Software option integrates robots, PLCs
The MLX300 software option enables
operators to control and program
Yaskawa robots in a standard PLC
programming, eliminating the need
to learn a specific robot programming language. All program execution
is performed by the PLC; the motion
control is handled by the kinematic
algorithms of the robot controller. Supported PLCs are Com-pactLogix™, ControlLogix®, and GuardLogix®.
A comprehensive set of add-on instructions (AOIs) and HMI
screens that are specific to robot configuration and motion
control is included. AOIs are programming tools that control
the robot’s configuration, motion, and state of operation. Operator station HMI software is available for the Allen-Bradley
PanelView™ display, and pendant HMI software is available for
the Allen-Bradley MobileView™ and Pro-face GP4000.
Machine-mount mist collector
offers three-stage filtration
The Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division of Parker Hannifin Corp.
has launched the SmogHog® SHM Machine Mount (MM) media mist collector.
The unit is designed for direct-mounted
systems and collecting coolant mists
from processes such as CNC machining, cold forming, sawing, lathes, and
The mist collector is available in two
base models rated at 500 CFM and 800
CFM. Both models feature PEACH® sat-urated-depth coalescing media in a patent-pending filter design. This proprietary media uses a three-stage filtration
process that progressively reduces the
mist concentration, resulting in greater
than 99 percent particle removal efficiency, according to the manufacturer.
The 800-CFM unit is available with a
remote touchscreen controller and EC
