Automation Studio™ - From Engineering Your Systems to Effective Machine-Based Training

(Las Vegas, NV, USA) September 27, 2016 – Originally published in Mining Industry News 

With tough times persisting in the mining industry, manufacturers and OEMs need to bring effective changes in their work process in order to increase productivity and reduce unnecessary costs. To achieve this goal, Famic Technologies recommends the implementation of tools that will optimize all aspects of a product/project’s lifecycle: system design, simulation, documentation, training, troubleshooting, etc. 

Exceeding Automation Training Requirements with Real-World Simulation

(Montreal, Quebec) October 6th, 2015 

We are seeing an increase in demand for qualified technicians particularly within mechatronics and industrial automation. Schools who offer programs in these fields need to invest in large amounts of resources to train their students on the latest technologies used in these industries. Even with dedicated investment, students have difficulties understanding systems’ behaviours as they lack experimentation.

Keep your Operations under Control

To maximize their performance, manufacturers need to implement on an ongoing basis continuous improvement processes (CIP), and find ways to reduce waste. Several approaches may be considered. Lean management has been offering for several years an effective approach to optimize the planning of the logistic flow by reviewing the sequencing and time management of activities.

Centralize the Alarms

Managing efficiently Critical Situations

From energy performance, service maintenance, flexibility on changes to finding comforting solutions for occupants, these are just a few of the growing requirements of management activities for industrial and commercial buildings. As a result, needs in building automation have increased, leading to a significant transformation of these activities by creating a centralized control for all buildings, aptly called the Building Management System platform (BMS).

Even so, the various groups of equipment are controlled by different software applications specific to each manufacturer and to each technology. These software applications are generally not compatible with each other, even though the mechanical and electrical infrastructures are increasingly interdependent.

New Software Generation for Greener Energy Efficient Mechatronic System Design & Analysis

(Montreal, Quebec) June 21st, 2013 - White Paper published for the KSFC (Korean Society for Fluid Power and Construction Equipment) 

In the world of simulation software, many different approaches are used to obtain accurate hydraulic circuit simulation. Most of these tools model components as a set of mathematical equations parameterized with mechanical and geometric data for each component. They are able to simulate in depth specific functions of a circuit, however it becomes progressively a more demanding task to simulate more complex and complete systems.
