Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities.
Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
- small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
- improved serialisation...
VEGA Grieshaber’s VEGAPULS 64 measures liquids at a frequency of 80 GHz. This feature enables considerably better focusing of the radar beam. Measuring is thus much easier and more reliable, even under difficult conditions. The focused beam allows the sensor to be used even in vessels with internal installations or heavy build-up on its walls, as the sensor simply avoids these obstacles.
The larger the dynamic range of a radar sensor, the higher the measurement certainty and the wider the range of applications that the sensor can be used for. Media with very poor reflective...
Molex has worked with MB Connect Line GmbH to realise a new platform for remote access, monitoring and predictive maintenance: it is a cloud-based communication channel. Data transparency is getting increasingly important, and this platform adds communications and networking to the production process, offering machine and system builders’ capabilities designed to enable real-time condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, supporting the drive towards smarter machines and factories.
Clearly visible and legible pipe markers that indicate pipe contents and flow direction can increase efficiency for maintenance crews in finding the pipes that need servicing and the valves they need to shut down. Next to increasing efficiency, pipe markers help to avoid accidents by warning employees, contractors and first responders for dangerous pipe contents. Brady’s pipe markers are offered in any colour combination to achieve compliance with every plant's pipe marking standard. Industries can choose the quality level they need, the colours, messages and symbols to be printed on the...
Machine vision becomes an integral element of the automation ecosystem with B&R. At this year's SPS IPC Drives, B&R introduced its first image processing solution to be seamlessly incorporated in the automation system. The solution comprises cameras, software and lighting accessories.
At the heart of the solution is a broad selection of intelligent camera technology. Options at the lower end will replace simple machine vision sensors, while the top of the range will harness the full potential of high-end...
Every workplace accident generates cost, and potentially includes a severe human toll that impacts morale and productivity. Brady's guidebook provides an insight in the main safety risks in industrial sectors, includes components and tips to create a Go for Zero safety programme and presents tools to implement it on the workfloor.

FLIR Systems announces new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, developed in conjunction with Providence Photonics, that was designed to work exclusively with its GF-Series cameras. qOGI represents a major advance in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.
Using a Providence Photonics’ QL320™ in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 camera, surveyors can now measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.
Imagine a world without any sign and think about how quickly we would get lost, how chaotic traffic would become, how much time you would lose, and how many accidents this would result in. Signalling makes safe and efficient, also in the workplace.
Did you know 75% of knowledge is gained through visuals?
Signalling can help you to:
• prevent accidents
• gain time
• be compliant with legislation
• quickly follow up on safety audits
• match industry best practices
• visualise machine operating instructions
Paper slitting machines from American machine builder JSI are well-connected indeed. By using HMS technology, JSI can remotely access and control the machine via the internet and also enable wired and wireless communication between different parts of the machine. All this allows JSI to offer an even more competitive and connected machine.
· Operators avoid contact with sharp slitter blades
· Reduced downtime due to blade changes
· Reduced service costs as service can be done remotely
· Maximized blade life through wear...
FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more clearly...
