Robot Simulation: Make the Most of Your Investment in Automated Manufacturing

September 05, 2022 | 1:00 PM ET | USA

Robot Simulation
Manufacturers in every industry are adopting robotic automation at an accelerating rate.  The investment required for automation is often significant and comes with a host of options.  What type or size of Robot should be selected? What throughput can be achieved through this new system? Will the workcell fit into my production line? All of these questions can be answered with Robot Simulation Software. This multi-function tool is invaluable in modeling complicated manufacturing systems. In addition to explaining how Robot Simulation Software can be utilized, this presentation will provide Case Studies that demonstrate how simulation early in the project can avoid later problems with Robot integration.

Wind Turbine Drivetrain Reliability: the tribology of premature bearing failures

September 14, 2022 | 2:00 PM BST

Wind energy continues to be one of the fastest growing energy installations to electrical grid around the world. In the US, wind is now the largest source of renewable electricity generation providing over 120 GW which is produced by over 70,000 turbines. Wind turbine operations and maintenance (O&M) wind can be challenging and costly; O&M costs currently represent the single largest component of wind plant operational expenditure with drivetrain reliability remaining a significant contributor to those O&M costs. The unique operational conditions of the bearing and gears within wind turbines has led to a number of tribological related failures, with the predominate and lesser understood failure mode attributed to a premature bearing failure referred to as white-etching cracks (WEC) or axial cracks. Several drivers have been identified that lead to WEC failures. In this talk we will review the research conducted at Argonne National Laboratory on studying the impact of lubricant chemistry, material cleanliness, and stray electrical currents have on promoting WEC failures.

How can construction crack its skills shortage?

October 14, 2022 | 6:00 AM ET

Construction has bounced back quicker than expected from the Covid-19 pandemic and the industry is set to reach 2019 levels of output in 2022. However, the sector still faces a significant skills challenge and according to the Construction Industry Training Board by 2025, the industry will need to recruit an additional 217,000 new workers just to meet demand.The government’s Build Back Better drive is placing increasing pressure on the industry to deliver and the sector also needs to invest in the skills that will drive change and meet new and growing needs such as net zero emissions and building safety. That means an increasing focus on specific skills and occupations such as leadership and management, digital skills and skills related to energy efficiency.

Will AI change the face of construction?

September 16, 2022 | 6:00 AM ET

Artificial intelligence (AI) is on the rise in construction as companies look to streamline delivery in order to meet ever-growing demand. The rise of AI and machine learning technologies have the potential to change the face of construction and although the fear of the robots taking over is inevitable, there are positive aspects. AI can be used to explore the possibilities of each aspect of a construction project and find the best solution much quicker than a human mind can. Not only does this speed up processes, it also reduces the risk of human error which can improve safety on sites. So, how far can AI go in the construction and infrastructure sector and will it change the industry as we know it? Sign up for this webinar and find out.
