Beyond Industry 4.0: bringing products to market faster

Beyond Industry 4.0: bringing products to market faster
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has set up the Global Lighthouse Network - a group of 69 factories that form a shining example of superior technology integration and optimised processes. With the fourth industrial revolution well underway, facilities other than Lighthouse factories must also invest in equipment that can bring them up to speed. Here, Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at Electro Mechanical Systems Ltd, explores how powerful and high precision micromotors can advance automated equipment.

Keeping the noise down

Keeping the noise down
The world’s loudest sound was the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883, which was clearly heard 3,000 miles away - that’s more than the width of the United States. While micromotors won’t reach this extreme volume, their noise can still be problematic, such as in loud medical equipment that triggers patient anxiety. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explores some applications where motors must keep the noise down.

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control
Long takes, when done properly, are masterstrokes of cinema. However, just a single mistake can mean scrapping reams of footage. To ensure filming equipment can keep up with the director’s cinematic vision, cameras must perform precise and perfectly repeatable actions. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explains how servo motors help achieve process precision both on and off camera.

Pick it, place it, ship it, all automatic

Pick it, place it, ship it, all automatic
Warehousing is becoming an increasingly automated system, with robots storing, retrieving and delivering packages day in, day out. In fact, some warehouses use aircraft control style systems to organise and control their robots, due to the complexity of the system. As such, precision is fundamental for the successful running of automated warehouses. Here Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at EMS Ltd, explains why it is imperative that warehouse robots are installed with high precision actuation.
