Machine vision is increasingly important for many applications, such as object classification. However, relying on conventional RGB imaging is sometimes insufficient - the input images are just too similar, regardless of algorithmic sophistication.
The new 36 sensor series from Leuze detects objects even at large operating ranges. Manufacturers and operators of highly automated systems benefit from the cost-optimized design of these sensors.
Combilift, based in Co. Monaghan – Ireland, is the largest global manufacturer of multi-directional forklifts and an innovator and leader in long-load handling solutions. Its recently launched Combi- CSS (Container Slip-Sheet) enables fast and efficient freight container loading for the transportation of timber, flat-packed furniture, panel products and similar goods.
In a joint project between Falken’s parent company Sumitomo Rubber Industries and Professor Hiroshi Tani of Kansai University, Japan, a new sensor to measure tyre wear has been developed which will help engineers to create longer lasting tyres.
Due to the industry standard 4.0, digitalization, automation and networking of systems and facilities are becoming the predominant topics in production and thus also in logistics. Industry 4.0 pursues the increasing opti...
MKS Instruments, Inc., a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir F150(200)A-CM-16 thermal sensor, a state-of-the-art device for measuring high repetition rate lasers with very short pulses in the nano, pico, and femto second ranges.
TU Delft scientists have engineered one of the most precise microchip sensors in the world. The device can work at room temperature—a “holy grail” for sensing and quantum technologies.
Endress+Hauser and the Petroleum Extension (PETEX®), a unit of the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, announce collaboration efforts for training courses starting fall of 2021.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic and the decline in plant and mechanical engineering, 2020 was a successful business year for Leuze.
