In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.
FLCs can be used in standalone applications or as a way to expand I/O without adding more I/O points to a PLC.
Demands for greater variety, lower cost, improved quality, and smaller batch sizes can turn a prosperous production into a fading one. Fully automated production cells can resolve the issue.
In addition to production metrics, manufacturing equipment statuses are also displayed. Operators or maintenance workers can quickly see and react if a machine is operational, being resupplied or out of service based on the icons and colors associate to the equipment on the display.
Next shoring involves moving a companys production capacity to where the market for the goods is. For U.S. centered companies, serving American markets, this is the same as reshoring, as reshoring entails moving production capacity back to the U.S. to meet production demands in U.S. markets.
Additive manufacturing represents a seachange for the manufacturing sector. In many cases, 3D printing has resulted in an immediate, cost-effective solution to an issue. More importantly, it has resulted in a complete re-engineering of parts, so that they are now better suited for the dedicated function they are intended to serve.
What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.
Ease of access, improved productivity and automated decision-making are amongst the primary benefits of the IIoT. Those who hesitate are bound to suffer serious setbacks in output, customer service and overall competitiveness in the comings months and years.
To meet consumer demands for authentic and fresh-tasting foods, some innovative packaging technologies are doing the job normally given to preservatives, enabling manufacturers to keep the ingredient list to a minimum.
IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.
We currently offer telemetry devices and cloud based dashboards for our customers to collect process data from remote instrumentation and provide dashboards and operational efficiencies for supply chain management with our Supplycare service offering.
Too much data, little of which can be accessed and used effectively. From tuggers, AGCs (Automated Guided Carts), and AGVs, there is a real need to include IIoT monitoring.
Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.
Manufacturers are increasing productivity 15-20% by addressing a flaw in toolholder-retention knob design that affects precision and increases cycle time.
The IoT is more than a smart meter or the like. It is a complete new wave of automation that includes everything from omni-sensing to artificial intelligence, from smartphones to smart homes, and from smart industries to smart cities.
