NSK used the recent EMO 2017 exhibition in Hanover, Germany as the launch platform for a number of innovations designed to enhance machine tool performance. Among the major introductions was a new generation of DIN-standard ball screws. The high-speed, low-noise ball screws not only overcome the specific challenges of European machine tool applications, but also conform to DIN 69051 (ISO 3408) with regard to both dimensional and tolerance classes.
Moxa has partnered with Microsoft and the OPC Foundation to develop the MC-1121, an industrial-grade IoT gateway with an integrated OPC UA Publisher module. By using Windows 10 IoT and OPC UA Publisher, it provides an effortless way to get data from field side devices securely and reliably to the cloud for analytics and monitoring through a dashboard. The MC-1121 not only gives system integrators a scalable, flexible solution for their projects, but also opens up new opportunities and business models for them.
DSEI, London, 12 September 2017 – Fischer Connectors, the global innovator in push-pull circular connectors and cable assembly solutions, is showcasing its innovative ruggedized products designed to meet the growing needs for faster, more powerful and smaller solutions in defense & security applications at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) tradeshow.
Camille Bauer Metrawatt AG has combined, for the first time, the functionality of a highly accurate measurement device for heavy current applications with the capabilities of an integrated programmable logic controller. With this solution, closely coupled automation tasks can be carried out directly and flexibly by programmable logic. The advantage is evident. With this 2-in-1 concept, there is no need for additional components to implement the control task.
Information Technologies (IT) and Operational Technologies (OT) have long, isolated histories with many examples of failed attempts of integration in the Industrial Internet of Things. Historically, OT and IT functions did not overlap and were managed by separate departments, each with their own set of goals and responsibilities. However, smart factories of the future demands are evolving into the area of Internet of Things, which will inevitably lead to the overlap. The Industry 4.0 revolution is changing the existing structures in OT and IT leading to an increased demand for distributed data storage solutions, data processing networks, cloud services and data security in industrial environments.
Camille Bauer Metrawatt AG is introducing the SIRAX series of current transformers, on the principle of offering "everything from one source". This represents another milestone in the expansion of their product offering for heavy current engineering.
Following the manufacture by wet chemical processes, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients are precipitated or crystallized out from the solvent. The subsequent steps are usually isolation and drying.
Hygienic drying in a vacuum requires a lot of attributes. The innovative spherical dryer design provides the highest performance according process control and latest GMP standards. De Dietrich Process Systems is currently delivering several units in that field.
Delta, a world-class provider of industrial automation solutions, has announced its theme of “Digitalization and Flexibility for Smart, Green Manufacturing” for the Taipei Int’l Industrial Automation Exhibition 2017. Delta will feature its brand new High Flexibility Multi-tasking Smart Production Line with a customer-centric, IIoT-based, fully-automated demo which integrates Delta’s manufacturing execution system (MES), equipment management system, IIoT technology, industrial robots, and automation control solutions. At the exhibition, the demo will perform on-site smart manufacturing by taking customer orders, flexibly producing customized products, and presenting production process and equipment operation data in real-time.
Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announces that its Delta Americas Headquarters located in Fremont, Calif., was honored by UC Berkley’s Center for the Built Environment (CBE), earning an Honorable Mention in its 2017 Livable Buildings Award program. The superior sustainable design and high quality-of-life properties of Delta’s US LEED Platinum-certified, net-zero-energy designed green building were instrumental in receiving the honor. Based on its calculated energy usage in 2016, its Energy Use Intensity (EUI) achieved 21.6, indicating the facility saved 90 percent energy than traditional buildings (Average EUI: 212)*1. In July of this year, the building achieved full net-zero operation, with its solar energy generation surpassing consumption.
The sensor specialist Balluff has developed a new BTS infrared temperature sensor with IO-Link interface and two switching outputs. It can monitor temperatures between 250 and 1250 °C even in inaccessible or hazardous areas, detect hot objects in motion and record temperature values - all without contact.
