Increase production flexibility with better batch management

Increase production flexibility with better batch management
As manufacturers across a broad range of industries look to optimise batch management, ease of control implementation and recipe functionality is a key concern. In-line with this requirement Progea’s Movicon.NExT SCADA software now provides advanced management modules that make it far easier to create and edit complex batch processes.

Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers

Design engineers need a scalable network of small 3D printers
3D printing is already revolutionising the world of design engineering and manufacturing, from aerospace through to the automotive and medical industries. Yet many UK companies, especially small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), are still reluctant to adopt this technology, often due to cost. This is where scalability comes in. Here Chris Elsworthy, MD and Lead Mechanical Engineer, CEL-UK explains why a scalable network of small 3D printers is what today's design engineers need.

Key considerations when it comes to designing security devices

Key considerations when it comes to designing security devices
In 1880 the first movie cameras were developed by Thomas Edison and William Dickson. The seed for video surveillance had been planted. During World War 2, miniature portable cameras appeared, making covert surveillance possible for the military. Shortly after, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) was first used in Germany to monitor the launch of V2 rockets. And the rest, as they say, is history. But the history of surveillance is far from over.

The evolving role of the ‘Design Engineer’

The evolving role of the ‘Design Engineer’
Someone, somewhere, must be throwing one hell of a party. In the last few years the number of cyber-attacks has exploded - this year 55% of firms have reported attacks, up from 40% last year. Here Andy Wakeley, Customer Channel Marketing Manager at Schneider Electric looks at the correlation between cyber attacks and the role of the design engineer.

New generation E4Q energy chain for unsupported travels

New generation E4Q energy chain for unsupported travels
Inspired by nature, designed for industry: this is the new E4Q energy chain from igus for unsupported and long travels. The chain links of the e-chain have a pebble-shaped design for weight reduction and a completely new crossbar locking concept, which enables the energy chain to be assembled by hand in seconds.

Predict service life of wear-resistant 3D-printed gears

Predict service life of wear-resistant 3D-printed gears
How long will my 3D-printed my gear last? To answer this question, igus has developed the online gear service life calculator for its 3D-printed gears made of the SLS high-performance plastic, iglidur I3. In just a few simple steps, the engineer enters the gear’s tooth module, number of teeth, width and inner diameter.

Is stackable 3D printers the answer to faster and cheaper design?

Is stackable 3D printers the answer to faster and cheaper design?
Stackable 3D printers may hold the key to a faster yet more cost-effective design and manufacturing process. But what is stackable 3D printing? And how does it work to benefit businesses and meet their printing needs? To answer these questions, CEL has released a new white paper; ‘Stackable: the key to faster and more accurate 3D printing’.
