Ten tips for modernising your HMI/SCADA system

Ageing industrial infrastructure can make it difficult to meet daily challenges for industrial plants and manufacturing companies. Fortunately, there are cost-effective ways to solve these challenges.

CIMON at IMTS 2022

CIMON will feature a wall-to-wall video screen connected to our 4 product kiosks that will allow visitors to try out CIMON hardware and software in real time. We will have sample project displays visible on the large screen.

Human Machine Interface (HMI) and its Importance in Industrial Automation

Human Machine Interface; in short "HMI" is the means by which an operator can interact or control the machine or the entire process. It all started with hard wired push buttons and indicator lights on a control panel.

Why Combining Your HMI & PLC Is the Smarter Move

While PLCs control mechanisms, electronics, and other low-level devices, HMIs empower operators with visualization and touch controls. Together, HMIs and PLCs pave the way for efficient and flexible industrial workflows.

Linux-based Software for Automation

Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.

Smart Manufacturing Control

This article discusses new technology features within the CNC, the HMI (Human Machine Interface) and making the process easier to manage, as well as how that relates to the machine motion control and specifically for multi-axis applications.

Control & Automation with Vision™ V700 for Packaging & Bagging Systems

When a major producer and packager of balanced feed for livestock such as poultry, swine, and horses, house pets, and fish farming needs turned to them for a an efficient, fast, and reliable packaging solution, IGCP Engineering turned to Unitronics.

How Industry 4.0 is changing human-technology interaction

Ben Rossi for InformationAge: Â Accelerated by technologies such as 3D printing and intelligent robots, the role of the human machine interface (HMI) is becoming more sophisticated. This is altering the way industries approach increasingly complex processes of machines and systems in order to improve efficiency and decrease downtime. Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) are at the centre of new technological approaches, development, production and the entire logistics chain - otherwise known as smart factory automation. HMI is implemented in any industry where human intervention with a machine or automated device is necessary. The high rate of demand for HMI is being driven by the need for enhanced efficiency, data security and compliance, mobility, remote services and reliable hardware. Â Cont'd...
