  • Smart sensing drives press productivity

    In most press shops, damaged tooling is the number one cause of downtime. Misalignment, short feed, over feed, slug stacking and part ejection failures can damage dies that cost upwards of $10,000 to replace and create hazardous conditions for operators. Learn more

    Obsolete middleware can bring a modern fabrication line to its knees

    Many semiconductor, FPD, and LED plants use obsolete middleware to enable SECS/GEM communication. Middleware failure potentially can disable a production line for days, weeks, or months. Omron’s NJ SECS/GEM solution provides a more reliable and easier to configure solution for connecting backend equipment to host systems. Learn more
  • When is a safety mat better than a laser scanner?

    In the new flexible factory environment, customers require that every piece of automation earns its spot in the manufacturing process. This means that, not only purchase price, but operator safety, reliability, maintenance, and repair costs all go into the equipment purchase decision. Providing a safe and reliable solution in a robot-AGV-human environment is a must.

    Want to optimize manufacturing production?

    Power quality is a requirement in modern manufacturing environments. Transient harmonic distortion, brownout voltage sags and swells, voltage reductions, momentary disruptions and interruptions, and current spikes are an increasingly common problem. Learn more
  • Using SQL to speed up data logging and create a more secure and integrated environment

    Data logging is a critical part of the manufacturing process. For decades manufacturers have used SCADA or gateway systems to perform this task. However, these tend to be complex to support and vulnerable to cyber-attacks. It also requires more time to poll monitored devices.

  • Using (AGVs) to create a more flexible and efficient production environment

    Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are a key component of a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) and are a proven technology to improve efficiency, safety, and quality in an automotive manufacturing environment. Reliable, configurable, easily programmable, and real-time communication capabilities are critical to successful implementation. Learn more
