In the next 10 years, 4.6MM manufacturing jobs will become open and only 2.2MM are likely to be filled. As this skills gap widens for manufacturing firms, it's going to be critical to run their organizations as efficiently as possible.
Edge computing uses dedicated, on-premise resources at the shop-floor level, rather than the remote servers that cloud computing relies on. This provides a significant increase in the rate and amount of data that manufacturers can process in real-time.
The new center will provide a broad portfolio of dimensional metrology and inspection equipment and services to a wide variety of industries including: automotive, medical, aerospace, defense, machine tools and general manufacturing job shops. With almost 170 employees.
The manufacturing sector currently contributes Â£6.7 trillion to the global economy. Despite being subject to regular negative reports, the UK continues to play a significant role in the evolution and growth of global manufacturing.
How can controls, automation, and instrumentation help with integration and use of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies?
When plant operators turn to a virtual desktop infrastructure to run their industrial plant processes, they need an endpoint device that can reliably deliver the efficiency they are looking for in spite of harsh plant conditions.
In terms of manufacturing, flexibility refers to the machines being adaptable and responsive to change. In the case of flexible manufacturing, the machines are able to adapt processes and scale their operations according to different situations...
Using the robots built-in Wi-Fi interface, operators will use tablets installed at each press to call the robot to pick up finished products and take them directly to the quality department, optimizing the robots use.
By tapping into existing maintenance or equipment logs, a manufacturer can apply machine learning to predict which connected devices or machines will be in need of servicing or forecast required inventory levels across warehouse locations...
Being prepared can help prevent costly equipment or facility damage. You can't avoid every disaster, but being ready for them when they do occur can help reduce downtime and save you a lot of money on equipment repair and replacement in the long run.
A completely replaced controls system. 5 panels with all they contain. Under 7 days downtime. 100% production on day 1.
Think of AR in an IIoT manufacturing context: now technicians with AR can remotely monitor, change and maintain systems without putting the operator in danger; however, AR requires a massive amount of network resources.
The Xiamen Hub is ABBs largest and one of our most advanced manufacturing sites, and it demonstrates the potential of Industry 4.0 on our own premises.
Partnering with tech companies whose investments in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are aimed at streamlining manufacturing processes is the shortest, most reliable route to your company winning the future.
Manufacturers, who invest in the latest manufacturing technologies and innovation ecosystems, will become more competitive than those who compete on price alone. Advanced technologies are producing better quality products, that, in turn, deliver higher margins ...

Maxim Integrated MAX3523 DOCSIS 3.1 Programmable-Gain Amplifiers are designed to deliver 68dBmV output power while meeting DOCSIS 3.1 requirements. These amplifiers utilize high-voltage CMOS process that enables the device to deliver high dynamic range while minimizing power dissipation under a 5V supply rail. The MAX3523 programmable-gain amplifiers cover 5MHz to 204MHz output bandwidth and consume 3.5W power with 5V supply voltage. These amplifiers consist of programmable power codes that allow operation at reduced power dissipation. Typical applications include DOCSIS 3.1 upstream (D3.1 US), Cable Modem (CM), and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).
