What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.
Ease of access, improved productivity and automated decision-making are amongst the primary benefits of the IIoT. Those who hesitate are bound to suffer serious setbacks in output, customer service and overall competitiveness in the comings months and years.
Together, well-designed technology and people drive solutions. LES is a tool that empowers workers with real-time information to see and solve production problems and create innovation.
To meet consumer demands for authentic and fresh-tasting foods, some innovative packaging technologies are doing the job normally given to preservatives, enabling manufacturers to keep the ingredient list to a minimum.
Visitors to our booth S-7527 will be able to try out the HTC Vive Virtual Reality (VR) headset to visualize typical end of line automated solutions. Any Emulate3D, Sim3D, or Demo3D model can be easily viewed in VR, which provides a genuinely immersive experience which puts you in the facility with the running equipment or system.
Visitors to the Beckhoff booth will again be able to "BYOD", using their own smartphones and tablets to connect with PC-based control demos - including a wall of IoT-enabled devices, plus articulated robot arms from Stäubli - using any mobile device with a web browser.
New method combines precision printing of stretchable conductive inks with pick-and-place of electronic components to make flexible, wearable sensors.
The capability to deliver information instead of just data, and to do it in real-time, has significantly changed the whole data collection model.
As many manufacturers don't have large IT departments, employing each of SMAC's four components is a good way to propel production toward growth and increased efficiency. The four components are: Social, Mobility, Analytics, and Cloud.
We now make the part from solid, less expensive bar stock -- the whole part, including putting points on the end of the fins for water flow, taking cycle time down to 35% of what is used to take machining extruded stock. And now it is a stronger part as well.
Predictive maintenance is revolutionizing the industry and transforming the entire operation. This technology predicts problems in a factory before they even happen, changing the paradigm and preventing disasters.
IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.
We currently offer telemetry devices and cloud based dashboards for our customers to collect process data from remote instrumentation and provide dashboards and operational efficiencies for supply chain management with our Supplycare service offering.
Nobody's bottom line is more valuable than the human lives that help create it. To that end, consider the following best practices for shoring up safety in your facility.
PACK EXPO will be held from September 25th - 27th in Las Vegas. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
