Teseo keeps the pressure up for British industrySean Connolly, Sales Director, Teseo UK LtdTeseo is the premium Italian manufacturer of Aluminium HBS - Hollow Bar System- the most efficient compressed airline system in the world that enhances pressure balance, reduces pressure reduction and reduces energy costs. The modular design with multi-component inventory means that the system is quickly and economically installed. One of several unique points is the ability to "hot-drill" the installed system to add new drops or connectors without shutting down the whole system. The value of smooth bore, low interference connections is that a small energy source can maintain high pressure at the furthest point of a Teseo network.
11:30 - 11:50
Cloud based solutions for industrial applicationsDavid Folley, Sales and Business Development Manager, HMS IndustrialA short overview of how cloud-based computing can be used for remote monitoring industrial applications.

Creating a simple and cost effective automation system is easyRichard Taylor, Regional Sales Manager, Lenze LtdCreating simple automation systems using the latest in high performance drive and automation products is not a difficult task. Goals are smaller panel size, faster build times, easier commissioning and of course lower purchase cost. All without compromising performance.This presentation illustrates the easy creation of a system using the latest in servo drives, compact and low-cost controllers for logic, motion and visualisation, with high-speed I/O and all linked by real-time bus. Further system simplification is achieved through building safety technology into the drives.

Clarifying the nature of safety reliability dataDavid Collier, Business Development Manager, PILZ Automation TechnologyThe increasing need to use safety reliability data in the design and verification of machine safety functions in accordance with the standard EN ISO 13849-1 (or EN 62061) has spawned questions about various types of reliability data such as B10d, MTTFd, and PFHd. Machine safety experts, PILZ, explain the association between these different types of reliability data and specific component types, why they exist, and how to use them in accordance with the standard.

14:00 -14:20
The challenges of lighting - too little, too much, the wrong kindMark Weymouth, Managing Director, Leuze ElectronicOne of the biggest challenges with vision systems is lighting. Leuze Electronic will explain how they overcome the challenges of lighting, whether too little, too much or the wrong type.Typical applications, such as bottling lines, present problems with reflections whilst automotive component checking might require high precision. The reading of Direct Part Marking (DPM) codes on metal can present both of these problems and many others.Leuze Electronic will demonstrate how to solve the challenges of lighting in vision applications.

14:30-14:50
Evaluating actuators for wash-down in food and beverage applicationsDave Schuh, Sales Director, Motion Control Products LtdProduction of food and beverages on today's industrial scale would not be possible without a high level of automation. Pneumatic, hydraulic and electric actuators are critical moving components in equipment used for processing and packaging food and beverage products for world markets. In addition to efficient production, machines used to process food must keep food safe by not harboring or introducing bacteria, lubricating fluids or other contaminants that could harm consumers. This seminar will examine how actuators need to be designed and built in order to perform in this challenging environment so that process and automation engineers can select the most appropriate actuators for their food and beverage applications.

Energy efficiency in motion control Simon Goodwin, General Manager, and Neil Walker, Applications Team Manager, B&R Industrial Automation LtdImprovements in energy efficiency in a drive system will give directly proportional cost savings to both the manufacturer and the end-user. During the presentation Simon Goodwin will be covering some of the methods that can be employed to maximise these savings.Accurate drive sizing ensures that appropriately sized motor and drive combinations will be the most cost-effective for initial investment. These correctly sized drives will give lower running costs due to less mass and lower inertias. Simon will also illustrate other methods that modern drives utilise which can reduce costs employing such features as power factor correction, energy buffering, regenerative braking and movement profile optimisation.Attendees will learn how state of the art tools are being used by major manufacturers to make significant savings in energy, while boosting performance over traditional control systems.

Discover how engineer-led plant evolution unlocks profitRoy Johnson, Director of Sales, Red Lion ControlsManufacturing and process organisations are under constant pressure to improve plant productivity. Access to data can be the key to this productivity improvement. Often, the immediate reaction to increase data accessibility is to replace existing equipment with new, while control equipment, network wiring and hardware replacement is an option, this costly approach can prove risky. Join us to learn how your plant can evolve by effectively using data to drive productivity and profit.

Contamination control and how it can save you money Geoff Grant, Product Manager, MP Filtri UK LtdWe know that around 70-90% of hydraulic breakdowns can be attributed to particulate contamination. That's quite a high figure in anyone's terms. If we can reduce this figure by 30-40% then surely there is a cost saving there.Our aim is for anyone who designs, builds and maintains a hydraulic system to be aware of the cost savings and overall benefits of effective contamination control, through general best practice procedures, contamination awareness and particle counting.
