Sumitomo Drive Technologies and Lafert Group will be jointly exhibiting a new version of their drive for applications in automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems at Logimat 2023 from April 25 to 27 in Stuttgart, Germany (Booth F45, Hall 6). The Smartris Drive Compact is a compact drive that is just a quarter of the size of the standard model.
There is an increasing trend toward integrating evermore compact smart components into larger, more complex motion control systems, and advances in AI, ML, and IIoT are helping with the speed and quality of their adoption.
In every industry, the phrase "time is money" has never been more accurate. With unscheduled downtime haunting every operation, being prepared, and using various Condition Monitoring techniques is your first line of defense. Some companies use temperature monitoring, vibration monitoring, and noise monitoring--but what about oil analysis?
Analyzing the oil is just the first step since a one-time collection will only show you so much about your gearbox. The key to correctly using your oil analysis data is to trend the data over time.
