Why Standard Surge Protection is Insufficient

On average, businesses suffer 14 hours of downtime every year. Businesses cannot always determine why this downtime occurs, but they can do more to proactively mitigate the negative impacts, particularly in terms of power quality.

48 hours to digitalise - How one production plant went remote in just two days

Digitalising a production facility typically takes years of development, but one Sandvik tube site brought remote manufacturing to its stay-at-home workers in just two days.

Redefining the boundaries of automation - Identifying production problems is not rocket science

Production challenges do not wait on IT developments, and getting to the root of a problem, or identifying the conditions that hinder smooth operation, does not always have to be rocket science. Here, George Walker, managing director of Novotek UK and Ireland, points out that sometimes, it just takes blending information from different sources into the right views for the right people.

Hui Ting Has developed a model machine for wire heading and forming integrated machine

CNC Head Forming & Wire Bending Machine 1. Use the large power servo motor imported from Japan, work in cooperation with the bending machine, complete head forming and wire bending at one time, and manifest the perfect combination between intelligence and power. 2. Can be used for puction of auto exhaust pipe hooks and other wire forming products after cold heading. Note: used in connection with wire bending machine

Analysis of the respective advantages of three structures in wire forming machine

Wire forming/bending machine, the advantages of each of the three structures are analyzed. At present, the automatic equipment used in the production line is divided into three structures: turning machine, rotary plate machine and multi-axis camless machine.

Domestic Supplies of Polyester Woven Webbings Takes on New Urgency in the Post-COVID Era

The polyester woven webbing market experienced serious short-term disruption from the closing of the last United States manufacturing plants that could supply yarn complying with the Berry Amendment. After some new domestic yarn manufacturers entered the market, some manufacturers, including Bally Ribbon Mills, stepped up to produce 100 percent Berry-compliant polyester webbing for critical safety applications. The material, used for seat belts, tie-downs, retractors, and medical supplies, is of higher quality, meets relevant specifications, and can be engineered to meet specific customer requirements. What's more, positive engineering and manufacturing changes made to adapt to the COVID-19 emergency hold great promise in streamlining and improving future polyester webbing projects.
