Accommodating Market Volumes and Staying Competitive with Scalable Sensor Solutions
As companies continue to integrate more automation into their warehouses and DCs, the need for intelligent sensors to monitor and guide that equipment in a very safe, efficient, and productive manner will also increase.
Using ASICs to enable high-performance, cost-effective position sensors
'Position sensor' is a broad term covering a range of technologies. In this article, we consider sensors that measure rotation and linear displacement.
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.
How Robotics is Transforming Manufacturing
When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.
Co-Learning of Task and Sensor Placement for Soft Robotics
Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot's body to ensure efficient operation.

PI USA - Motorized Linear & Rotary Air Bearing Stages
A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
