Automobile manufacturing as we know it is failing; can microfactories be the answer to how we make the mobility products of the future?
With fewer docks required because each dock can handle higher volumes, the automatic unloading system processes up to 6,000 parcels per hour which means that the maximum capacity of the sorting machines can be utilized achieving optimal overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
Too often, businesses start with an "intent to connect" instead of focusing on a business model. Companies that are just looking to create a connected version of a product fail to solve actual problems that are affecting the business.
A mass flow meter (MFM) has five major components: flow body, flow conditioning section, flow sensor tube, bypass, and electronics. A mass flow controller (MFC) has the same components as an MFM, but also has an integral control valve mounted on the same flow body as the MFM
Open house event will present innovations for automotive manufacturers and packaging, pharmaceutical and food processing industries
Schneider Electric's Batam Smart Factory recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Fourth Industrial Revolution Lighthouse
Schneider Electric's Smart Factory Program has launched nine showcase factories around the world, demystifying digital transformation for industry
The proven impact of machine learning models has pushed more investment toward their development. Still there are plenty more gains to be realized.
Logistics kitting organizes and even assembles parts used in the manufacturing of a product so they can be delivered to the point of use, saving time on the line. It is often the best example of Lean Manufacturing in practice, eliminating wasted time in production.
Even when you can connect directly to whatever it is that you are measuring and design the system yourself, you might encounter issues. Inconsistencies can arise from power failures, wifi outages, faulty or damaged equipment.
AI is big business-US venture capital investment in the sector reached $6.6 billion in the first three quarters of 2018, compared to $3.9 billion in the same period the year before.
Without compromising quality, focusing on optimizing plant processes will reduce time and money spent, therefore increasing profits. Here are five optimization techniques for manufacturing facilities.
Sixty-five percent of supplier companies said they received more work in 2018 than in the previous year-a huge jump from the MFGWatch 2016 results of 40 percent (the last time an MFGWatch report was published).
UrsaLeo is an IoT platform company that aims to make it easy for companies to collect their sensor data in the cloud, store it, visualize it and integrate it with other IT systems. This is done in a highly secure and scalable fashion.
The role of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in Digital transformation as part of disruptive technology space is relentlessly becoming a sneak peek for FTE (Full time equivalent) benefit and ROI (Return on Investment) realization.
Cognitive technologies can be defined as methods that perform or supplement tasks, help to make better decisions, and complete objectives that usually require human intelligence, such as planning, reasoning, and learning.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
