The A3200 motion and machine control platform combines 1 to 32 axes of Firewire-distributed motion control with HMI, PLC and vision control modules. It is available with the Nmark galvo control package for vector and graphics-based laser marking applications. Two versions are available: the Nmark VCT suits vector laser-marking applications where lines, arcs and circles define the marking path. It suits laser marking, cutting, welding, sealing and ablation applications. The second version, the graphic Nmark GRC is available for raster-scan based marking for applications such as barcoding, engraving, serialisation, and character scribing. Both versions are supported by a range of complementary A3200 software. This enables complete control of multi-axis laser machining applications including marking on-the-fly for continuous web processes and Z-focus height control for 3D processing. The products use the industry standard XY2-100 serial protocol to communicate with galvo scanning heads from a wide range of manufacturers.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
