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.
Many businesses are already using continuous monitoring technologies - like Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices - which is a good start; but the key lies in not just simply monitoring the output of various data (which is how many companies use it today), but by taking the next step and employing advanced algorithms and machine learning to take action from real-time insights and anticipate future outcomes.
With flexible modern CNC manufacturing equipment, any tooling improvements and innovations that are brought to market can be easily integrated. Avoiding a major retrofit that requires huge capital expenditures and tearing up facilities to install new equipment can save manufacturers large amounts of money and improve their bottom line.
Glebar was able to provide a zero defect fully automated no operator automotive cell, which is poised to run millions of parts per year - unattended.
Several different types of electric motors have been developed to address the needs of various manufacturing processes. Let's examine some of the most common types of electric motors and their strengths within the industry.
Training Tomorrow's Manufacturing Leaders: an Inside Look at McKinsey's North American Digital Capability Center (DCC)
The DCC is a unique learning center where companies' leaders and their workforces participate in hands-on, next-gen digital manufacturing workshops. This helps them advance their business operations, design and productivity, and prepare for tomorrow's jobs.
Management might not think that it could happen, but too much growth can overwhelm a manufacturer, as the business breaks down under the stress of expansion. Growth is good, but slow growth is best.

What Is The Super Ion Air Knife? EXAIR's Super Ion Air Knife removes static electricity from plastics, webs, sheet stock and other product surfaces where tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem. The laminar sheet of air sweeps surfaces clean of static, particulate, dust and dirt. Production speeds, product quality, and surface cleanliness can improve dramatically. Why The Super Ion Air Knife? The Super Ion Air Knife floods an area or surface with static eliminating ions - up to 20 feet (6.1m) away. A uniform airflow across its length will not cause misalignments to critical surfaces such as webs. Force can be adjusted from a "blast" to a "breeze". The Super Ion Air Knife is electrically powered, is shockless and has no moving parts. It also requires only 3.7 SCFM of compressed air per foot of length at 5 PSIG (105 SLPM per 300mm of length at 0.3 BAR). Sound level is surprisingly quiet at 50 dBA for most applications.
