Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Use Precision Laser Alignment

Perth, WA, Australia, 2018-Sep-18 — /EPR Network/ — A laser alignment system eliminates all the guesswork and unknowns associated with traditional measurement systems like dial gauges, straight edge methods and co-ordinate measurement machines (CMMs).

But their advantages stretch way beyond just the quality of the results that they deliver. Here are 10 of the top reasons why your operation should switch to precision laser alignment.

  1. PINPOINT ACCURACY. Unlike other systems, a laser tool can measure down to 0.001mm, even over long distances. The laser beam is always 100% straight and what’s more, laser systems automatically calculate for shims and adjustments values, so the results are always accurate. Unlike older technologies where accuracy may also be compromised because of reading errors, sticky dial hands and low resolutions, laser tools have extremely high resolutions for pinpoint accuracy.
  2. QUICK AND EASY SET UP AND FASTER RESULTS. The equipment is lightweight and easy to learn as well as use which means much shorter set-up times, preparation and measurements. It can also measure three axis directions in a fraction of a second, which results in further time-savings.
  3. MORE RELIABLE. Because lasers eliminate the possibility of human error and inconsistency, they’re more reliable and precise than any other method. Repeatability is another significant benefit and regardless of who is using the equipment and taking the measurements, the laser equipment will always deliver the same consistent results.
  4. ELIMINATES HARDWARE SAG. When a dial gauge is used, there is always a risk of some of the fixtures sagging which can compromise the accuracy of the displayed value. With a laser tool however, there is nothing to worry about with regards to fixtures dropping or sagging.
  5. SAVE BOTH MONEY AND TIME
    Faster set-up and operation coupled with the absolute precision of the results mean a laser tool can easily pay for itself in a matter of months.
  6. SOFT FOOT – HARD RESULTS. Machine frame distortion and soft foot issues can be problematic but unlike a dial gauge which only tells half the story, a laser alignment tool provides a true representation of what’s going at the feet of the rotating machinery as well as what’s happening with the movement between the axes of the shafts being aligned.
  7. VERSATILE. A quality laser alignment system does more than just measure alignment. These versatile tools enable optimum equipment set-up and operation, measuring base flatness, twist, squareness, bearing condition, spindle direction and straightness amongst others.
  8. ABILITY TO MEASURE WITH A SMALL SHAFT ROTATION. Measuring with a traditional dial gauge can require a rotation anywhere between 1800 and 3600. However, a laser alignment tool can take a complete measurement with a much smaller shaft rotation, sometimes as little as 400 which is advantageous especially when machine parts prohibit a full rotation.
  9. ENHANCED DATA MANAGEMENT. Advanced software solutions bring data management to a new level. PDF reports can be generated directly from the instrument, results can be examined in real time and the information can be integrated with an existing software system for record-keeping and reference purposes.
  10. REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION. Half of all machine failures are caused by alignment errors, so it is critical that errors are identified and removed as early as possible – or better still, are prevented from happening in the first place. When machinery is well-aligned and running smoothly, it will consume less energy than a poorly-aligned one which is another compelling reason for choosing fast, accurate and reliable laser alignment technology.

Given that laser alignment tools are simple to learn, easy to use, highly accurate and deliver a wide range of benefits, there’s no need to continue using complicated dial gauges and other older technologies which may be compromising the efficiency of your rotating machinery as well as compromising your bottom-line.

Nexxis has worked with many customers across a diverse range of industries to develop customised solutions for their particular alignment requirements. Deciding to go for laser technology is a major step towards more efficient, cost-effective and productive machinery, but it’s critical that the tool – or combination of tools and accessories – that you choose are right for your unique needs in terms of cost, functionality and relevance to the application.

MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date

MONTREAL, Canada, 06-Jul-2018 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — iBwave, the global standard for designing multi-technology in-building networks announced today that MTS, the leading telecommunications group in Russia, has successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the 2018 Soccer tournament.

One of the main challenges during a major event like this is to be ready for the massive data demands put forward by excited fans using multiple devices in a stadium’s complex environment. To enable a fast, reliable fan experience during the 2018 Soccer, MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to quickly deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date. iBwave Design was used to successfully plan and deploy high capacity networks for the following stadiums and surrounding areas: Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (capacity: 80,000), Spartak Stadium, Moscow (capacity 45000), Rostov Arena Rostov-on-Don (capacity 45000) and Kazan Arena, Kazan (capacity 45000).

Through iBwave’s ability to design mobile networks in large complex venues such as stadiums, operators like MTS can create the ultimate wireless experiences by meeting the demands of a large number of people at a specific time without compromising on speed and quality. There is no margin for error in such an environment when the service is needed then and there without any disruption. Many players are needed to create this experience and iBwave’s design capability ties this all together. With iBwave on its team, MTS was able to deliver a great end user experience by leveraging design features such as signal and capacity modeling right down to inclined surfaces, complex architecture and body-loss calculations when the stadium is filled to capacity.

“It is always difficult to predict mobile consumer needs in high density, high capacity environments- particularly for a world class sporting event such this, where thousands of sports fans are simultaneously using multiple devices across multiple technologies,” says Seth Roy, Vice President Product Line Management at iBwave. “Based on our experience of connecting major sporting events such as past World Cups and the Olympics, our tools are the ideal choice to prepare for the huge amounts of data requirements during the 2018 World Cup. We are proud to support MTS in this project and extremely excited to be part of the design and deployment of Europe’s largest Massive MIMO experiences”, he added.

More than 3 million spectators are estimated to watch the games live during this month-long event, which is underway until July 15th.

Corrosion Management For Storage Facilities Using NDT

Perth, Western Australia, 2018-Jun-13 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — Corrosion is widely accepted as one of the primary causes of degradation and failures in storage tanks.

Many industries including agriculture, general chemical, oil & gas store and energy use above-ground, below-ground, vertical, cylindrical and horizontal tanks to store product with the energy industry in particular exposed to the possibility of corrosion-related issues in their storage facilities. Millions of litres of oil, petrochemicals, liquid gas and other materials are stored in tanks and any failures could have catastrophic results.

Environmental conditions including weather and ground conditions can cause corrosion, but the bulk of the risk emanates from the contents of the storage facilities themselves. Harsh chemicals, contaminants and other corrosive materials which are kept in storage tanks can cause internal corrosion of the metal tanks, pipelines and platforms both on-site and further downstream, with the likelihood of degradation escalating when they’re subjected to constant or regular exposure to corrosive substances.

Controlling and combating corrosion is not only an operational imperative but it’s actually a matter of national security.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) plays a significant role in maintaining the safety and security of assets and infrastructure and NDT technologies together with the development of durable new coatings and other advanced engineering procedures have enabled industries to protect storage facilities against corrosion. For example, metallic and organic coatings and insulation are being applied to tanks and along bond lines as added layers of protection and new non-corrodible materials such as fibreglass are increasingly being used to help minimise the likelihood of corrosion. Engineers are also building secondary containment systems around storage facilities as added protection, plus they are making use of advanced techniques like cathodic protection to further mitigate the risks of corrosion.

Major strides have been made in corrosion-management and whereas engineers used to react to corrosion-related problems, nowadays their approach is a far more preventative one.

Some examples of NDT technologies which play a key role in corrosion-management are:

  • Ultrasonic thickness testing which is used to map wall thickness and identify areas of corrosion that may be hidden or difficult to detect, such as in pipework and areas under insulation;
  • Eddy current testing to assess the condition of tanks and which can identify potential weaknesses;
  • Acoustic emissions testing to monitor the condition of both metallic and fibreglass tanks;
  • Thermal testing to isolate areas of potential weakness; and
  • Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) for testing the integrity of the floor of a container.

Effective inspection of storage facilities through the use of advanced NDT techniques and instruments will identify any areas of degradation or repairs that are required BEFORE any failure occurs. However, accurate and repeatable data is a key element of an effective corrosion-management programme and therefore it is imperative to choose NDT equipment and/or an inspection service provider that delivers the required high performance standards.

Nexxis’s range of NDT equipment and services will provide you with all the highly accurate and comprehensive data that you’ll need to assess the condition of your storage facilities and make informed asset management decisions. Have a look at our extensive range of high quality NDT equipment for sale, lease or purchase on our website, nexxis.com.au or get in touch on 08 9418 4952 and speak to one of our highly experienced technical team. We’re in the business of developing solutions that meet your operation’s individual and changing NDT equipment needs, so talk to us first about your corrosion-management requirements.

The Effects Of Misaligned Equipment

Perth, Western Australia, Jun-27-2017 —  /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/  — Nexxis are one of Australia’s leading suppliers of specialist remote visual inspection (RVI) technology and non destructive testing (NDT) equipment and they have all the answers to your equipment misalignment problems.

Industrial operations are losing huge sums of money because the centrelines of the shafts of their rotating equipment (such as pumps and motors) aren’t running on the same axis and are therefore misaligned – with some industry sources going as far as saying that shaft misalignment is to blame for up to 50% of all machine breakdowns.

And when you consider that a survey by a leading rotating equipment service company found that less than 10% of machines that were evaluated were aligned within acceptable tolerances, misalignment is clearly a widespread problem.

Here are some of the costly and damaging effects of equipment that is poorly aligned or misaligned.

Excessive vibration
Misalignment is one of the leading causes of vibration problems – and as the reliability of the machine corresponds directly with the level of vibration, excessive radial and axial vibrations will impact negatively on performance. All rotating equipment will produce a certain level of noise, but when the shafts are misaligned and the equipment vibrates excessively, noise levels will also escalate correspondingly.

Premature failure of seals and bearings
Accelerated failure of seals and other parts is costly – and even the slightest misalignment can result in excessive force and stress being put onto the bearings and seals. Replacement parts are expensive, plus there’s also the risk of damage and contamination of other components from the leaking fluid from the stressed seals and bearings.

Increased energy costs
Misalignment correlates directly to higher power consumption as the machines are less efficient and therefore draw greater amounts of energy.

Excessive heat
In the same way that variations in temperature can cause misalignment, misalignment can cause machines to overheat which results in lubrication issues as well as safety risks.

Broken shafts
Misalignment can cause the shafts to break or crack – and this can lead to unplanned downtime and production problems as well as costly equipment repair.

Higher operating costs, loss of production and increased maintenance costs
Misaligned machinery generally has a shorter service lifespan and this premature failure of capital equipment adversely affects outputs as well as negatively impacting the operation’s balance sheet. Higher maintenance costs, costly downtime, unexpected capital costs for equipment replacement, increased inventory for spare parts and even the potential for catastrophic machinery failures are all consequences of misalignment-induced mechanical failures.

Inferior quality outputs
Misaligned machinery can also result in inferior or defective products which can impact on profitability.

Implementing a careful and thorough preventative maintenance programme will go a long way towards minimising the risk – and the associated costs – of misaligned machinery. To find out how a customised solution can ensure that your operation runs at optimum efficiency, you should contact Nexxis on 08 9418 4952 or via their website, nexxis.com.au.

Bmark Energy Announces California Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E

  • California’s Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E
  • Many Commercial & Industrial DA Companies Currently Save 10-25%

Pismo Beach, CA, June 02, 2015 — /EPR INDUSTRIAL NEWS/ — On April 21, 2015, California Senate Bill SB286 passed a Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee (11-0) and indicates the legislature’s desire to support both individual choice (increase the DA CAP) and renewable energy.

This is Great News – and is Electricity Deregulation in Action

Many companies currently participating in the DA program appreciate substantial savings between 10-25% on their generation costs over fully-bundled utility rates, which is why the DA program is so popular and in high demand.

Going forward, we expect the bill to be amended to either phase in the CAP increases or impose some alternative type of participation CAP, and include a renewable energy purchase obligation for new participants.

The Committee Chairman supports the bill and would like to see the bill amended to increase the CAP by 8,000 GWh and would also like to see any new participants be taken from the utility wait list.

** This “Wait List” and Timing are Extremely Important **

To be considered for participation into the DA program, a Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access needs to be submitted by a company to their utility. With these notices, each utility creates their “Wait List” for any future DA openings that may occur under the CAP for the following year.

“It is extremely important that companies realize that the utility Wait Lists for 2016 are being formed NOW,” says Robert Kramb, president of Bmark Energy, “and the deadline is June 12 for any 2016 DA openings.”

Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access forms are sent to the utility June 8, 2015 – June 12, 2015. If you miss the June 12, 2015 deadline, any DA opportunity for 2016 is eliminated.

Next Steps to Take:

1- Contact us at Bmark Energy at: 805-773-3762 Ext. 3
2- Email your electric utility invoice to: robertk@bmarkenergy.com
3- We will complete the form and return it to you for your signature.
4- We will then submit the form during the utility enrollment period.

Here are links to additional information on Direct Access, regarding FAQs, as well as savings charts and graphs.

Expand DA – Get on the Wait List

A New Device Prevents Elevator Accidents Result From Moving Elevator With Open Door

FSSG In a nutshell 

FSSG is a patented electrical device installed in series with elevator door locks safety circuit, to detect any by-pass that may result in elevator running with open door, upon detection FSSG prevents elevator “NORMAL” operation and changes elevator control into “SERVICE” mode, thus prevents automatic movement with open door, thus prevents horrific elevator accidents.

How FSSG protect the public riders 
Elevator runs with open doors because of 2 reasons only, either Mechanical or electrical failure, Mechanical failure (machine brake or suspension) that led to elevator runs with open door, has been resolved by the Unintended Car Movement( UCM) protection. the only problem with it, in case of door locks by-pass the UCM is disabled and cannot protect the public.

Electrical failure (door lock by-pass, car switch by-pass) up till now considered to be Human error / unresolved, with the FSSG this problem has been resolved, Human error is not valid any more.

Today’s news, we’ve successfully implemented a new safety method for which, FSSG employs the UCM to creates for the first time in elevator history a comprehensive elevator protection, to ensures that no matter what’s the failure, “this elevator will not run automatically with open door.”

FSSG Description & Functions

  • FSSG is an electric device that connected in series to any safety chain to be monitored, such as landing door locks or car gate switch.
  • FSSG detects any by pass of safety circuit, either intentionally by elevator mechanic or unintentionally by-pass resulting from Short-Circuit in elevator controller or the shaft.
  • FSSG upon detection of such by-pass, switches elevator control into inspection mode. thus prevents accidents results from automatic movement with open door, but allows elevator mechanic to run the elevator under inspection mode.
  • FSSG does not disable the UCM protection during by-pass as it’s distinguish between elevator runs on by-pass, or elevator runs on safety circuit., even though by-pass exist FSSG detects also a single landing door by-pass or car gate switch by-pass, based on car door position, according to international elevator code A17.1 & EN81-20.
  • FSSG is self protected, it detects and alert any attempt to disable / by-pass the FSSG by placing a jumper wire over it.
  • FSSG detect and alert an internal failure of the FSSG
  • FSSG employ the UCM to prevent either mechanical or electrical failure that result with car running with open door.
  • FSSG is easy to adapt to all kinds of existing elevators
  • FSSG is Highly reliable, low cost and easy to install

Do not wait for the next accident act Now, FSSG

Laundry 365 days working for the Electrolux Primus Hydro Extractor

Laundry 365 are a laundry supply company with a difference, they literally are available 365 days a year to help their customers and the experience comes from a company set up by personnel that had been in the laundry business for a good many years. The result is a company that has the ability to supply commercial laundry machines covering the full range of the industries requirements from all the major manufacturers and who can also give advice or can even design and build any laundry according to the customer’s specifications. When Laundry 365 is teamed with Electrolux, the great Swedish Laundry and Kitchen machine producer, in the supply of the Electrolux range of hydro extractors there is a good chance that the customer will get a good piece of equipment which can be serviced 365 days a year. Electrolux is the second largest producer of household goods in the world and has vast experience in producing excellent machines both under its own name and also many others.

Laundry 365 is pleased to promote the Electrolux Primus range of Hydro Extractors, which includes the massive HEM 289 18 kg model designed for the large commercial laundry. The hydro extractor is built to remove excess water after the washing machine has done its job. Instead of spending time with spin dryers working for long periods of time the Electrolux Hydro Extractor will do the job quickly efficiently. The Electrolux Hydro Extractor HEM 289 18 kg model has a vertical stainless steel drum for extremely long life and spins at up to 1450 rpm. This very high spin rate creates extreme G forces within the machine and removes the water from the laundry very rapidly. The result is that the laundry comes out of the machine only slightly damp and ready for ironing. Laundry 365 is pleased to note that the Electrolux Hydro Extractor HEM 289 18 kg model produces finished laundry in a state that the commercial ironing machine only requires one pass to finish the laundry.

The Electrolux Hydro Extractor is built to reduce the production time of the laundry cycle and although it at first seems to be an extra process it decreases the overall working time quite considerable and has become an invaluable piece of equipment in most commercial laundries. Laundry 365 is able to supply these machines with the flexible suspension stainless steel drum for low noise and reduced vibration from the machine, this also reduces the wear on the machine and helps with the life cycle of the machine. TheElectrolux Hydro Extractor can also be supplied with a fixed stainless steel drum for use in applications where the suspended drum would be a problem such as on ships, drilling platforms and laundrettes.

Laundry 365 will advise on the use of the full range of Electrolux Hydro Extractors from small to large so that the customer can obtain the best type of machine for his laundry application. Their vast knowledge is important in making sure that not only do they supply the best machine but also to make sure there is no duplication or money wasted in the process.

Wormald Urges Watercraft Owners To Consider Fire Protection

As many Australians take to the water to enjoy the long warm summer days, fire protection specialist Wormald is urging watercraft owners and operators to ensure they have adequate fire protection equipment on board.

According to Mark Brown, National Marine Manager with Wormald Technology, regardless of boat size or type, or whether it’s used for commercial or recreational purpose, careful consideration should be given to ensuring fire protection equipment is in place. “Inadequate or improper fire protection can, in the case of a fire, expose those on board to extreme dangers and lead to potential loss of equipment and assets.

“Before setting sail, it’s important to identify all fire hazards and install suitable fire protection equipment. The choice of fire extinguisher, fire blankets and fire detection equipment will depend on a vessel’s type and size so it’s a good idea to consult a fire protection expert”, says Brown.

Powder fire extinguishers ABE are the most widely used type of fire extinguisher and work by discharging a fine powder that smothers fire. Available in a range of sizes, they are suitable for most vessels.

Smoke alarms should be installed in cabin and saloon areas, and thermal detection systems should be considered for spaces where machinery is located. “In the event of a fire, smoke alarms can assist in providing the precious time needed to act or escape. Regularly check that the alarms are working by pushing the test button and replace batteries as necessary.”

Once fire protection equipment is installed, it should be regularly serviced to ensure it is in proper working order. “Any fire protection equipment on board should perform to the standard to which it was originally designed and installed to. Regular checks and servicing can help uncover any faults or issues that may prevent the equipment from working correctly at the time of greatest need,” says Brown.

Ferco Provides Seating to Major London Olympics Legacy Venues

Few will ever forget the sights and sounds of the historic London Olympic Games, but they might not realise that one of the UK’s premier stadium seating manufacturers had been at work behind the scenes; providing seating solutions for some of the most high profile arenas of the games.

But the Olympic legacy is still alive and well, and Ferco is also manufacturing seats for brand new developments outside of London which maintain the spirit of excellence and achievement that was born during the games; developments such as Orford Jubilee Park in Warrington, a state of the sporting facility for Sports, Leisure and Health Education students at Warrington College.

The Orford Jubilee Park is the latest Olympic legacy development outside of the capital. This £30 million arena is designed to house an array of exciting sporting activities and course provisions for the college, and thanks to the team at Ferco seating it can comfortably accommodate a host of interested spectators.

The project used riser mounted Ferco FCB-M seats which, while cost effective, boast a unique design and ergonomic build. Widely regarded as the most comfortable plastic spectator seat on the market, the Ferco FCB-M stadium seating solution was the ideal choice for this exciting new sports venue.

Of course, sporting arenas are rarely more breathtaking than the London Olympic Aquatic Centre and this premier sports facility at the heart of the Olympic experience also opted for the high quality Ferco FCB-M stadium seats.

The Aquatic Centre was designed by the award winning architect Zaha Hadid, who endeavoured to incorporate fluid motion into the building’s design. The Ferco FCB-M seats were the perfect solution to maintain this effect thanks to their fluid, curved design. The architects chose the beam variant of the FCB-M in order to provide the flexibility required by the stringent legacy requirements. The Olympic Games might have closed, but the Olympic legacy lives on and the Aquatic Centre will continue to host major sporting events. Ferco seating was chosen to provide a long lasting seating solution which will be in place for years to come.

The genius of this Olympic seating solution is that it was designed for simple reconfiguration after the Olympic Games. The Aquatic Centre is currently being redeveloped into a multi-faceted venue and the FCB-M beam mounted stadium seats have allowed for comprehensive reconfiguration of the spectator area which retains the same high quality seating solution.

Dakshidin Update

Dakshidin Corporation Update. (Pink Sheets: DKSC)

Since the last update, Dakshiden Corporation has been struggling to complete and close an agreement with what initially appeared to be a very interested party however, to date has not been successful in doing so. After a number of meetings it emerged that the company that we were negotiating with had a number of internal issues to deal with prior to being able to make any commitment and eventually it abruptly ceased all correspondence with Dakshidin Corporation.

As a part of those negotiations, Dakshidin Corporation was undertaking a financial audit. Despite the fact that communications with the other party stopped prior to Dakshidin Corporation having to supply them the financial statements, we were still endeavoring to complete the audit but were unable to do so as a result of a lack of funds; in fact, the company has not had the funds necessary to provide regular updates.

As a result of this long period without sales, Dakshidin Corporation is once again in default with Restec LLC. however, Restec LLC has assured Dakshidin Corporation that an order of 50 windmills would cure this default. 50 windmills is the minimum order acceptable to the manufacturer.

Dakshidin Corporation is currently exploring other sources to initiate and close a deal for the manufacturing and sales of the water pumping windmills however, given the disappointing results of the past, we do not wish to give the impression that any deal is imminent. We will release updates as soon as there is something tangible to report.
