End your year on a high with DPA's last issue of 2022!

30 December 2022

Now available both in print and online, DPA’s December issue covers the key topics of Drives & Motion Control, Enclosures & Panel Products, Bearings, Belts & Chains, and a special Medical & Pharmaceutical supplement.

On 17 November, UK Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced the Autumn Budget, outlining the Government’s plans to tackle the energy crisis, boost innovation, and ensure business survival. As another year ends, I take a look at the impact this will have on the manufacturing industry in the new year (pg. 4).

Meanwhile, the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that, by 2025, we will generate 175 zettabytes of data annually. Increased heat densities of IT equipment in high-performance data centres continue to drive the need for more efficient and effective cooling technologies. In this month’s cover story, Foremost Electronics outlines the benefits of taking a modular approach to high-efficiency hybrid rack cooling (pg. 6).

Finally, for our special ‘Medical & Pharmaceutical’ supplement, we explore the challenges faced by drones in healthcare (p. 24), how to select the best pinch valve for your medical application (pg. 22), and how secure access management increases productivity and reduces costs (pg. 26). 

Other key features to look out for include:

• There’s a storm coming: Navigating the climate change challenge (pg. 8)
• Fibox is making a positive impact on global EV mobility (pg. 10)
• Video of the Month: FAQs about enclosures (pg. 37)
• Are you ready for new Ecodesign measures? (pg. 34)
• Meet the demands of today’s landing gear technology (pg. 20)
