  • Increase Pick Density and Find Flow Track with Higher Capacity and Better Flow Than Plastic Wheel Lanes
    Thomas & Howard, a large wholesale grocer based in South Carolina, had a twofold objective when they decided to refine its order picking procedure: 1. Increase the number of pick locations within the existing setup. 2. Find a heavy duty flow track that would provide reliable carton flow
  • Machine Vision Industry Focus: Putting Light to Work
    spectrometers pick up light from a target that is transmitted through a flexible optical fiber. These fibers are not the kind used to transmit telecom signals. They are specialty fibers designed specifically to pass different light qualities that depend on the application at hand. These fiber assemblies
  • Peering into the Core of a Globular Cluster
    center of gravity. The stars are packed so densely in the cluster's core that it is difficult for ground-based telescopes to make out individual stars. Hubble's high resolution is able to pick up where ground-based telescopes leave off, capturing distinct points of light from stars at the very center of
  • Smart Computing Article - Pointing The Way
    March 2000 Vol.8 Issue 3 Add To My Personal Library We Pick Our Favorite Mice & Trackballs Pointing and clicking for hours on end with 24 different mice and trackballs tends to shed some light on what works and what doesn't where pointing devices are concerned. After exhaustively testing
  • University of Waterloo Skip to the content of the web site.
    three-dimensional pictures of parts of the eye that are so small they would not otherwise be visible. The device shines a focused laser beam into the eye and has a photo-detector device that can pick up and analyse light reflected back from deep within the retinal area. It penetrates the cornea and the lens
  • IR vision: more than meets the eye
    Machine-vision experts say infrared can spot defects better than ordinary cameras or the naked eye. Infrared detectors complement the visible-light spectrum of machine-vision equipment with images of heat sources located on or just below (about 0.001 in.) the surface of an object. Although
  • Software for designing springs
    holders rely on beam springs for contacts. When the need for a spring arise, users can pick a reasonable fit from a catalog, or design the perfect one using software such as SpringCAD. The software handles all calculations for designing several varieties of beam, compression, extension, helical torsion
  • Stepmotor Selection via the Web -- An Engineer's Perspective
    Web-based design wizards help engineers pick the right motor for the job. A recent project brought to light some new motor-selection tools that saved a lot of time and effort. This particular project needed a motor for a linear-drive system that used a leadscrew. Time to market was an issue, but we
