Panel Builder System Integrator

November 9, 2020

Wood’s role in support of Ontario’s bold plans to increase urban mobility is expanding with the addition of six new contract awards from Metrolinx that are essential to the ongoing growth and upgrade of the province’s transit network.

Metrolinx, the regional public transportation agency, is delivering one of the largest infrastructure programs in North America and creating an integrated transportation system that connects more communities, while supporting a higher quality of life, a more prosperous economy and a healthier environment for the Canadian province’s growing population.

Wood was recently selected to provide solutions for several new projects. This work includes leading design on two bridge projects: Rouge River, which involves the structural rehabilitation of an approximately 120 year old railway bridge to enhance its resilience and extend its service life; and, the design for replacement of the Birchmount Bridge to achieve additional track capacity and future system electrification. Wood was also awarded new contracts for the Barrie Railway Corridor and the subway expansion program.

“As an established and trusted partner of Metrolinx, we are proud of our continued role in helping to make Ontario’s vision for the future – a reality. These new contracts are a real testament to the strength of Wood’s sustainable infrastructure capabilities, as well as our specialized environmental, geotechnical and design expertise – and the proven commitment of our teams on the ground,” said Lytle Troutt, president of Wood’s environment and infrastructure business in the Americas.

“At any one time, we are working on 20 to 30 projects related to major capital expansion or infrastructure enhancements for this impressive undertaking, which aims to create a world-class transportation system in Canada’s largest and fastest-growing urban region.”

Joe Sczurko, CEO of Wood’s Technical Consulting Solutions business, added, “Metrolinx is a respected and long-standing client for Wood. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be a key technical and project management partner with them.”

Metrolinx and its partners are working to double the use of transit across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area by increasing capacity, making it accessible to more residents and more convenient for commuters – through integrated mobility solutions that significantly reduce travel times and make it easier to get to where you want to go. In addition to new transit lines and extensions, plans include new and upgraded stations plus hundreds of kilometers of new track.

GO Transit, Metrolinx’s operational network of train lines and bus routes, already services a population of nearly 8 million people across more than 11,000 square kilometers of Ontario. The agency’s goal is to eventually run faster, more energy efficient electric trains and increase weekly trips from 1,500 to more than 6,000, with two-way service availability that runs around-the-clock.

Made4CNC Launches World’s First Completely Automatic CNC Door Opening Solution for Robots

Made4CNC Door Opening Solution for RobotsOdense, Denmark, August 23, 2021: Currently only a small percentage of the industry's CNC machines are automatically fed components. Most of the world's CNC machines rely on either the operator or the robotic arm having to physically open and close the machines' heavy doors every few minutes. Investing in a new fully automatic CNC machine or upgrading an older model can be a tall order, both in practical and financial terms.

Made4CNC's first official product, the new Safedoor SD100 removes the barriers to the automation of component feeding at machine shops. Safedoor SD100 opens CNC doors that are up to 1 meter wide and weigh 400 kg, at a speed of 500 mm/s.

Mitsubishi Electric Releases CNC Offset Manager Software

PBUS-31-Mitsubishi-CNCOffsetManagerSoftware-400.jpg

Mitsubishi Electric is announcing the release of its CNC Offset Manager software for remote modification of computerized numerical control (CNC) tool and work offsets. With the push towards automation and central control, machining facilities are searching for more efficient ways to manage their CNC machines. The software can introduce increased efficiency in multiple ways: for instance, it allows one operator to manage more machines, speeding up machine setup and tool wear changes, or adjusts for parts out of tolerance, as well as centralizing this work so operators don’t need to move between machines or into robot cells. CNC Offset Manager is thus geared towards production managers and supervisors on factory floors across various industries, as well as towards CNC automation software companies.
