News: Exciting changes in the industry

mitsubishi0819The Mitsubishi Electric Corporation invests in Akribis Systems Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based manufacturer of linear motors and linear stages. With the integration of its servo systems and other industrial automation products into the Akribis product range, Mitsubishi Electric is supporting the increasing demands for high-precision, high-precision manufacturing.

Typical applications are in products that use new technologies such as 5G to meet demand from the IoT business.

Due to the miniaturization and high functionality of smartphones as well as the accelerated introduction of electric vehicles, linear motors and linear stages are increasingly in demand. With your help, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, flat panel displays, lithium-ion batteries, etc. can increase productivity and precision. That's why Mitsubishi Electric servo systems are used around the world because of their consistent product lines in these areas.

With the participation in Akribis, which has a high share in the world market for linear servomotors and linear stages, the automation company also wants the further development of "eF @ ctory"Accelerate and strengthen its entire industrial automation solutions. This can be achieved by combining their own servo and automation systems with the wide range of products and the flexible customization options offered by Akribis.

More news from Mitsubishi Electric

  • Technical article Mitsubishi Electric presents its smallest and most powerful compact PLC so far. The Melsec FX5UC series has an extremely compact size. It helps mechanical engineering companies to place extended functionality in a minimal space. The programmable logic controller also offers web access and network connections for the latest smart factory applications.
  • Companies whose goal is to connect the operational technology (OT) of their production environment to their IT systems have a new option from Mitsubishi Electric: The edge computing solution "Melpic" - opens up optimization potential through preventive condition monitoring (predictive maintenance) ) or quality assurance with data evaluation in real time and immediate feedback to the operator.
  • The new "Melfa" articulated arm and "Scara" robots from the RV-FR and RH-FR series from Mitsubishi Electric are now supported by a force-torque sensor that can be integrated directly into the CR750 / 751 and CR800 robot controls. Because the Force Sensor does not need its own control, the processes are simplified considerably and engineering effort is saved.
  • SPS Hall 7, Stand 391 Mitsubishi Electric presents itself as "Your solution partner for smart manufacturing". At the booth, the company shows its latest range of automation products and technologies that give users a competitive advantage.
  • Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV has founded the "High Precision Positioning Systems" division based in the German branch in Ratingen. The new business area offers German and European customers key technologies to accelerate the introduction of centimeter-accurate autonomous driving and safe driving support.
  • EMO Hall 9, Stand D40 and Hall 13, Stand B92 Mitsubishi Electric shows how machine tools in networked production systems, with intelligent controls, edge computing and partner solutions increase productivity. The connection of robots to machine tools to increase speed and productivity is facilitated by plug-and-play integration.
  • Jan-Philipp Liersch has been Marketing Manager of the Industrial Automation division at Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV since July 1, 2019.He is now Head of Product Management and is therefore responsible for Mitsubishi Electric's automation products and solutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Benelux.
  • Mitsubishi Electric Corporation invests in Akribis Systems Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based manufacturer of linear motors and linear tables. With the integration of its servo systems and other industrial automation products into the Akribis product range, Mitsubishi Electric supports the increasing requirements for highly specific and high-precision production.
  • Technical article Mitsubishi Electrics Information Technology R&D Center in Japan has developed a new sensor technology that enables high-precision detection of vehicle parameters even in heavy fog or heavy rain. The technology is intended to enable the autonomous and assisted driving systems to function robustly even in harsh weather conditions, under which the detection accuracy of conventional sensors decreases.
  • Specialist articles In Reutlingen, a network of competencies from companies in the region has implemented a training facility for trainees and schoolchildren in the metal, electrical and IT departments, which brings the essential features of Industry 4.0 to life. The system consists of two Mitsubishi Electric industrial robots with different kinematics.
  • Mitsubishi Electric's "Melfa" articulated arm robots are used for a wide range of handling tasks. At the factory, they are also suitable for hazardous areas. That is why the articulated arm robots are now available with the corresponding individual certification. Because no technical modifications are required for the proof of conformity, the robots can also be delivered without major delays.
  • Cover story The Martinshof, workshop for people with disabilities, prefers to work with manual workplaces, as they are perfect for integrating people with physical or cognitive disabilities into working life. The Japanese "Poka-Yoke" principle and the Guided Operator Solutions (guided manufacturing solutions) from Mitsubishi Electric ensure the high quality.
