Customized automation solutions from visual process control to robotic parts handling: Automation of laser marking can help manage increasing marking requirements and save costs in the production process. Especially in the context of increasing traceability marking regulations, the direct part marking is on the rise. Therefore, FOBA, in cooperation with automation experts, offers technical solutions that make the marking process more efficient for industrial customers. How this is implemented differs individually.
Schmalz has the right handling solution for every sheet metal and is presenting it at the 15th Blechexpo in Stuttgart - in Hall 1 at Stand 1107. This includes new grippers and convenient vacuum lifters.

Tungaloy has expanded its ModuMini-Turn exchangeable-head modular turning tool system for Swiss machines. New cutting heads are now available for turning, grooving, and threading on Swiss machines with the feed along the Y axis, which can permanently eliminate chips associated machining challenges.
GE (NYSE: GE), Fraunhofer IGCV and voxeljet AG (NASDAQ: VJET) today announced a research partnership to develop the world’s largest 3D printer for offshore wind applications in order to streamline the production of key components of GE’s Haliade-X offshore wind turbine.
In this article we focus on two of those factors – chip shortages and freight costs – and we take a look at machinery production (traditionally a more volatile sector than industry production) where cautious capital investments in some segments have meant particularly slow recovery for some machinery manufacturers, whilst others are making good progress towards market normality.
