UKIVA announces new machine vision conference The UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) has developed a brand new event for the imaging industry in the UK.

T

he first ever UKIVA Machine Vision Conference & Exhibition will take place at ArenaMK in Milton Keynes on 27 April 2017. With 50 technical vision seminars planned and 30 live demonstration stands, this new one-day event will enable visitors to see and hear about real world examples of how machine vision delivers value and creates competitive advantage, learn about what’s coming next in terms of cutting edge research and gain valuable insight into the latest trends. PPMA Group Head of Marketing, Valerio Del Vecchio, said: “This free-to-attend Conference has been constructed to provide something for everyone, whether they are completely new to vision or experienced vision engineers. We already have 30 speakers confirmed and with 8 separate presentation theatres we are offering a rich program of the latest developments, technologies and applications as well as machine vision basics. Visitors can therefore tailor their day according to their particular interests and level of knowledge. This varied and interesting content, combined with plenty of opportunities to network with some of the leading exponents of machine vision technology, makes the MVC a ‘must attend’ event for anyone with an interest in vision.” Visitors can register to attend the event at the brand new website (www.machinevisionconference.co.uk). This also has profiles of the speakers, details of the Conference program and information about the companies who will be exhibiting alongside the Conference. The presentation theatres will cover vision basics; 3D vision; software; optics, illumination & lasers; camera technology and embedded vision. Two ‘system and solutions’ themed theatres will highlight areas where machine vision has become indispensable such as label inspection, direct part marking, metrology and robotics while also considering some of the newer challenges such as serialisation and Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things. “Although this is a UK based event, we are delighted to have received significant interest from Europe as well”, continued Del Vecchio. “We are also pleased with the level of support we have received for the Exhibition that will run alongside the Conference. We already have signed up 30 of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of vision technology as well systems integrators to exhibit at the event.”

Cable Management and Protection is Key to Reliability and Productivity Cable management and protection within industrial applications covers many different facets ranging from the humble cable tie, through to sophisticated cable entry products, drag chain systems and conduits that can withstand the extremes of temperatures. These products and systems often play a key role in ensuring the highest levels of reliability and productivity in machines and automated manufacturing systems. This can only be achieved however if consideration is given to specifying high quality and appropriate products at the design stage. In this article, Martin Buttkereit of Cheshire based M. Buttkereit Limited, offers advice on how to avoid potential problems, by thinking carefully about the specific application requirements when selecting cable management and protection products

For engineers and designers working on new machine concepts, cable handling and management is just one aspect that needs to be considered. On occasions, what may seem one of the more straightforward parts of the project can actually turn out to be the difference between success and failure. Carefully planned routing, management and protection of cables within industrial control systems and machines, will play a key role in achieving the reliability and high uptimes demanded in manufacturing environments today. One of the main influences that affects cabling within industrial systems is the working environment. Cables may need protection against multiple factors including heat, liquids, swarf and abrasion. For cable routing into control cabinets, a careful review of the IP rating required will avoid unnecessary downtime resulting from ingress during use. Another consideration here is whether pre-terminated cables will be used, and selecting a cable entry system which uses split frames and inserts will allow these cables to be safely routed without having to remove and re-assemble connectors. This also has the additional benefit of maintaining the original cable warranty and significantly reducing the time required for maintenance or exchanging cables in-situ.

For applications where movement is required, retaining or enclosing the cables within a suitable drag chain will eliminate stresses on the cables, whist providing a physical barrier from adverse influences. With these systems available in plastic or metal and open or closed configurations, there is a solution for every application, including very large or long travel applications. In instances where hot swarf or chips are present, an enclosed steel cable chain will provide the ultimate protection and deliver long service life. Cable conduits are available in a multitude of different configurations and offer excellent protection in many different applications and environments. Available in metal or plastic they are food safe, liquid tight, resistant to solvents and UV light and can even be supplied coated with silicone for added protection. The wide temperature range that this type of product can withstand, -60OC to + 300OC, and IP ratings up to IP69 K available, mean that cables will have the highest levels of protection even in some of the most hostile environments. These products are also suitable for use in medical or clinical environments, meeting the strict hygiene requirements and can be easily sterilised. It is also important to make sure that the less complex products such as those used to provide strain relief or EMC protection are not overlooked.

Integrating these products during the panel build stage will be simpler and less time consuming that realising that they are required once the panel is complete and perhaps even on site and in production. It is also important that any cable clamps and trunking used is of a standard that will not jeopardise operational performance or safety. The maximum service temperature of trunking should be checked and it is also essential that it has past glow fire testing and does not propagate flame. For cable clamps, they should all be short circuit tested, capable of operating in a wide temperature range, typically from -40OC to +1,200OC, and also capable of accommodating individual cable loads, typically 600amp. Within today’s state of the art machines and systems cables transmit power, control signals and data. It is essential therefore that the products used to locate, guide and protect them are capable of meeting the demands of modern manufacturing. Martin Buttkereit will be happy to provide advice on product specifications and selection for specific applications.
