Mobile automation module is next step

Now available with a mobile automation module, the Xpert 40 press brake is a compact solution for automated and manual bending, says Bystronic. In production, the form, size,

and number of parts that are to be bent varies. A central goal is to produce these parts as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. The technology behind the

Mobile Bending Cell is the Xpert 40, together with bending robotics, combining fast press brake and mobile automation. Users can process large series with the automatic bending mode, and also manually bend small series and individual parts whenever necessary. The compact Xpert 40 can be

Consultancy is proficient for production

Specialists at ByteSnap Design can help shorten time-to-market, accelerating both hardware and software embedded systems projects. Visitors will see the new version of

the user interface (UI) development framework, SnapUI, now supporting Raspberry Pi, taking software to production. When designing new hardware

devices, keeping the UI design in step with hardware development can be difficult. SnapUI enables development of

the user interface independently of the hardware, on a reference hardware platform or Raspberry Pi, ready for deployment to the target device when the hardware is ready. It brings high performance to UI prototyping, with the emphasis on CPU embedded chipsets. The small, focused SnapUI

codebase and ease of integration

of new features makes adoption of the framework painless for software engineers, says the company, enabling them to extend built-in custom graphical objects easily. Changes to the UI can be implemented rapidly and simply by changing the XML description of the interface, significantly reducing the time required to deploy new versions of the UI or to change branding or multi-language translations compared to traditional UI development methods.

iron boron and samarium cobalt). Engineers work closely with

customers to identify the best magnet solution. Expertise and technology such as 3D finite element analysis (FEA) analysis software, provide technical support. The company has applied

magnetic principles to solve common problems, including the magnetic sheet fanner and magnetic sweeper.

Get your hands on an AC/DC power source

Described as a breakthrough in AC/DC power source technology, Caltest Instruments gives customers the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the new Pacific Power AFX. It delivers 15kVA from just a 4U 19inch rack mount chassis. At 51kg it is the highest AC power density available today, says the company. The power source offers a single 300V AC or 425V DC range, operating on a constant power curve. This provides more current at low voltages and eliminates the traditional dual voltage ranges.
