Sit On It! - But Probably Don't

There are occasions that we remain standing for most of the day which helps me stay healthy. However, when we are not in the field we take on the responsibilities of a bench technician; where we work on implementing new testing procedures and finalize service reports. We also do in-house repairs and customer service by providing tech support, and we perform most of these duties while sitting down at our desk.

What Makes A Factory Smart?

Drive Fire

I recently heard that a Roman from the 1st century A.D. would find a lot in common with the technology and daily life of the English from the 17th century. And that daily life sounded pretty rough.

For centuries, the English diet consisted mostly of dark rye bread and porridge, with very little meat. As a rule, Europeans ate few fruits or vegetables, believing they could cause disease, depression, and flatulence.

Most people were illiterate and rarely bathed. Their idea of healthcare was that physical suffering from an illness was God’s divine way of purifying the soul.

The Industrial Revolution changed the world drastically and continues to evolve. We're pretty excited to be part of that change, and excited to work in and with "Smart Factorys"

Most manufacturing facilities use floor tape or painted lines on the floor to differentiate various zones and personnel traffic areas. Knowing what color the DANGER or Hazardous areas are marked with is very important to your life expectancy as a Field Service Technician. However there are currently no government-mandated regulations regarding Floor tape color codes.

Don't Start No Static!

Mar 17, 2017 1:12:02 PM

Reducing Static

Electro-static discharge (ESD) can be a serious problem when handling electronic equipment. It can cause permanent damage in both an immediate and latent fashion causing components to fail prematurely. The little electric arc we produce when touching a door knob is somewhere between 2,000 and can be as much as 35,000 volts!
