Wireless Data Setting for Electric Cylinders

February 1, 2018

Set operating conditions with wireless connection

IAI TB3 teachingNow the ELECylinders position adjustments and operating conditions can be set by the TB-03 teaching pendant from outside the equipment, even without a cable connection.
The TB-03 can monitor the operating status of up to 16 axes while receiving wireless data from the ELECylinder. Error recovery time can also be shortened by troubleshooting with wireless connection.
The ELECylinder electric actuators replace air cylinders. With multi-positioning it can start and stop smoothly at high velocity, reducing cycle times.

Dorner SmartPace Dynamic Pacing Conveyors

December 3, 2014

Smartpace imageThe SmartPace conveyor enhances packaged product orientation by receiving items and properly spacing them on the conveyor.

The conveyor uses HMI interface to control the spacing, speed and orientation of products. This gives users is the ability to merge multiple lanes together without product stops or gates – the entire process is smooth and seamless. A Photoeye detects randomly spaced parts enter the conveyor. The conveyor’s servo motor control automatically varies the conveyor speed and conveyor junction placement to generate an evenly spaced part.
