Energy & Safety debates top of the agenda at Drives & Controls Show

With only  weeks to go, the NEC is set to become the focus of the largest manufacturing  and engineering event of 2012. The Drives and Controls Exhibition - co-located  with the International Fluid Power Exhibition (IFPEX), Air-Tech, and The Plant  and Asset Management Exhibition - taking place between 17-19th April  2012, at the NEC Birmingham will form part of the manufacturing and engineering  series of shows alongside MACH. Show organiser DFA Media believes its series of  events ensures industry professionals will be able to gain the broadest insight  concerning what industry solutions are currently available on the market.

A highlight  of this year's Drives & Controls, Air-Tech, and IFPEX Exhibitions, is the new  FREE-to-attend Energy and Safety seminar theatre, where themed panel  discussions chaired by leading industry organisations including GAMBICA, The  British Fluid Power Association (BFPA), and The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), will focus on key energy management and safety  topics including panel debates surrounding issues such as The use of software and programmable safety. Panel experts will look at how functional safety  depends not only on selecting the right function in the first place and  associated components, but increasingly on the use of software and software  configurable components and networks. There are clear benefits to OEMs and end  users, but what issues are faced by the person(s) responsible for implementing  safety functions and what do they need to do?

In  addition, at a time when UK industry is looking for ways to save money and fund  new Capex purchases to invest in the future our panel discussion on Government Incentives will help to guide you through the  application process and give you experienced advice on how to make the most of  the incentives available.

Other key  panel debates will include helping visitors to know about the direct replacement for EN  954-1 - EN ISO 13849-1. The replacement of EN 954-1 is causing some  confusion and our experienced panel will take you through the changeover.  

We will also be discussing saving energy through intelligent control. When applied to electric motors, the potential for energy saving is  significant, simply by stopping or reducing speed whenever possible. The  seminar will look at different strategies for controlling motor driven systems,  across a range of applications and control technologies.

There will  also be important panel discussions surrounding key energy and safety related issues for the compressed air industry lead by The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), that will help visitors  re-examine their compressed air procedures. While the British Fluid Power  Association will chair a panel along with important industry consultants to  offer a unique opportunity to ask  pressing fluid power industry and related questions.
