A survey by McKinsey states that the adoption of automated technologies in the food and beverage industry is relatively slow compared to other sectors, with only 48 per cent of manufacturers considering themselves ready for Industry 4.0.
In this article, we are giving you a complete guide through factory and manufacturing automation. Continue reading to find out more about the nature of both of these groundbreaking processes that have changed the industry approach toward production forever.
By 2025, manufacturers and suppliers implementing Industry 4.0 tactics are expected to create $3.7 trillion in value, according to research by McKinsey and the World Economic Forum.
Fluid power management and control systems are just the latest in a long line of industrial technologies to see support from the Internet of Things. IoT is revolutionizing the hydraulics and pneumatics sectors.
When organizations invest in process optimization, experience has shown us that simpler changes have the best chance of being implemented in full and lasting for years.
The process splits materials at the molecular level under a non-contact process with tremendous speed resulting in no material loss, chips, lateral cracks, protrusions, hooks, and flares, or any other forms of contaminants.
Manufacturing is forecast to come roaring back in the second half of 2021, according to many leading indices. This is fantastic news for the US economy but poses significant challenges for the manufacturing sector.
A challenge lies in that fact that every single smart device connected to the IoT generates huge amounts of data. All of this information must be processed and analyzed to successfully take advantage of the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0.
The entire face of team communications has changed, escalating the need for alternate ways to communicate with the growing mobile workforce. Internal and external communications are merging as businesses strive to reconnect with disconnected teams off-site.
With funding from the Tennessee Valley Authority, Watt Bar Utility District (WBUD) needed to streamline automation of its 32 tank and pump stations. System integrator Quality Controls LLC decided to use PLC, HMI, and SCADA products from CIMON to automate these facilities.
The prioritization of M&A may already be underway. We know that despite some early reticence because of coronavirus uncertainty, industrial C-Suites still prize M&A activity as a main lever of growth, value creation, and competitive differentiation.
To better understand how manufacturing is transforming into a high-tech haven, it is important to examine the most promising technologies and applications in industrial automation.
There are a number of ways to maintain industrial machinery. If you search around, you will most likely come across these terms: preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance.
Manufacturers of highly configurable products want to maximize engineering resources. By capturing knowledge and decision-making, the newest best-in-class engineering automation software speeds development of subsequent design iterations.
BIM brings together every minute detail of the asset in one place to ensure all stakeholders - whether they are at the office or on the construction site - have access to the same information. It illustrates the entire building lifecycle.
