The Paradox of Smart Manufacturing

POSTED: 06/22/2018

Smart drives and control platforms provide a way for companies to improve manufacturing while lowering price, enabling them to deliver more for less. Under SPS Italy 2018 topic of “The challenges of automation: efficiency and flexibility”, which will be held on the second day, Wednesday 23th May. Consumers today want more, more

Centrifuge with Bluetooth Communications

POSTED: 06/06/2018

LK Industries specializes in petroleum testing equipment. Our controls are used with vehicular mounted oil testing centrifuges that separate water and sediment from oil. The centrifuge requires specific pre-heat & spin cycles…determined by the operator. Previously, the speed & heat level of the centrifuge could only be adjusted by the

Automated Conference Walls

POSTED: 06/06/2018

Advanced Equipment Corporation (AEC), a Southern California based manufacturer of operable walls, came to us with an application that involved the design of a motor drive to be used in a newly developed track system. The concept of the new system involved the automation of the wall placement process. The

Fast Settling Servo Drives Speed Wafer Testing

POSTED: 05/01/2018

Semiconductor fabrication requires a complex sequence of time-consuming steps using highly sophisticated and expensive equipment. The reason the microelectronics industry can deliver massive computing power at reasonable pricing is because of batch processing—the ability to fabricate hundreds of identical chips simultaneously on wafers the size of dinner plates. The economics

Postpartum hemorrhaging is a major cause of maternal mortality in the developing world. The condition requires immediate medical treatment and transfusion with appropriate blood products. Accessing

Distribution Center Conveyor

POSTED: 01/22/2018

A large distribution and fulfillment center needed motors to power a new conveyor belt system in several of its warehouses. The loading on the belts was variable from nearly no load to carrying parcels that weighted several hundred pounds. The belts run continuously for 24 hours a day and only

Slitting without edge deformation

POSTED: 01/10/2018

Narrow tapes require high torque stability / HERO relies on decentralized servo technology from AMK. HERO GmbH uses decentralized servo drive technology to slim down and tidy up their slitting and winding machines. Thanks to drive and control technology from AMK, the solutions of HERO GmbH in Sigmaringendorf, Germany, have done

Automation solution for modular packaging machines

POSTED: 01/05/2018

Because processes in packaging manufacturing are often modular, it is logical that today's packaging manufacturing plants also have a modular design. As a result, planning times are reduced, the machines can be built faster, and the modification of existing plants is simplified. Lohmann&Rauscher has been a major player in medical and

Welding guns: coupled controller motion

POSTED: 01/04/2018

Electrics instead of pneumatics: decentralized servo technology brings greater energy efficiency. Electrically-driven welding guns are supporting the automotive industry's move away from expensive, energy-intensive compressed air. Thanks to decentralized servo technology, Nimak GmbH has successfully designed welding guns as independent, compact units that can be connected flexibly to all commonly-used robot

Out of the control cabinet, into the winder

POSTED: 12/15/2017

Space is always an issue: Kocher+Beck relies on decentralized servo technology from AMK for its matrix transfer winders. First unwind, then rewind – and print, laminate, and die cut in between. The UR Precision U unwinding system of Kocher+Beck is designed to feed web material to printing and converting machines nonstop
