Technical Innovation of the Year


Awarded for the most innovative motion control product, system or service (new or redeveloped) with effectiveness being demonstrated via application details.


SMC Pneumatics: EX600W Integrated Wireless Valve System


The EX600W was developed to eliminate the need of a communications cable in a multi axis robot or multi axis pick and place cabling system. Power and air can be supplied very robustly in a robot through the robot arm but work fatigue of an industrial communication cable is a recognised issue. By adopting the wireless system customers benefit from reduced installation time and eliminate costly production downtime.
