The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a term used to describe interconnectivity in relation to factory automation. The term captures the complex interrelationship of smart hardware feeding actionable data over a network, in order to drive deep learning systems toward optimized factory output.
Despite the mountains of paperwork and sophisticated systems, occasionally a glitch makes all of that effort appear to have been a waste. It happens to the best of us with the only winners being therapists and system developers claiming to have the answers that will save us from a repeat in the future.
Evaluating the physical properties of electronic devices and parts.
May 1, 2019
Whether you are working on an unmanned aerial vehicle or drone, a car, or an entirely new way to get around, such as a hoverboard, testing is a must. (Yes, hoverboards need testing too.) Physical evaluation testing is required in an increasing number of industries, including electronics.
The new 4200 Series Cable Testers are the latest easy-to-use testers from Cirris Systems. Available in two configurations, the high voltage 4250 tester and the low voltage 4200 tester, these systems have the same quality expected in all Cirris products.
Though buzzier than ever in 2019, 3D printing has existed for at least 35 years, beginning with the invention of stereolithography in 1984 and accelerating with the development of fused deposition modeling in 1988. More recently, however, additive manufacturing for series production, paired with an uptick in lower-cost metal 3D printers, has elevated the industrial 3D printing industry to previously unreachable heights.
The Automate Show brought thousands of robots to Chicago this week. The robots were serving ice cream and beer, playing music, and in one case, boxing. They were wowing attendees with their speed and service, musical skills (the KUKA ones wore bows for their performance), and fight demos. Machine vision and image analysis was also on display.
