“iPad HMI” Makes Car Wash Automation Mobile

The retail car wash industry is a competitive one. It is an industry that relies on customers’ discretionary income and ability to spend on additional services for their vehicles. Despite some volatility, the car wash and servicing industry is an open field, where small and large firms alike can compete if their locations are favorable and their operations are incredibly efficient.

A Better SCADA System for Textile Machines Helps The Turkish Textile Industry Stay Competitive

The dying and knitting of yarn for textiles is a process that has existed for thousands of years. This process has long been machine automated, but with advanced SCADA software that provides an intuitive development environment for robust monitoring and data acquisition applications, it’s possible to follow that process through every step from raw material to finished product. Using a SCADA system that gathers data from multiple textile stenter machines, Ekoten Textile, located in Izmir, Turkey, is able to record and compile data from every stage of their textile production process. With this data, Ekoten Textile can compare everything from output by machine, to the quality of the finished product.

Thomson Technology Generates Huge Time Savings with InduSoft

Any facility is only as reliable as its power source. The equipment we depend on to ensure we have electrical power must be robust, and reliable. That’s why the equipment produced by Thomson Technology is so critical to power generation infrastructure, as is the HMI that connects those systems to their human operators. When Thomson Technology began to research a better development platform for their flagship Series 2400 switchgear, they needed to find a product that would be as reliable as the equipment they produce.

Graham Engineering Reinvents Blow Molding Machine Interface

Plastics are ubiquitous in our lives. They act as packaging for nearly every good we purchase. They are present in many of the products we use daily, including the cars we use for transport and bottles we drink from. Today, plastics are shaped using blow molding equipment designed to create a variety of shapes and sizes, using plastic resins with varying mechanical and optical properties. These machines, including the extrusion blow molding machines designed by Graham Engineering Corporation (GEC) are taking advantage of the top HMI development technology in order to give operators more control of this advanced equipment.

InduSoft Web Studio Gives Drag Racer Real-Time Edge in Setting World Record

Racing great Mark Donohue called it “the unfair advantage”.  Rally racers in the UK call it “demon tweaks”.   In NASCAR, it’s “getting the call”.   Whatever you call it, finding little secrets to make your car go just a teeny bit faster than everyone else is what wins championships and sets records.

Imagine the edge given a drag racer who can tweak fuel flow right before a race.   Texan Trevor Stripling discovered he could use InduSoft Web Studio to monitor and tune his car in real-time as he roars down the track.   Competing drivers record data to prep their cars for the next race.  Stripling used this edge to set a world record.

Mega-yachts from Nightwatch Industries: Interface by InduSoft

Crystal blue water. Sugar-white sands. These are the images that yachting connotes for most of us. And indeed these images are congruent with the idea of pleasure boating. But ask any yacht Captain, and he'll tell you that these beautiful, sea-going pleasure craft can comprise dozens of complex systems that must be constantly monitored. This reality is particularly true of the mega-yachts enjoyed by the wealthy today.
