Digital condition monitoring of transport systems

Overhead conveyor systems are used in assembly production lines in the automotive and other industries. The failure of individual support frames can lead to the stoppage of entire production lines. A condition monitoring system based on the MICA Edge computer detects wear at an early stage and thus prevents unplanned downtime. Overhead conveyor systems in Read more about Digital condition monitoring of transport systems[…]

Han-Modular® Flexbox: Modular connectors for energy chains

The flexible and reliable supply for fast, linearly moving components of machines and systems is made possible by the Han-Modular® Flexbox – a novel interface in the modular plastic housing system from HARTING. Longer, moving cable runs for machines and machine modules are easier to install and maintain. The Han-Modular® Flexbox makes it possible to Read more about Han-Modular® Flexbox: Modular connectors for energy chains[…]

Han® ES Press HMC: Rapid termination technique for frequent insertion and removal

One of the core requirements of flexible production is the ability to quickly install machines and modules, reconfigure them at will and operate them without disruption. With its Han® ES Press HMC series, HARTING has developed suitable interfaces that can be installed quickly without tools and are extremely robust – meaning they can handle at Read more about Han® ES Press HMC: Rapid termination technique for frequent insertion and removal[…]
