GE and Microsoft expand partnership to accelerate IIoT adoption

Malek Murison for Internet of Business:  GE and Microsoft have significantly expanded their partnership to provide a simpler path for industrial companies taking on digital transformation projects.

The move will see GE Digital standardise its Predix solutions for Microsoft Azure, and integrate the Predix portfolio with Azure’s cloud-based data and analytics tools.

GE and Microsoft will co-sell their combined IIoT solutions across a range of verticals. Meanwhile, GE will be harnessing Microsoft Azure to streamline its own business processes, applying Azure’s IT workload and productivity tools to drive innovation internally.

Microsoft and GE are betting on industrial customers seeing the value in a joint solution that combines GE Digital’s expertise in industrial data-gathering, storage, and analysis, with Microsoft’s expanding range of cloud tools.  Full Article:

SICK, Inc. - Low-Cost LiDAR: Higher Technology That's Easy to Use

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
