Increasing the quality, efficiency and productivity of wood pellet production with Optidrive
A manufacturer of wood pellets and briquettes used for domestic and commercial fuel was finding constant inconsistencies in the quality of its products during production due to the manual process involved. Greece-based Nizamis S.A. wanted to automate production to ensure consistency, while also reducing costs through improved quality and energy efficiencies.
Rick Bestwick – part of the Magnavale Group – has recently installed three blast freezers from Blue Cube Portable Cold Stores at its state-of-the-art Warrington and Scunthorpe facilities. Representing an order of nine blast freezers in total, the contract packer and cold storage specialist chose the high performance 28-pallet 62kW and 115kW units for their energy saving, cost and efficiency benefits.
Quality check at high speed thanks to high-performance camera technology
Whether sauces, snacks or ready meals have to be filled and packaged, high throughput and quick format changes matter in the packaging systems and food industry - And to the highest standards of quality and hygiene, too. For this purpose, the sensors used have to be able to do one thing above all: meet high demands for power, flexibility and hygiene all at the same time. To do this, the packaging machine experts from SN Maschinenbau have rethought the entire concept of a bag-filling system used at notable companies in the food industry, tackled this subject innovatively and have opted for the smart camera technology from Leuze electronic for verifying codes and expiration dates.
Bauer gear motors make a splash at US theme park
Boat rides are a perennial attraction at theme parks around the world. The formula is simple, but effective: passengers start their experience dry, and a relatively sedate pace. By the end of the ride, they have been soaked by spray, thrilled by rapids and – usually – terrified by a seemingly impossible plunge.
Editor's Comment
Sensor data available globally – beyond the local company cloud
Making sensor data and information from different sources available globally and linking this data and information in a meaningful way – this is the crux of Industry 4.0. New business ideas make it necessary to make this information globally available and accessible not only within a company but also beyond the boundaries of the company and its location.
