Making IIoT and Smart Technology happen! Applying new technology to a physical process or manufacturing system is an essential part of progress, however the practical side of implementing the latest Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Smart Technology solutions is bringing its own unique challenges. That in turn is leading to new automation solutions.
Getting the safety integrity level right for automated systems! Sitting on the tube during a commute few of us would think about the importance of safety redundancy in automation systems unless it is specified as part of a project we are working on. Automated Safety Instrumented Systems (SISs however are becoming increasingly prevalent, as they can be used to prevent or mitigate hazardous events in a range of different situations.
Pick-and-place robot cell is cost efficient for small batch sizes Sensor manufacturer Lenord + Bauer has used a MELFA RV Series robot from Mitsubishi Electric to optimise its manufacturing production cycle for frequent product changeovers. The robot cell has taken over monotonous manual pick and place tasks at its Gladbeck plant in North West Germany. Crucially the robot operates safely in close proximity to the rest of the workforce.
Delivering on Smart Manufacturing! At this year's Drives & Controls show, Mitsubishi Electric is focussing on practical solutions that allow manufacturing companies and machine builders to realise the real advantages of smart automation systems.
Collaborative or cooperative - Which type of robot suits your application best? Robots are becoming increasingly easy to use, more economical and suitable for a higher number of industrial applications. As human operators and robots increasingly share a common space in the manufacturing environment, the choice between a collaborative or cooperative machine is naturally being given more consideration.
