Product News Control & Automation Increased capacity palletising robots New RGC and RGS proportional controller series won’t leave you in the cold Capable of operating 2050 cycles per hour with a 130kg payload is the claim of Kawasaki Robotics for its new CP range of palletising robots. Three new models make up the CP range, offering maximum payloads of 180, Carlo Gavazzi has introduced the compact and easy to install RGC1P and RGS1P series of single-phase proportional controllers to its popular solid 300 and 500kg. state relay range for power control applications. High throughput, a wide working range and ease of programming In many applications, are attributes that position the the output signal range competitively in the market. from measuring and By reducing robot weight by up to monitoring devices is 38% over the range it replaces, and an 3/3 analogue signal that SHRINK PACK ELEVATOR METTLER TOLEDO Introduces New KUKAfor LBR IIWA ROBOT OPTIMIZES enhancing the drive mechanism needs to be converted the arm’s rotation (joint 1), payload Checkout Scale SMT LINES FOR THE ELECTRONICS intoLAYOUT a digital ISSUES signal toRESOLVED capacities have been increased in line switch a ‘standard’ INDUSTRY A fast-growing METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to introduce solid state relay. beer This bottler was faced with a with overall performance. the Ariva-H, its newest advancement in canreal bechallenge costly, when uses conducting a complete Two applications illustrate ways of additional space inofthe modernisation their filling and packaging weighing at the checkout.
