  • Topic of Number: Energy
    • An environmentally friendly company, or why it is worth switching to green energy (4)
      Generating "green" energy, and not only from these most beneficial sources, is becoming an increasingly urgent necessity, and not only for purely commercial reasons. Technique and technology takes time to solve the problem of minimizing human negative impact on the environment in industry.
    • Do not be surprised - let's learn in advance to diagnose the condition of irradiated components (10)
      It should not surprise the reader of this title. He calls for prudent behavior of the maintenance services in a situation when on the next time horizon a new challenge arises - nuclear energy and related new challenges, in particular unconventional diagnostics of irradiated materials. It is supposed to concern mainly elements of the nuclear reactor on the first (and probably not the only) nuclear power plant. Do we know anything about this issue? Are we prepared for this type of diagnostics?
    • The play of lights (20)
      Safety, comfort of work, level of fatigue or the possibility of easier perceiving errors are only some of the elements that depend to a large extent on the quality of the workplace lighting. The basis for designing a lighting installation are of course safety standards and regulations, but thanks to modern solutions we can expect much more from our lamps. Among other things, improving employee focus, reducing energy consumption or remote diagnostics.
  • Report: UR in the food industry
    • Effective maintenance of the food industry (24)
      The maintenance of the food industry refers to two aspects. On the one hand, it is a matter of technical maintenance of machines and devices, and on the other hand, it is important to maintain the movement in the organizational context with its continuous improvement.
  • Prevention
    • Support for the UR department by the Health and Safety Service (30)
      Cooperation, cooperation, cooperation - such relations should be formed in every enterprise not only between the production and maintenance department, but also on the line: OHS service - traffic maintenance. Only mutual learning, joint identification of threats and actions taken to minimize occupational risk can contribute to reducing accidents at work and raising awareness in the field of occupational safety.
    • How to ensure safety in potentially explosive areas of production? (36)
      The article describes hazardous factors and hazards that may be encountered by employees of manufacturing enterprises working in explosion hazard zones. Legal regulations in the area of risk assessment and minimum safety requirements are presented, which must be met in order to ensure the safety of employees. Available solutions in the field of anti-explosion protection and good practices minimizing the causes of an explosion have also been described.
    • How to diagnose damage in electric motors? (44)
      Diagnosis of electric motors is daily bread for every diagnostician. The source of mechanical energy of most of the machines we diagnose is an electric motor, usually an asynchronous three-phase motor. The engine can be a key part of large production line assemblies and is usually critical in maintaining production.
  • Exploitation
    • Effective use of pneumatics (48)
      The author, preparing himself to write the article, was inspired by the materials available on the Internet in order to orientate what is currently considered by pneumonia producers and distributors as factors determining the efficiency of the pneumatic system understood as the circuit from the source to the receiver. Most of the materials he found are rather an introduction to the presentation of his own offer and it is difficult to draw information about what affects the efficiency of the use of pneumatics. The author decided to explain the problem closest to the user, i.e. to analyze what may affect the proper operation of the compressed air system.
  • Technologies
    • SAP Cloud Platform - free entry into the world of Industry 4.0 (52)
      The origins of the Industry 4.0 initiative date back to 2011, when the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research set up a strategic project aimed at computerization of industry and production. The project was released in April 2011 at the Hannover trade fair, and in October 2012, the Industry Working Group 4.0, under the direction of Siegfried Dais from Robert Bosch GmbH, presented a set of implementation recommendations.
    • Pneumatic systems in small and medium-sized enterprises (56)
      There are very few studies on the maintenance of pneumatic tools, and there is a lack of systematization and filtering of the information provided on the internet. More often, these messages bring more confusion to the mind than illuminate a problem.
  • Object and media
    • RFID technology in the spare parts warehouse (60)
      The provision of spare parts on time and the possibility of their immediate replacement are the biggest challenges facing maintenance services while maintaining production liquidity. Any way to reduce downtime and minimize losses is priceless.
    • Diagnostics and optimization of hydraulic systems on production (66)
      Properly conducted diagnostics of hydraulic installations should ensure the continuity of industrial machines. During this work, special measuring instruments are used. In turn, the optimization of hydraulic installations is to guarantee the improvement of system performance, especially in the context of energy saving.
  • Production Academy
    • How to be a reliable leader? (70)
      Credibility is probably the most difficult to develop and maintain the leader's traits. Whether we are perceived as reliable or not is influenced by many factors that sometimes are very difficult to control. The role of a team leader requires a lot of patience, intuition, strength and self-denial. But credibility is built from the beginning of the career, not just from becoming someone's boss.
  • People management
    • How to minimize the residual risk correctly? (72)
      The analysis of occupational risk aims at eliminating or reducing hazards in the job position by providing employees with safe working conditions. All risk reduction methods are aimed at attempts to completely eliminate hazards in the work environment. However, if the application of all risk-reduction measures in accordance with the state of knowledge is not enough to eliminate it, then the so-called residual risk.
