Panel Builder System Integrator

October 3, 2019

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. The HC10 and HC10DT are six-axis collaborative models designed to eliminate operator pinch points while through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment.

Ideal for novice robot programmers, both models offer intuitive robot programming with a quick and easy learning curve. Utilizing the Smart Pendant, the HC10 can be hand-guided for easy positioning of the robot. The HC10DT (direct teach) offers intuitive robot path programming through the use of three easy-to-use programming buttons.

Precision hand-guiding for teaching new program paths allows the HC10 and HC10DT to be quickly deployed or redeployed on demand, decreasing system downtime and increasing ROI. Whether operating at full speed on industrial mode or collaborative speed on PFL mode, cycle times are optimized based upon risk assessments and process requirements. 

Both models offer a 10-kg payload and 1,200 mm reach and can perform a broad range of material handling, machine tending or light assembly tasks. Function-specific tooling and accessories are available from various Yaskawa partners.

The HC10 collaborative robot leverages Yaskawa’s long history of building robots that are durable and reliable, resulting in minimal downtime.

The HC10 robot is controlled by Yaskawa’s high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC. The YRC1000 is compact (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), resulting in reduced space requirements. The HC10DT is controlled by the ultra-compact YRC1000micro controller. Its small footprint (425 W x 125 H x 280 D mm) and lightweight cabinet are ideal for factories with high-density layouts, where stacking of controllers may be required.

A Smoother Way to Manage Part Programs in the Digital Age

MazakSince the dawn of computer science more than two centuries ago, one thing has remained constant: Programming and data entry are tougher than they look. From the first computers’ punch cards to today’s programming languages, a single, minor error can mean the difference between a functional program and a crashed computer. And when a buggy program is run on a CNC machine tool, it likely won’t just be the computer that crashes.

In the decades since manufacturing entered the digital age, OEMs like Mazak continue to develop a comprehensive range of solutions to simplify programming, including MAZATROL conversational programming.

Measure, Analyse, Report, Solve: Measuring Your Energy Usage to Diagnose Where to Make Savings

Measuring Energy usageJohn Mitchell

According to the Carbon Trust, cash savings of up to 20 per cent can be achieved through energy efficiency measures such as installing variable-speed drives (VSD) for fans, pumps, and other motor driven systems. But, a one size fits all approach to energy savings just won’t do.

Here, John Mitchell, global sales & marketing director at supply, installation and repair specialist CP Automation, explains how plants should measure their energy usage to find the best energy saving opportunities. The ISO 50001 standard requires organisations to establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system.

Coming Soon: The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8, Virtual control cabinet engineering – fully matured

The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8 is making its first big appearance at the SPS IPC Drives. The software for virtual 3D control cabinet engineering is characterised by its expanded flexibility, surprising users with a brand new 4K-capable user interface. It’s also causing decision-makers to sit up and take notice: during live, joint presentations in Nuremberg, EPLAN and Rittal will be introducing a whole series of innovations in the context of control cabinet engineering.

These include complementary software solutions for engineering and preplanning operations, innovative system technology for housings, power distribution and climate-control systems, automation technologies, and digital assistance systems for integrated automation of manufacturing processes. EPLAN and Rittal are thereby positioning themselves as solutions providers offering integrated solutions for optimising processes in control cabinet engineering: combined machine/hardware and software solutions, product-accompanying data and comprehensive on-site process integration services for customers.
