Data exchange between electrical wiring and control software

Data exchange between electrical wiring and control software
The AutomationML interface within iQ Work has been implemented by Mitsubishi Electric, which is the integrated software suite for programming Mitsubishi Electric automation products. AutomationML represents an important step-change in the way complex equipment is designed, installed and maintained. Designers, integrators and end users will all benefit from a streamlined approach to system implementation that will drive down costs and shorten time to market.

Are we over-complicating a simple idea?

Are we over-complicating a simple idea?
With an increasing modularity in PLC components, it means that principle life has been getting easier for systems integrators of late, with the ability to implement complete automation systems on a single backplane. However, with a host of new PLC modules making it feasible to implement full control of a complete production line without ever leaving the PLC rack, are we at risk of over-complicating a simple idea? Barry Weller of Mitsubishi Electric argues that, actually, this is all for the better.

Automation platform supports the manufacturing digital transformation

Automation platform supports the manufacturing digital transformation
At this year’s SPS Drives show in Nuremberg, Mitsubishi Electric was highlighting the benefits of the PLC as a platform for automation, with a complete set of dedicated CPU modules for the MELSEC iQ-R Series PLC. A CNC CPU module and a robot control CPU now complement the existing options for analogue and digital I/O, motion, positioning, process control, safety and networking, delivering a solution that integrates the full suite of control and automation processes onto one common platform.

Six-axis robot turns 3D printing into an art form

Six-axis robot turns 3D printing into an art form
There is a current project underway at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) which is looking at 3D printing from a totally different angle - where the emphasis is placed on meaningful expression, rather than the accurate reproduction of digital data, and at the centre of the project lies a flexible Mitsubishi Electric MELFA RV-7FLM articulated arm industrial robot.

Packaging machines optimised for ease of integration

Packaging machines optimised for ease of integration
There are challenges facing today’s packaged goods manufacturers to reduce costs per package unit, on lines that need to be flexible and ready for the introduction of the latest packaging innovations. However, at the same time, production lines need to be more tightly integrated, with improved monitoring at a local IT level for both production and performance data.
