Maintenance of critical machines depends on the diagnostic electrical testing of installed 3-phase squirrel cage motors, interpretation of results and key points of physical inspection
Product safety and operational safety of elevators require that software and software-updates are under control. See list of standards to help lower risk for motion control applications.
Automation innovation has opportunities to help with COVID-19 pandemic response, energy efficiency, robotics, non-contact motion control using superconductivity, training and by creating increased interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Kit-based absolute encoders (position sensors) can make stepper motors a lower-cost option to servo motors for many industrial machinery motion control applications.
Siemens Large Drive Applications delivered a drive train, which includes artificial intelligence and machine learning to Deer Park Refinery located in Houston, Tex., one of the nation's largest refineries.
Duke University researchers have developed an approach to designing motion plans for multiple robots grows "trees" in the search space to solve complex problems in a fraction of the time.
PDS IG Equipment doubles window film throughput compared to the industry standard by using EtherCAT and PC-based control.
With more advanced predictive maintenance tools at their disposal, today’s maintenance and operations teams can improve efficiencies and minimize unplanned downtime.
Integrated automation and motion controls help to suspend, move heavy garden ‘clouds’ as part of Chicago museum exhibit using a wireless pendant. Fiber-optic, water and power cables used are typically for heavy duty indoor applications and in high bay warehouses, packaging machines and indoor cranes.
North Carolina State University researchers have developed a type of soft robot capable of moving more quickly on solid surfaces or in the water, which was inspired by how cheetahs move.
