Nimit Patel, President of Hydraulic Manifolds USA, discussed the key elements of automation and hydraulic manifolds in the recent issue of AutomationMedia. Read the article here.
“Recently hydraulic manifolds have played a critical role in robotics, automation, and mobile applications. Years of experience designing manifolds is critical to avoid the pitfalls of standardized off-the-shelf solutions. Use of specialty manifold design software allows industry leaders to create robust designs while ensuring all required constraints are met,” shared Patel.
Only with automated hydraulic manifold expertise, can potential defects be avoided. When a customer identifies the suggested valve selection, it may not have the desired flow or pressure. Careful critiquing generates suggestions which help reduce design change time for customers. Engineering collaboration allows engineers to understand how manifolds will integrate with other components. The result is a seamless manifold design driving a reduction in assembly time while ensuring serviceable parts are easily accessible.
AutomationMedia, founded in 1998, is one of the most credible sources in the media, with informative content regarding automation, controls, breakthrough manufacturing, as well as operational and industrial intelligence. AutomationMedia is a valuable tool and a favorite bookmarked stop for automation and control professionals worldwide. The publisher has earned a global reputation among industrial software vendors, lean manufacturing experts, and thought leadership contributors.
For 2020 AutomationMedia will introduce a series of case study feature article profiles (usually ten real-world examples by a single vendor) as well as dedicated editorial columns in a new sponsorship program. This will allow readers to capture the breadth and insight of thought leaders’ content as a deep dive exploration of both the pain points on the plant floor and the solutions available.
According to Naeem Ismat, publisher and editor of AutomationMedia, “We are dedicated to developing the awareness and understanding about interoperability in automation by providing the best information from the best sources.” Ismat added one-time articles often fail to explore the true automation considerations which is why expanded coverage format is critical.
Ismat recently announced a formal strategic alliance partnership with manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, founder of the 7000-member Manufacturing Media Consortium and is also the CEO of TR Cutler, Inc. This will ensure that all content is aggressively cross-promoted through both publication relations and social media. This will optimize the published content substantially.
