Let's repair more instead of disposing!

A statement from Daniel Büchle, CEO of AfB social and green IT, on the 'right to repair'
The EU has made its decision: The 'right to repair' becomes a reality. As part of the IT refurbishment community, I am delighted about the positive changes that this regulation could bring for us: Easier repairability, longer useful life and therefore less electronic waste.

E-paper displays – more flexibility, less power

E-paper displays – more flexibility, less power

E-paper has been around for decades, but it is only recently that the technology has grown in everyday use. However, they are also increasingly being used in production and logistics. E-paper displays are suitable for warehouse management systems, labelling, inventory signs, order picking and much more. E-paper displays offer a wide range of unique benefits compared to conventional displays. DMB...

Communicative Compact PLC

Communicative Compact PLC

PLC controllers mostly work as “black boxes” in the control cabinet. The various sensors and actuators connected do their jobs with no noise whatsoever. Gaining insight into what’s going on involves a great deal of effort, to a greater or lesser extent. The new PLC mini control unit range from DISPLAY VISIONS is particularly communicative: the controller itself has a colour touchscreen display, and addresses up to 50 remote satellite displays – to allow supervising, setup and completely...

Data-driven Battery Production

Data-driven Battery Production

Digital automation concepts for battery cell production with RFID, IO-Link, OPC UA and Ethernet guarantee flexibility, reliability and fast ROI. The availability of high-performance batteries at moderate prices is one of the most important factors for the success of electromobility. Short innovation cycles and increasing competition are major challenges for battery manufacturers and carmakers, which above all require flexible, digitized production lines – and automation companies that support...

How green power is becoming even more sustainable

How green power is becoming even more sustainable

Think green – act responsibly on electrical connectivity solutions. Generating renewable energy is supposed to make an important contribution to limiting climate change. But it is not enough to focus solely on the production of "green electricity”. In this segment, too, it is important to use resources sparingly and promote sustainability. Examples from WECO show how it can be done.

Compact piezoelectric motors expanded to include non-magnetic (AMAG) motors

Compact piezoelectric motors expanded to include non-magnetic (AMAG) motors

Piezoelectric motors belong to the group of small motors and use the piezoelectric effect to generate motion. They can operate linearly and rotationally. The principle of a piezoelectric motor is based on a movement of the moving part of the motor (rotor) through a change in the frictional force. This occurs when a voltage is applied to the piezoelectric material. The combination of two out-of-phase voltages induces an elliptical motion whose tangential force component drives the rotor.
