NEW APPLICATION CONTENT SPEEDS UP AND FUTURE-PROOFS MACHINE DESIGNS Rockwell Automation continues to release new application content to help OEMs and process skid manufacturers create state-of-theart machine designs faster and at a lower cost. The latest content includes device objects and two machine builder code libraries, one for converting, print and web (CPW) machines and one for process skids. This new release complements the already available content for packaging applications. FUEL-LOC: NEW BRAND, NEW OPPORTUNITY, NEW PARTNERSHIP 24 Rockwell Automation code libraries and device objects save time when designing machines and replacing devices. Machine builder libraries provide standardised, application-specific code that can help engineers design CPW machines and process skids faster, while still achieving best-in-class performance. The libraries also include applicationspecific features. For example, the process-skid library includes a state machine engine, which engineers can use to develop custom behaviours that match the features of their specific skids. The device objects are code and visualisation objects that provide a common interface for connecting a specific device to other library objects in a machine. This can drastically reduce programming rework when migrating a device. Engineers can simply add the object for a new type of device instead of rewriting the machine’s entire engineering cycle to accommodate the change. The first set of device objects are for starter, drive and motion devices. They also provide faceplates for the new line of Allen-Bradley PanelView 5000 operator interfaces. “Our modular application content helps simplify managing the vast amount of coding used in today’s smart machines,” said Christo Buys, Business Manager – Control Systems, Rockwell Automation Sub-Saharan Africa. “Machine designers can use these new libraries and device objects to create machines in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. And we will continue to release new content for more applications and devices in the future.” The new application content is available as a free download from the Rockwell Automation Product Compatibility Download Center (PCDC). Once downloaded, users import the content into the Studio 5000 Application Code Manager application. The Studio 5000 Application Code Manager application provides a single, user-friendly place for engineers to access the content, build their applications and even test applications before they build a cabinet. Engineers can also create and manage their own library objects within Application Code Manager for reuse on other projects. About Rockwell Automation Rockwell Automation Inc.

Fuel-Loc has been conceived from the need to have a South African product for the tanker industry to choose from. The belief is that it will allow the industry to select a quality brand that is produced, supported and guaranteed in South Africa. The expectation is to create price stability and dependability in the current climate of volatile exchange rates and trade tariff uncertainties. Fuel-Loc products are designed by a passionate and experienced group of professionals. Each member of the team has their own specialised and niche set of skills, allowing for the process of product creation and support to benefit from their years of experience and knowledge. Fuel-Loc has partnered with a local engineering services company: Drawing and Fabrication (D&F). This has ensured that Fuel-Loc is able to obtain the quality and reliability that is required in an engineering partner in order to be confident to offer a dependable product that will be of value to the end user. Main Product Philosophies: Fuel-Loc products are designed to conform to all major international and local standards and specifications. In addition to this the appropriate and best materials have been selected and used in the manufacture and design of these products. The solutions have been designed with current leading products and installations in mind. This will allow for ease of installation as no modifications will be required to fit the new products. Why Local Manufacture and Design? As these products are locally designed and manufactured the end user is able to be actively involved in the entire process. If a customised solution to a specific challenge is required, options can easily be investigated and challenges resolved. Even if it is not a standard product, entire new customer specific solutions can be designed and created. Why Trust the Brand? All products are designed and tested in accordance with strict guidelines and understanding of the implications of a malfunction. Manufacturing is done in line with ISO guidelines and full batch inspection is done during manufacturing and assembly. In closing we would like to encourage future clients to afford us the opportunity to grow with them as we embark on our new journey; hopefully a new journey that will in time become a valuable partnership.
