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.

Mitsubishi brought it all to the 2017 SPS Drives show

Mitsubishi brought it all to the 2017 SPS Drives show
Mitsubishi Electric had a very busy show at this year’s SPS Drives showcasing a range of new products and solutions from collaborative robots, to modular linear transfer systems and smart carriages, especially as the company was like many, concentrating on the big focus of the show Industry 4.0 and digitalisation. Anna Flockett, Engineering Specifier editor attended the Mitsubishi press breakfast at the SPS show, where the first innovation that was easily noticed was the demonstration of production in an Industry 4.0 environment which included a new collaborative robot, working together with an operator without safety barriers.

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.

Addressing the need for fast control of machine tools

Addressing the need for fast control of machine tools
How important is the need for fast, precise and affordable control of machine tools for complex machining applications with a new range of CNC systems? Mitsubishi Electric is addressing this with the the M800 and M80 controllers, which offer superior functionality and intuitive usability. Enabling users to boost productivity in application areas such as automotive manufacturing, medical component machining and other sectors requiring a combination of high throughput and reliability.

Automation platforms deliver productivity in food production

Automation platforms deliver productivity in food production
  For food and beverage manufacturers there are many benefits in rationalising their automation vendors. Using a single source of supply for automation components can play a big role in improving flexibility and reducing downtime. However, as Jeremy Shinton, Mitsubishi Electric explained, an automation system can be much more than just the sum of its parts.
