HARTING Cheering the National Handball Team

 

HARTING Cheering the National Handball teamWhen the German national handball team hits the pitch at the World Championship in Egypt (January 13-31, 2021), the entire HARTING Technology Group will once again be rooting for them.

SmartROC D65 – Key to Kaunis Iron

SmartROC D65Just two years after Kaunis Iron started production of iron ore in Kaunisvaara, the company is planning a new open pit mine. An important part of that plan is SmartROC D65 rigs – and an arrangement where the rigs are regularly serviced on site by Epiroc personnel.

The November sky is clear in Kaunisvaara, and the morning sun has lit up the north side of the mine. Half-way down into the mine, two SmartROC D65 drill rigs are working, and in front of them are two rows with sticks. They have been stuck into the ground, each in its own drill hole with yellow plastic tubing, which makes the hole easier to load.

JAEBy Eric Martin, C.E.T., JAE Automation

Conversations about automation technology and design often focus on one thing – the technology itself. We think of the high-tech robots, the automated conveyors, or the precision welding machines that make it possible for factories to operate more efficiently, productively, and safely.

However, any discussions around automation technology need to include the most important element – the people.

Industrial PC in IP 65 for Direct Integration Into the Machine

Industrial PC in IP 65Following the current trend, this space-saving IP 65/67 Industrial PC hardware with flexible mounting options is ideally suited for implementing advanced Industrie 4.0 solutions. A wide variety of onboard interfaces enables the networking of machine or plant sections in the cloud or other networks.

Moreover, the integrated EtherCAT P connection offers undreamt-of possibilities for the direct connection of actuators and sensors via EtherCAT P Box modules with IP 67 protection. The decentralized solving of complex diagnostic or condition monitoring tasks is thus possible.
