HomeToys.com introduces AVSystemsMag, a newly designed and focused eMagazine.

The eMagazine offers a blend of News, Articles and Interviews from the Residential & Commercial Audio, Video, Automation & Digital Signage Industries.

San Diego, California, November 1st, 2012 - HomeToys.com, a leading Commercial and Residential AV, Automation & Digital Signage Industry Portal, went live today with a freshly revamped eMagazine featuring a blend of AV & Automation Industry News, Articles and Interviews combined with insight into the trends and breakthroughs with potential to affect related business & lifestyle.


Over the past 16 years, HomeToys.com has evolved from a primary focus on Home Technologies to become a leading trade publication covering all facets of the AV, Automation & Digital Signage Industries. The revamping of the eMagazine is a result of that progression. HomeToys founder and chief editor Bob Hetherington had this to say about the revamp - "We've always been looking ahead to the next industry breakthroughs with our publications. In 1996 HomeToys led the way into online publishing with its eMagazine about the Home Technology industry. Over the last few years Commercial AV and Automation as well as Digital Signage has seen tremendous growth and we felt like this topic now warranted a bigger presence on the HomeToys site."

Now, the readers of HomeToys.com and subscribers to the eNewsletter (who generally tend to be AV industry professionals) will see an even greater emphasis on these industry segments combined with the usual home technology trends. "This added direction will allow us to bring more news, articles, interviews and case studies to our 16 year library of archived content making HomeToys.com a premier resource for AV Industry pros."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
