 Case Studies  
 
How AUMA actuators helped protect groundwater on Swedish railways
AUMA electric actuators are helping to cut the risk of water pollution at Hallsberg junction, the largest railway yard in Scandinavia, by automating three underground sluice gates. The installation would have been difficult or impossible without AUMA’s modular actuator strategy. AUMA supplied three SA 10.2 multi-turn actuators with GST 10.1 spur gearboxes and AC 01.2 controls with Modbus interfaces to Trafikverket, the Swedish transport authority.

Installation of motorized VERLINDE EUROSTYLE VFM jib crane and grab transforms recycling process for manufacture of corrugated board at SICAL paper mill.
Paper and board manufacturer, SICAL, specialized in the production of corrugated board derived from diverse recycled materials collected from used paper recovery networks. Material for processing is delivered in the form of heterogeneous bales that have to be opened and depolluted - meaning that the diverse non-recyclable materials such as plastic or metal they contain must be extracted. The main challenge for the transformation of SICAL's production process was focused on its capacity to reprocess heavily pollluted waste, particularly category 3 waste (recyclable household packaging) while ensuring operator safety. The installation of a Verlinde jib crane fitted with an electric hoist and grab was found to be the solution to this challenge.

Military can bridge skills shortage
In the UK, there is currently a shortfall of 20,000 engineers each year. Brexit is expected to see this figure increase and, to avoid hindering Britain’s industrial growth plans, the Government has pledged an investment of £500 million pounds into further education. Here, Matt Collins, business development manager at power distribution specialist ide Systems, explains how businesses can address the skills shortage.
