How can controls, automation, and instrumentation help with integration and use of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies?
When plant operators turn to a virtual desktop infrastructure to run their industrial plant processes, they need an endpoint device that can reliably deliver the efficiency they are looking for in spite of harsh plant conditions.
In terms of manufacturing, flexibility refers to the machines being adaptable and responsive to change. In the case of flexible manufacturing, the machines are able to adapt processes and scale their operations according to different situations...
Using the robots built-in Wi-Fi interface, operators will use tablets installed at each press to call the robot to pick up finished products and take them directly to the quality department, optimizing the robots use.
By tapping into existing maintenance or equipment logs, a manufacturer can apply machine learning to predict which connected devices or machines will be in need of servicing or forecast required inventory levels across warehouse locations...
Being prepared can help prevent costly equipment or facility damage. You can't avoid every disaster, but being ready for them when they do occur can help reduce downtime and save you a lot of money on equipment repair and replacement in the long run.
A completely replaced controls system. 5 panels with all they contain. Under 7 days downtime. 100% production on day 1.
Think of AR in an IIoT manufacturing context: now technicians with AR can remotely monitor, change and maintain systems without putting the operator in danger; however, AR requires a massive amount of network resources.
The Xiamen Hub is ABBs largest and one of our most advanced manufacturing sites, and it demonstrates the potential of Industry 4.0 on our own premises.
Partnering with tech companies whose investments in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are aimed at streamlining manufacturing processes is the shortest, most reliable route to your company winning the future.
Manufacturers, who invest in the latest manufacturing technologies and innovation ecosystems, will become more competitive than those who compete on price alone. Advanced technologies are producing better quality products, that, in turn, deliver higher margins ...
Watson and Crick. Lennon and McCartney. Hewlett and Packard. Three examples of successful collaborations whose achievements had a dramatic and long-term impact on their respective industries.
Big data and automation represent two very important tools that should help us create a brand-new type of manufacturing that doesn't require as much constant human attention and effort. It should, at the same time, vastly improve the safety and accuracy ...
Intrinsic safety has a unique advantage over other ignition protection methods. Because trained personnel can connect and disconnect live circuits, it is possible to remove and replace intrinsically safe devices in hazardous areas.
Milestone investment will combine connected digital technologies, state-of-the-art collaborative robotics and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research to create the most sophisticated, automated and flexible Factory of the Future.
