Máquinas Fix Develops Industrial Solution for the Manufacturing of Ecological Bricks

Awareness is growing globally for the need for more ecologically sustainable methods of production. One company in Brazil, Monteiro Tijolos, produces ecological bricks that have a much smaller carbon footprint and can be used in sustainable architecture instead of resource-heavy traditional fired bricks. Monteiro Tijolos’ ecological bricks are produced with a mixture of gravel and cement, and adhere to the standard NBR10834. Monteiro Tijolos contacted Máquinas Fix to develop an industrial solution for the manufacturing of their ecological bricks.

Saving Lives and Property With Sandbags

During natural disaster situations, sandbags are used to protect people and property. In addition to becoming lifesaving tools during floods and storms, sandbags are also used to provide a steady base for oil, gas, and water pipelines. Sandbags are used in these situations because they provide consistent, flexible weight that enables them to become effective barriers and ballast in a variety of applications. One sandbag manufacturer, Sandbags, enlisted the aid of Quantum Automation in creating a system that would improve the monitoring capabilities and control of their existing sandbag machine.

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.

Building Management Systems for Hospitals

First Mile has developed a building automation system based on InduSoft Web Studio to monitor a hospital in Moscow.

Nowhere is the quality of a building automation system more important than in a hospital. Not only is the comfort and safety of the patients a prime concern, but that of the hospital workers as well. Doctors, nurses, and administrators must all be protected from the spread of viruses and bacteria. A hospital must also be energy efficient, with backup and redundant systems in place designed to turn on in the event of a power outage or other emergency.
