Mitsubishi Electric, one of the leading innovative brands of the world, met with factory automation sector representatives at the seminar organized in Gaziantep. In the event, the e-F@ctory concept of Mitsubishi Electric as a response to Industry 4.0 and advanced robotics technology and the automation works of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) projects were explained. New generation products and solutions including Panolu Inverter Solution Platform, which collects automation systems under a single roof, were introduced.

Mitsubishi Electric, one of the leading brands in the field of electricity, electronics and automation organized a special event for the representatives of the factory automation sector in Gaziantep Divan Hotel. The brand, which operates in a wide variety of fields in the world and provides added value to the factory for rapid integration, productivity, flexibility and efficiency, introduced its innovative technologies to its sector representatives compatible with Industry 4.0. Information about Panolu Inverter Solution Platform and Compressor solutions were given at the seminar where e-F@ctory which is Mitsubishi Electric's response to Industry 4.0 concept, advanced robot technologies, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) were explained.

Opportunity to shape investment with e-F@ctory

In the event, which brought representatives of the sector together in Gaziantep, information about e-F@ctory concept which is the response to Mitsubishi Electric's Industry 4.0. The digital factory concept e-F@ctory, which has emerged as an integrated solution for establishing reliable and flexible production systems, offers tremendous cost savings while increasing speed, quality and productivity in production. With this concept, Mitsubishi Electric is able to set up industrial plants to meet all the needs of Industry 4.0. Before the factory investment, it provides an opportunity to construct a virtual factory and realize the simulation of the factory and production, evaluate the efficiency and shape the investment in the direction of the outputs. Mitsubishi Electric has been using the e-F@ctory concept on its production lines since 2003 and reflects its experience on its products and customers.

"Sensorless Collision Control" prevents damages

One of the highlights of the seminar was Mitsubishi Electric's advanced robot technology. The robot control unit of Mitsubishi Electric, acting with the awareness that the speed and convenience provided by the robots will play a greater role in the industry day by day; enables the flexibility of motion control, the speed, accuracy and precision of the system. In addition, with the flexing functions, the robot arm acts as a kind of spring and is stretched according to the force. For advanced applications, Mitsubishi Electric's robots can be easily integrated with conveyor (conveyor belt) and product monitoring, force control and visibility features. The "Sensorless Collision Control" feature allows the robot to detect any obstacle in manual or automatic mode and prevent collision damage.

It can mimic human arm movements

The RV-F series of Mitsubishi Electric's dynamic 6-axis robot is able to mimic human arm movements and boost productivity using very high speed systems with its 0.32 second cycle times. The dual-arm structure of the 6-axis industrial robot, which can easily handle flexible figures with its dynamic structure, does not only provide added value in terms of freedom of movement, but also offers more stability and versatility. For the RV-F series, it is not difficult to work in very tight spaces, and it is no problem to mount robots on walls or ceilings. Mitsubishi Electric robots range from 504 to 2.050 millimeters depending on the model, with a carrying capacity of 2 to 70 kilograms.

Innovative automation system solutions are under one roof

Mitsubishi Electric, which provides high value added advanced technology automation solutions to Turkish industry, also introduced "Panel Inverter Solution Platform" which collects innovative automation system solutions under one roof. Outside the cabin platform produced in Turkey, it offers the possibility of commissioning in a short period of time to industrial facilities and infrastructure projects. "Panel Inverter Solution Platform" which enables the automation of many different processes such as fan, pump, compressor, air handling unit, mill, conveyor, crane, crusher, mixer and opening-winding applications much more practically and efficiently, with its parameters and programs, also removes the need for additional hardware. This platform has a substructure that can provide a complete solution including PLC control system solution, low harmonic solution, brake unit and brake resistance solution, panel cooling system solution as well as the panel inverter solution. In addition, due to its wide range of options and modular structure, it can be preferred either individually or in groups according to the needs of facilities and projects.
