Static grounding protection for Type C FIBC located in potentially combustible dust atmospheres

Flexible bulk bags, such as FIBCs, are used in a range of industrial applications. Powders and bulk solids tend to be the primary material to be loaded into the bags and transported to other locations, causing dust to envelope the plant and static electricity to build up on the transfer pipes and hoses. Together, these are a dangerous mix and without proper safety protocols, could cause a static discharge incident, resulting in fires or explosions.

How to get the best out of your high pressure homogeniser

Fluid processing requirements are becoming ever more stringent, and so high pressure homogenisation is increasingly surfacing as a solution to meeting these needs. It is widely understood that almost every type of sample will have its own unique optimum processing parameters, due to differing particle sizes, densities, rigidity and so on. Therefore, it is of great importance ideal parameters are identified and applied during homogenisation.

OPC UA in the smart factory

The story of the Tower of Babel describes a time where all human beings spoke the same language. When the Babylonians decided to build a tower tall enough to reach heaven, God stepped in and created a multitude of languages so the builders could no longer understand each other. The result? The tower was never completed. Here Sophie Hand, UK country manager at industrial parts supplier EU Automation, explains the universal language of automation equipment ― OPC UA.

Werth TomoScope XS – CT Scanning Technology, in a New Compact Format

In recent years, developments in computed tomography have concentrated on the high-resolution measurement of large workpieces and materials that are difficult to penetrate. To this end, large and heavy coordinate measuring machines were used. X-ray tubes came in two varieties: Closed tubes often need to be replaced after just two or three years, while open X-ray sources require maintenance several times a year. This results in frequent downtime and high maintenance costs.

The poisoned apple effect

~ Breaking the chains of Traditional Machine Vision ~

                                                            

In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the jealous stepmother of the protagonist orders the title character to be killed. Snow White escapes and is later discovered hiding in the seven dwarfs’ cottage. To further her evil agenda, the stepmother disguises herself as a hag to deliver a poisoned apple, which causes Snow White to fall into a deathlike sleep that can only be broken by a kiss from a prince. Here Harel Boren, CEO of Inspekto, founder of Autonomous Machine Vision, explains how manufacturers and their QA managers can ensure their QA story has a happy ending, just like Snow White’s.
