The miniature TiM300 series laser scanner is ideal for a wide range of industrial automation, collision-protection and security duties where high performance detection must be combined with maximum reliability.
Although the rugged, metal-housed sensor is only tennis-ball sized, the SICK TiM300 is based on the same time-of-flight infra-red scanning technology as SICK's highly regarded LMS series of long range laser scanners. The TiM300 also has easy-to-use Zonal programming functionality via a USB port or on-sensor buttons, for accurate determination of protected areas.

Dan Evans has joined Axis after nine years of distinguished service with the United States Navy. Dan left the Navy as a First Class Petty Officer. During his time in the military he received his Bachelor's in Nuclear Engineering Technologies and a Master's in Systems Engineering. His field of expertise was as a Nuclear Electrician's Mate. Dan completed three deployments to the Persian Gulf. On shore duty he was stationed outside of Seattle, WA. He served as an Electrical Inspector, performing detailed inspections on power generation equipment. He also managed preventive maintenance programs using acoustic analysis and thermographic inspections.
Upon exiting the military Dan was faced with the hard decision of where to begin his next career. Opportune industries included Nuclear Power Production and Maintenance Supervision. However, his course work drove him to look toward a field that included a stronger engineering responsibility. Though, Dan had the option of choosing from...
Trio’s unique UNIPLAY HMI system is a revolutionary way to make operator interfaces better, easier and more secure! The UNIPLAY series boasts a 7" and 10" colour display.
The UNIPLAY range has built-in power isolation technology making it more reliable in noisy environments.
No additional software is required; Uniplay HMI’s work with the Trio 4xx Motion Coordinator range. Motion Perfect v3 is used to create operator HMI screens which are transferred to the UNIPLAY HMI by the Motion Coordinator at runtime.

...Breaking news on Co-Bots
There is a lot of buzz around the new generation of collaborative robots, or co-bots as some are calling. Marketing powerhouse ReThink has blazed onto the scene with Baxter, however as witnessed at the Automate show this week, the product may not be ready for integration into the industrial market. Universal Robots on the other hand has an installed base of co-bots in 40 countries and just launched their 2-arm solution in the US. "Universal Robots makes robotic arms that are "better than Baxter," in the view of Frank Tobe, publisher of The Robot Report".
The Danish-designed robots automate production in all industries – even in SMEs that regard automation as prohibitively...
