Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.
Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.
Competent consultants can greatly enhance the risk assessment process, but the final responsibility for personnel safety is still that of the employer. Employees should also be trained to recognize hazards and act appropriately.
Nobodys bottom line is more valuable than the human lives that help create it. To that end, consider the following best practices for shoring up safety in your facility.
Among its directives, NFPA 652 outlines deadlines for sampling and analysis to identify potential risk areas for dust explosions in industrial facilities. Spotlight now turns to mitigation equipment.
Before you connect your machinery to the internet, please make sure you do a full IT risk assessment, considering not only the benefits, but the potential troubles you may encounter, and then think if having "constantly connected" machinery is REALLY necessary.
I wish to promote a discussion among our Customers and End Users about why they should use and require physical barriers (mesh panels) - also called "Perimeter Protection".
Through multi-lingual training, manufacturers achieve target goals and obtain the best results.
Predictive maintenance, the process by which machines that are connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) with AI capabilities predict when and where something needs to be fixed, can fortel and forestall dangerous accidents from happening in the first place.
Spencer Chin for Electronics360: Interconnection component suppliers Hirose Electric Co., Ltd., based in Tokyo, and Harting Electronics GmbH, Espelkamp Germany, have reached an agreement on the joint development, product standardization and marketing of a miniaturized connection technology system for 10 Gbit ethernet. The technology will overcome the limitations of RJ45, which is not ideally suited for industrial environments and could only be deployed with certain modifications. In light of this situation, Harting developed reportedly the world’s first industry-compatible field attachable RJ45. The miniaturization of components and interfaces in connection technology has become a key factor in global digitalization through the Internet of Things and Services. Cont'd...
Taking the fear out of FDA UDI requirements.
Safety is a complex topic, but these six factors are helping to not only increase workplace safety this year but also efficiency, quality and employee well-being.
America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) today announced the launch of the America Makes & ANSI Additive Manufacturing Standardization Collaborative (AMSC). The purpose of the AMSC will be to coordinate and accelerate the development of industry-wide additive manufacturing standards and specifications consistent with stakeholder needs and thereby facilitate the growth of the additive manufacturing industry. Participation is open to any interested person.Â The catalyst for the AMSC is the fact that a number of standards developing organizations are engaged in standards-setting for various aspects of additive manufacturing, prompting the need for coordination to maintain a consistent, harmonized, and non-contradictory set of additive manufacturing standards.

binder USA, LP, has expanded the M12 product family with the addition of the M12 A-Coded Connector, which is now certified for both Ecolab and FDA Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21 standards. The M12 A-Coded connectors are extraordinarily durable and IP69K-rated, ideal for harsh-duty and washdown applications in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. Available in 3, 4, 5, 8, and 12 contacts, the high quality stainless steel locking rings (V4A) and gold contact plating can also withstand UV exposure and shock and vibration.
