ESAB’s comprehensive portfofolio of PPE optimise s safefety in the workplace fofor today’s welder s


SAB Welding and Cutting has long been a health and safety pioneer, producing PPE which optimises the removal of welding fumes to ensure a safe environment for all operators.

Among the many products ESAB supplies are the Sentinel™ A50 and Sentinel A50 Air high-performance automatic welding helmets. The latter of which incorporates a PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) unit. The Sentinel’s radical design incorporates ergonomic headgear and maximum adjustability to increase productivity, functionality and usability. The Sentinel A50’s high-tech features include an almost infinitely adjustable 5-point headgear, a 100 x 60mm viewing area, an externally activated Grind Button, a colour touch screen control panel

ABBwi ll show‘f‘factory of the future’ at PPMA 2019

ABB to show how the ingredients of an advanced factory come together to achieve customized, yet rapid production for demanding consumers

BB will bring together the elements of a ‘factory of the future’ at PPMA 2019, at the Birmingham NEC, 1st – 3rd October 2019, demonstrating how its latest automation and robotics tech- nologies can transform performance in food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.


Stand F80 will feature examples from ABB’s extensive automation and digital portfolio, showing how tomorrow’s factory will be able to

respond rapidly to changing customer demands, while maintaining profitability, safety and quality. Among the demonstrations will be ABB’s SCARA demo cell, showing how the precision, repeatability and rapid cycle time of ABB’s IRB 910SC (SCARA) robot can bring flexibility to pick an Another robot cell will show how humans and automated production lines Companies looking to build flexible automation solutions can view the PLC range. Stand F80 will also feature ABB’s WiMon Conditioning Monitoring System and the new NiTe temperature sensor.
