Hexagon presents complete solution for laser scanning on the machine tool

Published

New on-machine tool laser scanning measurement solution enhances productivity and data capture.

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division is bringing laser scanning with metrology levels of precision to machine tool measurement with its new LS-C-5.8 system.

Ideal for measuring freeform or large surfaces, the LS-C-5.8 integrates with machine tools to create point cloud images of a part’s entire surface. Dedicated software presents the data in an easy-to-understand format, making it simple to quickly identify fluctuations in quality and correctly align a part for reworking while it is still clamped to the machine tool.

Andreas Hieble, Product Manager Metrology Solutions for Hexagon’s machine tool measurement product line says: “We’ve drawn on our expertise in developing market-leading laser scanners for coordinate measuring machines and portable measuring arms to meet manufacturers’ growing demand for a new, productivity-enhancing approach to machine tool measurement. Today, users typically have to create and analyse many single points when measuring with a machine tool. The LS-C-5.8 laser scanner solution transforms the process by automatically capturing thousands of points per second and rapidly delivering rich data in an easy-to-read form.” 

The LS-C-5.8 is a fixed blue line sensor that delivers precise results whether measuring shiny or very dark surfaces across a huge variety of applications and surface types. It combines a compact design with a large field-of-view so that it can be used to create point clouds on small machines and in environments where part accessibility is limited. And its software enables the comparison of the real-life part with designs in the CAD model.

The LS-C-5.8’s software is compatible with controls from Siemens, Fanuc and Heidenhain. It is designed to marry high performance with ease-of-use and its features include the display of colour-mapped point clouds. It is able to use data to align the part on the machine (Best-Fit) and can export files in an STL format. As a result, the data it captures can be ready in real time on the shop floor, enabling manufacturers to quickly identify and address production issues.

By

Interroll reports a large order received from a leading e-commerce platform in North America. The order includes the supply of vertical crossbelt sorter systems for 12 locations and amounts to a double-digit million US dollar volume.
The sorter systems will be installed at both new and existing end user facilities throughout the United States.

Increased consumer demand via e-commerce combined with the rising urgent need to comply with social distancing requirements during the COVID-19 outbreak created the need to expand the customer’s existing distribution infrastructure rapidly. Interroll’s simplified mechanical crossbelt platform sorter design enabled the end user and system integrators involved to plan with a six-month lead time. Interroll received orders for 12 sites with one system per site, amounting in total to a double-digit million US dollar volume.

“The Interroll vertical crossbelt sorter has been selected for its exceptional performance and proven success with large-scale projects in the American courier, express, and parcel market,” says Richard Keely, Executive Vice President Americas and member of the Interroll Group Management. “Moreover, the small footprint, throughput of 8,000 per hour through each single induction, as well as handling a wide variety of items have been decisive factors in being awarded this great opportunity.”

Innovative Push Pull Standard for M12 connectors – across manufacturers Milestone for automation technology

Published

on

By

Eight well-known manufacturers established on the market for M12 connectors ­Phoenix Contact, HARTING, Molex, Murrelektronik, Binder, CONEC, ESCHA and Weidmüller – have come together to establish a standard for the push-pull locking mechanism of M12 connectors on the market. Together, we are pursuing the one goal of ensuring compatibility across manufacturers.

This joint approach resulted in the IEC 61076-2-010; a standard that describes both external and internal locking by utilizing push-pull locking.

Whether locked internally or externally, with the new standardized PushPull locking system, M12 round connectors can now be quickly connected across markets.

The vote on the CDV was approved with an outstanding 92.9% in favor. This indicates that a final form of the IEC mentioned can be expected in December 2020. With this standard, a milestone for automation technology has been achieved – both the saving of installation time and thus costs as well as a safe, robust and widely available locking system can be realized.

HARTING T1 Industrial SPE Interface takes the German Innovation Award 2020

Published

on

By

The HARTING T1 Industrial Interface for Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) has been awarded the German Innovation Award 2020, marking the second consecutive year that HARTING has won the coveted award. After the German Innovation Award 2019 went to the HARTING ix Industrial interface for miniaturized Ethernet solutions, HARTING T1 Industrial has now emerged as this year’s winner.

For the team that committed a lot of dedicated work to the introduction of the Single Pair Ethernet interface as a standard mating face according to IEC 63171-6, the award is both a sound confirmation of their efforts and powerful motivation for future projects. In introducing the new solution for single pair Ethernet, the focus was clearly on not only developing a product, but ultimately on successfully integrating the entire concept and product successful into international standardization and establish it on the markets.

“Fielding the T1 Industrial interface, we are bringing SPE technology a major step closer to customers. The award is a clear incentive to continue to drive this development forward, to expand the solution portfolio and to continue to develop new, customized IIoT solutions for our customers in the future,” as Ralf Klein, Managing Director of HARTING Electronics emphasized.

The HARTING Technology Group recognized the potentials of SPE at an early stage and developed an optimal infrastructure solution for all users relying on I4.0 and IIoT. In order to establish a uniform standard for industry with SPE, HARTING played an active, pioneering role in the development of standards and has standardized the interface according to IEC 63171-6, as well as having this standard referenced in the international cabling standards ISO/IEC 11801 and TIA TR 42.7. For 75 years, innovation has featured as the core business of the Technology Group – and the German Innovation Award impressively underlines this fact once again.
