In this article, I will delve into the most common errors manufacturers make when working to create a smart factory, along with advice on how to prevent these mistakes.
Over the next five years, it's estimated that 25% of industrial spending will go toward automation. This spending will impact everything from logistics to retail to auto manufacturing and is expected to help improve several areas, including speed, safety, and product quality.
In this blog post, we'll explore some of the key trends and challenges facing robotics providers today, and offer insights into how they can navigate this dynamic landscape to build successful businesses.
Today, the super-high bandwidth and low latency of 5G have tremendous potential to transform all industries, especially manufacturing. They need intelligent networks to ensure manufacturers get the most from their 5G campuses.
INVENTEC COLLABORATES WITH MICROSOFT TO DELIVER SMART FACTORY SOLUTIONS ON MICROSOFT AZURE PRIVATE 5G CORE
The solutions integrate Inventec's 5G private network solutions, NEXCOM's top notch AIoT (AI + IoT) Industry 4.0 cross-border integration systems and solutions, and Microsoft HoloLens to build smart factories.
Different types of CNC machines will appear in smart factories. Here's what you need to know about upgrading and updating your machines.
Introducing simple and effective technologies in the right ways can enable manufacturers to get more from their existing operations while also attracting and retaining talent for the long term.
The three-episode series will take a closer look at the driving forces behind Industry 4.0, interviewing experts in the field about how artificial intelligence (AI), connectivity and edge computing technologies are shaping the next major leap forward for manufacturing.
The collaboration will focus on enabling the digital transformation of factory processes that are highly secured and highly reliable through facilitating 5G wireless infrastructure integration, smart heterogeneous equipment integration and OT security system integration.
In Guidance Automation's 2022 research, 64% of respondents said that safety concerns around physical accidents caused by automated systems were preventing them from implementing warehouse or manufacturing plant automation.
Modern authentication and access control systems can help by preventing unauthorized use of machines and ensuring that the correct parts and consumables are used.
Both autonomous manufacturing and hybrid autonomous manufacturing introduce a level of automation never seen before. The system does all the work, with machines and technology as a strong foundation, and people are relegated to monitoring and support.
Smart factories, in particular, could transform the automaking industry to reach its full potential. As the sector grows more competitive, manufacturers that embrace this trend early could see promising results.
Manufacturers must know what challenges they face and how to overcome them to make the most of these investments. Here are the most common automation challenges and how to address them.
Those manufacturers that digitize their operations will gain significant advantages, and those that don't will have a more difficult time catching up.

A Zaber gantry kit comes with everything you need to build a customized XY gantry system or XYZ gantry system. These gantry systems feature coordinated multi-axis motion, plug-and-play operation, easy integration with end-effector options, and built-in IO and E-Stop capabilities. An intuitive ASCII interface allows the user to easily communicate with the gantry systems using our free software, either Zaber Motion Library with APIs for several popular languages or Zaber Console. Third party terminal programs that can communicate over a serial port can also be used.
