Delcam will demonstrate potential applications in the woodworking industry for machining with robots on Stand C09 in Hall 12 at the LIGNA exhibition to be held in Hannover from 11–15 May. Live machining demonstrations will be shown on the stand using a KUKA robot programmed with the new release of Delcam’s PowerMILL Robot software for the programming of robots for multi-axis machining operations.
The latest release of Delcam CRISPIN’s ShoeMaker CAD software for the design of all types of footwear includes special editing tools to adapt an existing sole to a new upper design.
Planview will be hosting a presentation and panel discussion at the Ovum Industry Congress on 12–13 May in the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel in London on the benefits of continuous and adaptive planning.
Amplicon has partnered with high-tech manufacturer Belden. This new partnership will give Amplicon customers access to the full Belden range, which includes hundreds of connectivity and networking products targeted at a variety of markets.
Delcam is set to demonstrate the latest developments in its PowerMILL programming software for five-axis and high-speed machining at the CIMT exhibition to be held in Beijing from 22–25 April.

The Scorpion Color Identification Vision App is used to identify the colour of any object or area. It has a simple operator screen, and is claimed to be easy to configure.
Selecting new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a huge undertaking for a business. It’s expensive and creates the need for some organisational change. Employees have to be trained on an unfamiliar technology and some business processes have to be adapted. It’s a bewildering project that requires attention to many details. Therefore, it’s best to have a plan to help you organise your requirements and to skilfully manage all the information that is available on ERP systems ...
There are a host of possible explanations that might help explain seemingly contradictory study results, according to Minitab. Perhaps the studies utilised different designs, different statistical methodologies, different survey techniques, different confounding variables, different clinical endpoints or different populations. Or perhaps there’s something even more fundamental at play. The proverbial elephant in the room of any statistical analysis. The essential, pivotal question upon ...
Nowadays, it is important to optimise the efficiency of power transformers to make sure minimum losses are generated from the various physical phenomena. Finite element studies allow the transformer designers to accurately analyse the different losses to enhance the performance of their transformers. A few steady-state and transient tests allow the user to determine the electrical and mechanical constraints that the power transformer will have to endure in its life.
This white paper from Amplicon discusses standards-based approaches to redundancy and fault tolerance using industrial Ethernet local-area networks (LANs). The paper is targeted at network engineers in factories, transportation systems, utilities and other industrial networking applications.
This article from CEDRAT is focused on the static and dynamic eccentricity fault in the induction motor. The quantities considered are: torque, leakage flux and magnetic forces measured outside the machine (such as accelerometer sensor). For each quantity, CEDRAT compares its signature in degraded mode with the healthy mode. The company devotes a short paragraph of this article to demonstrating the new feature of Flux concerning double FFT; this feature is available in the dedicated ...
