Chicago, Ill. -Who says Siemens was absent from this year's National Manufacturing Week (NMW) show? Located somewhat off the beaten path, Siemens Energy & Automation Vacuum Pumps & Compressors (Norwood, O.) had a presence in McCormick Place South. Applicable products were shown, albeit in a booth of diminutive size by Siemens standards.

'Motion Hall'- some 100 exhibitors covering motors, drives, power transmission, and motion controls-finally made it to the main floor of the McCormick Place complex. It was part of National Design Engineering in the North Hall.

Unitronics (Lod, Israel) exhibited eight new models and enhanced features of its M90 palm-sized micro PLC and integral operator panel at the National Industrial Automation Show, part of NMW. (For more detail, see March 8, 2001 Daily News )


Manufacturing Data Systems Inc. (MDSI, Ann Arbor, Mich.) introduced WinMotion, a software product that targets the general motion control market. WinMotion incorporates soft motion methods, servo tuning tools, expanded configuration tools, and an API that allows connection to third-party software.

Danaher Motion (Simsbury, Conn.) made its debut as a business unit at NMW, presenting technologies of several of its brand offerings. Products from API Motion, Kollmorgen, Pacific Scientific, and Superior Electric were shown together in one place. (See more about Danaher Motion in Feb. 20, 2001 Daily News )

Murrelektronik Inc. (Doylestown, Pa.) displayed its specialty products of power supplies and bus distribution boxes. Its new, compact MCS Series power supplies include DIN-rail mounting and power factor correction, which is now a 'standards' requirement for using these devices in Europe. Murrelektronik's IP67 bus distribution boxes are available for Profibus-DP, DeviceNet, Interbus, or CANopen protocols. These distribution boxes come with functional displays and in-line diagnostics. Their software protocol can identify a fault and send information to a central controller to dramatically reduce troubleshooting time.
