Microscan Imagers Ensure 2D Code Readability During Manufacturing of Miniature Identifiers

Bridging the gap between ease of use and performance, the QX Hawk features a high resolution modular optical zoom system, aggressive X-Mode decoding, and simple plug and play connectivity.

ASIC Based Current Transducers

The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.

After 5,000 Years, Automation Finds Its Way Into The "Lost Wax Process"

With home-grown innovation and ABB robots, MPI, Inc. has discovered the secret to incredible increases in productivity and quality for today's most competitive foundries.

Case Study: Machine Vision System Detects Defective Parts for Precision Stampings Supplier

Dimensional measurement is an essential step in the manufacture of Hexin's stamped parts in order to ensure that each workpiece meets required tolerances.

Case Study: Alignment Device With On-center And Off-center Locking

The KA device's ability to lock to center and also off center is critical to this application. That ability, coupled with the device's reliability and repeatability, makes for a great solution in this application.

Machine Vision System Detects Defective Parts for Precision Stampings Supplier

With production rates of 3,200 pieces per hour for a single production line and an acceptance rate of virtually 100% required by mobile phone and hard drive manufacturers (one defective piece per 120,000), 100% inspection of the components is necessary to ensure that all orders will be accepted by the end customer.

Food Processing Without The Human Touch

Robotic sensory technology is now able to act in the same manner that a person does, adapting to the food manufacturing environment and utilizing vast amounts of information to give us some of the safest food in the world.

Case Study: Marathon Special Products; Plastic Deflashing Automation System

The system keeps up with their presses, provides a consistent finish, and alleviates their operators even from having to select the right part program.

Rockwell Automation Enhances HMI Operator Experience and Data Integration With Latest FactoryTalk View Software

FactoryTalk View 7.0 HMI software improves process-system capabilities, information integration and usability

Measurable Energy Savings in Die Casting Automation

Experience shows that it is not the robots that are the biggest energy consumers, but the entire peripheral equipment.

Survey of Control System Integrators

Nearly all automation vendors rely on system integrator partners to take some percentage of their hardware and software products to market in the form of completely functional systems.

Curvilinear Motion Guides and Actuated Rotary Systems

Designing curvilinear guide or actuator systems can be more difficult than designing linear ones. However, installing such systems can improve payload transportation and handling simplicity and efficiency.

Cable Wire Protection Systems

Cable Wire Protection is often just an afterthought in robotic work cells. After the end-of-arm tooling is selected, the programming is done and safety mechanisms are installed, the last thought is usually the cabling.

Enabling Full Traceability of Parts and Production Processes

Continuous innovation and integration of new technologies are key factors for ASYS to meet their customer requirements for higher throughput, higher efficiencies and reduced manufacturing cost. ASYS integrated multiple code checks and verification using Microscan barcode scanners and imagers in their laser marking, handling, labeling and assembly machines.
