EIN GTD post 400Safety, Security and Connectivity provided the theme of this year’s German Technology Day (GTD) event, organized by seven Canadian companies with German roots including Bosch-Rexroth, EPLAN, Festo, Murrelektronik, PILZ, Rittal and WAGO.

The third edition of the German Technology Day that took place on October 26, 2021 in Toronto (live and virtual), and on November 2, 2021 in Montreal (virtual), proved to be a critically acclaimed event, and became the most attended edition to this day. The event builds on the innovative concept of the first live edition from 2019 and on the award-winning virtual edition presented in 2020, culminating in a hybrid event in 2021, in keeping with the changing times and current climate. It gave those still concerned about safety the option to enjoy the event from their homes or workplaces, while others who felt comfortable to venture out while observing COVID-19 safety regulations, were welcome to enjoy the camaraderie and networking.

gtd2This year, GTD 2021 pushed the envelope a little further by having experts from all seven companies present their industry-leading solutions and technology to live audiences in Toronto and Montreal, as well as online by streaming the live event on the GTD virtual event platform.

The German Technology Day event was an immersive and eye-opening experience for the audience, made up of key representatives in the manufacturing and automation industry thanks to the discussions initiated by each presenter, and the keynote addresses by dignitaries from the German Consulates in Toronto and Montreal, as well as the German Chamber of Commerce who highlighted the ever-evolving German and Canadian industrial landscapes.

gtd3Given such a resounding success and an already rich young history, it is safe to say that the German Technology Day has solidified itself as a landmark annual event for industry players looking to gain an edge in an ever-competitive market.

We look forward to next year, as the GTD team is already hard at work to ensure that the experience is even more rewarding, and more impactful for the industry.

5 Priorities Trending in Manufacturing Today

Rockwell AutomationThe test of global change has exposed the brittle nature of systems, processes, and supply chain solutions that had historically measured as “good enough.”

A recent global survey of 321 manufacturers has shed light on the biggest industry obstacles and punctuated the need for agility, technology adoption, and improved processes to respond to market adversity. The results of this survey make up the 7th Annual State of Smart Manufacturing Report – the most robust edition yet.

This study from Plex Systems, a Rockwell Automation company, in collaboration with Hanover Research, uncovers the current state of smart manufacturing, the challenges manufacturers are facing, and expectations for the future of the industry.

What Goes Into Building an IO-Link System?

One of the easiest ways for manufacturers to transform their operations with IIoT capability is to use IO-Link. This internationally accepted platform allows sensors to go beyond a simple ON/OFF reading and communicate details about fault detection, condition monitoring, and component identification, and more throughout the system.

Thanks to IO-Link, manufacturers can shorten commissioning time, minimize the impact of downtime, and boost their production availability, so it’s no surprise that many companies are curious about what technologies they need to acquire to get started.

Let’s take a look at what an makes an IO-Link solution.

What Is AC Inrush Current? How Can It Be Limited?

PBUS-40-PULS-ACInrushCurrent-400.jpg

Probably most of us already have noticed the effect of an AC inrush current in our homes - e.g. when the refrigerator, power tools, vacuum cleaner or the air conditioner turn on. The surrounding lights may dim shortly, a sign that the AC voltage is being drawn down by the switch-on process of this device.

Fortunately, in the home environment, flickering lights are typically the worst condition that occurs. However, in an industrial environment, inrush current has potential risks. It can have a negative impact on operating systems, with unexpected down time or even damage to expensive equipment.

In addition, when selecting other system components such as circuit breakers, switches, relays, etc., the inrush current must always be taken into account. This means the lower the inrush current, the lower the additional effort in terms of system design and maintenance.
