Control Engineering’s top 5 pieces of content over the past week covered robotics, variable frequency drives and pump control.
Partnering with an experienced robotic integrator that utilizes high-performance robots and leading-edge peripherals enables manufacturers to navigate the robotic automation journey.
USC Viterbi researchers are developing new ways to observe the changes in the properties of nano-scale particle-like objects that can be used to make next-generation computers.
For machine control and other applications, controlling motor speed with variable frequency drives can save energy, but it’s not as easy as just adding a VFD. What else needs to be considered for motor control system efficiency?
How digital transformation and automation help manufacturing and industry was the focus of the 2023 Manufacturing in America event, in Detroit; the opening session included speakers from Siemens Digital Industries USA, State of Michigan, Automation Alley, Dasher Lawless design-construction-automation firm, and Infinite Acres, an automated vertical farming company.
While Industry 4.0 can potentially allow for the intelligent optimization of multi-pump systems, without an open control platform, operators may struggle to properly coordinate their devices.
