Today’s inverter drives are smarter than ever, able to look after themselves and a range of connected plant equipment such as fans, pumps, motors and conveyors. How then is this achieved?
Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and their smaller cousins Automated Guided Carts (AGCs) promise to free more production environments from the slavery of fixed lines, conveyors and linear processes and make workflows more flexible.
There has been an evident increase in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-related technologies across all industries. This emerging technology has altered the way in which industries tackle work execution processes and therefore in turn altering the way that safety is managed.
Autonomous robots fitted with tiny chemical sensors that listen to the ‘sounds’ coming off gases will instantly detect gas leaks in petrochemical plants and pipelines to dramatically improve disaster responses.
The autonomous robot contributes to the continuous improvement of work safety in Vrchlabí and helps to minimise work risks. It recognises people crossing its path as well as other vehicles and stationary obstacles.
Large global companies demand RFID-based solutions that can be provided by a single source worldwide, across multiple manufacturing or supplier sites. Conversely, there is a multitude of smaller companies that have not adopted RFID due to the complexities of dealing with numerous technology partners.
Robots are becoming increasingly independent and are able to tackle more complex tasks. Laser profile sensors play a crucial role in ensuring that robots move safely, as well as precisely guiding and locating their positions.
By adding air quality sensors to smart building systems, engineers can implement early warning of the buildup of hazardous gases and chemicals, but commercial air quality sensors lack the integrated capabilities required to join a smart building network.
Ashwoods Electric Motors is a developer and manufacturer of advanced and innovative electric motors, produced on a large scale. In 2017, Ashwoods increased its workforce twofold and secured new premises with a new testing facility, equipped with multiple dynamometers where the motors are tested according to heavy-duty pre-set cycles, which are used for validation and performance testing.
