A University of Virginia Miller Center commission released a report of actionable ideas on creating manufacturing jobs, which have been an engine of middle-class employment throughout U.S. history. Board members said the goal is to produce quality employees.
According to OSHA, slips, trips and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. But just because flooring is constantly underfoot doesn't mean it’s also constantly top-of-mind. How can your company ensure safety through safe flooring?
The soft bristles are designed for brushing dry, fine particles, such as dust, flour, icing or sugar. It is also used as a dustpan brush on floors.
This wall bracket for tool storage is a flexible hanging bracket designed to extend tool life and improve hygiene in production, restaurant and kitchen, retail and municipal environments. Product has a 10kg load capacity.
Condensation can pose several problems, including damaging corrosion of pipes. Condensation can also build up and drip down into the food processing system, threatening contamination of the end product.
Studies have proven that airborne pathogenic contamination of food products at the processing level is a safety concern, and can be the major cause of microbiological contamination. Odors, air pollutants, smoke, mold, bacteria and viruses are all plant air issues.
This powder is a disinfectant proven to eliminate PEDv in controlled environments. Product is an EPA registered sanitizer that can either be dissolved in water and applied to the surfaces as a spray/foam, or the product can be used as a dry floor surface disinfectant applied to surfaces as a dry granule for slow release.
The new HG44e (4-cylinder) and HG88e (8-cylinder) compressors are equipped with the newly developed valve-plate technology, which enables greater refrigeration duty while operating with less power consumption.
The belt-loading systems included in the technology fully support product portions throughout the transfer and loading process ensuring consistent performance. The system makes the final correction to each row alignment just prior to packager to ensure product placement is precise.
The software analyzes the detection signal and uses an algorithm to calculate the signal strength based on a function of time and amplitude. This can improve performance in certain applications, including large bags, by up to 40 percent.
The product features an integral anti-creep linear guideway, which can increase uptime by as much as 15 percent in high duty cycle applications by eliminating the need for homing moves typically required to reset standard crossed roller bearing retainer cages.
Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for workers. These operating tips are critical steps that a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) operator can take to reduce the likelihood of a potential fall.
A recent study says 75 percent of manufacturers use robots at some point along their manufacturing line, including processing operations involving direct food contact. Use of robotics has more than tripled for some industries in the past five years.
Re-usuable working platform is for use inside conical shaped vessels. Product is modular and designed individually for fast installation. The platform can be installed in almost all conical process vessels, such as reactors, Nauta-style mixer/dryers and single shaft dryers and mixers.
Product is specifically designed to monitor equipment, assets, and processes for heat issues and fire detection in potentially explosive environments, as well as prevent the thermal camera itself from becoming an ignition source.
A matched motor/drive combination package allows an OEM the option to select the optimum solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial motion control applications from a single source.
The OLK-402 Industrial Leak Detection Kit pinpoints any leaks in water and water/glycol-based industrial systems.
Company’s new industrial vacuum cleaners feature InfiniClean™ automatic filter cleaning system is a self-contained, automated filter purging system requiring no external compressed air supply, secondary power source or cleaning actions by the operator.
Social researchers say we can suffer from “decision fatigue,” where repeated judgments deplete our mental resources to the point that it influences our next decisions. One result is our tendency to simplify decisions by accepting status quo or whatever is easy.
The Canvas survey points to an increasingly mobile manufacturing workforce looking to extend more day-to-day business processes to mobile devices, and that structured and unstructured data collection and collaboration apps are rising to the top of wish lists.
Storm season is upon the United States. Do you have an emergency plan and the trained employees to carry it out? Tim Williams, senior project manager at Process Safety Management (PSM), has a primer to help ensure that yours meets regulated safey needs.
Not all manufacturers have the budgets to implement a dedicated predictive maintenance system, but they do have smart devices that can be incorporated into daily use, raising the overall effectiveness of even a small maintenance team.
The recognition that a world-class MRO operation is a necessary component of reliable equipment — and a reliable plant — is essential. Subsequently, awareness is not enough. The ability to actually implement change is critical to produce a competitive and reliable product.
LISTA sheet steel drawer cabinets offer made-to-measure top quality for professional use.
Electrical hazards exist because the modern workplace is filled with electricity-reliant equipment and gadgets. However, a sensible safety plan that addresses equipment, environment and operator issues may reduce the hazards and lead to lower electrical accident rates.
