    Work environment ergonomics? An indispensable aspect for every productive reality

    Work environment ergonomics? An indispensable aspect for every productive reality

    Ergonomics and safety have always been vital and indispensable themes for every productive reality since safer, well-ordered productive lines and plants with proper spaces and lower risk work stations bring to greater added value operating methods with more competitive labor and finished product costs, besides to a work quality fundamental to the worker’s health.

    Why choosing the right air motor in packaging machines is essential

    Why choosing the right air motor in packaging machines is essential

    The machines for the packaging sector are numerous, they can perform multiple functions and differ according to the application sector. Consequently, also the manufacturing features of the internal components, such as moving parts, i.e. pneumatic motors – must respect certain characteristics.

    Why it is so important to control the T.C.O. of the tools fleet

    Why it is so important to control the T.C.O. of the tools fleet

    Who is in charge of the maintenance or of the cost management control knows well how important is the TCO, the “Total Cost of Ownership”, that is the total cost of ownership of a good.

    This methodological approach, based on the consideration that the total cost of ownership of an industrial equipment does not only depend on the initial costs of purchase, but also on all the costs that occur during its entire life cycle – including disposal, represents a great method to measure the total costs, by identifying all expenses that may or must be incurred, in clear and measurable terms.
