industrial grade computers for oil

Preparing For Oil Prices To Stabilize With Industrial Grade Computers

Demand for oil has significantly increased since the early days of this pandemic, but the question of when prices will truly stabilize is worth looking at. The price per barrel of crude oil was at a high of over $70 at the beginning of the year, and has since fallen and leveled off between $40 and $50 per barrel. When can oil producers expect these prices to rise, and how can they best prepare?

According to a new article by the Wall Street Journal, it may take some time. The good news, however, is that the recent approval of multiple vaccines has made the price of oil rise, and we may see prices well into the $60 range. By late 2021, the Wall Street Journal expects prices to restabilize, and the oil market to have completely recovered. In some places such as China, demand has already returned to nearly pre-pandemic levels.

While late 2021 may seem like a long ways away, the reality of the matter is that this timeframe is right around the corner, and prices will rise gradually rather than all at once. Oil producers can prepare for this rise now, and be ready for when prices increase by having their supply chains modernized. With Tangent industrial grade computers, oil production facilities can prepare for an increase in demand in a flexible and efficient manner.

Tangent Industrial Grade Computers For Oil Production

If these last few months have taught us anything, it’s that oil production needs to be flexible. In the early days of this pandemic, oil producers were forced to turn off wells, and were uncertain of the long term damage this could cause said wells. Preparing for situations like these is now in the playbook for oil producers, and flexibility is the name of the game.

With Tangent industrial computers, oil producers can customize their oil rigs, processing plants, and supply chains to maximize their flexibility. With multiple customization options, Tangent Industrial computers can be a part of numerous operations in your oil production chain, regardless of their levels of production.

Tangent’s mini industrial computers like the Rugged Mini E3 are fully customizable, with options for RAM up to 32 gigabytes. This means that they can run as few or as many industrial programs as needed. Their small form factor also allows them to be situated in nearly any part of an oil production facility, or even inside an industrial vehicle as in-vehicle industrial computer.

industrial computers for social distancing in meat processing plants

Protecting Workers In Meat Processing Facilities

While many employees are essential during this pandemic, few fit the label as well as meat processing plant workers. These workers are vital to keeping the nation, and world, fed during these trying times. But more often than they should, these essential workers are falling to the virus at work. This cannot only upend their lives and livelihoods, but hinder the supply of one of the world’s most vital resources: food. Keeping meat processing plant workers safe is synonymous with keeping the global food chain safe, and Tangent is here to help.

Keeping Workers Safe With Social Distancing

The easiest way to keep workers safe in your meat processing plant is to ensure they keep their social distance from one another. While it may be difficult to achieve this when multiple workers are needed in one area, there are some workarounds. Creating “pods” of workers can ensure that if an infection does occur, it only affects a small portion of your facility’s labor force.

Outside of social distancing, replacing workers on the line with industrial computer solutions can help isolate potential outbreaks. With industrial computers, meat processing plants can space out workers while still maintaining the same — or even an increased — level of productivity.

tangent industrial computers for automation

Automation With Industrial Computers On The Rise

Automation is on the rise both nationally and globally, in part because of the ongoing pandemic.85 million jobs are set to be upended by automation by 2025 — that’s according to a report by the World Economic Forum. However, this same automation is also slated to bring 95 million new jobs to the economy, and may help usher in a boom of manufacturing. In the short term, automation with tools such as industrial computers can help factories operate in effective, socially distanced ways. In the long term, automation can help manufacturing facilities survive the pandemic and prosper while doing so.

Industrial Automation With Industrial Grade Computers

It’s no coincidence that automation is on the rise currently. Automation in factories has seen a recent boom even before the pandemic thanks to the introduction of smart factories. Smart factories leverage the latest technology to create cutting edge facilities that often employ more robots than people. These facilities can serve as a blueprint for other factories, including your own.

Industrial Grade Computers-Tangent Industrial Grade Computers

Is U.S. Manufacturing Back?

U.S. manufacturing, like most sectors, took a nosedive at the start of the pandemic. Since then, the sector has seen a drastic and rapid recovery. Today, signs suggest that U.S. manufacturing is finally rounding the corner. Factories are once again outputting goods, demand for these goods is rising, and the economy is seeing stability for the first time in months. But the pandemic is not over, and factories need to continue their vigilance in order to make sure this recovery stays on track.

Contact Tracing Efforts

Contact tracing is crucial to keeping U.S. factories open. When a worker falls ill, the potential for cases to spread is real. Keeping on top of workers with regular testing is key to stopping cases in their tracks, but contact tracing is just as important. Make sure that workers who test positive recall every other worker they interacted with, and all equipment they may have used.

Social Distancing With Industrial Computers

If workers share the same equipment, outbreaks in your facility may be more severe than they otherwise would have been. Giving workers their own workstations with industrial computers can potentially cut back on the potential of widespread cases in your factories.

Industrial computer workstations don’t have to be entire cubicles, with rugged mini PCs they can be as small as your factory requires. Rugged mini PCs are small industrial computers with all the power of their larger counterparts. With Mini industrial PCs, workers can have entire workstations without the square footage they require. Mini industrial computer-based workstations also promote social distancing by allowing every worker to do their tasks on separate devices.

Re-Energize With Tangent

Manufacturing is up, but so are cases. Make sure that your factory is equipped with the technology to keep your workers socially distanced and safe. Tangent industrial computers can help your factory do just that. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

Top 3 Reasons Why Hospitals Need Medical Grade Computers Now More Than Ever

While it may seem that every medical computer is built the same, this is simply not the case. During this pandemic, hospitals need the absolute best tools to use at their discretion. That’s why Tangent medical computers are designed to be versatile tools built for hospital use. Here are three reasons why hospitals need Tangent medical grade computers for their doctors.

Prevent Nosocomial Infections

Now, more than ever, preventing inter-hospital infections is more important than ever. Typically, infections that occur in the hospital are referred to as Nosocomial infections. These can include diseases such as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli. Now however, this can also include infections due to the pandemic. As we head into flu season, preventing nosocomial infections of all kinds is crucial to the wellbeing of hospitals everywhere.

In order to help prevent nosocomial infections, Tangent medical computers come equipped with antimicrobial touchscreens. These touchscreens on medical computers like the M24T are fully adaptive and precise, allowing doctors to easily access patient records and information just as fast as they use their own cell phones. With antimicrobial coatings, disease causing pathogens are unable to survive on the surface of Tangent medical computer screens and quickly die off. This built-in sanitizing system can help prevent doctors from spreading infections to one another via commonly shared medical computers.

IP65-Rated Water Resistant And Dust Sealed

Tangent medical computers feature antimicrobial touchscreens to keep hospitals clean. In addition to these antimicrobial touchscreens, Tangent medical computers are IP rated to be water and dust resistant. IP ratings allow medical grade computers like the Medix 22 to be cleaned regularly without worry of internal damage to the computer. With medical computers from Tangent, both the front and back panels fo the medical computer can be cleaned easily and safely.

With the IP rating also comes a sealed design that mitigates the growth of pathogens inside the medical computer as well. With a fanless cooling system, the Medix 22 does not build up dust inside its enclosure, keeping maintenance requirements low and bacteria breeding grounds absent.

Built-in Telehealth And Telemedicine Capabilities

The pandemic has forced many healthcare providers to rely on telehealth and telemedicine services. Likewise, some medical computer companies have had to scramble to produce medical computers built for telehealth and telemedicine.

But at Tangent, every medical computer has been built with telemedicine in mind since before the pandemic began. Tangent believes that telemedicine is a vital technology that has allowed mobility-impaired individuals to get the quality medical care they deserve. Now, everyone from those who are healthy to those who are at-risk can make use of virtual medical appointments to get the care they need.
