Exhibitors in the Sensors Pavilion at Manufacturing Week are pushing
technology forward in many systems, meeting varied applications in the diverse
industrial automation field.
Mikron Infrared of Oakland, NJ is unveiling a non-contact temperature
measurement system that is one of the first that can work with shiny metals.
It’s also one of the fastest monitors in the market, checking temperature in
just 500 microseconds. The sensor can detect temperatures as low as 122 degrees
F, even with shiny metals. That’s usually a problem, since reflections can cause
remote sensors to read temperatures of reflected objects, not the desired metal
component. High accuracy and load capability are the keys of a High Capacity
Series Load cells from Interface Inc. of Scottsdale, AZ. The company’s
proprietary strain gage technology provides high temperature compensation and
high output and circuit efficiency. The line’s capacity runs up to 1,000 kilos.
The system is packaged in frame that can hold 1 million pounds.
Saving time is the key benefit of the EVN series electro mechanical switches
from Honeywell Sensing and Control of Freeport, IL. The switches, originally
developed for use in elevators in Europe, have simplified techniques for
attaching wires, cutting installation time by as much as 50%.
The High Capacity Line from Interface can
weight loads up to 1,000
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
