AEMT - Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades

The Journal to become Renew Magazine!
Thomas Marks, editor of the Journal Magazine, and Secretary of the AEMT reveals the next evolution of the trade magazine:
It is with great delight that I’m able to tell you of exciting plans in foot for the future of the AEMT Journal. For the past few months we have been in discussion with a team of people to take the publication forward. While we have always had great feedback on the publication, it was felt that it was important to open the publication up to a larger audience. With the new team in place, the stories the association conveys will start to be read by the whole engineering industry. 

I asked the new editor of the magazine, Chris Callander, to introduce the new team and their plans: 

“Myself and my colleague Andrew Castle were delighted to be asked by the AEMT to take forward the evolution of the association’s ‘Journal’.

From the next issue, we will be working alongside the AEMT team to bring you a new title called Renew. This new publication plans to build on the excellent role the Journal played in keeping the association’s membership up to date with it, and its members work.  

However, the AEMT is keen to see the scope of its publication broaden. While news from the association is still seen as core content to communicate, there is a desire to share additional content which promotes the work of member companies to their customers.

To that end, we will be introducing more technical features and application stories illustrating and promoting best practice in the delivery of energy efficiency, sustainability and the circular economy. We will also have comment pieces and multi-perspective explorations of key topics.

This feature-based content will be accompanied by industry news looking at general electrical and mechanical news and views, compliance and legislation updates, technical Q&As and opinion-based thought leadership on topical issues facing the electro-mechanical industry. 

This new editorial approach is designed to reinforce the perception of the AEMT and its members as the leading authorities where the service, maintenance, repair, overhaul and replacement of electro-mechanical equipment is concerned.

My role will be to commission, create and collate the content. I will be reaching out soon, but if you think you have content that will fit our remit, please get in touch with me at chris@renew-mag.com.  

As well as broadening the publication’s content, we will also be expanding the circulation to reach many more end-users of electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. This will give greater opportunity for AEMT members to influence those individuals with responsibility for maintaining the safe and efficient operation of electrical and mechanical plant and equipment throughout the manufacturing and process industries.

Some of you will know Andrew from his work on the AEMT Awards programme. Andrew will be looking after the commercial side of Renew, helping members benefit from various opportunities to reach this new, expanded audience. Anyone interested in finding out more about these opportunities can contact Andrew at andrew@renew-mag.co.uk.

On behalf of Andrew and myself, I look forward to working with you all.” Chris Callander, Editor of Renew Magazine to be launched in Autumn 2020.

Over the past 30-plus years, we have been made more aware of the impact of global warming and the consequences it has on our everyday lives. Corporations and individuals alike have a responsibility to reduce waste and strive to be more efficient with the resources we use. Improving the efficiency of electrical equipment reduces the demand on generation plants, allowing renewable sources to produce a greater proportion of the overall requirement. Thomas Marks, AEMT Secretary, looks at how the service and repair sector can help operators of electrical equipment to reduce running costs and their environmental impact at the same time.

Operating equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres comes with a certain amount of responsibility, not least to use correctly designed components that have the features necessary for the environment. When maintenance and repairs are required, it is important that operators understand what is expected of them to ensure continued safety and reliability. Karl Metcalfe, Technical Support for the AEMT, looks at the knowledge and responsibilities that are expected when it comes to managing electric motors in zoned areas.
