RiPanel Online Enclosure
Rittal North America (Schaumburg,
IL) announced the new RiPanel online
enclosure configurator - making
it easy for machine and control system
design engineers to individually configure
industrial enclosures. This saves
time, helps to prevent errors, increases flexibility with data saving or
exporting, and speeds up processes through integrated interfaces.
RiPanel online enclosure configurator, industrial enclosure systems can
be more easily planned in 3D and configured individually. This solution
makes it easier to customize enclosures by adding needed accessories or
machining requirements. In addition, engineers can now import and
place individual cut-outs on the enclosure, so their customized requirements
are easily implemented. RiPanel also provides maximum transparency
and consistency throughout the entire engineering and manufacturing
processes.

Frameless Servo Motors
Kollmorgen (Radford, VA) announced
the new TBM2G series of
frameless servo motors, introducing
features that simplify the design of
collaborative, surgical, aerospace and
defense, and
other
robots. The
TBM2G series offers high-performance torque in an extremely compact
electromagnetics package. These next-generation motors enable
robots with lower joint weight, higher load-carrying capacity, improved
energy efficiency, lower thermal rise, and faster, smoother movements.
Frameless torque motors typically deliver their best performance at low
speeds but suffer at higher speeds. TBM2G motors remove this limitation
through advanced windings and materials that deliver industry-leading
power, torque, and efficiency consistently across a wide
speed range. The new series motors are sized for a perfect fit with
readily available strain wave systems, eliminating the need for extensive
customizations. The series is available in seven frame sizes with three
stack lengths each - a total of 21 standard motors that can be integrated
directly into robotic joints and similar embedded equipment.

Proximity Switch
Festo (Islandia, NY) introduced the
SDBT-MSX - the first programmable
proximity switch with automatic switching
point setting. With an initial detection
range of 20mm, the SDBT-MSX is
easy and reliable to install and commission,
especially in applications where mounting is difficult. The switch
is ideal for all standard applications, including factory automation and
the electronics industry/small parts handling. Only two steps are required
for installing an SDBT-MSX. The user simply fits the switch in
the approximate end stop position within the 20mm detection range
(which is marked on the sensor) and connects the cable to the controller.
No power supply is needed during installation. During first operation,
the proximity switch detects the end position of the piston stroke
and automatically
learns
and remembers
High-Speed Alignment Software
ABB Robotics (Cary, NC) launched a
software solution to transform speed
and accuracy in electronics assembly.
The software offers manufacturers the
ability to increase the speed of 6-axis
robots by 70 percent, and accuracy by
50 percent - significantly reducing
time-to-market while increasing accuracy
levels. The PC-based software includes Visual Servoing technology
using one or more cameras, combined with a computer vision system, to
control the position of the robot relative to the workpiece. As the robot is
moving, the cameras continuously capture image information that the
computer vision system processes to cross check and adjust the robotic
movements to deliver 0.01mm to 0.02mm precision. ABB's articulated
6-axis robots are highly flexible for handling complex tasks in tight spaces
and can perform a variety of meticulous placement tasks. Minimal programming
experience is required, as the software is easy-to-use and has an
intuitive user interface. Additionally, the software is compatible with a
wide range of cameras, and IRC5 and OmniCore™ robot controllers, allowing
system integrators to adapt existing installations.

Linear Guides
Expanding its LWL family of miniature
guides, IKO (Parsippany, NJ) introduced
its LWLF2 linear motion rolling guide,
which addresses the demand for device
miniaturization with a compact, lightweight
design that makes mounting easy
in tight spaces. The new LWLF2 features the same ultra-small 2.5-millimeter
height dimension as its predecessor, the LWL1. It is also designed with
tapped rails for bottom mounting and stability. As part of IKO's LWL
family of miniature rolling motion guides, the LWLF2 guide is structured
with two rows of balls that make contact with the raceway at four points to
provide high stability and accuracy - even in applications with varying
load direction or complexity. Stainless steel construction is standard, making
the new guides desirable in wet environments and applications where
rust prevention oil cannot be used, such as in a cleanroom environment.
The LWLF2's rail weighs 2 grams per 100 millimeters of length, and the
slide unit weighs 0.21 grams. IKO's LWL family of miniature linear motion
rolling guides is appropriate for robotics and grippers, semiconductor
fabrication, life sciences, and aerospace applications.

Control Cables
AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA)
added LUTZE SILFLEX®
FBP control
cables, specifically designed to meet all
UL and FDA requirements for cabling
used in Food and Beverage facilities.
The patent-pending food-safe design of
these cables has been evaluated by
third-party tester Ecolab for resistance to commonly used cleaning
agents and reduction of contamination risk. LUTZE SILFLEX®
cables
the switching point.
Alternatively, the switching point of the SDBT-MSX can be taught manually
using the capacitive control button. This flexibility can also reduce
the variety of sensor types needed to be kept in inventory. SDBTMSX
fits in all drives with a T-slot.

are available in sizes ranging from 20AWG to 12AWG and in shielded
and unshielded versions. The Phthalate-free jacket is resistant to oils
and fats that are common to food processing, and reduced cable diameters
allow for easy routing and installation in conduit. Cables may be
run without conduit in some areas due to the external wiring approval,
washdown certification, and food-contact rating.
