    How Johnson Electric solves Truckers’ Top 5 Frustrations with Semi-Truck Solenoids

    March 6, 2020

    Solenoids may be the most important part of a semi-truck you’ve never heard of before. Even those with decades of experience in the trucking and manufacturing industries may not know the important role a solenoid plays in the daily life of a truck driver. Any driver who has been out on the road for long, though, will be very familiar with the solenoid and the role it plays in getting them and their cargo from Point A to Point B. Understanding and overcoming those frustrations can lead to happier drivers as well as more efficient deliveries. Here are five common … Continue reading How Johnson Electric solves Truckers’ Top 5 Frustrations with Semi-Truck Solenoids

    The True Cost of Unscheduled Downtime Due to Electrical Equipment Failure in Your Warehouse

    February 11, 2020

    Modern warehouses and distribution centers rely heavily on their electrical equipment. This machinery helps move products from the shelf to the shipping area. The more efficiently that movement happens, the lower your costs are, and the better your bottom line. But when that electrical equipment fails, that unscheduled downtime can translate into significant losses for your company. According to The Manufacturer, 46% of unplanned downtime is due to hardware failure and malfunction. That means the operational integrity of your electrical equipment plays a significant role in both the productivity and profitability of your warehouse. The real costs of unscheduled downtime … Continue reading The True Cost of Unscheduled Downtime Due to Electrical Equipment Failure in Your Warehouse

    Porch Pirates Creating Product Opportunities

    February 10, 2020

    Where’s My Package? With e-commerce on the rise and not planning to slow down anytime soon, the need to protect shipments is becoming an industry in its own. According to Shorr Packaging, out of over a thousand people who were surveyed 24% had personally experienced package theft. This number does show a nearly 7% decrease over the past two years; but it still amounts to billions of dollars lost for companies like Amazon who typically will ship replacement products. That means not only does the retailer pay for the products stolen; they also pay the shipping and logistical costs to … Continue reading Porch Pirates Creating Product Opportunities

    How the Hybrid and Electric Cars Segment is Growing

    February 4, 2020

    Electric and hybrid vehicles are, in many people’s view, the way of the future. According to Mordor Intelligence, the hybrid vehicle market is likely to increase by 10.23% between now and 2024, with the most significant growth being in Asia. Hybrid and electric cars are growing in popularity as gas prices rise, government incentives are put in play, and environmental concerns become more important. The following factors are driving the growth of the segment: Increased Range The range of electric vehicles and the electric-only range of hybrids continues to grow. Although not everyone can afford a Tesla with a range … Continue reading How the Hybrid and Electric Cars Segment is Growing

    Growth in the Market for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

    January 28, 2020

    Electric vehicles (EV) are not new to automotive markets. Beginning with the automaker giant, Tesla, other OEMs have supercharged their efforts in bringing affordable, reliable, and safe electric vehicles to the masses. Many inventors, entrepreneurs, presidents and automakers have been fascinated with the transfer of electricity in some form or another. The earliest commercial use of electricity to power an electric vehicle was exhibited in an experimental train; it ran briefly between Washington and Baltimore (about 40 miles) in 1851. Although that experiment ultimately failed, we take note at the progress we’ve made over the last 170 years. As the … Continue reading Growth in the Market for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

    A Solenoid’s Place in High Speed Parcel Processing

    January 20, 2020

    Authored by: Cody Link Rising Shipment Rates With the ever increasing E-Commerce market, parcel sorting will be a number one priority. It is estimated that packages being delivered by conveyor will reach up to 16 billion this year, and this number doesn’t include internationally, which will run up to around 87 billion packages. With industry juggernauts like Amazon now providing not only two day shipping, but now doing one day shipping and delivering perishable foods this requires shippers to further automate their processes which need faster machines in order to keep their lines running efficiently and in line with customer … Continue reading A Solenoid’s Place in High Speed Parcel Processing

    7 Ways Your Production Tooling Manufacturer Can Help You Achieve Cost Efficiencies

    September 30, 2019

    Production tooling and machine fabrication are key to producing many electric components. Many electrical tools, cabinets, and other products require significant design and manufacturing. Whether designing parts for further manufacturing, tools, or other uses, a great production tooling manufacturer will help you achieve cost efficiencies. Long-Term Manufacturing Relationships When it comes to work processes, long-term relationships are the greatest help in achieving cost efficiencies. A manufacturer who has a relationship with its customers delivers consistent products and tools; they manage budget needs, and can free up customers to focus on running the business, instead of managing the supply chain. What … Continue reading 7 Ways Your Production Tooling Manufacturer Can Help You Achieve Cost Efficiencies

    The 5 Best Industry Applications For Linear And Rotary Solenoids

    September 25, 2019

    Electromechanical devices (e.g., linear and rotary solenoids) play a tremendous role in manufacturing processes and thousands of consumer products which make our lives easier and more productive. Both linear and rotary solenoids operate by converting an electrical signal into a magnetic field, which is then translated into linear or rotary motion. When the ferromagnetic actuator, or “plunger,” slides “IN” and “OUT,” this robotic motion is harnessed to either continuously hold a position or to operate as an ON-OFF pulse (latching). Through Johnson Electric’s innovative engineering and design, linear and rotary solenoids can operate in all environmental conditions at extremely high speeds, with an … Continue reading The 5 Best Industry Applications For Linear And Rotary Solenoids

    The 5 Key Advantages of Magnetic Latching Solenoids

    September 19, 2019

    In standard solenoid valves, the solenoid requires the introduction of an electric current to produce a magnetic field. This magnetic field pulls the plunger away from the opening and allows the valve to open. With standard solenoid valves, they must continuously receive electrical power to keep the plunger in the open position, which makes them inefficient compared to magnetic solenoids. Magnetic latching solenoids have a small permanent magnet fitted on top of the valve. The introduction of the permanent magnet allows the valve to stay open even after the electrical power is turned off, offering more significant energy saving options … Continue reading The 5 Key Advantages of Magnetic Latching Solenoids

  • Transportation Industry In A “Buzz” Over Haptics

    May 15, 2019

    by Tony Gonzalez When A “Buzz” Can Save A Life According to the National Highway Safety Administration, 3.2% of crashes attributed to the driver were the result of “…being sleepy or actually sleeping at the time of the crash.” In 2017, drowsy driving “claimed 795 lives,” and this is just one type of driver impairment. Though no alert system will prevent all accidents, the haptic “buzz” can mitigate the risk and potentially save a life. People unfamiliar with the word “haptic” have a working knowledge of the term through their smartphones. The “buzz” they feel when there is an alert … Continue reading Transportation Industry In A “Buzz” Over Haptics
