In the factories of the future the focus is on humans

In the factories of the future the focus is on humans
Digitise or be left in the dust? This is the pivotal question facing today's factories, logistics centres and power stations. Industry 4.0 is fast becoming the new standard, and that means change. IT and machinery manufacturing are converging, new business models are popping up like mushrooms, and AI is making its way into factories. And everything revolves around one central element: people power.

How do you switch to lean manufacturing?

How do you switch to lean manufacturing?
In this new era of production techniques and technologies, new buzzwords are being circulated throughout the internet. ‘Lean’ is a relatively new model for managing businesses, especially in fields like manufacturing, software development and construction. Basically, anywhere where massive workloads are involved and effective distribution of them is necessary within a tight accommodation of budget and resources.

Sensors determine correct positioning for Industry 4.0

Sensors determine correct positioning for Industry 4.0
Detecting objects in systems is such an important part of the automation industry. Objects have to be reliably detected and measured, as well as verifying that they are correctly positioned. The scope of possible applications is almost limitless and is continuously expanding (for example, detecting valve and flap positions, the position of PV panels for optimal exposure to light, the position of a ship's rudder, and automation tasks in the machine-tool industry.)

How digitisation is revolutionising work

How digitisation is revolutionising work
New forms of work and collaboration come from digitalisation, while at the same time it confronts the industry with a new set of challenges. As the need for a technically qualified workforce goes up, the number of qualified workers continues to go down. The HANNOVER MESSE supporting program titled ‘Career 4.0’ explores the different requirements and opportunities in this sphere.

Sensor data globally - beyond the local company cloud

Sensor data globally - beyond the local company cloud
Making sensor data and information from different sources available globally and linking this data and information in a meaningful way - this is the crux of Industry 4.0. New business ideas make it necessary to make this information globally available and accessible not only within a company but also beyond the boundaries of the company and its location.

EEF Manufacturing conference: security, smart cities and Brexit

EEF Manufacturing conference: security, smart cities and Brexit
At this year’s EEF Manufacturing conference it is safe to say, the day did not disappoint. With a lot riding on the consequences to UK industry and companies with Brexit looming, the largest number of people to date attended the day to hear answers and truths about what the professionals and our Government think it will happen. With speeches from Liam Fox Secretary of State, and Leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, there was a definite feel of excitement from the audience, and the general theme of ‘Global Britain: Change, Opportunity, Growth’ ran significantly throughout the day.
