Fluid power management and control systems are just the latest in a long line of industrial technologies to see support from the Internet of Things. IoT is revolutionizing the hydraulics and pneumatics sectors.
Modernizing existing production lines from Bosch while reducing the number of central stations from three to two: Machine manufacturer GAteK has achieved this feat thanks to pneumatics from Emerson's AVENTICS™, which cuts cycle times in half.
Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
