Plug and Play robots for machine tools increase competitiveness

Plug and Play robots for machine tools increase competitiveness
Faster time to market and increased production flexibility can be achieved using Mitsubishi Electric’s M8 Series CNC controllers with Direct Robot Control (DRC) functionality. Both the large touchscreen M800 and the M80 models offer DRC as standard. It allows machine tool operators to program and use robots quickly, direct from the CNC panel without specialist robot programming expertise.

BT launches counter drone solution to protect from rogue drones

BT launches counter drone solution to protect from rogue drones
BT today announced the launch of a new counter drone solution that will help organisations to protect themselves from threats to privacy, security and safety by intruding drones. The new counter drone solution, provided by BT’s Enterprise unit, will give organisations the capability to detect, track and identify drones which breach airspace and site limits, helping security staff respond to threats quickly and pro-actively. Where lawful, the drone detection service can also extend to provide safe and effective countermeasures once a drone threat has been detected.
