Improve without Change: Extending Your Industrial Assets to Do More with What You Have

Data connectivity and collection has evolved past the workarounds and silos that long-plagued industrial ecosystems. New technology is transforming data accessibility-without interrupting your vital processes or requiring new equipment.

How to Optimize Artificial Intelligence in the Manufacturing Industry

Artificial intelligence is an essential factor in the industrial sector when used wisely. Its adoption has brought many advantages to the manufacturing industry. It has made work easier. Let us embrace technology and optimize it in our day to day activities.

Using Open Software in Manufacturing

We see a shift from big, monolithic software by large vendors to modular, highly specific components by smaller ones. This allows manufacturing companies to become more agile in the tools they use, ultimately allowing them to more easily find the best tool for the job.

Understanding the Basics of PLCs

PLCs are special computers designed to control industrial processes and machines. Software PLCs offer great communications functionality through communicating with other computer equipment or controllers.

Why Conventional Planning Fails

This bimodal distribution is rampant throughout industry. It can be very simply described as "too much of the wrong and too little of the right" at any point in time and "too much in total" over time.

Wind River's AXON Predict Analytics for VxWorks Enables IoT Analytics at the Edge

What do I want to eat yesterday? Seems like a strange question. Yet IoT systems are architected to often ask very similar questions by aggregating a massive amount of data in a central repository where every so often a data scientist can evaluate and perhaps realize some insights that would have been best realized and responded to at the time the events were taking place at the edge.

What is IO-Link

IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.

Elon Musk: Robot software will make Tesla worth as much as Apple

Jeremy C. Ownens for MarketWatch: Musk will put his machinery where his mouth is with Model 3, battery and solar panel production lines launching soon

Electro-Mechanical Assembly Press Technology Moves Li-Ion Battery Manufacturer A Step Closer To Perfection

Promess became involved with the battery manufacturer when the hydraulic presses, originally specified for both the pressing and assembly operations, proved to be unable to deliver the level of consistent process control required.

RTOS 101: Semaphores and Queues

The use of a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) is increasingly common in embedded software designs.

EtherCAT Soft Motion Control Auto-Configuration

Configuring servo motors and drives through network control software can be cumbersome and time-consuming

Industry 4.0-based Network Manager Ensures Solid Industrial Connectivity

Network connectivity of industrial equipment and devices is a vital element of Industry 4.0. If the connection fails, all data communication from field devices to back-end servers and cloud networks will be halted, disrupting the operation of Industry 4.0.

How Embedded Devices and the Cloud Are Leading a Paradigm Shift in Manufacturing and Production

This cannot be a simple extension of todays processes, but needs to be a complete rethink of how manufacturing and production systems are designed to take full advantage of the cloud and the analytics that it brings to bear.

Symmetric Multiprocessing or Virtualization: Maximizing the Value and Power of a Soft-Control Architecture

For a truly simplified and streamlined architecture that is high-performing, scalable, efficient. and built for long-term value, an SMP-enabled Soft-Control Architecture is recommended.
