Motion control for 3D laser mapping application: Mclennan size and supply single axis motion system for large scale LiDAR mapping and data acquisition systems
3D Laser Mapping Ltd is a high technology design, manufacturing and consulting company, based in Nottingham-UK. Its LiDAR scanning hardware and data analysis systems are used for mapping large structures - capturing, processing and providing three dimensional information for surveying tasks such as buildings, road networks and railways as well as creating digital terrain and elevation models of specific landscapes. Amongst a comprehensive range of products and systems targeting these quite diverse areas, 3D Laser Mapping’s PROCESSMONITOR LIVE software and 3DLM-SR-50 laser scanner package is aimed at dimensional modelling in particularly harsh environments such as underground construction projects, bridge and structural repairs and sprayed concrete measurement. To ensure the angular positioning precision and optimum reliability required for the laser scanner hardware, 3D Laser Mapping has chosen Mclennan as a supply and support partner for a Modbus over Ethernet-enabled intelligent microstepping drive and planetary gear unit with absolute encoder feedback.

Service robots at a low price thanks to the new low-cost robotic joint from igus
With the introduction of a new low-cost robotic concept from igus, simple tasks can now be automated easily with a relatively quick ROI. Under the name ReBeL, the new wave-driven joint differs fundamentally from the previous robolink models: Instead of stepper motors, brushless DC (BLDC) motors are used and, thanks to maintenance-free injection moulded parts, the new ReBeL series is a cost effective option for robot builders.

Decentralised EtherCAT motion system offers machine cost and build time benefits
Heason Technology - the designer, manufacturer and distributor of world-class motion solutions - is a long-term support and supply partner for motion control components specified by Bradford on Avon based AB Dynamics. Recently, for a next-generation SPMM, Heason supplied AKD-N series EtherCAT-enabled decentralised servo drives from its distribution partner Kollmorgen that has drastically reduced control cabinet hardware, cabling, and build time and cost, whilst facilitating unrivalled measurement accuracy and improved performance.

Smart Manufacturing is Gathering Steam. Are You Ready?
Advances in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are transforming the industrial automation world in a big way. Significant increases in data collection and big data analytics are happening at the edge—whether on the factory floor or more remote sites—often far away from data centers and specialised IT staff. With real-time feedback, local operators can make small adjustments to help production lines run faster and more efficiently and prevent failures.
