Sound Knowledge in Project Management – the Basis for Successful Projects

Since INDUSTRONIC is a project-based company high skills in project management have been crucial for our success over the last years.

Now, our CEO decided to further develop these skills and broaden the know how throughout the whole company. With a large-scale training measure all the employees got the chance to take part in a one day workshop to learn more about project management.

Project Management at INDUSTRONIC

Some of the INDUSTRONIC employees who took part in the project management training

So far, almost two thirds of the staff took the opportunity and learned more about the following topics:

– Project phases and roles
– Target definition
– Project overview and structure plan
– Team development and communication
– Social competency

In general, the feedback was very positive. The participants gained a good overview of the topic and some will even deepen their knowledge with advanced courses. In addition to that many pointed out that it was interesting to work together with colleagues from different departments of the company.

So, the training measure was also helpful to improve the cross-team collaboration and our good working atmosphere.

Wide-Area Notification by INDUSTRONIC – Introducing the Acoustic Siren Horn ASH 125

In one of our recent blog posts my colleague Georg Merkert compared high power sirens and standard horn speakers pointing out their advantages and disadvantages. If you are interested, please click on the following link: https://www.industronic-blog.com/high-power-sirens-vs-horn-loudspeakers/

With a sound pressure level of up to 136 dB, the ASH 125 acoustic siren horn is ideal for covering wide areas, e.g. an entire industrial plant or a large construction site. It can be deployed as classic siren for the output of tones, but also allows for the broadcasting of alarms, live voice announcements or pre-recorded texts with excellent speech intelligibility.

Designed to meet the most demanding industrial requirements, the ASH 125 provides reliable protection against the ingress of dust and high-pressure water jets. This makes the acoustic siren horn the perfect product for a variety of outdoor applications.

The picture below displays all benefits of the ASH 125 at a glance:

All benefits at a glance

Our new brochure on wide-area notification will give you detailed information on the advanced technology behind our acoustic siren horn ASH 125, the various fields of application in different industries as well as installation and mounting options.

Autumn Outdoor Activities

What started out as a charity event has now become an annual tradition – the local Wertheim Autumn Run. INDUSTRONIC employees lined up to run the 4,5k or 10k loop through the historic city and along the banks of the Tauber River.

Ready to go!

                                                                            

       Motivation was on-going…                                                                               …the weather was fair – spirits were high!

 

Even the upcoming „INDUSTRONIC Generation“ joined in!

We all look forward to the next event!

Mobile Communication – a key feature of Industry 4.0

Production facilities as well as industrial processes and procedures are experiencing the “fourth industrial revolution” through the arrival of mobile terminals, real-time applications and the Internet.

Industry 4.0 is now reality and every day business.

 

 

But where does this development come from and why should we deal with this new kind of industry at all?

Companies are always on the lookout for new ways to increase operational efficiency and employee productivity. Rapid response to changing customer requirements is also a challenge that needs to be mastered professionally. In addition to the economic advantage, the focus of the companies is also on a consistent, if not increased, quality and safety in order to offer the customer an appropriate added value.   Read more »

UPGRADES! Opportunity – Progress – Safety

For several years now, it has become clear that digital communication, e.g. via ISDN, is increasingly being overtaken by new technologies such as IP. The circuit-based communication protocols (cable between the terminal device and the central exchange unit) are thus replaced by packet-based protocols. The advantage of this new type of communication lies in the variety of available services. With the help of IP infrastructures, various services such as communication, CCTV, access control or similar can be flexibly implemented for the user. A particular bonus here is facilitated monitoring, as well as the possibility to carry out maintenance.

As a result of this development, owners of (industrial) communication systems are faced with various questions:

 

Is my communication system still up-to-date?

How long will it still be reliable?

Is the safety of my employees still guaranteed with an old system?

How can I integrate new technologies into my processes?

And how can I ensure that my financial investments deliver lasting benefits?

 

There is an answer to all these questions: the system upgrade! Read more »

Studying in the Golden State – A Rewarding Experience

Read an interesting report written by Louis Schäfer, INDUSTRONIC student in the dual study program “Industrial Engineering”, who spent a couple of months at the University of California in Riverside (UCR).

Hello, my name is Louis Schäfer and I´m a student in the dual study program “Industrial Engineering” at the DHBW Mosbach. During my education, I´m gaining both theoretical and practical experience by switching between studying at my university in Bad Mergentheim and working at INDUSTRONIC in Wertheim. At the end of our second academic year our home university gives us the possibility to go abroad for one semester.

We could choose between a couple of partner universities all over the world. In agreement with my trainers at INDUSTRONIC I decided to go to the UCR in California. I chose that school because I wanted to improve my English skills, get to know the American culture and travel the country.

High Power Sirens vs. Horn Loudspeakers

As you might know INDUSTRONIC’s Acoustic Siren Horn ASH 125 can be used as a big horn loudspeaker due to its

Unique Features

  • Built-in 100V toroidal audio transformer
  • Extraordinary audio performance

Gives the Outstanding Advantages

  • Usage of the same amplifiers independently of siren horn or loudspeaker
  • Long distances of cable runs to siren masts
  • Centralized remote amplifiers with no need of outdoor climate cabinets
  • Centralized power supplies and battery backup with no need of solar panels

Substitute for Horn Loudspeakers

Due to the exceptional audio performance of INDUSTRONIC’s Acoustic Siren Horn it can be used as a complete substitute for any type of industrial outdoor horn loudspeaker.

Simulation

The following picture shows a calculation and comparison between 5 (five) common 25 Watts industrial horn loudspeakers and 1 (one) 125 Watts INDUSTRONIC Acoustic Siren Horn.

The instalation was simulated in a tank farm. Both systems were mounted on 15 meter high masts.

 

As you can easily see 5 horn loudspeakers cover much less of the area than 1 single Acoustic Siren Horn.

This gives the possibility of covering large areas with less effort as wiring and assembly costs are reduced.

 

Are there only benefits?     

 …let’s say there are also some disadvantages:

Big coverage means that big areas are acoustically addressed and the saying

‘A lot helps a lot’

is not correct in every case due to potential echoes, reflections and disturbing sound in the surroundings.

  • In order to get a selective coverage, the use of smaller horn loudspeakers may be more effective.

High sound pressure levels require safety precautions.

  • The surrounding of siren masts must be equipped with safety barriers to avoid hearing impairments.
  • Wearing adequate ear protection is also necessary when working in immediate vicinity of the siren masts.

 

Summarized

INDUSTRONIC’s Acoustic Siren Horn is a valuable acoustic tool for many industrial applications.

The performance is outstanding if it is used by skilled hands and if it is cleverly planned.

 

Soon we will publish our new Acoustic Siren Horn Brochure there you can learn more on the various fields of application, the mounting options and technical details.
