The IM-6500 Series from Keyence is a new type of measurement device. It is a completely new concept to rival established measuring equipment such as profile projectors, measuring microscopes or automatic CNC measuring machines. The dimensional measurement concept of the IM-6500 series utilises state of the art imaging technology, thus enabling any user to perform reliable measurements in a minimum of time and with an increased accuracy. You simply place a part on a measurement stage, push the button and up to 99 dimensions are measured in a few seconds with accuracies down to 0.7 micron. No tiresome positioning, nor risks of measurement variance or deviation between individual operators. The simplicity of use results in the IM-6500 series emerging as a massive cost saving alternative to traditional time consuming measurement processes.
LATROBE, Pa. - Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) announced today that it has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by The Ethisphere Institute, a leading international think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability.
Traditionally, mechanical, electrical and software elements have been strictly separated and developed in a rigid sequence. Today, these disciplines are merging into a more integrated mechatronic approach. This not only paves the way for more efficient parallel development, but also simplifies coordination between mechanical, electrical and software engineers. This is why B&R integrates existing expert tools into the Automation Studio development platform via interfaces that ensure full transparency and functionality. Automation Studio provides all the functions needed to develop and configure an automation solution – such as those for creating control and HMI applications, linking motion control components, safety technology and much more. Expert tools are integrated via open, transparent interfaces to provide specialized functionality – such as EPLAN Electric P8 for electrical planning.
The IM Series is a new type of measurement device. More than a profile projector, a measuring microscope or an automatic CNC measuring device, the dimensional measurement concept by imagery technology of the IM-6000 series is a new system with which it becomes possible to perform reliable measurements in a minimum of time and with an increased accuracy. You simply place the part to be calibrated, push the button and up to 99 dimensions are measured in a few seconds with accuracy down to 0.5 micron. No tiresome positioning, nor risks of measurement variance or deviation between the various operators. Finally, it is a cost saving alternative to traditional processes.
With this new sensor, Keyence makes vision sensors accessible to everyone. Affordable, quick start-up and easy to use: no need to be an expert. This new solution is highly reliable and covers virtually all vision sensors' needs, making it a beneficial alternative to one or more sensors when detection needs to follow a moving target.
The ProLinx ‘Modbus TCP/IP’ to ‘IEC-61850’ gateway has been designed for remote control of substations in electricity distribution systems. It enables communication between the Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) on one side (on an IEC-61850 network) and the Schneider Electric Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) on the other side (on a Modbus TCP/IP network).
