The first example of "Collaborative Industry" in the Italian ceramic manufacturing district has been set up with Ceramiche Mariner thanks to System Ceramics' Prime.
The complete digitalization of processes, the use of shared resources and the efficient management of data are fundamental elements for the development of a new industrial model designed for flexibility and sustainability.
Amidst massive uncertainty, one thing is crystal clear: business-as-usual is no longer an option. Now is the time when digitizing the factory floor becomes critical for survival.
The essential thing to remember is that humans will remain central to success, regardless of the level of technology deployment and there is not a silver bullet. So, what is the answer for best leveraging technology innovation?
Iota has developed a framework called the Sustainability Process Blueprint that allows businesses to easily monitor, measure, and curate data pertaining to their sustainability performance.
During POC projects in the last few years, many organizations have confirmed the benefits that IIoT can bring to a wide variety of industries - and IoT spending is expected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2025, according to IDC.
The analysis of the operating conditions improves maintenance and allows more precise predictions to be made on usage behaviour, wear and tear, and malfunctions using "big data" approaches - the availability of lift systems is thus optimized.
Data is the new Black Gold but if you are gathering data and not using it effectively then you are paying for data transmission and storage andiIt just becomes white noise and adds no value.
Blockchain has proven an effective salve for the dwindling trust in today's supply chains. It enables a network-wide protocol that helps reduce "trust tax," or the costs of maintaining trust.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
