Successful Conversion of a Vehicle Assembly With Electric Monorail System
The challenges that arose during the course of the project and how they were overcome are reported by the departments involved. The end result was a system with brilliant production performance.
When Products Fail
Spectacular failures tend to attract much attention. It is simple curiosity as to why it happened and why something was not done to prevent it. One such event was the engine fire on a Boeing 777 flight over Denver in February 2021.
Modular Cubes with Modular Connection System for Smart Factory
KOSF's key project are the Smart Cubes, which are modular blocks that perform a dedicated task in the automation process, e.g. quality inspection, testing cells, robotic assembly, packaging and many more.
How to Go Lean With Your Assembly Line Layout
Every operation has different goals and resources, so what lean looks like will vary. Still, there are some general concepts you can follow to create a lean assembly line.
Determining Cost-Effective Error Recovery in Automation Plants
This article presents a research study that determined the optimal error recovery method from a cost standpoint. And, while this research study only considered cost in error recovery, it shows the potential value of error recovery planning in automation plants.
Improving Efficiency in Counting Applications
Now that counting scales can store information electronically, piece count weights can be measured once and stored, rather than weighed again and again each time a new count must be taken.
Intensive Failure Analysis Optimizes CNC Spindle Performance and Life
Comprehensive failure analysis and detailed documentation are indispensable tools in preventing recurring spindle failures, and can lead to improved performance.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing
Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
