Mitsubishi Electric controller boosts the performance of Blue Phoenix’s IBA recycling facility. A by-product of the power generation process at waste-to-energy plants, incinerator bottom ash (IBA) can be recycled into construction aggregates and metals.
TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) presents the new C35 type pressure sensor element, designed to measure a range of 0 to 100 mbar. It combines high sensitivity with extremely low dimensions of just 2.05 x 2.05 x 1.2 mm, enabling compact pressure sensor designs.
One of North America’s leading bottled water companies - dedicated to both providing customers with healthy hydration options and to keeping their employees safe - needed a solution to help optimize their asset life cycles. Their primary goal was defining cost-effective, consistent maintenance processes for their facilities, and adopting the technologies needed to support and sustain these processes throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Growing Adoption of Desktop Metal’s Shop System Is Enabling Affordable, Batch Production of High-Quality Metal Parts Throughout Europe. As Desktop Metal (NYSE: DM) continues to advance Additive Manufacturing 2.0 (AM 2.0) to reshape the future of manufacturing with mass production and turnkey AM solutions, the company is seeing growing European demand for metal binder jetting, including the Shop System, the world’s first metal binder jetting system designed for machine shops.
The new safety card PMCprotego S3 expands the drive-integrated safe motion solution PMCprotego DS, adding further safe motion monitoring functions in accordance with EN 61800-5-2. With these functions it is now possible to configure an application-specific error reaction in advance, flexibly and individually via the engineering tool PASmotion. That reduces machine downtimes, so that plants always achieve maximum productivity, despite the most varied of safety requirements. This guarantees high plant availability.
Innovative technologies are substantially reshaping industrial communications, enhancing their existing capabilities as well as providing new tools. Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is one of these and its essential role for industrial communications is becoming increasingly evident. This is why businesses should act now to implement TSN within their enterprises.
