In many traditionally grown production networks, the focus is on free data exchange across all components and systems. However, if all paths are open, viruses and malware can spread unhindered in the entire network. To prevent this, it is recommended to segment the production network into manageable logical units – for example with the industrial firewall mbNETFIX from MB connect line.

Spectrophotometry, which examines the light spectrum emitted or absorbed by materials and analyzes their composition, is used in a wide variety of fields including food, agriculture and medicine. Up until now, spectrophotometry was typically performed in a chemical laboratory using large benchtop spectrometers. This SMD series spectrometer is expected to be used in hand-held instruments with limitations to their size or weight, simultaneous multipoint measurements, and other applications.

Since 1979 it has been blaz­ing a trail through woods and fields, mud, gravel and snow: the Mer­cedes G-Class. To make this fea­si­ble, the man­u­fac­turer uses par­tic­u­larly sta­ble lad­der frames. These frames are built at MAGNA Presstec in the Aus­trian town of Le­bring near Graz. Since 2017, pro­duc­tion of the facelift model has been run­ning fully au­to­mat­i­cally on a line from KUKA. Spe­cial­ists from the two com­pa­nies col­lab­o­rated closely to re­solve var­i­ous chal­lenges,...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer a purely academic topic, but is already being used in many practical ways, for example in face recognition, robotics, analytics, health care or smart city applications. Scientific progress requires accelerating machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL). With the SHARK A.I. series, BRESSNER now has high performance GPU servers in their portfolio that have been specifically developed for such requirements.

The trend towards digitalisation in industry requires new solutions, this also applies for components that were previously purely electromechanical in nature. Because without a powerful, comprehensive infrastructure, digitalisation hits its limits fast. The infrastructure includes plug-in connectors and cables whose significance is set to rise and for example will be reflected in intelligent plug-in connectors. Weidmüller is presenting a demonstrator for an intelligent connector for the first...
