EU Automation publishes new guide: How to Get Robotics Right - Avoiding the Common Costly Mistakes of Automation Adoption

The useful guide provides engineers with valuable information about how to introduce automation into manufacturing practices successfully, so they can realise the full potential of robotics

The Future Of Industrial Automation - Trends And Technologies To Watch

As industries adopt data-driven operations, there is increased demand for advanced technologies. These technologies maximize the potential and returns on investment in industrial automation systems.

Gain a Competitive Edge with Cold Chain Automation

Automation is revolutionizing virtually every industry today, including cold chain warehousing. Warehousing companies can get a valuable edge over their competitors by implementing smart automation strategies.

Trends Shaping the Automation Industry

The topic of retrofitting, i.e., the modernization of machines and systems into the digital age, is also an important trend in terms of sustainability, energy saving and resource optimization that we are also serving.

Six Predictions for the Future of IoT and Mobile App Integration

IoT and mobile app development are two such prospects that industry analysts believe can reshape our lives in significant ways. Collectively, these technologies are expected to dominate the future and bring a never-seen change in enterprises across the niches.

Four Ways to Improve Your Logistics Applications

Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.

Precision Motion Control Enables Automation

When digital information transforms into precise physical motion, previously infeasible use cases suddenly become possible. This improvement delivered Industry 4.0 to applications such as advanced robotics, Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),.

Covid-19 - the accelerator to smart logistics, smart transportation and smart supply chain services

Clem Robertson, CEO and Founder of R4DAR Technologies explains how the global pandemic has fast-forwarded demand for automated transport and last mile delivery systems so life can return to the "new normal" and the country can be better prepared for future pandemics.

5G and New Industrial Use Cases

How can industrial equipment companies keep pace with the push to economize and modernize, to be more data-centric, and to provide safety and security in the face of constant innovation?

Top Article from 2019 - How Robotics & IoT Help Sustain Triple Bottom Line

When most think of sustainability in business, the concept of green processes is not always top of mind. However, incorporating technology, and more specifically robotics and cloud connected devices, creates a secondary sustainability effect that is markedly more streamlined

The cornerstones of Zimmer Group's Industry 4.0 success in production

Zimmer Group has consistently and successfully oriented their mechatronic component portfolio towards Industry 4.0. These range from electric mid-class grippers for standard applications to motor spindles for chipping wood, plastic and metal, to high end products.

Removing the Roadblocks of Machine to Machine Communication in Manufacturing

Solving the challenge of data interoperability exists for the IT function in many situations. For the connected factory this means enabling the flow of information between machines, which in the past has been easier said than done.

Artificial Intelligence in the Factory

Because kinetic mesh is a mobile network, radios can go on any fixed or mobile asset on a manufacturing floor and still provide constant communications.

Wind River Brings Safety-Critical Expertise to Functional Safety for Industrial IoT

With the accelerating growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems for smart grids, connected vehicles, robotics, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more.

Disruptive Changes from Robotics Driving the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Cobots and mobile robots are both new technologies that are still being developed and industry is just now learning how to implement them. Further, these examples represent new applications that use robotics in applications where they have never been used before.

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
