Daily Industrial Automation News Rundown:

This Friday morning we cover new Products and Articles, plus a new Download and new Documents.

First up is an article from ABB about how a customer implemented their robots  to improve the manufacturing of spices for a Chinese Food and Condiment manufacturer, Teway Foods. To read the article and watch the video of the process, click here.

Next us is an article from Copia Automation about their latest release and newest features. If you don’t know, Copia has been on The Automation Podcast a couple of times (here and here) to discuss how their product brings GIT based source control to industrial automation. To learn more about Copia and their latest features, you’ll find their article here.

Also new for today is an article from the good folks over at The Association for Manufacturing Technology about building an advanced cybersecurity plan, including maintenance and incident response. It’s part of a ten part series, and you can find the article here.

So, what do you know about adaptive manufacturing? This is the question asked in the latest blog from the folks over at B&R. The article takes a look at who need to consider Adaptive manufacturing, and how it differs from Flexible manufacturing, and the full article can be found here.

Now, I’ll admit I’ve lost track of what’s new and happening with the folks over at PI (Profinet International,) which is why I was glad to see their latest blog covering their top five articles of 2022. The articles their followers read the most include topics I’m also very interested in, including Single Pair Ethernet, IO-Link Safety, and TSN. To see all their top articles, as well as new products of January 2023, click here (you can also learn about CAN FD here.)

Next is an article shared by Inductive about Sparkplug, and this leas to a website has a great primer on what Sparkplug is and how it relates to MQTT here.

From Sparkplug to EMI, our next story is from DigiKey and covers how to implement robust, miniature EMI Control for Automotive and Industrial Power Converters, which you read here.

As for new downloads, today we have new firmware available from Siemens for their ET 200SP IM 155-6 PN R1 here.

As far as literature, we have two new releases from Rockwell. First up is a guide to their NEMA Contactors and Starters which includes all of the specifications for these products, which you can find here.

And our final item today is a new Brochure for Rockwell’s FactoryTalk Edge here. While it looks interesting, I’m not sure if this product will find broad appeal – what do you think?
