Panel Builder System Integrator

August 4, 2020

PBSI GRE 6 400Electrical workers searching for versatility with a multi-functional tool to cut wire, crimp connectors and punch electrical panels now have a practical option with the new Greenlee GRE-6 Interchangeable Head 6-in-1 Cable Termination Tool, powered by a Makita® battery. The GRE-6 is a 6-ton hydraulic tool with six interchangeable tool head options and is backed by the Greenlee Gator®
seven-year warranty.

“The GRE-6 is ideally suited for electrical troublemen or maintenance professionals that need a variety of tools with hydraulic power,” said Ryan Berg, Product Manager, Greenlee for Emerson. “GRE-6 provides that versatility by allowing the ability to quickly switch tool heads and reduces time wasted going back and forth to search for multiple tools. It’s one tool that can do the job of three with efficiency and precision.

Additionally, the GRE-6 reduces the cost of tool ownership and saves storage space. Available separately or as a kit, the QuickChange System gives operators the ability to quickly and easily switch heads. Head options include:

  • CU/AL Scissor Cutting Head - Designed for cutting up to 750 kcmil (MCM) copper/aluminum building wire.
  • ACSR Cutting Head - Capable of cutting up to 477 kcmil (MCM) ACSR and up to 3/8-inch guy wire.
  • 6-Ton Quad-Point Crimping Head - Classified to UL 1976 for copper connectors and wire from #8AWG to 750 kcmil (MCM) and aluminum connectors and wire from #8AWG to 500 kcmil (MCM).
  • 6-Ton Service Drop Crimping Heads (O and BG configurations) - For use with:
    • Copper Taps: #10 Solid – 2/0 Stranded
    • AL and ACSR Taps: #14 Solid – 4/0 ACSR
    • Stirrups: #6 – 4/0 ACSR
    • Tension Splices: #10 Stranded – 4/0 ACSR
    • Lugs and Splices: #8 – 350 MCM AL, 500 MCM CU
    • Service Entrances: #10 Stranded – 4/0 ACSR
  • Knockout Punch Head – Punches ½-inch to 4-inch holes in 12-gauge mild steel and 14-gauge stainless steel. The 360-degree head rotation increases maneuverability. Accessories include draw studs and spacers.

A Makita® 18-volt LXT® Lithium-Ion 2.0Ah battery system provides more run time per charge. The powerful battery reaches a full charge faster when using the Rapid Optimum Charger (sold separately).

PILZ WebinarAutomated processes introduce unique safety challenges that require actively monitored protection for the machine operator, the machine itself, and the product that is being produced.

This often requires machines to be fenced-in with access being provided via lockable doors, however, a lockable door can also present its own hazard.

All Happening Live: the Eplan Virtual Fair

Rittal and EplanLast year Eplan welcomed around 1,400 attendees from 73 countries to its international Virtual Fair. Impressive figures – and that in times before such virtual formats had become the standard almost everywhere. This year the interest in new, innovative Leadership Talks, practice-oriented webcasts and worldwide chats for talking shop with other users is likely to increase again.

This year’s Eplan Virtual Fair has a full sixteen-hour programme planned. This year marks the fifth edition of the global “trade show on the net”, which has enjoyed a continually growing number of visitors from all around the world. The fair will be broadcasting, presenting and chatting live from 6.00 am to 10.00 pm (CEST).

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.
