Branson™ GL-300 platform increases production capability and enables faster production start-up

Emerson has launched a new laser welder platform that provides high mix and batch manufacturers of plastic components with greater production capability, without compromising product quality or performance. The Branson™ GL-300 is a highly flexible quasi-simultaneous plastic joining solution, designed to deliver efficient high-quality welds in a wide range of applications and help manufacturers to increase production efficiency.

Manufacturers increasingly need machines and processes that can be quickly and cost-effectively adapted to changing production demands and specifications. For low volume, high mix manufacturers especially, flexible welding solutions that allow faster production start-up, provide a critical advantage. The Branson GL platform meets this need by combining highly efficient and accurate welds with cost-effective and easy-to-change tooling that enables faster set-up and adjustment for changing product specifications.

Manufacturing capability is further enhanced by a range of unique features including a high-quality scanning system, easy-to-use HMI, large (300mm x 300mm) weld area, multiple weld modes, variable spot size as low as 0.5 mm and an adjustable laser power source height. These enable the Branson GL-300 to support applications with different materials, application sizes and production speeds.

“For batch manufacturers looking for more efficient production processes, quasi-simultaneous laser welders provide a very flexible, cost-effective joining solution,” said Priyank Kishor, global product manager for Branson products at Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “The Branson GL-300 extends this flexibility by enabling the assembly of a broader range of components, helping to increase manufacturing capability and profitability.”

How the Combination of Artificial Intelligence and IoT Makes the Smart Factory a Reality

Artificial Intelligence and IoTPart 4 of the digital press conference series “Join us for a coffee...” took a look into the future of manufacturing and showed how industrial companies can increase efficiency, product quality and revenue by linking artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things – this time with the expertise of KUKA, Device Insight and Sentian.

When it comes to combining artificial intelligence and IoT, industry has so far clearly focused on predictive maintenance. “A mistake,” says Dr. Christian Liedtke, Head of Strategic Alliances at KUKA, with conviction.

Beckhoff Celebrates 25 Years of Bus Terminal I/O Technology

 

Beckhoff Celebrates 25 YearsJust 25 years ago, Beckhoff had an idea that revolutionized the automation technology of the time: The Bus Terminal combined fieldbus technology with the proven terminal block principle for the first time. The final result was developed together with Wago Kontakttechnik.

Beckhoff then presented the modular and open I/O system for space-saving, customizable and highly flexible configurations at the Hannover Messe trade show in 1995. As an industrial electronics and communication specialist, Beckhoff intentionally continued the advancement of the existing block module concept for the electronic terminal block.

Towards a Diesel-Free Mine

Diesel-Free MineThe European Union-funded SIMS project and the related field tests of Epiroc's battery-powered mining machines turned the eyes of the entire mining world to Kittilä. Now, the mine’s first own battery-powered rigs, two Boltec E Battery bolting units, have started in production.

It takes courage to be at the forefront of development, but the benefits to be achieved - an improved working environment and a reduced carbon footprint - are considered worthy at the Kittilä mine.

Planning a New Automation Project? Make Sure You Budget for Training and Development

 

JAEBy Eric Martin, C.E.T., JAE Automation

Conversations about automation technology and design often focus on one thing – the technology itself. We think of the high-tech robots, the automated conveyors, or the precision welding machines that make it possible for factories to operate more efficiently, productively, and safely.

However, any discussions around automation technology need to include the most important element – the people.
