Innovative robots that have no guards now work with Volkswagen employees
VW has for the first time set up industrial robots to operate together with human employees on a production line with no protection shield in-between the robot arm and the human employees.
Sick Sensors > Sicks new innovative blind spot free Tec4 safety light curtain.
Pure safety form the market leader
Compact design without blind zones
Quick installation with innovative brackets and standard connectors
I.P.67 with ambient operating temperatures down to -30 degrees C
Festo Valves > New addition to Festo CPX valve terminal range.
A new addition to the Festo range has been released recently. The innovative CPX extension system for Festos CPX automation platform.
This recent addition was optimized for cabinets as well as allowing technicians to separate CPX valve terminals straight into a couple of components therefore reducing expenses by up to thirty percent in comparison to existing alternatives.
Festo CPX extension enables consumers to integrate additional modules more cheaply, particularly when they are created for cabinet applications for example when they are used in the food and drink and process industries.
Before, customers had been restricted to 10 modules therefore in the event that more were needed, customers would be required to obtain another CPX with fieldbus node, put in a CPX vertically and use larger control cabinets.
Festo Drives > Festo DFPI Linear actuator with integrated positioner and displacement encoder.
Festo DFPI Linear actuator for actuating process valves such as gate valves and shut-off valves in process automation systems Linear actuator with integrated displacement encoder(potentiometer)
Festo actuator DFPI versions with integrated positioner and valve block available (DFPI-...-C1V-...).
With this product version, the integrated positioned checks the position of the piston rod within the available stroke range. This actuator has a factory-defined safety position that is assumed if the operating voltage or the analogue setpoint value fails.
Festo Valves > Festo DAPS actuators managing water on the South African Coast
A coastline in South Africa that has a water shortage is looking for a solution; the solution to this is simple improvements to their water treatment plant.
Here’s how droughts were avoided using Festo pneumatic products to improve their water supply issues. Using Festo DAP and DLP actuators linked to MLV valve terminals for pneumatic control.
