Nordson ASYMTEK Introduces Helios SD-960 Series

Nordson ASYMTEK introduced the Helios SD-960 Series automated dispensing system for medium and bulk volume deposits of single- (1K) and two-component (2K) materials in electronics manufacturing and printed circuit board assembly. The Helios system is designed to deposit volumes greater than 1cc, and line widths and dots that exceed 1mm, but it can deposit volumes down to 0.3cc and line widths as narrow as 0.3mm. The system supports abrasive thermal interface materials (TIM), silicones, epoxies, and grease for applications such as potting, sealing, gasketing, and structural adhesives.

The Helios system was made specifically to accommodate large parts and substrates. The frame is 200mm taller and the robotics 150mm higher for more overhead clearance than a standard dispensing platform. An optional bulk fluid hose enclosure can provide added vertical clearance for securely routing remote bulk-feed hoses and to accommodate larger valves and mixers. There are two conveyor options, standard chain or double-wide chain. A purge container holds volumes up to 2 liters.

The Helios system can be equipped with Nordson ASYMTEK dispense valves or Nordson 1k- or 2k-metering systems. When used with metering systems, the controls can be integrated so that the operator sees the metering system’s monitor from the same position as the machine control. This allows the operator to focus on the dispensing area during operation.

The Helios system comes with Nordson ASYMTEK’s Fluidmove software, providing dispense programming control in a familiar Windows environment. Closed-loop controls are designed to maintain control and accuracy of the dispensing process. An optional needle sensor is available to monitor the positioning of large needles that deliver bulk amounts and a laser height sensor automatically calibrates for substrate height. A camera system enables programming and fiducial recognition, and an optional large-capacity, integrated weight scale provides Mass Flow Calibration to ensure that dispense volumes remain within defined process limits through weight-controlled dispensing and automatic calibration.

The Helios system accommodates a variety of bulk fluid supply options. Various size reservoirs, fluid regulators, booster pumps, level sensors, and more can be selected to fit the specific fluid and application requirements.

Logic Supply Introduces CL200 Computer

Global computer hardware manufacturer Logic Supply has unveiled their CL200 computer, built to power innovation at the network’s edge. Surrounded by a cast aluminum enclosure, and configurable with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G connectivity, the CL200 has been engineered to bring reliability to the Internet of Things.

Both models in the CL200 Series are powered by an Intel Apollo Lake Celeron processor and measure 83 x 116 x 34 mm. The base model CL200, running on Linux Ubuntu 16.04, features 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of onboard storage. The CL210 steps up to 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and can be configured with Ubuntu or Windows 10 IoT. A built-in MicroSD card slot on both models enables additional removable storage.

I/O on the CL200 includes one mini DisplayPort capable of 1080p or 4K resolution, one Gigabit LAN port, and two USB 3.0. The CL210 features two mini DisplayPorts capable of dual 1080p or single 4K resolution, dual Gigabit LAN, two USB 3.0, and also adds a 3.5 mm audio jack. Both systems have an additional USB 2.0 port and RS-232 box header on the bottom, and are configurable with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and Logic Supply’s Extrovert 4G LTE capability.

The CL200 will make its debut at this year’s Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, NV, which begins on March 28th. In addition to IoT and digital media applications, the CL200 is suited for data acquisition, automation and network gateway installations.

The CL200 will be available in Spring 2018, but Logic Supply is currently engaging with customers interested in the CL200 on project requirements and timelines.

FANUC America has announced that its Robot LINKi Zero Down Time (ZDT) service is now available to all automotive and non-automotive manufacturers who purchase FANUC robots.

Launched in 2015 (in collaboration with Cisco), ZDT is a predictive analytic service that identifies potential failures so customers can schedule maintenance and repairs, avoiding unexpected breakdowns during production. ZDT received a General Motors Innovation Award in 2016.

Today, over 16,000 robots in the automotive industry are operating with ZDT.  Since its introduction, FANUC estimates that ZDT has saved customers over 1,300 hours of unexpected production interruptions, which equates to more than $40M.

ZDT is available for all FANUC R-30iB Plus robots as well as R-30iA and R-30iB robots with the latest software version. ZDT monitors the robot’s mechanical health, controller and process equipment controlled by the robot.  A ZDT Data Collector located inside a customer’s plant securely transfers messages from FANUC robots to FANUC’s ZDT Data Center in the cloud.  At that point, FANUC’s analytic programs review the data in the cloud for potential issues.  If there is an issue, ZDT automatically notifies FANUC’s service team and the customer with recommended actions to confirm and correct the issue.
