This event is designed for control engineers who wish to reduce the installation complexity and cost of an automated system. Examples include assembly machines and material handling solutions. Professionals interested in simplifying function safety designs will learn why AS-Interface Safety at Work offers exceptional flexibility at significantly reduced costs.
Sensors provide the starting point for control systems. Any smart phone user can easily identify the smarts associated with the sensing in their phone. However, cars, homes, factories, cities and essentially anything with a smart prefix and control requirements takes advantage of smart sensors. With today’s increasing system complexities, more and more smart sensors are being offered to reduce system complexity, simplify connectivity and the systems designer’s task and provide more value to the end user. In May, Design News will look at the growing trend toward smart or intelligent sensors in...
Robots are getting smarter, safer, and easier to use due to advances in the components that make up today’s robots. This webinar will look at the advanced technology that lives under the skin of today’s fixed, mobile, and collaborative robots. We will also look at advances in robot control systems, power systems, sensors, data communications, and grippers. Design News Senior Editor Rob Spiegel will take attendees through the advances in robot components that are making robots more versatile while delivering a quicker return on investment.
It’s important for your injection molding vendor to have options that will enable you to select a molding solution tailored to your project’s requirements. On-demand manufacturing is ideal if you require low-volume production of end-use molded parts over several years. If you're looking for the lowest possible tooling costs and only need to produce less than 2,000 molded parts, prototyping option fits well. This webinar will compare important elements of the on-demand manufacturing and prototyping options with a look at mold cost, maintenance, ownership, and quality documentation.
