This workshop aims to help attendees understand and respond to the Industry 4.0 trend through lectures, discussions, factory use cases, and industry 4.0 technology demonstration. It begins with a broad overview of Industry 4.0 concepts, targeting manufacturing executives and decisions makers who want to understand what industry 4.0 is and how they can get their organizations ready for it. Following the introduction, follow-on workshop modules take a deeper dive into industry 4.0 details, addressing the needs of production and technical managers. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a strong understanding of Industry 4.0 and how it can be used to solve business problems and deliver higher value to customers.

“I am very excited and honored to Chair the Workshop,” said Shivakumar Mathapathi, Adjunct Professor, and International Co-coordinator - Sonoma State University. “The IIoT Workshop is designed to help startups, mid-size, and large companies to come together and build world-class industrial IoT solutions. We are very fortunate to work with Fraunhofer USA CESE to bring few real-time Industrial IoT use cases,” added Professor Mathapathi.

“This is a unique experience to work with Sensors Midwest delegates, to share Industrial IoT research, connecting machines with real-time sensor data, making machinery more intelligent to deliver efficient and optimum results,” said Dr. Pankesh Patel, Senior Research Scientist, Fraunhofer USA CESE.

“I am very happy to be associated with Sensors Midwest and Fraunhofer to lead the workshop in evaluating the process,” expressed Dr. Farid Farahmand, Chair, Department of Engineering Science, Sonoma State University.

The IoT Enabled Industry 4.0 Certification Workshop consists of a wide range of technology, building IoT blocks, connectivity, and cloud solutions. The basic framework and examples created by Fraunhofer will further expand building, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and how robotics equipment are in a more secure way of connection. The Workshop also assists attendees plan for digital transformation for various tasks within their enterprise/manufacturing environment. Each attendee receives an IIoT completion certification.

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ is the ideal solution for countless applications.
