    and write neutral-formatted output files, like APT CL data. An external postprocessor program then translates the neutral data to a specific machine tool focusing on machine tool kinematics and controller syntax information. This traditional process has certainly been successfully applied. However

    of the machine. The underlying goal is to reduce costs while providing a marketable "total cost of ownership.". A simple strategy is to make low-voltage, DC-based controls a design standard. This design choice improves the efficiency, reliability and safety, while also reducing the lifetime cost
  • Design Considerations for Heavy Duty/Off-road Interior Switches
    Switches no longer are viewed as a simple electrical component. Today, they are the primary interface when powering devices, triggering relays, selecting functions or enabling a myriad of human/machine interfaces. Depending on the application, the switch may or may not be seen, and may not directly
    Right from the initial selection of a drive, a designer has to make careful considerations when looking for the optimal motor for his application. Determining the torque and speed, selecting a pneumatic motor from a supplier catalog and clarifying the size and connections required for the machine
  • Design Win: Confectionary Handling and Weighing Equipment (.pdf)
    One of the world's largest manufacturers of confectionary has developed new equipment for handling and weighing fruit. Developed and engineered in house, this new process machine had to be simple to configure, reliable in operation and easy to maintain. Altogether 120 process valves had

    foot, and swivel mounts. These simple devices support your machine, and therefore, are as varied in design as machines themselves.
  • Solid Edge Diagramming (.pdf)
    PLM Software recognizes that some design problems are still best solved using simple 2D geometry, such as machine layouts and schematic diagrams; Solid Edge (R) software includes tools for these tasks.
  • Say 'NO' to Safety Reliability Calculations (.pdf)
    is additional manufacturer responsibility due to the requirement of "functional safety.". This paper will review the effect of these changes in regard to a simple safety design strategy and will introduce readers to a new safety motor starter technology that is pre-certified to meet the new safety
