08 Series of Inductive Sensors are for limited space distance measurement
and positioning applications involving metal targets. The sensors measure 4.7 x
8 x 16 mm and have resolutions of <0.001 mm at sensing distances up to 2 mm
and offer high linearity and repeat accuracy.
08 Series sensors feature an integrated 0 to 10V output to allow them to be
directly connected to the analog outputs of a control system and eliminates the
need for measuring boards or processing units. These IP67-rated sensors are
contained in a die-cast zinc/nickel-plated housing to prevent damage during
installation and operation.
IWFM 08 Series Inductive Sensors are designed for use in factory
automation and assembly/handling applications including:
solar cell/PV manufacturing
These sensors are also useful in highly precise end use
applications such as:
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
