In order to be usable to support production-related decision-making, the data must be readily available whenever required and analysis must be trouble-free.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) means numerical modeling and computation of the behavior of fluids and gases. Fluid flow computation is particularly useful when we want to gain deeper understanding of certain phenomena, such as heat transfer from a component to another.
Companies use varied reporting practices; each level presents the data from its own perspective. This means numerous different Excel spreadsheets, formulas, calculation methods, and PowerPoint presentations that take time to compile and are completed at the last minute out of sheer necessity.
Data means nothing if it cannot be analysed and utilized to support the decision-making guiding the company’s operation.
Through digitalization, companies operating in the field of circular economy can achieve significant cost benefits.
An investment in professional automation is at the same time an investment on the most important: actual research work.
Protacon is an active “open source operator”, which means that we also share code for the general use via the Internet. We, in turn, make wide use of software, components and libraries published by others as open source code, ranging from server operating systems and databases to small auxiliary libraries.
Harri Inkiläinen started at Protacon in 2014 as head of the Hollola office; his current retirement was preceded by a fascinating five-year period that enriched his career in many ways.
Machine vision has been widely used in the industrial sector already for over 30 years. Recently, the machine vision technology has taken major development steps creating new application possibilities. The EU and NASA have selected machine vision as one of their future spearhead technologies.
