Competitive factories need to leverage the power of data

Competitive factories need to leverage the power of data
Boosting responsiveness, productivity and flexibility on the factory floor is the key to enhanced competitiveness. Efficient data management using the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is therefore increasingly important in extending communication beyond the production cell and ensuring the successful deployment of new and updated automation systems.

Robots in the factory of the future

Robots in the factory of the future
The International Federation of Robotics predicts that by 2020 more than 1.7 million industrial robots will be working in factories worldwide. Robots move continuously in multiple axes and must be supplied with data and energy by cables without interruption, so these cables need careful consideration. For applications where robot cables are subjected to torsional stress, the cables have to be designed and manufactured in a completely different way to cables for linear motion.
