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[…]

SMT production line detects PCB using RFID

PCBs communicate with their SMT production line and contain all the relevant manufacturing data. This is made possible by the RFID-4-SMT auto-ID solution from HARTING. It cuts error rates, radically simplifies documentation requirements and forms the basis for automated PCB production in a batch size of 1. When the PCB is made, a small UHF Read more about SMT production line detects PCB using RFID[…]
