  • Optimizing factory operations through digital transformation
    Although often technologies used in the manufacturing industry are modern, innovative solutions, they are often accompanied by an outdated model of use. Machines collect huge amounts of data from the production floor, while at the same time IT infrastructure uses terabytes of data for business operations. However, because operational technologies (OT) and IT systems are not integrated, manufacturers cannot make real-time decisions and machine operators have problems managing so much information.
  • Thermal imaging and radar technology
    Critical infrastructure is of particular strategic importance for each country. That is why it is so important to ensure its comprehensive protection, from the safety of employees or the environment to maintaining the continuity of production and security of facilities. One of the solutions, more and more often used, are radar and thermal imaging technologies, which significantly increase the effectiveness of protection while minimizing costs.
  • Introduction to off- line programming of industrial robots
    Increasing requirements regarding the quality, efficiency and flexibility of production force the use of robot programming methods that do not interfere with its current progress. The elimination of production downtime (so-called "waste") is the main goal of the development of off- line systems used for programming automated means of production. Off- line programming (OLP) means programming robots outside of production and without stopping it, and is an increasingly used tool used at the stage of technological preparation of production (TPP). This article is an introduction to off- line programming of industrial robots.
  • Drones in the service of security
    The most modern research methods, such as acoustic emission or impulse eddy currents, have become an everyday reality in engineering practice. The directions of research development are aimed at supporting them by innovative techniques that often complement or even replace human work. The UDT still develops a fleet of drones designed to work in confined spaces or at heights. It can be clearly stated that nowadays drones have become a tool used to ensure public safety.
  • Big data - the future of energy?
    In Europe, another record for wind and solar power (547 TWh ) was achieved last year. For the first time, this value was greater than the amount of power obtained from gas (524 TWh). Energy from the sun's rays was generated by 27% more than in 2019. However, millions of micro -installations created destabilize the energy network. As Eaton experts indicate, in order to keep up with changes, the energy sector must use intelligent solutions and big data resources.
  • Modularity is the future of IT
    The dynamics of the development of the broadly understood IT industry has been extremely high in recent years, which is largely influenced by the rapidly progressing digitization of many areas of life. Intelligent solutions based on continuous data exchange are more and more often and more eagerly used. One of the consequences of this state of affairs is a radical change in the concept and standards of creating data centers - data centers are being abandoned individually for the current needs of the organization in favor of much more flexible modular solutions.
  • ELC 100 safety curtains
    Leuze expands its safety product offering with the ELC 100 safety light curtains. These robust devices ensure the protection of danger points through the control of key parameters.
  • Anticorrosive varnish with graphene
    Polish scientists patented an anticorrosive water-based varnish with the addition of G- Flake graphene oxide. The varnish can be used to protect steel structures of buildings, internal surfaces of ships or electric motors.
  • Smart Flex Effector increases the sensitivity of robots
    A sensor-supported compensation module for articulated and linear robots: Smart Flex Effector increases precision and efficiency, avoids errors and enables greater automation. A compensation module, which can be installed in existing equipment, with sensors and kinematics with six independent degrees of freedom, extends the possibilities of industrial automation.
  • Recall of cars with internal combustion engines in the European Union
    From 2035, no vehicles with a combustion engine will be allowed to run on the road in the European Union. As a consequence, the automotive industry is facing the need to rebuild its production plants on an unprecedented scale. The decommissioned production installations can at the same time achieve high prices on the used machinery market, which will partially finance the required investments.
  • DLP Igus 3D printing tribo - resin presents a resin for 3D printing wear parts
    This enables the additive production of particularly small, precise components with a service life of 30 to 60 times longer than that of conventional 3D printing resins. And gus is also expanding its 3D printing service with the ability to produce parts on DLP printers that reach a resolution of 0.035 millimeters.
  • Northern CO2 transport and storage infrastructure
    Lights , a joint venture between Equinor, Shell and Total Energies, is the first to develop an open and flexible infrastructure for the capture and safe storage of industrial carbon dioxide. For this project, ABB will provide the main power, automation and safety systems to enable the new CO2 capture terminal to be operated remotely and to ensure optimal plant operation.
