November 2012 Manufacturing AUTOMATION Lineup

Cover Story: Machine Safety Roundtable

  • We gather a handful of experts for our fourth annual machine safety roundtable to discuss the trends and challenges associated with machine safety — everything from standards and implementation issues to the importance of safety in a tight economy. The coverage will provide insight to machine builders, integrators and manufacturers looking to stay safe while maintaining productivity.

Feature: Communications & Networking

  • Object Oriented Programming (OOP), with its clear modular structure, is an exciting programming methodology emerging in the area of automation and controls. Many programmers, particularly those who are versed in the IEC 61131-3 standard, stand to gain numerous advantages by becoming more familiar with OOP. This article will help you do just that, as you get to know OOP.

Feature: Innovation through Automation – Robotics

  • Innovation is the norm at Harley, Ont.-based Titan Trailers. It's not just about innovation in the design of its lightweight and strong extruded-aluminum double-walled trailer panels that help optimize load capacity and fuel efficiency. The company also stresses innovation in manufacturing techniques – including a new arc-welding cell that has reduced the average cycle time to just 90 minutes.

Column: Machine safety

  • ISO standards for safety are complicated and changing – and this fall, committees are continuing work on standards such as ISO TC199. In this issue, Doug Nix from Compliance InSight Consulting gives us an inside look at the new standard and what it means for manufacturers.

Plus: A selection of the latest CAD/CAM, ERP and PLM software, communications and networking products, machine safety, motors and drives, material handling products, process control offerings, and robot technologies.
