Robotics can be narrowed down to five types: Cartesian, Cylindrical, SCARA, 6-Axis and Delta. Each robotic type has specific elements that make them best-suited for different applications. The main differentiators among them are their speed, size and workspace. Knowledge of each type can help machine designers choose the best robot for their process.

Considering the number of variables present, gaining precise control of a process heating application can be a difficult task. In industries with a low tolerance for irregularities and a high demand for consistent quality, controlling the temperature of a substance from the start to the finish of a process is an absolute necessity.

Just as sound can have negative effects on the human body, certain frequencies can play havoc on industrial equipment. When control valves are not selected appropriately, there is an increased risk for cavitation, which causes high noise and vibration levels, resulting in very rapid damage to the valve's internals and/or the downstream piping.
