ABB has announced that it has further enhanced its IRC5 controller operating system with the latest release of RobotWare. RobotWare 5.10 adds a host of improvements aimed at delivering greater levels of control and accuracy for robot applications.
The VGS series of products comprises three gripper system sizes: 2010, 3010 and 5010. Each system utilises an integrated COAX cartridge, designed to position vacuum power precisely where it's needed, making maximum use of energy and increasing speed by eliminating line losses and inefficiencies
National Instruments has released the NI cRIO-9072 and cRIO-9074 CompactRIO systems that give engineers and machine builders a suitable solution for rapidly deploying industrial machines at high volume.
“This agreement is significant as Wellington’s technology will be in products available through an established, global sales organisation,” WDT managing director Ross Green said.
With NDC Infrared every sensor and every scanning frame comes with its own built-in intelligence for higher speed and greater accuracy in measurement. This distributed intelligence is achieved by a state-of-the-art processing engine called a D-BRIC. Each D-BRIC is smaller than 4 x 6" (10 x 15 cm), yet powerful enough to run an entire gauging system on its own.
Schneider Electric has released the Modicon M340 programmable controller which complements its Modicon Premium (medium to large controllers) and Quantum (large to extra large controllers) for industry and infrastructures.
Adept Electronic Solutions is opening an office in Melbourne and is celebrating with a Machine Vision Open Day on 22 November.
Being able to integrate continuous, batch and hybrid processing technology into an integrated control system with management, analytic and optimisation capabilities has largely eluded industry to date
