Edge AI technology In Manufacturing Operations

A downside of so much automation is that there is now a heavier dependence on machinery/robots to perform action. For some lines, if one of robot goes down, the entire line does.

What's in Store for Edge Computing Deployments in 2020

During POC projects in the last few years, many organizations have confirmed the benefits that IIoT can bring to a wide variety of industries - and IoT spending is expected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2025, according to IDC.

How to Choose the Right Edge Computer

Choosing the right edge computer is not always easy. Every application has unique requirements that require thoughtful planning, especially for large scale deployments.

Why Edge Computing Is So Crucial for Industrial IoT

Edge computing serves two main purposes: extracting signal from noise by locally processing large volumes of data that are not feasible to send across the internet and providing the ability to process specific things locally where and when latency is a concern.

Edge Computing as it Relates to the Manufacturing Industry

Edge computing uses dedicated, on-premise resources at the shop-floor level, rather than the remote servers that cloud computing relies on. This provides a significant increase in the rate and amount of data that manufacturers can process in real-time.

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.
