ColorRanger E – High-speed 3D and RGB color imaging in one camera

SICK has the world’s first high-speed 3D camera with high-quality color capability. By measuring both the 3D shape and the color of objects and parts, more reliable decisions can be made to allow production plants to improve their up-time, through-put, and product quality. The ColorRanger E replaces the need for several different cameras for the same task, which reduces the solution cost and complexity.

The cameras are used as a key vision component by manufacturers and vision integrators worldwide. They solve various inspection tasks by measuring shape, contrast, and surface defects, to ensure product quality and production reliability. The ColorRanger E expands the inspection possibilities further by also providing high-resolution RGB color at up to 3072 pixels per channel. With simultaneous 3D and color information at more than 11 kHz, multiple inspections can be performed in parallel at full...

New Danish robot eliminates all automation barriers

After record growth in over 40 countries, Universal Robots' lightweight robotic arms are now making their US debut. The UR5 robotic arm manufactured by Universal Robots has been announced. The world's most innovative robot by The International Federation of Robotics and IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.

The UR5 and UR10 robotic arms are aimed at companies that thought robots were too expensive, cumbersome and hard to program and integrate in existing production. The lightweight, flexible UR5 and UR10 can work alongside personnel and generally require no safety shielding. The robotic arms are easily moved around the production area and present a plug-and-play solution; a simple user interface lets employees with no previous programming experience quickly set up and operate them.

Many companies worldwide have invested in UR robots to save manpower, whereas others have used them to boost product quality...

Markless Sensor

Markless Sensor

 

November 29th, 2012

The ML20 markless sensor from Sick is designed to be used like a print mark sensor but does not require any optical marking on the package, instead detecting a taught-in design pattern.

It therefore features more flexibility and more design freedom when planning packaging and needs less set-up time when it comes to changing labels and formats, avoiding unnecessary use of materials.

The ML20, which can be used for controlling cutting edges, for example, employs a method for contrast pattern detection that involves teaching in a pattern sequence to the sensor. The pattern is detected during processing, at a scanning speed of up to 7 m/s, resulting in a switching signal. Even in the case of complex designs, tolerances in the track course of the continuous material and high machine speeds, the ML20 delivers reproducibility of up to 0.6 mm and precise and stable detection of nearly any pattern.

When changing label or film rolls, the sensor avoids unnecessary...

Meet Joe Pitera

Meet Joe Pitera

 

October 10th, 2012

Joe Pitera joined the Axis team as a Drive and Motion Specialist this past Spring.

Joe comes to us with over 20 years experience in automation and most recently from his position as a Level 3, Motion Application Engineer for Siemens. His specific expertise includes but is not limited to PLC programming, HMI programming, electronic and mechanical diagnostics, software programming (VB, ST, LAD, MCC, scripting) and EMC analysis. He has a strong working knowledge of many applications and considered an expert in converting, printing and packaging. Joe has decided to transition from the vendor side to the distribution side of the business channel, in order to become more pro-active in supporting customers.

Joe is a New Jersey native, happily married to his wife, Livia, for 18 years. Together they have three beautiful teenage daughters. When asked about his hobbies, Joe says, I enjoy grilling, all outdoor activities, and mechanics. I have designed and built, machines...

Sirius Current Monitoring Relays For I O-link

Sirius Current Monitoring Relays For I O-link

 

October 8th, 2012

The 3RR22 current monitoring relays have been expanded by an IO-Link interface for the transfer of digital measured values to the control. The monitoring relays' autonomous function remains available, independently of the control.

Application area
Monitoring for current exceedance and shortfall
Monitoring for line breakage
Monitoring for no-load operation and load shedding, in case of V-belt breakage or pump idling
Monitoring for overload, e.g. caused by a polluted filter system in pump applications
Monitoring for the functionality of electric loads such as heating
Monitoring for incorrect phase sequence with mobile systems such as compressors or cranes
Monitoring for incomplete ground faults, e.g. due to damaged insulation or humidity

The Perfect Spool

The Perfect Spool

 

October 8th, 2012

Spooling (or winding) is the most effective way to provide convenient packaging for materials of exceptionally long length. Typically, material is fed from a large spool at a certain rate while a SmartMotor traverses the material back and forth to create the desired pattern.

For the "perfect spool", the winder traversing position should be electronically geared to the rotational velocity of the spool that the material's being wound onto. The SmartMotor uses a customizable electronic gearing dwell control to ensure the winding stays in the desired shape even as the diameter of the spool changes because of additional material wound onto the spool.
