Applied Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) completed two major projects at Detroit-based Wolverine Packing Co., based in Michigan.
Digitally transforming operations in the control room can provide new methods for solving problems and improving optimization with increased automation. A refinery projected almost $200,000 in energy savings for five heat-exchangers in 90 days.
More additive manufacturing is expected, lower costs, higher speeds with 20 part numbers available. Depending on the complexity of the part, the technology can print 60 to 100 times faster than other laser-based printing processes, allowing high-volume production.
While manufacturing continues to grow in the U.S, concerns remain about the global economy and how regulations might impact or hamper the industry's growth
Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) provided benchmarking factors to improve operational and financial performance, as well as recruiting and retention for engineering and technology personnel.
HART technology has been developed, alongside other technologies, to allow it to continue to meet the needs of the industry marketplace.
An encoder part number reference website, www.autotechsmartencoder.net, deciphers more than 200,000 size-25 encoder combinations, gives descriptions and replacement options with next-day delivery for orders placed by 6 p.m. CST; 10 two-button-programmable encoders are said to cover all combinations.
