Supply chains are fraught with risk, from natural disasters to other risks that have even higher probability of occurrence and potentially equal or greater impacts.
Like PC computing in the 80s, Internet computing in the 90s and mobile computing in the early 2000s, the Internet of Things will be the driving factor behind semiconductor solution development in this decade.
Medical represents a potentially high-growth market for industrial PCs, but will it bring the growth that industrial PC vendors are seeking?
The next wave of wearable computers will use increasingly efficient, low power displays, stretchable electronics and even energy harvesting to extend battery life as more functionality is incorporated into any given device.
The world market for programmable logic controllers was severely challenged in 2012 as it went through its first downturn since 2009. As a result, most major markets contracted. So where will the growth come from?
How confident are solar PV companies that their systems will last for 25 years? And how realistic are the assumptions they use to make that claim?
Facing uncertainty over future energy-efficiency regulations, pump suppliers must strike a balance between touting energy efficiency and providing cost-effective solutions
Formed in 2000, the National Nanotechnology Initiative has five goals to transition the semiconductor industry to next-generation nanoelectronics. At stake is the competitiveness of the U.S. semiconductor industry.
As more industrial equipment is shipped with networking capabilities industrial OEMs must decide which technology to adopt: fieldbus or Ethernet. And what about adding wireless on factory floor?
How can the global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry reverse its long-term decline in margins without raising prices? The answer may be as simple as dropping the “E” from the EMS moniker.
Electric motors account for nearly 50 percent of our global energy consumption so designing more energy-efficient motors is or paramount importance. There are three paths developers are taking..
A few years ago, 3-D TV came onto the market with the promise of transforming how people watch TV. It didn’t deliver. Will 4K TV meet the same fate?
After seeing labor rates in China le rise to more than $34 per hour, “re-shoring” or “on-shoring” some production “back home” has been receiving quite a bit of news coverage. But is it warranted?
More than 2,000 top-tier suppliers of advanced packaging equipment, materials, containers, automation technologies and other supply chain innovators will exhibit at PACK EXPO Las Vegas.
As an exhibitor, METTLER TOLEDO will present drum filling systems and industrial weighing solutions.
Filling systems enable accurate control and measurement of liquid materials in an industrial environment. Whether automatic, semi-automatic or manual, the system is designed to provide an increased level of automation during the filling process. METTLER TOLEDO drum fillers provide efficient, precise, and repeatable results.
Industrial weighing solutions include the ACT350 Weight Transmitter and the SWB805 MultiMount™. The ACT350 is specifically designed for fast, accurate weight measurements from analog load cells, weigh modules, bench and floor platforms to PLCs via most common fieldbus networks, including EtherNet IP, Profinet® IO and Profibus® DP. The ACT350 provides an exceptional 600 Hertz fully filtered update rate to a PLC, making it an ideal choice for fast filling and sorting applications. The small DIN-rail housing saves valuable cabinet space, while keys and display also allow setup and control at the unit.
The SWB805 is a fully approved hygienic weigh module for food, pharmaceutical, and other applications where adherence to the most stringent hygienic standards are required. It is designed in accordance with EHEDG guidelines and the entire module is NSF approved. The design is optimized for avoiding contamination and meets compliance in harsh environments. All surfaces are self-draining for fast drying after wash-down. Mirror polished surfaces on the module hardware and load cell as well as avoidance of metal-to-metal contact on all points of the weigh module help prevent the entrapment and growth of bacteria. The SWB805 can even be equipped with an optional stabilizer insert for scales subject to high shear or heavy vibration without affecting hygienic functions or certification.
