IMTS - GAM with Jakob Antriebstechnik and GF Machining Solutions will be Speaking at IMTS 2016 Conference

On the topic of: Avoiding Collision Damage of Motor Spindles Through an Innovative Motor-Spindle Safety System

A short description:

Different causes lead to unforeseen contact situations between moving components in the working space of machine tools. These collisions can result in damage of the machine components. High cost and machine downtime are the consequences. This article presents a solution for the reduction of contact forces in case of collision. The damages of the machine structure and the main components like the motor spindle can be successfully avoided. Further a modified mechanism with higher stiffness and better process properties of the protection system will be described and compared to the current status.
Date: Sep 14, 2016
Time: 3:15 PM
Location: W193-A
This technology will be shown at IMTS 2016 and installed on GF Machining Solutions high performance milling centers model Mikron HPM 800 U ST with crash demonstrations several times per day. GF Machining Solutions is located at S-8754. In addition, FFG MAG will have the spindle protection system displayed at IMTS in their booth S-8129. This unit has been successfully tested in their Specht HMC 600.

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
