HMI Designed Specifically for Burning TablesApril 1, 2012
Walker Magnetics, Worcester, MA, a manufacturer of magnetic products for industrial applications, introduces a human machine interface (HMI) for burning-table applications with a touchscreen panel. The HMI mimics the most modern CNC control panels, say company officials, with multiple screens to provide operators with a clear visual of all system functions. Operators gain instant access to information, feedback and options.
Using the screen, the operator can easily choose which individual or group of lifting devices to use—magnets or vacuum pads. No more toggles or switches —one HMI screen can replace hundreds of wires needed for a conventional system.Walker Magnetics: 508/853-3232; www.walkermagnet.com
