The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 3 component servo
drive from Rockwell Automation provides machine builders the ability to better
match the needs of manufacturers without the complexity of traditional servo
solutions. Offered in models as small as 50W, the drive provides the
flexibility to tailor axes to a machine's actual power requirement, which will
minimize system size and cost. Its compact design makes the drive ideal for
machines that require less than 1.5 kW and up to 12.55 N-m of instantaneous
torque, such as intermittent form/fill/seal machines, indexing tables, medical
devices, laboratory automation equipment and semiconductor processing.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
