<![CDATA[Drive efficiency and the cost effectiveness of Gas Analysis with the new automated AGC Carrier Gas Purifier]]>
The AGC Carrier Gas Purifier ensures reliable and cost effective operations for gas chromatography systems. It supplies the essential high purity gas supply which is necessary to run sensitive Ionisation Detectors such as the AGC Discharge Ionisation Detector (DID) and the AGC Argon Discharge Detector (ADD). These two detectors require pure Helium and pure Argon respectively and by having a low ppb impurity level in carrier and detector gases, longer instrument life spans and better sensitivities are achieved, thus saving companies both time and money.

The AGC Purifier is based on heating purifying pellets which have been coated with a thin oxide layer. When these pellets are heated, impurities in the gas stream passed over them are trapped. By continuously diffusing the impurities into the purifying material, a fresh reactive surface is maintained. This reaction will ensure that the output gas is produced at least 2 grades better than the input gas.

The AGC Carrier Gas Purifier typically purifies Grade 5.5 Helium or Argon to Grade 6.5 or better depending on the application required. This reliable workmate also purifies utility gases for:

• Continuous Spectral Emission
• Analysers for N2 in Argon Purity
• Analysers for N2 in Helium Purity

AGC Instruments, along with our network of highly qualified distributors, work closely with all our customers to provide the best solutions for their exacting needs. From the consultancy and engineering process to factory acceptance testing, guaranteed applications are provided with reliable after sales support.]]>

In the first video Ian Collins, Product Manager at West Control Solutions, discusses the important role of cascade control in the manufacturing process, focusing on when it is needed and the processes involved. He provides a detailed example of an application using cascade control. The benefits of cascade control to manufacturers include improved control performance due to faster responsiveness, which results in less fluctuation in control, less waste and a more efficient system due to reduced risk of damage to the final product.

The second video, ‘How to Set up Cascade Control’, offers a clear and concise explanation of the concept of cascade control and gives typical application examples of how and when it should be used, for example, where there is a lag in the system that may lead to overshoot and, ultimately, overheating the product. The video explains how cascade control improves performance due to faster responsiveness, minimising overshoot and fluctuation in control. It is a valuable tool to aid manufacturers in the correct and appropriate application of cascade control, resulting in a reduced risk of damaging the end product, minimised waste and a more efficient system.

The Pro-EC44 provides not only Cascade Control but also dual loop facility and five PID sets for gain scheduling. It is the perfect temperature control solution for a wide range of challenging applications, from industrial ovens and furnaces, laboratory and testing equipment to food and beverage processing.

<![CDATA[Improving the Consistency & Efficiency of Early Drug Discovery]]>
A senior scientist at the UK organisation commented “Our lab is extremely satisfied with the decision we made to purchase and incorporate INTEGRA’s VIAFLO II multichannel pipettes and the VIAFLO ASSIST pipetting assistant into our daily work. We use the VIAFLO ASSIST for automated multichannel pipetting applications including serial dilutions for a variety of assays such as ELISA’s and proliferation assays. For assays in which repeat dispensing is needed, the ASSIST is also used for preparation of assay plates”. She added “Our lab also has a robotic system, but for lower number of plates the VIAFLO ASSIST is preferred because its set up is very quick”. The spokesperson concluded “Overall the consistency of assays has been improved due to the use of the new VIAFLO II pipettes and the automated pipetting capabilities of the VIAFLO ASSIST. Because VIAFLO ASSIST is easy to use, more people within our lab are integrating it into their daily work routines. The VIAFLO ASSIST has also helped us to improve efficiency, for example when we perform sandwich ELISAs. While one plate is being coated with antibody or buffer, another plate can be washed on a plate washer, so that these different tasks can be done in parallel”.

Multichannel pipettes are a valuable tool for laboratories working with microplates. However, prolonged and repetitive pipetting sessions pose the risk of strain and fatigue, which can result in repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and less reproducible results. The VIAFLO ASSIST together with INTEGRA’s VIAFLO II electronic pipettes form the perfect partnership to prevent users from RSI and to significantly increase the reproducibility of prolonged pipetting protocols such as serial dilutions, plate filling and reagent addition. By mounting a VIAFLO II electronic pipette on the VIAFLO ASSIST, the pipette’s protocols can be carried out fully automatically.

<![CDATA[Simatic MV400 with increased flexibility and extended application sope]]>
The new functions include read-in of dot codes. These are often used in applications involving low product unit prices, as poor product marking can be compensated by a larger marking surface and error correction mechanisms. Another new function is ‘uncalibrated verification to ISO29158’. This allows the marking quality trend within a production run to be cost-effectively detected with minimum mechancial effort. Parameterization of the Simatic MV420 and MV440 optical reading systems can now also take place offline by using separate hardware, allowing test programs to be optimized without interrupting processes. As the parameter set generated offline can subsequently be transferred to the reading system in the plant, disruption to running production is kept to a minimum. In addition, cycle times are significantly reduced for applications involving object recognition (Pat-Genius) and text recognition (Text-Genius/Text-Genius Plus) as well as recognition of high-contrast, easily separable plain text.]]>

<![CDATA[Future-proof cabling: New IE FastConnect plug for universal cabling]]> IE cable assembly is simplified by using the Industrial Ethernet Fast-Connect stripping tool. This enables simple handling and rapid, error-free contacting of the cable at the plug. The process is supported firstly by color coded insulation displacement contacts matching the core colors in the cable. In addition, up to eight cores can be inserted into the core manager of the RJ45 plug. These are able to exit above and below the connector without any length restriction. When closing the two housing covers, core contacting takes place using the insulation displacement method and at the same time the excess projecting cores are cut off to the right length. The plug is then immediately ready for use. Installation is possible under even the most hostile industrial conditions, as the connector has no parts which can be lost.]]> Thu, 16 Oct 2014 14:49:41 +0200 <![CDATA[LPKF - Prototyping 3D Circuitry ]]> LPKF ProtoPlate LDS

With ProtoPlate, LPKF closes a gap in prototyping three-dimensional molded interconnect devices. With laser direct structuring, a laser beam applies strip conductor structures onto a three-dimensional plastic component. Copper and other metal layers are then deposited on these structures in a currentless metallization process.

Creating Strip Conductors in a Beaker
The new ProtoPlate reduces the processing effort required for metallization considerably. Metallization of three- dimensional interconnect devices can now be carried out in your own laboratory without any appreciable chemical knowledge. The LPKF ProtoPlate basic package consists of an integrated processing cell with beaker, magnetic stirrer, temperature monitor and internal air filtering. The chemical consumables for the copper build-up are summarized in the LPKF ProtoPlate CU set.

As Easy as Making Coffee
Metallization is very easy: The clean structured components are immersed in the bath and metallization begins after a few minutes. Depending on the duration of the metallization process, uniform copper layers develop with a thickness of 3 μm to 10 μm on the plastic component. Finally, the LDS components are removed and rinsed.]]>

<![CDATA[Optimised filling technology with the BEUMER fillpac:]]>
The intralogistics professional has expanded its product portfolio with
the BEUMER fillpac filling machine offering, as single-source provider,
equipment and systems for packaging lines from one source. The new machine
can be flexibly integrated with existing packaging lines and can be
optimally adapted to the customer’s situation. What makes the BEUMER
fillpac unique is a specific weighing electronics which ensures the weight
accuracy of the bags. Rejects caused by too high or too low filling
weights can nearly be excluded.

The BEUMER fillpac is equipped with a weighing unit that communicates
permanently with the filler neck via a specific software. The automatic
bag weight adjustment determines the exact filling weight of the bags,
thus enabling the exact degrees of filling during the filling process. The
user can design his packaging lines more efficiently as it is no longer
necessary to remove under or overweight bags from the line. In addition,
the quantity indicated on the bag always corresponds to the real volume.

The BEUMER fillpac is designed for capacities ranging from 300 to 6,000
bags per hour and can fill various bag types. If equipped with a special
bag placer, it can even fill HDPE bags. The three-position cylinder that
regulates the coarse and fine flow is protected from dust, because it is
positioned vertically and outside of the dirty area. The cylinder for bag
discharging is also located in the dust-free zone above the filling spout.
This solution minimises wear and tear on both cylinders and, therefore,
ensures longer service life.

Almost all built-in components of the BEUMER fillpac are freely available
commercially. This reduces delivery times for spare parts and lowers
capital costs for the user. Also, the system is designed so that it is
easily accessible for maintenance. The generously dimensioned filling
impeller reduces fill times, thus increasing throughput. The BEUMER system
is also equipped with an ergonomic control terminal. The improved
human-machine interface concept makes work simple and intuitive.
Furthermore, BEUMER has designed the system in a way that individual
customer requirements or special wishes can be implemented flexibly and
cost-effectively.]]>

<![CDATA[2S 48T+TA201 AC: SINGLE BATH CLEANING PROCESS FOR HIGH QUALITY SPRINGS]]> There are some specific fields, such as biomedical and aeronautical, in which these products must have precise characteristics and meet very stringent requirements. It is precisely in these sectors that the surface cleaning process plays a key role.
Thanks to the experience and with the aim to satisfy these customers, MEG presents a new innovative plant, the degreasing machine 2S 48/T+TA20/1 AC.
The new MEG plant consists in a multi-stage degreasing bath, plus a second bath with a mere compensation function. The plant is already prepared for a possible upgrade with ultrasound technology.
The purpose is to eliminate the dirt due to the passage of the parts in the various departments and in the workshop, the oils that may remain after the drawing operation and the patina that can be created with the accidental contact with the operators’ hands during winding, which can all cause serious damage to the springs subjected to the heat treatment.
In the baskets, the springs are placed on a jig since, as they are delicate objects, this minimises the risk of deformations. The first stage consists in an immersion cleaning process with a temperature below 40°C and characterised by a tilting movement transmitted by a mechanical arm. Subsequently, the parts undergo a vapour cleaning step, in which the second smallest bath is heated at a temperature higher than 40°C:
The basket locks into place and is hit by the beam of steam.
The third cleaning cycle is the most intense one, intended for the components that will have to undergo the hardening process or for the parts produced by machining from solid. Before the tempering stage after the hardening process, the parts are cleaned so that the tempering oil does not catch fi re in the oven.
All of this always takes place in the same station, designed to maintain the liquid as clean as possible.
After the cleaning operations, the baskets stop at the drying station and then pass into an area equipped with a cold ring that brings the temperature below 40°C and lets the solvent drip in the tank. The filtration of chips and oils occurs through a mechanical separator; as regards the maintenance operations, periodical tank cleaning and emptying cycles are planned.]]>

<![CDATA[The CombiMAX - the Faymonville star presented at the "JDL" in Marseille]]>
he CombiMAX can be tailored individually to every transport requirement. New components and methods have been developed especially for this concept.

The bogies are available with pendle axles, with axles on independent suspension in the Twin-Axle-II version as well as in knuckle-steered variants – and all of them have the same interface, because all axle systems are controlled by a newly developed and universally usable gooseneck: the "ONE-NECK-TECHNOLOGY" from Faymonville - unique and revolutionary in the transport industry.

The combination of three coupling systems is also new:

Universal coupling head with bolt coupling
Hook adaptor
Installable telescopic centre beam ("Add-On Beam")
The combination of these three systems enables versatility, speed and efficiency with regard to the customer’s widely varying transport requirements. Thanks to the universal coupling head, the direct connection of components of different heights (tyres) and widths is also easily possible.

This creates countless possibilities and each individual component of the CombiMAX construction kit can be used more frequently and accordingly be amortised faster. Total investment in the vehicle fleet is thus considerably reduced.

The maximum technical axle load of the different types of bogies was defined on the basis of a minimum speed of 30 km/h. This leads to a considerable optimisation of the dead weight compared to known modular axle lines.

Despite the weight optimisation, an enormous bending moment across all bogie variants is achieved by the use of high-strength fine-grained steels and a new frame design.

Particular importance was attached during the development to the simple operability of the overall concept. The intuitive operator guidance significantly increases safety and reduces the risk of incorrect handling.]]>

<![CDATA[Bentley Systems Acquires SITEOPS to Advance Site Engineering to Site Optioneering ]]> Site Optimization Technology for BIM Advancement

LOS ANGELES, Calif., U.S.A. – 2014 ZweigWhite Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference – Sept. 25, 2014 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, today announced that it has acquired Charlotte, N.C.-based BLUERIDGE Analytics, Inc., provider of SITEOPS – breakthrough site design optimization “software at your service.” SITEOPS uses cloud-based computing techniques to empower site development professionals to move beyond engineering to optioneering, which enables the exploration of engineering alternatives and their costs. This substantially improves the choices considered for any site development, including commercial, industrial, institutional, campus, and residential projects.

Specifically, SITEOPS enables civil engineering professionals, real estate developers, and land planners to:
• perform site configuration simulations that fully assess millions of layout, parking, grading, and drainage options for a site within hours instead of spending months evaluating a handful of options,
• produce preliminary cost estimates and conceptual designs faster,
• optimize site designs through advanced optioneering, and
• minimize overall costs while ensuring engineering quality.
Among the many users of SITEOPS are Stantec, Horrocks Engineers, Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, Timmons Group, and WSP.

Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “On behalf of all our colleagues, I welcome the highly industrious and talented SITEOPS team to Bentley. During the past few years we’ve been tracking SITEOPS technology and its performance in order to authoritatively validate its breakthrough capabilities. Feedback we’ve received from engineering teams and owners has substantiated SITEOPS’ tremendous potential in enabling site development teams to deliver new value to owners. Through the power of site optioneering, owners can be confident that their engineers have considered the best choices and arrived at the most cost-effective solutions for the constraints of their respective sites. Hence, I’ve become convinced that site engineering should no longer be done any other way.”

Mike Detwiler, formerly president and CEO of BLUERIDGE Analytics and now Bentley vice president, SITEOPS product development, said, “To date, the development of SITEOPS technology has focused on continuous improvement to conceptual designs. Now, within Bentley’s comprehensive portfolio, SITEOPS’ BIM advancement can contribute throughout project delivery. Accordingly, an initial priority will be to complete the end-to-end workflows that Bentley is uniquely able to offer – from site development through detailed design and construction modeling.”

What SITEOPS users are saying

“Working early with SITEOPS was very innovative and beneficial for us in terms of time required to take a site from start to open for business. Each day we saved in this process equated to approximately $100,000 in sales revenue. We were able to save conservatively 10 days per store while opening an average of 140 stores per year. You do the math. SITEOPS not only helped us generate additional revenue, but was also efficient in helping us reduce cost.” – David Shelton, Senior VP (retired), Real Estate, Lowes Home Improvement

“We looked at what SITEOPS could do on one of our residential subdivisions currently under design. We were amazed at how fast we could perform optimum yield analyses and get initial optimized grading and retaining wall plans and budgets from the software.” – Randy Bauer, Director of Community Development and Acquisitions for the Trilogy Division of Shea Homes

“SITEOPS makes civil engineering fun again. We’ve done SITEOPS demos with dozens of clients to date, and not one has ever left the room without saying ‘Wow!’” – Mark Eisses, P.E., Principal, Map Ltd.

“Using SITEOPS is like having 1,000 engineers and site work estimators on staff, without the overhead cost.” – Steve Thomas, P.E., MESH Consulting

“SITEOPS is an incredible tool and has saved a project more than once. Our clients are amazed by the speed at which we can create the initial design, make modifications and generate associated costs. A recent project almost fell through because of tight cost constraints but we were able to quickly show the client a few options that were within their budget. The project moved forward only because of SITEOPS.” – Steven Lewis, P.E., Pennoni Associates Inc.

<![CDATA[Safe drinking water installations with lead free solenoid valves]]> The Drinking Water Directive 98/83/EC defines a maximum lead content of 10 µg/l in drinking water for the European Union. This limit came into force on 01.12.2013.
In the USA the Safe Drinking Water Act came into effect in 2014. Along with the ‘Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act’, the ‘Safe Drinking Water Act’ limits the lead content to 0.25 % in total for all installation components such as pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey or dispense drinking water.

Thus, the selection of suitable materials is one of the most important aspects of sustainable and safe drinking water installations. Therefore, lead-containing metal components such as brass should be eliminated to be on the safe side.

The solenoid valve manufacturer A. u. K. Müller have already been using plastic materials in contact with media for years. By using high-performance plastics, both the high mechanical stress on the valve and the strict requirements for components in drinking water applications can be fulfilled. Thus, the installer, either from the sanitary, vending or food processing market, is not left alone with questions regarding their use with potable water. The variety of servo, cartridge or direct-acting solenoid valves offered, as well as accessories such as strainers, pressure reducing valves, backflow preventers or distribution systems, are available as certified versions according to KTW/W270, NSF61, WRAS and ACS.
By applying these distribution systems in combination with the valves, it is also possible to implement completely lead-free systems. An example of this is the combination of compact valve series 18.000 with the push fit system FitSys 18, already in used in vending machines.]]>

<![CDATA[Safe & Rapid Biological Sample Concentration]]>
Removing solvent by blowing inert gas into open sample vessels, blowdown evaporators often have to operate at 60°C or more to concentrate samples in a relatively short space of time. For many laboratories dissolution of samples in low boiling solvents is not always an option. To efficiently remove water and other higher boiling solvents, vacuum concentration, as used by the miVac sample concentrator, is widely accepted as the only effective method.

For laboratories looking to concentrate samples that may thermally degrade, the miVac sample concentrator is able to reduce the temperature of the solvents being concentrated therefore your samples are always kept cool and safe.

Unlike blowdown eevaporators that often have no means of preventing sample splashing during concentration - miVac vacuum concentrators completely eliminate this potential source of sample cross-contamination.

Increasing environmental concerns are making venting of removed solvents to the atmosphere, the method used by blowdown evaporators, unacceptable. In conjunction with the highly efficient SpeedTrap the miVac sample concentrator is able to safely recover almost all removed solvents.

The miVac sample concentrator range has been designed to meet the requirements for safe and rapid drying at a highly affordable price. Featuring capacity from six to twenty stacked shallow-well microplates or 48 to 200 micro centrifuge tubes of 1.5ml size - miVac concentrators are able to operate effectively even in high throughput environments. Each system features an LCD display with digital controls enabling programming of time and temperature. Requiring only electricity to operate the running costs of a miVac concentrator are very low.

To see how easy it is to use a miVac sample concentrator please visit http://www.genevac.com/movie/miVac/ or contact Genevac on telephone +44-1473-240000 / +1-845-267-2211 / email salesinfo@genevac.co.uk for further information.

Genevac, part of the SP Scientific group, was founded in 1990. Today the company employs around 85 people, with manufacturing, R&D and marketing headquartered in Ipswich, UK. Genevac today offers a comprehensive portfolio of evaporators to suit almost any solvent removal application, purchasing budget or productivity requirement.]]>

<![CDATA[Putting feeling to drugs safety and handling]]> “Our machines are essentially simple,” says Roger Brown of CapCoder. “But the devil is in the detail. A batch size is typically 10,000 bottles, which we cap at one per second. Every cap has to be done up to the same torque, and we have to provide proof of this performance. All of this means you need a highly engineered machine, this lead us to the idea that we’d like a wireless torque sensor.”
TorqSense from Sensor Technology met all criteria: simplicity, robustness, high speed and wireless. Mark Ingham of Sensor Technology says: “We used TorqSense ‘as is’ for this application, and the software was ready to go after some extra front end graphics.”
TorqSense use surface acoustic wave (SAW) transducers, which comprise two thin metal electrodes, in the form of interlocking “fingers”, on a piezoelectric substrate. When an RF signal is applied, surface acoustic waves are set up, and the transducer behaves as a resonant circuit. When attached to the shaft, it becomes a frequency-dependent strain gauge. Since the transducers operate at RF, it is easy to couple signals to them wirelessly. Hence, TorqSense can be used on rotating shafts, providing continuous data without the need for unreliable brushes and slip rings that are often found in torque measurement systems.
The CapCoder project had to run the torque up to 10kgcm within tolerances of 10% recording the actual value achieved. This secures the cap at a level of tightness that will ensure security and sterility, yet can be opened relatively easily by an adult. The logged values are saved to provide a permanent record for traceability.
Roger explains: “Diagnostic fluids are distributed widely and they may be stored for months before use. Tracing each bottle’s origin would be practically impossible without full records being automatically produced and saved. We found a solution to this complex problem using out of the box technology. And what amazes me is the diversity of other fields in which TorqSense is used – its really any machine with a rotating shaft.”]]>

<![CDATA[ HYDROM™, the ADD-ON Electrolyte Cleaning Unit]]>
Electrochemical machining accomplishes metal removal by the dissolution of surface atoms without direct contact between the tool and workpiece material. The amount of material removed is proportional to the time and intensity of an electrical current flowing between tool and workpiece. The process is highly controllable and can machine or polish areas previously unreachable by other methods, including hand polishing and deburring.

As an electrolytic solution (water and specialized salts) flows over the workpiece surface, a DC current is applied between the tool and the workpiece. The amount of material removed is determined by the amount of electrical current flowing between the negatively charged tool and the positively charged workpiece. The tool is normally designed to have a mirror image of the final surface of the workpiece. Since the tooling, known as a cathode, never touches the workpiece, there is virtually no tool wear in the process. Typical deburring and polishing times are extremely fast – between 10 and 30 seconds for most applications. Depending on production requirements and the workpiece size, multiple part fixturing can be used to obtain high production rates.

Now making the process even more effective is the HYDROM add-on cleaning unit. Combine HYDROM with a CFP – chamber filter press -- and reduce disposal costs on filter cake by up to 10%. CFP cleaning time can be reduced by up to 6x, and cathode tool life is extended. Accordingly, machine availability increases.

HYDROM can be delivered with new ECM equipment but also as an add-on to existing machines of all brands. For complex machining and finishing, HYDROM will help companies increase competitiveness and improve quality and productivity in cost-pressured manufacturing markets.

<![CDATA[Modbus Master-to-Master Communication]]>
Control systems on each structure were configured to communicate with each other through a serial Modbus RTU RS-232 or RS-485 channel. However, the Modbus device configuration on each side was designed to communicate as a master, while traditional Modbus communication takes place between a master and a slave.

Each structure’s respective developers had invested substantial resources into their control systems, so the systems integrator needed to find a way to overcome this obstacle by converting one configuration to act as a slave in the most cost-effective way possible – or by making two Modbus master devices communicate with one another. Many industry experts have expressed that master-to-master Modbus communication is impossible, but Comtrol had already developed an innovative solution to allow a Modbus master communicate with another master.

The systems integrator assigned to this task researched master-to-master connectivity and ultimately discovered the DeviceMaster UP’s capabilities on a respected online forum. Hesitantly beginning the application, the integrator was highly satisfied with the end result.

As seen in the diagram, Comtrol was able to fix this integrator’s problem using the DeviceMaster UP 2-Port 2E Modbus gateway. By running Modbus Router firmware, an internal slave that resides in RAM is provided that responds to commands from any properly connected external Master. The Modbus Router firmware was developed to provide innovative network-wide Modbus connectivity from a wide variety of Modbus masters to a wide variety of local and remote Modbus slaves. Advanced features include the above-described master-to-master communication and also private serial bus connectivity, write protection, and device ID aliasing. With simplified configuration pages and advanced routing, Modbus Router provides unmatched Modbus connectivity.]]>

<![CDATA[Dual-Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 – huge interface variety with Sony’s new IMX174]]>
The 1/1.2“ sensor has a resolution of 1936 x 1214 pixels and reaches a frame rate of 128 fps with the Dual-GigE model mvBlueCOUGAR-XD using the burst mode, 52 fps with the GigE family mvBlueCOUGAR-X, and 162 fps with the USB 3.0 model mvBlueFOX3. The high image quality even in situations with difficult light conditions ensures that challenging applications like traffic surveillance are mastered.

About the camera families:

High transfer rates are no problem for the mvBlueCOUGAR-XD Dual-GigE family: firstly Link Aggregation of both Gigabit Ethernet interfaces increases the net bandwidth to 240 MB/s and secondly the internal image memory guarantees a reliable image transfer. Furthermore the mvBlueCOUGAR-XD camera can control motorized lenses (zoom, focus, aperture) and features 4 opto-isolated inputs with current limiters as well as 4 robust high-side solid state relays. Smart features like slow motion acquisitions and frame averaging are also available.

The compact size and the different order options makes the mvBlueCOUGAR-X GigE family suitable for nearly every application area. The camera offers a multitude of device based smart features like flatfield correction, color correction, white balancing etc. For this reason no host CPU power is needed. The 64 MB image memory guarantees a reliable image transfer and can be used as an image recording buffer. The camera is compliant to the GenICam and GigE Vision standards and drivers are available for both Windows and Linux.

In spite of its size of 39 x 39 x 24 mm (B x H x D), the mvBlueFOX3 USB 3.0 family features make it a real giant: along with the integrated 256 Mbytes image memory, the mvBlueFOX3 has a huge FPGA with many smart features for image processing as well as 2/4 digital inputs and outputs. The camera family is compliant with the standards GenICam and USB3 Vision. Drivers are available for Linux and Windows. Furthermore, the camera is supported by image processing libraries which are compliant with USB3 Vision.]]>

<![CDATA[Yale provides Vision for fleet operators]]>
In the industry-wide survey, conducted by materials handling equipment manufacturer Yale® Europe, more than 40 per cent of respondents said they did not monitor their fleet at all and less than half of respondents recorded which operators used each individual truck – 41 per cent – and fewer than 18 per cent monitored fuel usage or energy costs.

Significant savings can be made in the cost of operation by managing truck utilisation across a lift truck fleet as well maintaining a higher end of term value. However only 30 per cent of respondents monitored how long each truck was operational and only ten per cent were using a comprehensive automated digital fleet monitoring or telemetry system.

Surprisingly 56 per cent of respondents were either unsure or did not believe that the ability to monitor their lift truck fleet and receive reports on for example utilisation, productivity, event history such as damage and impacts, and site regulation violations could be a benefit to their business.

In direct contrast almost 65 per cent believed that effective monitoring could improve the lifespan of their forklift truck fleet or associated equipment, and 54 per cent believed it could improve productivity.

Most important was recognition by 70 per cent of respondents that safety could potentially be improved through effective fleet monitoring. Based on the research this alone should be considered a major driver in specifying a telemetry system when acquiring new materials handling equipment or fitting to existing fleets of equipment.

Yale brand manager, Steve Ridgway, believes that in today’s environment where operational costs and safety are increasingly becoming major considerations anyone responsible for a materials handing fleet should seriously investigate how beneficial fleet monitoring could be to their business. They should weigh the benefits from reduced operational costs and increased residual values as well as possibly contributing to improving safety in the workplace against initial acquisition costs which too often is the primary consideration in the purchasing decision.]]>

<![CDATA[New generation of high-reliability UHF readers for production and logistics]]> Thanks to four interfaces for external antennas, the RF650R and RF680R can be used for applications such as RFID gates or multiple individual reading stations. For the first time, the RF685R reader has an adaptive antenna. This integrated, polarization variable antenna simplifies commissioning and engineering of RFID applications in the production environment. What is more, the automatic
antenna adaptation improves reading and writing reliability. In addition, the RF685R also performs difficult identification tasks in highly reflective surroundings.
The high-quality wireless module and extensive evaluation algorithms boost the reliability of all new readers in the read and write processes. Functions such as the modification of performance or the dynamic "RSSI limit" adapt automatically to changing environmental conditions. This enables the readers to deliver precise results even when reading moving objects or when the transponders are subject to sensitivity tolerances. All devices readers can be integrated into IT networks by means of Ethernet, TCP/IP and the XML protocol.
For integration in automation systems, the RF680R and RF685R devices can be connected via the Profinet port to a controller, such as the Simatic S7. In this case the configuration and programming is carried out in the TIA Portal. Standard function blocks with a simple programming interface make integration into the user program easier, thereby reducing costs and potential sources of errors. This means the reader can be configured by means of Web-based Management which can be called, for example, directly from the TIA Portal. In addition to configuration and commissioning, users can also access extensive diagnostics options (for example: signal strength, recording frequency and transmit power) using an Internet browser. Whether by remote connection or locally via the second RF680R/RF685R Ethernet port, diagnosis can take place during system operation without having to interrupt the higher-level system.]]>

<![CDATA[Mitsubishi Electric robot emulates intuitive human cake icing movements]]>
Quasar Automation wanted to create a system that can neatly apply icing or other embellishments to cakes regardless of irregularities and imperfections in the cakes’ surface. To achieve this they have integrated a ceiling-mounted food safe robot from Mitsubishi Electric with a vision system and data processing software from Scorpion Vision.

Bob Hinchcliffe, Managing Director of Quasar in Ripon, North Yorkshire, explains that the project fulfils an existing need: “Cake decoration is mainly undertaken manually and is very skilful. It can be time-consuming and the final result is, of course, variable.”

The top of any cake is far from smooth; in fact each one is uniquely uneven. When applying writing, such as Happy Birthday, or an image, the decorator intuitively adjusts to allow for the irregularities. Early attempts at automated icing effectively used 2D images, which distorted on the rough surface and rarely looked perfect.

Hinchcliffe goes on to say that Quasar specialises in automation for the food industry and in recent years has developed a growing interest in the potential of robots for food applications. He was recently invited to Mitsubishi Electric’s UK headquarters where he was given a demonstration of a new robot range designed for the hygienic industries such as food manufacture.

The F-series robots are based on a revolutionary new mechanical design and can be floor, wall or ceiling mounted. They incorporate a powerful new controller and other high performance components, so can maintain high positioning accuracy and high speed movements.

All cabling is fully enclosed for total hygiene, including pneumatic tubing and an Ethernet connection for specialist functions.

Jeremy Shinton, Product Manager – Business Solutions & Software, Automation Systems Division of Mitsubishi Electric Europe’s UK Branch comments: “Food and Beverage producers are increasingly looking at robotic automation. To meet this emerging need the F-Series robots are designed to meet IP67, allowing easy cleaning of the arm, while food safe HG1 food grade grease is used for lubrication. For the ultra-hygienic pharmaceutical and medical sectors a cleanroom version meeting ISO 5 is available.” ...]]>

<![CDATA[Yokogawa enhances hybrid μR10000/μR20000 Series strip chart recorders]]>
Development background
Recorders are used in many different industrial and test & measurement applications in a large variety of industries to acquire, display, and record process data such as temperature, voltage, current, flow rate, and pressure. Although recorders today are shifting from paper to digital recording systems, there is still a strong demand for chart recorders that can record data on paper, especially in countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan.

In the 1950s, Yokogawa was the first company to release recorders in Japan, and it introduced the world’s first microprocessor-based multipoint recorder in the 1980s. Since then, the company has continued to release innovative new products, and is now one of the world’s largest suppliers in this market. The SD card slot enhancement brings the convenience of electronic data recording to paper-based recording systems.

Enhancement
The hybrid μR10000/μR20000 series recorders now come with an SD card slot, enabling them to record data electronically as well as on paper. This new function offers the following advantages:

<![CDATA[New GEORG Machining Center: the GEORG ultraturn MC]]>
According to Dr.-Ing. Wieland Klein, Managing Director GEORG machine tool division, the ultraturn MC will set new standards with regard to profitability and productivity, because the reduction of downtimes for machining of large workpieces is much more verifiable compared machining of smaller components.

The machine has 3 hydrostatic guided linear axes. The milling spindles main drives ranging between 36 and 94 kW of maximum power and a torque of up to 7.000 Nm. GEORG also sets new standards regarding to safety at work and ease for use for machines of such overall size. This is achieved by the complete machine enclosure which also contains the pickup system for the attachments and the automatic tool changer.

For the ultraturn MC basic concept, GEORG reverts to well established components, e.g. headstock, machine bed or tailstock which are combined with the newly developed machining unit, the 2-point measuring system as well as comprehensive automation components. As with all other GEORG machine tools, we are able to correspond to almost any customer request. Dr. Klein: „We always find suitable solutions for our customers“.

This machine is made to handle workpieces up to a weight of maximum 180 t, workpiece diameter of 4.000 mm and maximum center distance of 10.000 mm. It is also equipped with an automatic tool and aggregate changing unit for 8 attachments, complete machine enclosure and the 2-point measuring system, to mention only a few features.

Machining Centers for a maximum workpiece weight of up to 15 t have been established on the market for many years. With the ultraturn MC, GEORG approaches a machining range, which has not been realized so far related to workpiece size and weight, accuracies and cutting forces combined with the automatic workpiece measuring unit.

Customers for the new GEORG machine can be found within the field of turbine and generator manufacturers, crankshaft and driving shaft producers as well as forges, large gear manufacturers and the general machine building industry.]]>

<![CDATA[ELIMINATE CROSS-CONTAMINATION WITH VORTEX FLEX TUBE DIVERTERS]]>
Flex Tube Diverters feature two or three ports that utilize a basic sliding orifice blade design. A tube stub is welded to an orifice style blade and a flexible hose is then attached to the tube stub. As the diverter blade is shifted, a flexible hose moves from one port to the other allowing the convenience of continuous conveying. When one port is open, the other ports are sealed and eliminates any internal ledges or pockets where material can become lodged and remain trapped.

A smooth unobstructed transition from the inlet to the outlet shields the wear compensating seals from abrasion, allowing the diverter to positively seal air and material. The Flex Tube Diverter has net-running “live loaded” wear compensating hard polymer seals.

Vortex Flex Tube Diverters come with an enclosed stainless steel housing that provides support for the flexible tube and ensures material containment in vertical or horizontal applications. This feature also shields hazardous pinch points.

Adapting Vortex Flex Tube Diverters to meet system requirements is made easy with a wide selection of actuators, position indication switches, flanges and tube stubs. It also offers a wide variety of modifications to accommodate a range of temperatures, corrosive, humid and hazardous environments.

The scanning unit may also be offset by up to ±1° relative to the scale tape in each of the three axes (roll, pitch, and yaw). This all has no negative effects on the measuring accuracy nor on the high traversing speeds of up to 600 m/min. The standard maximum measuring length is 3020 mm, but customer-specific solutions of up to 6020 mm are also possible.
The generous mounting tolerances make it possible to use the mechanical stop to mount the LIC 2100. You simply need to ensure that the tolerances are maintained over the entire range of traverse during operation. This can easily be tested using the PWM 20 diagnostic tool and the ATS software installed on a laptop.
As an absolute encoder, the LIC 2100 always supplies precise position values, including immediately after the machine or system has been switched on, without needing a reference run. The measuring standard is a steel scale tape, bearing an absolute graduation with pseudo random code. Only the absolute graduation is used to determine the position value: In this sense the LIC 2100 is a purely single-track system.
In addition to the large mounting tolerances, the fact that the measuring standard is resistant to wear and contamination ensures the high process reliability of the LIC 2100. The scanning head fulfills protection class IP 67, meaning it satisfies the highest demands regarding immunity to dust and moisture, and so permanently operates reliably.
This means that the LIC 2100 is a very interesting solution for machine manufacturers. The simple design of the installation area and the uncomplicated mounting—either using an aluminum scale-tape carrier or directly by adhesive—save time and work during manufacture of the machine. The large selection of serial interfaces, including Fanuc, Mitsubishi, and Panasonic, and of course EnDat 2.2, complements the mounting advantages with a simple electronic connection.
The measuring accuracy of ±15 µm is more than enough for numerous applications. Machines for population of circuit boards in the electronics industry, medical technology applications such as pipette machines, facilities for automation technology or metrology, or even machine tools—all of them are examples of applications for the new LIC 2100 exposed linear encoder with absolute position measurement.]]>

<![CDATA[Rotork reliability rewarded by the Shan-Jing gas pipeline]]>
Modern, reliable and safe automation has always been high on the agenda of the Shan-Jing project. For the first pipeline Rotork supplied hundreds of its then new IQ1 intelligent non-intrusive electric valve actuators, sharing the actuation contract with a competitive actuator manufacturer.

During the following seven years, the unrivalled product quality, reliability and after-sales service demonstrated by Rotork so impressed the customer and end-user that in 2004 Rotork IQ2 actuators were specified for the entire second pipeline, eliminating the inclusion of any competitor.

Since then, the experience with the IQ1 and IQ2 actuators on both pipelines has enabled Rotork IQ technology to be solely specified again for the third pipeline. At the same time, the decision was made to retrofit new IQ actuators on the first pipeline to replace the competitor’s actuators. This work will be completed by the end of 2014, at which time the entire Shan-Jing gas pipeline network will be operated with Rotork IQ intelligent electric actuators, including some of the latest IQ3 models.]]>

<![CDATA[New high-performance turning and milling centre with two spindles]]> 800 mm part length
The new high-performance Hyperturn 65-1000 Duoturn turning and milling centre by Emco offers the machining expert a wide range of interesting alternatives and effective options for complete precision machining. Two equally powerful spindles and two turrets are standard features. Alternatively, users can opt for a second Y-axis, which opens up more processing options. The most important options are the liquid-cooled, direct drive BMT turret, the Super Big Bore spindle, an NC steady and an NC tailstock. This gives the user the flexibility to choose the most effective and efficient solution for their specific needs. Even the basic version impresses with sophisticated technology and convenience.
The Hyperturn 65-1000 Duoturn versions are harmonious both as a whole and in detail. In a generously dimensioned work area, 500 mm turning diameter, 1000 mm spindle clearance and 65 mm bar stock diameter form the basis. Integrated liquid-cooled spindle motors support a wide speed range from 0 to 5000 rpm, while the main and counter spindles offer strong output of 29 kW and powerful torque of 250 Nm. Each of the two tool systems can accommodate 12 stationary or driven milling or drilling heads with DIN quick-change systems. The basic configuration is rounded off by an automatic workpiece pick-up device. It is universally deployable and protected against swarf and coolant. The Hyperturn 65-1000 Duoturn offers more highlights in the form of its high-precision Y-axis, which distributes the cutting forces across guide planes, the optimum swarf flow, and the drive and control performance of the SINUMERIK 840D sl.

The BMT turret option is the best choice for cost-effective machining of complex workpieces where milling predominates. The liquid-cooled direct drive outputs 10 kW, achieves speeds up to 12 000 rpm, and delivers 30 Nm of torque. It thus easily outperforms the VDI version, which already offers good capabilities.
If your focus is on machining long and heavy shafts, e.g., forged parts that do not require backworking, you have the option of using two tailstocks: the hydraulically driven version for manually loaded machines and the NC version for automatically loaded machines. It supports secondary processing times.]]>
