    • CMS: the evolution towards robotics (6)
      The use of technical systems to assess the current technical condition of means of production has a tradition of almost a century. About 60 years ago, after the development of non-contact eddy current vibration sensors, vibration techniques began to be widely used to secure the operation of critical production means - starting with rotating machines. Over the decades, newer and newer techniques appeared, followed by monitoring system solutions that made the supervision of the technical condition more effective.
    • Poland at the forefront of the level of robotization in the world (16)
      The latest IFR report shows that the world of industry focused on robotization is returning to the upward trend before the economic freeze caused by the pandemic and the geopolitical situation. The pace of robotization in Poland for 2021 amounted to 56% year on year and overtook the leader of the global market of industrial robots - China.
    • A robot is a tool – like a car in transport or a computer in an office (20)
      Industrial robotics has been developing for years. However, in the last year, the demand for mechanical workers has clearly increased and, according to the IFR, resulted in a record result of over 517,000 jobs. new industrial robots installed in global industry. Greater interest in investing in robots was also visible in Polish production, which acquired 3,348 new robots. This acceleration shows that companies increasingly feel the need to optimize manufacturing processes and place high hopes in automation.
  • Report: Safety of employees in production
    • Working safely with the machine (22)
      For a person who deals with the safety of employees on a daily basis, a machine in a plant means generating threats - both for the operator and other employees. How to minimize the risks?
  • Production
    • Types of bearings and their use in the production process (26)
      Bearings are ubiquitous in the world around us, they are an inseparable part of castors for armchairs or cabinets, bicycle wheels, car engines, as well as production or mining machines. These parts have accompanied humanity for centuries. They were originally made of wood, and have been used since the Neolithic period. The increase in demand for goods resulted in the need to increase the size of the machines used so as to streamline, accelerate and optimize the production of the product economically.
    • Like in a Swiss bank, i.e. about industrial gates in production halls (29)
      They are not only to protect what the hall hides, but above all to facilitate everyday functioning: free pedestrian and car communication, unloading and loading of products. These are the basic functions of industrial doors. Their offer is rich, and manufacturers, in addition to standard solutions, also offer solutions prepared for individual orders, thanks to which they can be adapted to each facility. So what should you look for when choosing an industrial door? First of all, the specificity of the facility itself and the type of business. You can't save on security either. Only then will the gates fulfill their functions in 100 percent.
  • Technologies
    • Flow sensors and their importance in industry (34)
      The world of the fourth industrial revolution requires its "participants" to be able to digitize the world. Sensors are becoming a common method of replacing or supplementing the reality that surrounds us, using human senses or supplementing them with previously unavailable ranges. The use of presence or displacement sensors has become the norm for some time.
    • Energy flow in practice - cables and wires (37)
      Electricity powers the modern world and, despite appeals to save it, it is hard to imagine a life completely devoid of this power. Most of the devices in industrial plants work thanks to it. The electrical installation is located in virtually every building, but its functionality and safety of users depends on whether it has been correctly selected and laid properly. This article provides a brief overview of the types of cables and wires that can be found in various applications.
    • Better organization in a small space (41)
      In order to be able to store and transport as much as possible in a small space, better and better logistics solutions are being sought. However, optimizing the use of a given place does not have to involve huge costs, relocation or complicated systems.
    • Standards for food industry machines (42)
      The food sector in Poland is constantly thriving, which can be seen both in the colorful fields in the warmer seasons and when looking through any rankings on the national economy. No wonder that Polish and foreign investors focus on food and new, more and more modern buildings and production halls are being built, focused on this particular industry. However, although it is described as the most stable and fastest growing branch of the national economy, like any other, it is conditioned by standards, the more restrictive, as they are closely related to food.
    • Screw, hammer or press - which method of connection to choose? (44)
      If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be able to hang our beloved picture on the wall. We wouldn't have a wall either. In fact, there would be no frame, or even the aforementioned photograph, because there would be no printer. Of course, we are talking about fasteners. And we can talk a lot about them - just like there are a lot of their types, classifications, sizes, shapes or materials from which they are made. So how to find yourself in it?

    • A solution to the crisis - transparency and elimination of losses (47)
      Today, the global crisis affects almost every branch of the economy. Virtually every representative of the manufacturing sector bears the costs of war, pandemics, staff shortages, huge inflation or energy problems. An additional factor contributing to the difficulties in the functioning of enterprises is the extremely uncertain future, as the economic decisions of representatives from both the east and the west, as well as the hosts of Poland, are a great unknown.
  • Special feature: sheet metal working
    • Introduction to sheet metal working (54)
      Sheet metal is used in many areas - both in construction and in industrial production. Regardless of the branches, in order to fulfill their function, they must be given the right shape. It is obtained by plastic processing, which includes cutting, stamping and bending. Currently, these tasks are usually entrusted to advanced machines, including CNC devices.
    • Pipe processing machines - what to consider when choosing them? (58)
      It would be hard to imagine the modern world without all kinds and dimensions of pipes, tubes or profiles. Of the machines used to form these particular forms, benders are the most common machines. As their name indicates, they are used for bending, i.e. shaping the aforementioned pipes, profiles and all kinds of metal products. There are many types of pipe benders. So how do you choose the right machine for your needs?
