Also this year we will represent at the Hannover Messe. See you in April!
In case you don’t know these guys: LinusTechTips provides news, articles, reviews and techguides about everything, err, technical. Topics vary from SSD’s, videocards, mobile phones, televisions to 3D-printing. These guys are so technical that they don’t have a ‘normal’ website, but they host a pretty large forum. They also create a lot of videos and one
Fresh milk is one of those commodities that we tend to take for granted, and it’s easy to forget just how difficult it is to deliver in packaged form, as we were reminded recently by a short article in The Atlantic . The fundamental problem is that milk is a biological product, and once it
Do you remember Terminator 2, where the shape-shifting robot rises from a pool of liquid? Well, that inspired the researchers from the company Carbon3D to change their perspective on 3D printing. Instead of printing layer for layer, this technology ‘grows’ the parts. Watch the video to get an impression. One of Carbon3D’s co-founders Joseph DeSimone, who
At this years Ceatec, Omron presents a hands-on demonstration of the ping-pong robot. For continuation of ping-pong rallies, the robot forecasts the ball trajectory and velocity based on information about the movement of the human opponent and position of the ball. It then “thinks” and returns the ball to a spot facilitating return by the
In this third of a series of articles looking at the challenges surrounding machine building, Dan Rossek and Richard Wilkins of Omron examine how safety can be an enabler for increased productivity and reduced total cost of ownership. There are few issues in machine design that are more emotively loaded than safety, and it is
Can you add value to your machines, perhaps adding greater sophistication and complexity, without impacting on development time and programming cost? Robert Brooks and Karl Walker look at the evolution of a new breed of machine controllers. At the heart of every machine is a machine controller. That might seem an obvious thing to say,
Omron US has donated equipment to support the creation of the Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory to the Northern Illinois University College of Engineering . That of course is nice to know, but they have also created a brilliant video where future engineers speak about engineering. Must watch!
Jodie Commercial, components product marketing manager at Omron, explains the importance of accurate temperature control in sealing applications on Form, Fill and Seal machines Whether it is the product manufacturer, machine builder or automation supplier, they are all working towards one goal: finding the best way to move vulnerable goods from producer to consumer. Ultimately
With background debate concerning growth in the manufacturing sector, and the wider topic of whether the UK adopts automation and robotics in line with global competitors, Omron’s Robert Brooks addresses some of the issues that might be making machine builders nervous about using robotics. This article was featured in the Control, Drives & Automation magazine
At the UK’s 2013 Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition Omron showed a ‘smile calibrator’ with OKAO technology designed to measure, compare and even calibrate the smiles of visitors. People were invited to check the quality of their smile and even compare it against that of a friend. This article was featured in the Controls, Drives
Loimex, Located in Barcelona, manufactures auxiliary machines to measure, wind, cut and store cable. It has been the leader in its sector for over 40 years. In an effort to maintain this position, the company works closely with Omron for the automation of their machines. Cable winding machines make it possible for a single operator
