New starting points for building a smart food factory

New starting points for building a smart food factory
Food producers currently span the full automation spectrum, from huge volume beverage production and packaging plants to artisan food producers that do everything they can by hand. There is a large portion of the UK food industry however that sits between these two extremes and it has been slow to adopt smart factory technology.

Energy saving in mines and quarries

Energy saving in mines and quarries
Most mines and quarries contain a proliferation of electric motors, they vary in size and importance from large machines critical to site safety, to smaller examples that enable basic plant processes. Each one is drawing electricity and unless it is already part of a smart control solution, it could be contributing more towards energy and general cost saving.

Automation plays a blinder for craft brewers

Automation plays a blinder for craft brewers
The perfect beer is a harmonious blend of art and science. Automation can help by performing the measured and repetitive tasks while allowing brewers to focus on more creative, interesting and rewarding aspects. So when Sadler’s Ales, a historic Black Country brewery, started to grow its business, it decided to adopt an automated process control solution from Mitsubishi Electric to improve productivity and make the quality of its craft beers more consistent.

The robot arms that are getting everywhere

The robot arms that are getting everywhere
Recent developments are opening new opportunities and catapulting the industrial robot arm into a journey around the production environment. Robots undoubtably take the drudgery out of many repetitive manufacturing, packaging and processing tasks. Engineers are generally fascinated by the idea of improving production processes and keen to integrate robots, so the decision as to whether one is used or not boils down to economics; operators want to see a good case made for the return on investment before giving the green light.

When automation meets craftsmanship

When automation meets craftsmanship
Although often perceived as a threat to traditional industries, automation can actually empower artisans to have greater control over skilled manufacturing processes and enable improved product quality. When Denby Pottery, a premier producer of handcrafted tableware, looked at refurbishing its process control systems it turned to Mitsubishi Electric’s distributor BPX to provide a reliable and well-connected solution to efficiently monitor, control and improve their clay production line.

The future can be unlimited with Mitsubishi Electric solutions

The future can be unlimited with Mitsubishi Electric solutions
At SPS IPC Drives 2018, Mitsubishi Electric demonstrated that the company can do much more than just factory automation. The interaction and networking capabilities between Mitsubishi Electric factory automation and building technologies was demonstrated virtually and interactively on a large display. Visitors were able to explore 3D worlds interactively with 360° views of applications and solution concepts via touchscreen technology.

Want to know how to achieve faster SCADA projects?

Want to know how to achieve faster SCADA projects?
Within the myriad of possible applications for SCADA software there is a common theme for both the end user and system integrator, and that is a need to respond to competitive pressures. The reason manufacturing, process, logistics and utility businesses all invest in new control and monitoring software is to build more efficient, cost-effective operations. Even within publicly owned utilities there is significant pressure to match the operational efficiency of commercial enterprises.

Holistic solutions for smart manufacturing

Holistic solutions for smart manufacturing
As digitalisation, Big Data and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) take their course, the classical linear manufacturing model is changing: complex, integrated networks are developing that aim to achieve higher productivity with lower resource consumption. Machines, devices and applications must become smarter accordingly. When it comes to investment decisions, cooperation with an experienced solution partner can bring considerable advantages. At the SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, Mitsubishi Electric is presenting solutions, concepts and collaborations to support companies in the integration of smart manufacturing projects.

Cyber-security in the emerging digital world

Cyber-security in the emerging digital world
It seems a long time ago now since various malware attacks on the operational layer changed the security landscape and highlighted vulnerabilities in the de-facto automation architecture. However, as we move along the road towards Smart Manufacturing with a view to improving efficiency, productivity and reliability of supply using the principles of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the subject of cyber-security is becoming arguably even more important.

Industrial robots use the cloud to access Artificial Intelligence

Industrial robots use the cloud to access Artificial Intelligence
Through its new cloud-based solution for pro-active maintenance based on the AI platform within IBM Watson Mitsubishi enables smart analysis of operational data to predict and highlight future maintenance requirements. The theory is that sometimes service schedule requirements for robots are inadvertently missed which, despite the extended duty-cycles and the general reliability of modern robots, is not a healthy situation for continuous plant operation.
