When it comes to linear actuators, the housing, fasteners, rod, gasket and seals need to have the required corrosion resistance in order for the actuator to withstand the environment.
The world of industry has been steadily advancing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and this new move toward data-driven manufacturing strategy is simply the next step in revolutionizing the industry.
Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.

So how can you improve the value stream while reducing wasted time and money to incorporate lean manufacturing principles? The answer lies in one word: Automation.
Linda Rosencrance for TechTarget: Given the exploding industrial internet of things market, surveying the choices can be overwhelming. To get you started, here's a look at three platforms and their focus areas.
Many companies have made significant investment in control systems that look at individual types of machines. But a single process may use many different machines that speak different languages and have different control requirements.
Chris Grove for MBT Mag: Some organizations have a false sense of security and believe their industrial control systems can't be easily compromised.
By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.
Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.
Connected Manufacturing is the ability to drive data that is meaningful to the cloud for big data analysis. The current trend in Industry 4.0 is to be able to sense specific points in end equipment to enable advanced analytics to be run on distributed edge computing devices to determine whether machines are operating within tolerances and predict a potential failure before it happens.
By connecting their factories all over the world, manufacturers can see the entire operation. They can make updates in real-time. They have vision into which plants are running efficiently or where there are production issues.
Although it's still in an evolutionary state, big data is already showing tremendous potential across nearly all industries, professions and applications.
