Label sensor works with all material types

Lion Precision has used a different sensing technology in its new LRD8200 label sensor so that it can detect all label and liner materials and artwork

How to minimise the cost of microelectronic testing

'More than Moore' and 'more Moore' are today's buzzwords driving the microelectronic industry. Advances in process technology allow engineers to create circuits with growing complexity and offering increasing functionality on smaller surfaces. Hans Manhaeve reports

Sensor networking provides scope for intelligent control

Connecting sensors to a control system by means of a network offers significant time and cost savings over using traditional hard-wiring. Furthermore, as Alistair Rae reports, integrators and end uses can also benefit from a more intelligent control system and improved performance of the overall process
