Profitability is increasingly driven by the efficiency of installed process control and automation technology. From thinking robots to remote management of energy resources to maximise efficiency, to instruments for leak detection, to transmitters and controls that talk to your machines, analyse and drive their performance and give you early warning of impending problems.
Each month NZEN presents a case study of a successful design engineering application and asks providers how it was done and how it can be replicated in your business. While design engineering functions are a product of the world’s leading software developers R&D, the success of their application in the field belongs to the creative use of the equipment by engineers and designers.
Our focus here covers people, places and working conditions. We report on Health and safety, ventilation, heating and air conditioning. New technologies in waste management and preventative maintenance for increased production and worker safety. We take the best of sister publication Industrial Safety News updating critical data and regulations. We display the profitable face of an environmentally safe workplace.
There is a truly bewildering range of options when it comes to machinery purchases - and little independent analyses. In NZEN there will be monthly presentations on the latest non CNC and CNC machines plus milling machines and centres and EDM machinery.
Getting a handle on the available choices in banking, finance and insurance is essential. NZEN 2012 will contain useful information to help management - from recruitment, training, productivity and the law - to finding the money or backup to let you compete in a tight marketplace.
Composites have unique properties such as superior tensile strength, high strength-to-weight ratios and are resistant to corrosion and chemical degradation. They are often use in conjunction with - or instead of - traditional materials like steel, concrete and timber, which themselves are being applied in new imaginative ways.
The wide variety of power systems, motors, pumps, valves and filters on the market is creating confusion about performance and capability, price and reliability and how suitable a product is for the task at hand. Reports prepared each by journalists and specialists on the NZEN team detail the best on offer, and outline what they are capable of achieving.
Machinery and welding equipment remain at the heart of the engineering industry. We bring you the latest on robots and process control equipment that are essential to remain competitive. We also focus on the latest materials handling equipment plus other essentials for the modern factory. We bring you developments on preventative maintenance that converts into bottom line results.
