Reducing costs by recovering energy from compressors
Reducing energy costs through operational efficiencies is a key objective for all manufacturers, as is the importance of effectively demonstrating ‘green’ credentials. Compressor manufacturer HPC Compressed Air Systems offers users many possibilities and expert advice — however, one particular area which offers the potential for significant energy savings, but is still largely ignored, is the recovery of heat actually produced by the compression process

Still a key role for cables in post-ferret manufacturing
Did you know that until the 1960s, aircraft manufacturer Boeing used ferrets to carry cables to inaccessible areas? The animals were eventually retired because of a tendency to give up their task — or fall asleep. Here, Darren Halford, European Automation's group sales manager, discusses the role of the humble cable in today's industrial applications
