Make invisible visible with XXL computed tomography

Computed tomography has long been limited to smaller and more easily penetrated objects due to the limited power of X-ray sources (450 keV beam energy). The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has now succeeded in removing these restrictions. With the development of a computer tomograph with a linear accelerator as X-ray source with 9 MeV and a correspondingly dimensioned X-ray camera, they have opened up completely new application areas for computed tomography.

Field report: Where the digital twin makes sense

Automatica Hall B6, Booth 303

The Digital twin is on everyone's lips. But in which areas does the use of simulations make sense and which advantages do you bring to the machine builder today? The automation expert Baumüller has been dealing with the topic of simulation for several years and has firmly established it in the engineering process. Machine builder Karl Mayer Textilmaschinen successfully implements simulations in the form of virtual commissioning.

Connect networks with up to 33 modules to PLC

With the "Backplane Ethernet Extension Protocol", Beep for short, simplified Turck the application of its multi-protocol block I / O modules TBEN and FEN20. Beep makes it possible to connect networks with up to 33 TBEN modules (1 Master, 32 Slaves) and up to 480 Byte data to the PLC via an IP address in Profinet, Ethernet / IP and Modbus TCP networks. By reducing IP addresses, users can quickly connect high-density I / O networks to cost-effective controllers.
