Industrial food cutting becomes a piece of cake

Industrial food cutting becomes a piece of cake
Mitsubishi Electric has assisted Western Mechanical Handling (WMH) to develop a fully automated inline cell for cutting and slicing food of any size and shape on the fly. The solution is based on Mitsubishi Electric’s MELSEC Q series high-performance PLC, plus system-matched components including HMI, variable speed drives and two MELFA articulated arm robots. The resulting machine maximises performance, flexibility and productivity for customers in the food sector.

AI improves maintenance management for robots

AI improves maintenance management for robots
As Industry 4.0 turns into a reality, businesses that are introducing more robots into the production environment will be able to benefit from increasingly efficient maintenance regimes. As with any asset, these critical machines will run at peak efficiency when operators have access to predictive maintenance tools. The latest predictive analytics solution supplied with Mitsubishi Electric industrial robots uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a key feature for optimisation.

Performance inverters for high power applications

Performance inverters for high power applications
It has been announced that Mitsubishi Electric has extended its inverter portfolio with a 690V version of its FR-A800 series inverters. The new models of the FR-A870 690V line cover power outputs up to 1.5MW. Yet this increased power is delivered in a slim package that starts at just 380mm wide, offering significant space saving potential.

HMI for extreme environments with extended temperature range

HMI for extreme environments with extended temperature range
With an extended operating temperature range of -20 to +65°C, and protection ratings to IP67F/IP66F, the GOT2507T-WTSD seven inch operator terminal from Mitsubishi Electric meets the needs of harsh and demanding applications. No additional protective measures are required for washdown with high pressure water or use in power equipment that is typically located outdoors.

Automation plays a blinder for craft brewers

Automation plays a blinder for craft brewers
The perfect beer is a harmonious blend of art and science. Automation can help by performing the measured and repetitive tasks while allowing brewers to focus on more creative, interesting and rewarding aspects. So when Sadler’s Ales, a historic Black Country brewery, started to grow its business, it decided to adopt an automated process control solution from Mitsubishi Electric to improve productivity and make the quality of its craft beers more consistent.

The robot arms that are getting everywhere

The robot arms that are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of improving production processes and keen to integrate robots, so the decision as to whether one is used or not boils down to economics; operators want to see a good case made for the return on investment before giving the green light.

It's likely in the future you will be talking to robots

It's likely in the future you will be talking to robots
Automation has always lent itself to the manufacture of mass produced disposable medical devices and the bulk processing of samples - for two main reasons; initially for speed and repeatability, and then because human presence poses one of the biggest contamination risks in a clean production or processing environment.

Industrial robots use the cloud to access Artificial Intelligence

Industrial robots use the cloud to access Artificial Intelligence
Through its new cloud-based solution for pro-active maintenance based on the AI platform within IBM Watson Mitsubishi enables smart analysis of operational data to predict and highlight future maintenance requirements. The theory is that sometimes service schedule requirements for robots are inadvertently missed which, despite the extended duty-cycles and the general reliability of modern robots, is not a healthy situation for continuous plant operation.

Six-axis robot turns 3D printing into an art form

Six-axis robot turns 3D printing into an art form
A project at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) based at the University of the West of England, (UWE) Bristol UK is looking at 3D printing from a totally different angle - where the emphasis is placed on meaningful expression, rather than the accurate reproduction of digital data. A flexible Mitsubishi Electric MELFA RV-Series articulated arm industrial robot is at the centre of the project.
