New QuickPick® Light Pointer technology from Kardex Remstar will be on display at Promat 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL January 21 - 24 in booth #3623. The light pointer consists of an LED or laser light mounted to a slider that moves horizontally on a guiding system. Located above the access opening in a Shuttle VLM, it navigates the operator to the exact part to be picked increasing pick accuracy. In addition, a Megamat RS Vertical Carousel will be on display.
H2W introduces its most compact moving magnet actuator with a hole through the shaft. The voice coil actuator (NCM02-05-005-4JBH) can be operated under either open or closed loop position control and is ideal for controlled sinusoidal motion applications (1 to 1000 Hz for open loop applications and 1 to 125 Hz for closed loop applications). The NCM moving magnet type linear actuator has a precision ground 0.125” diameter shaft that is guided by jeweled sapphire bushings. The shaft has a...
The Megamat RS Vertical Carousel allows multiple departments or work zones to maximize material handling capabilities by consolidating all materials into one system using multiple pick windows. Consolidating inventory into one system with access on multiple floors or zones eliminates wasted time transporting and searching for material; increasing productivity, enhancing material flow, and reducing overall costs. Further, the ability to add an additional pick window post installation provides...
Handheld Code Reader with Mobile Computer: DataMan 9500 Series
Industry-leading DataMan® DPM (direct part mark) reading technology is now available on a mobile computer
The DataMan 9500 mobile computer was specifically designed for the rugged conditions of the factory floor yet is small and lightweight enough to fit comfortably in the hand with easy-to-use ergonomic controls.
*DataMan 9500 handheld code reader on a mobile computer
This industrial-grade mobile computer is ideal for reading DPM (direct part mark) codes in applications where operators need to read and view code data but cannot be stationed at a terminal or PC.

H2W introduces its highest force voice coil positioning stage to date. The voice coil positioning stage (P/N VCS12-2000-LB-01-C) is a closed loop system that can be used for high force positioning applications. The stage is driven by two NCC moving coil type linear actuators and is guided by parallel shafts and linear bushings. Each voice coil has an 1.20" [30.5 mm] stroke; generate 100 lbs [454 N] of continuous force and 300 lbs [1361 N] of peak force, or a combined 200 lbs [907 N]...

The wikipedia entry for "community banks" is four lines long. That's not saying much about one of the most important collections of businesses in our economy. Community bank is one of those phrases, like "all natural," that people use without really knowing what they mean or how others will interpret it. The term conjures up images of It's a Wonderful Life, and the First National Bank of ______ that regularly features in cartoon town squares
The 3RR22 current monitoring relays have been expanded by an IO-Link interface for the transfer of digital measured values to the control. The monitoring relays' autonomous function remains available, independently of the control.
• Monitoring for current exceedance and shortfall
• Monitoring for line breakage
• Monitoring for no-load operation and load shedding, in case of V-belt breakage or pump idling
• Monitoring for overload, e.g. caused by a polluted filter system in pump applications
• Monitoring for the functionality of electric loads such as heating
• Monitoring for incorrect phase sequence with mobile systems such as compressors or cranes
• Monitoring for incomplete ground faults, e.g. due to damaged insulation or humidity
Spooling (or winding) is the most effective way to provide convenient packaging for materials of exceptionally long length. Typically, material is fed from a large spool at a certain rate while a SmartMotor traverses the material back and forth to create the desired pattern.
For the "perfect spool", the winder traversing position should be electronically geared to the rotational velocity of the spool that the material's being wound onto. The SmartMotor uses a customizable electronic gearing dwell control to ensure the winding stays in the desired shape even as the diameter of the spool changes because of additional material wound onto the spool.
