Working for AMCO on part of the Evergreen 3 project, the Tata Steel Projects modular team completed the multi-disciplinary design, fabrication and installation of a new modular platform in just 3 months.
With its MAC502 reader, Pepperl+Fuchs is launching an innovative stationary universal code reader that can read all common 1-D and 2-D codes (26 different code symbologies) at very high speeds of up to 10 m/s and 30 readings per second.
Knowing the sequence of operations is always helpful, especially in machine and plant design and the programming of their control systems. ‘Eplan Operational Sequence’ now documents the functional timeline of a machine/plant by using convenient process descriptions. You have the choice between a functional diagram or a GRAFCET standard. PLC programmers will benefit from the seamless documentation, controlling the interactions of actuators and sensors.
New secure joining systems provide maximum security – Cannot be dismantled using conventional means – Reduce costs by eliminating supplementary assembly and security material – Ensure easy interchangeability with existing joining systems
What started with high-performance 3D mounting layout turned into an integrative "XL engineering solution" for enclosure layout. Design, 3D layout, production and mounting merge to form an integrated solution – plus more added-value.
Gravel plant cuts costs and reduces maintenance expenditures by using geared motors. In many gravel pits, stone crushing plants and similar operations, motive power for conveyor belts is provided by shaft and belt drives. Until recently, this was the situation at the gravel plant of NorStone AS in Tau, located in the southwest region of Norway. Recently NorStone, a subsidiary of HeidelbergCement AG, decided to change to robust geared motors. This option promised lower investment costs and increased operational reliability, along with better process security. Reduced energy consumption thanks to higher efficiency was also anticipated.
