Robotics increasingly integral to Industry 4.0 success
Instead of me facing you with another rhetorical question about, what technology we will see in 2018, or how digitalisation is all anyone wants to talk about, let me tell you about what I learnt from semiconductor company Infineon. The big focus for the company here is robotics, and more importantly; how does robotics translate into business opportunities? Well first of all the question is not necessarily how, but why? Infineon is a company that has four types of lead applications so why is robotics such an important focus?

The future of production at SPS Drives 2017

The future of production at SPS Drives 2017
Production is a large part of the engineering industry, and everyone is concerned and focussed on the future; Industry 4.0 and digitalisation. Therefore, a Smart Production Tour at SPS Drives seemed very fitting and exciting. Engineering Specifier went along to the three hour event to find out from a range of companies all there was to know about ‘smart production’ from WSCAD, Beckhoff, Balluff, Bosch Rexroth and B&R.

The safety aspect of Industry 4.0

The safety aspect of Industry 4.0
With all the talk of Industry 4.0 we need to address the very important issue of safety. Honeywell are tackling the safety side of Industry 4.0 with its personal protective equipment, as every year there are huge numbers of tragedies and cost with casualties and diseases that are not acknowledged. Taking a look at Industry 4.0 and the safety industry as a whole, there is a €476bn cost of workplace related injuries and ill health to the EU, and according to the EU-OSHA, 98% of work related deaths in the EU are caused by work related illnesses.
