1. Your questions answered: How to Become a Preventive Maintenance All-Star

On September 11, Plant Engineering presented a webinar, “How to Become a Preventive Maintenance All-Star,” sponsored by Dude Solutions.

2. Maintain secondary equipment via IIoT

Nonproduction equipment like dust collectors compete for maintenance attention; IIoT can help identify issues before they become larger problems.

3. Rapid overhaul of generator rotor needed due to lack of maintenance

Carrying out routine maintenance on a large turbine generator calls for expertise as well as the experience to achieve an efficient and cost-effective project.

4. Selecting HMI remote access options

Two leading methods exist for establishing mobile human-machine interface (HMI) connectivity; one providing more cybersecurity. See table comparison of remote access HMI connections.

5. Manufacturing, automation leaders inspire, mentor

Achievements in manufacturing and communities inspire mentors and younger engineers seeking to create greater efficiency, optimization and a brighter future.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on plantengineering.com, Sept. 23-29, for articles published within the last two months.
