Collaborative automation has become a versatile,cost-effective, and user-friendly technology that allows businesses of almost any size (and any level of technical expertise) to increase productivity, improve quality, and respond more nimbly to changing customer demands.

Enabling Digital Transformation with IoT Performance and Properties Measurement

  • White Paper

Written for all IIoT stakeholders, the white paper explains why measuring the efficiency and efficacy of industrial digital transformation solutions across industries is essential.

Hybrid Heuristics for High Speed Route Optimization

  • White Paper

This paper discusses the challenges faced in route planning and how existing algorithms are largely insufficient. It also discusses how the use of a hybrid heuristic method derived from the combination of straight line heuristics and real road distance metrics presents the best solution to solving the challenge of planning efficient routes at high speed for last-mile deliveries today.

80 GHz radar vs. Ultrasonic Level Measurement Comparison

  • White Paper

When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

What is the Difference Between Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) and Pulsed Wave or Pulsed

  • White Paper

The two types of non-contact level radar, Pulse Level Radar and Frequency Module Continuous Wave (FMCW) Level Radar have been widely used throughout the process industry.

Improving the Efficiency and Reliability of Water Systems with Variable Speed Pumps and Pressure Sen

  • White Paper

Distributing water on a large scale has been a challenge that the world has tackled for decades. It is a particular challenge in high-rise buildings, and with a trend for designers to build up in urban areas, rather than out, it is a challenge that has become a new focus for design engineers.

How Robots Change The World: What automation really means for jobs and productivity

  • White Paper

The robotics revolution is rapidly accelerating, as fast-paced technological advances in automation, engineering, energy storage, artificial intelligence, and machine learning converge. The result will transform the capabilities of robots and their ability to take over tasks once carried out by humans.

Direct Drive Linear Motors: Overview and Selection Process

  • White Paper

To help make the process of selecting linear motors simpler, we’ll start by explaining the mechanics of a direct drive linear motor and contrast it with a more traditional indirect drive system.
