Wireless connectivity enables manufacturers to more easily rearrange their production facilities to meet specific needs, minimizing costly downtime between production runs for multiple clients.
Getting a robust, firing-on-all-cylinders data operation is a far less labor-intensive process than many seem to suspect, and the dividends it yields invariably outpace whatever effort is expended on getting it off the ground.
New kinds of PLCs are contributing to new approaches to manufacturing and industrial systems. Many people are referring to the more general trend as a 'new industrial revolution' or 'industry 4.0.'
As industries adopt data-driven operations, there is increased demand for advanced technologies. These technologies maximize the potential and returns on investment in industrial automation systems.
Mike Bradford, Strategic Business Development Director at DELMIA gave us his expert insight on the impact IIOT can have on a manufacturing firm when used effectively, and how this can provide a real return on investment for business owners.
Raising the Roof (on Network Capacity) - New "Indoor Backhaul" System to Help Meet Rapidly-Growing Bandwidth Requirements for IIoT Applications
Wireless backhaul systems operating in the 60 GHz "millimeter wave" band that can connect through walls and "beam steer" around corners are now available.
After extensive research and analysis with leading industry manufacturers, machine builders and end users, we have compiled the Top 5 Questions to Ask When Evaluating an IIOT Solution.
By going digital and adopting a data-first strategy, manufacturing leaders can transform their operations and better prepare themselves for the future.
One of the main goals of digital transformation is to transform the shop floor into smart manufacturing to help manufacturers to manage their core production operations digitally to maximize the production by minimizing machine downtime and quality losses.
Like any new technology, AI solutions face adoption and cultural challenges. Even with Industry 4.0 technology, manufacturers sometimes fail to adapt to the solutions available to them.
Insights are more than data, it's about improving how your teams and production lines work together. Insights are crucial as they let cross-functional teams see the same data and understand the real-time state of the entire operation. Learn more in this Q&A.
The Missing Link in Industry 4.0's Connectivity Chain - Overcoming IIot Deployment Challenges Through eSIMs
While IoT SIM cards do the job, these challenges are hard to ignore when there's a solution on hand. eSIMs, or embedded SIMs, are a digital alternative to physical SIMs, connecting devices to a network over the air.
One of the biggest challenges that enterprises face in their digitalization efforts is having too many complex data silos and applications that don't follow a common architecture.
In the wake of landmark climate event, COP26, manufacturers are striving to align their activities with the global net zero targets. But the sector has a long way to go. It currently produces more than 16 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.
5G networks are opening new opportunities to manufacturers including speeding-up the IoT with faster data transfer rates and more efficient connections and communication between devices. Therefore, 5G will be key to the growth of the IoT in 2022.

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac® linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac® is the ideal solution for countless applications.
