IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

IDS NXT Ocean – Grab, Label, Train, Run AI

Artificial intelligence opens up new fields of application for camera technology and image processing. It can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). 

To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications.

Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Engineer’s Tips for Application of Variable Force Springs and Variable Torque Spring

Variable force spring and variable torque spring are very similar with constant force spring and constant torque spring. But we diversify the radian by winding the steel strip into a coil. Therefore, it can unfold negative gradient, positive gradient compounded in a spring. Here are some relations between load (force or torque) and stroke that can be used on specific occasion.

Pen Type Drug Injector Application

The spring exerts constant force to keep the drug flow fixed, preventing the patient from feeling uncomfortable when applying it. It features stretch force in end...
