The easy-to-use, lightweight the OMEGA OSXL-EX series compact infrared cameras have 3 views, thermal, visible and MSX® imaging featured on their high resolution color LCD display. Now you can afford the ultimate inspection tool – a thermal imager. The dramatic MSX thermal images clearly reveal problems from sources of energy loss, moisture intrusion and structural
Cognex Corporation announced an expanded portfolio of 3D laser displacement sensors, an industrial vision controller, and powerful new 3D vision tools. The DS1050, DS1101, and DS1300 sensors address an unprecedented variety of 3D applications demanding high resolution and expanded measurement range. The DS1000 series now comes bundled with the new Cognex VC5 vision controller, delivering
A chip called the LTC2983 directly digitizes RTDs, thermocouples, thermistors and external diodes with 0.1°C accuracy and 0.001°C resolution. The device combines low-noise and low-offset-buffered ADCs with excitation...
Webster’s dictionary defines technology as “the practical application of knowledge especially in a particular area” and “a manner of accomplishing a task, especially using technical processes or methods”....
Options for safe monitoring of brakes on vertical axes can include a pure brake test to take control of high-performance holding and safety brakes through to redundant fall protection in accordance with Cat. 3, EN ISO 13849-1. The safe motion system PMCprotego DS combines a servo amplifier and safety card, for a high level of
Primary packaging is the more challenging task in the packaging industry. In these machines, the packaging material meets the product at the highest possible speed; as a result, the level of precision has a direct influence on product quality and the usage of raw materials. Gravimetric and volumetric filling processes in liquid filling machines, for
Protected by the shell of its launch-rocket during blastoff, NASA’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) must get back to earth on its own at mission’s end. To keep capsule and crew safe under the huge reentry and splashdown loads—temperatures exceeding 4,800° F and speeds up to 25,000 mph—a 16.4-ft. diameter ablative thermal protection system is
Ballscrews for long machine travel application can be expensive and can require additional motion components for sufficient support over the needed travel distance. If a machine application requires high operating speeds as well, then machine costs can increase because of the need for larger servomotors and servo drives. The design engineers at Proteck, an Indian
The door controls, motors and gear drives of the Superbay Maintenance Hangar at the San Francisco International Airport needed a retrofit. The previous control system was built in 1969 and consisted of multiple relays, contactors, timers, antiquated power track systems and miles of wiring requiring continuous maintenance. The massive hangar boasts two 130 x 90
To meet the demand for its ever-expanding line of cylinders and related products, TRD Manufacturing, Inc., a division of Bimba, a leading actuation company, sought a partner to develop fixturing to allow quick set-up and the flexibility to run small or large batches of product from a multitude of workpiece block sizes. TRD turned to
While some companies are promising an entire car made of 3D-printed parts, C.ideas, a rapid prototyping company, is using 3D scanning and printing technologies to create and manufacture replacement parts for rare vehicles. The company used scanning, software and printing products from 3D Systems to produce more than 40 replacement components for a Lotus 340R,
Live webinar is December 10 at 1 PM Eastern. In the last half of the 1990s EDA industry analysts began talking about the growing market for tools above the RTL handoff level. This new electronic systems level (ESL) tools market was supposedly going to explode and dramatically change the design landscape. Many companies were funded,
Chris Grossman • Senior Vice President Enterprise Applications, Rand Secure Data Like so many other industries, manufacturing has become dependent on digital data and the amount of data being generated has exploded. Design files, simulation data, sales systems, parts and assembly files, and ERP data are only some of the valuable electronically stored information (ESI)
