Challenges of PLM Integration

Time to market and innovation issues are only two examples from the long list of the most common challenges even the top manufacturers face. In an effort to solve their problems and optimize their business processes, most manufacturers turn to tailored PLM solutions nowadays.

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM)

In contrast to traditional corrective maintenance or scheduled maintenance, CBM is an approach whereby maintenance is performed proactively on evidence of need identified through direct or indirect monitoring and predictive analytics of the assets of interest.

Maintenance in the Digital World

Taking a predictive approach to maintenance is key to maximising uptime, and with Industry 4.0 transforming the manufacturing landscape, now is the time for design engineers to look to digital solutions to reduce machine downtime and ensure consistent levels of efficiency.

Metal Additive Manufacturing Powder Recovery Equipment

Metal AM powders, such as titanium, aluminium and Inconel are used to produce parts for F1 cars and to ensure their quality, the powder is qualified before use and, when the build process is complete, unused powder is reclaimed and requalified.

Seven Key Considerations When Choosing the Right Equipment Lubricant

Not investing in the right lubricant is clearly a costly mistake especially if you are buying old machinery for business use. This is because a good lubricant can maximize the returns on your investment by ensuring that your old machinery runs at optimal efficiency...

How to Effectively Clean and Maintain Manufacturing Equipment

Addressing the wear and tear on equipment is essential for any manufacturing operation, and in this article, we'll detail everything you need to know. We'll walk you through four effective methods of cleaning and maintenance so you can avoid expensive downtime

Using IoT for Machine Learning-based Predictive Maintenance

By tapping into existing maintenance or equipment logs, a manufacturer can apply machine learning to predict which connected devices or machines will be in need of servicing or forecast required inventory levels across warehouse locations...

Hose Failure Can Halt the Manufacturing Process … Don't Let It Happen

Preventative maintenance can have far-reaching effects, so take the necessary steps. Dont let something as small as a hydraulic hose failure cost your factory a sizable sum.

Why Startups Are the Future for the Industrial Internet

Predictive maintenance is revolutionizing the industry and transforming the entire operation. This technology predicts problems in a factory before they even happen, changing the paradigm and preventing disasters.

Predictive Maintenance, the 1st Step Towards Self-Maintenance and AI

Many businesses are already using continuous monitoring technologies - like Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices - which is a good start; but the key lies in not just simply monitoring the output of various data (which is how many companies use it today), but by taking the next step and employing advanced algorithms and machine learning to take action from real-time insights and anticipate future outcomes.

Machine Learning for Asset Maintenance

Unsupervised Machine Learning is much more cost effective than Supervised Machine Learning because the algorithm does not need blueprints or understanding of the physical process to "learn" the behavior of the asset.

Robot Monitoring and Preventive Maintenance Solution

A robots abnormal condition can be detected early via data comparison, so a high-speed equipment monitoring solution must be able to acquire analog signals at the rate of 1000 signals per second. Then the collected signals need to be delivered to the control room for monitoring management and data analysis.

Maintenance Trends in 2017

Remember that these trends are already in place, for the most part. What you'll deal with are advancements and enhancements that make the trends more apparent.

One-Stop Repair for Food & Beverage Processing Equipment

Food and beverage processors speed repairs and reduce costs by working with single source for full gamut of machine repairs, from electronic controllers to motors.

Automatic Lubrication Systems That Stand Up to Corrosive, Caustic Environments

The latest in automated lubrication systems ensure optimum equipment performance, even in harsh plant environments, and reduce unscheduled maintenance. Corrosive plant environments are among the most serious threats to many industries today, contributing to extensive production downtime and exorbitant maintenance costs.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
