There is no doubt that sensors have enabled the rapid uptake of IIoT. The smarter the sensors are getting, the more impressive the IIoT realm is becoming.
Digitizing manufacturing and the supply chain require that technologies can connect assets, collect data and extract information. Our 0G network enables this by allowing real time data access and visibility. As a result, we help customers transform information into action.
"What makes the digital thread so important is that to leverage all the data, you need to also manage how the data connects to the rest of the operation and how it flows from one process to another."
We still have a long way to go before we can truly enjoy the countless benefits AI has to offer. Not only that, but for AI and ML (machine learning) to gain real, feasible meaning in manufacturing and beyond, there are a few steps the industry needs to take.
With NIMS' emphasis on manufacturing skills training, credentialing, and standards, plus Festo's complete Industry 4.0 learning Factories, courseware and eLearning integration, the two organizations are well poised to provide the training programs for Industry 4.0.
Booth #2165 - visitors will learn more about how Mazak's HYBRID Multi-Tasking innovations create new levels of cost efficiency.
Booth #427 - At our booth, we will highlight case studies and success stories from Volkswagen, Ford and L'Oreal. These are all prime examples of companies who digitally distribute among different facilities and all manufacture locally.
Automation Alley's 2019 Technology in Industry Report looks at Industry 4.0 ecosystem, introduces Velocity Index™ to gauge investment-worthiness of key technologies
Industry 4.0: From Vision to Implementation, looks at the state of Industry 4.0 from its eight core technologies: the Industrial Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, Big Data, cloud computing, cybersecurity, additive manufacturing and advanced materials.
According to supply chain and logistics consulting firm MWPVL International, when the storage capacity of a warehouse distribution center surpasses the 85% utilization level, there is also a reduction in productivity.
Friend or foe? Helper or fiend? Here's what robotics really mean for the cutting tools industry and what are the pitfalls to watch out for.
Headlines suggest that manufacturing is coming home. However, a renaissance of America's industry was never going to be that simple, particularly for small and medium sized manufacturers.
The customer required precision rotary axis control in the lowest profile form factor for multiple sequential robot arm joints. Key additional requirements included minimal movement at start-up to report absolute position...
A Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC, is a ruggedized computer used for industrial automation. These controllers can automate a specific process, machine function, or even an entire production line.
Using available data, manufacturers can identify changes or anomalies in demand, combined with accurate risk management and forecasting solutions.
For the grinding machine producer Strausak, the robot manufacturer Stäubli and the encoder supplier HEIDENHAIN, the insertion of cylindrical tools into tool holders with a robot arm was a real challenge-and therefore a task made to measure.
