The productive manufacturers of the future will be those who can adjust to the advanced change in sourcing, production and distribution, and are responsive and adaptable enough to take advantage of new logistical technologies.
High Speed Machining is more than just an interesting idea with a compelling past. The science is out, and the debate is over, implementing High Speed Machining Techniques is a sound economic decision, that decreases costs while increasing productivity and efficiency.
The food manufacturing industry stands apart due to its continual reliance on people. No matter how much automation exists in a plant, people still need to oversee things. Employees will not become obsolete with the introduction of IIoT.
Every company is concerned about quality, but leading companies are leveraging automated systems and IoT data to test their products and improve quality at a new level. Leaders in this industry include Tesla, Raymond, and Daimler Trucks.
The 2-piece Uni-Guide design eliminated the tedious assembly and alignment process previously needed, saving time and also making it an easy field retrofit for existing machines.
OEMs turn to one-stop metal parts shops that can transition to more cost-effective fabrication and machining techniques as demand increases.
The acatech Industry 4.0 Maturity Index provides companies a guideline for a structured approach. Apart from technological requirements, the digitalisation strategy must not disregard the adjustment of organisational structures and qualification of employees and must focus on IT security in all phases.
