ABB lancia il suo modello più piccolo di robot industriale in una variante più veloce

Compatta, agile e leggera, la variante a sei assi dell'IRB 120T tiene fede alle peculiarità del marchio offrendo però un incremento notevole della velocità massima degli assi 4, 5 e 6, che permette di ridurre i tempi di ciclo fino al 25%.
Commentando la nuova variante IRB 120T, Nicolas De Keijser, Product Manager dell'area Small Robots di ABB ha affermato: “Durante la riuscita attività di diffusione su vasta scala dei robot IRB 120 standard in tutto il mondo, abbiamo rilevato la necessità da parte delle aziende di poter disporre di robot più veloci per le applicazioni di prelievo e deposito, soprattutto nei settori food & beverage e dell'imballaggio. Il robot si preannuncia vantaggioso anche per le applicazioni di montaggio nelle industrie di produzione dei componenti elettrici ed elettronici per il settore automotive”.
Questo robot agile e ultraveloce rappresenta lo standard di riferimento nel settore in fatto di precisione, con una ripetibilità inarrivabile di 0,01 mm. Inoltre si può montare con qualsiasi angolazione, all'interno di un'isola di produzione, su una macchina o vicino ad altri robot della linea di produzione.
Il robot è equipaggiato di serie con l'unità di comando IRC5 Compact di ABB, che offre tutti i vantaggi dei controller per robot leader a livello mondiale, tra cui eccellente controllo del percorso di movimentazione, sistema intuitivo di programmazione FlexPendant, programmazione offline RobotStudio, linguaggio RAPID flessibile e potenti funzioni di comunicazione.
De Keijser ha inoltre aggiunto: “La richiesta continua di incrementare i volumi di produzione dei beni di largo consumo impone l'utilizzo di apparecchiature all'avanguardia ed efficienti. Con lo sviluppo dell'IRB 120T abbiamo voluto venire incontro alle necessità del settore con una soluzione economica e affidabile per aumentare la produttività a fronte di un investimento minimo”.

Desigo V5: Innovations from Siemens increase building efficiency
The Siemens Building Technologies Division has introduced version 5 of its Desigo building automation system. Its innovative products such as Total Room Automation as well as efficiency features, like RoomOptiControl and Eco Monitoring, give building operators and users an active role in energy management, leading to permanent reductions in energy and maintenance costs.
A state-of-the-art building automation system is always optimized for energy-efficient operation. However, these optimized settings may start to drift over time. One of the underlying causes is often a lack of transparency for users who simply don't know how the setpoint changes they make can impact energy consumption. This is particularly true for air-conditioned rooms which are also equipped with lighting and sun protection controls. The new version of Desigo keeps room users and building operators apprised of the building's efficiency status. Feedback to users is given using the innovative Green Leaf display, adapted to the expertise and control options of each user group. The system makes it possible to change settings if needed to restore optimal energy efficiency. A study by Technische Universität München (TUM) indicates that by actively involving operators and users in the energy management of a building, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 25% without affecting comfort.
Total Room Automation offers energy savings without reducing comfort
The open, programmable room automation range Desigo Total Room Automation (TRA) is a holistic solution encompassing the HVAC, lighting and shading disciplines. Desigo TRA uses an innovative efficience feature called RoomOptiControl. It automatically detects unnecessary energy consumption in the room and notifies users by changing the color of the Green Leaf icon on the QMX3 room control unit: If room operations are energy efficient, this icon is green. If settings made by a room user lead to unnecessary energy consumption, the icon turns red. To reset room control to energy efficient operation, the user simply presses the display and the Green Leaf icon returns to green.
Using BACnet/IP, PXC3 room automation stations—also part of the TRA package—are integrated seamlessly into the PX automation level with its primary systems (heating generators, HVAC main units and cooling generators). The primary systems are controlled directly through the demand signals from the rooms. This means that the primary systems are only turned on if needed and their operation is adjusted so it meets the room requirements without exceeding them. One room automation station can cover multiple rooms. TRA offers complete integration of KNX, DALI and EnOcean devices; existing or new sensors and actuators from Siemens can be incorporated as well.
Eco Monitoring to reduce energy consumption and wear
Eco Monitoring is another innovative efficiency feature of Desigo. It monitors ongoing operations of HVAC systems based on energy-related quality condition indicators such as readings from temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, runtime, switching behavior and operational performance of the systems. Should deviations from the target state, inefficient operations or increased energy consumption occur, the building operator is notified via the Green Leaf display on the Desigo Insight management station. Current and future international standards (such as EN 15323:2007) require such a feature in order to optimize building operations over the long term.
Desigo Eco Monitoring not only helps optimize energy consumption, it also reduces wear. Thanks to its dynamic behavior and timely reporting, the Eco Monitoring feature recognizes unfavorable system operations early on, allowing operators to intervene immediately before any negative impact occurs. If desired, operators can choose to be notified of unusual events via text messaging (SMS), fax or e-mail.
Expanded networking of the automation level
Starting with version 5, Desigo also offers expanded end-to-end networking of the automation level. Enhanced support for communications standards ensures efficient system integration. The PXC series of compact automation stations has a higher number of universal inputs/outputs, which makes them much more flexible. To protect existing investments, different device generations, such as PTM and TX I/O modules and RXC room controllers, can be used in parallel on the same PX automation station.
