Fabrico Case Study
Fabrico Case Study
ABB supplies transformer components to a broad range of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The company maintains an inventory of several hundred different products that require voltage labeling in five sizes. These range from 5 1/2” x 2 1/2” to 3” x 2 1/2”. Material requirements specify a polyester face stock with Tedlar overlam with an acrylic adhesive. This is necessary for good bonding, since most of the labels are being applied to epoxy and ceramic- coated surfaces.
ABB Increases Productivity and Reduces Operational Costs
ABB Increases Productivity and Reduces Operational Costs
ABB relies on Control Center to monitor connections to its customers' industrial robots for potential problems. As soon as conditions change, ABB engineers want to know about it so that they can act on it. Engineers wanted a solution so that they can anticipate problems by constantly analyzing the information that they receive from the devices. They have developed a set of predictive KPIs, which they share with their customers to help them decide if their equipment requires maintenance.

Shanghai Minhang Economic&Technological Developement Zone
Shanghai Minhang Economic&Technological Developement Zone
In 2012, the Shanghai Minhang ETDZ’s gross industrial output value increased 3.1% to RMB 46.63 billion. The sales revenue in the zone was RMB 48.66 billion, up 9.33% year on year. Major investors include GE, ABB, Michelin, Siemens, Fuji Xerox, Yili, Pepsi, Coca- Cola, Johnson & Johnson, and Schneider. Huntsman, the world’s leading special-chemical manufacturer in the world, entered the zone in 1996. It invested US$10 million to build the largest mixing plant in Asia within the zone in the same year. In 2008, it set up its third global research and development center in Minhang ETDZ to provide state-of-the-art technologies and services to customers in the Asia Pacific region.

Collaborative Robotics
Collaborative Robotics
A flexible form of human-machine interaction where the user is in direct contact with the robot while he is guiding and training it. A collaborative robot, or "cobot," is a robot that can safely and effectively interact with human workers while performing simple industrial tasks. However, end-effectors and other environmental conditions may create hazards, and as such risk assessments should be done before using any industrial motion-control application.
Outage Management System
Outage Management System
An Outage Management System (OMS) is a computer system used by operators of electric distribution systems to assist in restoration of power. At the core of a modern outage management system is a detailed network model of the distribution system. The utilities Geographic Information System (GIS) is usually the source of this network model. By combining the locations of outage calls from customers, a rules engine is used to predict the locations of outages.For instance, since the distribution system is primarily tree-like or radial in design, all calls in a particular area downstream of a fuse could be inferred to be caused by a single fuse or circuit breaker upstream of the calls. The outage calls are usually taken by call takers in a call center utilizing a customer information system (CIS). Another common way for outage calls to enter into the CIS (and thus the OMS) is by integration with an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. The CIS is also the source for all the customer records which are linked to the network model.Customers are typically linked to the transformer serving their residence or business. It is important that every customer be linked to a device in the model so that accurate statistics are derived on each outage. Customers not linked to a device in the model are referred to as "fuzzies."
Peak Demand Metering
Peak Demand Metering
An electric demand meter works on the principle that customers who require a higher or more intensive level of service during bursts of peak demand should pay more for the availability of that service.Electricity flows in a current. It cannot be stored. It's not possible to cut back on electricity four or five days in advance to have power on reserve for peak demand. A demand meter calculates billing based on the highest level of service that a residential or commercial customer would possibly need.A demand meter is similar to a car's speedometer that can register speeds of 100 miles (161 km) per hour or more. Although the car's usual driving speed, even on an expressway, will be much lower, there might be times when the car needs to go as fast as possible, such as when passing a slow-moving car on a two-lane highway. The speedometer is designed to handle the car's peak demand for driving speed.With electric service, a family or business that places demands on the electric grid, for example, to run a a high-level, energy-intensive mainframe computer or a whole-house air conditioner, even for short periods of time, would require more capacity from the electricity grid during those periods of peak demand than would a household or business that did not have such energy-demanding equipment. Even businesses or homes that used more electricity overall wouldn't place the same kind of demand on the electric grid, because most electricity systems are capable of handling a normal demand load from their customers.
