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
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.
Usually, optical laser measurement systems or radar sensors are used for displacement and distance measurements over long distances of up to several hundred meters. However, these optical distance sensors do not work reliable in the long term under all environmental conditionsRead more
In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.
Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.Read more
This post is about a special designed capacitive proximity Sensor rated for high-temperature and high-pressure to detect the resin fill level inside the Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM Process) mould.Read more
