A manufacturer of sheet metal assemblies recently sought a solution to short lifespan issues with the drive and guide elements on its automated welding systems. In fact, the linear guides for a robotic welding gun on one particular production line had to be replaced every two or three months. Due to the cost of replacement parts and maintenance time, as well as equipment downtime, the company asked NSK to investigate and provide a proposal to address the problem.
Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, announced today its extensive portfolio of energy-efficient and smart Datacenter Infrastructure Solutions, already bolstering the creation of green datacenters and edge computing datacenters with either AC, converged AC-DC and high voltage DC (HVDC) architectures in key regions of the world, is a hit at CeBIT 2017. The new prefabricated all-in-one Containerized Datacenter, and the new 600kVA-1.2MVA UPS featuring the world’s highest power density of 600kVA/m2 for optimal footprint, are both pillars of Delta’s unrivaled competence in optimizing the productivity and carbon footprint of highly demanding datacenters.
The world leader in power electronics and energy management system solutions, Delta Electronics, will use the CeBIT 2017 exhibition (20-24 March, Hannover, Germany) to showcase its all-in-one containerized datacenter. This new-generation unit features converged AC and DC power supplies to suit ever-evolving edge computing applications at telecommunications companies and network carriers. Importantly, it also offers comprehensive cooling, customizable DCIM (datacenter infrastructure management), scalable capacity and quick deployment for implementation anywhere.
The newest generation DATAPAQ EasyTrack3 system makes profiling oven cure of painted and powder-coated products as easy as never before. Fluke Process Instruments has equipped the data logger with a rugged and light polycarbonate casing that withstands harsh treatment and heat up to 100 °C without distortion and without harm to the electronics. Versions with four or six thermocouple channels are available. Data is stored in a non-volatile memory – the capacity has been tripled to up to 18,000 readings per channel.
As aluminium becomes the material of choice for automotive manufacturing, a global leader in advanced material development and application is helping aluminium casters to improve quality of output and reduce rejections by avoiding metal contamination in the melting and holding process.
Tamagawa’s range of tri-axis inertial measurement sensors are widely used in the car and vehicle applications from driver monitoring to fully autonomous vehicles, here Jon Bentley of Mclennan – Tamagawa’s UK distributor for industrial applications, explores some other interesting uses that this technology is being be applied to.
