On transfer machines, it is generally sufficient to monitor just the load (power) of the spindle motors.
Innovative new application software enables users of high throughput, multi-process CNC machine tools to implement process monitoring without incurring any additional hardware costs. The software is likely to be of especial interest to users of high-end production systems such as transfer machines, where even relatively small operating issues can rapidly escalate into much larger, more […]

How fast is the global technological frontier moving? Some argue that it is moving very fast and accelerating. Certainly, in some fields, like artificial intelligence, the evidence points in that direction.
Productivity Commission Chair, Murray Sherwin, CNZM We’ve been asked at the Productivity Commission to explore the impact of technological change on the future of work. This month we released New Zealand, technology and productivity – the first of four reports on the topic. We’ve been assigned the task because Ministers are genuinely troubled about the […]

As the Asia Pacific region, and indeed the rest of the world, gears up for the 5G era, its benefits will not be restricted to just telecommunications.
More than one million people have subscribed to a 5G mobile contract in South Korea, meaning demand for the high-speed technology has easily outpaced the country’s adoption of 4G. The need for speed isn’t just essential for rapid telecommunication — we’d all rather communicate using faster and more reliable methods. 5G has created quite the […]
