How Sandvik has encouraged steel circularity

How Sandvik has encouraged steel circularity
Extractive industries such as mining are responsible for 50% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. However, recycling steel from mining equipment could make all the difference. Here, Anders Åkesson, QM EHS Manager, Crushing & Screening at Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology (SMRT), Sandvik Group, explains how Sandvik has encouraged steel circularity in the mining industry.

The intricacies of restricted access drilling

The intricacies of restricted access drilling
Most people don't link geotechnical drilling to an urban setting, but sometimes, the connection needs to be made. There are plenty of scenarios where a regular rig won’t work, making restricted access drilling the perfect option. It’s natural to think of busy towns and cities when considering a site with restricted access, but this form of drilling is frequently used in more rural settings too. If it’s difficult to access the site, then a specialist, restricted access rig is the answer.

Achieving process optimisation through simulation

Achieving process optimisation through simulation
Process optimisation links all the machining operations end-to-end to evaluate and improve the entire manufacturing process. Each step along the way, through engineering, design, CAM programming and machining and up to the final quality and inspection phase, can and should be optimised.

Complete solution needed for energy supply system

Complete solution needed for energy supply system
Large gantry-style milling machines are the specialty of machine builder Kao Ming from Taiwan. The long travels of up to 13m provide challenging requirements for the supply of power and data. By choosing the guidelok from igus, Kao Ming decided in favour of a system that is reliable, robust and operates without support.

Vibration analysis: Where to start?

Vibration analysis: Where to start?
Vibration analysis is a useful way to monitor machine health. Many plants have implemented regular vibration analysis plans to ensure the condition of their machines is being checked at regular intervals and so, if an issue comes to light after spectral analysis, a solution can be pursued.

Machine tool automation – does one size fit all?

Machine tool automation – does one size fit all?
The short answer is ‘no’. However, one automation company offers an array of robotic solutions for improved manufacturing efficiency, that can be scaled to fit almost any application, so yes, and that company is REM Systems Erowa. For over 30 years Erowa has been providing factory automation to most of the world’s advanced manufacturing industry sectors.
