The e-mobility megatrend requires new solutions for production of car body parts. Bent and hydro formed tubes and tube frames are becoming crucial elements in e-car design, but processing these parts presents particular challenges to suppliers of manufacturing equipment. Due to safety tracking requirements, single frame production is one of
Abstract To support the trend for higher Automation, Jenoptik created a flexible production line layout to optimize footprint and reduce operator dependence for cutting and welding on press hardened steel automotive body parts. The concept description is for a system to automatically trim and assemble a structural body part made
It’s known that automated brake press systems offer increased productivity for metal fabricators. Most manual brake press cells only operate at 65% utilization, making robotic automation attractive with utilization rates near 80-90%. 12 Reasons to

Industrial automation software is used in a wide variety of applications. Unlike using hardware motion control, for instance, which comes with several limitations and elevated operational costs, there is now a new tool for developers to consider. The KINGSTAR Soft Motion Platform offers engineers a convenient, software-based solution for top
Walk through any plant that uses linear motion systems, and you can often see maintenance workers, grease gun in hand, applying lubrication to linear guides. And why shouldn’t they? Under-lubricated guides can wear excessively, which leads to performance problems and premature failure. These labor-intensive lubrication practices, however, do not come cheap.

A typical manufacturing plant today will have thousands, or even many thousands, of electrical connections on both fixed equipment and moving machines. And it’s just a matter of time before some of those connections fail or wear out, bringing production machines to a dead stop. One way to minimize this

Of all the chemical exposures that can affect the life and performance of electrical cables, oil is one of the most damaging. Used as a coolant and lubricant in many industrial and infrastructure settings, oil can inflict molecular damage on the polymers used for cable insulation and jacketing. If ignored,
