新的或旧的机器,可以减少更换工具的时间,工具的改变,甚至更换工件的时间,以加工或制造。这样可以减少时间,提高生产率,延长机器寿命,减少停机时间。”当然,培训对于学习如何有效使用组件是至关重要的,这不是每个企业都能通过内部手段进行的。为了解决这一挑战,Ahner表示,norelem ACADEMY提供来自其专家团队的产品现场培训,包括建议、应用示例和最佳实践示例。例如,norelem最近赞助了HTL renweg的一个学生工程师团队,提供一些标准组件来帮助他们的项目,Visual Drive。视觉驱动项目描述了一个通用附件的传统轮椅,在其中用户可以选择两种驾驶模式。然后,轮椅可以手动使用或借助电力驱动。norelm为该项目提供标准的螺钉、垫圈、联轴器、分度柱塞和螺母,使团队能够进一步开发他们的项目,而不需要定制的部件或专业技能培训。分度柱塞在轮椅内部提供了速度和效率,确保了部件在运行过程中的安全可靠,是固定轮椅杠杆到特定位置的理想部件。在这个项目中使用联轴器意味着离合器作为从齿轮轴到摩擦轮的扭矩传递,使电机的速度可以轻松改变。 Supporting the younger generation to develop new skills and knowledge is also vital in order to start bridging the skills gap. Knowing the importance of this the norelem ACADEMY supported Team InVentus of the University of Stuttgart and donated some standard components to their automation project. The company donated numerous components such as bevel gears, pins, ball bearings, cylindrical pins, shrink disks and angle plates in order to provide components which can be used universally and are easy to integrate into machinery. The InVentus team at the University of Stuttgart developed a vehicle that can drive directly against the wind, powered solely by wind energy with the help of standard components. Looking ahead Bridging the manufacturing skills gap is possible if we all work together says Ahner: “Sharing expertise and knowledge with colleagues and companies is the first step for positive change that the industry needs.” The future of a business is always reflected in the innovative strength of its products. Only by accepting new trends and the challenge of establishing these trends can a company grow and survive on the market. But most importantly explains Ahner, we need to remember the human factor: “Employees, teams and future talents in the industry must have access to all the training and advice they need to grow.” 1: https://www2.deloitte.com/us/en/ pages/manufacturing/articles/future-of- manufacturing-skills-gap-study.html Martin Ahner Martin Ahner is the head of the norelem ACADEMY, which provides areas of training, workshops, lectures, and the promotion of young talent. of standard components: “Mechanical standard components do not require a wealth of expert knowledge from the outset - they can be easily operated with basic knowledge, which can be helpful for young professionals at the beginning of their career.” However, he explains that it’s the little intricacies that can be the difference to an efficient workflow: “For instance, knowing which positioning tool is the best for the job, how to assemble standard components together, and what material the component should be made from to lower maintenance time.” Ahner adds: “There will always be a place for standard components, and by learning how to use these components, engineers can increase their skills and select the right components for the right applications. They can even go on to transfer this knowledge to build fully automated machines or production lines. The use of standard components, whether for 18 | Plant & Works Engineering www.www.glenn-cook.com October 2020 Maintenance Matters Focus on: Training
