Multi-Rib Belt

The PolyVee belt driven roller and RollerDrive from Interroll (Wilmington, NC) provides reliable torque transmission up to 300 percent higher than traditional O-rings. Unlike other multi-rib belts, the PolyVee belt features a flexible core that allows it to be applied without any tensioning device. In addition, the PolyVee belt accepts center-to-center distance tolerances, without impairing performance, and quickly and accurately controls the starting and stopping of boxes on a conveyor.

iMonitor 2.0

Aegis Software, Horsham, PA, has introduced iMonitor 2.0 software that enables manufacturers to create real-time dashboards to monitor their enterprise, factory, and processes through Web browsers. It provides interactive production tracking, materials, utilization, alarm, line condition, tooling life, and quality dashboards, which are constructed by dragging and dropping gauges, charts, and other elements into a design view, along with user-provided graphics such as line pictures or plant drawings. The software operates like a Web site — users link gauges or charts in one dashboard to another, creating a dashboard site structure. Users can create unlimited numbers of dashboards and store them for viewing on the Web. For Free Info .

Vision System

Cognex (Natick, MA) introduces five new models of the In-Sight Micro vision system, including a two-megapixel model, in packages that measure just 30mm × 30mm × 60mm. The vision system has EasyBuilderTM configuration software and a Vision-ViewTM operator interface display. The In-Sight Micro is ideal for mounting in very tight spaces on robots, production lines, and machinery. The system has flexible mounting capability with a non-linear calibration tool that enables mounting at angles of up to 45-degrees for hard-to-reach applications.
