Specialised maintenance tools revolutionise wind turbine brake maintenance
Some large wind turbines feature a yaw brake. Heavy and difficult to maintain in the field, lifting and positioning brakes is a sizable challenge in confined spaces, but maintenance is critical to minimising operational downtime.

Securing the Edge of the Network
As IIoT-enabled devices usher in a new era of connected factory floors, manufacturers must be sure to protect critical equipment at the edge of their production networks. Companies are rapidly investing in edge computing, which enables data and analytics gathering at the source, pushing computing applications, data and services away from centralized locations. While traditionally, managing operational technology (OT) security systems was a major organizational headache, innovation in the manufacturing industry has helped establish a go-to set of best practices for securing the edge.
