Baumer's FKDK 14
contrast sensors are for print mark detection and are useful in packaging and
printing machines. Utilizing white light as the light source, the FKDK 14
series can detect print marks of all colors, even with slight contrast to the
background. Optimized for high throughput speed, the new contrast sensor
offers a response time down to 50 ΅. This allows short throughput times to be
achieved. The contrast sensor is very compact and can be integrated into any
machine. The 2-point teach-in procedure can also be conducted during process.
The switching status is indicated with an LED, which is
visible through the transparent housing base of the contrast scanner.
The FKDK 14 is suited for applications in packaging and graphic
machinery. Providing a solution for print mark or printing plate detection, the
FKDK 14 diffuse contrast sensor combines short response time and a compact
housing with the white light source.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
