Sieb & Meyer launches

Sieb & Meyer launches new control system CNC 95.00 Lueneburg based company Sieb & Meyer has successfully introduced the new control generation CNC 95.00. The hardware and software system provided by the company consists of CNC controller as well as servo amplifiers and frequency converters for HS manufacturing spindles. All components are optimally adapted to each other. This makes performance improvements in terms of productivity and accuracy possible. The completely redesigned user interface reduces the potential for errors and is optimized for a quick and easy setup. In order to comply with requirements of Industry 4.0, the control system uses a communication protocol based on MQTT. Additional protocols, such as OPC UA, SECS/ GEM or Restful API, are available via micro services. The new system sets standards regarding usability, performance and connectivity, confirming the company’s market leadership in the field of CNC control systems for mechanical drilling and routing of PCBs including user interface, CNC motion controller, frequency converters, servo amplifiers and suitable IO terminals. PRODUCTS Low maintenance bevel and worm gears from Norelem New worm drives from the company Norelem are now available in 1 size with a centre distance of 20 mm and seven different ratio’s ranging from 13:1 to 65:1. For bevel gears, customers can choose from seven different sizes with shaft lengths ranging from 32 to 60 mm. Due to a special encapsulated aluminium housing, the new mitre gears are low maintenance. This housing reliably prevents lubricants leaking out and dirt getting in, which has a positive effect on the service life. The worm drives are universally applicable. The left-hand worm wheel is made from a special brass and the worm screw from case-hardened steel. This material combination ensures a light running power transmission and high efficiency. The maximum axial and radial loads lay between 200 and 500 N. Output torques of up to 15 Nm are possible and the drive speed can be up to 1 000 rpm. Bevel gears are surface hardened and fitted with ball bearing mounted shafts, and can be mounted in any position using simple screw fasteners. MTS launches its new series of smart and intelligent sensors MTS Sensors, a division of Nasdaq listed MTS Systems Corporation has released the fifth generation of Temposonics R-Series sensor. The company has added new features and tools to the new sensors that make them suitable for Industry 4.0 applications. The new sensors are supported by the TempoLink smart assistant which sends detailed information about the condition of the application, such as sensor status, internal temperature, total operating hours, distance traveled by position magnets and more. It is currently available in two types: rod style and profile style, and has Profinet and EtherNet/IP outputs. The R-Series V is more compact, robust and reliable and supports the operating temperature range from - 40 up to + 85 °C. In addition to this, the resistance to shock has been increased to 150 g and for vibration to 30 g. In connection with the larger voltage supply range, the sensors are now easier to integrate into harsher and rougher applications and still provide exact measurement data up to 0.5 µm. The new generation is completely backward compatible due to its proven electrical and mechanical connections and designs. 36 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES 7/2018

Universally applicable linear function modules from Bosch Rexroth The new FMB and FMS function modules for handling, in-feed and out-feed tasks as well as general automation, complement Bosch Rexroth’s tried and tested portfolio of linear modules. With a belt drive or Rexroth ball screw assembly, they fulfill the requirements for dynamics and accuracy of up to 80 % of all applications. The dimensions of the ready-to-install modules correspond to common market dimensions with standard load ratings. They are also based on the dimensions of other Rexroth linear modules for high-precision applications. The function modules with belt drive cover strokes up to a maximum of 3 800 mm and the ball screw drive versions up to 1 500 mm. The strokes can be selected with millimeter precision as they are not restricted by modular dimensions. FMB and FMS are available either as purely mechanical assemblies or with motor and drive control units as complete axes. The frequency converters and servo drives can be integrated into all common automation structures via a multi-ethernet interface. The function modules are initially being offered in two sizes; 80 and 110. Emerson acquires Aventics for € 527 million Emerson, the American multinational corporation that manufactures wide range of products from electric motors to industrial automation technologies, has now expanded its reach in the fluid control and pneumatic space with the acquisition of Aventics. The German company, Aventics has been a global leader in the pneumatics sector especially in the machine and factory automation applications. Aventics has also been at the forefront in terms of R&D, innovation and adapting to Industry 4.0 technologies. Emerson’s acquisition of Aventics significantly expands the company’s reach in the fluid automation market and Emerson’s presence in Europe. Aventics is a strong complement to Emerson’s capabilities and creates one of the largest portfolios of fluid control and pneumatic devices that sensing and monitoring capabilities to improve system uptime and performance, enhance safety and optimize energy usage. Hydraulic sector embraces Industry 4.0 technologies Just like any other sector of the industry, Industry 4.0 has touched hydraulics sector as well. Components even as ordinary as the hydraulic tank are now being equipped with sensors. Hydraulics expert Argo-Hytos, has developed hydraulic tanks equipped with sensors, which demonstrates how easily sensors for oil condition monitoring can be integrated into the product. 3 proven screw-in and immersion sensors were used: a level and temperature sensor, a wear sensor (OPComFerroS) and an oil condition sensor (Lubcos H2O+). The system showcases sensor data fusion, which means intelligent interaction of multiple sensors and not just forwarding data from the sensors to controller level. The focus is on merging data from different sensors to increase detection performance or to better classify data. Due to utilization of 3 sensors in the tank that monitor the most diverse characteristics such as temperature, wear (detection of ferromagnetic particles) and oil humidity, the user can observe and evaluate the oil condition holistically - with all “sensor senses”.
