Change in the technology buzzword blizzard - Automation specialist explains the latest trend: hyper-automation
Hyper-automation, as the name may suggest, relates to excessive automation. This is something that Elon Musk pleaded guilty to in 2018 after the production line for the Tesla Model 3 came to a complete halt for four days.
Most conversations around the industrial IoT focus on its applications in assembly lines or inventory management. By comparison, processes like water management fly under the radar, but they contain the same potential.
In the age of IoT, warehouse automation is at the forefront of many industries. In this series , we will dive into the different technologies used in warehouse automation and the important components to drive its success and efficiency.
Supply chain visibility and diversification have become top priorities for manufacturers, retailers and logistic providers. Today, they are faced with challenges they never expected, but - luckily - they are using new technologies to solve them.
Forward, Toward a New Normal - A transitional playbook for resuming manufacturing operations in the [hopefully soon to be post] Covid-19 Era
As companies and their workforces emerge from their forced coronavirus hiatus, a clear picture of a "new normal" for the manufacturing business and its employees remains elusive, with only hazy possibilities and vague pathways forward.
Accelerating Manufacturers' Digital Transformation through a Free Peer-to-Peer Learning & Networking Virtual Event
Internet of Manufacturing, the premier conference series for industry 4.0 leaders, announces that its 2020 event goes virtual from September 28 - 30.
Digitalising a production facility typically takes years of development, but one Sandvik tube site brought remote manufacturing to its stay-at-home workers in just two days.
Applying advanced intelligence and cognitive technologies likewise enables organisations to respond dynamically to changes in demand and customise product, ensure high product quality, and optimise production processes in real time.
To truly maximize IIoT, manufacturers need a single solution that supports scalable-IIoT deployments and creates a collaborative environment that's data-driven and provides transparency across the entire production process.
Omron Helps Life Sciences Company Upgrade Prototype with Cutting-edge Technology and Cut Costs by 30% With Solution Using NX-I/O
Omron gave preference to EtherCAT over DeviceNet because the latter is a slower CAN-based protocol designed for sensors and it uses screw-type connections that can be difficult to install and maintain.
There are several different architectures and protocols that can be used to gather data on the factory floor. The two most common protocols are very different, which makes them worth comparing for their effectiveness in IIoT - OPC UA and MQTT/Sparkplug.
Supported by an integrated ecosystem, the technologies are composed of augmented reality, rapid application development, autonomous robots, digital simulation, and additive manufacturing.
The increasing availability and affordability of technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices, data interpretation software and bandwidth mean that more manufacturers can use digital twins to improve their processes.
While the IoT has shown incredible promise within the corporate and consumer environment, the true value of the IoT can be found in the industrial space, which has aptly become known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
A lot has been said about "digital transformations," and with good reason. Companies that want to survive realistically in a world with global competition and pressures require a paradigm shift to move forward.
