performance for pneumatic systems and components. NITRA coalescing filters are available in a range of port sizes from 1/8" to 1/2" FNPT; replaceable 0.3-micron filter elements are standard, with an optional 0.01-micron filter element available for stricter filtration requirements.

 

 

 

The smallest robot controller in its class, the ultra-compact YRC1000micro minimizes installation space and optimizes performance with power and precision. A small footprint and lightweight cabinet make the YRC1000micro ideal for factories with high density layouts, where stacking of controllers may be required.

 

 

 

Introduced specifically for manufacturers branching out into robotics, the new Smart Series suite of products allows quick and easy implementation of a robot system. The Smart Series product line includes Yaskawa’s HC10DT, MotoMini, GP7, GP8 and GP12 robots as well as the Smart Pendant and the YRC1000micro robot controller.

 

 

 

Yaskawa Cockpit is a new software platform that monitors, accumulates and visually delivers operational data in real time for networked production environments. This state-of-the-art data collection and visualization software tool easily connects hardware devices across an entire production environment for asset management, predictive maintenance analysis, alarm notification and data management.

 

 

 

The next generation of robot programming, Smart Pendant radically changes the way a robot is programmed, providing simplified programming and fast implementation. Its easy-to-understand, tablet-based interface offers a simple learning curve compared to the standard pendant and is ideal for novice robot programmers.

 

 

 

Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the GP7, GP8 and GP12 robots are fast, compact and efficient. Each of these six-axis robots offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in its class.

 

 

 

Featuring power and force limiting technology, Yaskawa Motoman’s HC10 and HC10DT robots work safely with, or in close proximity to humans by stopping the robot in the event of contact with an operator. Dual channel torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly react to contact.

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.


Emerson’s New Easy-to-deploy Monitoring Accelerates Asset Digitalization

Emerson MonitoringEmerson recently introduced the AMS Asset Monitor edge analytics device, which digitalizes essential asset data and analytics for better operations performance and improved decision making. AMS Asset Monitor provides actionable insights into essential assets that were previously monitored only with infrequent assessments. The new edge analytics device will connect with Emerson’s Plantweb Optics asset performance platform to provide key operations personnel with instant asset health details for operations and maintenance decision making.

Printing With Precision – Improving Existing High-Speed Equipment

JAE LogoThe Scenario

A high-speed printing company had partially completed an upgrade to their equipment. The printing machine used two alternating print heads to produce units at a rate of more than 11/s. Due to the nature of the product, speed, accuracy, and repeatability were extremely important. The process needed to be consistent as any defect would impact production further down the line.

To ensure there were no errors, the units would pass through a vision system designed to detect defects and other irregularities. A mechanical reject system would then remove any defected units from the line.

Important safety considerations for machine shop equipment

OmronIf not properly safeguarded, machine shop equipment is capable of seriously injuring an operator. Lathes, band saws and other simple machines can cut or even sever a finger or a limb. Due to the major potential for harm, it’s essential for manufacturers to comply with all mandated safety standards for the types of machines they employ.

What are the standards?

To get started with machine shop equipment safety compliance, manufacturers can look up the safety standards applicable to their region. In the United States, relevant standards are sorted into the following three categories:
