Lab equipment assists diagnostic activities. It often consists of high tech systems which use a variety of components. Manufacturers of equipment often qualify standard sensors (“catalogue goods”) or modifications of standard sensors as component purchasing within a defined supplier management.Read more
Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators and other large household appliances are manufactured in complex, highly automated manufacturing processes.
But even in predominantly manual production and assembly processes, individual process steps can also be effectively automated. One example is the quality inspection of the drive belt assembly in a washing machine production.
Like most industries, the hydraulics industry also had to cope with the pandemic in 2020, although a recovery was already noticeable during the year. This could be because a broad range of applications and industries are served – and the industry is successfully taking on the current challenges of energyRead more
In order to increase the utilization and overall system effectiveness of machine tools, the production engineers plan automation solutions for the automatic loading and unloading of workpieces in the CNC machining center or the CNC lathe. Machine tool builders offer appropriate automation equipment as an option when purchasing new machines.Read more
Increasing complexity of products often means increasing complexity of manufacturing processes, with a simultaneous increase in the degree of automation. This leads to a growing field of application for sensors, which, however, are not always perfectly suited for every application. This often means: customized sensor solutions are needed.
In this article you will learn what customer and application specific sensors are all about, who needs them and how to get them.
Out with the (c)old, in with the new Recently I needed to look into time-to-live (TTL) capabilities within ElasticSearch. It has been several years since I used this feature (version 1.5, to precise – aeons ago!) Unsurprisingly, things have changed significantly since. Instead of setting _ttl in the index mappingRead more
Introduction In an earlier article I mentioned briefly some possibilities for bringing python-trained machine learning models into production. Specifically, a java environment. In this article I will take a closer look at how this can done and what pitfalls we should avoid. Keras In the words of the Keras website,Read more
Introduction When we work with classification or regression models we are seeking to predict either a discrete value, or a value along a continuum. The accuracy of these models is implicit in the metric we use when training: either in the cost function during the actual training, or something likeRead more
Introduction Why Dask? For those of us who regularly work with python machine learning libraries, the Pandas DataFrame library is a firm fixture in our toolkit. Pandas DataFrames allow fast and efficient manipulation of data and a host of data wrangling functions. And the processing is fast because pandas doesRead more
