International construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic has launched the RX12, a powerful new rig-mounted hydraulic breaker for carriers between 9-15 tonnes. Compared to its predecessor model, the RX12 offers a 10% increase in output power and a 28% increase in impact energy. Ralf Majchrzak, spokesperson for rig-mounted attachments at Chicago Pneumatic commented: “With the RX12 we have further improved our hydraulic breaker portfolio, and are now able to offer our customers a solution for carriers between 9-15 tonnes that delivers both increased power and consistently reliable performance.” With a service weight of 625 kg and a tool diameter of 90 mm, the RX12 delivers a combination of high reliability and efficient performance; making it ideal for a range of light demolition, landscaping, building renovation and road construction applications. The RX12 features an innovative mono-block design, with the cylinder and tool holder integrated in one piece. This reduces the total number of parts, and eliminates the need for side bolts, to increase overall reliability. The inclusion of a replaceable cylinder sleeve also cuts repair time and costs. The new breaker’s double tool retainer bars ensure optimal working tool guidance, with a onepiece floating wear bush enabling quick and easy field replacement of the working tool. The RX12 has a central lubrication point for

manual greasing, but can also be equipped with an automatic lubrication device called CP-Lube. To lower stress levels for man and machine, the RX12 has a breaker box guidance system that dampens noise and vibration levels. As with all hydraulic breakers in the RX range, the RX12 features gas/oil hybrid technology, an internal control valve, and a Power Booster mode that reuses wasted recoil energy for increased efficiency and performance.

HANNOVER MESSE showcases best of 21st Century manufacturing U.S. President Barack Obama called it “the world’s leading show for industrial technology.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel says it is “the biggest industrial show of all.” HANNOVER MESSE is not only the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, but also a standing annual appointment for political and business leaders from all over the world. HANNOVER MESSE 2017 (24–28 April; Hannover, Germany) unites seven trade fairs at the Hannover Exhibition Center: Industrial Automation, MDA–Motion, Drive& Automation, Digital Factory, Energy, ComVac, Industrial Supply, and Research & Technology. Roughly 6,500 companies from 70 countries present their products and services to more than 200,000 visitors from 80 countries. Poland is Partner Country in 2017. As the birthplace and

driver of Industrie 4.0, HANNOVER MESSE is a magnet for business leaders and politicians who want to learn how digitalization is transforming manufacturing and energy systems. HANNOVER MESSE is also a major platform for technology transfer and the only event in the world that presents the complete industrial value chain, from product development all the way to final finishing. HANNOVER MESSE attracts managers from small and medium-sized companies as well as CEOs from global enterprises such as Apple, Foxconn, Microsoft, and Volkswagen. Roughly one third of visitors come from abroad. Ninety-five percent of these are trade professionals, 68 percent are key decision-makers, and 44 percent are executives. Furthermore, 52 percent of visitors seek new suppliers. Exhibitors

generated approximately 5.5 million business leads at HANNOVER MESSE 2016. “Integrated Industry is the defining trend of 21st Century manufacturing,” says Marc Siemering, senior vice president of HANNOVER MESSE. “Manufacturers who do not embrace digitalization to increase efficiency, flexibility and productivity will struggle to remain competitive.” In 2016, exhibitors demonstrated more than 400 practical Industrie 4.0 applications at HANNOVER MESSE. With its lead theme for 2017, “Integrated Industry – Creating Value”, HANNOVER MESSE brings to the forefront trends such as cobots (co-robots), digital twin, energy efficiency, predictive maintenance, and smart materials and coatings.

HANNOVER MESSE Leading platform for growth markets HANNOVER MESSE in Hannover, Germany, is the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.

Under the unifying motto of “Smart Manufacturing”, roughly 1,700 companies exhibit on 130,000 square meters of display area. Eighty-thousand visitors are expected. The United States was Partner Country at HANNOVER MESSE

2016. U.S. President Barack Obama brought the largest American contingent ever to Hannover and opened the show with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The timing was perfect, because the U.S. market has become the bearer of hope for global industry. Launched in 2014, “Make in India” is India’s program to build a world-class manufacturing industry by attracting foreign investment, encouraging innovation, and supporting workforce development. India showcased itself as Partner Country at HANNOVER MESSE 2015, generating interest from countries all over the world.

Strengthin 100, the industry’s first Thin Wall Stainless Steel Pipe Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining systems, has launched its new StrengThin™ 100 range for thin wall stainless steel pipes. The new product range, designed to overcome challenges associated with welding thin wall stainless steel pipes, is another first-to-mar-

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

ket launch for Victaulic. The current trend in the construction market across Europe is towards the use of thin wall stainless steel piping, it is the sector’s go-to, particularly for chilled water, cooling, potable water and oil-free air systems. With increased efficiency of onsite material handling, thin wall stainless steel pipe lowers total installation costs, making it as the preferred option for many. However, welding thin wall stainless steel isn’t without its risks. Overheating the pipe and needing chemicals to pickle and passivate the pipe to restore its corrosion resistance, are just two of the challenges associated with

the welding process. To address these industry challenges, Victaulic created the StrengThin™ 100 System. Mark Gilbert, Victaulic Vice President and General Manager, EMEAI, said: “At Victaulic we constantly aim to be on the front foot of innovation in the construction industry. We look to provide our customers with products that are more time efficient, cost effective and safer than anything else on the market. StrengThin100 is just that. Finally, our customers can use thin wall stainless steel piping without the fear of overheating the pipe as a result of welding, an issue that has challenged the industry for years.”

Victaulic’s new grooved mechanical piping system also uses the company’s propriety Installation-Ready Technology, which provide fast, easy pipe connections, eliminating the need to disassemble the coupling with no loose parts to lose or drop. The coupling is rated up to 16 bar and suitable for temperatures ranging from -34°C to +121°C. The system also includes a full line of lightweight stainless steel fittings and valves, as well as a new StrengThin™ 100 grooving tool.

Talent management: A formidable task If one were to assess the total assets of oneself or one’s organization, then the human centric qualities and resources would certainly top the list. Machines come and go...buildings can get dilapidated; but the treasure chest of human capabilities are both sustainable and in a sense eternal. The center point of an employee’s USP is the consortium of talent he has. If this is completely and dedicatedly harnessed for the good of the organization, then it is a situation of hitting the goldmine. If we think of Talent Management, there are three nodal aspects of Talent management, namely, recruiting the talent personnel, nurturing the talent in that personnel and training personnel in talent management.

W

hat if you could attract your competitor’s best employee for some extra money? Sounds easier than done! Attracting high-worth individuals from the competitors is not everyone’s cup of tea! Targeting them and finally hiring them is the test of your competencies experience, personal traits and brain application. This is where the strategic approach plays an important role. A full-fledged department, precisely Talent Management (a part of HRD), especially dedi-

cated to the purpose is required to recognize, source and poach them. However the process doesn’t end here. It is a never-ending course of action that requires continuous effort. Talent Management, as the name suggests, is managing the ability, competency and power of employees within an organization. The concept is not restricted to recruiting the right candidate at the right time but it extends to exploring the hidden and unusual qualities of your employees and developing and nurturing

them to get the desired results. Hiring the best talent from the industry may be a big concern for the organizations today but retaining them and most importantly, transitioning them according to the culture of the organization and getting the best out of them is a much bigger task. Talent Management in organizations is not just limited to attracting the best people from the industry but it is a continuous process that involves sourcing, hiring, developing, retaining and promoting them while meeting the organization’s requirements simultaneously. Therefore, it can be said that talent management is a full-fledged process that not only controls the entry of an employee but also his or her exit.

Benefits of Talent Management Talent management can be a discipline as big as the HR function itself or a small bunch of initiatives aimed at people and organization development. The result is a workforce that is more committed and engaged, determined to outperform their competitors and ensure a leadership position in the market for their organization.

Financial Benefits of Talent Management There are pros and cons of every management philosophy and the associated processes.

28 MANAGEMENT

However, all in all in the long run, the talent management ethos would definitely contribute to the tangible prosperity of a company.

Talent Management Process People are, undoubtedly the best resources of an organization. Sourcing the best people from the industry has become the top most priority of the organizations today. In such a competitive scenario, talent management has become the key strategy to identify and fill the skill gap in a company by recruiting the high-worth individuals from the industry. Let us discuss the stages included in talent management process: • Understanding the Requirement: It is the preparatory stage and plays a crucial role in success of the whole process. • Sourcing the Talent: This is the second stage of talent management process that involves targeting the best talent of the industry. • Attracting the Talent: it is important to attract the talented people to work with you as the whole process revolves around this only. • Recruiting the Talent: This is the stage when people are invited to join the organization and the actual process of hiring begins here. • Selecting the Talent: This involves meeting with different people having same or different qualifications and skill sets as mentioned in job description. • Training and Development: After recruiting the best people, they are trained and devel-

oped to get the desired output. • Retention: Certainly, it is the sole purpose of talent management process. Retention depends on various factors such as pay package, job specification, challenges involved in a job, designation, personal development of an employee, recognition, culture and the fit between job and talent. • Promotion: No one would prefer to work in an organization at the same designation with same job responsibilities. Job enrichment plays an important role. • Competency Mapping: Assessing employees’ skills, development, ability and competency is the next step. • Performance Appraisal: Measuring the actual performance of an employee is necessary to identify his or her true potential. • Career Planning: If the individual can handle the work pressure and extra responsibilities well, the management needs to plan his or her career so that he or she feels rewarded. • Succession Planning: Succession planning is all about who will replace whom in near future. • Exit: The process ends when an individual gets retired or is no more a part of the organization.

Talent Management - Opportunities and Challenges: There is no dearth of professionals but there is an acute shortage of talented professionals globally. Every year b-schools globally churn out management professionals in huge numbers but how many of them are actually em-

ployable remains questionable! Nonetheless, global or local at the grass roots level talent management has to address similar concerns more or less. It faces the following opportunities and challenges: • • • • •

used in high temp applications and super alloys (nickel based) for the aerospace industry. Our customer base expanded in concurrence with the first wave of industrial reforms in the 90’s. In timely fashion, pneumatic & electric tools, machine tools accessories, and high temperature insulations were introduced. The Piezometer System


COVER STORY 37

was introduced thereafter and has proved to be a stellar product, much in demand even today. Carbon Fiber, Fabric, Carbon Carbon Composites (CCC) and Graphite Paper for Fuel Cell Applications were added to the product portfolio. We set up our own machine shop to manufacture machined graphite components, thus strengthening our commitment to customers. In the early 2000’s, we ventured into a totally unrelated product basket with machines and consumables used in the manufacture of gold, silver and imitation jewellery were offered under the JMMC Division. Refractory products were added and we were pioneers in introducing the neutral ramming mass for Coreless Induction Furnaces (CIF) in Indian foundries. We set up a facility for manufacturing EDM Wires, which was a milestone achievement. Emboldened by the stupendous success of the JMMC, we were inspired to offer the most technologically advanced products 3D Printers, laser marking & welding machines, titanium sheets, and nickel based super alloys amongst others. These products were offered under 15 various divisions, created by bunching products specific to an application or industry. About

seven years ago, however, we underwent a restructuring and consolidation process and all the divisions were reorganized under 5 business verticals: Advance Engineering Solutions; EDM Solutions; High Temperature Solutions; Jewellery Manufacturing Solutions and Metal Cutting Solutions. From a single office in 1987, we have grown to a head office in Mumbai, 10 branch office locations, 6 retail outlets, and 3 job shops. Further, we employ 380 agile and competent individuals catering to a customer base in the excess of 25K. Q. Please brief us about company’s global reach & what are the global alliances that has been made in order to out-front the competition? One of our key strengths is our 60 global partners, who are renowned leaders in their own specific fields. Some of these partnerships are more than 25 years old. All our partners have grown their business in India, emboldened by Nickunj’s partnership and support. Some have even established their operations after years of hard work put in by the Nickunj team to establish the brand in the country. Our core competency has always

Nickunj - Head Office Overview

been in sourcing technologically-driven cost-effective products and services for our customers in India. To achieve this objective, we have committed to extensive overseas visits; to interactions at various levels with manufacturers; and to trials and evaluation at the customer end. The marketing initiatives were complemented by an efficient after-salesservice. This service was manned by extremely competent staff, who have been trained at our overseas principal’s facilities. Lastly, transformation from simply a company offering products, into an End to End Solution Provider is our methodology to out-front the competition. Q. What are the market prospects for the Nickunj products in India and How do you plan to position these products? Industrial demand has been fluctuating with positive bias on a long term basis in India. The prospects are infinite and the potential huge. The Prime Minister’s ambitious “Make in India” campaign, coupled with the advent of foreign investment in manufacturing facilities in India, will have an exponential effect on demand. Indian customers are very cost conscious and are open to trying new products and solutions. We have products and solutions suited to specific applications. Additionally, our wide product spectrum finds applications in most of industries, offering us an inroad to more opportunities. Our experience, expertise, product knowledge and close collaboration with customers enables us to position our products/solutions strategically. Q. Can you brief us about the marketing strategies that were applied in order to stand out in the competition? Our approach has been “Glocal”. We meet the needs of local customers with global solutions, providing maximum cost efficiency and minimum risk for customer. One of our offerings is sourcing and supplying difficult to procure materials. We go one step further to combine our products with cost-effective solutions packages, thus

providing all necessary technical inputs and administrative assistance for setting up Greenfield projects. This has helped create a niche for ourselves in a fairly saturated market with fierce competition. Another Nickunj strategy is our Productivity Improvement Program. We use our customers facilities, and deploy our personnel and products to substantially increase productivity and ensure steady & regular consumption of our products. The customers benefit from increased productivity, while we gain from a regular flow of captive business. Q. Brief us about the R&D and Quality policy for your business? All our overseas principals have very stringent and efficient quality assurance controls in place. They have strong R&D facilities to keep the products in tune with the latest technologies. The products we offer are subject to stringent quality controls. In our graphite machine shop, with continuous R&D efforts, we were able to machine components of acceptable quality on conventional machines (normally machined only on CNC’s or VMC’s). This was done with reduced machining time and minimum wastage. In fact, off-cuts generated were used for machining other components thereby making

the component competitive. Our stated Policy on Quality is enumerated below: We at Nickunj Eximp Entp P Ltd are committed to offer quality products & services to all our customers by providing a superior technological edge, innovative hitech industrial products and services backed by trained, agile & competent staff. By deploying the synergy in SOURCING quality products, offering sound SOLUTIONS, responsive & prompt SERVICE and unmatched SUPPORT, we are committed to continual improvement leading to total customer SATISFACTION, which is synonymous with the name ‘NICKUNJ’.

Q. How do your perceive the future of the Indian manufacturing industry? We are indeed catering to the manufacturing industry, and therefore, my reply to question 3 above partially answers this question. Whilst there could be setbacks in the short term, the long term forecasts are intact and with the slew of measures including the tax reforms adopted by the government, the future seems to be bright for the manufacturing industry. Further, demographic advantage with focus on digitization will play out to increase demand and that bodes well for manufacturing Q. What is your vision for your company ?

New Fluke infrared cameras deliver fast detection of maintenance problems Fluke Corp has introduced the Fluke Ti480 and TiX580 Infrared Cameras with 640 x 480 resolution and MultiSharp Focus, delivering exceptional image quality to industrial, process, utilities maintenance and building inspection professionals who need high measurement accuracy to quickly detect problems. With the Ti480 Infrared Camera, Fluke introduces 640 x 480 resolution into a rugged, pistol-grip form factor. The camera provides fast, one-handed operation to perform multiple inspections quickly and accurately. Now there is an “everyday” camera, with four times the resolution power of many commonly used 320 x 240 pixel cameras, for quick point-and-shoot troubleshooting. The new TiX580 Infrared Camera features a 240-degree rotating screen that allows thermog-

raphers to easily navigate over, under, and around objects to preview and capture images with ease. The 5.7-inch screen provides 150 percent more viewing area than a standard 3.5-inch screen, enabling thermographers to quickly identify issues in the field and easily edit images directly on the camera, reducing production time back at the office. Both cameras include MultiSharp Focus, an advanced focus system that takes multiple images with a press of a button. The camera combines them to produce one focused image of both near and far objects, delivering precision image clarity guaranteeing an in-focus image when you get back to your office no matter what the conditions. Features include: SuperResolution, which captures multiple images and combines them

to create a crisp, sharp 1280 x 960 resolution image — four times the pixel data of a 640 x 480 image. Another feature is LaserSharp Auto Focus, which uses a laser distance meter to calculate the precise distance to the designated target for sharper, more accurate images. The new infrared cameras integrate into Fluke Connect — the company’s full-feature platform permits Fluke tool users to receive, store, visualize, and report electronic measurement data from more than 40 Fluke Connect wireless test tools. This allows technicians to record and share thermal images, along with electrical and other measurements, in real time via their smartphones or tablets and automatically upload them to the cloud.

MEPL - The Leader in Resistance

WELDING

W

hen we talk of Mechelonic Engineers (MEPL for short), the first thing that conjures up in mind is the image of a Rail Welding Line it developed for the manufacture of continuous welded railway tracks for the Indian Railways. After long and rigorous R & D, Mechelonic Engineers developed the expertise to design and manufacture Rail Flash Butt Welders along with allied equipment like weld flash strippers, weld data recorders, rail straightening presses and rail grinding machines. It’s decades since the Railways have been using these robust equipment to make quality welds on which hinges the lives of millions who travel by rail. Flash Butt Welders is just one example of the early success of MEPL, the company founded by Mr. K.P. Antony who even today feels proud that he built not only machines but also relations with the giants in the industry. According to Mr. Gabin Kattukaran, the Director, the indomitable urge to provide dependable and cost effective solutions to the customer has culminated MEPL’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

into the development of a number of special machines for the industry. The container line developed for the metal can making industry in India is a classic example. This machine designed for side seam welding can make 360 containers per minute. Productivity is paramount here. These cans are used for packaging processed mango pulps. No downtime is acceptable. During season, the machines have to work for 24 hours a day, non-stop!

Engineering marvels The special purpose flash butt welding machine it has developed for BHEL for welding tubes end-to-end for heat exchangers is truly an engineering marvel. MEPL was pitted against several others for developing this machine. The company worked for over three years to develop this SPM. The challenges involved were manifold. The testing criteria of the tube joint are critical. The tube is to be bent without cracking. The material build-up should be minimal. After the coils get assembled, a metal ball

“We introduce machines yielding high productivity at low power consumption.” Mr. Gabin Kattukaran, Director, Mechelonic Engineers Pvt. Ltd

of 80-85% ID of the tube is passed from one end to the other to check free passage. MEPL met all these requirements and bagged the order against stiff competition. Subsequently it supplied three more machines to this power equipment giant. The machine is hydraulically operated, fully tropicalised and specially designed for heavy duty application where repeatability in performance is important. It is provided with a powered manual adjustment facility for proper alignment of the fixed and moving tubes before welding. For accurate and consistent weld results, fully solid state electronic controls are provided. All electrical controls are housed in a separate cubicle with required protection. The machine operation does not require any skilled labour. The welding parameters are easily settable through a user-friendly interface to the control system. Quality is assured with a PC based welding monitor. MEPL has also come up with a Steel Grating Welding Machine with a rating of 1800 KVA for manufacturing steel gratings by electrical resistance welding. The application of high current and high forging pressure under precise control of a special welding controller and a PLC based sequence controller results in high quality electro-forged weld joints. The machine is used for manufacture of world-class gratings using round, square or twisted cross bars. The company also offers special machines for mesh welding. Its seam welding machine with 2-axis CNC controlled sheet handling is designed for continuous and roll spot seam welding of plate type and econocoil type heat exchang-


54 PROFILE

ers. MEPL has exported such seam welding machines to handle sheets of 9 m length to China as well. Indeed, MEPL is a leader in resistance welding. Though there are ‘n’ number of manufacturers in this category, no one has a comprehensive range that MEPL has. Its customers also represent wide ranging industry segments like automobiles, railways, aerospace, defence, power, steel mills, white goods, metal can making, electronics, switchgear and so on. “We specialize in handling difficult jobs which others cannot touch. We cater to specialized markets where customized design plays a pivotal role. That’s our niche”, elucidates Mr. Gabin. “And we do not depend on any one industry for our bread & butter. For instance, the automobile industry has not been doing well for quite some time now. So we had to change our gear and concentrate on other industries where our contribution was valued and realization was faster. We sell our equipment for a premium. And our customers do not mind paying a little extra for our quality, expertise and involvement in providing solutions based on our vast experience. They know once we take up a job, we shall accomplish it – no matter what amount of efforts go into it and how much time it takes. For instance, the equipment for tube welding for heat exchangers supplied to BHEL took over three years for us to develop.” Mr. Gabin is quite clear that MEPL is not in the commodity market. “We are in the niche market where our domain knowledge and vast experience are constantly put to test. Most of our products are import substitutes. We believe in indigenous technology and are proud of the made in India tag.” Mr. Gabin relates that in some cases the welding per se is hardly 10%. The rest is job handling, testing, assembly and allied operations. The customers prefer one company that is capable of handling everything. That is where MEPL scores over.

Core strengths “Our people are our core strength”, confides Mr. Gabin. There is a strong sense of belonging amongst them. Each employee has put in an average of 10-15 years of service in the company. This stability, commitment, accumulated experience and process knowledge of our people is what is giving us the confidence to take up complex jobs.” The company has spearheaded several innovations in the field of resistance welding. It was one of the first to introduce microprocessor-based controls in its machines

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

A special purpose boiler tube welding machine developed by Mechelonic Engineers

some two decades ago. It used solid state electronics in the controls and powerpacks. It introduced servo-based systems in the machines depending on the dimensional accuracies and tolerances demanded. In keeping with the trend, it also automates its machines using CNC & other controls, linear guides, etc. “Today all components are available off-the-shelf. Hence, integration is easy provided you know the welding process, have the domain knowledge and know the components,” he adds.

Pursuit of excellence “Our aim is to provide more and more customized solutions to the customer. We introduce technologies relevant to the region in an energy starved country - machines yielding high productivity at low power consumption. There are some states where ample clean power is available. In some others there is acute shortage. So we have to make the necessary changes in our machine design to suit the power availability. It is universally known that with DG power the weld quality takes a beating. But we have now come up with machines which can make perfect welds even with DG sets,” reflects Mr. Gabin. “Resistance welding is a niche area. We cannot dictate changes. We have to follow change. We should be flexible. No matter what happens, we have to continue to be there,” declares the leader. MEPL has two manufacturing units now. One is in Mumbai and other in Vapi. These plants chisel out 120 machines a year on an average. The company has a highly motivated and dedicated workforce of 125 people. It has regional offices in Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Pune and resident engineers

in Jamshedpur, Ahmedabad and Chennai to attend to service calls and stay closer to the customer. “Mechelonic machines hardly require any trouble-shooting – so much so that a seam welder supplied to a customer in Mumbai some 36 years ago is still going stronger. If at all there is any wear & tear, it would be in the cooling system, pipes or cylinders.” Nevertheless, the company maintains a team of engineers and technicians specifically to service and maintain large welding plants. It currently provides such services to several Railway Flash Butt Welding Plants of the Indian Railways. Good spare parts inventory and management help in maximizing uptime of its machines at customers’ places. The pursuit of excellence has been a constant endeavour at MEPL. Its success is attributed to constant updating of technology, a firm commitment to continuous research and development, and a strong team that believes in itself and the company it belongs to. MEPL has every reason to boast of the widest range of products, systems & solutions in the Indian resistance welding market. Or as they would like to say: “Bigger, Better, Faster and More” welding solutions than anyone else in this part of the world. -P.K. Balasubbramaniian

FLIR thermal camera and clamp meter pass electrician’s test

When self-employed electrician Gary Fisher was given the opportunity to ‘road test’ a FLIR C2 thermal imaging camera and CM174 clamp meter, he saw it as a chance to see exactly how much value these advanced devices could add to his work.

I

n electrical installations, successful diagnosis of problems before they become a genuine danger is a real advantage. Among the devices best able to help facilitate this is a thermal imaging camera. Its speed and ease-ofuse make it a must-have gadget for the electrical trade. At least that’s the theory, but what about in practice? Gary Fisher carries out a wide range of electrical work, typically involving distribution boards, covering an area between his base in Milton Keynes, down the M1 corridor as far south as Harrow in northwest London. His father, now retired, started the business originally, which Gary joined after finishing school.

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

Identify heat spots in circuits “There’s no doubt that thermal imaging is coming more and more into what we do,” he says. “Even before I tried the camera I knew it would be able to identify heat spots that would show up circuits using a lot more energy than elsewhere in the system. I couldn’t wait to put the FLIR C2 through its paces.” The first thing that Mr Fisher noted was the size of the C2 (125 × 80 × 24mm), which he says “could easily be mistaken for a mobile phone”. Compact and light (130g), the device fits comfortably within an electrician’s top pocket. “Its ease-of-use was also striking,” he says. “I have never used a thermal camera before

but it really is point and shoot. The image can be viewed through the 3” touchscreen, which displays amazing picture quality.”

Report with razor-sharp images The C2 features FLIR’s patented MSX® real-time image enhancement technology to help identify problem locations easier. Furthermore, the C2’s 4800-pixel resolution detector is able to capture and display subtle thermal patterns, while a built-in work light and flash helps illuminate poorly lit areas encountered by many electricians. “It’s easy to see objects and heat areas extremely clearly and with plenty of detail, which

helps quickly identify the areas that need attention,” says Mr Fisher. “It’s the sort of device that can benefit electricians of all levels, from serious professionals who maintain high voltage installations in the industrial and heavy commercial sectors, through to domestic tradesmen. From my point of view, the opportunity to present the customer with a binder complete with thermal images that record and report findings is a mark of quality, and would definitely give me a competitive edge.” The C2 can store radiometric JPEGs at the push of a button. Furthermore, the images can be downloaded later using the free FLIR Tools software, which allows the user to adjust thermal image levels, isolate and add temperature measurements, change colour palettes and create persuasive reports.

as it helps with my decision making,” he says. “If there is any humming noise or any uncertainty surrounding a circuit, I can get the CM174 on the job and see immediately what’s going on.” With the FLIR CM174 clamp meter, which features IGM (Infrared Guided Measurement), users can identify dangerous and unknown problem areas quickly and safely. In short, electrical issues can be visually identified without requiring direct contact with panels, cabinets or cluttered wires and cables that may present safety hazards. “In essence the CM174 is a clamp meter combined with a thermal imager, which makes it a really neat device,” says Mr Fisher. “If I owned

this I know I would use it regularly.” Further features of the FLIR CM174 admired by Mr Fisher include the narrow clamp jaws, which help getting in between all the cables inside consumer units. He also says that it is of sufficiently robust design to keep inside his toolbox with the rest of his kit. “What more could an electrician want?” For more information, FLIR Systems India Pvt.

FLIR CM174 Prevent danger, save lives. However, aside from the C2’s innovative features, it is the device’s pure ability to avoid dangerous situations and, potentially, save lives that proves the main attraction. One of principal reasons that consumer units are made from metal is because of the fires that can occur due to loose connections building up heat points. “The FLIR C2 is just the thing to prevent this,” states Mr Fisher. “When performing an estimate you can simply point it at the client’s consumer unit and provide clear proof that there is a possible danger that needs to be addressed.”

Visualize electrical issues Sufficiently impressed with the FLIR C2, Mr. Fisher also had the opportunity to test the FLIR CM174 600AC/DC clamp meter. “When I’m undertaking a job I find it’s important to know what current is being consumed

CAT-IV Digital Multimeter and its Significance to user

Mr. Pravin Khisti, Asst. Manager (Research and Development) RISHABH INSTRUMENTS Pvt.Ltd.

I

f you are planning to travel on a bike or a car its necessary for your safety to wear the helmet or wear seat belt. Helmet will protect you from impacts and mechanical shocks. Seat belt saves your head from making impact on steering wheel. Air bags installed in car will be inflated in an accident situation. What If you are taking voltage or current measurements in electrically hazardous environment? will you Just pick up any multimeter with any random specifications ? NO !!! you must not. Then what you should do to keep yourself safe. Lets first understand the working environment in which you are going to use the multimeter. Your measurement area may vary from a simple battery voltage measurement, to the MCB or fuse protected sockets or at the utility incomer of your factory or house or you may be measuring directly on electrical pole. Naturally a question may arise in your mind that voltage is a voltage, may it be at my house hold socket or it is at electrical pole, what difference it makes to me, as multimeter is designed to measure voltages up to 1000V. How location of the measurement will affect me ? Can I select any multimeter

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

to use at any locations described above. To find the answer of this question lets take a look at what makes these various locations or working environments, different than each other even though voltage levels may be the same. The answer is energy levels i.e. ability to deliver the current at high voltages. As energy level increases, threat to life increases exponentially. Your multimeter must be designed to protect you in that particular energy environments. The energy levels at CAT IV are higher compared to CAT III or CAT II or CATI. Depending upon the energy levels, these working environments are referred as Installation categories and are divided into four categories i.e. CAT I, CAT II, CAT III, CAT IV. As energy level increases installation category increases hence the risk level also increases.

Below are the examples of installations categories. 1) CAT I : A battery or protected (by fuse or other means)electronic equipment or any high voltage low energy sources like 1000V in photocopier machine.

2) CAT II: The appliances connected to wall sockets. 3) CAT III: Installations, lighting loads in side the buildings. Loads separated from utility through at least one isolation transformer. Fixed or permanent installations directly connected to building mains supply. 4) CAT IV: Origin of installations, Panels at entry (source) level of the buildings, cables running between electrical pole to building. The connections to the meters at utility inputs. Bus and feeders, distribution panels. If you are working in CATIV environment high voltage and high energy transients or spikes caused by motors,lightening,variable frequency drives,discharging of capacitors etc can run through your multimeter without any warning. If your multimeter is not designed and tested for CATIV your life is at risk. CATIV 600V (or CATIII 1000V) multimeter should with stand 7.8kV transient, CAT III600V multimeter should withstand 6.1kV transient according to IEC-61010 safety standard. Other wise it can be dangerous to user’s life as shown below.


64 CASE STUDY

Lightening strike causes a transient on electrical line which can form an arc between input terminals of the multimeter. If proper clearance is not maintained during design or protection components are not used, this will lead to a high short circuit current in terms of few kilo Ampere for a momentary time. This can lead to the blast or burning of multimeter.Very high temperature will result from such arcs. This can cause burns to the user and cost his life. One more reason for high current flow through multimeter is using multimeter in wrong way. For example an electrician is measuring current. For this he should insert

RISHABH 601X Bluetooth and USB series

the leads in mA or A sockets. In A measurement mode input resistance is 10 mΩ. If now user want to measure voltage but forget to change the leads to V sockets even though the function selector knob is changed to Voltage function then voltage source will be short circuited, leading to a heavy current flow. Here the high quality fuses will come into picture to protect the user. These fuses should be ultra fast acting so that before current exceeds dangerously high level fuse should blow. Always choose the multimeters with proper category and voltage you are working in.

Tips to select right Multimeter for appropriate installation category: • If you are working in CATIV environment having working voltage 440V AC choose CATIV 600V Multimeter. • While choosing mulitmeter Category and voltage, always choose category first and then voltage. • For example: CAT IV 600V multimeter is safer than CAT II 1000V. • Voltage ratings of the Fuses used should be equal to or greater than maximum voltage measured by multimeter. • Fuses should be ultra fast acting. • Multimeter housing and probes should be double insulated. Rishabh Instruments provides Multimeters with additional safety feature to eliminate accidents due to wrong connections. This feature is called as ABS i.e. Automatic Blocking System.

4th edition of Hindustan Times Leadership Summit today was graced by the presence of Mr. Piyush Goyal (Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines) who shared his view point on the current subjects of Debate in India i.e. Demonetisation, solar power, UP Elections and his glorious vision on Indian Economy. Piyush Goyal, a trained Chartered Accountant, words Demonetization as the ‘Need of the Hour for India’. He said, “The cancellation of currency has played out well and it is a part of the series of brave decisions by the government in the last 2.5 years to curb black money and corruption in India. We have already witnessed a growth of 8.5-9% growth in Agricultural sowing and this decision will only add to the GDP.” “India needed this decision. It will change the course of Indian economy. It will help people get an equal footing on a day-to-daybasis.”, he further added. Speaking on the future of BJP after the elections in Uttar Pradesh, Piyush Goyal said, “We were going to sweep the elections before demonetization, now even, we will be in excess of 2/3 seats in UP election.” Sharing his opinion on PM Modi’s leadership, Mr. Goyal said, “India, finally, has a decisive leader who can take strong decisions. Solar prices have come down by 45% because of Prime Minister’s transparent bidding policies. We are open to any dialogue on our financial aspects.” He further added, “India is the world’s largest investment opportunity in the Energy

sector. I visualize about a trillion dollar expansion opportunity in the coming 14-15 years. Solar is a major thrust area for us. We need to expand our per capita consumption from 1100 units to 4000-5000 units and the infrastructure has to be robust to also give 24/7 uninterrupted power. I didn’t know “p” of power when I was assigned the ministry. The solar power resources were about 2500 mega Watt when I joined and now it has already crossed 8500 mega Watt. We have witnessed tremendous growth and plan to increase the no. to 100,000 by 2022.”

Automatic setting of emissivity The setting of emissivity and reflected temperature, both indispensable for precise thermal images, were time-consuming and with regard to reflected temperature, were less than accurate by now. These irregularities can be solved with the testo Îľ-Assist. In order to use this function, a special sticker (Îľ-marker) is attached to the measurement object. Via their integrated digital camera, the thermal imagers testo 868, testo 871 and testo 872 recognize the sticker, determine the emissivity and reflected temperature and set both values automatically. Objectively comparable images The newly developed testo Scale Assist function solves the problem of the users by adjusting the colour distribution of the scale to the interior and exterior temperature of the measurement object and the difference between them. This ensures objectively comparable and error-free thermal images of the thermal insulation behaviour of a building. The thermal imagers testo 865, testo 868, testo 871 and testo 872 are now available directly from Testo or expert channel partners.

Authorisation concepts in machine automation

I

n modern automation architectures, the interaction between machinery safety (Safety) and operational security (Security) is increasingly becoming the key to practicable concepts. It is important to consider not only the technical and normative requirements of safety, but in particular the need to assign information and authorisations carefully – issues that until now have been covered by organisational measures. With a safe operating mode selector switch, manipulation protection and access authorisations can be achieved in terms of overall safety. The development towards a networked automation landscape means that companies face new security challenges. Industry 4.0 systems can be reconfigured and optimised autonomously – i.e. by the system itself during operation, which requires safety to be re-assessed during runtime. It must also be ensured that no new safety risks arise as a result of residual security vulnerabilities.

Holistic approach increasingly important There are clear differences in perspective when it comes to the issue of safety: the internationally used terms are “Safety” for machinery safety and “Security” for operational security; this helps with the basic differentiation. Safety requires that residual risks that emanate from a plant or machine do not exceed the limit values specified in the standards. This includes hazards to the machine surroundings (e.g. environmental damage) as well as hazards inside the plant (e.g. persons inside the plant). Security is concerned with protecting a plant or machine from unauthorised access from outside, as well as protecting sensitive data from corruption, loss and unauthorised access internally. This includes explicit attacks as well as unintended security incidents. When developing solutions it is also important to consider the needs of the user from the very start, in terms of handling and user friendliness during operation, for in-

stance. If not, manipulation of safety measures will literally be programmed in. Holistic safety concepts require the interaction of safety & security, but that’s not all. In terms of the safety aspect, it’s important to check the extent to which security issues influence functional safety. This is the case if access or authorisation systems can be defeated or copied using simple means, or are accessible to everyone when a master password is written on a note stuck to a screen, for example. Key issues here include clear, safe proof of identity for products, processes and machines as well as for authorised persons, including safe information exchange across the whole production process.

Safety must be considered from the start In the internal European market, there is an obligation for machine manufacturers only to supply safe products to its customers. All rele-

Safety: When a safety gate is opened, hazardous machine movements must be stopped and a restart must be prevented. It must not be possible to either defeat or manipulate the guards

vant hazards must be identified, based on the intended use – taking into consideration all the lifecycle phases once the machine is first made available on the market. All the various groups who come into contact with the machine, such as operating, cleaning or maintenance staff for example, are also considered. The risk is estimated and evaluated for each hazard. Risk-reducing measures are established in accordance with the state of the art and in compliance with the harmonised standards. Ultimately, an intelligent safety concept must provide the greatest possible leeway and freedom as well as the highest possible level of safety. Access points to the machine or process are of vital importance. These must be protected against unauthorised opening and must guarantee beyond doubt that nobody is inside the hazard zone when the machine is started.

No danger to people … To ensure that deliberate or accidental opening of access doors cannot cause a hazard, they are protected in classic safety style with a safety gate system. This combines safety gate monitoring with safe guard locking inside one system and also provides safety functions such as emergency stop, escape release and a mechanical restart interlock. This means that anyone who is locked in accidentally can leave the danger zone quickly and easily in the case of danger. It will not then be possible to restart the plant until it is established beyond doubt via the integrated safety and reset functions that there is nobody else in the danger zone. With a safety gate system such as the PSENsgate from Pilz, human protection is guaranteed, in terms of safety. However, the matter of process protection in terms of operational security is still open.

… or process In practice, protection against unauthorised access can be achieved via a safe operating mode selector switch. It fulfils two functions: it selects the operating mode and controls authorisation for machine access. Operating mode selector switches such as PITmode from Pilz allow you to switch between defined operating modes. The operating mode is selected by inserting a transponder key with the relevant authorisation and pressing the pushbutton defined for the relevant operating mode. Each key is individually coded to enable unique user authentication, which prevents

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

manipulation. As the unique key can be used on several machines and can have different authorisations stored on it, several mechanical keys can be combined within one transponder key. This in turn reduces administrative work.

Clearly defined responsibilities Using the coded key, each operator is given access to the machine functions or machine operating modes allocated to him. Individual (access) authorisations can be assigned for each operator via the RFID-based keys. These can be assigned via identification management in the machine control system. Thanks to operating mode selector switches like PITmode, authorised personnel are able to operate and control the plant in various operating modes. Operators are given the machine enables that match their individual abilities and qualifications, providing a high degree of protection against unintended actions and manipulations, as well as security of information. On delicate or sensitive machinery, all operator actions need to be logged. Here too the system can provide support, as all operator actions are reported to the control system anyway. The authentication system can be used to assign the actions clearly to an operator. As a result, any changes during the machine operation can be documented, increasing traceability. Should anyone change a machine parameter during operation, this step will be documented. If

errors then occur, the reasons can be identified more quickly. Through self-monitoring, PITmode switches safely from one operating mode to the other. Five selectable operating modes are possible: automatic mode, setup mode, manual intervention under limited conditions, special mode / process monitoring and service mode. Thanks to the LED display, the currently selected operating mode can be clearly identified, as can the key’s authorisation level. The operating mode selector switch can be used for applications up to PL d of EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL CL 2 of EN 62061. With the definition of safe operating modes it is possible to harmonise the requirements of operator safety, process security and availability. After all, issues such as manipulation protection, demarcation of areas of responsibility/jurisdictions and clear proof of identity for machines and operators must be safely regulated before a process can be deemed “safe to operate”.

Ultra compact IPC promises extreme space-savings and flexibility Universal C6015 Industrial PC further extends application possibilities of PC-based control hardware

T

he new, ultra compact C6015 Industrial PC is designed for universal use in automation, visualisation and communication tasks, as well as in EtherCAT-based applications. As an exceptionally inexpensive, compact and flexibly-mounted solution, it opens up new application areas for IPC technology, especially those with pronounced cost or space restraints. Fully suited to industrial applications, the multi-core IPC measures just 82 x 82 x 40 mm, demonstrating the extensive scalability of PC-based control technology from Beckhoff.

Smallest control cabinet IPC The ultra compact C6015 IPC is only one third the size of the C6905, previously the smallest control cabinet IPC in the comprehensive Beckhoff portfolio. Price savings of approximately 25 % also place the device well below the previously least expensive x86 PCs from Beckhoff. With these features, automation, visualisation and system-wide communication in small and mid-size applications can be implemented highly cost-effectively with a minimal footprint. As

a result, the compact device opens up areas of use where PC-based control technology has not been used thus far, or where motherboards are commonly integrated as expensive custom solutions.

Uncompromising industrial compatibility Despite its extremely compact and inexpensive implementation, the ultra compact C6015 IPC makes no compromises when it comes to industrial compatibility. This includes the high computing power of the integrated Intel Atom CPU that features up to four processor cores. Moreover, the IPC is designed as a passively cooled device in a robust, aluminium/die-cast zinc housing, offering long-term availability. The device also offers a full range of standard features for industrial environments such as extended operating temperature range up to +55 °C and high resistance to vibration and shock. The C6015 is also extremely flexible with regard to its many installation options. It can be mounted both vertically and horizontally on the rear wall of the control cabinet, or attached to a DIN rail. Even in the tightest installation spaces, this allows various mounting scenarios with flexible orientation of the IPC. Due to the small dimensions of the device, this represents an important feature: when connecting up

to six separate cables, it is crucial with the small design that the connection level can be optimally aligned to the cable routing, which is usually dictated by the machine layout. Apart from that, the full range of equipment and the interface configuration meet the requirements for a universally applied IPC: a 30 GB SSD and Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system support make the C6015 a powerful device even in the basic configuration. Windows 7 and Windows 10 are also optionally possible. Further hardware features include 2 GB DDR3L-RAM (expandable ex-works up to 4 GB), a display port connection, an on-board Dual-Ethernet adapter with 2 x 100/1000Base-T connection and ports for both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.

ome people work with pressure regulators all of their lives and never know what is really going on inside. Tescom spends a great deal of time teaching our distributors and customers about the key operating characteristics of pressure regulators. We’re never surprised at how many engineers and technicians don’t know what droop and decaying inlet are, since so little is published about these effects. Nevertheless, understanding them and using the flow curves to properly evaluate a regulator’s performance for an application is the secret to a trouble-free installation. For the benefit of everyone in the Tescom family, we will review Decaying Inlet in this column, and Droop in a future column.

Definition The decaying inlet characteristic is the amount of change seen on the set point of a pressure reducing regulator as the inlet pressure varies. The decaying inlet characteristic has an inverse relationship between

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

the inlet and outlet pressure of a single stage regulator; as the inlet pressure goes down, the outlet pressure goes up (see chart below).

Considerations We must consider decaying inlet when our pressure source is a compressed source, such as a cylinder, tube trailer, or hydril. When our source gas comes from a compressor, or liquid source such as a dewar, the inlet pressure is fairly stable, and the effect of the decaying inlet characteristic on set point is negligible.

How It Works To see how decaying inlet works, let’s consider a few Tescom regulators for the same application.

Parameters: Our application is a compressed gas that is packaged at 3500 PSIG. Our process requires a 200 PSIG set point. Scenario A: We’ll look at the BB - 1, which is

rated for 3500 PSIG max inlet pressure, and has a PSIG/ 100 PSIG decaying inlet characteristic. Assuming that we start with full inlet pressure of 3500 PSIG, and that the source pressure will decay to 500 PSIG before it is either changed out or recharged, the net change on the inlet of the regulator is 3000 PSIG. If the regulator is initially set for an outlet pressure of 200 PSIG with 3500 PSIG on the inlet, then the outlet pressure will rise by 210 PSIG to 410 PSIG. 3000 PSIG change in inlet pressure ÷ 100 PSIG = Factor of 30; Factor of 30 x 7 PSIG decaying inlet characteristic = 210 PSIG increase. Scenario B: The 44 - 2200 and 44 – 5200 have much lower decaying inlet characteristics (1.5 PSIG/100 PSIG). Using the same operating conditions in the previous example, we find that these regulators will see a pressure rise of 45 PSIG on the outlet, from 200 PSIG to 245 PSIG. Clearly, we get better outlet pressure stability with these regulators. Scenario C: To further reduce the decaying inlet effect, we should consider taking the pressure reduction in two steps, or stages. We typically use a two-stage regulator like the 44 – 3400 to do this. The 44 -3400 is composed of two 44 – 2200 regulators built into the same body and internally connected in series with one another. The decaying inlet characteristic of the 44 – 2200 is 1.5PSIG/100 PSIG. The first stage is preset at a nominal pressure of, say 500 PSIG. The second stage is adjusted to our original 200 PSIG set point. When the source pressure decays from 3500 to 500PSIG, the first stage sees a net decrease of 3000 PSIG on its inlet. The outlet pressure of the first stage will increase by 30PSIG, to 530PSIG. The second stage now sees a net increase of 30 PSIG on its inlet. The outlet of the second stage will go down by. 45PSIG (.3x1.5 decaying inlet characteristic =.45PSIG). To anyone reading a typical pressure gauge on the downstream side of the

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

two-stage regulator, the decaying inlet characteristic is transparent.

Controlling decaying inlet characteristic Two-stage pressure regulators are frequently employed as cylinder regulators for packaged specialty gases. The flows are typically lo, and the two-stage reduction allows the operator to provide stable delivery pressures to the process. There are times when a single - stage regulator is used on the cylinder, which feeds a header in a lab or process facility. Points of use regulators are installed along the header, permitting individual users to adjust their pressures accordingly. The use of a single stage source regulator, along with point-of-use regulators, provides the two-stage reduction necessary for controlling decaying inlet characteristic. For higher flow applications, Tescom offers regulators with balanced main valves, like the 44 - 1300. The 44-1300 is so highly balanced that its decaying inlet characteristic is a very low. 1PSIG/100PSIG with a 0 – 300 PSIG control pressure. For a 3000 PSIG reduction on its inlet, the 44 – 1300 would yield a 3PSIG increase on its outlet, nearly transparent to anyone working with this regulator. The 44-1300 is often used as a tube-trailer regulator because of its high flow, and extremely low decaying inlet characteristic. These qualities allow users to employ only one regulator to provide the required working pressure for their process.

Mistaken Identity Many times, unknowing regulator users observe the decaying inlet characteristic and mistake it for a leaky regulator. In the non-flowing condition, the user observes that the set point has climbed above the original set point, and believes the regulator is creeping. One quick method to confirm that the regulator is not creeping is to observe the gauge reading for a short period of time. If the pressure has stabilized at a few pounds above the original set point, then this is probably decaying inlet. If the pressure is slowly climbing, and not stabilizing, then the regulator seat is contaminated, and the regulator must be removed for servicing. By confirming that the source pressure is a compressed source such as a cylinder, you can quickly correlate the drop in inlet pressure to the increase in set point.

Sizing a regulator There are several reasons to consider the decaying inlet characteristic when evaluating regulator first and foremost, can the system handle the increase in outlet pressure? What if the outlet pressure decays to a point where a relief valve triggers, or rupture disk ruptures, for example? Second, can the process itself tolerate the pressure swing involved? In our BB-1 example mentioned earlier, could the process tolerate a 210PSIG increase on the set point? Are gauges another instrumentation downstream of the regulator sized to handle this increase in pressure? Our responsibility as applications specialists is to consider all possibilities when selecting a regulator for our customer’s application. When we take a few minutes to teach our customer about the nuances of pressure regulators, the customer is grateful, and looks to us as regulator experts, ensuring that we’ll be the first company contacted for future applications. Furthermore, by taking into account the decaying inlet characteristic when you size a regulator, you can avoid any surprises and unhappy customers that would otherwise result when the regulator is placed into service. If you need help with the decaying inlet characteristic of a particular regulator, please call us and we’ll provide you with this information.

seventh axis solves the greatest physiological limit in anthropomorphic robots: the range of action. Rollon, the Italian group specialized in linear handling solutions - present in India with a direct branch in Bangalore - has developed a solution capable of bringing significant advantages to the robotics sector, thus reinforcing its presence in the linear actuator segment. Rollon developed this new system because they are aware of how common anthropomorphic robots have become in recent years due to improved performance, accessibility and competitiveness. The company decided to add a complementary product to this particular solution. Thanks to the know-how developed in the field of actuators and Cartesian robotics, Rollon has, in fact, developed a seventh axis to fill

the physiological void in the anthropomorphic robot: the range of action of its arm. This new product is the right solution for all situations that require an additional axis.

The seventh axis in detail The range of the seventh axis uses the profiles available to the Rollon Group, which come in various cross sections, from 80x80 to 360x200 mm. The sliding system is available in the version with rails and recirculating ball bearing runners or recirculating rollers, while the activation system is with a rectified rack and pinion with inclined teeth. Rollon’s seventh axis also contains adjustable crosspieces for alignment even on surfaces that are not perfectly parallel, and is complete with a cable-bearing chain and bumpers. The cart holding the anthropomorphic robot has

customizable dimensions, on request. The whole system is equipped with accessories like the rack lubrication system and decelerators, if required, according to the client’s needs. As far as performance is concerned, levels range from applications that do not require particularly precise alignment (in the range of tenths), to maximum precision on the stroke system of ±0,04 mm. The system is capable of transporting anthropomorphic robots weighing up to 2,000 Kg,

with extremely long strokes.

Rollon’s development strategy The technology at the foundation of the seventh axis was created with the purpose of completing the range of linear axes, and extending their potential to the heavy duty segment: Rollon then further developed the product, going on to design a dedicated solution. The seventh axis is already available on request, and Rollon is working on industrializing the range, to make it standard for potential clients. The result is one of the most comprehensive ranges of actuators in the world. Today, Rollon offers not only a complete range of actuators, but also the ability to assemble them and install them in Cartesian configurations and to create integrated mechanical systems. Furthermore, the group will soon present a range entirely dedicated to solutions for industrial automation. The seventh axis is part of this strategic context: Rollon’s objective is to increase its presence in the integrated automation market, offering its services as a “global provider” of linear handling solutions.

Instead, they will be able to move freely while still being safe for humans. Hollywood has

reality, at least if the masterminds of the Swiss start-up F&P Robotics have their way. The company’s 20 employees have developed a robot that might revolutionize the working relationship between humans and machines. The robotic arm is 1.1 meters long in the standard version, has a working radius of 80 centimeters and six degrees of freedom. The aluminum body of P-Rob (for Personal Robot) is covered in a high-quality artificial leather skin for a better user experience. With P-Rob, we want to take personal robots to the next level,” says Hansruedi Früh, CEO of F&P Robotics. He even has some clear ideas of potential applications in laboratories and in industrial automation. “The robot could handle containers and vessels or be used in quality control.” With its newly developed software, it can recognize, grip and manipulate objects while being aware of its surroundings, so that it responds correctly when a person approaches.

“Our robot is able to analyze situations to develop and follow what it deems to be the optimal course of action.” Hansruedi Früh, CEO F&P Robotics

However, if the engineers at F&P Robotics are successful, this will only be the beginning. P-Rob might soon work together with other robotic arms or even with people, recognizing the social behavior of humans so that it may function as an autonomous machine. “It is able to

analyze situations to develop and follow what it deems to be the optimal course of action,” says Hansruedi Früh. Quite possibly, these robots will soon be able to autonomously correct malfunctions in a production line instead of shutting down, as robots currently do when an unplanned event occurs. Hansruedi Früh can also imagine his robot working in households, e.g. to prepare food or perform other tasks. “The idea is to build an intelligent, interactive arm that is safe and reliable and will be perceived not as a machine, but as an assistant or friend.”

Brushless DC motors ensure precise movements F&P Robotics powers its robotic arms with brushless DC drives by maxon. Up to eight brushless maxon EC flat motors with diameters of 45 and 90 millimeters and an output power of 70 or 90 W are used for P-Rob’s joints and manipulators. Their power, compact design, and good heat dissipation make these drives an ideal solution for robotic applications. “We think that the flat design in particular is a great advantage,” says Hansruedi Früh. In combination with maxon sensors, the flat motors also make good force sensors, since the torque can easily be determined by measuring the current in the drive. Ease of control and ease of use are among the core design objectives of the young Swiss company. A standard laptop is sufficient to control and program P-Rob. This makes the robot an interesting option for many potential customers. The first few projects with the innovative robotic arm are already on the way, with more to follow soon. For certain, the future will continue to see a growth in robotic applications interacting with humans. F&P Robotics and maxon motor are spearheading this development.

To Measure Organic Carbon In Soil Use Hanna Instruments HI901 S

oil organic carbon is one of the most important soil components. This is because it provides both energy as well as nutrient availability to plants and the soil micro-organisms. Soil organic carbon is the carbon stored in soil organic matter. Soil organic matter is that part of soil matter which exclusively contains non-decomposable plant and animal residues. Soil organic carbon is formed due to decomposition of plant and animal residues, soil micro-organisms, soil biota, mineralization and demineralization, root exudates, decomposable litter etc. Most of the analytical method cannot distinguish between soil organic carbon and soil organic matter. The ease and speed with which SOC becomes available is related to the SOM fraction in which it resides. In this respect, SOC can be partitioned into fractions based on the size and breakdown rates of the SOM in which it is contained. The first three fractions obtained are part of the active pool of SOM. Carbon sources in the active pool are relatively easy to break down. Soil organic matter contains approximately 58% C; therefore, a factor of 1.72 can be used to convert organic carbon to Soil organic matter. There is more inorganic carbon than total organic carbon in calcareous soils. Total organic carbon is expressed as percent C per 100 g of soil. One of the ag-

HANNA suggested the HI901 titrator along with HI1131B general purpose pH electrode. The Walkley Black (WB) method was used for determining Soil Organic Matter which was later converted to organic carbon.HI901 can function in three modes potentiometric titrator, pH meter and ORP meter. A real-time titration curve is also shown on the display; this feature is useful when new methods are tested or when a procedure needs to be optimized. The customizable calculations and Blank value feature would eliminate any additional calculations along with providing accurate and fast results for various titrations. The Clip-Lock system would help to switch titrants quickly and seamlessly without any worry of contamination. The USB, PC and Flash drive ports would make it very easy for transfer and revaluating the data. HI901 can be used for multiple applications including water and waste water analysis.

Technical Details : Threading Dies and Hex Die-nuts • As a rule dies are manufactured solid, pre slotted (Form B). The dies produce male threads within the tolerance zone 6g or medium fit. The narrow web (Slot) on Die can be easily cut off with cut off wheel, when special tolerances are required. The Die will then be adjustable (form A). • Generally two types of dies are in common use , Cut Thread Dies and Ground Thread Dies. Ground Thread Dies have thread lapped and produce good quality threads. They are more accurate and generally used on machines. Cut Thread Dies are used by hand . • Round Dies are used to produce threads where as Hexagonal Die-nuts or Rethreading Hex Die-nuts are used for repairing of damaged or worn out threads. A simple spanner is used to drive the Hex Die-nuts. • nkp (LAPPED) Dies are ground after hardening in exact concentricity to their threads in both the perpendicular and horizontal planes. In good working conditions the Dies will always run true on the work piece. • nkp (LAPPED) Dies produce exceptionally good finish. • The design and heat treatment of dies give a high efficiency in steel up to 750 N/mm2. For steel with tensile strength >750 N/mm2 and shot chipping brass special types Dies are available. • The number of flutes in the Dies depends on the nominal size of the thread and on the application. • The High Speed Steels and special Carbon Steels used for manufacturing of Dies are subject to a strict quality inspection. • The carefully supervised heat treatment produces quality and highly efficient tool life. • The quality and accuracy In size of the thread produced depends essentially on many factors such as machine should be in Al condition preferably with positive feed and chuck having axial and radial compensation. They prevent defective threads. Special attention must be paid to perfect alignment of the work pieces. • True alignment of work piece and Die are of prime importance. • Dies must be sharpened correctly and in due time. Blunt or faulty re-sharpened tools produce defective threads and increase torque up to 100 %, causes excessive wear and breakage. • While producing male threads with Dies it should be noted that the diameter of the bolts / component must always be a little smaller than the nominal size of the thread. While producing ISO male threads within the tolerance position 6g or medium, the negative allowance for the major diameter must be considered (major diameter of bolt = NOMINAL SIZE MINUS ALLOWNCE) • In principle diameter of bolt should be as low as tolerance will allow. • In order to facilitate start of threading, the bolt should be provided with bevel / chamfer. • A perfect alignment of the tools axis to the work piece is very important to produce male threads and good Die life.

ngineers love new ideas and new ways of doing things. But they love old ones, too: those uncelebrated, under-appreciated manufacturing techniques, for example, on which the modern world depends. Italian company, Termomacchine Srl, uses the latest Haas CNC machine tools to make turnkey heat induction systems for clients around the world. Heat induction is a technique almost as old as the industrial revolution itself. And yet, it’s used in

manufacturing everything from silicon chips to airframes for fighter jets. Some of the most commonly employed manufacturing techniques have been used in industry for decades, sometimes centuries. Take, for example, induction heating. The phenomenon was discovered by French physicist Leon Foucault in the mid-nineteenth century – “induce” an alternating current in a conductive object, such as a ferrous metal component, and it heats up! The applications,

especially in modern manufacturing, are myriad.

Perfecting induction-heating systems Based in Piedmont, northern Italy, Termomacchine Srl, has been perfecting induction-heating systems for industrial use for more than 40 years. The company is still run by its founder, Bruno Gili, who, despite being camera shy, is never reluctant to take the spotlight for the sake of his business and its 80 employees. We try to do as much manufacturing in-house as possible,” he says. “Quality is everything for us – and for our customers, most of whom are very well-known companies, in Italy and overseas. We have departments for engineering electrical and electronic systems, mechanics, metallurgy, and quality assurance, of course. Our products are shipped to around 95 countries.”

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com

Most of the company’s orders are for one-off, bespoke, turnkey machines and systems. So, there’s little call for large batches of parts or, therefore, three-shift machining. “We need versatile, simple, reliable machine tools,” says Mr. Gili. “Speed is not particularly important. And, we’re not competing with China or low-cost countries; we have a great deal of expertise, which we apply at all stages of a project, from sales to design, through to service and support.” Bruno Gili has worked with machine tools his entire professional life. In that time, he, like many of his peers, has seen the technology change beyond all recognition – from the advent of tape-based control, to primitive NC, to full multi-axis CNC. When he sings the praises of a particular piece of equipment, he doesn’t do so lightly or without good reason. “We bought a Haas DT-1 Drill/Tap machine,” he says. “It runs 10 to 12 hours a day

cutting aluminium, copper, stainless steel, and even plastic. It’s a truly excellent machine: always reliable, always accurate. It’s a real jewel!” The company also has a Haas TL-2 Toolroom Lathe – which it bought for one particular order. Its latest acquisition is a Haas ST-30Y. “That machine has very useful capacity,” he states. “Although I said we try to make everything in-house, there are some parts we still subcontract. With the ST, we can, hopefully, bring them back so we have more control over quality and delivery.” The ST-30Y is designed to provide heavy cutting ability, extreme rigidity, and high thermal stability. It has a maximum cutting capacity of 457 x 584 mm, with maximum swings of 806 mm over the front apron and 527 mm over the cross slide. The ST-30Y also has high-torque live tooling and a servo-driven C-axis for 4-axis cutting. Mr. Gili repeats that versatility is key at Termomacchine, where each new order is different to the last: “And, we don’t make spare parts for stock,” he adds. “We’ll make a new part when the need arises. It’s about speed and the part being right the first time. We have 2000 machines already in the field, so keeping a stock of spares would be impossible, very expensive.” Thankfully, Italy is a country with many companies just like Termomacchine: specialist, quality-obsessed, with an eye on the future but, just as importantly, with a trust in “old,” reliable techniques that may be uncelebrated, but never cease to be vital in modern manufacturing.

The Demag DMR Modular Rope Hoist: One rope hoist. Two designs. Many possibilities. Whoever needs a new rope hoist is spoilt for choice. With the Demag DMR modular rope hoist, Terex Material Handling has developed a rope hoist that can be precisely configured to meet specific customer needs – with one basic technology.

T

he search for a rope hoist is often like a puzzle. Companies not only have to compare many individual rope hoists with their specifications. Ultimately, they often have to make a compromise, because one rope hoist has the required motor, while a different one is available in exactly the right size, for example. “We solve this problem and offer our customers more flexibility in their choice of

a rope hoist”, explains Dr. Thomas Bönker, Senior Director of the Components Business Line at Terex Material Handling. This is how the Demag DMR modular rope hoist evolved. “Thanks to its modular design, DMR makes it possible to achieve an unparalleled variety of rope hoists with one basic technology”, explains Bönker. “The rope hoist exactly meets our customers’ requirements and offers the perfect solution for their specific applications.” Depending on the specifications, the customer can select the basic design, hoist or crab type, electric equipment, drive method, size and load capacity, for example.

Crane and stationary applications DMR is the first rope hoist that can be built in both C-design and in co-axial design. Both designs have the same rope reeving components and have identical interfaces for covers and other fittings. The compact C-design is particularly suitable for crane manufacturers: the approach dimensions can be reduced since the motor is located beneath the rope drum. This means that the crane can approach closer to the building walls. The co-axial design offers

DECEMBER 2016 | www.engrreview.com


TECH TRENDS 159

a high level of flexibility for stationary applications, for example. In this configuration, the rope drum, gearbox and motor are arranged virtually in one axis, which enables the DMR rope hoist to be easily integrated into virtually any construction.

Improved precision with variable-speed hoist motor Customers can decide on the hoist drive regardless of their choice of control system. A pole-changing motor that has two and 12 pairs of poles can lift loads at two speeds. The lower speed is one sixth of the higher speed. The motor is operated with a line frequency of 50 Hertz. “However, our customers can position their loads even more precisely with a variable-speed hoist motor”, states Bönker. “The four-pole drive is equipped with a frequency inverter, which variably adjusts the motor speed. This enables the crane operator to accelerate fast and, at the same time, set the load down carefully.” For loads that weigh up to 30 per cent of the rated load capacity, the variable-speed drive can lift and lower at higher speeds thanks to its “ProHub” function. • Terex Material Handling equips its DMR modular rope hoists with an asynchronous cylindrical-rotor motor fitted with a disc brake as standard. It features a high motor output of up to 45 kilowatts. • However, customers who opt for the co-axial design receive a second option: the motor with an F10 mechanical microspeed unit. The drive consists of two separate conical-rotor motors for the main and creep lifting motions. The microspeed unit works with one tenth of the speed of the main hoist motor and can position loads more precisely. Conical-rotor motors have excellent braking characteristics. In addition, they automatically brake if the power drops or the motor is switched off. The F10 motor is primarily used for rugged applications with a high number of starts and stops.

Extend as required The “modular” part of the DMR name also means that the rope hoist can be extended by the addition of many accessories. For this reason, the rope hoist has cable connections and the opportunity to add fittings at many positions. For example, a second geared limit switch can be simply fitted on the foot flange and a cover added above the rope drum, or a

www.engrreview.com | DECEMBER 2016


160 TECH TRENDS

limit switch to the electric equipment housing. The low-headroom travelling hoist can be easily converted by the addition of the twowheel “DualDrive” to increase traction for outdoor applications, for example. With this arrangement, the cross-travel motor simultaneously drives two wheels via a belt. Thanks to its predefined mounting position, a second travel drive (“DualDrive Plus”) can also be simply installed.

Technically sophisticated Any downtime in production costs industry a lot of money. For this reason, the engineers at Terex Material Handling also took a close look at the component parts of the DMR rope hoist and optimised them in comparison with previous models. “We have also put a lot of work into

the technical details of the DMR rope hoist to improve the reliability of our rope hoists even further”, states Dr. Thomas Bönker. “This resulted in many innovations that provide for even more cost-effective operation.” One example of this is the coupling between the motor and gearbox, which absorbs sudden forces from the motor, thus extending the service life of the rope hoist. Furthermore, the motor can be removed without the need to drain the gearbox of oil. Various other components also help to ensure a longer service life. The oil lubrication of the gearbox will last for ten years and is also kinder to the environment thanks to the oil quantity, which is reduced by 30 per cent. The top and bottom blocks feature larger rope sheaves than the previous rope hoist models. In this way, rope wear is also minimised even over longer periods of service. In addition, the rope guide offers reduced wear: it is made of tough, acid-resistant plastic. If, however, it is necessary to replace wearing parts, this can be accomplished quickly by means of the standardised interfaces between the various modules. The rope lead-in guard is particularly easy to replace. It consists of two parts and can be replaced without the need for the service technician to remove the rope. [Contributed by Terex India Pvt.

WELDING

Pulsed MIG/MAG welding and its advantages over conventional MIG/MAG processes P

ulsed MIG/MAG welding is a variant of the conventional MIG/MAG welding process in which the current is pulsed. Pulsing was introduced originally for control of metal transfer at low mean current levels by imposing short duration high current pulses. The cycle consists of applying the repeated pulse current over a constant background current: Modern welding sets permit the use of a wide range of pulse amplitudes, durations and waveforms at frequencies from a few Hertz to a few hundred Hertz. Pulse amplitude and duration are best combined to melt and detach a single droplet of the same/slightly smaller diameter as the electrode wire. Selection of pulse parameters for a given wire feed speed is a complex operation. Pulse height and duration are a function of wire composition, diameter and to a lesser extent, shielding gas composition. This has lead to the advent of Synergic welding sets. Synergic MIG/MAG (GMAW) welding is a variant of pulsed MIG/ MAG welding. A synergic welding set provides

unit current pulses to detach identical molten droplets of predetermined volume from the electrode wire, combined with the other parametric relationships necessary for stable wire burn off. Unit pulses are unique to a given material and wire diameter and their details are programmed into a synergic welding set. Modern sets contain a variety of consumable and wire diameter combinations, including programmes for flux and metal-cored consumables. The three essential characteristics of synergic operation are: • a) Pulse parameters are selected automatically. • b) Pulse frequency or duration is directly related to wire feed rate. • c) Electronic control of parameters ensures uniform penetration and weld bead profile. In practical terms, this allows an operator to pre-select wire material and diameter once for any welding operation, then adjust the one control that governs wire feed rate. The ‘one knob’ operation synonymous with this type of power source is the principal advantage of such a system compared to conventional non-synergic sets, which require that the pulse parameters (pulse frequency, peak/ background current etc.) be individually

set for a given wire feed speed. Thus synergic welding sets offer the advantages associated with pulsed MIG/MAG welding, combined with a ‘welder friendly’ control system. Synergic control is also used in conventional MIG/ MAG, in which the voltage is adjusted in relation to the wire feed. It is now possible to buy a ‘synergic wire feeder’ which performs this function in conjunction with a standard rectifier power source.

Advantages provided by pulsing machines include: 1) Wire and gas savings: Pulsed MIG machines offer a wider operating range because they extend the low and high range of each wire diameter. For instance, before the operator would have to stock .035”, .045” and .052” wire diameters for varying applications, but with Pulsed MIG, .045” can be extended on the low end and top end range so that it can be used for a variety of applications. What this means is that rather than having two or three different sized wires, an operator would only require one. Having one wire type minimizes inventory costs and reduces changeover times. The same is true with shielding gas – one gas can reach both the low and high ranges of the application. In addition, the different types of spare parts (gun, gun tips, liners, etc.) are decreased for additional cost savings.

2) Spatter and fume reduction Compared to Conventional MIG, Pulsing offers reduced spatter and fume. Reduction in spatter translates into significant cost savings because

www.engrreview.com | DECEMBER 2016


162 TECH TRENDS

more of the melted wire is applied to the weld joint, not as surface spatter on the product and surrounding fixtures. This also means less clean-up time. A reduction in the welding fumes creates a safer and healthier environment for the entire plant or shop.

3) Heat reduction Pulsing offers controlled heat input leading to less distortion and improved overall quality and appearance which means fewer production problems. This is especially important with stainless, nickel and other alloys that are sensitive to heat input.

4) Improved productivity Pulsed MIG offers high deposition rates. In addition, since the new machines are simpler and adaptive, it is easier to weld with pulsed MIG than other transfer methods, less time is spent training.

5) Better quality All these advantages of Pulsed MIG outlined above result in overall better quality of the finished and a more stable arc. In addition, operators are receiving a better quality working environment since they are not dealing with fume, spatter and extra clean-up or grinding time. One more benefit is that synergic power sources allow for these high quality welds to be achieved by those with relatively less training.

Pulsed MIG Compared to Other Transfer Methods Short Circuit In short circuit, the wire touches the work piece and shorts to itself. This is the coldest form of welding that still offers good fusion. Short circuit allows operators to weld on both thick and thin material in all positions. It also has the benefit of a small, quickly solidifying puddle. Its disadvantages include limited wire feed speed, and deposition rates. There is also a danger of “cold lapping” on thicker metals. This is where there is not enough energy in the puddle to fuse properly. Short circuit also produces an increased amount of spatter over the other transfer methods.

Q. What is the approximate size of the Indian forklift truck industry and what have been the recent growth trends? The size of the forklift industry is approximately 8000-9000 units per annum. The industry has been almost flat for the past three years. In India, as in most other countries, the growth of the material handling equipment industry is tied to that of the manufacturing and trading activity. There is a strong correlation between Manufacturing GDP growth and MHE sales. Besides, MHE is also linked to the distribution and logistics chain. These two sectors are yet to see

government action in terms of GST implementation, land reforms and labour reforms. These have a big impact on manufacturing, logistics and distribution industries. The government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign is expected to spur local manufacturing thereby leading to setting-up of new facilities which will require forklifts to support operations. Also, the huge growth being witnessed in the warehousing sector especially to support the booming ecommerce segment will be another key driver for growth in forklifts industry.

Q. Tell us about the various forklift trucks made by Godrej and your major focus areas. We offer a wide spectrum of solutions across equipment types, capacities and technologies. Our range includes electric and diesel counterbalance forklifts up to 25 tonne capacity, warehouse trucks and special trucks for specific applications. We also manufacture attachments of our own design to address a wide range of handling needs besides offering attachments made by international specialists when the application demands. We also represent global players like Crown Equipment and Hubtex among others, in India. As market leaders we strive to offer the right

cals, automobiles, heavy & light engineering.

Q. How do electrically-driven forklifts compare with CNG/LPG ones in terms of cost efficiency, power and environmental-friendliness? At G&B, we manufacture both battery powered and IC engine forklifts. Depending on the usage and the requirement of the customer both type of forklifts have their own advantages. Initial purchase price of an electrically powered forklift is higher vis-à-vis comparable engine powered forklift but has relatively low operating cost compared to the latter. These are excellent for indoors use and also easier to operate. The added advantage of zero carbon emission makes it environment friendly. In a price sensitive nation like India, since the initial cost for internal combustion forklifts is low, it is preferred by small and medium size companies. On the other hand, the electrically-driven forklift trucks are growing at a fast pace in the developed countries due to rising consciousness about the environment and lower ownership costs.

Q. What is your view on the availability of skilled operators for forklift trucks? Yes there is a lack of skilled forklift operator in the industry. In recent years, the OEMs have recognized the need to train more operators. Godrej Material Handling has set-up their own in-house training center and training modules wherein operators are trained. Godrej Material Handling business of Godrej & Boyce recently concluded the training of its first batch of women forklift drivers. Women forklift drivers seem to be non-existent in India and this may be the very first time such training has been conducted by any company. The training will open new career options for these women. Being a market leader, we consider it as a responsibility to spread the importance of right operator skills especially in the lift truck driving domain by spreading the message: • Safety of Man, Machine and Materials • Higher productivity, Better Efficiency.

Why the Guedu

VERTICAL DRYER

is an advantageous alternative technology This new solution from De Dietrich Process System adds an important benefit for drying of powders in process industries, cosmetics and food

R Benefits • Vacuum drying technology allows savings due to the total cycle time reduction • Savings are gained from the improved heat transfer during drying • Mechanical mixing during drying improves product homogeneity

ecently, the Guedu vertical dryers have been installed by several clients, providing decisive quality and productivity improvements. The vertical dryer is unlike hot air dryers and tray dryers. The powder is stirred under vacuum, that allows an improvement of the drying time by a factor 2 to 10 compared to tray dryers, and a total cycle time reduction by a similar ratio (by reducing the necessary handling). In fact, the vacuum drying technology allows savings due to the total cycle time reduction (a single pan dryer can replace several tray dryers) and also savings from the improved heat transfer during drying (reducing utilities costs).

Pristine quality The mechanical mixing during drying improves

product homogeneity. Therefore, at the end of the cycle, the product comes out perfect evenly dried, with residual moistures below 0.1% where required.

A ready-made Solution De Dietrich Process Systems is able to supply its customer not only with the appropriate drying technology, but also to design and supply the peripheral equipment, support structure as well as the automation and control systems. To assist in the choice amongst its various drying equipment, De Dietrich offers to perform trials in its test hall in Semur, France.

The ultra compact C6015 IPC is only one third the size of the C6905, previously the smallest control cabinet IPC in the comprehensive Beckhoff portfolio. Price savings of approximately 25 % also place the device well below the previously least expensive x86 PCs from Beckhoff. With these features, automation, visualisation and system-wide communication in small and mid-size applications can be implemented highly cost-effectively with a minimal footprint. As a result, the compact device opens up

areas of use where PC-based control technology has not been used thus far, or where motherboards are commonly integrated as expensive custom solutions.

Uncompromising industrial compatibility Despite its extremely compact and inexpensive implementation, the ultra compact C6015 IPC makes no compromises when it comes to industrial compatibility. This includes the high computing power of the integrated Intel® Atom™ CPU that www.engrreview.com | DECEMBER 2016

features up to four processor cores. Moreover, the IPC is designed as a passively cooled device in a robust, aluminium/die-cast zinc housing, offering long-term availability. The device also offers a full range of standard features for industrial environments such as extended operating temperature range up to +55 °C and high resistance to vibration and shock. The C6015 is also extremely flexible with regard to its many installation options. It can be mounted both vertically and horizontally on the rear wall of the control cabinet, or attached to a DIN rail. Even in the tightest installation spaces, this allows various mounting scenarios with flexible orientation of the IPC. Due to the small dimensions of the device, this represents an important feature: when connecting up

to six separate cables, it is crucial with the small design that the connection level can be optimally aligned to the cable routing, which is usually dictated by the machine layout. Apart from that, the full range of equipment and the interface configuration meet the requirements for a universally applied IPC: a 30 GB SSD and Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system support make the C6015 a powerful device even in the basic configuration. Windows 7 and Windows 10 are also optionally possible. Further hardware features include 2 GB DDR3L-RAM (expandable ex-works up to 4 GB), a display port connection, an onboard Dual-Ethernet adapter with 2 x 100/1000Base-T connection and ports for both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.

Elesa+Ganter enlarging its range of pins with the pullring versions GN 214.2 / 214.3 Pins are usually found wherever constructions need to be set up, dismantled or changed quickly. This is why cotter pins with various designs and dimensions have long been part of the Elesa+Ganter range of elements. One typical application is their use in height adjustment. Elesa+Ganter has now once more enlarged its product variety by adding the pin types GN 214.2 and GN 214.3. Instead of the handling knob, they now feature a pullring – a design which is always advantageous in confined spaces because the ring is simply dropped sideways. The pullring also allows the easy attachment of the GN 111.2 retaining cable which prevents the loss of the pin. The new pin is available both in steel design (GN 214.2) and in stainless steel design (GN 214.3) if this special application is required for use in corrosive atmosphere or in areas with higher requirements in

terms of hygiene. Both variants are available in pin diameters ranging from 6 to 16 millimetres. As with all Elesa+Ganter pins, the locking pawls can be released by a red and readily identifiable polyamide pushbutton. The square shape of the locking pawls made of stainless sheet steel creates a linear contact area (instead of the point contact in balltype locking pins) which is capable of taking relatively high axial forces and so preventing the inadvertent loosening of the connection. The locking pawls will be unlocked only after manually operating the pushbutton, allowing the locking pawl to be pulled off. This principle is also used in Types GN 114.2 (steel with PA knob), GN 114.3 (stainless steel with PA knob) and GN 114.6 in all stainless steel design.

For more information

The new Embedded PCs use Intel® Xeon® D processors, each with 4, 8 or 12 CPU cores of the 5th generation Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, and manufactured using 14 nm process technology. Three units are being introduced, which differ with respect to the CPU used: • • •

CX2042 | Intel® Xeon® D-1529 @1.3 GHz, 4 Cores CX2062 | Intel® Xeon® D-1539 @1.6 GHz, 8 Cores CX2072 | Intel® Xeon® D-1559 @1.5 GHz, 12 Cores

The 4, 8 and 12 processor cores offer ample processing power and parallelism, even for extremely demanding automation tasks. Optimal multi-core support from TwinCAT 3 automation software makes it possible to distribute the individual tasks of a control process across the available CPU cores. This means that the computing load can be planned in fine detail to achieve the bestpossible processor efficiency. Another important feature

enabling the performance increase is the separate graphics card. Since Intel® Xeon® CPUs do not incorporate graphics cards, the CX20x0 devices integrate a separate graphics card, which is equipped with 2 GB RAM. Separating the CPU RAM from the GPU RAM prevents unwanted interactions between the two computing units. The high power density created by the CPU and GPU makes it necessary to incorporate a fan for heat dissipation. A cable-free plug-in connection facilitates easy fan replacement if required, and the regulated fan speed can be queried in the PLC. All basic interfaces of the CX2000 series are also available in the new units: 2 x GBit Ethernet, 4 x USB 3.0, DVI-I (including VGA) as well as the flexibly-configured, factory-fitted multi-option interface. All existing CX2000 plug-in modules – those attached from the left and right – can also be used on the new devices to ensure maximum flexibility.
