Food and pharmaceutical makers can better protect the integrity of their products using new hygienic industrial control hardware from Rockwell Automation. The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix VPH hygienic servo motors and a new stainless-steel version of the Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 7 graphic terminal both help minimize contamination during production and ease compliance.

 

 

 

Ossid, a Battleboro, NC-based tray packaging equipment manufacturer and a ProMach company, was started back in the 1970s as a small fabrication shop that refurbished older wrapping machines before developing what would become the first Ossid 500 inline overwrapper. This product caught the attention of ProMach in 1999, which then acquired the company. Since then Ossid has been expanding its machine offerings while leveraging technology.

 

 

 

If you ignore the short circuit current rating (SCCR) of an industrial panel it might just go away anyway. By go away I mean that the panel might just self-destruct. If the available current or energy that reaches the panel in the event of a short circuit in the panel exceeds the levels that the panel can safely interrupt or contain, that energy has to go somewhere. It is the unpredictability of what will happen first that makes an insufficient SCCR so dangerous. Maybe the circuit breaker will explode while trying to open or maybe not open at all because the internals have welded shut? What happens then? Maybe the energy will find a path to ground and a shock hazard is created.

 

 

 

In today’s fast-paced manufacturing world, you must be at peak productivity to compete, and the only way to do that is by integrating automated solutions. The biggest players in your industry benefit from automation, so why shouldn’t your business benefit, too?

It used to be that information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks and systems operated completely independent of each other. But in recent years, as industrial manufacturing has become more connected, so have the worlds of IT and OT, converging on the plant floor in new and exciting ways.

 

 

 

Lockout/tagout (LOTO) procedures are designed with the safety of maintenance professionals in mind – but they also consider the workers who are typically around and/or operating the machines. Because multiple audiences need to read procedures, it is important to be intentional about the information that is provided within each LOTO procedure, and how they are presented.

FANUC products have a well-earned reputation for performance and reliability. Whether it’s a FANUC CNC system or robot, customers know when they turn on their machines – they will run. Over time however, parts do wear out and sometimes components need to be repaired or replaced.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.
