Automate 2015 - +Mfg to Showcase Innovative Additive Manufacturing machine at Automate 2015

Automate 2015 show in Chicago, IL on March 23-26, 2015 at McCormick Place

+Mfg, LLC (‘Plus Manufacturing') announced it will attend the Automate 2015 show in Chicago, IL on March 23-26, 2015 at McCormick Place. +Mfg will be debuting the revolutionary +1000K additive manufacturing machine utilizing an inert gas shielded arc to deposit multiple metals in any three dimensional pattern.


The +Mfg +1000K can replace the manufacturing processes of casting, stamping and milling, making large format near net shape parts in a fraction of the time and expense of traditional methods. Using the new Parker Hannifin PAC controllers to control the robotic motion and deposition process, the part temperature is tightly controlled to manipulate the grain structure, resulting in superior material properties.

Metal deposition rate is over 2.5 kg/hour allowing for deposition of large parts in less time or quick build of multiple small parts. The fine control and refined process results in near net shape parts requiring minimal final machining, thus reducing waste, saving time and money — the perfect machine for imaginative design and development, production, product revisions, and part changeover.

The +1000K achieves its outstanding flexibility using Parker PAC multiple axis controllers to produce metal parts faster, cheaper, safer, and less expensively.

The addition of the Auto-Axcess E 300, an advanced multi-MIG welding system from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. provides a customized Pulse program designed specifically for +Mfg, as well as arc data monitoring to ensure the Arc Metal Depositiontm process falls within the exact specifications.

Visit the Parker Hannifin booth # 1139 at Automate 2015 to see the robotics portion of the revolutionary +Mfg +1000K and ask the +Mfg representatives at booth # 598 how you can get more information on the future of additive manufacturing.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
