ORIENTAL MOTOR USA - ELIMINATING EXTERNAL SENSORS

Sensing technology is everywhere today. Sensors are used to detect human touch on a smart phone, ambient temperature in a room, and even in non-invasive blood glucose measurement for diabetes detection. This whitepaper addresses the most common types of presence sensors used in industrial motion control including their application, design criteria, integration requirements, associated costs, testing and maintenance.

WHITE PAPER - "ROBOTICS FROM THE INVESTOR’S POINT OF VIEW: HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE RISE OF ROBOTS"

This paper evaluates whether Robotics equities traded on Stock Markets worldwide are a good investment opportunity or not. Robotics seems to become more and more attractive for both institutional investors (who act rationally and prefer medium to long term investments) and individual investors (who are driven by irrational behaviour and prefer short term investments). To forecast if robotics is an investment opportunity that could inflate a new financial bubble in the oncoming years, this paper compares robotics equities with Internet equities and analyses what happened during the Dot-com Mania in the 1990s. Many similarities come out as well as several key enabling factors that confirm robotics is a major investment opportunity for the next decade.

PIAB WHITE PAPER: VACUUM SYSTEMS FOR SUCCESSFUL ROBOT IMPLEMENTATION

This white paper discusses vacuum solutions for robot end effectors that increase the possibility of a successful robot installation.

PIAB WHITE PAPER: FIVE STEPS TOWARDS MORE PICKS PER MINUTE

Vacuum-based systems for materials handling are used in many different industries, and regardless of whether a system is used to pick up cartons of food or consumer products, large metal sheets or tiny electronics components, the speed at which that system is working will impact the production rate. A more efficient vacuum system, capable of picking more per minute, will result in increased productivity. So, how do you make sure that your vacuum-based materials handling system is as efficient as possible, and how can such a system be optimized to pick more items per minute?

KVH INDUSTRIES INC. WHITE PAPER - GUIDE TO COMPARING GYRO & IMU TECHNOLOGIES: MEMS AND FOGS

Engineers designing gyro-stabilized systems for manned or unmanned applications must compare the attributes of various gyro technologies to determine which sensors offer the required performance parameters. Depending on the specifics of the application being designed, some performance criteria are more important than others. A reliable means of comparing common critical performance parameters is a necessary tool for designers and engineers. This paper compares gyro and inertial measurement technologies using distinct performance criteria of fiber optic gyros (FOGs) and FOGbased inertial systems, and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)-based gyros and MEMS inertial systems. It focuses on the five key critical performance areas of industrial and tactical grade gyros, as well as current and trending applications for both FOGs and MEMS.

US DIGITAL WHITE PAPER - ENCODER BASICS FOR MOTION CONTROL ENGINEERS

Selecting the right encoder for a unique application can be a daunting task for the design engineer. This whitepaper covers commonly asked questions when considering encoders for motion control applications. From basics such as mechanical configuration and absolute versus incremental to the differences in accuracy and resolution, "Encoder Basics for Motion Control Engineers" will shed some light on the encoder selection process.

US DIGITAL WHITE PAPER - HOW THE T7 NETWORKED ABSOLUTE INCLINOMETER DRIVES DOWN THE COST OF SOLAR ENERGY IN CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS

Concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) methodologies generate electricity by focusing a large amount of sunlight onto a much smaller area. To maximize efficiency, the sunlight needs to be accurately focused. Being off by even a single degree could result in a significant drop in efficiency, and the biggest impact to the cost of delivering solar energy is efficiency. As with most systems, the accuracy is limited by the accuracy of the sensors used in that system. There are a number of different types of sensors that can be used in these systems. This paper discusses why an absolute inclinometer is the most effective sensor solution and why the US Digital T7 is superior to other inclinometers available today.

UNIVERSAL ROBOTS DBOOK - THE AUTOMATION TRAIN IS LEAVING THE STATION

Are your competitors already on board the automation train? Don’t let them leave you in the dust. In this ebook, we’ll help you identify and address the concerns of three key stakeholder groups:
