The mainSENSOR measuring principle from Micro-Epsilon unites the advantages of two sensor types. Based on the combination of inductive sensors and magnetic sensors, reliable and durable sensor solutions for displacement, distance and rotational speed measurements have evolved. In particular, magneto-inductive sensors are used as alternatives to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, the packaging industry and in machine monitoring. Their favorable price/performance ratio makes them specially suitable for serial applications.
Before manufacturing a battery cell in gigafactories, the different raw materials required to build it must be transformed into nanosized powders. These powders require a very high level of purity and the process must be realized in a highly-controlled environment.
What will the factory of the future be like? How will it be organized? To answer these and many other questions about the Industry 4.0 production model, all it takes is a trip to the FPT Industrial Driveline plant in Turin, dedicated to the production of transmissions and axles for heavy equipment.
VTT and IQM have entered into an agreement to establish a co-innovation partnership and begin building Finland’s first quantum computer. The cooperation will bring together top expertise in quantum technologies and enable a leap in Finland’s quantum capabilities. The government of Finland has granted the project EUR 20.7 million funding.
With a treatment capacity of 800,000m³ per day – enough to fill over 300 Olympic-size swimming pools – the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant will ensure Singapore’s water security through the reclamation of used water.
