Redefining the boundaries of automation - Identifying production problems is not rocket science

Production challenges do not wait on IT developments, and getting to the root of a problem, or identifying the conditions that hinder smooth operation, does not always have to be rocket science. Here, George Walker, managing director of Novotek UK and Ireland, points out that sometimes, it just takes blending information from different sources into the right views for the right people.

Hui Ting Has developed a model machine for wire heading and forming integrated machine

CNC Head Forming & Wire Bending Machine 1. Use the large power servo motor imported from Japan, work in cooperation with the bending machine, complete head forming and wire bending at one time, and manifest the perfect combination between intelligence and power. 2. Can be used for puction of auto exhaust pipe hooks and other wire forming products after cold heading. Note: used in connection with wire bending machine

Wire forming/bending machine, the advantages of each of the three structures are analyzed. At present, the automatic equipment used in the production line is divided into three structures: turning machine, rotary plate machine and multi-axis camless machine.

Domestic Supplies of Polyester Woven Webbings Takes on New Urgency in the Post-COVID Era

The polyester woven webbing market experienced serious short-term disruption from the closing of the last United States manufacturing plants that could supply yarn complying with the Berry Amendment. After some new domestic yarn manufacturers entered the market, some manufacturers, including Bally Ribbon Mills, stepped up to produce 100 percent Berry-compliant polyester webbing for critical safety applications. The material, used for seat belts, tie-downs, retractors, and medical supplies, is of higher quality, meets relevant specifications, and can be engineered to meet specific customer requirements. What's more, positive engineering and manufacturing changes made to adapt to the COVID-19 emergency hold great promise in streamlining and improving future polyester webbing projects.

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

Superior positioning and geometric performance, absolute high-resolution encoders, and a large, ⌀260mm clear aperture makes this air bearing stage a precision instrument for optical alignment, metrology, inspection, calibration, and scanning. Features and advantages include ⌀260mm clear aperture, 77kg load capacity, 0.0015µrad resolution (max.), 500 RPM (max.), flatness/eccentricity of <175/300nm, wobble of < 1 µrad, and direct drive motor. Air-bearings have no rolling or sliding elements and deliver frictionless, non-contact motion, resulting in negligible reversal error, better flatness, and minimal wobble and eccentricity. All these are ideal prerequisites for applications such as inspection and metrology, calibration, and scanning of high-end parts (i.e., infrared and precision optics, turbine blades, shafts and bearings) in industries like aerospace, aircraft, automotive, semiconductors, and photonics.
