The acquisition enables Hitachi to provide one-stop and speedy robotic systems integration using unique, advanced technology for an entire automated line in the fields of logistics and Factory Automation.
Renewable energy must provide high-quality power if it is to become a suitable alternative to fossil-fuel sources. A smooth and ideally seamless transition from fossils to renewables, transparent to end-users is needed. Both types must be able to coexist.
To support their goal of manufacturing quality parts, Toyota Industries Corporation and Siemens have cooperated to develop artificial intelligence (AI) that can predict product abnormalities in aluminum die casting, a key process in automotive air conditioning compressor production.
The University of Birmingham has purchased a laboratory-scale Rare Earth Roll Separator for their School of Metallurgy and Minerals lithium-ion battery recycling research facility. The high-intensity magnetic separator enables the separation of very weakly magnetic particles.
Applications based on innovative AI technology are becoming increasingly popular and finding their way into numerous industrial areas. With the AI platform NRU-120S and integrated Jetson AGX Xavier module from Nvidia, the German distributor Acceed offers a cost-efficient solution for future AI edge computing applications.
Thomson Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of linear motion control solutions, has announced the availability of a 48-volt option for its Electrak HD electric actuator. The added voltage capacity designed into this actuator provides motion control designers with new flexibility in integrating heavy duty actuators with onboard electronic systems that draw less current.
