To pursue a sustainable future, manufacturers need to find options to increase energy efficiency. Industrial robotics is an ideal way to help improve sustainability and minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing activities.
Location-Based Automation- Why a Digital Twin of Moving Things is the Missing Piece for Successful Industrial Automation
This article outlines why the promising concept of the digital twin has often fallen short of its goal of end-to-end automation and connectivity.
The demand for data from both OT teams and cloud and enterprise systems has grown exponentially, but the manufacturing industry is still tied closely to the Purdue Model.
Manufacturers are facing a troubling scenario: the need to maintain production levels in the midst of the largest workforce shakeup in our lifetime. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides a highly effective, flexible and cost-efficient solution.
Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom once said, "machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make". AI decision making, with real time communication and data analytics, has the ability to transform the way manufacturers understand machines.
With rapid advancement in automated and connected technologies, managing both new and old equipment simultaneously can be a challenging balancing act.
Siemens used IoT sensors and data analytics to create a digital twin of the factory. By analyzing and adjusting various parts of this model, the facility could see where inefficiencies were and which changes would have the greatest impact.
The Intel announcement is a recognition of the value of U.S.-based manufacturing, and the business will support a very long supply chain of semiconductor assembly tool designs and manufacturing in the U.S.
The benefits of industry 4.0 in manufacturing are clear, but unlocking them requires organizations to overcome capacity constraints. The keys are in these change management strategies.
Asset Performance Management software must evolve into knowledge hubs that not only deal with monitoring, but also gathering data from other dependent systems to provide much deeper insights and greater control.
Cables with the proper shielding, i.e. foil plus braided shield or semi-conductive fleece with foil and a braid shield, prevent the VFD system from radiating electrical noise that can interfere with the surrounding networking, wireless communication, and industrial devices.
Those manufacturers that digitize their operations will gain significant advantages, and those that don't will have a more difficult time catching up.
The company's unique objectives required PSbyM to modify its own processes for the six-month engagement. First, a far more detailed assessment of operations was completed by practitioners, including focus groups and deep dives into equipment-design elements.
With more and more data comes the need for storage and fast access which means that technology like DDR5 has never been more important.
A 2020 survey conducted by industrial automation provider Yokogawa revealed that 48 per cent of respondents valued productivity as a key focus in their digitalization strategies, while 40 per cent regarded operational efficiency as their main objective.
