EIT Digital's strives past "fix it when it's broken" approach, with predictive service for printers

In the current business environment, manufacturers rely on the so-called corrective ("fix it when it's broken" approach) or preventive (replace parts before their exceed their expected lifespan) maintenance to ensure performance and durability of commercial printing equipment. But these two approaches are increasingly inadequate for today's fast-paced economy, in which businesses calibrate production based on actual market demand and then need to satisfy it almost in real time. Predictive maintenance for printers, a new activity being supported by EIT Digital as part of its OEDIPUS High Impact Initiative, is taking an alternative path, focused on predicting, rather than correcting or preventing potential issues. Oc, together with Siemens and technology providers CEA are developing a solution which, analyzing sensor data produced by commercial printers, will allow to determine when a part, or multiple parts, are starting to fail, so corrective actions can be taken.

The Importance of the Edge for the Industrial Internet of Things in the Energy Industry

For the purposes of this paper, the "edge" is defined as the network entry points or data sources that are in the field on the opposite end of the network from the centralized host. In networking terms, an edge device provides an entry point into enterprise or service provider core networks.

Improving Efficiency in Counting Applications

Now that counting scales can store information electronically, piece count weights can be measured once and stored, rather than weighed again and again each time a new count must be taken.
