And then there were seven. The EPCE electric cylinder has become the seventh member of Festo’s Simplified Motion Series (SMS), a family of electric actuators that mimics the simplicity of pneumatics in performing simple point-to-point movements or positioning tasks. Each has an integrated servo drive, controller and electronics, and two on-board control options as standard: Digital I/O and IO-Link.

 

 

 

Parker Hannifin has introduced the Parker Service Master CONNECT, a strong diagnostic measuring device for mobile and stationary hydraulic applications, for example, in service, commissioning and in research and development. The device records measurements such as pressure, temperature, flow rate and rotational speed safely and accurately.

 

 

 

Beckhoff is unlocking entirely new possibilities in machine design with the introduction of XPlanar. In this innovative system for flying motion control, planar movers float freely above planar tiles arranged in customizable layouts and enable extremely flexible, precise and highly dynamic positioning. For machine builders and manufacturers, this results in maximum flexibility and simplification in machine and plant designs.

 

 

 

High performance for demanding applications. Our MOVIAXIS multi-axis servo inverter is motion control at the highest level. MOVIAXIS: the right choice for control quality within demanding applications involving several electrical axes.

 

 

 

Electromate LBR40The LBR40 is a slim, stackable linear rotary actuator with a SMAC HT35 direct drive brushless motor.

 

 

 

B&R's intelligent track system SuperTrak is now available in a vertical-mount variant. This helps to optimize the output per square meter of floor space. If products are only transported on the upper side of the SuperTrak, the weight is not supported magnetically. Instead the load is transferred directly to the rollers. The shuttles have a much higher payload capacity.

 

 

 

Festo is meeting the need of the North American automotive sector for a powerful yet flexible valve terminal with IO-Link connectivity on board. Festo’s VTSA IO-Link, now shipping, includes an IO-Link connector for use on the company’s workhorse ISO valve manifold VTSA, and has already become a core product of some automotive customers that want the performance, diagnostics and simplicity of IO-Link on the shop floor.

 

 

 

Balluff’s new absolute magnetic linear encoders with Siemens Drive-Cliq interface are designed to integrate perfectly into Siemens motion controller environments. Plug-and-play installation makes incorporating them into the drive system easy. The controller automatically detects the sensor and its basic settings.

 

 

 

The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. is proud to release Yaskawa Compass, a new software user interface tool for advanced manufacturing. Yaskawa Compass is your CNC navigator, a graphical user software package applicable to multiple applications in 3D printing, shape cutting, machine tool, and robotics.

 

 

 

The new DPDM Multimount compact cylinder is Festo’s smallest, lightest and most economical choice yet in its class. It’s ideal for many applications compact cylinders perform, such as stopping or stabilizing small work pieces or work platforms in light manufacturing. It’s noticeably smaller than Festo’s widely used DMM compact cylinder and unique for the variety of ways it can be fastened in place directly. It can be mounted at the front or rear, vertically or horizontally, hence the “Multimount” in its name.

 

 

 

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
