Optimizing Your Manufacturing

by Kate Nadeau

POSTED: 11/22/2016

Introduction Manufacturing companies contributed $2.17 trillion to the U.S. economy according to the most recent annual data. [1] Manufacturers, of which 98.6 percent [2] qualify as small businesses, have become more agile, more productive and leaner in recent years. These advances have reduced both time to market and labor costs.

NEXCOM Fully Depicts Cloud-Infused Industry 4.0

POSTED: 08/31/2016

Putting Industry 4.0 into practice has become a universal lesson throughout the industry. However, most Industry 4.0 interpretations in recent years have mainly focused on the data side of things. To extend beyond the focus, this year at the 2016 Taipei International Industrial Automation Exhibition, NEXCOM will demonstrate how it

Designing a Reliable and Efficient Vacuum System

POSTED: 05/31/2016

A vacuum system is made up of more than a pump, and its design is dependent on the application. However, all applications need reliable and efficient designs, so to illustrate how to achieve that, we will focus on two types of applications and systems. Applications for vacuum pumps can be either

How Embedded Devices and the Cloud Are Leading a Paradigm Shift in Manufacturing and Production

POSTED: 05/17/2016

By: Daron Underwood, CTO Not long ago, embedded devices were not connected in any way to a network especially to a network that was accessible to the cloud. As such, it was decidedly difficult to have software activation and licensing software work at a local level. Microsoft even struggled with Windows

Why an Open “Plug-and-Play” Software Platform is The Answer for Industrial Motion Control

POSTED: 04/28/2016

What is the number one thing that industrial automation engineers want at work? It’s simple: the freedom and flexibility to choose the best tools without reservation. That autonomy, however, is rarely achieved, not just in industrial automation but practically any industry these days. Oh sure, plenty of tooling vendors say they provide

Industrial Machine Automation: Soft Motion Control Has Better Performance and Value Than Hardware

POSTED: 04/15/2016

Embedded OEMs – especially those whose products have complex human-machine interfaces (HMIs), manage many degrees of motion, and require hard real-time operation – have traditionally relied on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and digital signal processors (DSPs) to meet the precision and performance requirements of machine vision and motion control

Understanding the Benefits of Strain Gauge Technology in OEM Medical Devices and Equipment

POSTED: 02/24/2016

Custom strain gauge sensing technology enhances patient experiences in everything from robotic surgical systems to mammography machines. Introduction In today's highly competitive medical device marketplace, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their associated design and engineering personnel are opting to include custom strain gauge sensing technologies into finished product designs, as a

Cycle Times for Trackmotion Robotic Cells

POSTED: 05/04/2015

CYCLE TIMES FOR TRACKMOTION ROBOTIC CELLS Placing a robot on a track greatly expands its reach envelope, potentially allowing it to tend many more machines or to transfer

High-Acceleration Servo Motors Create Cabling Challenges

by Lucas Kehl, Product Marketing

POSTED: 03/13/2015

In automated production machines, faster acceleration and deceleration of motion axes can lead to productivity gains. It’s no wonder that machine builders have started to adopt new low-inertia servo motors that offer maximum accelerations up to 5g, compared to less than 3g for conventional servo motors. The new motors can reach

Connectors Lower Wiring Costs

by Jack Gayara, Product Manager

POSTED: 03/10/2015

The assumption that hardwiring will minimize wire installation costs turns out to be wrong If you design or build industrial machines, you probably know all about hardwiring. It remains the most common way to bring power and signal to the
