Good News — There's Money for Automation!

Good News — There's Money for Automation! Here's your chance to convince industry leaders that investing in automation is in their best interest. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, commonly known as the economic stimulus bill, allocates more than $10 billion to water and wastewater treatment with another $100 billion targeted for the transportation and energy sectors. Tax deductions for small businesses investing in capital improvements are also written in. This Automation.com article gives a breakdown of funds and recommends other resources to help you position yourself to benefit from the investment in the economy.

See Process Changes in Color
SMC Corporation of America

See Process Changes in Color Spending too much time recalibrating your equipment? If increased productivity and decreased costs sound too good to be true, imagine having both without sacrificing performance. SMC introduces the new ISE30A, a 2-Color Display, high precision digital pressure switch. Gone are the days of unclear pressure monitoring. Add color to your world!

Embed Tactile Sensing into Robots
Pressure Profile Systems, Inc.

Embed Tactile Sensing into Robots The human symbiotic robot built by mechanical engineers from Waseda University in Japan has soft hands and fingers that gently grip with enough strength to lift humans and interact with subtle movements that respond to human touch.

Robots' Place in Flexible Manufacturing

Robots' Place in Flexible Manufacturing When flexibility is needed in manufacturing, robots are superior to hard automation. Robots can run different products on the same line. They are key in effectively handling low-volume orders, which require rapid tool changes and quick, easy integration with PLC platforms. Assembly Magazine details what major robotics manufacturers are doing to increase robot flexibility and ease implementation and changeover issues.

Is Robotic Sealing Right for You?

 Robotic Sealing Right for You? Is your factory a good candidate for a sealing robot? This comprehensive piece examines everything from epoxy application to the details of part presentation. Discover the pros of automation, including materials savings, removing people from unfriendly application environments, and decreasing your carbon footprint. Then you can decide if your factory would benefit from purchasing a sealing robot.

What You Need to Know About Wireless Networks

What You Need to Know About Wireless Networks Crawling under machines to connect and route cables is a thing of the past, thanks to wireless technology. Reliability is critical and mesh networks (networks that use multiple nodes to relay signals instead of relying on point-to-point communication) provide it. Designing wireless networks requires extensive planning — detecting noise, choosing a frequency, writing and implementing procedures, and ensuring security. This Motion Control Online article provides details on each of these facets.

Mind Control

Mind Control Watch Asimo the robot be controlled by pure thought in this video. A person wears a helmet that detects brain waves much like an EEG does. The information is relayed to a computer for processing and then sent to the robot. The current system is slow and unwieldy, but Honda, the developer, has big plans. In addition to allowing people to open a car trunk by just thinking about it, Honda hopes that mind-controlled Asimo will be reliable enough to assist the elderly by 2020.

Servos for Robots and Mobile Platforms
Advanced Motion Controls

Servos for Robots and Mobile Platforms Quantity and type of motion-controlled axes on robots can vary, including: traction, propulsion, steering, actuation for extension, rotation or twist, grippers, etc. Selecting the right servo drive can lead OEMs to a faster time-to-market. DigiFlex® Performance™ servos from ADVANCED Motion Control have proven they're perfect for these applications. More info…

The New Type RW Double-row Roller Ring
THK America, Inc.

The New Type RW Double-row Roller Ring The Type RW Double-Row Roller Ring from THK America features compact, yet highly rigid, construction. The double-row roller structure at 45° and integrated inner and outer rings of the Type RW result in 20-30% higher rigidity than competitor models. Learn more.

RFID Tag Works on Metals

RFID Tag Works on Metals Control and tracking of metal pieces is now possible with a new inset ID tag that uses HF band radio waves to circumvent the eddy current problem associated with metals. The small tag is fully enclosed in sealed plastic making it suitable for both outdoor and industrial uses.

Go Ahead, Torque That Cable!

Go Ahead, Torque That Cable! Is cable failure an issue in your process? Cables that experience a lot of torsion are prime candidates for failure. Chainflex® CF Robot is a shielded, twistable robot cable. Buffer elements between the sheath, the shield, and the insulation slide across each other to absorb torsional movements and extend cable life.

To Improve Productivity, Improve Safety

To Improve Productivity, Improve Safety When the pressure is on, safety measures are often short-circuited, leading to injury and downtime. "When safety is part of the design, it doesn't compromise production or ease of use, like guarding slapped on as an afterthought sometimes does," says safety expert Frank Schrever. He promotes combining maximum safety with maximum efficiency by using such things as safety systems with drag and drop software to make changes quickly and easy.

Be Careful with That Torch!

Be Careful with That Torch! Robotic welding is much safer for operators than welding by hand, as long as proper safeguarding is in place. Light screens, interlock switches, and two-hand controls all have their place in automated welding. Use safety controllers to interface the various safety elements and create one smoothly-operating system.

When Companies "Aren't Hiring"

When Companies 'Aren't Hiring' Dave Perry, a longtime headhunter, says that in these lean times job seekers must tap the hidden job market. He suggests taking several weeks to research companies and list a handful that you're really interested in. Then he has some unique suggestions to stand out from the crowd such as using LinkedIn to check out the bosses, or sending coffee cups through the mail.

Lego Robot Keeps the Beat

Lego Robot Keeps the Beat A robot made of Legos (really!) by a student at the University of Porto combines a system for intelligent hearing with mathematical algorithms to pick up a rhythm. The robot reacts to the rhythm of the music, or to changing colored lights, and executes dance moves. The next step? To spiff up the current dance moves with more advanced choreography.

About This Month's Topic... Money for Automation

No U.S. stimulus money is set aside for automation, but some could still end up in the area. How can automation professionals make that happen?
