  • Flat Screen LCD Manipulator for Slot Machine Assembly
    Las Vegas based slot machine manufacturer receives LCD display panels from their vendor in a flat, horizontal orientation in cardboard boxes. When they arrive in the assembly area, the 55 lb panels need to be lifted out of the box, pitched 90 degrees about the horizontal axis, then pitched 15
  • Flat Networks for Flat Organizations (.pdf)
    In the past SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems were built using a complex pyramid of networked PLC's. These PLC's communicate real time control information using proprietary information networks. An emerging class of machine mounted I/O products now offer a better approach
  • Shaft Keys that Reduce Manufacturing Costs and Machine Downtime
    Feather Keys: The Forgotten and Ignored Drive Component A simple mechanical part can reduce manufacturing costs and machine downtime. * Engineers can choose from a wide range of shaft keys to transmit torque in power-transmission systems. * Feather keys are relatively unknown but offer durable
  • Water Jet Cutting Machine - Tough Environment
    A building products manufacturer that produces fiber-cement plank siding for homes needed an actuated system that would hold up in a harsh environment where cement dust covers everything in the plant. Originally, the machine was powered by an actuated system that utilized flat faced polyamide
  • Backlighting Options (.pdf)
    Thin and flexible for novel placement in product design, sELect displays allow for segmented touch-sensitive interaction. They can be combined with conventional flat panel switches and positioned behind graphical icons to create an aesthetic interactive display. Memtron refers to this coupling
  • When Should You Use Laser Cutting in Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication?
    With any custom sheet metal fabrication project, there are a variety of machines that can be used to accomplish the same design. Laser cutting is just one of many pieces of sheet metal equipment that is used to remove material from a flat piece of sheet metal. While each machine has its benefits
  • Principles of Bulk Bag Filling
    The primary objective when filling a bulk bag is to produce a safe package. This means that the bulk bag must be straight-sided, flat-topped and stable (without the need for external support such as shrink wrap, shrouds, etc.) when it exits the filler. There are ten basic functions to look
  • Making sense of motion networks
    to several motors. The central PC could be a software program, a microprocessor, or PLC. An example of a flat motion-control system is a printing press with multiple, servocontrolled spools. Because timing and latency are critical metrics in such a machine, a central controller (often a PC or PLC
