Offering state of the art technology solutions for todays control needs. E.L. Automation was started in 1995, providing programming services primarily for the Wood Products industry. Since that time the company has grown into a full service control house capable of providing state of the art control solutions for almost any application, large or small. We are a U.L. 508 approved panel shop and are capable of providing complete system installations from engineering and panel construction through to PLC programming and system commissioning. Some of our sawmill applications include multiple debarker log handling systems, log sortlines, Hewsaw & Chip-N-Saw machines, boiler controls, and several multi-drive common DC bus applications with as many as 85 individual drives in the same control network. As a licensed public works contractor, we also have specialized experience in municipal potable and waste water system controls, hydro electric dam controls, and SCADA systems, most recently using new wireless Ethernet technology to solve some of the demanding terrain applications with a more cost effective solution. Some of our other control support comes in many different fields. We currently provide services to companies using plastic rotational molding equipment, concrete and aggregate systems, and are currently developing a control system for Old Castle Materials to use on their portable rock crushing equipment. Although E.L. Automation continues to diversify into new fields, we remain close to our roots in the wood products industry, most recently by partnering with MMRI Corporation, the parent company of AccuDry In-kiln moisture meter systems. As the authorized AccuDry service company, we are happy to offer onsite testing and repair of existing AccuDry systems as well as installation support and commissioning of new systems. We are proud to announce that we are currently in the development stages with MMRI for a new kiln control system based around the Moisture Saturation Point of wood fiber, an AccuDry System exclusive feature. With this new feature, the lumber drying process can be greatly improved, not only just in terms of drying time, but also with reductions in lumber damage due to over drying. Moisture saturation point drying allows for kiln units to be accurately dried until the moisture content of the wood reaches the point that enough moisture has been released from the wood fiber cells that they can then begin a programmed drying recipe based on species. This allows for consistent results on each unit, no matter how high the beginning moisture level.
Americans and Automation in Everyday Life
Americans express more worry than enthusiasm about coming developments in automation – from driverless vehicles to a world in which machines perform many jobs currently done by humans. A Pew Research Center survey of 4,135 U.S. adults conducted May 1-15, 2017, finds that many Americans anticipate significant impacts from various automation technologies in the course of their lifetimes – from the widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles to the replacement of entire job categories with robot workers. To gauge the opinions of everyday Americans on this complex and far-reaching topic, the survey presented respondents with four different scenarios relating to automation technologies. Americans express widespread concern – but also tempered optimism – about the impact of emerging automation technologies. Americans generally express more worry than enthusiasm when asked about these automation technologies. Most prominently, Americans are roughly twice as likely to express worry than enthusiasm about a future in which robots and computers are capable of doing many jobs that are currently done by humans. 76% of Americans expect that economic inequality will become much worse if robots and computers are able to perform many of the jobs that are currently done by humans. Majorities of Americans are reluctant to use emerging automation technologies themselves and express concerns about removing the human element from important decisions. In the event that robots and computers become capable of doing many human jobs, for example, 85% of Americans are in favor of limiting machines to performing primarily those jobs that are dangerous or unhealthy for humans. A key attitudinal divide around emerging automation technologies: Those who are excited to try these technologies themselves versus those who are more hesitant. Many Americans expect a number of professions to be dominated by machines within their lifetimes – but relatively few expect their own jobs or professions to be impacted. Beyond the examples noted above, Americans anticipate significant changes to the nature of jobs and work in the coming decades as a result of automation. 6% of Americans report that they have already been impacted by automation in the form of lost jobs and/or wages. Much of this survey focuses on possible future impacts of automation, but a minority of Americans are already being impacted by these technologies in their own jobs and careers. Many Americans anticipate that various automation technologies will make significant inroads in terms of their development and adoption in the coming decades.
