Electric Motors: The Power Behind Life and Business Often Taken for Granted

February 11, 2019

Topic: automation in manufacturing technology in manufacturing automation technologies manufacturing

As the world turns to electric power and away from engines, it turns more and more to motors of all sizes and power levels. Eventually, as the world moves away from using fossil fuels like gasoline, machine movement and power will increasingly be the byproduct of motors. Motors are already everywhere things move. They are often taken for granted when we see doors open, printers print, and gigantic structures delicately eased into place. Motors do not directly require fuel to operate. The electricity that drives them can be generated by any number of energy sources.


6 Tips For Designing And Building A Small Controls Project

February 4, 2019

Topic: automation in manufacturing technology in manufacturing automation technologies manufacturing

A small controls projects can be described as controlling from 1 to 3 motors and/or a small, automated number of processes, or one piece of machinery. These needs can be satisfied with a small-medium sized NEMA enclosure along with relays or a microcontroller with limited I/O to execute timing functions, a variable frequency drive (VFD), or contactors with overloads for motor control along with a simple operator interface that includes pushbuttons or switches - all located in a single remote control panel.


How Automation Technologies can Transform Manufacturing Companies

January 28, 2019

Topic: automation in manufacturing technology in manufacturing automation technologies manufacturing

In any revolution, consumers fall into several categories: innovators, early adopters, early majority, and so on. Most small to mid-sized companies cannot afford to be innovators or early adopters of others’ automated technologies, because the risks outweigh the potential gains. But when prices for innovations fall, and the early adopters have experienced the traps of beta-testing, small and mid-sized companies can gain a competitive edge by becoming part of the early majority. Automation technologies can transform your mid-sized company in four key areas.


What is the Difference Between SCADA and DCS Systems?

While SCADA Industrial Control Systems (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems) originally began as separate systems they have partially merged together as bandwidth has broadened, thus making localized decisions at every node unnecessary. SCADA, then, includes both “control” and “data acquisition,” while DCS includes only “control.”


How to Use Automation to Save Energy in Manufacturing

Over the years, ABB has established itself as a major player in the field of digitization in power and automation. It has now taken yet another step towards the integration of the manufacturing industry with virtual reality with its concept of the internet of things, services and people (IoSTP). The aim is to fully integrate human resources within the technological landscape of tomorrow's industries.


ABB’s Automation Builder is Being Used in Many Different Applications

April 11, 2017

Topic: automation in manufacturing automation technologies automated systems automation builder

ABB’s Automation Builder unifies the capabilities of all systems, based on ABB program logic controllers (PLCs), robotics, motion control, and other industry automation components, into a single development environment. This integration significantly reduces software complexity, and eliminates a multitude of interface issues, hugely decreasing the number of problems that are linked to data exchange between the controller and the varied types of automated devices. Production is considerably enhanced when all the tools needed for programming, configuring, debugging, and maintenance are presented on a single user-friendly interface. Two industry trends reflect how ABB’s Automation Builder can be used for a multitude of applications.

Topic: robots in manufacturing automation in manufacturing YuMi assembly lines industrial robot

Industrial robots used on assembly lines have seen continuous improvement in terms of ease of operation, versatility, programming simplicity and other factors. However, the one area where robots have continued to fall short is in their ability to work collaboratively alongside humans, taking into consideration safety constraints and being able to quickly learn from their human companions. With ABB's introduction of YuMi, that's about to change.
