Integro Technologies Corp., a leading vision integrator in Salisbury, North Carolina, announces its recent partnership with the NC Manufacturing Institute.


The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute initiative was conceived in the summer of 2014 during meetings with leaders from Rowan and Cabarrus counties from both chambers of commerce, economic development authorities, the Centralina Workforce Development Board, and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.

The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute is a response to employers need for solving talent recruitment issues in order to grow and remain competitive. This initiative builds a clear and achievable pathway for people to acquire those skills in order to access good jobs in local communities.

"The training provided by the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute is critical to our region and states economic health and future. Manufacturing is strong in North Carolina. However, the employee requirements and skill sets have dramatically changed from traditional manufacturing as a result of automation and computer technology. This type of program is critical to prepare people for todays jobs and tomorrow's careers," said Shawn Campion, President of Integro Technologies.

Manufacturing firms and companies such as Integro Technologies will benefit from collaborating with the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute through access to a pipeline of screened, trained, and certified production technicians who can help them achieve their business goals.

"Having a partner like Integro provides the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute with valuable resources and insights as we build the manufacturing workforce of tomorrow. Integros leading-edge approaches to machine vision systems and technology integration, coupled with its commitment to the local economy is a perfect fit for our initiative," said Craig Lamb, Vice President of Corporate & Continuing Education at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
Together this partnership ensures that education and manufacturing — and job seekers and jobs — are moving forward together.

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.
