Condition monitoring in the third dimension

Damage easier to detect in 3D

It’s now easier than ever to detect damage or contamination in machinery and equipment using APROL. Vibration measurement results are now visualized in an interactive 3D graphic

It’s now easier than ever to detect damage or contamination in machinery and equipment using the B&R APROL process control system. Vibration measurement results are now visualized in an interactive 3D graphic to help plant operators and maintenance technicians optimize performance.

Clear overview of FFT

The vibration measurement system uses a fast Fourier transform (FFT) to identify disturbance frequencies. 3D graphics make the results easy to interpret. With multiple measurement series displayed simultaneously, changes in measurement points can be seen at a glance.

Automatic harmonic calculations

Calculating harmonics can help identify which frequency is causing a vibration. The first harmonic is defined manually by selecting a peak. The remaining harmonics are calculated automatically and displayed in the 3D graphic.

Detect damage early

Marking side bands helps to identify errors for specific frequencies. The user defines the base band and the first side band manually. APROL then automatically calculates and highlights the remaining side bands. These tools help users identify damage frequencies quickly and easily for early detection of damage or contamination.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
