Being prepared can help prevent costly equipment or facility damage. You can't avoid every disaster, but being ready for them when they do occur can help reduce downtime and save you a lot of money on equipment repair and replacement in the long run.
Intrinsic safety has a unique advantage over other ignition protection methods. Because trained personnel can connect and disconnect live circuits, it is possible to remove and replace intrinsically safe devices in hazardous areas.
Paint is one part of the manufacturing process that happens in nearly every industry, but it's one thing that many people don't think twice about. That is largely due to the fact that making paint is a complicated chemical process.
When safety is addressed early in the design phase, it is more effective and can prove to be a more economical safety play in the long run for the facility. However, its never too late.
The use of technology to expand health and safety in the workplace is effective and significant. There are fewer uses of technology that are more important than the improved safety of the workers.
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...

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
