The greatest benefit seems to be in complex control of the factory. A SCADA system is extremely useful for all of the workers on the production team. The operator has the main overview of the production in real time, the technologist is able to reconfigure the recipes from the office when itÂ's necessary, for maintenance it is important when and why the failures happened and the shift leader can check who is responsible for that.
Every single product we manufacture from shafts, heads, shoulder pads and gloves at some point had gone through the 3D printing process.
By embracing the cloud, manufacturers no longer simply collect data but instead, gain actionable insights from it. Whether it's for quality improvement, sales forecasts or preventative maintenance, predictive analytics or machine learning can give manufacturers an edge over their competitors and possibly, a complete new service to sell.
Measuring the number of perfect picks, volume of picks, savings by replacing traditional RF guns are data points that allow 3PLs (third party logistics) to quantify both a rapid ROI (return on investment) and TCO (total cost of ownership)
IIoT-ready Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) allow manufacturers to take data from the floor and share it with a local or cloud-based server, where it can be used company-wide, regardless of the user's location. The translation of machine data to actionable information allows companies to make cost-saving decisions and allocate resources more appropriately.
Industry 4.0 has been called the 'Fourth industrial Revolution', but unlike the first three, this revolution will be implemented at all sizes of manufacturing operations, not just large-scale corporate ones.
Overall, the benefits of virtual simulation outweigh traditional design methods on numerous levels, enabling product design timescales to be met more efficiently, and ultimately in a way that helps companies to innovate and grow.
Your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system needs to move at the speed of your business.
One can only imagine where camera technology is heading if autonomous cars and smart fridges are becoming the new norm. What about imaging systems in your clothes, on your skin or on your pets? It's all in the realm of possibility.
Instead of viewing 3D printing as a replacement to the standard process of CNC machining, those who have successfully merged the two technologies view additive manufacturing as a process that can complement their current operations.
The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.
As automated production kicks in and increases the quantity of finished products, has the manufacturer considered the just in time inventory requirement changes necessary to meet production deadlines?
The food production manufacturer previously used hydraulic motors to drive the conveyor system. However, the open environment of the application presented several mechanical issues for the motors.
A robot's abnormal condition can be detected early via data comparison, so a high-speed equipment monitoring solution must be able to acquire analog signals at the rate of 1000 signals per second. Then the collected signals need to be delivered to the control room for monitoring management and data analysis.
As a result of the current government administration and the increased desire for products made in America, we're going to continue to see a sizeable infrastructure investment in the industry.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
