Modern automation systems provide for the availability to be accessed remotely and at any time. From this perspective, various users such as operators, maintenance crews and production managers need to have access to automation systems, and the security of each access needs to be guaranteed. In fact, authorizing different profiles of people to access the system remotely, means exposing the system to security issues that can involve data confidentiality and even command and control security problems. Typically, these accesses have to be managed in a simple and functional way, thus the Web Client technology is used increasingly.
For the faster production of e-motors, Siemens has developed a new application which optimally controls wire tension for linear winding and minimizes fluctuations in force. The Wire Brake software application for automated winding of rectangular coil former controls the tension of the copper wire.

Korean automotive manufacturer sees 1,150% increased tool life with CoroDrill® 860-GM. It’s said that life is a marathon, not a sprint. For automotive manufacturers, longer lasting tooling solutions are integral to more profitable production — but, often, manufacturers see little reason to change their existing tool set-up. Here, James Thorpe, global product manager at Sandvik Coromant, the global leader in metal cutting tools, explains why the benefits of longer-lasting tools — like the latest addition to its CoroDrill range — shouldn’t be underestimated, particularly for reducing costs-per-part or increasing overall output.
