Acquisition enables Piab to enter the large area vacuum gripper market at full speed. A strategic step towards building the global leader in industrial automation components
The ongoing pressure on engineering companies to reduce costs, increase efficiency and yield a higher return on investment (ROI) is pushing many business leaders to consider alternatives to direct-drive motor systems in the form of various mechanical transmission solutions. Although gearing systems can offer simplicity, cost effectiveness and flexibility, it's not always clear which type of setup is best to use. Here, Graham Mackrell, managing director of Harmonic Drive UK, explores and critiques the four main gear types.

IMTS - Mitsubishi Electric Automation to Exhibit CNC Controls and Enterprise Connectivity Solutions at IMTS in Chicago
"The M8 Series features a CNC-dedicated CPU, which substantially increases the processing speed of the controller for high-speed, high precision machining," said Scott Strache, CNC product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. "This results in reduced cycle times, netting more quality parts in a work shift."
Backlash and Torsional Rigidity are both important values to consider when selecting a high precision gearbox as they both affect lost motion (arcmin). GAM's SPH Flange Gearbox has a single piece steel housing and ring gear machined directly inside for maximum stiffness. The helical gears are precision cut and ground for extremely quiet and smooth torque transmission with a standard backlash rating of < 3 arcmin or < 1 arcmin reduced.
Remtec Automation will attend the one-year anniversary of The Soldier for Life program at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in support of the FANUC CNC Certification program that facilitates successful reintegration of soldiers into civilian careers in advanced manufacturing technology.
Sawyer robot wins Golden Finger Award, named Best Industrial Robot 2016
In recent years, there have been many demands for equipment with high productivity to have a system that retains positioning information, even after the main power supply is turned off.
