HEIDENHAIN WHITE PAPER: INFLUENCE OF POSITION MEASUREMENT ON ACCURACY IN 5-AXIS MACHINING

Productivity and accuracy are important attributes in the competition for machine tools. Five-axis machining provides considerable potential for increasing productivity. In many cases it permits higher metal removal rates than 3-axis machining. Production times can be significantly shortened thanks to a reduction of time required for resetting, for example, or through multi-operation machining in one setup. In any case, with increasingly complex workpiece geometry, 5-axis machining is becoming an indispensable part of the machining process.

PIAB WHITE PAPER: GENERIC COMMUNICATION LINK SIGNALS THE ERA OF SMART FACTORIES

In this eBook, explore the technology behind modern cable carriers, material options, tech tips and tricks, and more.

WHITE PAPER - "ROBOTICS FROM THE INVESTOR’S POINT OF VIEW: HOW TO PROFIT FROM THE RISE OF ROBOTS"

This paper evaluates whether Robotics equities traded on Stock Markets worldwide are a good investment opportunity or not. Robotics seems to become more and more attractive for both institutional investors (who act rationally and prefer medium to long term investments) and individual investors (who are driven by irrational behaviour and prefer short term investments). To forecast if robotics is an investment opportunity that could inflate a new financial bubble in the oncoming years, this paper compares robotics equities with Internet equities and analyses what happened during the Dot-com Mania in the 1990s. Many similarities come out as well as several key enabling factors that confirm robotics is a major investment opportunity for the next decade.

PIAB WHITE PAPER: THE ROAD TO STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR PRODUCTION STARTS IN THE PRESS SHOP

Advanced air-driven vacuum technology allows automotive manufacturers to move towards smarter factories, and although energy-efficiency, reliability, productivity and safety may seem straight-forward, there are obstacles along the way. However, improvements made in press shops can act as a roadmap for the rest of the production in body shops, paint shops and assembly lines. In this white paper, we help you navigate the market of vacuum technology.

WIND RIVER WEB SEMINAR: GOING GREEN WITH THE INTERNET OF THINGS

This web seminar, delivered in July 2016, discusses how the Internet of Things (IoT) can bring significant environmental benefits for people, businesses, and the planet.

US DIGITAL WHITE PAPER - ENCODER BASICS FOR MOTION CONTROL ENGINEERS

Selecting the right encoder for a unique application can be a daunting task for the design engineer. This whitepaper covers commonly asked questions when considering encoders for motion control applications. From basics such as mechanical configuration and absolute versus incremental to the differences in accuracy and resolution, "Encoder Basics for Motion Control Engineers" will shed some light on the encoder selection process.

US DIGITAL WHITE PAPER - HOW THE T7 NETWORKED ABSOLUTE INCLINOMETER DRIVES DOWN THE COST OF SOLAR ENERGY IN CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER SYSTEMS

Concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) methodologies generate electricity by focusing a large amount of sunlight onto a much smaller area. To maximize efficiency, the sunlight needs to be accurately focused. Being off by even a single degree could result in a significant drop in efficiency, and the biggest impact to the cost of delivering solar energy is efficiency. As with most systems, the accuracy is limited by the accuracy of the sensors used in that system. There are a number of different types of sensors that can be used in these systems. This paper discusses why an absolute inclinometer is the most effective sensor solution and why the US Digital T7 is superior to other inclinometers available today.

SENSATA WHITE PAPER – HOW TO DESIGN COOLING SYSTEMS USING NEXT GENERATION, ECO FRIENDLY REFRIGERANTS

Sensata Technologies new white paper helps manufacturers of HVAC and cooling systems design next generation solutions that can take advantage of “green” refrigerants that do not adversely impact the environment.

IGUS WHITE PAPER - SMART PLASTICS FOR PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE

WHITE PAPER BY PHOTONEO ON IMAGING AND MACHINE VISION EUROPE

Machine Vision is one of the driving forces of industrial automation. For a long time, it’s been primarily pushed forward by improvements made in 2D image sensing and, for some applications, 2D sensing is still an optimal tool to solve a problem. But the majority of challenges machine vision is facing today has a 3D character. From well-established metrology up to new applications in smart robotics, 3D sensors serve as a main source of data. Find out more in the freely-accessible white paper Parameters​ ​of​ ​3D​ ​sensing​ ​techniques​ ​in​ ​a​ ​nutshell, written by Photoneo CTO Tomáš Kovačovský.

SENSATA WHITE PAPER – HOW INTEGRATED THERMAL PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY CAN PREVENT SOLID STATE RELAY FAILURE IN INDUSTRIAL SYSTEMS

“How Integrated Thermal Protection Technology Can Prevent Solid State Relay Failure in Industrial Systems” describes the future generation of SSR power protection for industrial refrigeration and manufacturing systems. Solid state relays provide robust solutions for electronic switching in load control applications and offer many performance, design and reliability advantages over electromechanical relays. Since the 1970s, these solid-state relays have been a proven electronic power switching solution for a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications, providing a longer lasting, more versatile, flexible and robust solution than electromechanical relays. However, this technology has now taken a giant leap forward with the development of new solid- state relay designs with integrated thermostats that prevent overheating, protecting component and system operation from potential damage or shut down. This product evolution will undoubtedly change the game in thermal protection for a wide range of industrial applications.
