Safety Scanner or Safety Mat? How to Choose the Right Safeguarding Device.

 

Omron Safety ScannerYou've done your risk assessment, and now it's time to implement a risk reduction strategy using engineering control measures. Since physical barriers can be costly and impractical, many manufacturers opt for what are known as presence sensing devices, a category that includes technologies like safety light curtains, safety laser scanners, and safety mats.

Because they don’t physically prevent an operator from reaching the hazard zone, presence sensing devices only work for machines that can be stopped anywhere in their cycle. Each device must be positioned far enough away from the machine that it’s extremely unlikely for anyone to be able to reach the danger area after triggering the safety response.

Pandemic Creates New Job Roles and Fosters Automation Investment

Pandemic Job RolesBy Pat McGibbon, Chief Knowledge Officer, AMT

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This observation was made by philosopher George Santayana in 1905, but can help manufacturers today avoid mistakes in responding to the impacts of the pandemic. History shows that there are two likely outcomes of the current crisis which relate to manufacturing.

First, automation and digital manufacturing technologies will expand sooner and faster than the manufacturing technology market as a whole over the next two years. Second, this growth spurt will lead to changes in the manufacturing workforce throughout the recovery.

Albesol Looks to Build off Schneider Electric Premset Medium Voltage Switchgear Partnership in Canada

 

AlbesolBy Sarah Pickard

As a Premset Medium Voltage Switchgear and modular system electrical cabinets manufacturer and service provider, Albesol INC is the first licensed partner on the Premset offer for Schneider Electric in Canada. Albesol’s Canadian operations were founded in 2018 when the company expanded its operations from Albania, where they worked primarily in the energy and power sector.

The Canadian arm of the company is centered around Premset Switchgear, which is applicable across a number of industry segments: mining, data centres, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings, as well as portable substations.

Coming Soon: The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8, Virtual control cabinet engineering – fully matured

The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8 is making its first big appearance at the SPS IPC Drives. The software for virtual 3D control cabinet engineering is characterised by its expanded flexibility, surprising users with a brand new 4K-capable user interface. It’s also causing decision-makers to sit up and take notice: during live, joint presentations in Nuremberg, EPLAN and Rittal will be introducing a whole series of innovations in the context of control cabinet engineering.

These include complementary software solutions for engineering and preplanning operations, innovative system technology for housings, power distribution and climate-control systems, automation technologies, and digital assistance systems for integrated automation of manufacturing processes. EPLAN and Rittal are thereby positioning themselves as solutions providers offering integrated solutions for optimising processes in control cabinet engineering: combined machine/hardware and software solutions, product-accompanying data and comprehensive on-site process integration services for customers.

Condition Monitoring Sensor With Integrated Data Preprocessing

Condition Monitoring SensorUnscheduled stops and faults in the production process can be avoided using our new multi-functional condition monitoring sensor. This intelligent sensor provides you with condition information which you can use for automating costintensive manual inspections. This condition data is also an essential component for implementing smart and flexible manufacturing – a key to IIoT.

The Balluff condition monitoring sensor detects various physical variables such as vibration, temperature, relative humidity, and ambient pressure, processes them, and provides the desired data to a host system via IO-Link.
