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.
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...
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
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The automation and collection of information thats available from machine to machine communication enables manufacturers to transition from corrective to preventive maintenance and ultimately to predictive technologies which rely on more information and data collection.
EXAIR's Chip Vac picks up dry or wet chips and delivers them directly to an ordinary open-top drum. The Chip Vac is used to clean chips fixtures, floors and work surfaces of machining centers, lathes, saws, and other industrial equipment. The powerful suction is ideal for fast and efficient cleaning.
The compressed air operated Chip Vac is an industrial duty vacuum designed specifically for vacuuming chips. It creates a powerful direct flow action that vacuums metal, wood or plastic chips into an ordinary drum.
minute, the Chip Vac can be removed and easily placed onto another drum to keep different materials separate for recycling. Chip Vacs are available in 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon sizes. EXAIR is offering a special on all of their Industrial Housekeeping products for a limited time. www.exair.com/184/cvdirold.htm To see video click here: https://exair.co/watchchipvac?pub=184.cvv
