Fused 1000 V Test Leads from Multi-Contact Assist Operator Safety

POSTED: 10/25/2012

UL approved test leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse-protected measurements. They accept 6.3 x 32 mm UK style fuses, which can be fitted by unscrewing 2 part connector. Available with PVC/silicone insulation, leads are fitted with

Magnetic Adapters Accelerate Safe Connection of Test Leads

POSTED: 10/25/2012

Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads. Adapter tip consists of bar magnet between 2 steel poles for optimal adhesion, and slightly concave shape of magnetic tip ensures optimal contact. Two versions are available, with 7 or 11 mm dia magnets, and

The Modular Power Connector (MPC) from Multi-Contact Combines up to 15 Single-pole Power Contacts

POSTED: 10/25/2012

The great advantage is obvious: the modular design permits the construction of application-specific plug connectors with standard modules. Fixed mounting dimensions with variable assembly configuration simplify structural integration. That reduces costs for logistics, warehousing and service. Applications can be found in regional rail, subways and streetcars, but also

Shielded Round Connectors 16BV-GS und 21BV-GS for high-power applications

POSTED: 10/25/2012

As a customer-specific solution, Multi-Contact has developed fully shielded connectors for power supply with frequency converters, e.g. for operating three-phase motors. The 16BV-GS and 21BV-GS connectors are suited for applications in deep drilling rigs for geothermal exploration, in energy supply chains for crane systems as well as in all applications

Chocolate Bars Uniquely Packaged

POSTED: 01/12/2012

Packaging containers can sometimes be quite elaborate. Although you rarely hear consumers ask themselves how the products in their shopping cart got into their packaging, this extremely interesting process continuously spurs packaging machine manufacturers to innovate. The faster, the better, the more accurate so as not

Product Handling Put to the Test at Twizzlers Candy Plant

POSTED: 02/07/2011

Twizzlers® candy from Y&S Candies, Inc., a division of The Hershey Company, is an American candy favorite, known for its sticky, pliable consistency and sweet fruity flavors. However, some of the qualities that make it such a satisfying treat also make it a product packaging challenge. Y&S produces and

One Multitasking Robot, Two Heavy-Lifting Jobs

POSTED: 11/19/2010

This is one busy robot, working on one side of a manufacturing cell to case-pack, and then swinging around to palletize the heavy cases. Operators are spared the heavy lifting, and throughput has climbed by 35 percent. As sales climbed dramatically for 21.5-lb. bulk plastic bottles of windshield-washer fluid

OLP/SIMULATION

POSTED: 10/16/2008

Since implementing offline programming, and then refining the process, Johnson Controls, Inc. has dramatically reduced programming costs wile improving production uptime in its robotic waterjet-cutting cells.  JCI reduced line utilization for programming purposes by 96 percent, from 50 hours to 2 hours, with an 82

Engineered Machined Products: A Company Standing the Test of Time in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

POSTED: 09/19/2006

Engineered Machined Products (EMP), based in Escanaba, Mich., is a Tier 1 supplier to major diesel engine manufacturers.  It is hard to imagine that such a successful and high-tech manufacturing operation is located in the natural beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, but it’s there, and if

US Chemical Automates Case Packing With Robotics

POSTED: 01/17/2006

A robotic cell that packs chemical containers into cardboard cases is eliminating repetitive manual operations at a US Chemical plant in southern Wisconsin. The system, designed by Promatech, LLC, New Berlin, Wisconsin, was integrated with the plant’s existing filling, capping and conveyor system and incorporates a

ToyMaker 3000

POSTED: 06/03/2004

What is one of the most sophisticated Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) assembly factories doing at a Museum?  ToyMaker 3000, now open permanently at The Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in Chicago, produces an assembled Gravitron toy top at a rate of

Vacuum Gripper System Meets Increasing Demands for Handling Packages of Varying Shape and Size

POSTED: 04/16/2004

The use of robots for placing products in containers, transferring those containers between different stations in the packaging lines and palletizing them is becoming increasingly prevalent in all industries. Robots, with their ability to use a variety of end-of-arm tools [EOAT], provide the high-speed ‘‘pick and place’‘ palletizing ability needed to
