Ford Dagenham has invested in seven UR10 Universal Robots from RARUK Automation to automate the previously manual task of applying fasteners to engine blocks. The fasteners are now applied automatically to engines that arrive on the production line every 30 seconds, across a 24-hour, three-shift operation.
16/09/2019 - New stoplog installation video released by ECS Engineering Services helps clients manage river control assets
ECS Engineering Services has released an informative video on how to safely install stoplogs into a watercourse, a key method for isolating water control equipment for installation and refurbishment work. The video is of particular relevance to those working on penstocks, radial weirs and sluice gates.
11/09/2019 - Specialised maintenance tools revolutionise wind turbine brake maintenance
Some large wind turbines feature a yaw brake. Heavy and difficult to maintain in the field, lifting and positioning brakes is a sizable challenge in confined spaces, but maintenance is critical to minimising operational downtime. Once working high up on a turbine or offshore, there is no going back; so industry service providers are now introducing innovative service tools to carry out yaw brake maintenance, with benefits to both service teams and turbine operators.
11/09/2019 - AstraZeneca saves time and space with Bürkert process controls
Creating a pharmaceutical manufacturing suite is a complex task that is governed by a host of standards and specifications. For the AstraZeneca manufacturing plant in North Ryde, Sydney, Australia, the decision to change its primary supplier of process control valves to Bürkert, reduced installation and commissioning costs while also improving process data availability.
Following a safety review, Tennants Fine Chemicals Ltd (TFC) has invested in a programme of continuous improvements at the company’s Staffordshire plant to ensure compliance with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) audit findings.
With a competent team comes an efficient process and a good health and safety record, so achieving maximum benefit from safe and efficient plant operation is high on the agenda at Severn Trent’s Minworth site. As part of the site’s ongoing commitment to refine the use of renewable resources and technology, Severn Trent looked to introduce a management system and training requirements for the team of onsite engineers operating a newly installed steam system.
04/09/2019 - Rockwell Automation drive technology mitigates harmonics and reduces energy consumption by 20% in high-RPM pharmaceutical blending application
Working for Iscador AG, the Invag AG was tasked with developing a drive solution for a high-speed centrifuge. These devices can only be found in two places worldwide: First, as part of an experimental research facility and second, for the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. In this instance, the entire component range, from the water-cooled motor, right up to the bearings, represented a special design for the production of the anthroposophic mistletoe drug, ISCADOR.
03/09/2019 - Make Short Production Runs More Efficient with Motion Systems from Rockwell Automation
Manufacturers are customising products to meet more targeted consumer demands. As a result, they must contend with shorter production runs and more frequent changeovers, which takes time away from producing products. The MagneMover LITE system is helping make these higher-SKU operations efficient by moving payloads faster in a more flexible way than traditional conveyors do today.
02/09/2019 - Automated weed screen cleaner proves its worth within weeks of installation
A new Landustrie weed screen cleaner installed by ECS Engineering Services at the Short Ferry pumping station on the River Witham has ensured continuity of water supply to the Toft Newton Reservoir 10 miles (15km) away in Lincolnshire.
02/09/2019 - Cruise passengers stay cool with high tech HVAC control systems
Modern cruise ships are promoted as the epitome of comfort and luxury; allowing passengers to adjust cabin temperatures to their liking is an essential part of the experience. With such a large number of rooms the HVAC control systems need to balance easy, responsive individual adjustment for hundreds of cabins with the main ship’s systems. Step forward Progea’s robust Movicon SCADA system, available in the UK and Ireland from Products4Automation (P4A).
