Software improves SEM monitoring device by offering greater versatility and security for recording readings
There are many demanding environments in the industrial sector. Whether it's the vigorous vibrations of heavy processing machinery or the intense temperatures of smelting applications, these harsh environments place a great pressure on automation controllers and electronics on the factory floor - often resulting in performance becoming secondary to ruggedisation in industrial PC (IPC) specification. Here, David Evanson, corporate vendor relationship manager at industrial automation expert Novotek UK and Ireland, explains how engineers can balance performance and durability in IPCs.
Rapid evolution in AI technology is infusing IoT devices with new capabilities, leading to the new trend of AIoT. Simply speaking, IoT devices acquire data then transmit that data through the network to an integrated backend system.
Universities in the North West of England and IN4.0 Group are offering 30 Greater Manchester SMEs free fully funded training in data science and AI technology over the next 12 months.
The industrial sector always has, and always will, thrive on data. Whether it's the simple signals shared between rudimentary control systems or performance indicators recorded by engineers to monitor system health, data plays an integral role in the continuity and improvement of industrial processes. With greater machine-to-machine connectivity, the speed, stability and security of network communication of data becomes vital. Here, David Evanson, corporate vendor relationship manager at Novotek UK and Ireland, explains why a black box OPC gateway offers a simple solution to modern network requirements.
Rejected goods have always been an issue for the food industry around the world. They not only have a negative impact on sales, they generate additional recycling costs and affect ecological balance sheets. FuTech Solution's unpacking machine 'Skinner' solves this problem by mechanically removing faulty products/packaging from their packaging. This allows for fully automated production of reworks so that companies can work more efficiently and more sustainably.

Independent Research Surveys Manufacturing Executives: Real-Time Data from Connected Factory is Key to Driving Innovation and Delivering Competitive Advantages
The study, based on a survey of more than 300 manufacturing, operations, and connectivity executives across the globe, found that 85% of high maturity firms are currently using Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies across much of the factory floor, compared to 17% of low maturity organizations. Over half (53%) of low maturity organizations report that their legacy equipment is unable to communicate with other assets.
Manufacturing is forecast to come roaring back in the second half of 2021, according to many leading indices. This is fantastic news for the US economy but poses significant challenges for the manufacturing sector.
